  1. General ignorance here - what's the cause? IMO Identity anything (support, politics ect) is a bad idea, we should be looking to support everyone not just people that identify themselves as a group that needs special treatment. You say it won't do harm but IMO its provoking a never ending "my identity group is more important and should have special rules/rights/equality of outcomes" type attitude which I believe is dangerous.

  2. Hard to feel any sympathy - in the depths of our despair in 1982 they cried like babies when the local council offered us financial support - so the offer was withdrawn, then they tried to steal Ashton Gate when we were at our most vulnerable...pretty despicable behaviour from a club that likes to portray itself as the most popular in Bristol, loved around the world with ever so loyal and few (sorry, true) supporters...

  3. I'm old enough to remember (watched Atyeo, yada, yada, yada) and imo you are utterly wrong. Their success, or lack of it, has absolutely no positive upside for Bristol City. Never has; never will. Local derbies aren't all that special; watching City beat ManU was far more pleasurable. Imo. Btw I've been on this forum for many years and some may say made far too many posts but I've never found a need to suggest, as you have, that another forum member is 'stupid' because they have a contrary opinion. You told us yesterday on your "final statement on this subject" that your age and longevity

  5. I was replaying to you saying that Bristol football is in the doldrums, I was just pointing out that, historically, we are a long way from being in the doldrums, and the fact that the fewers are is irrelevant to us (and Bristol football in general IMO). It is rubbish to claim that them doing well makes us do better, there is no correlation whatsoever when comparing charts of our league history and theirs. I'm not frightened of anything, this is football, nothing to be scared of. I just don't want the fewers hanging around like a bad smell.

  7. I’m pretty sure that everyone across the footballing world has picked up this rivalry, whilst looking out for their second teams results. I was only in Milan last week, in a bar by the San Siro, and when I got chatting to the locals and proclaimed that I was from Bristol, they all immediately joked that it was lucky that they were not Barnet fans..! There they were in full voice, blasting out a chorus of Goodnight Irene, until I informed them that I was a City fan, not Rovers. They had never heard of us, obviously.

  8. Half of my family are fewers, and I’d piss myself if the Sags disappeared, personal past experiences with their supporters make me despise them. Sooner they to$$ers go bust the better for football.

  9. Our most successful season for decades occurred whilst they were in Non League. Before Rovers had even joined the Football League we had finished runners up in the top flight and been FA Cup Finalists...since then? Whilst Rovers were fighting for a L1 play off position a couple of years back we were flirting with Relegation in the Championship in a season that included our worst ever run of defeats. The vast majority of League Bristol Derbies have taken place in the 3rd division. Wheres the evidence that Bristol Rovers exceeding their potential or at least competing in the same

  14. Will never understand the people who say we need them to push us on, like shit do we. They are shit and always will be unless an actual billionaire takes them over then they have no hope. The fewers like to point out that there is ‘only’ 1 division between us, but we are quite literally light years ahead of them, just like Man City are to us but they won’t admit that will they. As a fair few of us have been saying pretty much since Wally took over they should be VERY worried, last nights radio interview confirmed it as such, yet they won’t do F’All about it, get Wally to say we’re i

  18. Don’t think out squad would be far off the playoff if utilised correctly. I have always thought with a solid 4231 we could perhaps still play like LJ wants to. Two holding midfielders to cover the two wingbacks. Two footballing CBs. Then just have to sort out a front 4 and Eliasson, Brownhill, Paterson, and Weimann are all good starts to the 3 behind the striker. In that perhaps missing a good holding midfielder and striker from being a threat for playoffs imo. Fun to think about but won’t happen

  19. Once again I find myself concurring with you POHH, "the voice of reason" I couldn't care less if we never played them again such is the gulf between the teams both on and off the pitch. I don't buy this "if we do well, you do well" at all. The gulf is so wide; an example of that is last season's League Cup Semi Final, did that spur them on, I don't think so, all you had was some small minded sag bleating on national radio about the other team in Bristol, which made him and his club look very stupid indeed. Similarly, if they do well in the Checkatrade Cup will that have any bear

  21. I have said on more than one occasion, there was more than a touch of the Michael Knighton's about the young Wael. That embarrassing mingling with the fans, being carried down Glouc's road , he just lapped up the adoration . All bluff , no substance. My gAss mate has started calling for Clark's head, thing is who could have done any better under the circumstances? Didn't they send their No.1 keeper out on loan, then sell 2/3 of their better players replacing them with freebees . Put Pep in charge under those restrictions and he'd struggle. If it was anyone else, I'd probably feel sorr

  22. How the Hell can anyone have a reasonable discussion when the other uses such negative language such as 'fewers' and hanging around like a bad smell? We are talking about Bristol Rovers, perhaps you might have relatives friends who support them and perfectly level headed reasonable folk who don't deserve to have their team go under. In fact your sort of rhetoric only serves to convince me that you are either stupid or just 'fishing' for 'likes' either way you have succeeded. I have looked up the number of times we have played them since the beginning of time, and as expected we come out

  26. I think we'd agree on that for sure. But the fact it is a sad thing something is considered necessary says a lot about a much wider social issue than football alone. I'd much rather live in a world where it wasn't necessary to take steps to make LGBT people, or any other marginalised group, to feel accepted at a mainstream event. In and of itself, perhaps not. But it sends a clear message that football teams and football clubs don't want homophobia in their grounds and that has to be a start.

  30. Probably the best attempt we’ve seen yet. Nice one. Definitely the direction I would go in terms of clean and simple rather than cluttered. For me I’d probably tidy it up further by removing the year altogether (stops the never ending 94 v 97 argument (which will only ever end one way!) and cleans it up again. Then raise the bridge bit so the robins head doesn’t overlap it. I’d be keen to see a version without the Bristol City text too and see whether you could ever imagine it being synonymous with the club without having to be spelled out. Cracking effort though.

  35. So, because he's meandered his way through a load of inane, name dropping anecdotes on a reality TV show you'd forget the dodgy financial dealings, the clubs he's nearly sent bust and indeed his recent disastrous reign at Birmingham? Are you that desperate to see Nico Kranjcar play at Ashton Gate? Give me strength.

  36. And once again, in 'no-blame snowflake Britain' - it's not the parents fault...... The state bears no responsibility to be a parent. Every British child won the post-code lottery. Free education for 18 yrs Free health care (inc mental health) Etc etc The country has done it's bit. How about parents remember to teach their children right from wrong? 95% of the rest of the world's parents would kill to give their children the chance they have in "The West" The amount of parents who abdicate all responsibility for the child they created is appalling.

  37. I was there last night and, as others have said, the formal Q&A was not that informative, but the "afterchat" was good. LJ can certainly talk and talk about tactics, statistics, psychology etc. but he seems to make everything too complicated. If he was a Prem. manager where the players are smarter, fitter and faster, I can see that that management style might work, but in my opinion, the players who we can afford aren't savvy enough for this type of management and seemed confused at times. I was always told that football is a simple game, get the ball in your opponents half and stick it on

  41. FFS! This sums up some of the suggestions & opinions you get on this forum, perfectly..! Do people not think to consider what they are about to post, before they start a thread, suggesting a new manager, even though we aren’t in the market for one. So because some likeable old chap on a reality tv show was once a successful manager (ignoring the damage that he’s caused many of his previous clubs) he tells a few anicdotes about his career, and, based on that, you’d welcome him as Manager of our club...?! Jesus wept..!

  45. And this is the problem right here. We have a portion of this club obsessed to the 'N'th degree about biometrics , grass cambers, % effect of a ball slowing per mm of rain etc etc - and that's fine. But when this is conveyed to players, a lot of whom, through no fault of their own, are not especially bright, struggle. They struggle to understand the relevance, and switch off. A case in point was Matthews. How could a grown man, and a professional athlete not understand sugar caused weight gain, and that coca-cola was full of sugar? That is basic stu

  47. The case study thing is true, I won’t go into to much but a mate who coaches for West Brom was telling me that Lloyd is someone that has been used as a case study to do with physical growth. The case study revolves around how he was the best football in his age group over a number of years and then he had a massive growth spurt and his game went downhill to such an extent that he could have been let go. City stuck with him believing that his game needed to catch up with the growth spurt he’d been through and luckily he came through. I think other coaches in the game are looking at Lloyd’
