  1. Bailey Wright knee scan

    I have sometimes wondered this season if some of the players have been "carrying knocks" and our team has just got on with it because they don't want to let the other players, coaching staff and fans down. If that is the case credit should perhaps go to players like MT for potentially playing through an issue - it shows a very good attitude and our great team spirit. In a perfect world of course we would have a bevvy of quality players on standby to jump in, but unfortunately that kind of luxury is something only some of the top teams in particular Villa, Wolves (and maybe Derby) have rather than us Maybe we as fans should be a little less quick to jump on players when they perform poorly? - I think all of of O'Neill, Hegeler, and Taylor have at least had their performances and "suitability for the championship" questioned just prior to fans finding out there is an injury. Maybe also we're paying a little bit now for a lack of "quality depth" in our squad and playing pretty much the same players match in match out for a few months during our fabulous runs before the new year. We need to hold on and do what we can until the Injury situation improves, with a full squad to pick from (and rotate a little) I think we have proved we're a match for most in the division. Our run in looks reasonable (albeit teams fighting lower down can be tough) but we should keep the faith!
  2. Section 82 expansion...Ideas and Pitches?

    I presume the covering on the roof is some sort of grass/astroturf? - Is there access to the roof or are they just buying scotty a ladder?
  3. Sky Sports Championship Predictor 4th !

    I don't really see the previous seasons performance as being relevant - This season vs last is "night and day" for us and arguably Villa too.
  4. Possibly Something Special Happening Here

    I think I heard yesterday that £750M is their squad value? An interesting hypothetical exercise to which I think i can guess the most common answer.... The 22 starters from last night decide to play a game of "schoolyard football" for fun - two captains are picked (lets call them Bailey and Kevin). Which player from the 22 gets picked last?
  5. Possibly Something Special Happening Here

    Garita? ! hardly "missed" but admirable he is included in your list One other point on their team's value - Sky said that our team cost £7M and theirs £360M. Actually the real comparison was that when they brought on walker they were bringing on a player that cost them more than seven times the cost of our entire team.

    As i have said before a fool and his Job Seekers Allowance are easily parted.

    Surely the self styled "6th richest club in the country" is in the 3rd round of the cup?
  8. Bristol Rovers Dustbin Thread

    from the 'yesterday' thread on sagchat: http://gaschat.co.uk/thread/11404/yesterday So (ignoring the obvious spelling mistakes!)..... You want owners like City have with the Lansdowns? I know they like to mock us for being a "franchise" and "tax dodgers" etc. But the truth of the matter is the sags would give anything to have an owner and vice-chairman like ours who are both wealthy and fully behind the club. Coincidentally that thread is worth a read, sounds like some of the fewers are about to give up on their tinpot club - "Prowed and loyal" to the end

    I know it was childish what people got Garita to retweet but I thought it was funny at the time! The thing is the gas already have a comedy squad
  10. Bristol Rovers Dustbin Thread

    Were these the "luxury" still in date variety? or the normal "out of date, not fit for human consumption" variety sold down their dump?
  11. Bristol Rovers Dustbin Thread

    Given that they were rumoured on here (and sagchat) to be unable to pay various contractors late last year, I think it would be reasonable to assume they don't have any of the Taylor money from Jan 2017 left. So its is probably not too far from the truth to assume they have a maximum budget of £400k plus whatever the owners chuck in from their own pocket (yeah i know that seems unlikely!) for improving the team via transfers. I am not sure £400K is going to buy much these days in terms of quality league one players.

    I cannot believe a club is run as badly as the Gas - but it sure is funny its them!! Bodin's points contribution this season http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/teams/bristol-rovers/scores-fixtures/2017-08 2 goals in a 3-2 away win at Bury Aug 19th = so without him -3pts 1 goal in a 2-1 home win against Plymouth Sep 30th = -2pts 1 goal in a 1-1 away draw against Oldham Dec 30th = -1pt So a total of -6pts if they were actually without him. Taking 6pts of their current total makes nice reading http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/teams/bristol-rovers Is Wael actually trying to take them down to League 2?
  13. Ashton - no pressure to sell

    As I understand it we're quite "unlucky" in that regard, clubs with Jordanian owners are "worth more and bigger than we'll ever be"
  14. Bristol Rovers Dustbin Thread

    They have lost 50% more matches in their last ten games (all comps) than we have lost all season. It does seem very much like Wolves last minute winner against us was their best result of the season.

    True! 17 years and counting!
