  1. He came to us with little fanfare, an out of the blue signing from Donny and yet he's held his own in a number of positions on the pitch and always put in a shift. A good, hard working squad player. I think his contract is up at the end of this season but I'd certainly not object to giving him another year.
  2. @Davefevs the whole "osiblings" thing actually makes me cringe every time its said. I love OSIB but if there is one thing I genuinely hate about it (and it's only a tiny thing) is that osibilngs tag. @Shtanleystop it, just stop. As for the rest of this weeks OSIB. Quality as always and the Dave Morrell interview was brilliant. The barely disguised contempt for LJ was quite funny. It was the things that weren't said as much as the things that were. The LJ conversation on Jose discussed from the Independant article was funny and we all know that LJ's comments in that article w
  3. Hilarious isn't it. Joe never says that it's on a par with NLBR he just says he cried with joy and lists the last two times that he did that. He also says it's the best night of his life. Not the second best or equal best but the best night.
  4. ******* hilarious that they spent the best part of 10 years shitting on Bristol Rugby at every twist and turn including stealing the Mem out from under their feet and then have the audacity to complain when they start doing well after the club had to move to survive. And as for the sad ***** that claim they were Bris through and through until they moved to the Gate, **** them. If they can't look beyond that to see the team then Bris doesn't need their support anyway. Joe Joyce walks on Cider. As usual for the average sag it's a pint of bitter and twisted.
  5. That's Geoff's dad that is. Twentyman senior.
  6. 4 games, 4 defeats and a minus 19 goal difference (with 10 minutes left of this game) It's clear that the City women's team lags badly in the support that other parts of Bristol Sport have enjoyed. A serious overhaul is needed on and off the pitch to keep up with the rest of the WSL. It's almost certain at the moment that the Ladies side will be welcoming the likes of Keynsham and MK Don's to Twerton next season. If crowds come back to football, how many potential fans are going to drive from Bristol to Bath to watch a Women's National League South Game? Not many I'd bet.
  7. I still hate the name but I bloody love the game. Pat Lam is awesome. Bris were great tonight to keep sticking at it and getting the results. How bloody typical to have spent years watching Bris through thick and thin in the sodding championship and we finally taste success and it's in empty (or almost empty stadiums).
  8. But according to this article..... https://www.theleaguepaper.com/latest-news/football-league-division-two/4177/bristol-rovers-taken-over-by-billionaire-jordanians/
  9. Another issue for the Barcelona of League 1 is that in fumes gone by, a sponsor would often mirror some sort of deal between the two clubs. Dry Blackthorn for example sponsored our shirts and also had a deal at the Blu Camp as well to avoid losing revenue. Clearly their fan base is now deemed tiny enough that an accounting department has looked at the cost of lost revenue from upsetting the blue few against the money to be made from making them cry into their bitter shandy's in the Wellington and gone "definitely worth it" Truly OTIB.
  10. Not in the slightest. I'd probably piss myself laughing at it and within about an hour of it being seen, it would almost certainly be helpfully redesigned anyway.
  11. Yeah, that's how I read it. It authorises a share issue of up to £495.000 in Bristol Rovers (1883) Limited.
  12. It's the attention to detail that's helped Garner get this award. Things like paying attention to the length of the grass on the pitch. Not because it aids his teams passing but so that he can warn his players how likely they are to hurt themselves as they tumble to the ground all over the pitch.
  13. Lovely picture of Holloway in the directors box at the Mem in that previous post.
  14. One of my other favourite sports was Formula One. That is a classic example of the wrong things that can happen when a governing body allows the teams to have "special status" for an arbitrary reason. Man City were playing in the third division before they were purchased by a country to fund their rise. Until last season Liverpool had won Les Premier league titles than Leicester City. There's absolutely nothing to say that when their rich owners and corporations get bored the so called big six could find themselves back down among the rest. It doesn't matter how temptin
