Panto villain level is all I do nowadays, I'd happily have a pint with just about any of them these days.

I remember us giving John Aldridge a fair bit of stick in a game against Tranmere; he scored a late equaliser and gave us a wave as he did so. I remember thinking "We had that one coming..."
In a similar vein... we were playing Norwich in the... I guess early 90's...and Robert Fleck was getting the standard 'you fat bastard' abuse from the Town fans and he suddenly turned towards them, lifted his shirt and patted his belly. They absolutely loved him from then on (or the rest of the game at least)

Ironically, I'm pretty sure Fleck was not in the slightest bit fat in real terms and 99% of the Town fans giving it out were waaaaaaaaay fatter than him....

John McGinley and Joey Beauchamp were the big ones of my childhood.

Not to get too boomer who reads Daily Mail but there is far too many snowflakes these days for a lot of it. Call someone a cunt for being a cunt and they'll be playing the racism angle or something to turn it in to something it never was.

Micky Quinn, obviously, and, for no obviously apparent reason other than he played for and captained Oxford, Mike Ford. That man just wound  me up.

Your point is valid and when Iíve gone over the last two season - itís almost like the ground - atmosphere misses that hatred / vitriol.

It used to be universal fan uniting thing. Us and them, us against the world. No matter what you or the fans around you thought of this Town player or that Town player you all joined in with the anti Oxford chants.

All weíve done the last two season (in my admittedly limit experience) is make inaudible noises ended with STFC from the West County.

I also really missed the fuck off chant.

Yeah for someone who lived in Covingham he was strangely quite happy to go out of his way to piss off Swindon fans.

Lee Hughes was another.  Deservedly picked on but often talented enough to have the last laugh.  Which he'd do openly.
