Concrete, metal and a nice view. With no tents in sight.

It looks cold but otherwise would be a big improvement on the Memorial. Maybe the 15ers could move to Scotland? I'm sure they could be a half decent Highland/Lowland League side.

I think they’d move anywhere as long as they could squat at, then steal, some other club’s stadium. They are the Airdrieonians of English football ... what that club did to Clydebank still rankles, it was despicable ...

Here’s one of the terraced ends at Gayfield Park a few years back - and yes, that is the North Sea... I think that trumps Shrewsbury needing a boat on the local river for ball retrieval when they were at their previous ground ...

What did they do? Hail a passing trawler and ask for their ball back?

I still haven't managed to get to this one, pretty much top of my lists of grounds to do.

What about Championship grounds (new) you can't have been to many them. Unless you're really old..!

Jofra Archer has suggested that crowd noise should be played through the PA at Cricket matches where there are no spectators to make the situation “as normal as possible” for the players.

That’s nothing, Rovers have been covering up their shit atmosphere by pumping crowd noise through the PA for years...

You have got to be joking? That makes me think they are even more pathetic that I thought they were and didn't think that possible!

The bloody speakers hardly ever work properly, so this bloke must have ears like a bat if he heard something.

Clap piping, tent erecting, boob juggling, erotica watching, fact "bending," myth peddling, plain lying, Memorial trashing, horse assaulting, minibus abusing, rival envying, ground hopping/thieving hoof ball League One parasites, then. To sum up.

Let’s hope an asshead didn’t eat his mate’s bat ears, thus starting this pandemic  😷

Well I was hoping to take a nice lump sum a couple of months ago, recent events put paid to that though :(

Same here, had a pensions statement this morning actually. 10% gone in 2  months! :( Not old enough to take a lump sum yet anyway but near enough to be affected.

You're lucky it's just 10 %! I had a lot of plans this year, all down the pan now I'm afraid.

That's one of 3 Miah, the second I don't know and the 3rd is final salary so should be ok, I hope. At 53, it's alarming and may mean early retirement plans have to be looked at again even though my plan was to go at 60.

Mine was over 25% down at one point! Just checked and it's risen to about 9% below it's peak now. Three years to wait so should be enough recovery time....

Maybe that's why mine was showing a 9% drop Rich, it's recovering. As you say, let's hope they fully recover in time eh!

I've seen us have two spells in the second tier, so I guess that does make me really old :}

Ten years in the second tier, in your whole life, seven of those before you were eighteen and, twenty six years since the last time, that's genuinely sad.  I have to admit, you've got some staying power. And I complain about our relative lack of success in my lifetime, plus ten on yours.
