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

    ...and you have to virtually walk through someones bathroom to get in the away end, or at least you did mid '90s. Once in the I think the view was also impaired by the low seating - and Jim Stannard's large frame

    31st Anniversary

    My debut was in the same season 89-90. F.A cup versus Welling, shite game, but something made me want to back, which I did later in the season again Peterborough, slightly less shite, but I was still awaiting my first goal,I eventually saw it towards the end of that season against Halifax. The...

    Gillingham

    Apparently only the Kent part takes its name from our fine county, at least according to Wiki. The Chatham part is named after the Earl of Chatham. It sports a naval dockyard and in the 19th century hosted the Convention of Colored Men!

    Coronavirus vaccine

    You're right, all the vaccines are incredibly effective at stopping serious illness and even better at preventing death. The degree to which they prevent transmission is open to some debate. It's being reported they lower the chances of passing it on about 70% as this amount of people don't...

    Glen Roeder

    Wasn't this also the season both Butler and Breen scored own goals in the away game at Barnet? One of them would've made any striker worth his salt proud!

    Glen Roeder

    I never really took to Glen Roader, and after that diabolical 92-93 season was surprised he got poached by Watford - though he later managed even higher, so clearly had something about him. The peak of his playing career was before my time, I've only seen Youtube clips of his time at QPR and...

    England Cricket

    Tunbridge ground is truly beautiful when it's in full bloom and bathed in sunshine. I love the main Canterbury ground as well - even if its appeal has been slightly diminished by the building of the new flats

    Coronavirus vaccine

    I would say we are sorted by the time restrictions are eased to a point where we are able to live relatively normally again, whilst accepting foreign travel will still be restricted. That we're in a position where almost everyone can return to work. I assume all the over 50 years will have to be...

    Coronavirus vaccine

    I want us to get ourselves sorted first - then we should offer as much assistance as we are capable of to the rest of the world. Should that include EU - possibly. It could certainly be seen as an olive branch after the harsh words exchanged during brexit. Problem is every dose we send there...

    Joe Walsh

    Maybe we'll get first dibs on loaning Joe back as part of the deal

    Lincoln at Home

    Think you're right Buddha, we signed Smith on loan (from Spurs) initially if I remember correctly, before making it permanent a few weeks later. He was the only player we had from that era to thrive under Pulis a few years later. Think we were 3-1 down at one point. Alan Walker may have got...

    Lincoln at Home

    That were a great game, and the first time I watched Gills on t.v. I've got a feeling it was a 3-3 draw, with Neil Smith getting a goal for us. We lost the replay

    Coronavirus vaccine

    Buddha - "I'm not anti-vaccine, I just want it explained to me why it is necessary for everybody to have it. I simply don't understand why giving it to the elderly, the vulnerable and the health workers isn't sufficient. It's not too difficult a question and I jsut want someone to give me an...

    Coronavirus vaccine

    I'm no fan of Tony Blair to put it mildly, but since spring I've felt he's had a good grasp of the situation, and more importantly an idea of how to suppress the virus until we could ultimately distribute the hoped for vaccine. Here's his ideas for quickening the pace of the vaccine roll-out...

    Coronavirus vaccine

    I hope I'm wrong, but I've got a feeling very little has been done to prepare for the roll-out. And we are perhaps about to find out. I contacted St Johns about 6 weeks ago to see if I could help(I'm furloughed), but they advised to check the website in January as they had little information...

    Coronavirus vaccine

    No one knows exactly how long immunity will last, and the length of time will differ for all of us but I've heard it's likely to be about 3 years from vaccines.

    Coronavirus vaccine

    True, not only that, but although the Oxford vaccine didn't prevent infection in all cases, none of the participants of the trial after a single dose developed serious symptoms - none were hospitalized
