Former Players: What do you do – boo or ignore?
Should former Swindon players, such as Aden Flint, get a rough ride at the County Ground, asks Ron Smith?
Aden Flint will be back at the County Ground on Saturday, playing in the colours of Bristol City. But how much do you care about former Swindon players once they have left. Do you boo every former Town player who dares to depart, or do you simple not care? Whatever you think, answer our poll and add your opinion below.
Is your anger reserved for those who claim they are leaving for better or bigger clubs or is it all about how they leave – with badge kissing and transfer requests? If Flint had gone to the Championship and not the bottom reaches of League One would Swindon fans be happy for him? Let us know.
What makes the difference? Does the size of the fee help? Or is it all about the player? After all, we’ve seen mixed receptions for Charlie Austin, but Sam Parkin is always warmly welcomed. And what would happen if someone who was once loved such as Simon Ferry, Alan McCormack or Paolo Di Canio came back to the County Ground?
Also don’t forget to add your comments below the line as we’ll be talking about this and reading out the best of the comments in TheWashbag podcast to be recorded this Sunday and available for download later that evening
