Rumour has it that Mr Hoyle has torn up his "blueprint" for Town`s future, and is preparing to leave, after seeing town`s first season in the championship turn to 3£$%, after a promising start, with the prospect of league 1 beckoning, after making cheap, incorrect decisions in a tough league, when reasonable financial decisions re team strengthening needed mid season weren`t taken, when the team and supporters cried out for help. Muddling through on a wing and a prayer doesn`t work! Latest debacle at Forest tonight.

I agree, dean hoyles plan to bring players on and sell them is ridiculous, no team can do that and suceed on the pitch, even man united don't bring enough players through to do that. I agree that a club has to be run on a business footing but that business isn't a cattle market. we need a miracle

4-1 at half time. Will it be 8-1 at full time? Mr Hoyle, what happened to you "dipping in to the loan market" as quoted on by you to The paper. 3 of you scouring availability supposedly as far back as before the Leicester cup tie replay. SHAME ON YOU. Our defence are absolutely useless and I at the age of 53 could probably do just as well. (At least I couldn't be much worse). Never mind about stupid talk about polyfiller instead of wallpaper. Try a total refurbishment. As quoted at the Canalside questions an answers night.

have posted several times that the next swindon manager has been to several games in the past few months. the new owners were not willing to work with di canio and would not allow deal to go ahead until di canio left. the new owners did not want to be the ones to dismiss di canio hence the deal wouldn't go through until patey had removed di canio. the takeover will be completed by the end of the week when the new swindon manager will be announced. the new swindon manager will be STEVE COTTERILL who is currently coaching qpr on a short term basis until the swindon situation was sorted.
