<strong><u>DAN THE FAN: Feel good factor must arrive at SN1</u></strong>

James Spencer 0
It’s amazing how one moment in a game can change everything in a season. This was the case on 3rd September 2011, when after a disappointing start to the new season under Paolo Di Canio, Town hosted Rotherham United in front of the Sky Sports cameras. We came into the game sitting 21st in League […]

<strong><u>DAN THE FAN: Green shoots slowly emerge at SN1</u></strong>

After the disappointing performance from management and players in the League Cup 1st Round, the Town faithful needed to see a positive response on the road in Cumbria and back in Wiltshire this week, thankfully some progression is starting to emerge. Two draws against decent League Two sides in Carlisle Utd and Leyton Orient see […]

<strong><u>DAN THE FAN: Darcy makes instant impression at SN1</u></strong>

James Spencer 0
After the disappointment of last weekend, Scott Lindsey and his side had to show a response to get the Town faithful on side early in the season with history telling us a bad first impression is hard to shake off in football. Sadly at 2 pm, when the team was announced the three-centre back system […]

<strong><u>DAN THE FAN: First Impressions at SN1 key for Lindsey</u></strong>

James Spencer 0
Ten weeks after the disappointment at Vale Park and the new football season has arrived, and Town has plenty of new faces on the pitch and in the dugout. Scott Lindsey is the man chosen to lead our great club after the departure of Ben Garner, in my last article, I said, like many others, […]

<strong><u>DAN THE FAN: The Lindsay Era has begun</u></strong>

Finally, after weeks and weeks of looking at social media daily, pointlessly browsing betting odds, and endless rumours of different names from the footballing world, Swindon Town have announced Ben Garner’s replacement twelve days after he left the club. With Assistant Manager Scott Lindsay making the step up to First Team Head Coach, on a […]

<strong><u>Trust Review of STFC Accounts 2020-2021</u></strong>

James Spencer 0
STFC has released the latest year accounts from June 2020 to May 2021.  The accounts relate to the last year that the old regime was in control, with the takeover being completed in July 2021. Overall, the details in the accounts are limited, which makes a detailed analysis of the accounts not possible.  However, we […]

<strong><u>DAN THE FAN: End of Season Awards 21/22</u></strong>

James Spencer 0
After yesterday’s article, where we looked at each player and their contributions to our overachievement this season, I want to look at a couple of players who deserve special recognition for their performance this season. Before we look at these players, news from the South London Press broke last night that Head Coach Ben Garner […]

<strong><u>DAN THE FAN: Player Ratings 21/22</u></strong>

James Spencer 0
With our promotion hopes coming to an end last week, it’s time we said goodbye to the 2021/22 season, a campaign that started in ruins and uncertainty but ended with the fans being proud of their club again and excited for the future ahead.  With the retained and released list announced yesterday, we have some […]

<strong><u>DAN THE FAN: Penalty heartbreak won’t eclipse superb campaign</u></strong>

James Spencer 0
Firstly, if you’re reading this, you’re a much stronger human being than me, as I certainly don’t want to be reliving our playoff campaign. After such a long, memorable, entertaining ten months, the 21/22 campaign ended in penalty heartbreak. Looking at both games, there wasn’t much between the two sides, as Swindon was the better […]
