Nope, they can't even claim to be unique there; it happened again a few years later.

I think AFC Wimbledon were the failures that time but can't find it on a quick search.

Correct, just found it.

2002/03

Preliminary round

A preliminary round was necessary to reduce the number of teams by one, because of the extra UEFA Cup place awarded to newly relegated Ipswich Town through the Fair Play league.

Tie no Home team Score Away team Date
1 Bristol Rovers 0–2 Boston United 20 August 2002

2011/12

Preliminary round

Times up to and including the fourth round are BST (UTC+1). Times from the quarter-finals onwards are GMT (UTC±0).

Due to newly relegated (and League Cup title holders) Birmingham City having a bye to the third round following qualification to the Europa League and the extra Europa League berth awarded to Fulham through the Fair Play league, newly promoted AFC Wimbledon and Crawley Town played each other in a preliminary round. The draw for the round took place on 13 June with Crawley Town at home. This was the first need for a Preliminary Round since the 2002–03 season.

29 July 2011 Crawley Town (4) 3–2 AFC Wimbledon (4) Broadfield Stadium, Crawley
19:45 Akpan Goal 38'
Torres Goal 53'
Tubbs Goal 64'
Report L. Moore Goal 26'
Midson Goal 46'
Attendance: 3,204
Referee: Darren Deadman (Cambridgeshire)

Now on page 1100 and the late accounts filing Sags continue to hemorrhage money at a rate of, how much per week now and the debt against the stadium has reached its limit.

At least the Fruit Market is ripe for developement, or it will be in 2 years.  Personally I think it will take a lot more than that to ripen if it ever does.

Meanwhile, some mysterious, probably non-existent individuals are going to stump up somewhere in the region of 60 million pounds for this white elephant to house a dwindling 8,000 loyal and blue fanbase.

And the incestuous sods are still lapping it up gleefully.

Even Twentypence is too embarrassed to admit that he might prefer the other team in Bristol 😀

Talk of them signing Adelekun? Not heard anything myself. Wouldn’t mind it aslong as he is as good as Akinde was for them. Laughable how one Sag mentions about them helping one of ours develop 😂😂 highly unlikely. Also I’d like to point out when Wally said that there will be no more transfer dealings between us both, can’t move the goalposts when it suits you, if it was down to me I’d tell them to piss right off.

There are some within the camp too. There is a lad who I have heard about through friends of friends called Zac Ford. He plays for their U18's but is dyed in the wool City. I don't do Twitter, but I was shown his tweets, almost all about City, one begging for a striker just before the deadline, another sad face regarding Marlon leaving, etc. Even their own players prefer us.

Was there any need to give his name out?

I think slagchat user "stuartcampbell" (grimmest name) is suggesting that there's been rumours of them wanting to sign one of our U23 boys on loan, and he simply recommended Adelekun. If the rumour of them wanting to sign one of ours is true, I'd probably think it'd be Adelekun. Was very successful at Scunthorpe before joining us. They desperately need a winger. I think he needs a loan to League One if there's ever any chance of him breaking into the first team. Doesn't seem resoundingly unrealistic. Doubt it thought because of Wally's comments, but I think it's difficult. Nowadays rival clubs don't really seem to hate each other anywhere near as much as rival fans do. Some of our current and ex-players are great mates with current and ex-Rovers players (e.g Reid and Harrison, or a lot of our players commenting on Chris Lines' post confirming he was leaving the sags last season). So whilst we dream of the sags crawling to us and begging us to sign a player, we won't turn it down if the deal makes sense just because it's them, which is something I and almost everyone on this forum would say we definitely would.

 

A sidenote, would you really want him to fail if he signed for them on loan? I can understand permanent, but he's still OUR player even if he's on loan to them. And I'd wish for him to do well for them, after all then we could claim yet again to have stolen their best player...

The key though is Wael of Fortune's stupid kneejerk comment after the Taylor signing. It's obvious now that LJ and Clarke must have had a reasonable relationship and it has continued at Walsall. They probably could have had a couple of youngsters on loan each season if they hadn't thrown their toys out of the pram and Wael hadn't pandered to the mob

I think most rovers fans with any sense will openly admit we are absolutely light years ahead in every department on and off the pitch . You only have to look at what we have spent this summer to see the gap between the 2 clubs ,and to be totally honest I can’t see the gap getting any closer in near future 

I had to stop reading after that bit.

He has scrapped a stadium down the road after millions already being spent on it, now surely he couldn't back a stadium literally up the road could he?? A Rovers fan himself so surely a conflict of interest. Some cynics would say he knew this was in the pipeline so scrapped the Temple Meads stadium to help his own football club out....

Wouldn’t wish him to fail no but imo apart from playing every week I see no other reason for him to go there, he’d be joining a shit team fighting relegation all season, when he could pretty much have the choice of pretty much the whole of L1.

Exactly - I wouldn't let him go there at all. Plenty of teams he could go on loan to, so why would anyone want to give them any help whatsoever?
