Defeat in Dagenham: Get some perspective
Successive defeats was hardly what we were all expecting having (eventually) put a solid 3 past Crewe on the opening day. Yet a sense of reality and perspective is sorely missing from yet another vocal minority in the post match reactions to our narrow 1-0 defeat at Dagenham & Redbridge. It’s almost like Paul Hart was still in charge…
It’s all well and good getting on the blower, sending your text messages and tweets to BBC Wiltshire saying crap like “I never agreed with appointing Paolo Di Canio, Bodin should’ve got the job” and “well done Paolo Di Canio, non-league here we come” but what use are these overly negative, inane, clueless and hysteric comments really going to make?
Put something constructive into the debate and at least make some suggestions. If you think Paolo should’ve played someone, dropped someone, dragged a kicking and screaming Rockin’ Robin out to replace Phil Smith at half time… then say it!
Get behind the team! Even if the unthinkable and Oxford manage to get one over us this Sunday, still get behind the team!
With three, yes just three games played this season there’s still another 129 points to play for, so we might still be in with a chance of finishing 10th if we’re lucky…
It seems people have a very short memory. Look back to how Swindon started the 1985/86 season under Lou Macari with 7 points from the first 8 games, firmly in the relegation zone and 14 points off the top. And then what did we do..? Oh yea, we found second gear, third, fourth and fifth and blitzed the League finishing with 102 points.
So get real, get a perspective, get behind Paolo Di Canio and your team.
