Off to the Theatre Of Dreams ( a.k.a. The County Ground ) this afternoon to see the League Two fixture between Swindon and Barnet – a loss at Burton last week left Town fans hoping the three points would be in evidence this afternoon to lift us up the table .
After the first ten minutes it didn’t look good – Barnet put together some decent attacks and looked dangerous . Then , against the run of play we scored and from then onwards it was one way traffic with Swindon coming away with an incredibly easy 4-0 win .
So , a good afternoon – scored four goals , kept a clean sheet , kept to the diet and avoided the burger van and remembered to take my camera in order to post a picture on today’s blog post!
Up The Town
Off to the Utility Warehouse MAD ( Massive Action Day ) Conference at the Centaur Centre , Cheltenham Racecourse today with the Utility Warehouse Swindon crew – a packed house but slightly less busy than my last visit to Cheltenham in March for Gold Cup day !.
A really good day – some great motivational speakers plus interesting feedback from the Telecom Plus management team regarding the performance of the company – increased revenues and customer numbers during the worst recession for years isn’t bad going is it ?
As a shareholder , distributor and customer I am of course , hopelessly biased but the facts speak for themselves – this is a well run company with a good management team that actually looks after it’s customers and distributors .
One snippet that peaked my interest – Utility Warehouse now providing feed -in tariff for households with solar power/photovoltaic cells which is the best rate available .
First job for Monday morning – a quick trip around North Swindon searching for houses with solar panels , who wouldn’t want the best feed-in tariff ?
Off to the Emergency Services Show at Hullavington today with the Utility Warehouse Swindon crew to do a Win A Mini Free Prize draw event .
A great day , well organised show , lots of visitors to the stand , location great – Pizza van on one side of the stand and a coffee vendor a few stands away to the other side , plus a visit from a superhero – what more could you want from a day out ?

After a difficult start to the League Two season , i.e. more losses than wins and an eventful mid week Carling Cup game Swindon Town fans were a little apprehensive about today’s home fixture against top of the table Rotherham .
An early kick off of 1215 to accommodate the Sky TV schedule ( as well as losing half the car park to the Arqiva outside broadcast units) meant a strange atmosphere pre match where it just didn’t feel quite right to play at this time on a Saturday .
However , it turned out to be a great game – Swindon played well , went 1-0 down and recovered , 2-1 down and recovered and eventually won 3-2 with a second half substitute Alan Connell scoring the equaliser and winner . We also saw a player from each side sent off , plenty of bookings and a referee who “knew he was on the telly” so to speak !!
So the pre match anthem of La Donna E Mobile ( the lady is fickle ) also applies to certain Town supporters who now recognise that the manager is a tactical genius rather than an Italian chancer.
Up The Town !
Rockin' Robin And The Rockettes !
