Today is like the Queens actual birthday (and it is today)  Everyone knows they're down, but Saturday is the official day.

Will there be a trooping of the colours (red) and a FIFTEEN gun salute ?:fingerscrossed:

No guns. Just fists. And horses.

Barton words about "double figures" players chewing the baccy. What does that mean?

Sorry if I've missed it explained but off to work soon.

Anyone got an inkling as to what "double figures" means in his statement? 

Those that have put on a lot of weight during lock down? 

Those with an IQ higher than 9?

Those can can count to ten on the fingers of one hand? 

Those that can actually count to ten? 

What does it mean?

By my maths haven’t we now guaranteed ourselves another 800 odd days above them?

I know how much you’ve been enjoying the last couple of weeks, Fordy, but you might be getting a bit carried away there!

We could be in the same league in August next year. Our alphabetic superiority might buy us an extra 7 days. But not 800😁

On balance though, the chances of that happening must be less than those of us starting 22-23 four divisions apart 🤞🤞

My god, he questions how some of their players even made it professional. Incredible.

 

Very harsh words aired publically. But ultimately is he wrong with those opinions? 

Basically he is saying that some of the players are lucky to be paid for playing football. I can’t disagree with that personally.

Here are some highlights from the Bristol Post piece last July looking forward to the current season for The Gas. They are the gift that keeps on giving - every comment is a gem!:  

"Gasheads have been steadily more impressed with Rovers' summer business so far, with the new signings, a new training ground and Wael Al Qadi's commitment to the club all building hopes of a positive season ahead. See how Bristol Rovers fans reacted below:"

Alfie Rendall: Announce promotion.

Charlie: Very good squad being built.

James: EIEIEIO up the football league we go.

Daniel Sheppard: Going to be boring winning every game this season. ... Real intent this year.

Jay Bear Jones: So three signing in three days all quality players, what has happened to rag bag Rovers?

Caz: Promotion 2021, scream it at the top of your lungs baby.

Kevin Ward:  Blimey, Will next season be the one we start going places?

Remind me what time is "having a laugh" on radio Bristol tomorrow? Can't say I've ever listened but might well do with a nice bottle of RED!

Be great if someone could phone in and start by saying "What can I say Geoff? I've had three divorces"

I read OTIB every day. I read the latest on this thread every day. I read it at around 5:30pm yesterday evening then went out. Of course, I kept abreast of the scores and was well aware of the perfect storm swirling over the swamp. At around midnight, I looked at OTIB to see 15 unread pages on the newly renamed thread and it was past 1:30am before I reached the end. 

I'd like to thank each one of you utter bastards for keeping me awake so late and providing me with so many laughs!

Well we all know you’re a busy man Hucker :yes:

At least the last crayon chewing cretin has actually got it right - Salford, Barrow & Harrogate.

In place of ClapfortheNHS tonight I suggest ClapforgAss on our doorsteps. Accompanied by singing that splendid New Order song, ‘Two, Twooo Divisions Apart. Again’. 
#Clap4gAss

Joy Division, FFS
