Remind me how that worked out with Sainsburys  ?

Basically the revamp of the pitch (before the current head groundsman joined us ) in the summer was a shambles and the club recently released a a video of an interview with the current groundsman. It seems the best we can hope for is to patch it up as we play and then start again in the summer.

It is rumoured that the recent suspension of an employee and the state of the pitch are not entirely unrelated.

Well I think I’m pretty safe on the libel front, I know very little about what’s going on at the minimal ground as there’s been very little reason to worry about what’s going on so I have no idea about any employees being suspended or otherwise. But let’s be honest, the pitch has always been a cabbage patch, it’s just that previously they blamed the previous owners of the ground for the state of the playing surface.

It really hasn't. It was awful to start with and only got mildly better in the first few years, but once the rugby went it improved drastically

But, but if Henbury Gas says it it`s true isn`t it? Why would someone in such an elevated and respected position amongst their fanbase resort to telling untruths? Surely he has more dignity and integrity than that.

Unless there have been mass suspensions at the Unmemorable the risk the you highlight appears to relate wholly to the premise you've just articulated. Luckily for you there's little hope of ever proving wilful damage against an individual given there are a minimum eleven, clog-footed argriculturalists harrowing both pitch and spectator's sensibilities each week.

Having watched Channel 5’s football highlights on Saturday night, what struck me was the state of the minimal grounds pitch! It was awful! I know they used to blame it on the former owners of the property (Bristol rugby) but they can’t use it as an excuse anymore & considering that we now have Bristol rugby at the Gate, our pitch shows little signs of wear & tear.

So who’s fault is the mud now?

I would suggest that it’s possibly down to them getting the fundamentals wrong & spending their entire budget on cleaning carpets & curtains instead of on where their points are won? Or maybe they have got it right as it gives them a ‘reason’ to play the ball in the air & avoid using what should be that green stuff under foot! Maybe that’ll explain why they are doing better at home than away because their opposition aren’t used to playing the ‘sore neck’ style of football & it’s all part of their philosophy of getting out of relegation trouble but surely the opposition will realise that they have to spend the week training before their game at getting used to seeing the ball up with the planes?

The problem is the same one as old - a natural spring underneath the pitch

Heard similar in the week, would explain why this someone was so say ‘harshly treated’ earlier on this season.

Why do these deluded idiots actually keep kidding themselves that any self respecting "Ted" would actually want to waste Saturday afternoon at that shitpit to watch that crap?

I don't think that Saghead was being serious, however like the times they joke about "fans locked out" they're seemingly mocking their own deluded mates who have come out with these things in the past.

Or...

They're mocking us for laughing at their deluded mates who have come out with these things in the past?

I don't know, strange behaviour.

I do find it amusing that they are getting their knickers in a twist crying about Bradford supporters celebrating their goal in front of them.

A few weeks ago the massive hypocritical turds were laughing and posting that video of the Wolves boss going mental after their winner at AG all over Facebook.

                                                  INDUSTRIAL RELATIONS NEWS

A man has been suspended after another man came in and allegedly took his job.

The man was surprised when the other man suddenly appeared out of nowhere and sat down at his desk and he soon discovered this man was the best friend of his boss’s son. Within a short time he had been moved to a Portakabin in the car park and asked to take over a new role following the restructuring which he was told had taken place.

In the ensuing months he searched and searched but could find no sign of any structure and was worried it may have been built on the wrong type of sand and had sunk into a black hole and disappeared.  When he expressed these concerns his boss was very angry and told him there was a good reason why so many creditors were not paid on time and anyway it was none of his business.

Consultants have been appointed to dermine the length of time the structural girders in the roof of the Professional Risks Stand will be capable of maintaining this suspension.

Is working in a Portakabin an improvement on their previous working environment which may have been a patio chair in a tent?

Is this another critic of the politburo being sent away for re-education then Bert?

I`d love it if in five years time someone writes a Michael Wolff style book on the goings-on at the Mem over the last few years - I`d buy it!
