    Fans of less successful clubs are more loyal to each other.

    I find there is more solidarity between fans of "crap" clubs. I work with a Exeter City season ticket holder, a Forest Green one and a couple of Bristol Rovers fans.

    FA cup

    The bbc were very patronising to Marine. "Some of the Marine players will just be happy to be refereed by Michael Oliver’ - WHAT?!? I think the bbc think non league teams put jumpers down for goalposts.

    Evans coming across as whiny again, blaming the ref and the facilities.

People will say ‘is that Steve moaning about a referee?’ Yes, I am, he was poor and...

    Arise Sir Jimmy

    Lost a few of the 11 England world cup winners from 1966. I believe there are four left now Geoff Hurst and Bobby Charlton who have knighthoods and George Cohen and Roger Hunt who do not. Sporting honours are sprinkled around like confetti sometimes with some sports getting lots and others...

    Gills legend "Les Riggs" has sadly passed away.

    Stamps - n/g

    I am in favour of one class of post only. Think it would be better than having to separate the two out, leave one lot behind even they are going to that address anyway and then having to deliver the second class post another time returning to the adress they have already been to!

    What was your favourite ever Boxing Day home match?

    I remember vividly the Boxing Day game v Plymouth in our promotion year 1995/96, I believe we were third and Plymouth were fourth going into that match but there was only one point between the whole top 4 so was a crucial match in promotion terms (Top 4 was PNE 38pts, Chester 38, Gills 37, Ply...

    Why n/g

    London started as a series of small towns Barnes, Southwark etc each of which grew bigger and merged into each other so as to become indistinguishable from each other. The old parts were City of London and Westminster. The population of london in shakespeare's time was around 350-400k. It...
