Home to the mighty Carlisle next Saturday. Any crowd predictions? Sub 6k with about twenty from Cumbria?

Why would Carlisle only bring around 20

When their fan have a great opportunity to visit the world famous Memorial Ground!!!

and watch their team play against the Blue and white quarters What a honour for them

My bad. I`d forgotten it`s their Cup Final too.

How many did they bring to the Millennium Stadium for their previous cup final? Surely it should be close to that figure?

That's a good wage for league Two, I think the average down there is 900 quid a week

Yes, you are right. 

Just looked it up and average league 2 wage is a grand a week. 

Not that much of a handicap to be restricted to £1200 a week max then.

From the comments on their BBC match report. I really, really, hope this is satire because if it is it’s genius. 😂😂😂

Quick return to the championship...? 

Since when has 20 years been quick..?! 

Especially when absolutely nowhere near achieving it..!

Gas_Harry_15's mockumentary is the funniest thing I've watched in ages and his stream of consciousness commentary a thing of genius. 

My personal favourite wasn't the constant stream of, "Sh*t!" every time The Gas were defending (sic), rather: "...that was never a fu*kin penalty........I'd 'ave to look at it again as I didn't see it....."

Fair comment I assumed the likes of Anthony Grant, Jack Payne, Ben Gladwin & Johnny Williams would be on more.

I know the Police quite rightly are coming in for some criticism of late but credit where credit's due.

I see many Fewers are complaining that yesterday they were kettled in their own ground by the Old Bill long after the final whistle so as to allow jubilant Swindon fans an expedite exit. They complain they were forced to wait and watch for half an hour or more whilst being taunted at for yet another abject performance.

Whoever the matchday commander was, take a bow......

Exactly! How is 20 years ‘swift’?

Don’t ask the Gas though because it’s closer to THIRTY years since they were last in the second tier.

Edit: looks like someone else has already pointed that out 🤣

Haha they are absolutely deluded. League 2 is undoubtedly their level nowadays, untill they get the facilities and infrastructure to suggest otherwise literally everything about that stinking embarrassment of a club is League 2 at BEST.

Isn't that the year that Swindle were immediately relegated 2 divisions for cheating? I am surprised the Gas haven't started a retrospective legal case to reverse their relegation.

Glorious.

Such is the level of unhappiness amongst the Fewers now, they have started to talk about boycotts and protests.

https://gasheads.org/thread/10053/waels-latest-delusion?page=1

Wonder if this will be as successful as their gold and black (or whatever it was) campaign that saw 3 supporters wearing a different coloured scarf, or their Mickey Mouse Cup boycott that still sees fans turn up.

They really are the least organised shower of supporters I think the football league have seen.

Surprised they don't carry a coffin down Gloucester Road to show Wally what's what. The clowns.

Thinking about it, they did once organise a really successful boycott and made the national press with it. Sadly for them, that was their open top bus parade when they finished somewhere that wasn't top of non league.

The gift.

They do make me laugh with their boycott nonsense.

 

Them saying that refuse to go to their home games is like me stating that I'd refuse to make Rachel Riley a full English after I've spent the night with her. 

 

Actually, I suppose there is half a chance that I might one day spend the night with Rachel Riley - so it's not a great analogy..!

Apparently their supposedly huge fan base is already boycotting games 😄
