In the absence of many transfer rumours, a thread to discuss... y'know other stuff.

I bought one of those Retro 90s t-shirts - the blue and white flame one. S'awright - I might even get the green and orange one as well.

We're getting a new club President soon, NH announced recently. I was going to speculate on who it will be, but then I'd feel bad if I got it wrong. So yeah, conversational dead end.

Watched 'Table for Three' on HullKRTV. The premise doesn't sound too promising - the S and C guys talking to Donaldson about his rehab for 35 minutes. Actually excellent - interesting, intelligent and funny.

10 weeks in Cyprus sound so good. Congratulations to you and Mrs Cravenpark on your big anniversary.

We didn't have a holiday this year, as I used up a lot of my leave allowance when we moved house. I've got 2 weeks for Christmas though, and we've booked a trip to Mexico for May.

I must arrange Sky Sports Arena or whatever it is called now, as well. Might get the PL football as well, if it isn't much extra - Man City are playing good football by all accounts and I've got a soft spot for them, despite Mrs Mild being part of that city's red faction.

Was in Hull last week. Visited the club shop just to waste some time and have a look. Walked out after spending over a £100 on the new howdy, away shirt & scarf. Am debating whether to get the retro 1964 top.

Working Christmas eve,day, boxing day, new years eve and day. Ba humbug.

Not going to the friendlies. Never go, ever since going to an FC/Rovers game where 30 odd players appeared on the pitch.

ditto Luke, I,m on shift from 22nd till 26th days and 30th till 3rd nights. Christmas starts on the 4th !!!!
Just bought the 94/95 retro tee shirt for me an my son, must say I'm quite impressed with the quality even at 35 quid.

I won't be going to the derby either, don't like the KC and see it as an A team friendly, no reflexion on the season to come and have had too many injuries in the past from this fixture.

Trouble is with working (have done for a number of years now), you just forget that it's Christmas day. It's just a normal day for me. But that's the job I do.

Agree about friendlies. Waste of time, no indication to the season. To many changes on the pitch etc.

Got to say when I was in the shop, was very impressed with the quality of the merchandise. And in my personal opinion this season's stuff looked a lot better than the last few years. Like the Retro stuff, perhaps upstairs could have more shirts, tee shirts etc.

Looking at Leeds Away as the 1st game I get to.

Glad to see we're building on our relationship with York, with Butler-Fleming and Will Jubb joining them on one year deals.

This sort of partnership offers so much more than a running a reserve team IMO. Important that we make it work for York too though, if it is to have any longevity.

I can see were you are coming from but I still think every team should have a reserve team the old A teams was so good my first sight of a lot of good players for rovers were first in the A team Gavin Miller was one to get him match fit when he came over

I can understand a nostalgia for it, but the game has changed a lot in the last 30 years.

A worthwhile reserve team would likely be prohibitively expensive. A cheap one wouldn't be worthwhile.

I know a lot has changed in the last 30 years but I can not see how it can be expensive the players we lend out on duel must still be paid by us and any other team that loans them out to lesser teams IE York Bradford and others so it must pay to keep in a reserve team if all teams did it they might be more players instead of players drifting away
