2010 STFC Review: October

After vastly improved performances in September, Town were brought back down to earth with defeat at League One new boys Dagenham & Redbridge. An early Dossevi goal couldn’t inspire Town to build on their advantage, falling to a 2-1 loss in the first ever League match between the two sides. The result was the biggest win the the history of

2010 STFC Review: March

March couldn’t have got off to a worse start. After 13 league games unbeaten, Bristol Rovers did the double over Town with a emphatic 4-0 victory at The County Ground, to add to their 3-0 victory back in December.

Now then…a few weeks ago after our defeats to both Bristol Rovers and MK Dons, I had written-off any chance of Swindon fighting for

Rampant Rovers

Yesterday we were promised the bragging rights to banish the memory of the 3-0 defeat against Bristol Rovers at the Memorial earlier this season.  However, our 4-0 home defeat shows you can take nothing for granted and, when Swindon lose this season they surely know how to do it in style. To say Swindon played poorly would be very disrespectful to

Curse of the Manager of the Month?

With Danny Wilson today being nominated for the January League One Manager of the Month, it is often said that winning this award often sees the manager loosing the next match and / or suffering a dip in team form. Is the suspected curse active this season? Phil Parkinson (Charlton Athletic) won the August award.  Charlton went unbeaten in September
