Full-Time at the County Ground and Swindon Town have been comfortably beaten 3-1 by Championship pace setters Southampton.
No big deal. Sure the performance was poor and the amount of losses are more than worrying but anyone who went in to this fixture expected a victory obviously own the rosiest set of red-tinted glasses!
However, what happened as the players walked off has stolen the headlines.
Recent signing Leon Clarke is seemingly told by Swindon fitness coach that some running is on the cards for training the following day. Clarke obviously doesn't like this news and sulks off.
Paolo Di Canio tries to diffuse the situation by attempted to usher Clarke down the tunnel so this can be discussed behind-closed-doors.
Clarke is reluctant and then eventually they disappear. However, the television camera zoom shows that a scuffle in the tunnel occurred shortly afterwards.
We don't know what happened but Di Canio has been taking all the headlines. The BBC tells the nation Swindon manager Paolo Di Canio scuffles with one of his own players after cup defeat.
I was expecting to watch footage of a mass brawl but it really was something out of nothing. This happens in football every day, although the difference being that there isn't always a camera to document it.
This is what the national press has wanted from the start. Well, they got it so I hope there happy.
There are clearly problems behind-the-scenes at Swindon Town... and what does the future hold for Leon Clarke who's only been in Wiltshire a bloomin' fortnight. We shall see.
It must feel great to be an Oxford United fan right now.
