  1. Required to be filed at Companies' House 31 March; they are usually presented at an AGM prior to that so I guess about now if you look at the gas forums.
  2. My mistake. We've had at least one thread before where people have insisted that it should be "A T E Y O" as that is how it's pronounced. (had to do it in capitals as there is a forum autocorrect)
  3. They do spell it Atyeo; unless you're suggesting that's wrong. Yeo as in the river, Yeovil and yeoman.
  4. QPR settled last July. A figure of £65m was being talked about IIRC. It turned out ot be £17m fine plus £3m costs = £20m of yer actual money. Payable over ten years. And £22m of loans to be converted to equity; something Steve does most years without being forced to do it. So about a third of the propsctive fine; paybale over ten years. http://qprdot.org/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=80969
  5. I watched a clip of Dick when I heard the news; the way he hits the strings is unreal. I hadn't seen a guitar played like that.
  6. Junior could be superb, sprinting down the wing and skinning the full back. On his day he was amazing. Other days he would seem to lose his confidence and instead not want to risk losing the ball and just tap it tamely back to Carey. When he went to ?Blackpool on loan he rediscovered his confidence and they couldn't believe we'd loaned out such a star player. As an aside whoever put in the player ratings for Championship manager 94 clearly saw his good performances as he often ended up with some England caps.
  7. Is "concrete" today's special word? Or is Wael giving us an insight into what Dwane Developments or Wiztek have planned for the ground so the word is muchly on his mind. Wiztek https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/company/10664221/filing-history Dwane Developments https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/company/11253528/filing-history Rovers, accounts to end June 2018 due by the end of March. https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/company/04501223/filing-history
  8. I've said that the club doesn't want to go up yet. It's 90% a Championship squad so would need wholesale replacement. Preston openly said back in the 90s when they looked likely to go up that it was too early for their long term plan and if they did go up then they would buy nobody and would come straight down again; spending the additional money on training facilities and improving the ground with the aim of going up and staying up in a few years' time when they were ready. Had we really wanted to go up this year then we would have spend big last summer; if we spend big this summer then we're going for it.
  9. Bring back Ernie (Ginger) Peacock! 1946–1959 343 Appearances. Still remembered as a dirty player by an elderly Rovers fan of my acquaintance. And described by the website below as having "the look and bearing of an evil 19th century mill owner." https://beyondthelastman.com/2016/03/17/bristol-city-vintage-1958-73/
  10. Well the Mousehole rumour was wrong. They have been bought by Dicky Evans, owner of the Cornish Pirates rugby team. Or as he should now be known: Cornwall's Steve Lansdown. It makes some kind of sense as he'll now own two thirds of the stadium but Truro City is losing £250k a year and a shared stadium won't fix that. Edit for link: https://www.cornwalllive.com/news/cornwall-news/cornish-pirates-owner-dicky-evans-2623117
  11. That's the problem with modern football; the players are so cosseted that they don't see throwing wheelie bins at each other round the back of Romeo Brown's as a decent night out.
  12. Good point. I don't believe that any Div 3 club could beat a full strength Chelsea u23s, for example, so I think the big clubs are deliberately fielding weakened sides in the later stages so that you don't get the nightmare outcome you suggest. It does look like it's paving the way for premiership reserve teams getting into the lower leagues. Currently I think there's a Level 10 top limit. In the South West Peninsula League, level 10, there is a Plymouth Argyle u23 team who are always in the top two which is unsurprising given their professional back up and full time players being up against part timers getting changed in a hut. The Freight Rover ingress of such teams looks to be part of an attempt to start creeping that level 10 upwards into the conference and ultimately the league.
  13. It also was a family thing rather than just the father and son as it tends to be these days. My mother's whole family used to go. I assume that this fell away as football hooliganism began to arise in the 1970s as you wouldn't want your wife and daughter being terrified of getting hit. These days the atmosphere is more conducive but the pricing means that it is no longer the cheap family day out that it was back then.
  14. I keep hearing it as Sheba Leaves; which sounds like a vegetarian cat food.
  15. Oh I see; it's one of those deceptive photographs where you confuse whose legs are whose!
