I don't see why they would. We've played well in the main, defended really well Rochdale aside and are amongst the top chance creators in the league. Just haven't got the rub of the green a couple of times. I think most teams in this League will be more mindful of us than we are of them

 

More mindful of us? Don't be silly.

Everyone loves a 'homer' but we need to be sensible. We are not a great team, as things stand, and we could yet again find ourselves fighting for our lives.

I think your the one being silly. There has been nothing to suggest we will be down the bottom end of the table come the end of the season. 
 

I love how you have written us off as a great team already, what’s it been 6 games? These are a side with financial problems, lost their best players and scraped the barrel for signings. They’ve started well but will probably fade. We should be going there looking to win and they will be more worried of us, then we will of them imo.

Good post that's the worry I have seen it for years sloppy defending not willing put there self in front of a shot and goals going in what at play with your mates level would be regarded as poor .

What I've seen in highlights and going games going forwards should Wilson not have at least 4 goals to his name Worrall 3 etc some of our play is most enterprising I'm enjoying seeing us  going forwards theres a lot be excited about I think and that can only reap the rewards eventually .

Exactly the points I'm trying to make.

 

We might yet turn out well.....but let's not get above ourselves.....yet.

Is it a case that Swindon bought a lot better than us in a much shorter window or is it a case of a very good start by Swindon which will fade?

I think the financial troubles may galvanize their team like it did in our promotion season, but they will probably run out of steam due to a lack of squad depth.

Looks like 4-4-2

My first thought was 3-5-2 

Cass, Smith, Jones

Worrall, Garrity, Pett, Conlon, Benning

Rodney, Proctor

but I guess it could just as easily be 4-4-2 or 4-3-3 depending on who plays where...

Really hope it's 443. Gives us a definite advantage

By the same token, don't write the team off after 6 games

Did you? I don't think I did.

 

Don't count your chickens and don't get carried away with hyperbole like other teams will be more concerned with us because that is just silly talk.
