  1. Gert or Gurt is a way of phonetically spelling the Bristolian abbreviation of Great. So, technically speaking, it should be spelt ‘gr’t’ (IMO).
  2. he drinks a vodka, he drinks a cider, his wallet’s ******* massive
  3. A chorus of “**** the EFL” followed by “we all hate Sky Sports” would be more appropriate.
  4. Blocking of the back row is quite common at away games where standing is tolerated. I think they keep it clear for access similar to stairways.
  5. There isn’t a great selection of emojis on this site and I thought the aubergine would be viewed as a personal insult rather than a dislike of the post. Perhaps a word with the mods if you think they’re inappropriate. my ‘buffoon ‘ comment refers to people jumping on social media posts which I had posted (Not on this site) and at no point have I suggested this forum does not produce valuable discussion. As sometimes people grab the wrong stick rather than the wrong end this underlines my point of the pitfalls of social media which the club are probably trying to defend against.
  6. From my post, I was trying to add some perspective to why there seems to be a lot of frustration with the lack of club/SLO interaction on this site, and why they maybe hesitant. A forum like this, however well moderated, is similar to twitter and Facebook whereby the quest to be heard/liked or just get your point of view across is like kids in a playground shouting to be heard (I don’t insinuate people on here are childish). In a sea of thousands of comments it’s usually the most controversial or aggressive (or funny) that get recognition. IMO that is one of the main faults with social media in general, but that’s probably best left for a different thread. For a club to expose itself to this in a culture where every post/tweet/comment is over analysed by those who may be wanting to criticise for their own social kudos (or financial gain in the media) will be risky and should be done with caution. But I do sometimes talk a complete load of cr*p.
  7. Agree with this, but trying to view this from the club/SLO perspective, why would they even consider engaging on this or any other social media site when the majority of commentators are anonymous keyboard warriors who love to argue and knock anything and everything the club does? In my experience dealing with MP, an email/phone call or face to face chat was all that was needed. Any social media questions would be ambushed by the aforementioned anonymous buffoons which no one, especially a business would want to get dragged into. IMO the FAN or a similar alternative would be the best way forward not the so-called fan meetings/lock-ins which only represent a small minority and are far from transparent.
  8. Personally I can’t see a problem with it. When Lee Tomlin was playing for us loads of fans turned out with big bellies in support of him and nobody complained. As they say, imitation is a form of flattery .
  9. I’ve had a very nice and prompt response from the SLO regarding musical instruments at the KCOM this weekend. Unfortunately this was from the Hull City SLO and all musical instruments, including drums, are not allowed
  10. Could be referring to the ‘who’s that team they call the Rovers ‘song ? Which ends with an occupational reference to the current managers mother. But fear not, as nobody can pronounce his name we probably won’t hear this again until he’s moved on.
  11. Thanks for the clarification, I stand corrected .
  12. Can’t see the complete email which was posted earlier in this thread, but it looks like it was going to read ‘a reduction in capacity ‘. This was threatened at Norwich last season because of persistent standing. I don’t know if it was carried out at Norwich but I believe that is why the singing section has a reduced capacity. The thing I can’t understand is if it is illegal to stand, how is it permitted in areas even with a reduced capacity? If people continue to stand then reduce the SS capacity to allow everyone to stand. There’s plenty of capacity elsewhere in the ground for sitting until rail seats can be installed.
