Wasn’t that John Ward? Shortly before Benny took over?

Could be my age but I recall two very similar incidents both arising after heavy losses at Ipswich. Both involved pretty decent human beings with, as you say, Ward being the other. In Glumsden's case I think we lost fairly early in the Season (hence my thoughts about DC post day 1) where he effectively offered his resignation but was cajoled to stay in position for a number of months despite a string of poor performances. I'll never forget one game at the end of his reign when he sat on his own on the far side of the pitch at Forest as we took a battering in the cup, looking like he hadn't a friend in the world and with the weight of his tragic, personal circumstance bearing on his shoulders.

Ward did a similar thing half a dozen years later post the 'Clarence Winerack' debacle but in his case and having learned the lesson of Jimmy L he departed almost immediately.

Lumsden was sacked after a 2-1 away defeat at Charlton which was played at Upton Park

ground

fans behaviour

Management 

signing budget

all from the 1970s

former local rivals Bristol city have been asked if they can assist in providing retro shirts for re runs of derby games and have asked the older fan base if their grandfathers have any old shirts worn at derby games in the loft

Oh dear, that awkward moment when one of your over excited fans updates Wiki to show the player now playing for you but it all falls through. 

Good job I got a screen shot before some one changed it back. 🤣

And now someone has changed it to Coventry City.

2015 appoint a "Head of Recruitment"*, then can't afford to recruit any players. Priceless ! :facepalm:

 

(* This "Head of Recruitment" was previously with Coventry, apparently.

Who have they lost out to, for this Bakayoko bloke ?

Yep, you guessed it, Coventry !)

  

2015, the gift that keeps on, keeping on, giving. 

The head of recruitment who's first recommendation was his own son..!?

Is that for real...?! 

Forget who’s modelling it. They have club merchandise of a Rovers jesters outfit...?! 

I’m assuming you are having a photoshop joke with this...?!

100% real. Brilliant on so many levels. 

Still up after player leaving 10 days ago.

A bloody jesters outfit. Shows the type of market they are selling to. 

And to title it up 'new gifts'

I’m not ashamed to say that I’m currently 16 pages through the 22 pages they’ve got on Bakayoko*  

I’ve got a feeling we’re fast approaching the part of the play where Coventry enter the fray. And boy am I looking forward to it. 

*fun fact. I once met Bakayoko.

Yeah I was there and despite our woeful performances it was sad to see him go in the way he did and many of us had great sympathy for him. I think he may have hung around a bit for Smith to be ready to take over, clearly as demonstrated at Forest his heart hadn't been in it for some time.

Makes me smile when even the gas fans are telling Rolex boy to put the club up for sale, who the F would be interested in buying that shower, Plymouth, Pompey, Oxford, Bradford, Luton, Coventry, Notts County, Port Vale just off the top of my head would be far better buys of teams in leagues 1 and 2 even Swindon !!! all those teams have got half decent grounds that wouldn't need at least 20 million spent on getting the ground up to scratch. Unless they have a SL type lurking in the background i can't see anyone being interested in buying them, they are in real trouble.

Old Wally making an appearance on the radio Saturday according to the Sgas. Could be an interesting listen with him answering every question with actual answers and timeframes etc... If he comes out with the line "these things take time", it will be comedy gold. If nothing is actually stated by him, I can see there being some pretty nasty abuse being directed at the board on Saturday - although they may still break the bank on some strikers this week yet.....

He’ll come out with the usual shite about being patient, we are working on loads of things blah, blah, blah, and as usual the fewers will lap it up and he’ll be the messiah again for a few months until they realise nothing is still happening.

Rumours going around that their new pop up stand isn’t going to arrive on time 😂

As I understand it the builders have said they`ve got to finish tarmacking an old lady`s drive in Kingswood and when she`s paid them the £40,000 in cash for it they can start on the mem. 

This is provided the council don`t get the court order they`ve applied for. If they do, they`ll have to break in to another leisure centre car park and that will take a while.

Funnier still, some 15ers have bought season tickets for these "stands" that don't exist !!

Nothing new for that lot, didn’t they travel up to Cheltenham to choose their seats, for when the work was starting on UWE? 😂
