Swindon memories revived
The magic of the cup. Our first appearance in the 1st round of the League Cup
for 10 years will be at Swindon's County Ground on either Tuesday August 14th or 15th.
I have great memories of Swindon and it's Magic Roundabout
and their open away seating. I don't think I have ever been as soaked at a football match as I was there in April 1998. Steve Jones scoring with 10 minutes to go at our end was the culmination of a fun if wet day out.
Of course our record in this competition is on a par with Paris Hilton's driving, so I can't get overly excited as the league, to use a well-oiled expression, is what we should be concentrating on.
The Carling Cup draw is a nice little appetizer for tomorrow's fixture list, which is slated as being announced around 10am GMT.
