Vic Morgan Blog: Three wins in a row
BBC Radio Swindon commentator Vic Morgan continues his new weekly blog only here on The Washbag.
THE JOY OF SIX…
Points out of six. Yes it’s been a great week to be a Town fan.
Paul Sturrock’s Southend United came visiting last Saturday, and on the face of it would provide a stern test. Swindon going into the game off the back of a morale boosting win against Rotherham United, and looking to take a maximum return from two home games.
And so it proved.
A wonder strike by Jonathon Smith and a tidy finish from Mehdi Kerrouche, sealed the win.
It was nice to see Paul Sturrock looking well, and his waistcoat would have impressed the fashion sense of Paolo I’m sure.
It was also nice to see genuine respect between the two men after the game, especially as another manager was soon to make his feelings known about Swindon.
So a great Saturday, and a nice feeling driving back to Devon.
Town upwardly mobile in League Two, and lots to reflect on.
Another great performance by Simon Ferry, and obviously Alan McCormack has played centre half all his life. He must have done, he looked perfect in the role.
Crawley on Tuesday then.
Steve Evans, someone who Town fans don’t like very much. He saw his side thrashed 6-0 on Saturday at Morecambe, and looking to recover against Swindon.
I’m delighted that Paolo Di Canio didn’t get involved in a war of words…all that is SO tiresome and childish. If you want to talk about people, make sure you have the credentials to do so, otherwise SHUT UP. Swindon’s boss let his side do the talking on the pitch.
3-0, a tremendous result.
I spent the evening getting ready for my Late Show in Devon, keeping up to date on Twitter, and the wires service. It was nerve wracking, and a lot of pacing went on.
The win is a real season turning moment.
All of a sudden the poor start is forgotten. Swindon have three wins in a row and are within touching distance of the leaders. Crawley drop to eighth.
Tremendous to see Paolo Di Canio embracing Steve Evans after the game. Nothing more need be said except…CRAWLEY TOWN NIL, SWINDON TOWN THREE.
One more thing from Tuesday, well done to Billy Bodin on his first senior goal at Torquay. It was a belter by all accounts.
GONE FOR A…
Burton on Saturday. A new ground for most Town fans, and a chance to see if Swindon can make it four wins in a row.
Albion, one of the relative new boys in the League, but having a half decent start to the season.
I’ve been past the ground on the train, but never in it.
I don’t know about you, but the way things are going at the moment, any time in between Swindon games is a bit of a waste.
Just want to see the team get out of this league as soon as possible. Won’t be easy in Staffordshire though.
I remember many years ago after a win at Chester, daring to say the ‘P’ word…it turned out to be correct in 1985/86, I’m beginning to get the same feeling now.
Listen to my commentary and hopefully another Swindon victory on BBC Wiltshire this Saturday afternoon.
By the way if you’re on Twitter, you can follow me @swindonred.
Just remember, keep it loud, keep it proud, keep it SWINDON.
