'I think I've seen Stevenage every time at RP and they always play this horrible muscular percentage football.'
It must be nice to be Newport/Chesterfield etc and play like Real Madrid every week
Real Madrid - pah! When County played at Bloomfield Road in the FA Cup some seasons back, the fans were chanting 'It's just like watching Brazil'.
"just like watching Brazil'."
Yep, the 7-1 defeat to Germany in 2014 WC S/F!

Bob, do you have a half-and-half scarf for today?
I do but not going as I only had an operation Monday and it's too soon to be contemplating long journeys. iFollow is my friend today.
Wishing you a full and speedy recovery Bob.
Up the Boro!
Hope you're starting to feel better, Bob.
Not much chance playing nice football on their rugby pitch.
Probably one of the better pitches in the league now, even with 3 teams on it.
I stand corrected. Looked good.
Certainly a change from recent years. Just a pity the WRU are screwing us to pay for it with their view of the small-print in our rental agreement!
Whilst you're here.... what do you reckon to your chances this season? Can you maintain the good start? I was surprised to see you start so well but you look to be a decent side and without there being that many proper good sides in the league, we all have a chance.
I would be surprised to see us stay top 3, purely because we have such a thin squad. If we get another good cup draw and we can spend in January then there's a chance, but I think any realistic Newport fan will be hoping we can make the play-offs at most.
We do have some good players, but a few of the are loans until January so a lot will depend upon whether they can stay to the end of the season. Would be great if we could stay there for clubs like us who are very similar in stature.
In fairness, it's been relaid with plastic woven into it, plus the drainage has been sorted out.
Facts schmacts. Do you listen to Maulover Pod? They were chatting pitches recently.

No, I don't. I've not heard of that one. The one rugby podcast I do listen to is Blood & Mud, which is worth a try if you have room for one more podcast!
Not until the NFL season ends... I guess I don't really follow domestic rugby enough to enjoy podcasts on it properly either...
