Bristol Rovers charging away fans £30 a ticket for their shit heap.
I know Barton is a criminal but you can add extortion to that list of offences too.

I know that holidays in the UK have become expensive, but I didn't think camping cost so much these days

At least refs will be clamping down more this season, apparently.

For about ten games and then go back to normal.....like always.

Port Vale at home ref (in the league not the play offs) may have been the most clueless ref I've ever seen to these sorts of tactics. Think half the team had to redo their laces at some point and the cunt was oblivious. Absolute muppet.

they could start by booking players that run 20 years to stand in front of the ball when the opposition gets a free kick.

If it's done consistently then i'm all for it. I'm sure teams will find sneakier ways to use 'gamesmanship' to see out games. As Batch said, the blocking of quick free kicks should be punished harder. The number of times Reed/Payne/Williams would be fouled and then ready to take a quick free kick only to see an opponent get in the way was countless last season. It was very rarely punished. In theory it should benefit teams like us that try and play football and punish 'cloggers' that are just out to park the bus and stop us playing. Hopefully giving us more entertaining games rather than teams wasting time from the 60th minute to see out a 0-1/0-0 scoreline at the CG.

It's the Wagmi crowd that bought/Invested in Crawley over the summer. I really really don't get it and I'm not sure yanks do either. The proper Crawley fans must be absolutely cringing about it.

Not sure whether to put this in the "things that made you smile" thread because it's definitely funny but...

Southend have a new sponsor for their West Stand, which is all good and normal except the name of the local estate agent sponsor is... not an ideal fit for this particularly stand.

Any publicity is, I suppose, good publicity...
