    Potential player departures - Are we really that bothered?

    I seem to be hearing more doom and gloom about the players that might be off in the summer. Got to be honest I really dont think I am that bothered as to who goes. There are a few players that are obviously better than others but personally I think these are in the main average L2 players. Most...

Or, rather, Wing Commander Trevor Kettle...

    Goals that meant the most!

    Like virtually every other supporter since Wednesday I haven't come back down to earth yet and was thinking that regardless of Reeves status as a loan player he will always go down in history as the player that ultimately scored the goal that took us to wembley.

  14. Question Gillingham Crowd

    Understand from Gills Forum that they have sold 900 tickets for the New years game at Roots Hall. What do we think the crowd will be? Lets fill the Hall with massive Blues support and get the Blues back to winnnig ways. My guess 8500 UTB
