  1. Good luck with Luke. You will get at least some entertaining quotes. "3 draws = a win" comes to mind. Our old Chairman gave him a 5 year deal! Not good financially for STFC when the inevitable quickly happened.
  2. Just think of those of us living in the Tory heartlands. Have never had a Labour M.P. in my lifetime. Wiltshire is disintegrating and its county town arguably the worst in the country. 5 sites proposed for development along southern boundary and government wants to ease plannig regulation. Crisis? What crisis? Take your pick Boris.
  3. Dave Dee went to secondary school in Trowbridge and joined local constabulary. He apparently attended fatal accident of Eddie Cochran at Chippenham. Legend has it he removed Eddie's guitar from the scene: procedural and not for personal gain I believe.
  4. I am with Super_Ram on this and used to listen to Radio Luxembourg as there was nothing else. Had to make my own influences really and grew into Del Shannon and Dion and the Belmonts (Doo *** generally). 1960s Beat Boom resonated with those of us born in lates 40s and I took Rolling Stones, Pretty Things, Kinks, Animals and Them path. Enjoyed Punk and Goth in late 70s early 80s. Has anyone ever listened to Fields of the Nephilim? Now listen to Half Man Half Biscuit and have refound Canned Heat. Mik Artistik is playing in nearby Frome next month unless lockdown is extended in the southern Conservative heartlands. Hope you are all well at present. I confess that interest in football is at a low ebb and I just cannot bear to watch on IFollow. We again have ownership issues, new and very injury prone squad and are managerless (until tomorrow when John Sheridan is believed to be taking over). Best wishes to all, Mickey
  5. I hope you have all returned home safely and feel disappointed for you. As Danny has said it may not be an easy return. You were so reliant on Macclesfield result that we did not actually relegate you … no consolation I know. I wish you had worn black and white kit so we could have watched the real Magpies.
  6. Luke Woolfenden is our own goal specialist at present but he should not be playing because he is a loan player who will not be here next season. If you stay up I will be tempted to go to Meadow Lane next year.
  7. Our no. 31 Matt Taylor is retiring after tomorrow's match. Could I ask Notts. fans to give him a cheer if he comes on as a sub. (or off if he starts). You have so many going that it would be a magical experience. I sincerely hope that tomorrow's result does not relegate you and, reading local press forum, am certain that very many of us feel the same way. May you all have a very safe journey and remember we are inconsistent apart from playing badly at home. Very best wishes, Mickey
  8. We have!! This will be biggest away support this season and largest gate is expected. Quite probable though that home support will dip as a result of yet another dire season. Will not be surprised if it seems like a home match for you.
  9. It seems you have sold 2000 tickets and a further 450 available. Many will be at uncovered end of ground but weather forecast is for a dry day. Our biggest gate of season is expected but it is possible that many home supporters just will not bother. Last home match saw half time exodus including a few sitting in front of us who miss few matches and never leave until the final whistle. This is the result of 3 years of home mediocrity. I will let you know if anything happens this end to increase my optimism. Good luck and best wishes.
  10. On your first point I really do not know how we will line up on Saturday since our manager thinks the bulk of squad are already on holiday and cannot play to plan in any case. I do not think he will deliberately choose a "weakened" squad but has intimated that the bench will be populated by youth players. That said the youth team have a fixture on Saturday morning and a win would see them win their league … so who knows. I would prefer a Swindon win because we would at least finish the season on a high(?) but would be pleased if you win and survive There is nothing but pride for us to play for. Worst case scenario is you hammer us, which is more likely than you may think, but the Macc. Lads get the point needed to stay up. I wish you all a safe trip on Saturday and enjoy the match. I hope that your team plays well so that you know that they did their best on the day.
  11. I will be there because I have a season ticket. It seems that you will be bringing very large support and herein lies your problem. We are useless at home but half decent away. Given Swindon supporters have had enough and really could not care less it may well feel like an away match. You could easily win by 4 (not enough I know) especially if you hit us on the break. All out attack by Notts. will allow us to play counter attacking football which we generally do well away from home. Trouble is, I guess, that this is all irrelevant if the Macc. Lads do not lose. This is our lowest final league position in more than 30 years. Cannot wait for season to end. Best wishes to all.
  12. We are imploding big time. Check thisisstfc website. Manager aiming to have 4 youth team players on bench and thinks majority of squad could not care less. Beating us is not your problem.
  13. Our home form is so useless that a Notts win on final day cannot be ruled out.
