You can’t buy experience…

“We tried, but you can’t buy experience” was the cry from Andrew Fitton in the pre match comment, that was reiterated in Danny Wilson’s interview after our dreadful 3-0 defeat at Leyton Orient. This was in relation to Town’s vain attempts throughout the transfer window to remedy our deficiencies in defence, and continued problems upfront, by bringing in seasoned pros.

International Recognition for Caddis

After Paul Caddis, not even an ever-present regular in the Swindon Town first XI, was an unused substitute in the Scotland squad for the friendly international versus the Faroe Islands, what does this really say about the quality and strength in depth of Scottish football? When Caddis joined us back in August I was slightly bemused, but delighted that Town, a

Town v Colchester: Officials Nearly Cost Town 3 Points

Colchester United lost 2-1 at The County Ground in a match marred by refereeing errors and serious oversights, however the quality of the football fortunately didn’t suffer as Town finally found the gear we’ve been lacking over recent weeks.

My visit to StadiumMK was a first Town away game (excluding Wembley) for some time. After lunch and taking in the sight, yes the sole sight of

Greer Walks

Why why why, would Gordon Greer want to leave Swindon to join Brighton, let alone Wilson want to sell the club captain? Greer signed last summer on a free transfer with a 2 year contract, and is only 12 months into a very successful stint at the County Ground. Gordon is set to sign a 3 year deal at Brighton following a £250,000 fee

Home Grown?

Yesterday the Football League AGM ratified rules for the 2010/2011 season. From next season clubs are required to name 10 “home-grown” players in a squad, with a maximum squad size of 25 players aged over 21. There are no to be restrictions on players under 21. To be “home-grown” players must be registered in domestic (English) football for three seasons
