  1. Bristol Rovers Dustbin Thread

    Why do Rovers fans use the acronym FTG? Unionists in Northern Ireland use FTP to mean F(obscenity) The Pope, so surely FTG simply replaces the Pope with the Gas?
  2. Walsall fans hotel

    To put the boot on the other foot, has anyone exchanged Pounds for Zloty before playing Walsall away?
  3. Bundesliga highlights.

    BT Sport (Sky 413) is showing them this season.
  4. FA Cup 2017-18

    BBC red button shows Portland 1 - Paulton 0
  5. AFC Small -Klub

    As an aside, I was surprised vto see that B'muff, Pompey & Saints were all at home today, plus Eastleigh in the Nat League.
  6. FA Cup 2017-18

    Oh dear; not too good for "our" clubs, seven of them failing to score. Taunton the only winners. Barnstaple 1 - Clevedon 0, Bideford 6 - Wells 0, Bridgewater 1 - Brislington 0, Bridport 3 - Street 1, Cadbury Heath 1 - Yate 0, Chipping Sodbury 1 - Bishop's Cleve 3, Flackwell Heath 1 - Didcot 2, Hengrove 1 - Bodmin 4, Odd Down 1 - Mangotsfield 0, Portland 1 - Paulton 0, Slimbridge 1 - Cinderford 0, Taunton 3 - Larkhall 0, Willand 2 - Manor Farm 1.

  7. Test Cricket

    It's just you! In boxing the Ref can stop the fight "to avoid further punishment" if required. Pity the Umpires can't award this game to England now on Day Three.
  8. Bristol Rovers Dustbin Thread

    "It's just a small step to put 2 and 2 and 2 together and come up with the amount of fingers on my right hand" six?
  9. FA cup live stream on BBC

    Same here; not on 1 or 2. It was a 12.30 kick off, so should still be two mins left at least.
  10. Speedway at Ashton Gate....

    Swindon Speedway are in the top league, but may well lose their track to housing. This thread currently runs to 66 pages http://www.speedway-forum.co.uk/forums/index.php?showtopic=80644&page=1 I was talking to a group from Swindon (non speedway fans) yesterday who gave me an update regarding the new stadium at Swindon. Apparently the old stadium is about to be demolished but it's not clear when work starts on the replacement one? Now think about Torquay United possibly moving to Truro... https://www.theguard...years-plainmoor These two paragraphs re Torquay/GI are very interesting: "Nicholson remains in charge, doing his best in straitened circumstances, but the board who hired him departed in December. Having put their shares in the club up as collateral to borrow almost £150,000 from a businessman named Clarke Osborne, they relinquished control before Christmas to avoid going into administration. The owner of Gaming International, a company with a history of investing in sports grounds for redevelopment purposes, Osborne is a wrecking ball with a history of razing stadiums on the promise of building replacements that never materialise. To date, he has been responsible for the eviction of Bristol Rovers from Eastville and the closure of greyhound and speedway tracks, in places such as Reading and Milton Keynes. GI is also the tenant of the council-owned Poole Stadium, where it runs the dogs and leases the speedway track to the local club. Osborne arrived at Torquay promising investment in a bid to stave off relegation but no new players were signed."
  11. the end of the football programme as we know it?

    For the first time in years, I watched Soccer AM. They featured Frickley Athletic's programme. On one one page there is a write up of their last match. Hold your iphone over it though and you can then watch the highlights as well.
  12. Burton v Birmingham

    Last week when Sunderland's away game was on TV, the home fans could be heard singing "We love you Celtic , we do". At Burton, the home fans, for a short while, sang "One Aston Villa, there's only one Aston Villa". Is this the new craze, chanting about your opponent's rivals? Hmm; Millwall's neighbours are Charlton. "Up the Addicks".
  13. Burton v Birmingham

    So Rovers fans will always be allowed terracing then?
  14. the end of the football programme as we know it?

    A cheap, glorified team sheet is what most of us need/want, not some expensive glossy mag.
  15. Speedway at Ashton Gate....

    I watched the Bulldogs at Eastville when Phil Crump was their top rider. A few years ago his son Jason Crump became World Champion. In an interview he stated "I still have my Dad's Bulldogs racing bib. If ever they get speedway back in Bristol, I'd ride for them". Sadly he's now retired. The last few years have seen fine performances by Somerset Rebels, but the three tiers of Speedway were ringfenced with no promotion or relegation. As @Tears in rain posted Eastbourne hit finance problems and voluntarily dropped down two leagues. Coventry lost their circuit and a couple of other top teams went bankrupt. To increase the numbers in the top league Rebels were elected into it at the last AGM. I never believed the reason speedway left Eastville was due to noise complaints when the M32 goes past the place, but I think NIMBYs would prevent the sport returning to Bristol. I do wonder though if Rebels would eventually come under the Bristol Sport umbrella.
