    Tickets for Bristol Rovers

    Oxford was my first game this season and as a season ticket holder until last season I feel deeply ashamed at this! But on two occasions over the last couple of weeks I've tried to buy tickets for the Bristol Rovers game on 26 November, only to be told by staff at the ticket office that they are...

    Splash some cash at the club today

    With apologies to the seaso's who have already paid over the odds to watch League two football out of their intense loyalty to the club, may I encourage all to dig deep into their pockets today and pay the inflated prices for burgers, coffees etc. If this 'experiment' with reduced admission...

    Club to experiment with free admission ?

    With attendances starting to dwindle, I understand that the Club is to look at possible ways to entice the so called 'marginal supporters' who might otherwise be tempted by the lure of neighbouring clubs such as Canvey , Chelmsford and even Braintree Town, to visit Roots Hall. It is not thought...
  4. I-Phone update

    All, Bit of a warning: Just updated the missus' I-phone which was working perfectly fine before this update. However once installed, the "Insert SIM" error message came up. Tried my SIM (not 3G) in her phone and it's fine. I've no idea how a software update ****s up hardware, but there's no...

    Broadband advice

    Guys Finally, just 9 days left until I can say my divorce is completely over. Unfortunately, in a last bit of spite, as himself is moving out of the family home, he has contacted all the utility companies and suppliers to cancel all the accounts payable by direct debit under his bank account...

    Plane Crazy!

    After every flight, UPS pilots fill out a form, called a 'gripe sheet,' which tells mechanics about problems with the aircraft. The mechanics correct the problems, document their repairs on the form, and then pilots review the gripe sheets before the next flight. Never let it be said that...

  9. What's with the beer and the scoreboard?

    Now, I know it was the first game of the season and all that, but...... I've seen comments on here that the Shrimpers Bar only had bottled beer, and that it was warm bottled beer at that. Same went for the West as well except that the more astute of you would have noticed that it was also...

    FAO all Ron Martin believers, apologists, apathists: why I shall be voting option 5..

    Posters on this forum such as mcnasty & pboreham have questioned what a protest against ron will achieve & questioned the commitment of those participating, whilst also taking enjoyment from lampooning poor jack in the process. I don't claim to have the right...

    FM2010 (iPhone) Review

    When I was young I used to dream, not of a career in professional football, or of great riches or even of a date with Kim Wilde. Nay, those were the dreams of weaker folk. I dreamed of a portable 'Tracksuit Manager', that mid 1980s Spectrum classic. I dreamed of whiling away long car journeys to...

    Suggestion for upgrade - Mobile Access

    Mods & Owners, http://forums.crackberry.com/f35/berryblab-vbulletin-blackberry-412171/ Whilst searching for another app for my BlackBerry, I came across this. Basically it simplifies forum access on BB's, but it needs a module installed into vBulletin. Is this something that can be considered...

    Slipperduke Review of 2009

    Welcome, my very dear friends, to a very special presentation. It's that time of year again, you see. A chance to sift through the wreckage of twelve months of English football, to reward the noble and to eviscerate the terrible. Bigger than the Ballon D'or, more prestigious than the PFA, these...
