Barr is immortalised with the Hamid Barr Memorial Car Park in memory of his volleyed open goal miss from 2 yards that sailed into the car park narrowly missing "Kenny".

No, but it is quite clear from everything that's been said on the subject of Gillingham's new ground that they're talking 25,000 seats at least, otherwise they wouldn't be bothering to move in the first place. Scally isn't coming here for the good of Gravesend & Northfleet, he's coming here to expand his business portfolio into housing, leisure, casinos, etc.

Let's not, because we don't want him here!

Lock up your club! There’s a Scally in town!
And he’s hell-bent on making the Fleet fans frown.

With his peculiar notion that the Gills could uproot
To play in Gravesham (to make him more loot!)
Now he’s convinced that it’s in our club’s interest,
To listen to the schemes that he suggests.

So…“Can we see the plans? What is proposed?”
"Confidential information," I suppose
The council will retort, “You don’t need to know.”
But I'm not convinced. Is this merely for show?

When will they sell us down the river Thames?
‘bout the same time as the Gills tenure ends
At Priestfield, the ground that they cannot fill now?
Why would the council respond with a kowtow?

Northfleet is the second biggest club in Kent,
(Well – ‘tis now that Dover and Margate are spent!)
It’s high time the council paid us our dues,
And kept us abreast of the latest news.

If we keep getting results, then bigger crowds will come,
Maybe not overnight, but then there are some
In Gravesend who chortle at the mention of The Fleet.
So come down and watch. Get out of your seat!

Leave your Chelsea, Arsenal and Sky just for one day,
Be entertained, enthralled: Watch the mighty Fleet play!
If Scally persists in this ridiculous scheme,
Then Gravesend might not realise their dream.

We have had success in latter seasons,
With Fordy on board there’s no real reasons
Why we cannot continue, strive and become great.
(Unlike the Gills, punching above their weight!)

So that’s why we should ignore this overture,
Cos its’ Scally by name, and scally by nature!

Abbey - Haworth??!!

Dont you think Roy Manny Drury Moussa are a massive step above those names??!!


However, I do think the squad is looking a bit threadbare forwards-wise at present. I'm not saying that Haworth is a world-beater or anything, but if he were in the squad (or at least a player like him) we would have some back-up for Roy. If Roy gets injured, I just feel that we would really struggle to adequately replace him at present.

As for us having a 10000-15000 capacity stadium and 'working up from there', do you not think this is just a tad unrealistic given our current fanbase, Roy GNFC?

B*gger my old boots !! Someone else liked Ben Abbey.....and there was me thinking I was his only fan last year !! I might even wear the shirt this Saturday !!

I think Ben was harshly judged last season ( oh...by the way...look forward to the Ford out meetings in the Plough when we lose !!). However, in my opinion, ( I like to use the Queen's English and not all that abbreviated excreta) the squad is far stronger than last year, but that does not stop me thinking Abbey was ok !

Oops....forgotten the reason of the thread already !!

Scally...NNNOOO ! Gillingham....NNOOO !! God didn't make the Medway by accident !! Keep to your side of it please Mr Scallywag !!

Fight them on the beaches....call all good men to arms....man the barricades....never, NEVER...shall we be invaded !!

Cheers,

Is there anything we can actually do to stop the propositions apart from talking about what could happen on the forum? (I don't mean that sarcastically either!) Could we organize petitions, posters, letters to the council etc? I know those ideas are a bit far-fetched but when our directors shun the idea, the council will turn their backs on us, we will have no support outside of GNFC. Any more ideas?

There was a fair percentage of Ben fans on the terraces , and I was one of them, but unfortunately we got drowned out by the more vocal amongst us, especially the Ford out campaign.
Could do with him back now, not saying that he would start every week but would be an ideal person to bring on.
Should be seeing quite a bit of him this year, as he is coaching/managing the u'13s at the club where my boys are at this coming season. Just hope he ain't teaching them how to take penalties !!!

Up the Fleet - Unbeaten in 15 now ..

I'd've kept Abbey as a squad player ahead of Haworth. Don't think he'd get in ahead of Roy and Manny/Pinnock, but useful to bring on if you're trailing by a goal.
