Detritus - doesn't that mean waste of some kind ?

Do you have any points of interest to discuss regarding the team or are you one of the English professors who has f.. all to say but just critics every ones ideas and use of the language.


Yes it does. Well done. Hopefully you also got the joke, seeing as you missed the one about your post despite the winky wanky.

No, I don't currently have anything to discuss about the team. I'm quite content with the way things are progressing. There's not much that can be said about our last game that hasn't already been posted. I certainly have no desire to read or comment on a long post talking about supposed sports psychology and fitness regimes. So I ignore them and move to the next thread. I'd recommend you start doing the same about non-Gills threads.

I tend to think of this board as our local. We all pop in at different times and days for a pint and a chat and just happen to have The Gills in common, let's face it, looking at some threads that's all we do have in common.
Just like a pub, the chat will stray to politics, the weather (Well, weather girls) what we're watching on telly and what we had/are planning to have for lunch.
Now and then one or more of us will have one too many and get out of our pram, we've got a few old gimmers who sit in the corner playing dominoes but shout their two pennies worth when they disagree with something and, at some point, I walk in and everyone turns their back to whispers of "shit , the old bill's here".
All we're really missing is a landlord to shout time gentlemen please (which, of course, would be sexist) and ask "ain't you got no homes to go to?" causing Buddha to complain about discrimination towards travellers at which point the thread is 100 posts long so we all go out to the car park for a fight. It all looks like handbags and at the end we all hug and tell each other that "I love you really mate" and we move onto a thread about nutrition and sports science.


Brilliant post, nobs! My round, what you having?

Excellent post Nobby. I've had some fun on here (as well as taken some abuse) but it's pretty sociable in the main. Great way of keeping up with the Club whilst having a laugh or some inconsequential political debate. People are very good at abiding by Gills and Non-Gills threads. There's no limit to the posting space so it doesn't need to be all football-related does it?

There are plenty of Black Horses in the country (and I've been to a few). This should be the Blue Horse.

Cracking post Nobby.

The name has to be the Queen's Head, and would also have to be the place we'd have to have a meet up, if only we could agree on where it actually is.

I can't stand trolleybuses (are they the electric buses with the long rod?) - trams though

Trev, if you're into trams you need to go to Porto and check theirs out.

I think the problem with playing well and winning is that most will agree on the main points. Ie X had a great game, what a goal from Y, Z was motm, and so on. So less actual posts are submitted.

When we lose or are playing poorly there are far more things to discuss. Starting 11, formations, key points in the game, referee, subs, so and so should’ve done better, injuries, suspensions, etc. Plus not everyone will have the same opinion as to why we lost.

As a keen cyclist I am interested in sports science and nutrition, but appreciate that some will think it’s all namby pamby old twaddle. A friend of mine at work said a few years ago now, “Greavesy used to have a fag,burger and pint at half time and still score a hat trick, so why can’t aguero hit a cows arse at the moment?!?!” Made me laugh anyway.


As an aside, I really enjoy the non gills posts. And tbf they’ve been about as long as I’ve been reading/posting. That goes back to the rivals.net board.

Great analogy about the pub nobbs.

Of course, what we really need is a return of a certain someone to get us all on the same side again........

Cheers, would love to go there. I went to Lisbon back in August

The thing that gets me about sports science is it seems a cycle with every new manager. I love it when Average Joe likes to claim he knows why clubs like Arsenal get muscular injury crises, or why a Premiership star struggles to shake off injuries.

Well you'l see how important sports science is when Gills face 4 games in 10 days- then you'l see how frustration, fitness, yellow cards and injuries has on the squad. Eaves our top scorer is on the verge of facing a ban with one more card ? -
So Detritus - you don't think this is worthy of a mention or a discussion ? Will Gills cope with this intense period or will they crumble - ?

Trolleybuses, rubber tyres and two poles to positive and negative wires since no tracks for earthing current. Often called tracklesses. Interesting fact, brake pedal and power pedal are usually reversed from the normal set up. Story goes that Maidstone acquired trolleybuses from Hastings when M&D shut that system down in 1959 which had conventional pedal arrangements. They discovered this after towing one to Maidstone and wiring it at Loose. Bloody thing wouldn't go.

We have an old Porto tram in Duluth. English Electric from Preston.

Re sports sciences, clearly very important but it always very difficult to demonstrate that a series of specific, but different, effects are attributable to a set of specific, but different, causes.
