  1. Brilliant initiative this. Well done Blagdon and everybody involved
  2. How soundwaves ‘behave’ and how sound is heard changes based on environmental factors - such as the number of people in the crowd. It would be impossible to replicate the environment of a near-full stadium in pre-season. That said, I don’t know why it’s taken this many years to fix. Hope they get it sorted.
  3. My understanding is that players effectively sign three contracts too. One for the Championship, one for the Prem and one for League One Im sure the overall package compares favourably and a whole lot more so on the Prem one
  4. This is spot on. We’ve tried - and largely failed - to be successful. The Rovers, they’ve never really tried at all. What have they ever actually done? Better to die trying in my opinion. If they want to wax lyrical about the Tote End, Twerton, terraces, underdog spirit etc then fair enough but it’s just pining for a football world that is long gone.
  5. We’re signing them to long contracts - a risk that other clubs won’t take - and stuffing their mouths with big signing on golden hellos I would imagine. Would explain apparent “pay cuts”.
  6. I did the Temple Meads tunnels in 2016. I’m not sure what I was expecting but I have to say you’re not missing anything special if you don’t get tickets.
  7. Wow Another stat I enjoy is that when Bristol Rovers were last above us in the league, Bill Clinton was US president!
  8. The thing with O’Driscoll was that he didn’t live in the moment. Nobody wants to hear about five pillars and cosmic strategies for the future when you’re 23rd in League One losing game after game. The worst manager I’ve seen down there.
  9. The reviews of the Alpha Guest House on Coronation Road are the funniest and most terrifying I have seen: https://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Hotel_Review-g186220-d211056-Reviews-Alpha_Guest_House-Bristol_England.html?m=19905
  10. I’m normally one to say don’t get carried away, but I love the positivity of this!
  11. He was released by Chelsea’s Academy and thereafter signed his first professional contract with City. Can’t be classed as a transfer between clubs. https://www.google.ae/amp/s/www.bristolpost.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/whatever-happened-ex-bristol-city-2104742.amp
  12. The Bristol Rovers “Official Historian” ladies and gentleman... What an ignorant twit. Maybe he should stick to writing about the Gas? They are going to the dogs and will soon be a footnote to history anyway...
  13. Cheers Dave, very interesting So it was Bob not Bill Shankly. His brother!
  14. Keep it on the main forum. Whether it’s youngsters, disabled teams, or Bristol City Women FC, they are all representing this great club. And the more exposure they get the better. The way discussion of the women’s game regularly descends into sexism is embarrassing to be honest. You don’t have to actively support them but they are part of our Club.
