Born in Gravesend so not quite Medway, but Gillingham was the nearest 'real' team - just seemed a better option than Gravesend & Northfleet.

Supporter would probably be stretching things a bit as I've never seen them play, just follow their progress and look forward to the day when they return to the Championship :lol:
Could have been in on the ground floor of Ebbsfleet.

Probably wouldn't be much distance in it between the pikeys andthe trainspotters (charlton) from there. Short trip up/down the A2.

Draw with the bottom team midweek and draw with the top team 4 days later.
Good to take some points off Leeds away in front of a big crowd in a Yorkshire derby..

We just can't put a run together at the moment, good result followed by crap result.

Good to get another win in front of another good sized home crowd after 2 draws and conceding 6 goals in the last 3 games.

Charlton closing the gap as Leeds drop another 2 points with an away draw.
Southampton are charging up the ladder after having 10 points deducted before they'd kicked a ball this season.

Some big games (in terms of League One) next week....
Charlton v Millwall - Charlton could move top pending Leeds fixture or Millwall can reassert themselves as contenders
Norwich v Huddersfield - battle of the leading scorers...could be 5-5.
Leeds v Southampton - Southampton could give Leeds a reality check.

Local derby as well, unfortunately I land 12 hours after the game has finished. Charlton will treat this game like their cup final, while we will laugh at the little family club down the road. They will gesticulate and try to act like hard men and show us that we are rivals to them. WE WILL LAUGH!!

Trouble with playing the Gills is, once their supporters turn up and park their caravans, you can't get rid of the buggers. Bloody pikies. :lol:

About once a year they have to abandon useing their training ground and pikeys turn up and claim it. Take a few weeks to get them to move on. Only in gillingham, that place really is a cabernet hole but then so is most of east kent and especially the medway towns.

oh and charlton given 2 penalties and the red card was rescinded later on when the ref realised he got it wrong. 57 minutes incorrectly with 10 men and still the trainspotters couldn't beat us. OFFICIALLY the most one sided derby in English football :lol:

They hate us, we laugh at them.

Haven't been able to find the story, but apparently a bit of a fracas at the end of the game with both managers on the pitch :shock:

Ugly scenes marred stoppage time when Luke Chadwick, already booked, appeared to head-butt Town's Tom Clarke.

It led to a melee in which Town's Lee Peltier and the visitors' Jude Sterling and Jermaine Easter were booked but referee David Foster caused howls of protest from home fans by refusing to take any action against Chadwick.

Don't support them, but always keep an eye on them.

From years of playing with them on FM.

you can't say Snodgrass hasn't been better this year, scoring more frequently and from the games ive watched online has looked a more complete player involving team mates. Don't forget Johnny Howson, he is going to be some player.

Fair enough, just saying he stood out last season too, not that I'm watching too many Leeds games to know the difference! Very strong deep squad at ER, stuff we can only dream of at BP at the moment, but you've got 8-10 times our budget,... and a ground with 4 sides!! :lol:

Huddersfield Town v West Bromwich Albion this Saturday in the FA Cup.
Should be a good test, up against a team currently placed second in the Championship League.
Probably ~20,000 crowd.

yes, just got to hope they shiraz it up like they have previous years by thinking they're too big for this division and have a divine right for promotion.

Town not doing too well in their test, conceded in the 77' and the 82' and down 0-2 :(
Preston North End hammering Colchester United 7-0 currently !
Tim Cahill has just put Everton in front against Carlisle at 82'...2-1 Everton.

Millwall 1 derby 1

We had enough chances to win 4 games today and couldn't finish them. We'll win the replay.
