    Well guys/gals as Im away at one of our 60s weekends I've not bothered getting involved in posting/ replying but reading several pages on this thread I'll just say "football manager" has lot to answer for, for Christ sake we've just seen Hartlepool pull our pants down and spanked our arses 5 days ago, today was great result Swindon getting away lightly lets just enjoy the result.

    Have to give credit to Threlkeld today, not been a fan so far but though he kept Payne very quiet, although out on the left I’m not sure is Payne’s best position. I thought we did a job on both Payne and Williams probably their best two players and allowed them to create nothing.

    Word for Canavan as well, our record with and without him speaks for itself. Can I ask for a younger, quicker, ball playing version of him in January or is that to greedy or just unrealistic at this level?

    I don't think you need better than Canavan in League Two.

    We might if we go up though!

    Complete nonsense, you've completely missed the assist from the player you're pretending to watch that closely that you notice things everyone else is missing and you think 3 paragraphs of nothingness and mentioning 2 players who didn't play today will get you out of it.

    Garbage

    Off to bed but have to say we'll done to DA for today. He picked the team up after Tuesday, made changes that worked and in my eyes did what we have been crying out for him to do - he really showed his management acumen rather than telling us about it!

    So pleased for him, the player's and the fan's who gave fantastic support. One last word on Derek, still think he a bit of a weird one ;) (but could yet grow to love him!)

    I don’t agree with the statement we parked the bus. We were quite happy to let them have possession but for all they passed it along the back four, did they actually hurt us?

    look at the xG (we ‘beat’ them 2.0 v 1.2).

    0.7 or so of theirs came from Payne’s penalty though and we comfortably had the better of them. They didn’t create much of note. Can only really remember the O’Donnell camera save from a header off top of my head.

    we took our chances and deservedly won.

    for me ‘park the bus’ means scumming a win when the other team batters you, you nick a goal on the break and then hold on for dear life in a game you didn’t deserve to win on balance.

    possession is a meaningless statistic in football these days.

    Yep.
    If VAR was in league 2 that goal wouldn't have stood.
    Poor from the officials not to spot that.

    I don't think he was offside if their player did not have permission to leave the field. It's not clear to me that he did (for treatment for example). Otherwise players would be wandering off the pitch all the time to deliberately provoke an offside. So good goal for me.

    Exactly as I have been saying all season. Possession of the ball , and it’s calculated effect,is b/s

    How can the linesman know he’s ( The defender) a foot off the pitch from 50 m away?

    I kept thinking yesterday that we were playing exactly the way that Adams had always hoped we would, defence was solid, midfield more mobile and apart from Cooks miss we finished better, as someone said earlier let's hope he doesn't overthink it next week, should be a good atmosphere now around the club...

    Funny I thought that too until I saw how they were set up and how they set about the game. It was hard to pick a man of the match afterwards.

    Who cares Theo thumped the ball into the back of their net offside or not.
    Three very good points on the road and a team confidence booster going into our home game against FGR

    Just had a read of the last 20 pages and not had any insight to the goals, formation, general play (prior to this morning) until seeing the highlights and reading the comments above.

    Well, a little bit of knowledge gained but.....

    From @banbrotam@banbrotam v @Botswana Bantam@Botswana Bantam on Gilliead, to parking the bus, to complimentary comments on Adams/to not so complimentary comments on Adams, to Lavery and Robinson and two up front, it's a genuinely great way to start a Sunday morning, with coffee and a sausage sarnie in hand.

    That read was a pure delight, entertaining and head scratching alike, so thank you fellow City fans whom contributed. Just another day, eh being a City fan!!!!

    In closing, my favourite quote...

    One sentence perfectly illustrating what football should be about.

    Have a good day all.
