My memory is probably wrong, but I thought the first year of the play offs saw a 'to be' relegated side playing a 'to be' promoted side.

 

Which, imho, is a much better way of deciding things.

Correct and we were involved in one when we played Sheff U and beat them then lost to Walsall .

I'd disagree with that. By playing (assuming we don't finish in the top 2!) Other divisional rivals we would likely have a much better game plan than if we were thrown in against a Newcastle (or Chelsea as the Prem stands) and would suggest promotion is achieved by being the best of the rest, than trying to be better than one of the worse from the league above.

Obviously one of the many Championship clubs who aren’t actually envious of their ‘bonkers’ away support is us as we clearly travel in larger numbers. Think that’s worth pointing out again.

I doubt South Yorkshire plod would agree given the aftermath of us relegating Blades that night.

IIRC it was one of the main reasons the format was changed - the theory was if a side got relegated via the playoffs trouble was almost certainly going to happen but if a side only failed to go up it was less likely.

No chance of that I’m afraid. Quite a few gullible City fans on here who obviously hang around with Sagheads in the pub on a Saturday night and totally believe their bullshit about away support. Doesn’t matter how many facts and examples you show them.

St Andrews isn’t even a ‘new’ ground for most of our supporters, we go there every year. That 1450 yesterday for the Gas included their day trippers who only bother with the bigger stadiums 🤣

 

I think a few have forgotten to factor in miahs numnut mates who rocked up at the ricoh waiting til 5.30 for the gates to open

Following their goalless start to the season, a shock new survey reveals most Gash fans are no longer interested in spending a good night with Irene.

Most of them would settle for being on nodding terms with Annette.

Can they drop much further?

Could we be seeing crowds of under 1k come the end of the season if the decline is so rapid?

I would love to see this revived. Bottom two go down and op two from league below go up. Third bottom in the higher league plays third top in the lower league home and away two-legger for the third spot.

Still happens in the Scottish leagues. From memory I think it was stopped in England after trouble between Chelsea and Middlesbrough.

I think we took about 4k up to Sheffield for a night game, always remember Wednesday fans out on the streets applauding us as we left Sheffield.

It was rather surreal. I remember driving down a dual carriageway back to the motorway in convoy with the supporters` coaches and there was some sort of club high up on one side with a huge outside area which was filled with Owls fans cheering and waving us on our way.

I remember the bring and buy sales from Blue Peter. Sadly Blue Peter changed his colour to red and scored against the Gas in the last league derby to date at AG in Dec 2000.

Where on earth do they find these deluded cretins?

He/she/it is factually correct on one thing for a change in mentioning "gas" and "spark" in the same sentence and hopefully do us all a favour and in doing so get rid of all that methane quickly.

So who can rightfully and genuinely claim to have first used and coined the wonderful expression of “mind the gap”.

Not a challenge or knock down, but just intrigued to know if we can actually identify and thank who created (OK London underground might have a shout here) when they first used the accurate and amusing analogy between ourselves and the Gas?

IIRC, after we played, extremely well, at the Etihad a couple of years ago, there were a couple of gasheads that went straight on to the Man C forums slagging us off and saying they 'would have taken more fans', 'much better club', 'love us more than them gurt 'teds' etc only to be embarrassed by the Man C collective. It made for great reading on the long trip home as I remember it. 

Like Man C fans give a shit! 

I think it’s a fair assumption that Rovers would take more to Manchester, on a Tuesday night, than they get at home games..!

Ah, but surely there were only about 3,500 Coventry fans? The Gas may only have taken 1,400 but the rest of the crowd was made up of Brum fans there to support them because they are universally loved by the fans of all other clubs. QED.

What I remember most about this match apart from the imperial Joe Jordan coming on as sub and running the show was the very, very late arrival of most of their supporters.

 I naively thought that there weren’t many there considering the importance of the match and then two minutes before kick off  the ground turned red and very noisy.

Proper club the Blades and top support.

I finally got around to watching the EFL highlights last night, and thought I'd take a rare dip in to the League 1 highlights to see this "immense" and "bonkers" support that is "the envy of most Championship clubs".

Turns out that all I saw was a half full stand with lots of people sat around looking bored and occasionally abusing their own players after a goal... 🤔 Must have missed something!

I remember our brilliant away support , Shutts diving header , a young Peter Beadle and spending most of the game stood balanced on a barrier behind the goal (1980s safe standing !)

Brilliant night

They really don’t help themselves do they? From the top of that club to the dregs they all come out with the same shit, it’s like a disease they all suffer from.

...but apparently we’re the deluded ones
