So Long, Farewell?

With the transfer deadline coming up, who do you think will leave Swindon Town?

Below who is most likely to be shown the exit door at the County Ground.

Michael Timlin (CONFIRMED) - Will sign 18 month contract with Southend United after they agreed to match his Swindon wages. Had a successful loan spell at Roots Hall during a period where Southend were undefeated in 17 games.
Leon Clarke (CONFIRMED JANUARY 2012) - Striker wanted by Huddersfield Town, AFC Bournemouth and Chesterfield. Scored 9 goals for Chesterfield in loan spell with League One club earlier this season. No future at STFC following high profile fall out with Paolo Di Canio.
Mattia Lanzano - Young goalkeeper looked incredibly nervous for Town, Featured in 6 games for Town this season, hasn`t impressed. Apparently is unsettled at Swindon and will leave as soon as he finds a club closer to home.
Alberto Comazzi- featured in 5 games for Town since his arrival from Verona, Hasn`t impressed and his disciplinary record is shocking, 3 yellows and 1 red card to his name already. Will probably leave by mutual consent.
Jordan Pavett - The winner of the inaugural Samsung win a pro contract competition, hasn`t got anywhere near the first team, contract expires in January, is a certainty to leave the County Ground.
Jake Jervis (CONFIRMED JANUARY 2012) - On loan from Birmingham has scored 3 goals in 12 appearances for Town since arriving at the County Ground, Has been rumoured to be in Birmingham manager Chris Houghton`s first team plans when his loan period expires in January.

Not too much controversry in above list. The only one we will miss is Ridehalgh, who's prescence has rather neatly coincided with our finding some real winning form. A few people claiming that his return to Hudds is just so that we can make a permanent deal stick in window, but I doubt that - he is better than League 2 and if he gets a sniff of first team football at the GayFarm he'd be a fool not to grab it with both hands. As for Jervis, if there is a rumour that Houghton has plans for him in his first team, I can only suggest that Houghton hasnt been watching the last three or four games. Jakey boy has looked unfit, uninterested, unmotivated, and unlikely to worry some poor league 2 defences. Such a shame after the impact he made at the start. It was almost embarrassing how much he wanted to be taken off at Torquay, the bugger was sitting in the dugout before the 4th official had even raised the number on his board. Comazzi will forever go down in Di Canios history of management as a "bloody huge mistake" - everyone is allowed one or two of these in a management career, and the least said about Alberto the better. Lanzano I liked when he first got his chance, but as you so rightly said looked so nervous it took away all the talent he obviously has. I reckon if he finds a club close enough to allow his Mama to do his washing and cook his meals, he will do well. Good luck to him. now the real big test for PDC - can he persuade Pallis to let us keep Foderingham, and can he persuade Foderingham that being number one at Swindon is better than being number 2/3 behind the excellent Speroni at Pallis? I am a bit of a pessimist on this one, according to Pallis sites, Speroni is out of contract at the end of the season and likely to leave, with the form Foderingham has shown with us he must be in with a huge shout of starting next season at Pallis, and that chance would surely (in his best interests) be served by being "johnny on the spot" at Selhurst rather than playing Div 4 football at Swindon.... depressing thought but I think he will go... And what of Matt Ritchie? SOmeone else who performed at Torquay like he had other things on his mind. Is the Ballmuff statement pulling out of the deal just a smokescreen? Or are they playing "chase me chase me" and setting a trap for our board to walk into? Very disappointed with the very public way Ritchie argued incessantly with Caddis just before Torquay scored, body language showed he was not exactly showing his captain any respect......... Will he stay in the window???
