About the same as someone with a mild criticism of the sa*gs being allowed to post on their echo chamber of a forum.

There`s more free speech allowed in a coffee shop in Pyongyang than there is on there.

They must be down to about 20 regular posters who dictate the agenda.

Long may it continue. Nothing exposed, no pressure, no questions of management/board and anyone trying to, gets blown away with vitriolic rhetoric. It's always been the same, aided and abetted by the local media.

I notice this Fewer below fails to pick out the running commentary from a certain Colin Daniel fixture 🤔 now that is pure porn, bollox to your ‘Poetry’

Buried within that decade long thread, is a minute by minute commentary of the Dagenham game and how we were ‘bottling it’. The moment they realise Browner scores 90+2 really is something to behold. If anyone has some time free, definitely track those moments down, it is pure poetry.

I heard this on the TV this morning and thought that maybe the Sags could make a few quid by suing Co op for stealing their catchphrase.

Shame it wasn't Sainsburys. Mind you if they fall out with another supermarket the boycotting could become a pandemic, eventually they might not have anywhere to shop.

There's still always Aldi & Lidl.  Isn't that where they shop for their players.  Even the infamous Paul Randall was working in a supermarket when they signed him.

Well I never knew that PSR.  He had digs next door to my gran when he joined us and he would occasionally kick a ball around in the street with us even though he was a couple of years older than we were (whoops- I've given my age away now 😀).

Nothing wrong with petrol pump attendants though.  I had a part time job as one as a kid and served fuel to Gerry Gow and Trevor Tainton. I think Trevor Jacobs may have come in once or twice too.

That was certainly possible because back then, people paid for just about all of their purchases in cash.

*said attendant would often wash/wipe your windscreen for you or add a shot or two of Redex to your fuel.. (petrol which was leaded and came in  2* , 3*, & 4* star quality and price variants btw) . All the while the driver remained seated in the comfort of his motor and was thanked as 'Sir/Madam' at the conclusion of the transaction.   

Also during the fun time non PC days of the 70's , petrol station events and promotions even included on occasion ' Topless Petrol Forecourt Attendants' usually provided by well proportioned ample bosomed local blond and brunette beauties.  I remember one such 'topless attendant event' at my local petrol station  in Longwell Green so know its a fact that it happened 😉. Those were the days my friends!

And back then, it wasn't unusual for some drivers to avoid 'self service' stations as they didn't know how to fill their cars with fuel.

Also, remember the dedicated paraffin pump?

The last place I ever saw with attendants was a petrol station in Leytonstone in the late 90s.

Although there you had to pay them first and they existed purely to stop people trying to do a runner!

Well I must say that I wasn't expecting this.  Maybe @bert tann can shed some light.

This is a necessary step so that the owners can put in more equity without having to go down the full rights issue route; Steve Lansdown regularly does this as it allows money to go in that isn't caught by FFP rules.

It is also money that you can't just hoik out by selling the ground, unlike the Dwane Sports loan.

I don't know if I really should be posting positive news for the fewers on this thread but that's certainly what it is; I suppose it provides a bit of balance to the thread.

(I was actually lookng to see if their Filton company had been struck off yet as that was due to happen today).

This is the 1883 company - the one in which people own the shares; equivalent to our BCFC Holdings.

You'll have to break that down to me in layman's terms.

Are you saying that Wally would be able to dilute the share capital and lump more money in as equity without a vote on the right to do so?

In which case, that is probably good news for the Fewers.

Yes, exactly that.

It sounds like bad news for existing shareholders but it isn't.

Since Steve started doing the same with City my shareholding has maybe halved but as the value of the club has more than doubled I haven't lost out.

This is a real surprise to me that the AQs are going down this road having previously said that they "couldn't" for some spurious reason.

Maybe Wally got a gold star in his history test and cleaned his bedroom without being asked and his Dad has agreed to keep the club for another year.

Could it be they are paving the way for a takeover that would allow Wally to keep a percentage?

And Collie O'Neill has come up with a lovely new spin on how to refer to a Gap.

 For his younger lads who'll be stepping up from Under 19's to fill the holes left by departing players, he described the massive difference as

 

"a canyon and a half"………….thank you Collie, for this wonderful expression, I truly doff my cap.                      

…………………..🎩

Anssi Jaakkola their latest signing. Backup for Reading last season. Reading fans seem to surprisingly rate him as a good goalkeeper who's good enough to be backup lower end of Championship level. Seems to be being chucked out due to injuries. So my prediction is he'll be great until he gets injured and then they'll have Van shotstopper or whatever his name is who will be the worst goalkeeper League 1 has ever seen.

 

Also seem to have pretty much sealed up a deal for UCD defender Liam Scales. Irish CB aged 20, he's actually somehow been targeted a lot by Manchester City U23s, which is of course a good sign for little clubs like Rovers to look at when deciding the quality of a player. But seems decent, of course, Gasalogical sags overhyping him and not realising Manchester City look at a large quantity of U23s and even if they're signed that doesn't mean they're class. But for Gas standards, probably 2 good signings. But just a testament how big the gap is that we've got a better keeper and a goalkeeper only a little worse as what seems to be our third choice and a more experienced defender today.

Just spotted the same thing whilst looking at the Filton Avenue company too. It does look like positive news however you look at it. I'm still a bit surprised they appear to be letting the dormant companies get struck off.
