Bowls of gruel you say, luxury!

Are you not telling us your age whilst you are here Goole Away, or will we know that it wasn't possible for you to have been there in '71.
I reckon with your Monty Pythonesque comment of 'Bowls of gruel you say, luxury'! You are old enough to have been there and will raise our overall average age.

Garswood is still miles older than any one else at 67, nearly 16 years above average. At least the buses are free and your season ticket is cheap.

Season ticket is a bonus, as are away tickets.
Never use the buses though. Full of pensioners.
But also can travel free by train to Liverpool.
Never go - full of scousers ;)

However, I do have the freedom to go to Tesco at lunchtime, leave my trolley in the middle of the aisles while I wander off, slowly unload my shopping at the till, hunt for my credit card, forget my PIN twice, and stop to have a chat with other people (whether I know them or not) blocking the shop doorway.

Got to keep the mind active ;)

I’m sure I was still young at the start of the season, now I’m looking at stairlifts!

I didn't realise you were older than martinh, I thought you were the same age.

Ha ha, I was always older, Martin the more intelligent. As for the other one who supported Preston? I have nightmares that he’ll turn up as Donald Trump’s adviser!

Just coz the miles are on the clock it doesn't mean we have to turn into the slippers and cardie brigade.When I'm in the dj booth I become a born again young-un. Nothing better than the 90s dance stuff to fill a floor. Whack a bit of Ultrabeat, Ian Van Dahl, Alice Deejay on and watch em go. 80s is always popular and of course Northern Soul. As a trucker I'm 61 feeling like I'm 75. As a dj I'm still in my twenties lol. As the late great Barry White sang, "Let the music play".

Fixture release day is fast approaching so the first 'Guess the Gate' prediction of the 2019/20 season will soon be posted.
I don't think many changes will be made other than the points system and a few more 'bonus' weeks.
Watch this space for updates, any changes will be revealed before the first prediction league of the season is posted.

That's the feedback I've been getting from most people.
I would like a few more playing if possible, but there's not a lot I can do about that bar offering £££'s in prize money, but that ain't going to happen.
I went cap in hand last season to CL to get a prize, and hopefully this season I will be lucky enough for Jayt/The Egg to support us again (thanks lads).

Although associated with Monty Python, it was originally performed on 'At last the 1948 show'. I'm older than I think!

HORC .... it is all jolly good fun, thanks for doing it, and keeping on with it.

I want to make 2 suggestions:

1. That the scoring can be age related.
2. We do a pre-season warm up / training session and have a guess at the grand total of all games at the end of the season.

Thanks!
Let's talk some sense.

GoalsGalore has come up with an idea to add a bit more interest to this seasons Guess the Gate Competition' and I think I will run with it.

Anyone who wants to take a guess at the Grand Total of the 2019/20 League attendance can do so by placing their guess on the thread.

A 10 point bonus will be given at the end of the season to the person who is nearest to the total attendance.

To give you a bit of help, below are the total attendances for the last 6 seasons that we have competed in the Championship.

2018/19 -268249
2016/17 -269606
2014/15 -296286
2013/14 -349071
2004/05 -265949
2003/04 -218109

The closing date for this particular part of the competition is midnight on Saturday 20th July.

It was the first season after the PL and the FA Cup Final win and like you say, there was still a lot of the PL hangers on.
Our average for the season was a very creditable 15,177.
