The only figures that matter are the end of season average for the whole campaign. To the best of my knowledge they haven’t bettered our away support figures this century and certainly not since 2012.

There is no challenge, Gasheads saying they have better away support than us are talking bollocks and the statistics prove this.

They will take over 2000 next week but then they’ve only visited St Andrew’s twice in the last 25 years. Like their trips in the cup to places like Molineux the novelty factor will bump up there attendance for this game. Then it’ll be back to the usual 400-500 for the trips to grounds they visit every season.

I bet we don't!

If ever there was a photo that screams “conference level”, this is it. 

Stop insulting the Conference.

So there first kit is blue, and their away kit is blue. How does that work? Also it is also described as unique in the post!! How is that Unique? Is it because it will be the hardest shirt to find someone wearing? Tinpot

Oh you will.

Saturday afternoon trip to St Andrews for the first time since 1994...I’d bet my mortgage that the away following will be way over 2k. 

After the game quite a few of your fellow Sags will be all over social media proclaiming that the Gas have the best away support in the land...

Lies like “we take more than THE SHIT everywhere we go...”

and my favourite...”our away support is really speshul, we take 40% of our home support to away games, no one can match that

....whilst ignoring that the whole ‘away support to home support’ ratio thing only shows how poor the home support is.

On a different note I see the losers on slagchat have got wind of the rumour of Taylor to Oxford and quite a few want us to loan him to them.

For those of you from slagchat reading this (and we know you do), it won't happen because your owner publicly stated you would not do business with us again after Taylor signed for us. Well done Wally, you shot yourself in the foot. You want a creative midfielder? You could have had Morrell (see how he is doing at Lincoln).

It took them 2 years to plug that telly in, if you think they know how to order kit them think again.

I doubt they will.

They might had it been a cup game against Brum, as that would be a big day out for them. But it's only a league game against Cov so nothing special.

They’re away to Coventry next week at St Andrews.  So the challenge is on.  Will they take more than we did today.  Their bollocks about having a greater away support than us is finally on the line.

That is a massive day out for them. I’d fully expect them to easily take more that 2k to it.

Rovers’ CEO (don’t titter) Martyn Starnes may be gardening next week.

Not good weather for gardening. 

I wonder if there has been a leak or two and someone needs to plug the hole in the garden?

Strange situation really. Wally knows people want to buy him out. Fruit market owners know someone wants to buy the site. Both situations are not conducive to negotiating a reasonable price for either purchase. If this is a consortium, then it's because they've had to pool resources, so that info being made public won't help the cause. Any relocation of the tenants of the fruit market must be acceptable to them and people affected by where that site is. Any application for a stadium will obviously be met by opposition from local groups about traffic impact, environmental impact, noise, light, hooliganism. Any application for demolition and over development of the rugby ground site will be met with opposition, about over development, noise, dirt, extra vehicle movements.

Personally I think it's a good place for a stadium, as Temple Meads was for an arena. Transport options are already in place for buses and trains and there's an almost direct link from the M32. Lots of hurdles to cross yet, not least keeping the cost down and having the funding, which the council will have to make sure of with any large venture/proposal. The council originally decided there would be no parking for an arena but, this proposal will be for nearly double the capacity of that plan and must prove it's able to cope with that capacity and it's impact on the surrounding areas which will be extensive when at capacity, if and when bigger teams go there, or there's a local derby verses FGR, Bath City, Manor Farm or the mighty Mango's.

Linked with Oxford loan move. We play Oxford at home in 2 weeks...

If he signs for Oxford, that’s 3 points for them in the bag because you just know that he’ll score the winner at the Mem.

I ended up in Downend earlier to meet an old mate and we had a pint in the Downend Tavern.

I never realised it was a Gas pub but the couple of Rovers related pictures on the wall and the state of the clientele gave it away.

We made a break for the Horseshoe after one pint, it was bloody depressing in the Tavern.

Wasn’t a Matty Taylor winner for them, about the last time that they celebrated a home win..?

I see one of the highlights of yesterday for them was the debut of the big screen. One of them thought that having the players` pictures up when the team was read out was a `nice touch`.

The next post says that the person posting couldn`t see the screen as some of the scaffolding supporting one of the tents got in the way.

Just as well Sinclair's gone to Warsaw then. A 20 foot high shot of his mug would be enough to make the villagers scream and run, spoil the ham and turn the milk sour (or should that be Fanta?)

Conference? Even at Maidenhead Utd, my local team now, you wouldn’t be able to take a photo of a corner of the ground without showing one single supporter in the frame.

I see the excuse for the sub-10000 crowd on Saturday was the fact that POTD attendees had to buy tickets at the ticket office portakabin rather than cash on the turnstiles. Must have been so confusing for the poor dears.
