    Although many moons ago and prior to his Gas days, I think Darrell's radio phone-in is a peach and should be added to the list.

    He may well have been supporting Chelsea when we played them for the final time in Division Two of the old Football League. No doubt we took the Shed End in the away game, and he's never forgotten how we travel in numbers!

    Their one and only beef with SL is that he pumps millions into us, not them. That's it. This bitterness is compounded by the fact they have never had anyone willing or able to back them to the same degree (when they so desperately need it). Until now, of course. What they could do, with someone like SL... But to throw mud at SL simply because he is red, not blue would leave them wide open to ridicule, too easily dismissed, so they pretend to be outraged by his non-dom status. Of course, if they were geniunely affronted by football club owners not doing their bit for their country or for being questionable characters, they would be "banging on" about the owner of Sports Direct, or the one running Villa into the ground until recently, or the ones borrowing hundreds of millions to buy Man Utd and lumbering the club with the debt, or the goon at Cardiff/Fulham/Forest (take your pick), not the one employing local people at the going rate along Anchor Road and ploughing millions into the local economy in south Bristol (and rescuing long established local sporting clubs, rather than taking advantage of them at their most vulnerable). But they don't give a f*** about any of that. What pisses them off is that he is spending millions on us, not on them. It's hypocrisy laced with decades of bitter, bitter envy. A toxic combination.

    I've got it all sorted. The title is ours: Win tomorrow gives us 203 points Yorks on 204 Lancs will battle on for a draw leaving Middlesex on 213 Next week Middlesex and Yorks have a highly entertaining maximum bonus point draw and end up on 226 and 217 points respectfully. Leaving us to thrash Notts by 23 or 24 points and winning the title either by most amount of wins or 1 solitary point. NURRRRRSE!

    Thank god for that. I honestly hope you are never a victim of hooliganism, because I've seen plenty of shirters getting a kicking from the likes of Cardiff and the the like, of course your idealistic bubble you live in will protect you. Do you know how many times we've had to stand and protect innocent people from getting kickings, who knows it could have you been saved a good hiding by one of our lot, but as you know everything about hooliganism carry on chatting behind your keyboard.

    I didn't realise how tight money was at the Mem, think I saw him flogging them outside Joes Bakery thinking about it now.

    Has anyone informed these plonkers that it takes years to attain CAT 2 academy's and even after that it's not guaranteed... Anyhow by the time they have cat 2 we'll have Cat 1 and just take all their players anyway.... Seems an awful waste of time to me

    His foot slipped, it could have happened to anyone. And he was only in the Black Swan helping the landlord to empty his barrels.

    I don't think he bought them as a toy, he probably thought it was a genuinely good business deal. Possible this happened... Higgs said buy the club, it has assets and only a small amount of debt. They ask why he is selling the club then, well because he has to service a loan and has ran out of lines of credit. Wael looks at the finances, yup, a couple of loans to pay off that have fallen due, and then the club is debt free with a nice large asset in the Mem. Seems a good deal, check with Higgs what kind of cut he want's out of the deal - he ask for maybe 1-2 million and bingo - Rovers have a new owner, Dwayne Sports, who are registered in Jersey and have now got the purchase and loan payments on their books. Now he starts to realise the club runs at a loss, that the UWE deal is not a clear cut as it seemed, in fact UWE seem keen on using the land for a new faculty. Wael also realises that they will not own the land, and that Rovers will be nothing more than tenants and for that privilege they have to front most of the building costs - so he has to renegotiate to get a better deal. Wael looks at his £70 odd million wealth and starts wondering how much he should put into the club... it's a big gamble, and most of the wealth is tied up in assets, so he looks for financing, but what kind of returns can they expect from the ground for a large up front costs ? Probably nowhere enough to make it a decent deal, so he struggles to find anyone to get on board.... and that's where we now are Wael goes to sleep at night cussing Higgs and dreaming of owning a trouble free Gillingham. So Rovers are owned by a offshore company, in a tax haven, by a business man from Jordan - and what is it they say about us and Lansdown ?

    From the film "The man who would be King"? Michael Caine and Sean Connery who uttered that phrase.

    Drier, clearer skies. Hopefully more batting friendly. Got a feeling Middlesex won't be enforcing the follow on anyway. They will think the pitch will get worse.

    Yes, I think if we can keep the majority of this squad together, get Jamie O fit again and produce pitches like we have towards the end this season from the off then we have a real good chance next season.

    If you think there is only trouble if you look for it then you're very wrong, maybe you wear a shirt and shoes when you're at football so nobody bothers you but saying it's easy to avoid is quite simply inaccurate. I'm 21 & get abuse chucked at me basically every game, any away games you can guarantee a group of 'hooligans' will be giving it the large as they outnumber us, there's been several occasions where we've had to defend ourselves against away fans when we've literally been walking to and from the ground without being slightly boisterous.

    I don't even bloody like football, I just like the aggro and deliberately getting hassled by old bill, missing half the game that I can't enjoy because I'm wired up on sniff and nursing my black eye. unfortunatelly theres a few on here that'll believe the above sentence............. Although half of its true, I hate football!

    I agree Darell, I've got nothing bad to say about Mansfield Town Football Club either..! How ironic and how did I not know about his links with them prior to May 2014..?! He really is as thick as 2 short planks and a bellend of the highest order (Holloway aside, who is yet another level all together!)

    "Well known club, when I was growing up, always Bristol rovers, Bristol rovers, I remember they had a great following" Fair play to the bloke, he can sit there and spout that bullshit and still keep a straight face

    Not at all Danny. Personally I think you've fallen on your feet with the Al Qadis who will deliver the stadium and a new training complex. Whether they are as willing to stick with it through the less successful times like Lansdown has done with us remains to be seen. I think you'll find that if some of our fans are quick to take the piss out of the apparent lack of instant changes off the field at Rovers it's mainly in response to the w@nkfest and deluded predictions directed at City from Sagheads on Gaschat and Facebook when Wally arrived back in February. Your spunk trumpet mates don't help themselves I'm afraid.

    Used to happen regularly at Wycmbe (a) when the "entertainment" on offer at the White Horse was by far and away better than that on the pitch.

    Lunacy indeed but reality nevertheless trust me. The reality isn't actually empty pubs but those containing locals who are not going to the game having to defend themselves against coked up drunk aggressors. The police are fully aware of this yet choose to ignore it

    So does the person who sits and moans behind me every game for the past few years, but that would be an extreme comparison too ! I honestly don't know why you keep repeating the same lines on every thread to do with this, no offence but it has got very tiresome

    I grew up on the terraces in the 70's and 80's and loved every minute of it, it will be interesting to see if there is as much "fiction" in this book as most other books of the same ilk, not sure that i would compare the CSF with that other hard-core firm at the time, the I.R.A. !!!!
  48. 1 point
    So you are comparing CSF with terrorist groups now ? what a belter. People have every right to detest football hooligans and I accept that they were a negative force in the 70's and 90's but please have a look at your perspectives.......

    So on the day we sell a player for potentially 15 Million they lose to Reading Youth Team. At least now they have the very proud honour of being the only Bristol team to lose in a Carling Cup preliminary Round, relegated out of the league AND lose to a youth team In a competitive fixture.
