  1. This is a thread about r****s. Do try and keep up. Please feel free to start your own threads on those other teams if you wish. Your diluting this one with your agenda. Kindly move along Stevo
  2. Actual attendance from a creditable source BBC Website Birmingham City v Bristol r*****s Tuesday 14th Jan St Andrews - quoted away attendance 2,358 Apply Gassy A.R.S.E factor now 3000
  3. I call it the Gassy A.R.S.E factor. (Adjustment Required Supporting Exaggeration) Take any of their attendances, apply the Gassy A.R.S.E. factor and hey presto, you have an attendance higher than the actual. Example. Find out the actual attendance from a creditable source, say SkySports news. Bristol Rovers vs Crawley Town 7:45pm Tuesday 15th November The Memorial Stadium (Att: 3676) Now apply the Gassy A.R.S.E and its now over 5000!
  4. I was one of them. First and only time I have left the ground at half time
  5. Let's call it: Adjustment Required Supporting Exaggeration
  6. Two g*s heads walking down the Gloucester Rd one day. They come across a Chemist with a sign in the window. It says "Spend more than 30 quid and get a free Season Ticket for Bristol Rovers"!!! Well one of the lads jumped at the chance, and in he went. He goes up to the beautiful dispensary girl and asks for Hemorrhoid cream. He says every time he sneezes they hurt so bad he feels like he is going to break in two. That's 11 pounds she says. Ok, do you have anything for genital itching? Yes we have this cream, apply 3 times a day to the affected area. That's great, my under carriage is red raw and very uncomfortable he says. 12 pounds. Lastly I have this wart. Its right on my sack. It gets bigger by the week. OK she says, I have this Wart Freezer. I take it he says. How much. That's 14 pounds. After he pays he goes outside to his mate, who excitedly asked, did you get the season ticket!! Lad said nah I was too embarrassed to ask.
  7. I saw this and thought of this thread. Business idea no 1. Instead of r*****s fans standing under one tent. They could have their own individual one!
  8. I did have a chuckle to myself yesterday. A r*****s fan called into Radio Bristol, saying he hoped Sam Allerdyce was at the game. He said if he was and watched Jermaine Easter he would play for England!!! Erm.... he is Welsh mate! Funny
  9. Good point. I am sure it will be stuck in draw someplace. Wally will come up with an excuse as to why "its the wrong transfer window to do business". They will lap it up as financial prudence, and the sensible thing to do. They will be mugged again and defend it. Stevo
  10. Same. I flew from Canada for it. Long journey home
  11. I actually did "Laugh Out Loud"....and still am!
  12. No. But surely you would want a statement of intent, backed with something financial. A marquee signing? Any signing. You cannot be happy at the last transfer window. It was an opportunity to display to the fans, exactly the type club he wants to own. He could have shown you the financial clout you all believe he has. He didn't back his manager at all. I am sure DC came to him with a list of players he wanted to buy. That must of been a very uneasy conversation between the two of them. The clock is ticking.
  13. Read it. Its all smoke and mirrors with them. Nothing concrete. Nothing happening. A consultation here, a consultation there. They talk an awful lot, but nothing actually happens. Yet the blue few all believe they are on the brink of a new dawn. Mate of mine, says and I quote "He is not going to throw money at the team. Its all about the infrastructure and getting things right off the pitch first." I was to assume he meant the training pitch, the ground and the academy. All of which as we know, are at the consultative stage. Maybe Wael should change his name to the "conSultan of Bristol"
  14. Hello all Long shot, but looking for the following swap Needed 2 x FA cup Tickets. United End if poss. Will swap England V Slovakia 2 x Cat 3 PM if you can help. Thanks Stevo
  15. From non league football to Division III in two seasons. Let that sink in. Achievement? No, not for me. They should not even be thinking of us. But they are. We have vastly different agendas. The advancement of footballing infrastructure is a key element to success, however not binding. We have redeveloped Ashton Gate into facility capable of matching our ambition. With SL we have a benefactor that has significancly backed this club. His track record of investment is undeniable. They have or have to build a car park. I almost don't understand that. Their owner, at best is a complete unknown quantity. The proof is in the desire to move forward. We have. We are operating at different spectrum to them. We are now a fully functioning Championship side. With a season under our belts, the knowledge and experience gained the last 12 months have been invaluable. The addition of Mark Ashton is key to our progression. He will be the single focal point of our summer. What in terms of personnel do they have? Do they have the foggiest idea of what they are up against. For all of your posturing today and running around your ground shouting "were coming for you...." Your light years away. The gulf is huge. We are now an outfit capable. You might get lucky. You did today. But in this day and age you need sustainable growth. You well might be in league 1 for years, not an easy league. For me the following is key. See what your new man is all about. Money. Investment. New ground. Recruitment. Academy. Attendances. Then I might look over my shoulder. Stevo
  16. Couple of points to make. Firstly, FFP has to be mentioned here. They simply cannot just come in a build a team full of million pound players. Secondly, I use the analogy of a used car sales man (Higgs). Up drives a brand new Ferrari out jumps (Al-Qadi) and starts sniffing round an MkII Ford Escort, that Higgs just put on the lot this morning, with no price. I am interested, as Al-Qadi, how much. Well Higgs knows its only worth a few hundred at best. MOT needed and the interior is shocking. The engine is shot and needs 4 new tires. $1000 says Higgs, sold says Al-Qadi. Why oh why would the owner of a Ferrari buy a beaten up old escort. There is only so much he can do with it. Its a pile of crap and no amount of money is going to change it. For me, we are competing against 91 other league clubs, either directly or indirectly. They are just another one. I think promotion to the Championship was a massive reality check for us and despite our billionaire owner have found it hard. They will if they get there no doubt experience the same thing. If their ownership brings them success, I hope it spurs on our club to greater things. We need a partizan Bristol, everyone chooses a side and I am confident we will be just fine. Stevo
