When you look at the top end of L1 table wise you wonder if they’ll finish in the top half. Seriously tough division this year 

Five points off sixth and the same off the bottom four. The epitome of mid-table mediocrity which is disappointing. We need Mr Garner to start working his magic again - hopefully today is a start.

I think it shows how much of a gap  there is between the championship & league 1 Now . Most teams that go up struggle , as we did for a couple of seasons .

Wycombe are certainly taking their time to adjust.

That said, I did have a look at their match day thread, and one of them claimed one of their players has 'Championship standard instinct'.

Add that to the sprinklers and they are almost there.

@weeblecan’t believe you lost the ‘Windass Derby’ 

There are very few benefits of the current pandemic... but one I can think of for Hull fans is none of them will tonight be subjected to being cornered in the pub by a dribbling fewer pretending to be a all chummy because Hull City once beat us 1-0 in a game which the Gas could only dream of playing in (their favourite ever result). 

No doubt this would inevitably followed by "so you prefer us to them Gert teds right?"

So you thought you’d go on your vastly superior neighbours forum and have the piss ripped out of you.

No, if you read the post in question it looks like he came on here to have a snidey little dig at his fellow Rovers fan, Bert.

Not going places or building something special tonight then (although it could be argued The Theatre of Tents is special in its own way).

Is it..? 

Accrington, Lincoln, Plymouth,Doncaster (United), AFC Wimbledon, Fleetwood, 1 newly relegated side (Hull) and few others who failed to get promoted from that division last season. 

Are you sure you're not falling into their mindset of thinking teams are good because they have stadiums that used to house the attendances from when they weren't shite..?!

So I see that Keane Lewis-Potter scored the first goal for Hull today.

Perhaps he should sing this song for the blue few with his namesake band?

(If you don't know the original Keane song, there's a link here):

I dreamed I was drowning
In the river Frome
I dreamed I had nothing at all
Nothing like a home win

I dreamed I was drifting
Towards bottom four
I dreamed I had nothing at all
You could hear a dropped pin

Slipped away from your open hands
Into the goal
The only thing I could think of
Was the vain hope, of a foul on the keeper
    
You take the pieces of the draw that you crave
Cause you don't like the way games seem to be going
You cut them up and spread them out in your head
You're full of hope as you begin rearranging
Put it all back together
But any way you look at things
Looks like
The Rovers are losing

I dreamed I was watching
A much better team
Considered leaving when they scored their third
No quality in the final turd

We cling to hope of levelling, by
Winning a corner
I try to hold onto what we are
But the shot just goes over the bar

You take the pieces of the dreams that you have
Cause you don't like the way games seem to be going
You cut them up and spread them out in your head
You're full of hope as you begin rearranging
Put it all back together
But any way you look at things
Looks like
The Rovers are losing

I dreamed I had nothing at all
Nothing like a home win
I dreamed I had nothing at all
Not even a nil-nil

You take the pieces of the draw that you crave
Cause you don't like the way games seem to be going
You cut them up and spread them out in your head
You're full of hope as you begin rearranging
Put it all back together
But in the final reckoning
Looks like
The Rovers are losing

 Rovers have started to use the magnificent new training ground at Almondsbury and Mr Al-Quidi has just announced through his Instagram account (36 million devotees) that it is to be named “The Quarter”.

I understand this is because only a quarter of it will ever be finished.

Shouldn’t it be called ‘The Inferiority Complex’

Counting down to “The Gap” time of 20 years exactly at 16.45 today 28 October 

Sorry to be pedantic but Tony Thorpe scored the winner in the 70th minute, so on a real time table we'd have gone above them 20 odd minutes before

I was driving back from the in-laws in WSM last night so heard part of the commentary and wondered why the commentator felt he needed to say that the Thatchers "stand" was empty?
