I was just pointing out that everybody is quick to assume that they know everything about a situation, when they weren't there.  With regards to her lifestyle being at risk, I doubt that, I think JB has been shrewd with the money he's earned, and a good lawyer would probably get her 60%.  They've been together for a long time, and I would imagine that it might well be a tempestuous relationship at times, especially with alcohol in the mix.  I guess she does what she thinks is best for herself and the family.

Appreciate what you’re saying but I was only stating what is out in the Public Domain.

When i said ‘lifestyle’ I was more referring to their whole family life as opposed to wealth...just couldn’t think how to word it.

Yes, and in the most tragic of circumstances too.  Still, the Swindon fan thinks it's quite acceptable to label him as a "thug".

Absolutely for his thuggery but condolences to him and his family for his tragic loss

He certainly had a moment of madness in that game, but - from what I saw- it was pretty much handbags and far, far from the worst thing I have seen on a football field.

As for his state of mind at the time, who knows? Unfortunately, I can tell you from experience that losing a child can really - unsurprisingly- **** with your head, and it becomes very easy to lash out- both physically and metaphorically - at times you normally wouldn't. I don't think for one second, that Darrell Clarke is a thug.

Fair point you make and as stated above he may be better off away from the side of the pitch when they play at Wembley incase things don't go for Port Vale

It's a difficult one, he had been back at work in a backround capacity for a few weeks, and maybe he felt that he should be more involved for the final push.  I know that when I lost my Dad, I thought that getting back into the work environment quickly was the best thing to do, then all the emotions came to the surface about 6 weeks later, and floored me. 

I get that. I lost my Mum pre 1st lockdown. She had cancer and it wasn't unexpected. I was fine, went back to work, attended the funeral and weeks later....I went to phone her. It hit me at that point!!

We all grieve for loved ones in different ways. Time is a great healer but one never forgets. It's just further away. The older I get, the more I miss Dad and Mum. I've been happily married again for twenty years after first wife died, yet still think about her most days.

After such a personal tragedy he deserves all our sympathy, it would be a great and humane gesture if his red card was overturned and he was allowed to lead his team out at Wembley

If we had made it approx 35,000 but that would have been actual fans and not a fictitious number. 

No problem not making it more pi**sd off that one of your ex managers allegedly headbutted our captain but shouldn't really be surprised as you like employing thugs.

Hahahaha it is most definitely is a made up number. 
 

As everyone on here knows I am 110% against Barton because of his actions but one thing I will not have is a Swindon fan going on about DC being a thug?!??!! Anyone who watched it saw there was no headbutt and the “allegedly” in your sentence confirms that even you know it yourself. As mentioned already DC has gone through something that fortunately most of us will never have to. It’s out of character for him but don’t go creating a scenario to suit your own agenda because your team weren’t good enough over 46 games and then an extra two legs to get promoted. 
 

Every week you come on here and sound more and more like your own description of a Rovers fan. Boasting about attendances and away followings. Congratulations on having a higher home gate than us for the first time in years. Congratulations on yet again not having a higher away following despite the numerous weeks on here I read you claiming you were taking 3500 everywhere you were going. 
 

Maybe if Garner spent more time looking at how he set you lot up in that second leg as opposed to blaming an “unwatered pitch” you’d have been in the final.

Right, that’s it, no more love-ins!

They’ll be booking a weekend in Nottingham instead for a little trip to Derby where they can reminisce about their massive following when Nathan Ellington wowed the Derby fans and Derby adopted Rovers as their second club.

The initials of Sunderland's sponsor is....G A S

Does that explain why gasheads reckon their Sunderland fans 2nd favourite team?

After Rovers glorious achievement of coming third in League two Mr Al-Quidi Jnr is now writing an autobiography.

The working title is “Mein Camp”.

Doesn't matter if you finish 1st, 3rd or go up via the play-offs - all those teams will start off as equals in League One next season.

No they won't.

Not every side in the 3rd division can claim to be the divisions favourite second club.

I bet you have the same opinion for the 89/90 season then?

I would re phrase that, you might start level, but there are a few Clubs there you ain't equal to :thumbsup:

No need the re-phrase what I said, the discussion was about the teams which have been promoted - I would say that there are a few clubs in League One which none of the new boys are equal to.

Based on that logic, Leeds will start off as equals to Manchester City in the Premier League next season. Gas logic at its best.

You need to re-read my post before trying to be clever - I referred to the clubs who finished 1st, 2nd, 3rd, plus the play-off winners in League Two.  I don't think that there will be a great deal to separate their prospects when they start life back in League One.  For some reason you are referencing the Premiership champions and a team who avoided relegation on the final day - there is no similarity to what I was talking about.

Yes - all the promoted clubs had the same starting point when the 1990/91 season started. 

Obviously they all start at the same point, I was referring to the bit just prior to that point. You're probably in the minority of your supporter base with that then, as the shouting, chest thumping and bluster from your lot over the ensuing years regarding those events, has been over the top. I suppose it's about not having much to shout about.
