Hello all Mariners,
I am glad to see Ian Holloway is steering you up the table, and look forward to what should be a very entertaining game on Saturday. I was just looking to see how you are all feeling ahead of the game.

Personally felt we didn’t see the best of you in our meeting back in December and I anticipate more of a fight from your lot this time around.

Ian.

To be honest, looking forward to this game. Appears both teams want to play "football" the right so expecting an entertaining game.
Can't see you ripping us a new ar$ehole like you did at BP...

Hello all Mariners,

Any Swindon fan coming to BP that day would have seen a club in almost terminal decline after nearly two decades of failure. On and off the pitch it was dire. Previous manager Jolley* had lost the plot, and was on the way to being sacked, and the players were square pegs in round holes and had a very defensive mindset. We were lucky if we ever got into the opposition box.

The team and the town has been energised by Holloway's arrival; he has made some astute signings and got our existing players believing in his way of playing the game and playing more to their potential. As a result we are much more attack minded, scoring more goals and look a decent team going forward.

You will rightly be firm favourites, but we should put up a much better show this time around. You will know we won at Colchester recently with three goals, one of which was a team goal involving 10 players from our box to theirs, and a wonder individual goal.

We are in much better shape, but as always may the best team win.

* Sorry - Jolley had already been sacked by then but his legacy lived on!

He'd gone by then hadn't he.

Dear Mariner,
Yes, you were in turmoil at the time so it’s understandable. I saw the goals against Colchester and was very impressed. My son has recently purchased the special Charles Vernam player on FIFA (I must admit I have no clue what it is) and have seen he’s in good form. Colchester have swept us aside three times this season (9-1 on aggregate) so I was very impressed with the win.

Of course he had - thanks. I will amend it!

There’s a special Charles Vernam player on FIFA? We really are finally on the map!


“He’s six foot something, fit as a flea, good looking – he’s got to have something wrong with him. Hopefully he’s hung like a hamster – That would make us all feel better. Having said that, me missus has got a pet hamster at home, and his member’s massive.”

Colchester have done the double over Swindon already this season winning 3-0 at Swindon and 3-1 at home, they also beat them 3-0 in the EFL Cup, so we're nailed on for a win obviously.

We all know that's how football works don't we.

I think both teams will be happy with a draw,

It wont be a boring 0-0 draw  but an entertaining 1-1 or 2-2.

Personally think we’d be a little annoyed with a draw due to our home form - not lost since September in the league at home - but a draw wouldn’t surprise me with the form you are in. Holloway looks to have completely turned it around.
