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

Shock as Andy Scott takes a swipe

Okay so perhaps it's so much of a shock.

It will come as no surprise to many Town fans to hear Andy Scott's post-match report after Swindon's deserved win over Rotherham United yestderday.

Scott, who played 100 times for bitter rivals Oxford United, once again spent his post-match interview moaning about everything.

Andy Scott acknowledges that his team were poor but launched a scathing attack on Swindon Town.

He did it during his tenure at Brentford when a Play-Off worthy Town beat the Bees 3-2 at Griffin Park in 2009.

Rotherham United will no doubt have a very good season while Alex Revell will almost certainly prove a fine signing but yesterday was simply an example of 'you can't win them all'.

However, Scott's post-interview made it sound like Swindon produced a display conjured up from the depths of hell!

Why on earth was Conrad Logan's unfortunate collision included within Scott's argument that Town were downright evil? It was a 50/50 ball that Mehdi Kerrouche had every right to go for.

Players going down easility? Ah yes, I recall seeing Andy Scott doing the 'diving' gesture towards the referee when his player clearly caught Kerrouche's foot. That would have hurt! For some of his complaints I would suggest that he watches the game again.

I'm also not sure what the 'Paolo Di Canio Show' has anything to do with anything other than perhaps what happened at the end which seemed petty but not exactly something that is rare in football (time wasting). If Di Canio/staff did anything untoward then he/they will be duly punished... MOVE ON!

Paolo Di Canio has a camera permanently fixed on him throughout games. We see him encouraging, celebrating and on Tuesday night we saw the Leon Clarke incident... but I didn't see anything nasty during the Rotherham game and make no mistake, the moment Di Canio does anything out of the ordinary Sky Sports, BBC Sport and friends are all over it.

I suggest that Andy Scott does exactly what Paolo Di Canio should do and that's to work on set-pieces because if both teams can sort that aspect of their games then Swindon and Rotherham should enjoy a good season.

Andy Scott suggests that Town were conniving but everyone else enjoyed an edgy but ultimately good game of football.

Move on.

I read your match report. I didn't agree with a lot of it but Paolo Di Canio isn't going to win fans within the lower leagues. I cannot stress enough that my criticism isn't with Rotherham United but with Andy Scott who is prone to the occasional bitter, irrational rant when his team loses.
