Brett Pitman averaged a goal per game against Rochdale in his time at Bournemouth and Portsmouth. Whilst he didn't score against us for Swindon last season, he was playing for a team as bad as ourselves. If given decent service, he'll probably score for Brovers against us, if nobody else!

For someone who was on a large wage Pitman's attitude was shocking last year and this pre-season and I think its best for player and us that he left.

He will get goals for Rovers in league 2 for sure this season.

He didn't get paid did he? Fair enough I say.

For 2 weeks. That’s all. Other players in the same position turned up and trained and played friendlies. Not Grounds or Pitman.

Is Pitman a Norman Stanley Barton signing or one of Timmy Mallets?

And they've both now left for better clubs so you have to say it was a good call

Swindon/B Rovers fans I think the phrase here is ‘agree to disagree’.

Don’t know what we are arguing about, tbh.

For some reason they think Pitman is some sort of statement signing and we’re glad he’s gone.

Perhaps that should have been a ‘marquee’ signing seeing as he’s moved to the tented village.

No you're right, the statement signing was appointing Ben Garner as manager. A real statement that is.

And Barton has done so well. How he managed to guide you to being 5 points adrift of our complete basket case club last season was astounding.

No doubt he’ll carry on the good work - if not banged up, of course.

Tbf Dan you’re excited for Garner, you’ve seen the reviews from thousands and you’re still excited for him...

That speaks louder than a striker who’s only had one bad club in his career, where he was still your top scorer.

Not particularly excited to be perfectly honest, but from where we were just 3 weeks ago the difference is outstanding. I’m sure Garner isn’t the first manager to fail at one club and do fine at another - Wellens was the same. You do, though, seem to specialise in underperforming managers. Maybe it’s your set up - I have no idea.

Surely, though, you can’t be happy with the stench of Barton permeating through your club. Doubtful he can survive - guilty or not.

I thought this was about Pitman?

I’d disagree with your statement tbh. We did well with DC & GC - Garner worst manager in our history, Tisdale was as expected and Barton, let’s see. The latter 3 were all within 1 year.

Until Garner came in we’d been pretty successful in managers and set up since 2014, Garner changed and ruined all of that.

I was told on here numerous times at the beginning of last season by our freinds at Swindon..........wait for it
That pitman was a step up from Doyle

So you have got yourself one hell of a player Gassy

Ah well. What will be, will be.

We’ll both probably end up being crap again!

He didn't get paid did he? Fair enough I say.

He got paid very well last season when ambling around like an old man in a garden centre.

What I will say is that I think this move is the best for all parties. His heart clearly wasn't in it with us and he gets a good move to a team that should be challenging in league 2 this season.

Win win for both clubs - ill be doing an ex Swindon double this season for Pitman top scorer in league 2 and Charlie Austin in the Championship.

Well said AS. Probably best to put this debate to bed now.

Anyone else getting “this season’s Masi vs. Tranmere borefest” vibes with GGMI vs. Swindon?
in fairness it was not ever me against Tranmere it was 3 posters one being a Tranmere fan
The other two were from Grimsby and Port Vale.......Nothing against all 3 teams

Thankfully we have now moved on
