I think any Dutch player signing for the sorry sags would have to be Blind.

That would have to be Danny though, as he is in his late 50's..

Gonna have to correct you Bazooka. The Sag Supremo has previously confirmed on Radio Bristol that it's Cock not Cough...

Thanks.

I tried using that pronunciation when I popped into Boots for some cough syrup this morning.

The assistant called me a coughy so-and-so and asked me to leave.

FGR today signed goalkeeper Adam Smith who was released by the SAGS (after playing 28 league games in 2 seasons). On signing Smith said ‘I think it’s a good opportunity to move my game on to the next level’. Don’t you just love it.

Things flapping around in the background (“roofs” in Bristol Rovers case) is very distracting for goalkeepers. 

He must be relishing the opportunity to focus on a football. 

EDIT: and that’s not even allowing for Babestation being on in the background..!

I'm not even sure it's that!

From what I can tell in open source - AJIB has a current market cap of about $225M. The family have a holding of about 28% which gives you a value of about $71M. The family also have a 28% holding in a tourism based company with a market cap of $142M which works out at about $40M - so a family wealth of $110M odd.

Of note, WAQ has about 4% in each company worth about $16M. Obviously not too shabby but hardly large in football stake.

I would assume the family have lots of other holdings elsewhere but I doubt they add up to $300M!!

I'm not sure it's that either. When I looked the other week and posted (#52047) I think you may have confused US with Jordanian dollars. I think he's actually worth about half that you've calculated. Wouldn't that be a shame....?

I had market cap at JOD 180M which based on 1 Jordanian Dinar = 1.41 Dollars came to the figure above. Haven't looked at that post yet as I'm currently walking a hyperactive pug!

The losers must be looking at our 3 latest signings with envy.  Turning from blue to green.

Highly doubtful, the GasLogic in them are actually p!ssing themselves as SL chucks more money at another ‘failed’  82ers promotion bid.

Whilst Wally is looking around the back of Sinclair’s old pissed stained sofa in the Mem car park to fund their next free transfer, it’s all good though as they all prefer to stay as they are and not be ran like them Ted’s, as they still have their identity.

Pre-Season: Rovers to Head to Ireland for Training Camp

 

We can confirm that the first-team squad will be travelling to Ireland for a pre-season training camp, to further preparations for the 2019/20 Sky Bet League One season.

The trip will see the squad depart on Monday, 8th July to the Irish capital.

As part of the training camp, the first-team will face St. Mochta’s FC in a pre-season friendly on Wednesday, 10th July (7:45pm KO).

 

Admission prices for the game will be priced at €5 for adults and free for children, with tickets available on the evening at the stadium (St. Mochta’s FC, Porterstown Road, Porterstown, Dublin 15. Ireland).

Talking about the training camp, Manager Graham Coughlan said, “Pre-season is a time to put in the hard yards that set the foundations for the season ahead.

“We originally had a local training camp in the pipeline, but for reasons out of our control, that environment wasn’t right to allow us to put in the essential work on the training ground that is needed at this time of year.”

“We understand that the trip has been arranged at short notice, but the opportunity to take the lads away, just for a few days, will aid in team bonding and boost the squad morale in the weeks ahead of the season starting.

“We will be getting the players as best prepared as possible for the new season and we believe that this trip will allow us to achieve that goal.

“We would like to thank St. Mochta’s for arranging to face us in a pre-season game, that will help us get more minutes into the squad as we edge closer to the start of the season.”

Rovers begin their pre-season season schedule against Yate Town on Saturday, 6th July at Lodge Road(1pm KO).

Does this mean they haven't built that new training ground? Surely that can't be right?

Does that story really quote their manager as saying their training ground isn't up to Pre-season?

The quote is "We originally had a local training camp in the pipeline, but for reasons out of our control, that environment wasn’t right" so as much as I'd love to laugh at the gas not having their own training ground it looks as though he is referring to another training facility where they had originally hoped to hold their pre-season training camp. Perhaps it was high tide on Weston beach so they couldn't train there?
