Optimism

Recommended Posts

Best wishes to all PON members.

I just want to wish you well for the coming season. It seems, from my perspective, that you are shaping up well and can look forward to a promising year.

There is always the dream that this could be a record breaking season for our team but for most of us these hopes will be dashed on Saturday evening.

Things at Swindon Town do not look good. Our squad is depleted, first choice centre back out injured for weeks, sole experienced striker rested due to fatigue during friendlies and no sign of additions on the horizon. We are a shadow of the side that doubled you two years back.

Good luck on Saturday.

@medievalmickey Good luck too. Recalling times long ago, but only seems like yesterday, Wise and Poyet's side played excellent football. Nicky Ajose was for a time linked with Notts, but we probably couldn't afford him, prior to you signing him. I expect you will miss his goals. We got Idle instead, enough said and we paid 100k +

Good luck! Its a shame to hear you're going down hill, the year we went down i was certain you would go up with Mark Cooper! You were the best team to come to meadow lane that year, its just a shame that you couldn't kick on, i hope things improve for you and you can have a good season!

Yes his goals and poachers instinct will be missed. Jon Obika   is good but will never be fit for a full season.

Wise and Poyet, Hoddle and Ardiles: now we have "the best coach in England" on a five year contract.

@medievalmickey look on the bright side buddy, there's always a rainbow around the corner.

Walsall fans aren't as optimistic themselves, yet I think you will be both fine. Hopefully some new squad additions come for you guys. That said, you should raise to the challenge - from what I know you have some promising youngsters and this could be the making for Swindon. Perhaps you won't be fighting at the top end but you shouldn't really struggle - cheers for the kind message.

Yet we are used to ups and downs, once revealed as the most stressful club support. :P

Good luck, I hope to see you drop by over the upcoming seasons bud - I know its difficult now we aren't playing each other, yet perhaps next year we will be?

you never know how anything will go until you are a few games into the season, so goodluck with your opening 7 games and lets hope optimism is successful for both clubs.
