    I on a bet last season and it was like pulling teeth - an animal charity they didn't count apparantly and I should have reconsidered. He paid in the end but it was just not pleasant.

    Yes bang on 35 league games.
    You can choose any legitimate charity of your choice. I don't know about your previous one.
    Would have thought the bloke who called me a tit for suggesting we need someone else to support Doyle.
    Would have had the guts to accept the bet like you and Astute did.
    Confirms what I suspected. Gives it large then shrinks when it comes to backing it up. My charity will be Myton btw just in case you or Astute feel like throwing in the towel early.

    I was one of his best fans when he was first here but sorry 6 years later no having said that nothing would please me more than him to prove me wrong(we need some good news)

    Pulling teeth is never pleasant, especially not when it's a Rottweiler chewing a wasp.:emoji_poodle:

    I am not convinced with Michael Doyle as from the few times I saw him play he seemed to specialise in giving the ball away and then fouling the player when trying to get the ball back but at least we are not waiting to sign players at the start of pre-season or 2 weeks into the season like we did with Mowbray. It would be good to strart pre-season with all or the most of the squad in place

    I had a good drink last night too, but didn't think about the Club once.

    You were not one of those who made that statement At the start of the season just gone? If a 36year old does that to you wait till we sign a decent striker.

    I thought it was, I hate Leon Clarke even more now! Haha (at least it's for a good cause).

    Remind me how much and I'll post a screenshot on here of the donation.

    Talking of animal charities did you ever pay the cinnamon trust or are you still accusing me of trying to extort money from you on behalf of an animal charity?

    Anyhow, back on to Doyle.

    He'll either play almost every game and be awesome or he'll pick up an injury early doors in the season forcing him to hang his boots up.

    How many years ago was his last injury?

    I would normally not be happy with signing someone of his age. But you can't dispute the amount of games he has played in recent years. If we could have a whole team playing the same amount we would put out the same team frequently.

    Decent signing for our level, surprised some are complaining about his age after the complaints about us fielding mostly 'kids'.

    Robins might be looking at a few more Portsmouth players! Working on a theory that they have done it before , it takes special sort of mentallity it to live a war of attrition over a seasons campaign

    Some just seem to want someone to blame and something to complain about.

    Agreed. In the main. Just worried he's overdue one and with our luck it's bound to in the first few weeks and we never see him play again.

    Let's face it, we are now in Division 2, all we are going to get are crocks and oldies looking for their final hoorah's.

    Astute;

    I've finally donated the £20.. I felt quite good until they asked "reason for donation"... I couldn't bring myself to type "lost a bet"
