  1. If only someone would put all the posts about the gas in one thread and name it in such a way that you could ignore it, whilst those who are interested can carry on unabated.

  2. Me too. In 2011 I spoke to William Hill and asked them to give me odds for the Gas to stay up when they were in a similar position. Managed to get 5/1 (admittedly I think Gas were actually bottom of the table and a point or two further adrift but still in touch of 5th from bottom). Best £100 I’ve ever lost Ahh, then this thread isn’t for you. Off you pop, good lad.

  6. In awe of: Their subscription to Babestation A ground with more tents than Billy Smart's Circus Getting relegated to Non League Not only that but getting relegated to Non League by a side playing in your own away strip Appointing a Manager who could well be leaving them in a few months at Her Majesty's Pleasure Being able to purchase fake drinks and out of date food in the concourse An anthem that glorifies a "relationship" with an underage girl Losing the Manager who had them in their highest league placing for years to Mansfield Watching football with around 6,000 fans in the ground A team who play in a Tesco Carrier Bag strip I could go on but it will infuriate you even more.............. Bollocks to it, a club who have been promised a ground since 1965, the latest only weeks away from completion I believe........ A record signing of around £365K now known in the Oxford Dictionary as a "Tilson" (probably) Wetting myself over a billionaire owner and then finding out it's actually a billionaire "family"....................Unlucky Da Shit Yep, they're ******* brilliant and I'm jealous as ****. When reading the above just consider for one second that not everyone takes life seriously 24/7 (to the benefit of their mental health in modern speak) and likes to have a bit of fun which, for many football supporters, includes a wind-up or two at their rivals expense from time to time. It's not hurting anyone, it's not one-sided and it occurs in every area of the country where you have football clubs in very close proximity. For Tarquin the University Student that has decided to support City or Rovers just to have a football club to support whilst they are in Bristol they probably don't see a rivalry. For those of us growing up in places like Bedminster, Ashton, Bemmy Down, Hartcliffe, Withywood, Shirehampton, Lawrence Weston, Southmead, Lockleaze, Knowle West, Horfield, Bishopston, Easton, Fishponds, Kingswood and many other areas in Bristol and the surrounding areas there most definitely is and always has been a rivalry. If it's not for you just ignore the thread rather than trying to force your views on people, saying we have "no right" to enjoy a bit of rivalry and acting like you have some sort of superior intelligence and/or moral fibre. It's not doing you any favours tbh.

  7. If you think that I’m not going to mercilessly rub their noses in it IF they get relegated just because we lost to Rotherham in a division they haven’t been in for 3 decades then you’re very much mistaken mate.

  9. There is just too much history between some of us on here and Rovers fans, which is why some on here just don’t get it. I ain’t gonna bother listing the incidents as most will know what I am on about on here. Fact is they hate us and we (most of us) hate them more. They can **** off to Div 2 and stay there as far as I am concerned. That is where those stinking Horfield whores belong. End off .....

  14. He is the same age as Owura Edwards I don't see anyone clamouring that he's not good enough or needs a move away from the club. People don't realise how much he still can develop. I see him as someone not ready to start just yet but knocking on the door. People don't realise how young 19 is, I saw Vardy talking about how mentally he wasn't ready for competitive football until 22. Special talent in the making, back him.

  15. Oh you are all are in love with him, aren't you! As a Bristolian who remembers some cracking local derbies with the Gas at home and away. I'm a City supporter but that doesn't mean I want them to sink into the Fourth Tier. I'd rather they were in the same league as us, giving us an extra incentive to remain as Bristol's best. So for me, I'd like to see them stuff Sunderland and their manager this evening.

  21. I know lockdown has curtailed most of our regular activities, but oh what a humdrum life you must lead if that's the best fun you've had in "ages", I'm not seeing bites, I'm seeing a lot of people convincingly arguing with you why the schadenfreude against Rovers is all part and parcel of being City fans. Your point that "Rovers aren't our rivals any more" doesn't stand up. Just because they are in a different division than us, hatred for them doesn't wax and wane with their league position. When we were sweeping all before us in League One and they were losing to Bath in the FA Trophy and Braintree in the non-league we were as far apart as we've ever been and the "non-league" thread was absolute gold. They'll always be our #1 enemy, and although t's unlikely things can change extremely quickly in terms of rival clubs' fortunes - I know it's going back a long way but in 1986 Oxford won the league cup while Swindon were in the Fourth Division. A few short years later Swindon overtook them. You never know what could happen unfortunately. They've done a lot to justify our hatred for them too, from their 1982 escapades to trying to paint our fanbase as all hooligan devils incarnate, while they are complete saints. Just two examples off the top of my head. Just because they are crap at football doesn't mean they aren't objectionable. When a Gashead accuses me of being obsessed with them, I am happy to own it. My response is along the lies of "Yep, guilty, I hate your putrid club." Doesn't mean I necessarily hate all individual Gasheads. A few of them I know, like and admire. I suspect most City fans would disgaree with you. As Peter said, if you don't want to read anti-Gash stuff then avoid this thread. The whole point of it coming into being was so it could be concentrated into one place and not spread all over the forum. If your game is you think you are winding people up then crack on my friend but people replying to you does not = a successful fishing trip.

  22. This is my favourite thread on here . I despise Bristol Rovers football club. Especially after growing up in and going to school in kingswood in the 80s. A good few playground battles. And over the years there have been many incidents from them that enforces my dislike for them. Because they are so shit and we haven’t played them for so long in the league doesn’t stop me from despising them. But they are also now a funny little club I love to laugh at too. And how they deliver . I’m pretty sure the feeling is mutual from them and if roles were reversed I would expect the same. Maybe it’s a age thing as our younger fan base haven’t experienced a Bristol derby in the league. But for me I will continue with my childish piss taking sometimes direct posts. Hope they go bust **** the gas. OTIB

  23. I wonder if the same people who accused the English FA of having a jingoistic vendetta against Sepp Blatter and that the world of football does not begin and end in this country will now freely admit that they got it wrong and that Blatter is a bent bastard who should never have been anywhere near running football and that some people at the English FA bloody well knew it even if they couldn't see it? And before people start, he got judged/sentenced by FIFA not the Daily Mail!!!!!

  24. I think the obsession case was put to bed by the Villa fans who attended the Mem. <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/VW9N0OiSxq8" title="YouTube video player" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; clipboard-write; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen></iframe> They have always believed that City are delusional and up themselves when in fact it all comes down to their own inferiority complex and envy. I guess we are in awe of how they continuously embarrass themselves and provide hours, days, months and years of material that we can utilise to take the piss out of them with consummate ease. They’re always hard done by, try to have cringeworthy love-ins with Man City and Sunderland, celebrate staying up only to get relegated out of the football league the very next week and do you know what the worst thing about Gasheads is?....They can’t wait to dish it out, but as soon as you give it back they can’t take it and throw all their teddies out of the pram. We know they HATE having the piss taken out of them so much that it causes them to have a meltdown / turn violent and so that is the exact reason why we do it. If they didn’t constantly bleat on about going one better than ‘da shit’ we could end this thread tomorrow, but no, they only have themselves to blame. Absolute belters the ******* lot of them!

  26. People actually forgetting these are youngsters actually holding their own in the championship ffs. Careful what you wish for. Wasn’t long ago we were bottom of league one and we’re dreaming of this scenario. The fact that we have numerous young player around the age of 20 or less actually capable of playing in this league (Which btw is one of the toughest and best supported leagues in the world) is a massive thing And shows the progress we have made as a club. We’ve bought a youngster from Monaco with champions league experience ffs. Give the lad time to develop. Tbh he will reach heights far beyond this club.

  30. The cr*p we went through in 1982, my school days putting up with a majority of gas 'friends'. Girlfriends who supported the Gas. Family who never went to watch the Gas but revelled in them beating us (w*nkers). This is all for them

  32. Of course..but these fixtures just don't happen anymore, and if as many do, want them to fold, they never will. Suppose I can take the laid back view over them, because I moved from Bristol when I was 16, but never lost the passion for City, never will. The rivalry at school was massive, but my sister married a gas head, and to be honest I used to go to Eastville with him and his mates, but never wanting a gas win. But he used to come with me to the Gate too, and those Wembley finals too, he always, he said wanted a City win. Those days at Eastville, and AG were massive local derbies, and I am glad I have those memories, some fantastic players, Harold Jarman, Alfie Biggs, Big John, brilliant. Anyway thanks for all the bites, best fun I have had for ages.

  33. For the younger generations rovers are nothing and cant possibly get under our skin. They are a laughing stock and every now and then bring up some ridiculous notion that makes them better than us. Secondly I dont see how slating your rivals prevents us from moving forward ? Thirdly I belive the bristol folk you are referring to laughed in our faces after our demise that nearly led to being out of business. Finally why does it matter how much we take the piss out of them?

  34. That's semantics really. The biggest demand for tickets in a season would come in a game where we were playing the Rovers. That would be the most important game of the season for us. We have competitors within the Championship but there is only one genuine rivalry for City and it isn't with Cardiff, Swindon, or Plymouth.

  35. Our home form is diabolical, our away form clearly isn't diabolical under Pearson whereas the Few are just diabolical full stop. Those six teams at the bottom of League 1 would struggle to reach 10 points if you put them in the Championship and that's not an exaggeration (I accept we are talking different budgets entirely for most of those sides but the Fewers wage budget seems to at least be on a par with Wycombe and not hugely below Rotherham). It's good, old fashioned rivalry and they aren't shy in dishing it out and when you add the complete delusion, lies and hypocrisy (a.k.a. #gaslogic) that gets spouted over there they deserve everything they get from us!!

  36. We're playing very slightly better as well. And not too bad a run-in. I think we've got half a chance of getting ourselves out of the shit again. Unfortunately - for the Dons - I think Northampton are going to do better than the rest of the following pack and are more likely to pull themselves out of it. Whether one or, fingers crossed, both of us - Dons and Cobblers - get out of the relegation zone, it's obviously bad news for Rovers.

  37. Lots of things get said on here... mostly by people who have spoken to a steward who doubles up as a board member and football agent. Repeat the claim 4 times on OTIB and it then becomes fact. Granted, there are probably a few people who are in the know, but I'd imagine they are far too discrete to say what it is they do know. I would imagine most people don't accurately know what their colleagues earn, let along the salaries of another company.

  38. 2001, 2011, 2021. We were doomed to have an awful team and these kind of decisions. Even the rearrangement of this fixture in the first place seems like fate. The question is, who cursed us? A shithead no doubt. Come on own up. Who’s be dancing around the garden in nothing more than a Red and White bobble hat putting spells on the gas?

  42. If you're knocking Baker's availability, it's a little off the mark. It's 92 in the last 3 seasons(4 including this year). 130 if you include the loan spell. One of those seasons he was dropped due to Webster/Kalas partnership and last season he was dropped for a few games, so in terms of availability he's been available around 40 games a season or more, over his previous 4 years here. This season is obviously unlucky, it's the first major injury layoff he's had and given it wasn't a pre-existing issue and the other injury problems we've had it would be unfair to blame Baker. He's been a solid performer for us except for a couple of occasions going off early because he's full blooded (something we all moan is missing when he isnt playing). He's justified his salary more than a lot I could think of
