Cracking result for you guys - you guna keep yourselves up? Also what is with this investment, on paper it sounds interesting, much substance/weight behind it?
Hi mate. Yep absolutely vital win. Hope we can do it! Its gonna be very close I think. Just hope we dont go to the Memorial Ground on the final day needing something. The investment is much needed and interesting. Their are still many questions left to be answered. Not the sure the investment is that substanial compared to others in this league but it is competitive.

What a day that could be if we need the win to win the league and you need to win to stay up

190 Torquay at Alty. Decent effort that. It's a fucking long way.
Yep, I was quite impressed by that. Shame it sounds like we failed to turn up on the pitch again.

Also, seems a bit of a fiasco at Woking? Would it not have been possible at all to give up a section of the home end and take in another £20/£30,000? Seems bizarre to turn down that number of fans when the stadium was around 60% full?

Its a bit of a problem especially given though SSN have created an article saying 2000 fans were locked out which is total shit. At the end of the day it was about 100. Any sensible gas fan could have gone into the home end which was open until 3.30. At the end of the day our away end was full and its against our rules to put people elsewhere. And we needed all the stewards we had to look after the 1869 Gas fans.

They've already said if there's a chance we can win the leage last day we'll be on bt sport
I'd rather you than us! Our record has been woeful on BT since we came down. 1 win vs a different Dover earlier this season.

To be fair Cardsfan, there were at least 200-250 locked out when the gates were initially shut. By the time any photos were taken of the queue, many disgruntled Gasheads had left for the pub/their car to go home. There have been several people saying that they tried to get into the home end (with kids) but were turned away because they had been instructed not to let anyone in without a season ticket.

I'm glad Woking have admitted that at no point did Rovers refuse an all-ticket match as was previously reported.

Yep. In reality the figure was probably more like 300. They stopped letting non-ST holders into thr home end at 15.30 anyway. Im sorry for what happened but at the end of the day if an away end is full, legally no more away fans can enter.

Absolutely, I think the vast majority of Rovers fans understand and accept that Woking had to abide by their safety certificate but are, quite rightly, disappointed that it was allowed to happen.

Yeah we made it as far as Warwick services. Realised the place we were going and turned around sharpish. 2 of us had forgotten their jabs.
Hopefully your pitch might be up to standard next time
Sorry for snow and ice, we'll try and fix the weather forecast next time.

Some on your forum wanted us to have under soil heating :fl:
