  1. There are obvious reasons why we have no sympathy for Rovers stadium issues but they probably run deeper than you think. Rovers tried (and failed) to hammer the final nail in our coffin in 1982 by acquiring our stadium. Also, objecting to the potential financial help offered from the Local Authorities was a nice touch. Ask Bristol Rugby fans if they have sympathy for Rovers stadium problems after the way they lost their spiritual home to the Gas. Rovers refused to support a bid for Bristol to become a World Cup venue if England had won the right to host the tournament in 2018? A bid that would’ve greatly helped our own new stadium plans at Ashton Vale. Their fans were already busy trying to sabotage these plans by setting up petitions against the new stadium for various bullshit reasons. This is all just for balance, not that I would expect you to have an opinion on any of it. Personally I think they’ve now got the ground and manager their club and fans deserve.

I'm systematic. I like to be considered in my judgements and I like us to work professionally." And one for you Brent fans out there.... “That’s fine. We are where we are right now. We’ll build the aeroplane while we’re in flight, as someone once said."

  5. We have several Swindle fans that come on here and I don't think we have much issue with them. There has never been a great rivalry between us, despite some of their players apparently trying to create one. But for some reason there has always been a lot of aggro between them and the Gas, so you might be able to see why @Shaun Taylor likes posting in this thread. Personally I have found his take on the demise of Lee Power and how the club are making a recovery quite interesting. I would have thought a Brighton fan with your not to distant history would do too.

  7. Not really. He generally comes on here, derides Rovers (which obviously gets lapped up) and throws in titbits about how wonderful his own club's support is (usually by throwing in more arse-licking comments about how nevertheless it isn't a patch on City's support, of course). He's a boring, arse-licking bell-end.

  14. Don't you mean 'stolen'? Who'd have thought a clause could be inserted without the knowledge or veto of club members or the remainder of the Board that effectively and shortly thereafter gave the once tenant the right to purchase the asset for a nominal coin? The clause inserted by a director who shortly thereafter cut ties with the club. The Gas deserve to rot.

  17. I mean when you consider the solidarity payment in 18/19 was £4.6m for championship clubs and only £700,000 for league one and the TV revenue as well they missed out on a lot of money and given covid has impacted every club financially just imagine what that money would do for a club like Wycombe.

  18. Decent listen. Ian definitely has a bit of the Mark Ashton’s about him. Certainly loves his own voice. His under the breath “ffs” comment around 15 minutes in when one of the other fellas was getting his point across was unnecessary. Certainly thinks a lot of himself.

  20. "A third foot injury in the squad has prompted Bristol Rovers to investigate the training pitches at The Quarters. Mark Hughes is the latest player to suffer problems, missing Saturday's defeat to Leyton Orient with a sore Achilles. He follows Anssi Jaakkola (Achilles) and Josh Grant (plantar fascia) in picking up wear and tear in his foot since the training ground opened 11 months ago. Both Jaakkola and Grant have had long-running ailments." (Six fingers and now three feet?)

  21. A season before that again 1990-91 always reminds me about how wonderful the Geordie's are about how they are football fanatics and support through thick and thin. Home game City won 1-0 gate 15,858 In the return game 0-0 with only 13,758. Thirteen thousand not fifty three thousand. Wonderful and loyal. Ha ha! PS we finished two places above them.

  24. As someone later points out, because it's so obviously a troll post: "Guaranteed to add another 20 pages on OTIB" But I bet he wasn't expecting it to be because of a post from OTIB's resident arse-licking Swindon fan. Your posts on here are the cringiest, most bumlicking posts I've ever seen on any football forum ever.

  36. Chris Hughton is a good manager, if given the time to build a team. Living in Brighton I have watched what he did there, a lot like what NP is doing for us. He took over Brighton in a poor position and played negative football but hard to beat, a transfer window in and he was allowed to build a Brighton side that was now playing good football and play off contenders and eventually promotion. This was with the backing of the owner, Tony Bloom, he's not been given that chance at forest to build a team with the support of the owners. NP is doing this now at City, it takes time but I can see the same sort of building at City under NP that I watched at Brighton with Hughton.

  38. The issue will be to what extent did Derby covered up their situation and were there any laws/rules broken. The corporate veil is notoriously hard to breach, but administration drives a double decker bus through that. Lots of people could noe have lots of law suits against lots of entities and people. EFL have a problem if they can’t reasonably show they followed their procedures and policies correctly. However the fact DCFC went belly up so quickly after the season started is a problem for both. AND ITS ALWAYS ABOUT THE MONEY! Irrelevant to the issue I would contend. Always an issue. But sometimes things can only be sorted by a judge. That’s why we have them. Derby is the basket case to end all Basket cases. I feel for the fans, but not the owners and board of the ground and the club. Supporters are odd by nature. So many thinking that all this is somehow personal to them and want to man the barricades with the very idiots that put them there.

  40. It’s unfortunate that the EFL didn’t take the appropriate action against Derby at the end of last season. They themselves admitted that the fixture at the start of the season was interchangeable! However Derby continued to to stall to their accounts submission and once again the EFL failed to lay down any punishment. I agree money has a lot to do with this but action should have been taken against Derby prior to this. I have a great deal of sympathy for Wycombe and feel they do have a case for some sort of compensation

  43. Just another level of incompetence ; No electronic subs board for the Gas .Billy Smart’s at the Mem . Story from the post site. No electronic board in Bristol It’s now seemingly commonplace to have a digital subs board even in the lower tiers of non-league football, but for whatever reason, one was absent from the game on Saturday. At first, it wasn’t noticeable as no subs needed to be made in the opening 45 minutes, and due to the scuffle between the two teams at the end of the first half, no one really paid any attention to how many minutes were added on until it was announced over the PA system. Harvey Saunders introduction for the start of the second half then made it clear that a substitution board was nowhere to be seen and due to it being from the start of the half no Rovers player ran over to the touchline. And due to the lack of clarification, completely incorrect information was passed onto stadium announcer Lance Cook who unnecessarily took the brunt of an error that was out of his control. It became apparent soon that the fourth official was actually holding up his fingers as a way of communication which player was coming off, understandably causing some confusion on the terraces.

  45. There’s a bigger picture issue, too. Garner had a dreadful record but his clear plan was to sign loads of players in their early 20s who had been let go by the likes of Palace & Fulham & try to produce a team that still had time on its side to improve. This plan also had the bonus that should one of them do so well & attract the attention of a side up the pyramid then they’d get some funds to improve the squad. This is a coherent strategy. Barton on the other hand has signed 36 & 37 year olds who were without clubs (& in the case of Leon Clarke, who had 2 hamstring injuries last season & a back operation), plus a load of 30 something ex-Fleetwood players (or Scousers), there is no plan, no possibility these players are anything but on their way down. It is absolutely incredible that Wael has indulged him to bring in 20 players & massively increase the age profile & presumably wage bill. They are in huge trouble, I’m delighted to say.
