  1. "Do something quickly?" Does Hugo not listen to Wael and Hamer? After three, one two three: IT TAKES TIME!

  2. this one from hugo? Most parents I know are choosing The Franchise over us to take thier kids to their first game. 5 parents from HTYs football team have been to the Stadium of sh**e for their first ever match this year. We are so far behind now that we will be little more than an afterthought in a couple of generations unless we do something quickly.

  5. Yeah, but.... um.... they take more away than us and, um..... if they had a 40,000 seater stadium they’d fill it regularly. We’ve only had better crowds than them recently. You know, over the last 50 years or so..!

  7. For me Bristol rovers are at a crossraod, one way will either allow us to progress to a sustainable club, or the other to our eventual extinction. I say this because we are, as much as people hate to admit it massively effected by our friends across the river. I talk in terms of future potential generations of fans. At the moment we are tinpot...yes I said it, but we do offset that by only being one league behind, plus if we had plans to build a new stadium, regardless of our league position we would capture the hearts of Bristol’s youth by having the underdog appeal. If we were in the champio

  9. I expect another factor in them choosing AG is that they get to spend time during their kids football match chatting to a Saghead on the touch line and they’ve probably thought “like **** am I letting my kids sit in a tent with you Sags on a Saturday afternoon”. We’ve got the best of both Worlds at AG, a fantastic stadium with over a century of history. With a lot of people a quirky kit and a nickname which could suggest to outsiders that you stink doesn’t really cut it. Keep up the good work Wally and co.

  10. Indeed; you only have to look at their away following to see that actually they are the best supported club in Bristol and people only ever come to Ashton Gate after being locked out at The Memorial Ground. In actual fact I'm only posting on here because I have been banned by Gaschat. In other news Bristol Rovers' new club song has been announced:

  12. Erm, aren't they the same place? I live close to BI, not in it, and there is one staunch gas boozer on the island suggesting the estate is predominantly blue. I would suggest it's one of the few blue areas left but in Barrs, next door, it's virtually ALL red and long may it continue! @Cheesleysmate lives near me so I would assume he agrees? Kingswood was pretty blue when I was a nipper with one shining 'bastion of red' boozer. While there's still a lot of older blues, I would suggest there are an awful lot more reds in BS15 than there used to be, maybe not parity yet but it's not fa

  13. I think it is high time to dispel this rubbish about "core support" with every gashead's nemesis - "facts" as opposed to #gaslogic I took some time to analyse the historical attendance data often linked in this thread to see exactly how core support stacked up over the years between the two clubs. Needless to say if that website's data is even partially correct (and there is no reason to particularly doubt it) it confirms what we all knew already. So how to read this graph..... It is based on the percentage difference in average attendances between the two clubs. A blue b

  18. Personally, there are many things about the gas that I despise but their support pales into insignificance compared to ours so it's irrelevant! Even Sky said on the tele, during the 'Boro match (I watched it again, how sad am I), that our support is loud so why would we be jealous of 7,000 people getting wet watching hoofball on a quagmire, in a sh1t stadium when we regularly have over 20,000 enjoying Championship football, on a bowling green, in luxury?

  21. live in Portishead and was sat opposite Matty with his partner in Costa on the Marina Saturday morning after Sheffield United game around 11.30am he was drinking a Americano, seemed very relaxed, told him he made a difference coming on last night and wished him all the best for the rest of the season, he smile and said thanks.

  22. I used to work with a gashead, who’s son got suspended from school. The teachers asked the kids what their dad likes to do in his spare time, so he stood up infront of the class and said “my dad likes to go up the downs, dressed in women’s lingerie, then he follows men into the bushes and pleasures them for money” The very unimpressed, shocked & concerned teacher ordered him straight from the classroom and, outside, asked if what he’d said was true..? “No Miss” said the young lad. “He’s a Bristol Rovers season ticket holder, but I was too embarrassed to tell the class that!”

  30. Personally can't think of many youngsters attracted by the underdog appeal, they want to support winners, hence the Barca and Manchester shirts that proliferate. Also he seems to be stuck in the idea that kids only turn up for the football, the idea that they would choose to go to a ground with no facilities, over the gate is laughable. Maybe he hasn't seen it and has no idea how far ahead we are in standards?

  33. Don't forget the 40,000 they took to Wembley. You know. That 40,000 - the 40,000 who all travelled and attended a game with only about 30,000 in attendance.

  34. That was indeed the one. However the Gashead here has overlooked the fact that 5 parents equal one child. And all 6 of them live in the same house as they're all related.

  36. Lets not forget the barren landscape of old industrial Avonmouth; looking at Red Raw's posting of that brilliant map below we can safely say that those chemical complexes of Avonmouth are Gas lands. Literally and figuratively. They do like living up to their name it seems. I notice there is a Zinc Road, The Esso Terminal, a Household waste centre and even Portable Toilets Ltd off St Andrews Road so now we know. Not a single City season ticket holder in that wasteland; its all Gas.

  39. I’ll never tire at digging this visual out from the stadium planning docs of 2009......shows location of season ticket holders around Bristol. Quite clearly we are everywhere including massive numbers in the so say gas areas! Taking into account our season ticket numbers have gone up by about 40% since then, I’d confidently say the city is ours.

  43. This is the particularly funny and ironic part of the interview. Credit to some of the Gas fans for flagging up his mistake on the gasheads.org forum. As PRESIDENT of Bristol Rovers, Wael Al-Qadi should know that that FFP does not apply to League 1 clubs. Instead, they (like other L1 clubs) adhere to the Salary Cost Management Protocol (SCMP). This is a Financial Fair Play framework but rather importantly, owners can invest as much money in their club as they choose. Such investment is not permitted by FFP in the Championship hence the reason Steve Lansdown is trying to build the

  45. Terrible bloody things. I can well remember on more than one occasion in my youth, being told the next day - you should have seen yourself last night, you were in a right state and did <insert drunken behaviour here>. Thankfully, I could deny it ever happening as I had no memory of it and by the end of the next night, someone else was wrecked and the talk of the next days lunchtime session..... I am so glad there are no videos, or even photos from those days........
