    I'm thinking it's another defeat on the road as City tumble further down the league.

    Williams and Payne to control the game for them. Our only hope is their strikers misfiring as much as ours do when in control of games.

    Same team, same tactics, another defeat, Adams can't be blamed at all.

    Controversial, but if I was Adams, I'd go 442 for this one. He's said we might have to play differently away from home, so why not play 2 up top instead of leaving Cook isolated again?

    That's what I picked when trying to pick Saturdays team. I'd even be tempted to put Sutton wide right and move Cooke to a central midfield role even though it would take out part of his game.

    Could be a hide behind your seat or listen with earplugs in this one.

    Or go out for the day and do something enjoyable then catch up with the result later once you've got home.

    It seems hard to justify wasting a good chunk of Saturday at the minute.

    He will pick Gilliard and Evans as he usually does even though they bring nothing to the team, It seems he cannot tell the difference between players who run around a lot but contribute nothing and players who will actually achieve on the pitch,
    Forcast? Same team and same result a comfortable win for Swindon

    I was really pissed off Tuesday night, not only after watching the 'performance' against Hartlepool, but also that I'd just ordered tickets for Swindon earlier that day.

    However I'm already now looking forward to tomorrow. Its like an addiction isn't it?...lucky for Sparks and City, otherwise we wouldn't keep doing this year after year!

    It's quite odd that Adams is the only manager in the club's modern day history where a large proportion of the fans are not demanding 442 is played whenever we don't win a game.

    It's a tough listen these days, and then we've got Andy Kiwomya to contend with. When we last won (can't even remember who it was), I understand he said the result would "reverberate around the world". Then we'll have Derek coming on saying how we dominated a game we lost 3-1. I think I'll go for a walk in the rain.

    We just played 442 on Tuesday and it was abysmal

    Why?, Swindon have a lousy home record and will be nervous. Go for it.

    I’d be thinking Swindon will be saying we play Bradford city Saturday do what Hartlepool did and we will be fine it’s just what we do with teams in poor form we help them get back on track .

    Is Swindon’s lousy home record as lousy as Hartlepool’s away record was before Tuesday night?

    A draw won't be a huge surprise, to be honest.

    We play very, very well at times and should have buried Rochdale in our last home game. However, we have a habit of switching off at times, losing composure and getting sloppy, allowing teams to get back at us. If we could get that out of our system then our home form will improve dramatically. It's not implausible that will happen on Saturday. Home performances have been improving and hopefully, we learned something from the Rochdale game.

    We're going to absolutely hammer somebody before long. Whether or not that happens on Saturday remains to be seen.
