There was another clip of Glenn Aitken on RK this morning, emphasizing again , our aim of going full time, and indeed, the fact that our sponsor, Mr Gladwish, would like to see this happen as well. (Forgive me if its slightly distorted for the paraphrasing!)

Well that's OK then , if Mr G says so , but where will the extra income necessary come from ?
The club were full time in the era around 1960 but it didnt give us any long term benefit, and we sat at the bottom of the Southern League for most of the late 60s .
People like Mr Aitken , on the staff but with no financial contribution/liability , tend to be a bit dangerous raising expectations in the short term to protect their job.

I'm told that the Reporter has an article about Mr G wanting to put more money into the club next season.

Which train was that? I've been here all day.

I do recall a train failing at Belvedere this morning.....maybe you caught that train up?

Unfortunately, when I got up, the papers hadn't even been delivered to the paper-shop.

Not forgetting the bridge bash at North Kent East Junction this morning - from just before 9am until 9.30 ish the line speed over the bridge was reduced to 5mph.....

.....blasted road vehicles!

You were caught up in a backlog of trains into London as a result.

I'm not here to make you feel better, just offer an explanation.

Actually..... I'm not here for that either but I hear you don't like the platform staff at Dartford! lol

Well as you are obviously not there to make the trains run on time, what do you do with yourself all day?

And before you say that you are on the computer, I have it on good authority that you only use one hand for that, so tell us Daz, what are you doing with the other hand?

The railway network runs on tea - those electric rails are really only there for cosmetic purposes!

So which train are you going to be on so that I can cancel it as a gesture before I go home?

Hmm I think the 17:32 from Charing Cross should be avoided then.

Ooooh - can't cancel that one as it could be my train home!

Then again.....I could catch the 18.02 Strood service from here, thus leaving that one (18.07 here) free to be axed!
