They said on our local news down here earlier that Plymouth`s new Mayflower Stand has a 5,300 capacity. That means it could pretty much seat the entire G*s home attendance.

Obviously far too small for their away support though.

I read somewhere about Sunderland putting a 600k price tag on JCH.

I had to laugh, but sounds about right. Other clubs putting THEIR price tags on OUR players. 
 



Especially for what would be, a backwards move

Well, according to some of them they’re bigger than quite a few Championship clubs.

Sunderland with their huge all seater stadium, recent Premier League history, double FA Cup winners, 6 times League Champions and 30,000 crowds in L1 are positively tinpot compared to the ‘mighty’ gas.

Deluded idiots.

The bloke would be IDEAL.

He believed getting caught doing this was less embarrassing than taking the Rover's job...

Mind you, it would give a whole new meaning to "coming for us"

Love the thread on ‘What Improvement Next’ - the OP listing the improvements to The Swamp under Wally.

Bewildered how they’ve overlooked Santa’s Grotto,  the (assumed) part-finished pergola structure for their disabled supporters and the porch canopy over the stand entrance door, hailed as ‘Ground Improvement  of the Year 2017’.

It must have been dem pesky teds - there’s no way the ‘loyalest’ fans in the world would stoop to those levels - cos everyone loves them and hates us - it’s true, cos they said so ...

Hargreaves gotta be most likely out of that lot I would have thought... (thats if he's not planning to jump ship sometime soon … maybe he knows something CG knew too ! ;)

Hmm, just as I thought.. 🤔

Lee Johnson. Club stalwart and decent managerial reputation at Oldham then Barnsley. 

Steve Cotterill, good reputation at Cheltenham, Forest etc etc etc

Sean O’Driscoll, (before joining us) pedigree as one of the best coaches outside the PL  

 

versus

Scooby Doo, ex Salisbury then

Father Ted, ex God knows where,

now the Academy Manager (basically a Scout Leader). 

 

Mind the Gap.

Mansfield, MANSFIELD! HA, of all the teams he could have gone to. 

And one that's 18th in League Two. Brilliant, just brilliant.

The gift truly keeps giving.

.....and they chuckled at ‘the mass exodus of rats leaving the sinking ship’ (their words) when we sold Mags, Joe, Bobby and Aden - then looked a bit chastened when we scooped the best of £25m with those sales, before upgrading not long after with Webster and three Chelsea players .... every time they think they can laugh at us their club quickly makes them look ridiculous, tinpot and forever small-time - like now, when it looks like their management team is buggering off to league two Mansfield ...😄🍷

Sadly, the Gaschat thread on their homophobic chanting has been moved away from their main board and locked.

Evidently, none of them have any significant problem with this, otherwise they would let the conversation run and find out who might be a challenge going forward.

Not sure Wally has budgeted for that £7,500 fine.  That's sure to put another dent in their losses.

Manager and caretaker both off to join a bigger and progressive club in L2 that actually put them out of the Football League a few years back too.

Homophobic chanting from the 'family club' - The gift never seems to stop giving.  A brilliant pre Christmas gift or three for us all here.

Indeed. Can't really classify a tent zip as a door can you? 

Will the last person out please close the flap?

At least you can hear their stadium announcer I suppose 😃

Yeh, but with their attendances he doesn’t need a microphone ...”...now gather around ladies and gents, here are the team changes...”

...then a few minutes after that, he announces the crowd changes ... it doesn’t take long: “...unfortunately Lee from Patchway can’t be with us today, he’s got an urgent ‘cash in hand’ plumbing job to attend to...”

Mate,, he's a pretty good plumber to be fair ..

It's just awkward that he doesn't have a van....

Maybe the slags could buy FGR's old ground? 

Gets them out of our hair! :)

Oh yeah, they're skint, as usual.

Actually Ska, you might be giving Rovers an idea. Miah, if you're reading this, please tell whoever needs to know that Mansfield in the 70s (cant be sure of exact date) needed a new main stand. They bought an existing one from a racecourse that was closing down. Oh the puns if Rovers did likewise or bought a stand or two fron FGR.
