'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Danny Wilson Begins Confidence Search

It was Winston Churchill who once said that 'courage is the first of human qualities because it is the quality which guarantees all others', well it's safe to say that new Swindon boss Danny Wilson will be attempting to ignite some courage in order to rediscover the long lost confidence to save the 2008/09 season from being a total disaster for the Town.

It's F.A. Cup weekend but having been dumped out of the competition in November to the Blue Square Premier's Histon, Swindon now have a weekend off.

For the the fans it's a case of wondering what to do to fill the void. However, for Wilson and co it's an opportunity to working on getting the rest of the season correct from the start.

Confidence is the key factor that Wilson has indicated that could save this season, the new manager told the official Swindon Town website that 'they will try things that they wouldn't possibly try without that confidence and it is my job, and the staff's job, to give them that belief and confidence that they need. That's what we will try and do.'

Nobody is expecting miracles but survival is absolutely imperitive, some have even suggested a dramatic move up the table which would obviously be most welcome, however sensibly Wilson remained coy on the subject by stating that he is 'a realist, but to some extent we have to wait and see. It is wrong to come out and make big predictions because I don't want people to be disappointed. We will take things one game at a time.'

Time will tell.

Listening to DW, Sounds a confident bloke. Seemed to believe what he thought where as MM was a bit apprehensive!

His track record tells a story so he must know how to motivate players. Changing playing styles (Sturrock crossing, Malpas attractive, Byrne Whatever to get a result) doesn't really help matters either so as AF says, we need stability

I'm still suprised at the amount of dislike many of the Bristol City fans have for him - not all, but you know what I mean. His BCFC stats are really good and it's quite remarkable how he failed to take them up with them. Ho-Hum. I was at Hartlepool 3-3 Swindon and his Hartlepool team kept plugging away even at 3-0 down. Darn Joel Porter. Nellup.

I was in Newquay for the Hartlepool match with family and thought ah 3-0 up easy. then felt sick after i saw 3-3 was just waiting for 4-3 Hartlepool. Atleast if we go down 3-0 we are still in with a shout, A Danny Wilson specialty!
