    We have gone from an attacking fluent fast passing team to a team with no pace no threat and a midfield who look clueless going forward.
    The early part of the deason we creared chances for fun and played free flowing football we now cant creat chances or beat a man

    One shot on target in the 92nd minute is a joke. Mid table if we are lucky

    We miss Kent? we missed him before he even played here... need someone who can drag 3 or 4 players out of position and deliver killer passes.... but not while we play in this league

    3 goals in the last 6 matches. Talk is though of needing 6 wins out of the 9 games left.

    Something needs to change.

    we dont attack as a team thats the problem. we have become almost to cautious in our attacking play. for me we should be playing at least 5 or 10 yards higher up the pitch to get amongst the play but we seem happy to let the opposition midfield play in front of us and invariable hurt us as a result.

    I Vicky recall that when we played Rochdale Clive Eakin was talking about the fact that Rochdale had nothing to play for and were not going to be challenging at the top, or be involved in any dogfight at the bottom.

    They are now just 2 points behind us.

    Our lack of goal prowess has hurt us just as much as our defensive frailties, if not more!

    Or, a great point won in our pursuit to finish 12th or 14th.

    Why all the depressing comments we are still in with a chance few more games to go... Fair enough we need to win at home but c'mon this is the most exciting end to a season we have had for a long time at the right end of the table.....PUSB

    We looked more threatening with Henderson on.

    I missed yesterday but if it was anything like recent weeks the problem is the midfield creates nothing and I don't think you can play fleck and Vincelot together at home and I would leave fleck out ever time he is a half a game player at best and I will be glad when he is gone.

    Henderson really changed the dynamics of the game. Put him self about a lot and was horrible to defenders, gave them problems till the end. Won us a few corners and kept the pressure on there goal. Gave the crowd belief we could actually win. If only Murphy had of played him in.....

    Trouble is Bugsy, deep down we all know how this will end. That's why there's negativity. We always do it.

    Our forward play has been a concern to me since Xmas. It is just not good enough, not blaming individual players but the management. We had one decent shot yesterday, one at Blackpool which went in, I don't remember one v Rochdale and too many other games are similar yet the player brought in to boost the attack, Darius Henderson, has been consistently over looked but came on yesterday and caused all sorts of problems for the Swindon defence.

    I hate to spoil this text with the "Leicester" word and although a different level they get
    shots in from all areas of the team and look where that's helped put them.

    SHOTS win football matches.

    Have to agree totally with that, disappointed lately with Vincelot too both give the ball away too much and in dangerous areas
