    Which team do you dislike but don't know why?

    I understand shotshy's reasons but that's half the league! Middlesbrough

    Prince Andrew, the Royals and the media

    He couldn't live outside the public glare if he wanted to and in the language of the playground, they started it. It's absurd to apply any of this to the vast and rambling royal family anyway because they are a stage managed soap opera. Try thinking of all the utterly ridiculous and cringeworthy...

    Prince Andrew, the Royals and the media

    It's a knife edge between two imperfects and I take your point. This particular drip needs to get over his own weakness and make up with his brother.

    They all do good work and drips can be decent people but a drip he is.

    31st Anniversary

    Passed my HOTSM to the next generation and my memory is erratic though sometimes good on long ago. My first reference is now this: http://gillinghamfcscrapbook.co.uk/ It tells me that on April 1st 1967 we beat Watford 4-1 in front of 5969 spectators with Riddick, Brown, Gibbs and Crickmore...

    Scally and Evans

    ST sales are a looming problem for us and others and chairmen/women must be anxious at how to pitch and how they will go. If Scally was to get rid of Evans (sure he won't) he'd have a major problem. Any appointment would need to meet expectations (probably unrealistic) or risk paltry ST numbers...

    William is a proper drip, that's the problem with heredity.

    Prince Andrew, the Royals and the media

    Absolutely no suggestion from me about your motives Lancs and I certainly wasn't referencing you in my irritation. We can all take to or against people without having to justify it to anyone else. I have as near to no opinion on MM asd is possible but the institution has become increasingly...

    Prince Andrew, the Royals and the media

    Now I Lancs come from it at an entirely different angle. I'm a republican by inclination but just stopped taking any notice of the royals a good while ago. I have never had an issue with the present incumbent, who has carried out her side of the bargain diligently. The hangers on, minors and...

    31st Anniversary

    Jepson may well have been a bully but not many would have crossed him. He used to come up regularly when people discussed the hardest men in football. The football was dreadful and you absolutely knew that as soon as the opposition scored first our interest in the game was over. Ternent not only...

    I think thaat might have been the previous season. Alec had already left.

    31st Anniversary

    I followed results from Longfield for several years before actually watching a game, no one I knew supported Gillingham. My first game was 1st April (I kid you not) 1967 v Watford, who were pretty good then. Of course we played brilliantly, trounced them 4-1, I found the shed run by Mark Agate...

    The Official Francis FC Match Thread (sponsored by Winkelman Removals "for all your relocation needs")

    Early in the first half I don't think many of us would have seen anything for us in that game. They passed the ball about efficiently, appeared to be playing within themselves and scored an early goal. I have never seen a Gills team have so little involvement in the first 15 minutes. It was...

    ‘Gillingham’s Biggest Earners Revealed’

    A guess on how this piece was created, and presumably the statements of other clubs too. First take last season's overall wage bill and add say 2-3% for inflation. Next divide by number of players in squad for average. Finally make a series of calculated guesses on breakdown of salaries, more...

    ‘Gillingham’s Biggest Earners Revealed’

    This is, to use a term used in another thread, utter jank. Click the link within the link, which refers to where the info originated. First sentence Gillingham's top earner on £4K a week is Zech Medley. I think not. Scally's the top earner anyway
