Here’s the league table when Super Joey took over. 
He’s taken them from 2 points above the relegation zone to 10 points below it. 
A miraculous 12 point swing in 16 games. 
Glorious. 
“But it wasn’t me guv” 🤣

More impressive is the job JFH has done with Burton, and the Wigan U23 team and the Wombles respective forms. Given that Swindon were above the line, were they claiming the league title at that point?

Yep. Jimmy has a 20 point swing on Joey over the same period. 
Brilliant.

Does Joey's contract get cancelled if he is sentenced to a few years in Horfield in the summer?

There has been very little discussion of this anywhere, JB is either a great bluffer or he more confidence in his defence team than in his teams defence! :)

Reading the Gerry Gow book today, listening to the further demise of the Gas, it brought tears to hear what a great man he was off the field but how he, as a true Red from 17/18 yrs old would have done the same as Tins here; taking sport to what it should be - competitive, fun, hard but caring, acknowledging winners & losers etc. The early chapters also remind me how similar the club was then to today; one great owner derided by some deluded fans (they used to write in to the B.Eve Post complaining about spending money on youth, the ground etc; whereas now they jump to keyboards) managers always disliked by a minority of 'fans' (even Alan Dicks was under pressure most seasons, castigated for taking risks in bringing in midfielders; - Gow/Massengo etc), supporters who always thought we should be in a higher place.

If Tins met a ex Rovers player who was a decent guy off the field, I'm sure both would be respectful but right now, today, we can forget about the Luton game, forget about ESL, EPL, UEFA, Euros in 48 days time, FFP, Carling Cup, etc etc ..... and just rejoice in the fact the gas are having yet another horrible day and thinking of things to do next year other than joining their terrible forum to complain about wealthy, successful neighbours

Top man Tins and to all on here who rejoice in their abject failure

`Ground, ground, ground, they forgot about the team`

Oh wait, they forgot about the ground as well!

Like a snooker player who misses the pot whilst concentrating on position. Forgot about the ground, the team, the infrastructure, the training ground etc......instead concentrating on their position in League 2. Bravo!!
