I'd rather spend the afternoon in your bath than in Bolts' garage  ;)

Stabo mate I was only keeping Bolts warm for you in your absence  :ok:

Bolts - get a train to BDTBL ffs rather than sit in yer garage!! It's hardly long distance.  :ok:

I'm still not sure whether or not I can make it Satdi but I have booked 14 days off from now till end of the season when I will be there, 12 of which are Leo Sayers and 2 where I will have to work after  :ok: :ok:

If I can't make this Sat I will be absolutely gutted  )O( )O(

COYRAWW  :cheer: :cheer: :cheer: :cheer:

My garage is far better than BDTBL. I have a beer fridge, smoking is allowed, an electric fire for winter, plenty of nibbles, the chat room, although Stabo does get a bit lippy at times, Blades Player, and it takes far less time to have a piss than being at BL.

Paints a good picture, but I would prefer to be at BDTBL.

I would like to, but Network Rail are closing the station again at weekends to continue upgrading the line. Also, the golf season is still in full swing.

I will make an appearance at some point...

It's nearly KO time again fellas  :cheer: :cheer: :cheer:

Following on the theme below, I had a look at the table and agree with Lings in terms of I think we could finish top half.

Judging by last season and their pre-season so far, I think Ipswich will self destruct this year and will end up being the "big club" that goes down to League One.  Certainly the locals round here have no aspirations for them and a lot of fear.  Can't see Macarthy lasting until Christmas unless they become a surprise package.

Millwall will be out of their depth and I think Bolton will struggle.

I think the pigs are going to find it harder this year and will finish well outside the play offs - unless they surprise us and make some good last minute signings (as well as finding a kit from the lost property box).

I think Boro will walk the league and Cardiff, Fulham and maybe Derby will be the "surprise" teams pushing for a top two finish.

I think Burton will struggle.  The Dingles will collapse and Sunderland will be another that self implodes and ends up in a relegation battle. 

So I think we'll be in a mid-table battle with Leeds, Norwich, Hull, Birmingham, Brentford, Forest, QPR and Reading.

For me the key is our defence.  We kept the ball so much last season we were rarely given a stern test.  We certainly have the talent at the back, but our style of play - with the full backs pushing on, does allow for the opposition to get in behind the three CBs, if they're quick and skilful enough - which I'm assuming they will be in the Championship.

Whatever happens, I think we're going to surprise a few this season and I hope that includes giving the deluded massive from S6 a spanking, home and away.

For us, it will depend on

No time even for 1 - working till about 1.30 and heading into town. I do know a taxi but you want a good one, so can't help  :whi

I got my membership for this season earlier and bought the match ticket.......they said they would post it 1st class so I should have it for Satdi.............not convinced though  :^^

Feckin' Taters they're full of it aren't they?

Get Brooks on to tear 'em a new arsehole (although they seem to have plenty already). They sound like Pigs FFS!

So - Bath Hotel tomorrow - 1pm or are we looking to kick off little earlier? One thing I do know is we probably can't leave getting to the ground quite as late this season as we did last - it's already going to clearly be chaos after the ST debacle - so glad I'm not fetching a ticket from the ticket office today or tomorrow!!!  :o :o
