    I might have got my wires crossed and come up in my head with a fee that we instead shelled out for Stockley. Even so, my point re: doubting him being on "just" £700 p/w stands.

    Has this been looked at before?

    Would be helpful for the site to make citations - I can't really dispute any of the figures as I don't have a scooby what our players are on, my one quibble would be I can't see Bowman being on just £700 per week especially given the amount we reportedly signed him for and the logic that...

    I thought it was my computer playing up when I missed the first 20 minutes or so of the Swindon match, then again when I finally got into the Southend match after about 35 minutes - so was somewhat gratified (in a selfish way) to see others had the same problem. I wonder if it's an issue their...

    And our old mate Owen Gaul.

    Don't get me wrong, as I've stated on here I'm firmly still in the "Yay" camp re: the BBC, despite misgivings in certain areas. I looked at tonight's guide on the BBC's two main entertainment channels and found nothing to stir the blood, BBC1 especially displaying a worrying lack of variety in...

    And now Sweeny (sic) is in the firing line.

    Maybe Martin was upset that people on the Internet kept spelling his first name incorrectly.

    I'm sure it is if you like that sort of thing. As it is the sum total of my BBC main channels viewing this week will remain 7:30-9:00 on Monday nights on BBC2.

    I've just about got over that Grimsby result, the cops having investigated and finding that a robbery took place at the Park that afternoon...yes, Hartridge did play at LB that day.

    This, plus McArdle is clearly the first choice right-sided CB and we're now playing (in the league anyway) with a back four so he's the odd one out. Should we revert to a three at the back formation I'm sure he'd get the nod (ahead of Dean, whose competition appears to be mainly Parkes and...

    Swindon Town v Exeter City EFL Trophy. Match Day Thread

    Yes, one thing I've been critical of under Taylor is that at corners in particular we seemed to pose no threat before this season - it got to the stage where we'd win a corner and I wouldn't even get excited. This season (so far) we're a lot more threatening, despite still not being a...

    Swindon Town v Exeter City EFL Trophy. Match Day Thread

    Indeed, the commentators last night were saying the same, that while Swindon could argue their line-up was much changed, ours was even more so.

    I think the point is more that they often seek to change stuff that works in order to attract a younger audience that just isn't there. I accept though that there *is* stuff for fogeys of indeterminate age, but I worry about the variety on offer. For example, I have just opened up the guide on...

    Swindon Town v Exeter City EFL Trophy. Match Day Thread

    Not sure if those criticising Maxted remember the two fantastic saves he made in fairly quick succession late in the first half. Although overall Ward does seem to be in the ascendancy right now, and Maxted should have done better with the one he palmed out to their striker. Anyway, I endured...

    As I've said before, the BBC news bias is more a case of semantics and what/how they report. Note how the announcement of President Trump catching Covid was treated almost with glee and a long piece about how he downplayed it (at least they didn't repeat the lie about him telling people to drink...

    RIP Bob Wilson

    Just seen the news via FB - very sad news, having met and spoken to him a few times he was a top bloke. Obviously I'm too young to have seen him play but by all accounts was a top keeper too.

    Is BBC Studios funded by the licence fee? Genuine question, as I'm not sure (I know it's a for-profit operation). If it's entirely privately funded, then your point becomes moot. I'd be open to the idea of the BBC functioning as a subscription service as a replacement for the fee (aka the TV...

    Politics Today

    That's a tad revisionist to suggest "up until the last moment" - Boris had become increasingly Euro-sceptic for a few years prior to the referendum (as documented by his party conference speech, for example), with his decision made up on which side to support when Cameron did his Chamberlain...

    Too many average midfielders.

    I think our results (and performances) in the last few matches of last season showed that we were somewhat fortunate the season ended when it did, as I reckon we'd have finished outside the playoff places - the season to me had a lot of the hallmarks of Alex Inglethorpe's last season with us...
