DAN THE FAN: Keeping Grant in January is vital for promotion hopes

James Spencer 0
Town’s run without a win in all competitions now stretches to over a month after taking a point against underperforming Plymouth at the County Ground last weekend. After being the better side throughout the first half Swindon made their dominance count in added time as a superb team move saw Eoin Doyle neatly chip the […]

DAN THE FAN: Keep the faith or face continual disappointment

Tuesday night’s home defeat to Plymouth Argyle saw Swindon’s poor run of results continue as Richie Wellens’ side have now lost four of their last five in all competitions, resulting in a lot of the early enthusiasm for this season starting to creep away. But despite this poor run of results, all Town fans must […]

For the second time in just eleven days, an injury to a key player plays a major role in the outcome as Town never recover and were second best all over the pitch against a well-organised Newport County side. Going by the manager’s post-match press conference on Saturday evening it seems Dion Conroy has suffered […]

DAN THE FAN: Wellens’ Town squad oozes character missing from previous seasons

Town’s emphatic start to the campaign gathered more pace last Saturday as they blew away their opponents in another near-perfect away performance. The tactics employed by Richie Wellens exploited any weaknesses in the Leyton Orient side resulting in Town having the game wrapped up at half-time, with goals from Keshi Anderson, a deflected Rob Hunt […]

The good times are back at Swindon Town

James Spencer 0
After a couple of dismal seasons in the 4th division there is a buzz around the football club and fans, and it feels that the good times are back at Swindon Town. Just 7 games into the season Swindon sit in 4th place after a 3-1 away win at Leyton Orient. Two home games are […]

DAN THE FAN: Yates’ return causes selection headache

James Spencer 0
The feel-good factor at Swindon Town continues to gather momentum as Richie Wellens’ side were unlucky to leave Cheltenham with just a point after dominating an entertaining first 45 minutes at Whaddon Road. Despite this season being in its infancy, it feels different to anything over the past few years, a feel-good, positive atmosphere seems […]
