    That's next on the agenda according to Cheston, he's been on the roof you know ! All about priorities with these lot though isn't it. Arse about tit priorities.

    The players come out of the tunnel regardless of who's in the ground. Maybe they'll shut that next and they can just come in through the gates in the corner of the JW ? BBE. There is no justification for wasting money on the TV gantry whatsoever during these tight times. Like has been said that's a few peoples wages, people who are still needed. Maybe they want one of those electronic advert hoardings I heard that was in the pipeline so possibly it can only be at the JW side but still we are hardly on the box anyway. This kind of stuff is what you do when you get back to the Prem ! We know the real reason is it's just a whim from owners who employ an accountant to cut costs at ground level then completely wipe it out by wasting it on something pointless. A classic example if there ever was one of what we are up against with these fools and why we will never move forwards under them, ever !

    Except these plans for the gantry were in motion way before ST's were on sale !

    Should have been done years ago when we had spare money to do it. No sense whatsoever wasting money we haven't got now doing it just so a set of idiotic gimps in India can see the main stand. You do realise people are getting laid off right ? How much wages has that cost ?

    80 mins ? I presume you mean that's for the post match brew in the car sat in traffic, this is the riverside we're on about

    Whilst chaos ensues in there on Sat as thousands jostle for the best available seats left a lone apologist turns up. He finds his seat he's sat on for nearly two generations not obstructed but removed completely along with those either side. A metal pole and stabilisers are now bolted to the step where his seat once sat. Shrugging his shoulders he sighs "oh it's a shame they've had to reconstruct it like this so they can see from India. They didn't mean it it's all an innocent mistake the Venkys just have no understanding of the English scaffolding system, they've been duped again" Off he shuffles to sit on a step elsewhere. No sign of a riot here, who is this mystery guy ?

    Rhetorical question.

    But surely with cost cutting measures in abundance we can't afford this. Factor in Cheston said ticket money goes towards running costs of the ground and that's going to take a big blow because of the stayaways. Then they lay some off who've worked there for years then hey presto they spend money on something as pointless as this. So lack of income doesn't apply to stupid whims then ?

    Great effort from Frampton he's a real pressure fighter and to do it over there he's proved the real deal Barry McC always said he would be. Whyte and Allen on the other hand proved what I feared, a pair of cloggers. Disappointed with that and the best thing Whyte will be is a poor mans Chisora I think.

    As far as I know Whyte v Allen is on the bill on Saturday.

    Yeah I'd like to see Burns have a go at him again but he's got a serious test first. I like Burns although he frustrates to watch sometimes it's impossible to dislike the guy, needs to ditch the pink stuff though Really looking forwards to Santa Cruz v Frampton, potential firecracker and I probably lean towards the home boy basically because he is just that. Another I'm quite looking forward to is the Whyte v Allen scrap, both probably a bit limited but nothing better than seeing 2 HW's trying to knock each others blocks off !

    Removing the top tier we don't need them anymore apparently and won't need them where we are going. Everything has it's price

    Lay off staff then waste money on this farce, what a unique set of disgraceful muppets run that club. Cheston is on course to be in Shaw like despised territory, well done.

    2 years with option of a 3rd I think but that means nothing. Lambert was here for 2.5 years until he bailed and we found out that no he wasn't actually.

    They better not point it at the subs bench, every chance that'll be empty as well !

    Danny Graham

    Graham remains in the shop window here to an extent, score plenty and get good reviews in the first half of the season and an ambitious club around the promotion spots may take a punt. Half a mill plus add ons might do it or even just a better wage and a loan deal. Either we are paying him a heck of a wage or there must have been other incentives to come here unless he just wants to put some roots down and play first team footy. No player at this club who's viewed as an asset is safe though.

    Yep just seems to be scaffolding although maybe they are running the cables in the roof or something or building a walkway for the new gantry. More likely just changing light bulbs !

    What a complete waste of money but I supposed this will be passed off as generous owner investment ! Cut vital costs with one hand then window dress and waste money with the other.

    If you wanted to be cute about it you'd say there's been a delay then start the work when the season starts and say it'll have to be closed for a while. Get people in the JW then say there's more problems and it will have to remain closed a while longer, job done. Like everything else at Rovers these days you can almost write the script !

    Good ones, although I won't be offering them If it was at home I'd really back Smith but in front of frenzied Alvarez followers and the USA reputation for judges I can't see him pulling it off.

    Sept 17 at Dallas Cowboys stadium. Think Smith has bitten off more than he can chew here, still he'll make a few quid.

    Groves and Callum Smith sat together on the panel for Abraham fight looking a bit uneasy in each others company lol. Mind you everyone is uneasy around Groves ! Would like to see that one, good match up.

    Well anyone can have a bad night and anyone can have a good one and sometimes that's all it takes. I rate Smith highly but I'd like to have seen him take a smaller step up first. I've always said I don't think Canello is all he's cracked up to be but he's big and strong at the weight and can take shots. I do think he gets a bit gassed after about 7/8 rounds though. It'll be very difficult to get a decision over there mind.

    Just seen a photo of Brook and GGG stood together in Times Square from tonight. Brook in suit & shades, GGG just in shirt and it's noticeable how much bigger Golovkin is and I doubt he's much over his fighting weight
