Off to the Doctors later as I'm genuinely beginning to feel sorry for them. There seems to be no way back for them and it can only end one way 🤣

That's just what I said.

I was moved to look it up on google maps and you can see this area to one side of their main stand and a similar area to the other side.

It still looks like a carpark from the air.

It's there, at the top of the terrace. You can see the walkway

Again - I have to quote "and we are not allowed to stand in the back row", yet that is so called safe!! Do they not have a SAG in League One - surely they couldn't turn a blind eye for a sackful of out of date crisps and fake fanta could they?

We are truly gutted that a player we would all probably like to be successful in the future, has made a mistake for another team. He didn't seem to do that for us though, as we sold him for £22 MILLION (about the same as the poor saggies debt)!!

 

Poor sod wouldn't understand that high a figure,  better off saying the gashead equivalent of 660k. 😀

Actually, no. A Rovers STH friend of mine said that it was reported as the family stand, but wasn’t. It was the one that used to be, but isn’t now. 

Yes, exactly that.

Miah - we get that, I understood the first time you said it. What I don't understand is why one of YOUR own clubs supporters came on here to tell lies about the episode (as if to make Taylor out as some sort of coward). Maybe YOUR clubs supporter has read it somewhere and just another one of the Loyal and True who just don't bother to turn up anymore - and looking at those images who can blame them. Still at least you will be filling the 20000 stadium at the fruit market in 2 years.

Gas logic.... Webster sold for £20m ‘outmuscled’ by Nichols bought for £300k for the goal = Nichols worth £6,000,000,000. That’s 16,000 Tilson’s if my maths is correct.

Most facilities are created multi purpose nowadays.  E.g. A lot of office blocks could easily be converted to shopping centres if they were vacated. The Mem however, has been created to become a camel market once it has been vacated by the barely solvent, solvent abusing Sags.

If you want to bid on this camel raise 6 fingers.

TBF give them some credit; they beat Forest Green...

These recent photos perfectly illustrate that the facilities at that dump are out of the 60s (70s if being generous).

Unbelievable.

Pikeys seem not to notice though (that lack of self awareness again).

They're worse than any ground I think I've ever been to. Even worse than Trumpton.

Amazed at where Huddersfield are in that table.

To be fair to the Fewers, haven't they only just put their shirts in sale?

Just as the holiday season comes to an end and parents are spending a fortune on new school gear. I'm sure there is some logic in there somewhere.... GASLOGIC.

And the gas think they're a similarly sized club to Brighton 😂

I admit that I have never been inside the Mem -  not interested in rugby, and when we were playing them in the league/cups, I refused to pay money to go there on the principal that they would benefit financially. 

How the hell can they mock ANYTHING when the inside of their "ground" looks like that!?

Watching the local ITV news tonight. Oh my god. You would have thought they had won. Some women said she was pleased with their great cup run (of round 2), Apparently they were magnificent and matched Brighton (could have sworn the stats someone posted showed they were battered) and now Tom Nicholls is a legend after 2 goals in 2 games!!

After the Paddy Power gimmick they have a shirt without a sponsor on it, I suspect this has in part made it very popular.
