This thread has some double-top #GasLogic.

If you were buying a one-of-a-kind bit of art, how many examples of this work would you expect to see. The clue 'one of a kind'...

Signed by the man himself with, wait for it, a silver pen!

Put me down for twenty!

Sorry. It's a one or a kind, and there are only 80 left, so your request can't be fulfilled.

20 indeed. It's a one of a kind. Get that. One. Of. A. Kind.

I could sell you 47 of them, mind.

Silver pen. 

Wonder what colour the ink in the pen was.

I`m surprised they don`t do a Dean Windass one.

That's terrible for such a big club😀 They've got Hartlepool away next Saturday wonder if they will beat the 293 that travelled to Barrow!

Ooh, I'm staying near Hartlepool next weekend. Wonder if I should become an honorary Monkey Hanger for the day!

Come on lad, it doesn’t say “one of a kind”.

 

“We’ve got 100 of these one off Rickie Lambert pieces”

 

Meaning it’s a one time run of 100 pieces. Once they’re gone, they’re gone. It’s for charity. Give it a rest.

What does the seventeen in your username mean?

We left it late and had 67% possession and took over a 1000 today 

Was talking to a Swindon fan at Gloucester city last week, a mate of Gerrys, he said there is a real feel good factor at Swindon since that weasel Power left. Away support is up and fans are enjoying their football again.

It's like the club has been reborn again since Clem took over and the feel good factor Is definitely back.

We're never going to have your support home or away but over a thousand yesterday at Stevenage, nine hundred at Scunthorpe and eight hundred at Salford is pretty good going considering none of them were local.

Never ceases to amaze me some of the support that clubs get in L1 & L2 for away games......fair play on those 3 away turn outs!

That's why I was surprised Rovers took less than 300 to Barrow considering most of their loyal bunch wouldn't have been there before

Didn't surprise me....they big up their "massive away support" but we all know its just another fantasy in their tiny minds. "bang average away support" is a better description.

they did take 3000 to barrow, unfortunately, when they got there, all they found was a derelict hospital

I would say thats fantastic away support seeing as you just got relegated as is the home support. Been quite surprised myself but then you have a decent catchment area. Are you looking to relocate too or refurb your stadium?

We tried to relocate 20 years ago up by junction 16 but at the last hurdle the council opposed as they found great crested newts on the land. A couple of years later the young announced they were building a couple of thousand homes!! All sites in and around Swindon have been developed so I can't see that there's anywhere to build a new stadium as Junction 15 has the GWH hospital plus new houses and all along the A419 is built up or allocated for another 8000 homes.

There are plans to redevelop the County ground with the new owner once he's sorted out Powers mess but it won't happen overnight. Ideally it would be great to turn the stadium around 90 degrees but the cricket ground is the problem as the pavilion has heritage protection so we may have been to build a new Townend and redevelop the Stratton bank and put a roof on it.

You could start off by just putting a new light bulb in the away end toilet.

There always seems to be a lot of potential brownfield area near the "back route" into the Outlet Centre, I would have thought it would be possible to find something there? If you're council is anything like BCC, they will be looking at the County Ground as a great spot for development. Do you own it these days?
