  1. S82 Song/chant Tonight

    At least the Tom Thumb Dooby Do is an original. I have never heard any other team attempt to sing it.
  2. Please tell me I didn’t imagine a streaker tonight?

    For those of a certain age.... Don't look Ethel!
  3. Mags

    Commentary suggested he might have got a slight hamstring injury hence subbed. Wasn't confirmed in press conference afterwards but then Dean Holden wasn't asked.
  4. R I P 2018 thread ...

    Really? Did you meet him? There are Christians here on OTIB who wouldn't even suggest such a thing if a famous Imam or other religious leader died. The Mission England event took place at a few venues in 1984. What most people don't know is that because the Billy Graham Organisation paid up front the full cost of hiring the Gate before the event, BCFC had enough cash flow to stop us going bankrupt. So if he was a scumball, at least he saved your club. Perhaps, you could learn some respect even if you don't believe in Jesus.

  6. Scapegoat first eleven .

    Shaun must have been blamed at one time hence the expression, 'Feed the scapegoat and he will score."
  7. Bristol Rovers Dustbin Thread

    Here you are Slarti.... But they'll never be as good as this band....
  8. Bristol Rovers Dustbin Thread

    Slarti. I'm very disappointed in you. I got all excited that the first chart single I ever bought with my pocket money, had somehow been selected. What's more there was a video of it! Imagine my surprise when instead of hearing Kites by Simon Dupree and the Big Sound I was treated to a follow up featuring Captain Feathersword from The Wiggles. He might be a gentle giant but that's prog rock for you.
  9. Did Grigg shout "leave it"

    I was wrong. He was booked for arguing with the ref.... Bobby Charlton was booked in a game at Old Trafford against Newcastle United in the early Seventies. His offence was to disagree with the referee about the distance of a Newcastle defensive line from the ball as he was about to take a free-kick. The referee booked Charlton before moving the line back to the 10 yards required by the rules of the game. Indeed, Charlton was booked for asking the referee to ensure that other players played to the rules. -
  10. Did Grigg shout "leave it"

    Hi Miah, I remember Bobby Charlton getting booked for this. I'll add, I think, just in case I'm wrong. I'll check.
  11. Grigg .... one that got away?

    Will Grigg hasn't exactly set the international scene alight. Played 9 times for Norn Iron and scored once. This was against Belarus in a friendly. However, his first ever senior goal was against Bristol Rovers (in 2011). If Grigg is worth 6 million then Milan Duric is worth considerably more based on stats! Milan has 14 international caps and has scored 7 times. His first goal was against Wales.
  12. Ex City Players and Staff - John Gorman

    Thanks Sandhurst Red for the photo. Not only did you get John Gorman in the photo but Adam Baker just happened to be there as well.
  13. Bristol Rovers Dustbin Thread

    Interesting point Rob. I've discussed the following point elsewhere on OTIB but what if Bristol Sport did a deal with Rovers? The deal being if you, BRFC, get into the Championship, you can use our ground for a nominal fee. In return, Bristol Sport owns the Memorial Stadium which means the Rugby Team can return to its rightful home. Would the gas fans turn up to Ashton Gate? When they had to in the 80s because of 'that' fire, the normal Rovers Eastville attendance dropped by around 2,000 for an Ashton Gate fixture. No doubt a few, as a matter of principle, would still stay away. What could happen if the deal was signed? Rovers would get relegated and go into liquidation. At the very least, Bristol Rugby would be back at the Mem.....until Bristol Sport sells it to Sainsburys. The money raised would be used to put a roof on Ashton Gate!
  14. Coventry 2-2 1977 a stage play is in the making

    Great thread. I wasn't there. If you ever meet Beryl Fudge's son Dave, don't ask him about the game. Beryl grounded him from going as he had school the next day.
  15. New City chant everyone can join in with

    This is one of those chants that stirs up the pedant in me. If they did indeed come in a taxi from Carlisle, they'd be pretty wealthy! During the miner's strike, if we ever played a team north of Birmingham, the East End would chant "We've got more money than you (team name) followed by the waving of a note. Harry Enfield's character Loadsamoney enhanced this a few years later.
