    happy with the point and the effort put in, I just hope we can keep up the intensity when we play the mid and lower table sides.

    Quite a turnaround... You lost to the ****test side you've played and are sitting pretty after a very tough run...

    Yeah I honestly thought you were nailed on for relegation when we beat you on the first day. Good stuff since then though, it's nice to see the "top teams" drop points so well done to your boys.

    Gills lose again @brb, that 3 on the bounce now? Had a decent start too.

    Still above Swindon at least.

    Against Oxford luck was on our side when we won 3-1, meaning Oxford were by far the better side. Today we saw a reverse of those fortunes, we hit the post, crossbar, couple of good saves, and we get done 0-2.

    Our biggest problem, we are too big and heavy up front, today we lacked a goal poacher. We have Zech Medley, who is tall but like a stick insect at the back and players the size of Akinde up front, we've got this arse about face.

    Just seen that FA cup draw is Monday.

    Love the first round of the cup, one of my favourite days on the football calendar. Though it will be a bit **** this time round actually with lack of fans.

    Really need to allow fans to the 3 NL divisions at least.

    Gonna be a bizarre season all round mate which might not even finish at your level. Sure you'll be happy with just avoiding relegation for this season and crack on again next.

    Yeah avoid relegation and its job done, that's all I can hope for and with 10 points already in the bag it's a good start, you need between 50-53 to avoid the drop on average in this league.

    Financially, and before coivd... https://www.kentonline.co.uk/medway/sport/gillingham-reveal-500k-loss-in-latest-accounts-236012/

    Would love to know the viewing figures for Fulham v C Palace....compared to Leeds v Villa and Pool v Sheff U.

    Guess that sensitive information will be used by the PL top teams in their negotiations for a bigger slice of the pie.

    no need as they already know the normal figures all the figures would do is persuade the lesser lights to oppose totally clubs selling TV season tickets for their own matches .

    Think it's more a case of the bigger clubs being able to assess the willingness of their fanbases to comply with the PPV model. We're at a critical juncture in the way fans buy their football content and therefore these figures are essential...it's no coincidence we (the phlebs) are not allowed to know what they are.

    Bet the number taking up PPV options is a lower percentage compared to wehn the games are on via normal route. Can't see many RS fans not streaming the game because its now on PPV. Most watch via illegal streams already it seems.

    Win a ticket for a game you can't attend. Great competition.
