I have just been reliably informed that when the horse punchers were in the conference their away support was bigger than ours, as ours that year was terrible, someone give me a doctors number I think I need someone to be sectioned 

I have been quoted the same by Sags I know too. They are totally obsessed with their perceived away following and assume because they are the self confessed faithful and true that their away following has to be bigger than the gurt Teds without the need to check the facts.

I’ve been buying the Viz for years and nearly every month they do a spoof ‘Take a Break’ style gossip magazine article.

It always features some fictional, attention seeking bullshitter making outrageous claims about things they’ve got up to with celebrities in private or boasting about inside knowledge they’ve obtained by accident whilst unblocking Brad Pitt’s bog.

Henbury Gas and his computer shop is a bit like a real life version of that.

 

 

Fictional? How very dare you. Kylie won't be at all happy when she gets back tonight.

Up next;

Who put the **** into Scunthorpe?

Well I'm guessing that Dopey will put 11 of them out there on Saturday dressed in that stupid blue and white quartered clowns outfit.

Best City link I can find is that we sold them legendary horses arse Steve Torpey for what was at the time their record transfer fee of £175,000.

Up front Scunthorpe have ex Reading striker Simon Church and ex Yeovil top scorer Paddy Maddon, so they have goals in the team.

4-0 to the Iron?

Uber for Dopey?

Mind you, if you've got a home ground like Chernobyl you probably would prefer to go away to proper stadiums.

The year we got promoted as Champions from L1?

We averaged about 1400 away that season. Higher than they’ve ever averaged.

 

They had more than that locked out from every match.  Kent police had to implement Operation Stack (Google it if you don't know) when they played at Dover

Just had a quick browse of their forum. They are getting the wind up on all fronts. The comments from Hamer in the supposed email reply seem quite damming of employees and departed staff. It's getting uncomfortably hot at the Minimal. Shall we have a whip round?

Just thought I would bring this over from Malago's Attendances thread. This shows that we are taking almost double their numbers away this season.

I am sure the Gasheads will still argue the point though.

Genuine question. How far down the pyramid would they need to go to have the best facilities in the league?

Gateshead has a cracking ground and they're level six or seven so somewhere below that. Cherry Red Records Hellenic League would be my guess.

Melksham have just had a new £5m stadium built and are in the Western Premier, so at least a division below that.

Well, Melksham Town, who play in Level 9 of the pyramid opened a new all-singing all-dancing Stadium last season which is better than the Pisspoorial.

Incidentally, Doomed Darrell will get to see it for himself this weekend as he’s turning out for Melksham against a Man Utd legends XI.

Flapper Phillips and Gas donkeys from days of yore Haldane and Mehew also in the squad.

The bloke is an absolute belter on Twitter.

Went from declaring Leeds would win the league one week to demanding the manager be sacked a week later.

Didn’t we also have ‘don’t forget how many were in the home end and in the boxes’ when they were challenged about official numbers being at odds with theirs?

Just goes to show that it's not just the local press that failed to investigate the actual status of their owners, Garth Crooks suggesting that he could have bought "any club in the Premiership" is just laughable. I am sure that this forum had already identified that they were nowhere near that wealthy, but once again Wael seems happy to let the myth persist with his self deprecating reply.

To be fair to Wael, he did respond: 'Well, not any football club, but....'

OK. Wael's reply was, as you say correctly, self-deprecating, but he says these things in such a warm, lovely way that you can surely understand how and why he was carried by his adoring fans down the Gloucester Road.

You really should take the plunge and explore life outside the confines of the Memorial Stadium. Break the shackles of your brothers' enslavement.

They should at least manage to beat Sunderland`s away attendance at Grimsby for the whateveritscalled trophy on Tuesday. Estimates vary between three and seven away fans attending out of a crowd of 248.

Fair play to both clubs` fans for sticking two fingers up to the competition.

I've just read the methane sorters post about everyone around the country loving the gas. 

As I'm working in Swansea this week on a nhs project,  I got chatting to a Swans fan about football and he asked if we were rebuilding our stadium as we were doing really well in the Championship. I showed him the pics and he was well impressed and very positive about City. He then asked 'whatever happened to the other lot, did they go bust?' My reply was 'watch this space' to which he replied 'good,  they are just plain weird!'

He's just made a new friend! ;)

Wow the fact they can't even think of the word "lend" is really something. 

And they seem so sure than minority shareholders in positions of power in a bank can do as they wish, or have vast reserves of liquid cash rather than tied up in shares (see Mike Ashley's comment about struggling to invest extra money in Newcastle as good wealth is all tied up in SportsDirect shares).

And that's even if Hani is letting another penny go to that black hole of cash - which isn't the case if their forums are to be believed... 

(To be fair City were a black hole for cash too for many years - this year is the only one we might even break even due to the Man U game and high attendances, difference is our owner keeps getting richer and can liquidify cash easily)
