What difference is it going to make if your obsessed with the 82ers or you say **** em we’re Rovers this is our club so who cares about them ? We’re all entitled to our opinion but none of it makes any difference to whether the 82ers are successful or we’re successful or not. All we can do is support our club. ______________ That is undoubtedly true but do you care that there will be a F.C. in the FL called Bristol Rovers and are still relatively well supported. You think I’m obsessed with city ? Not true but I see their crowds and I see their plans and then I look at ours and it’s pretty clear to see who is taking the initiative. I’d like to think that we can pick up some floating fans and alliances but, as it is, the only gasheads are kids being born into it and not all of them are nailed on certainties That is all I am trying to say but fair enough, looks like I’m in a very small minority. I am old enough to remember how many of our own changed alliance when they got to the old division 1 and it hurt to see friends, at school, suddenly turn up with their city scarves. It will happen and I hope they can feel our hot breath upon them when it does. The “gap” is getting bigger while we do nothing ______________ I agree; Wael talks a lot of evolution but the only evolving thing I can see is that City will pick up more and more younger/floating fans and while we are still all talk and no trousers. Its hard to accept the evolution not revolution philosophy when your neighbours have transformed their ground into a good modern stadium with top training facilities and signing players for £5million+. It will be years before we even start to catch up with them, if at all. Anyone who thinks City's success wont affect us is very short-sighted. ______________ I think you need to be at least 35/40 to really appreciate and understand the rivalry that there USED TO BE between us and The Sh*t. It's now nearly 20 years since we last played them in a league game and although football is unpredictable we are unlikely to cross paths soon. In the meantime, away from the pitch as you last 2 guys have stated we are drifting even further away. You quite rightly say KP that the only new Rovers fans are those that are born into it like my 11 -year -old lad , but even then some of these kids don't follow their families. Over the last few years I have taken plenty of my lad's friends to games - not one of them has become a Gashead, they either support one of the big clubs or no-one. One small thing I'd like the club to do more is have regular open trials (a couple of times a season) for the Academy - it's letting the local public know that the club is part of the community and interested in engaging with its supporters and Bristol folk. ______________ Thank you very much. At least one person gets what I am saying. I appreciate your back up. They now are getting a category A academy while we argue who will pay for a training ground and that will be done piecemeal as it is. We haven’t changed at all and are still very much ragbag or ragass as Cotterill said. I would just love to compete is all but I’m dreaming. I don’t see it happening

    How long in league one would be satisfactory? How many seasons would you be happy with in league one? A decade? 2 more years then championship? How long do you really think with our infrastructure would be needed in league one? _________________ Ive had enough of the sh** league already.
  7. What causes our mid season slump?

    Im so embarassed, thats not something I want to sea again
  8. I'm sure we've had a thread about this already but it's internationals so... does anyone have an explanation that makes sense theoretically?

Question marks? 1]We are losing money. Most clubs have overall debt,some as high as £100m+ but even so we dont want to be losing money. 2]The charge against the mem,some say totally normal business practise,others think its a sinister threat to the club. 3]But what about the new ground or redeveloped ground?some say give them time,others say nothing will ever happen. COST OF GETTING A NEW GROUND,TRAINING FACILITY AND PROMOTION WINNING TEAM? £60-80m maybe? can this be done with our new owners? YES OF COURSE IT CAN 5 years from now we will be in the championship with a better ground,a great youth set up and a bright future.
