Remember kids, don't get involved in military coups (as a general rule, I can see a time I might want to be involved in one myself).

I think I'd want Stuart Ripley as my taxi driver. Although he's a solicitor now.

"So I moved to the United States, initially running a cafe in California, but strange people kept coming into the bar. Now I drive for Uber and I sell books." :lol: maybe the blue oyster salad bar?

What the hell? For him to drop so far surely something serious must have been behind him and Norwich parting by ‘mutual consent’. Shame.

“The main thing that appealed to me is you can train once a week – and it is optional," he added.

"These guys, no disrespect to them, but they're not on my level.

It's nice to be able to come in and be the top dog. I want the armband, eventually. In a nutshell, I'm really happy to be here."
Looking at the photo of him here, it looks like the optional training sessions are taking a toll...

Good luck to Ben in what ever he does. He played in one of the better Rovers teams since relegation from the Premier league and only left when Rovers where selling players like Cairney, Rhodes and Gestede.

I'm with you Darth, amusing quotes aside. He was a great professional for us.

Man, that’s just just really strange. One of my favorites for Rovers.

I saw Grant Hanley scored this weekend. Good for him.

Horrible news that Tony Parkes has been diagnosed with Alzheimers. Best wishes to him and his family.

Its is devastating to see your parents personality disappear. All respect to Tony Parkes and his family. My experience of a similar disease with my Dad means conversations we once took for granted are now a thing of the past. Like Natalie says in the video the Dad she knew has gone.
