Swindon 1, Colchester 3
County Ground, Swindon
A Swindon Town side who looked hardly bothered slipped to a 3-1 defeat this afternoon at the County Ground.
Town's first half was absolutely pathetic and were lucky only to be losing 2-0 at half time. We are normally quite positive but the only thing we are positive about today, is the fact we didn't lose by 3 or 4 goals.
To keep this as short and as painless as possible, Colchester bossed us the whole game, our defence was non-existant and the U's walk away with 3 easy points and will be wishing they can play us every week.
We don't blame boss Maurice Malpas though, we blame the players who talk a good game but can't perform. Malpas needs to let a fan into the dressing room and tell the players exactly what they think.
Conceeding 5 goals in 2 games is not acceptable and performances like that WILL see us relegated.
Our suggestion to the players is, get your fingers out and put on a good performance aganst MK Dons or you will be playing in League 2 next season.
JP McGovern told the Swindon Advertiser in the week he doesn't like the stick he gets and the fans need to back the team. How can we back that???
Sadly the players still get paid anyway so a loss isn't all that much of a problem really for the players. The players are paid to play football, sadly I didn't see any today.
It's time to stand up and be counted. If you don't want to fight and wear the red shirt then please leave now. We know the team is better than that.
Roll on MK Dons.
