    And I dont back this negative team to go up via the playoffs

    So sorry but it's a NO from me

    We haven’t been out of the play offs positions all season most of it with a massive injury list. Up by the play offs

    It’s a no from me. We don’t look like a team that would be promoted.

    Too much chopping and changing and indifferent performances to get promoted unfortunately. If we can miraculously change that who knows

    Before the season I would've said definitely by autos, as did every bookie...

    Now? 11-15th at best

    I would feel confident if Bowyer was keen on adding a def midfielder/ballwinner and urge the team to create more chances than the usual 1 or 2 shots on goal in 45 minutes but he seems happy to do nothing in this transfer window.
    Now there is a surprise, a Jan transfer window with little happening.
    Too many injury prone players here (and we have a fitness coach?).

    Might make the playoffs but this team doesn't have the knowhow to get the best out of Doyle/Vaughan/Donaldson.

    I think we mostly agree the league is shit. Regardless of our inability to create sufficient chances in most games, we’re still well placed to go up automatically. Good away followings at the next couple of games (against poor teams) with a midweek home game in between, 9 points are achievable. I’ve voted yes, we might dick somebody 4 nil soon...I know it’s Friday night but no beer has been consumed, somehow, I genuinely believe we’ll go up.

    The league is so bad but we have a shocking manager.

    Let's take the comments from Wellens he Swindon manager about tomorrow's game:

    Wellens said: “We lift the fans by winning. Play well and win – it’s simple, isn’t it?

    “As long as our supporters come along and see that our players are giving everything they can, we’re trying our best to entertain and get results, I think our supporters will be happy.

    Bowyer our manager on Manfield."They've some players that can hurt you blah blah blah"


    Bowyer's mindset is all wrong and he's wrong for the club. Swindon are not a good side but they have a manager that gets it.

    One manager wants to try to win every game the other is scared of losing!

    We will go up if we sack Bowyer and quickly.

    While I don't think the division is rubbish, I think we have the squad to get this done - particularly given how adept we've looked at shutting other teams down.

    I'll give Bowyer some credit, especially for turning us round, but it's at this moment that we need more for multiple reasons:

    We need to be attracting season ticket buys for next year, we can't tolerate the fans hating the football on offer, and we're legitimately in danger of losing our season-long play off spot - if we continue our form, we'll lose out, end of.

    Bowyer's opposition fearing statements aren't helping on any fronts, especially when the team look devoid of confidence. Surely Gary has to see that it's time he started backing the lads on and off the pitch, and started to unpick a lot of the work he's put in this season.

    How will that work then, because Bowyer is here for the season at least

    Not a chance with the current style of play. Not promotion and not strong ST sales. Without either and with Rupp in charge the future is bleak!

    Why is he?

    Don't managers ever get sacked during a season?

    FFS we are not doing well!

    How is 3 points from 12 doing well!

    Stop winding people up.. no need!

    If we we doing well @king karl@king karl wouldn't of started the thread. We haven't really been in the top 3 all season and fans are not happy with the playing style at all.

    We would be bottom of the league and you would say we are doing well!

    We are two points of automatic promotion and the best home record one loss in eleven whether you like it or not we are doing well
