Getting my tickets for Swindon tomorrow.
If we get a good result on Saturday how many  travelling mariners do people think we will take. I know it's a fair trek but I'd like to think 600 plus?

Gonna have to miss it cos I’ll be in Clee  


Through the door there came familiar laughter,
I saw your face and heard you call my name.
Oh my friend we're older but no wiser,
For in our hearts the dreams are still the same.

Me and her are going from a boozy weekend in London, any pub recommendations for Swindon? I’ve been before but not to drink.

Swindon looked very, very good when they beat us at BP. Perhaps we made them look good, I don’t know, but either way they’re top of the league.

It’ll be a good barometer of how far we’ve come.


A smooth sea never made a skillful mariner.

Sorry to miss this one, Swindon is usually a good away day and meet up with mates.
Germany calling and got tickets for the city derby, Hamburg v the crusty tramps.
Nur der HSV, FCKSTP and all that.

BUT.. as Pete would say

A full house of nearly 60k with an atmosphere to match, surrounding area full of pop up bars, the ground selling gorgeous food of every description, supping beer in your seat, smiles from police and stewards... well... it's ace but still not as good as a last minute equaliser in West Yorkshire.

Nur der Grimsby Town.

Swindons divided into two parts (old town and new town). A few boozers across the road from the train station if travelling by train. Lovely pub called the tuppeney (https://thetuppenny.com) in the old town : great range of ales (craft, cask etc) and food is nice too. Short taxi ride to the ground if you don't fancy trying your luck on the magic roundabout!



“To put it in gentleman’s terms if you’ve been out for a night and you’re looking for a young lady and you pull one, some weeks they’re good looking and some weeks they’re not the best. Our performance today would have been not the best looking bird but at least we got her in the taxi. She weren’t the best looking lady we ended up taking home but she was very pleasant and very nice, so thanks very much, let’s have a coffee”

Should've all so mentioned the hop inn (https://www.hopinnswindon.co.uk) that's just across the road from the tuppeney. Nice small boozer selling a similar type of beers.

The merlin and miller and carter are closest (that I can think of) to the ground with the merlin being a home supporters pub (I think)

Sankt Pauli ist braune Scheiße. 😁
Seriously though a few pre match beers in Sternchanze then lunch down Landungsbrüken, what's not to like.
Beautiful city.
