No pain, no gain for Potter

Herald Series: Alfie Potter Alfie Potter

DON’T worry, Alfie Potter wasn’t the victim of a training ground prank yesterday, it was for his own good.

The wheelie bin was being used as an ice bath to help the players recover from tough pre-season sessions.

The 23-year-old winger said: “My legs were feeling very stiff, so I needed it – our physio Andy Lord saw a study which said 20 minutes is ideal.

“I didn’t quite enjoy it, but it’ll be worth it if I feel better.”

So this is the new high tech medical facility we have learned from Wigan rugby club, and it cost £150,000 I could have supplied one for a lot less.

I see were helping you out again by loaning Lee Cox and by the way all your fans on your forum nearly always get their facts wrong about wages we pay and fees we pay according to you lot we paid alot of money for Cox last season well if you think 50k is alot of money then only you lot understand that.
Cox is an attacking midfield players only played a handful of games and got injured and No he didnt fall out with Di Canio as some of your other fans are saying the reason he hasnt been given a sqaud number is we have brought in proven L1 players. If he's fit he will be a good player.
Your almost like our reserve side all these players we keep loaning you as it was Kerrouche last season but you only started him in one game and a couple sub appearences and to me Wilder wasted his opportunity with Kerrouche as he is a good player.

I like that you are factually accurate but seriously this is a story about Alfie Potter and his bad leg not Swindon Town.

I'd rather we pay a specialist a lot of money and he spends a little on equipment we do need than pay an idiot little money and he spends a lot on equipment we don't.

However I'd also like to think this is subconscious encouragement 'play well for us or you'll end up living in one of these!'

Isn't it a shame when the "Reserve Team" beat the 1st team home and away in season ;-) Poor LeKnob he doesn't quite grasp the loan theory, its mutual, we are helping you out by paying Lee Cox's wages and giving him game time he wouldn't normally get and Swindon are helping Oxford out, at least the clubs have got the right attitude, maybe one day LeKnob will too, we live in hope!!.
