  • The Gasroom would not be the same without you, @micra - or @Malone for that matter.
  • If the Gasroom is an army barracks, @micra is the well respected sergeant who takes you to one side to explain that it pains him to say it, but your Ps and Qs are not minded quite properly, and, to quote a country song, "I know you've been using a c…
  • I for one usually really enjoy reading anything @DevC posts. They are always well articulated, whether one agrees with every post or not.
  • Well played all, well played.
  • It is always a bit strange to see a perfectly innocuous post with a thumbs down. ( Now I am paranoid someone is going to dislike that innocuous statement...)
  • Ah, this is my kind of site, thanks @LX1!

  • Silkman is a dictionary definition as "one who sells silks", whereas I cannot find one for Chairboy other than fan of Wycombe Wanderers...though I am sure it can feel like a chore at times!

  • @micra - I remembered them having issues back in the 1990s, but I always get them muddled with Aldershot, and also a little muddled as to whether the new club kept the history of the old one (Darlington have this effect too).
  • @micra - per the wonders of Wikipedia, "Maidstone United Football Club is a professional English football club based in Maidstone, Kent. They currently compete in the National League, the fifth tier of English football. The current club filled the v…

  • @Wendoverman said: sad though the point deductions may be...a small club running on empty who failed to sign Dave Tarpey yet again might feel slightly more optimistic about another league one survival campaign. If (God Forbid) both clubs failed t…
  • Thanks @Richard_Cheese - really inspiring stuff.
  • That's the thing - things are not static with football, but always moving in a certain direction, and reading the tea leaves does not take too much insight as to where it is all headed. Though we are poor, it once again shows the prudence of that…
  • I saw this on Twitter, and a great article indeed! It sounds like we need not just to grimly survive, but to innovate. Tranmere certainly provide a little hope at the end of the article.
  • It is set to be a weird League 1 season - Bolton and Bury in severe difficulties, and Coventry likely to groundshare with Birmingham.
  • Another silly nugget: Here is the Premier League table for this season, but if the clubs all kept their original names: 1 - St. Mark's (West Gorton) 2 – Liverpool 3 – Chelsea 4 – Hotspur 5 – Dial Square 6 – Newton Heath LYR 7 – St Luke’s …

  • Spot on! Bristol City, Swindon and Cheltenham form the West Country Songbird Gang.

  • As I am off away from my desk, here are the remaining answers: Silkmen - Macclesfield Secondary name: Colliers, Barnsley Changed name: Dockers to Lions, Millwall Another bonus question: which three league teams share a non-colour nickname? F…

  • Well done @LX1 - 1 + 2 remaining. @DevC - it seems on both sides of the pond, complete hysterical division over everything is the norm now. Those poor royals would be torn asunder.

  • Potters leaves it as 3 + 2 needed. @eric_plant - I think Bury are actually The Undertakers, and Leeds are the Dogwalkers.

  • Good shout @DevC, though I did not include it as a job. @LX1 - Gunners and Shrimpers were on the list, but not Villains. 4 + 2 needed still.

  • @bookertease - it really has been quite the fall - Luton and Oxford also both won the League Cup in the 1980s, back when everyone played their first teams all the way through (if I remember correctly). That makes it even more notable.
  • We are at 7 +1, so another 6 + 2 needed.

  • @Chris - no Rovers or Rangers, correct.

  • Bonus bonus points for @mooneyman as that was not even the club I was thinking of! That makes 16 total (13 + 3).

  • Luton and Oxford?
  • I would guess Barnet and Kidderminster for starters.
  • Bournemouth could be a possibility too.
  • Wolves or Wigan?
  • It's pretty poor to get that wrong. I guess they figure that deigning to show anything about the lower leagues is charitable enough, without needing to get facts straight...
