Old Wally making an appearance on the radio Saturday according to the Sgas. Could be an interesting listen with him answering every question with actual answers and timeframes etc... If he comes out with the line "these things take time", it will be comedy gold. If nothing is actually stated by him, I can see there being some pretty nasty abuse being directed at the board on Saturday - although they may still break the bank on some strikers this week yet.....

He’ll come out with the usual shite about being patient, we are working on loads of things blah, blah, blah, and as usual the fewers will lap it up and he’ll be the messiah again for a few months until they realise nothing is still happening.

Rumours going around that their new pop up stand isn’t going to arrive on time 😂

As I understand it the builders have said they`ve got to finish tarmacking an old lady`s drive in Kingswood and when she`s paid them the £40,000 in cash for it they can start on the mem. 

This is provided the council don`t get the court order they`ve applied for. If they do, they`ll have to break in to another leisure centre car park and that will take a while.

Funnier still, some 15ers have bought season tickets for these "stands" that don't exist !!

Nothing new for that lot, didn’t they travel up to Cheltenham to choose their seats, for when the work was starting on UWE? 😂

That'll be the piggy bank then.

Exclusive look at DC's transfer Kitty - seems Wael left him something......

Would be great if the host turned round and said "things take time but you're losing 2 million a year - surely you're nearing the point of no return?"

I think he'd fake a heart attack to avoid answering...

So it will be ‘Teds’’ fault they don’t sign this player, another game where city fans have caused problems.

Thought the Blue Few were admired throughout football ?!

They are,the far right love them.

Whenever a neutral is asked about which is their favourite team of two in a city they will usually pick the weakest one because they will have had no rivalry or incidents with them; they're not a competitor.

So Port Vale or Stoke: Port Vale

Notts County or Forest: County

 

Rovers is the small team so less competition hence neutrals selecting them.

The only exception I have is preferring Sheffield Wednesday to United as I associate United with a physical long ball game and Wednesday with a bit of passing and flair.

Yeah I was there and despite our woeful performances it was sad to see him go in the way he did and many of us had great sympathy for him. I think he may have hung around a bit for Smith to be ready to take over, clearly as demonstrated at Forest his heart hadn't been in it for some time.

I was there too. It was a shame because Jimmy was a cracking No 2 and had some good contacts in the game. Hence signing Jacki.

He was a genuinely nice guy too. I grew up in Ashton and often saw Jimmy in the CosyCafe/Al's Tikka Grill

Taken from AssChat;

"We want our money back"

 "Me and my family have no stand to which we have purchased season tickets to watch the football from. If this issue is not sorted during the coming week we will be asking for a full season ticket refund and will go to games on a pay on the day"

A Gashead who writes like Eric Morecambe played the piano : the correct words but not necessarily in the right order.  I also love the flaw in his argument, what makes him think buying a ticket would enable him observe football being played?

Still no sign of the new stand.....

So it looks like the new east stand hasn't arrived yet. I know they said it was quick to put up, but surely 4 days before the game is cutting it a bit fine.

We already know the SW stand is delayed, and people will be moved to the south stand instead. Will the people who have a ticket for the NE stand be directed back to the family terrace? Presumably some of them will need the seat they paid for and will therefore go to the South Stand. The away fans who bought seats will need their segregated area in the south stand. That's a lot of people being redirected to the south stand.

Combine that with a new automatic turnstile system that has never been match tested, it could be a fun Saturday.

The good news is the official from the camping club is free to issue a safety licence once Rovers get an erection.
