Jog On I had a quick pint in the Will Adams (plenty of other wombles in there but it's only a small place - interesting story behind the name of the place) and then another quick one in a place called The Napier Arms which was as "old man boozer" as you can get complete with urinal-cake smells wafting through the pub. Agree with you though of all the various places I've been supporting WFC and AFCW I think Gillingham as a place has to be fairly low on the list of places I'd ever want to live, or go.

We have to be careful with Mitch Pinnock, it's a big step up from part time to full time. He is a quality player but we don't want him burning out.

Jog On - I think you can have a "temporary" stand up for as long as you like, assuming it passes all the safety checks

Isn't the difference between that and a "permanent" stand just the period between each safety check?
Never been to Gillingham before, bloody hell it's a depressing area around there. We had a couple of pints in a pub called Fleur De Lis (supposedly an away support venue) and they put "remember you're a womble" on the jukebox after we sat down lol. Not the classiest joint I've drank in, where did others go for a beer pre-match?

and that Brian Moore Stand, isn't there a time limit on how long a temporary construction like that can be in place?
Rasp - yes. Built as a temporary stand 15 years ago.

Though the view from it isn't *that* bad
Is the away stand at Gillingham still that scaffolding that sways when someone coughs?

Nice write up REPD! Only thing is I have a picture of shit on white sheets in my head now and not a nice thought. Agree that Pinnock is one of our better players but think this year we are lucky in midfield and spoilt for choice if Soares and Trots are on form as you then have Pinnock, Wordsworth, Waggy, Barcham, Hartigan who are also up for it. Only thing is we can only play 4 of them so good to be able to mix and match. I like Pinnock as he works and produces so much.

Enjoy
Kyle... Its known as work and army friends who come along to a few of our games who support other teams as they live in the south but come from up north etc.

Diddy is there a club in the lower league that you don't have a mate supporting? How do you find them? A shit football team dating app?

'I just don't understand why my Churchillian speech wasn't universally revered. I mean, I posted it twice ffs'
One thing that may have changed and turned arounf the fortunes of Ttotter AND Soares is a change to how they train with us as opposed to other clubs? Im sure Ardely has said a few times that we minimise minor injuries (pulled muscles, factigue etc). Its meant that guys like Akinfenwa become available for 46 games and 90 mins as opposed to 20 games per season. I was having a look at Soares and tortter on Wikipendia and trotter in particular seems to have not really ever had 40+ games per season in a while. I'm just putting out the idea that the way the team trains could be having an improved impact on these guys at long last.

Maybe the problem was the philosophy as much as the group, WD. I can imagine that it was no more fun playing Ardleyball 2017 than watching it.

No, Diddy. That would suggest some intelligence ;-)

Kentish... Do you not ever think that maybe you too are getting played? ;-)

I shake my head and laugh sometimes. Lord forgive me for they don't know what I do ;-)
Soares is playing well because we have better players this season. Trotter has come back fitter and looks sharp.

KENTISH.... Don't get too much of a hard on as its only a few games into the season and Soares will be judged on all the season but looking better then last season. ;-)

Let the games begin!
Soares and Trotter are experienced professionals, they have not improved their technique nor ability during the close season. IMO they have been persuaded to buy in to the manager's new philosophy. This hints at something badly wrong within the squad last season, something that hopefully has been put right.

Initial signs are encouraging in my view.
What an amazing transformation by Tom Soares. It’s as if he’d played in the Premier League or something...

And a Londoner signed from Bury. WTF?!!
Good morning all. Personally I regard KD and kyle as the equivalent of Guestbook chuggers, deliberately posting obtuse views to 'encourage' GB contributions.

Lurker.... If you lack all those tributes then you are a poor player and that's what Soares performances were like. Funny enough a Bury mate of mine couldn't believe how poor he was for us as he was their main player. Maybe he has settled down now and its his time to shine for us. He is a powerful figure and should be dominating midfields.
