  1. Then you find out you have to sit outside on a bench in a storm
  2. cue gaslogic kicking into overdrive and Lansdown being blamed for this (incl of the usual moronic references to "Ladygarden")
  3. From that link - "Tom Nichols has been told by Bristol Rovers he can leave in the January transfer window. The 26-year-old forward has made 28 appearances for the Gas this season in all competitions, scoring four goals - the most he has netted in a single campaign for Rovers." So they are letting him go during his current "hot streak" ? - ofc we are using the term "hot streak" in a very broad sense here
  4. That's a very chilling thought
  5. I was under the impression Morrell was impressing a lot of people at Lincoln, and been MotM quite a few times for them so far this season. IIRC @Shtanley also said on the OSIB podcast that the Lincoln fans on their forums apparently could not believe they had a full international playing in their side. While there may have been extenuating circumstances (injury recovery for Ramsey?) didn't Morrell also keep Aaron Ramsey out of the starting line-up for the last Wales international?
  6. but.... but.... Their sprinklers ARE championship ready! just dont ask about the plans for a new stadium, stands tents at their exising dump, training ground, disabled persons stand, new facilities beyond the new bar entrance canopy, their playing staff, their finances, transfer budget or the owners.
  7. If they really are losing £60K per week - unless their next manager is paying them then they cant "afford" anyone
  8. Quite likely - There seem to be plenty of opportunities for taking on "refreshments" during the evenings at Derby.
  9. I kind of assume this is a wind up? Obviously it is hard to tell at times as a fair proportion of them seem to resort to weapons grade levels of delusion/glue sniffing/crack. But is the quote about "football, rugby, concerts what's not to like" somehow bordering on the assumption that Bristol sport would somehow share revenue with them? If (big if) we shared AG with them, even on a temporary basis, I'd hope we'd drive a hard bargain on their rent, their contribution to maintenance and running costs over the period and also ensure that all non Rovers related revenue stays under Bristol sport. Thankfully with two professional sports teams already resident in the stadium we have no need to house that shower, and so on the face it seems about as likely as rovers selling out their ground for the rest of the season.
  10. Indeed - they don't often make it to the 2nd round draw Does this constitute a "cup run"? when will the DVD be out?
  11. The usual Saturday night "first post" belter/troll/gashead* * delete as appropriate
  12. My hope is that LJ and the coaching staff have instructed Taylor Moore to "shadow him" and do everything that he can to squeeze every last ounce of knowledge about being a top centre back from Williams while he is here. Williams best years are for sure behind him, but he has played at a very high level and if Moore can learn from him it could be key for his development. Not sure if Williams has started coaching badges (or even plans that as a future career) but we could do far worse than keep him for the rest of the season and look at him for player/coach contract next season.
  13. Some help for you - first posts of this nature are usually written "We're coming for you!" (probably in crayon - if you didn't eat them for dinner)
  14. cityal


    Agree with the thoughts of others, really good so far this season and especially today - Unfortunately he is playing that well the bolded part is perhaps the hope we will need to cling to if we fail to go up this season as bigger clubs will be surely be circling.
  15. Maybe their club could issue another Brexit statement to reassure their stay away supporters. ...or maybe it's just their fans aren't as great as they continually claim to be.
  16. Cheating? Wish Afobe a speedy recovery.must be gutting for him as he looked to be enjoying his time here.
  17. We could check how many fans any of West Ham, Wolves, or Southampton exist globally - its pretty much the same thing #gaslogic
  18. More on that: The first time it was resold for £2000 The next time they resold the bottle on the basis that it was the actual Chateau Latour and it sold for £150M An independent Auditor came in and said that seemed "fair" Derby and Villa got away with it Meeting outcome: 6 game bans for Famara Dhiedhou and Bailey Wright
  19. That would be nice I have a feeling its more likely to be along the lines of - "Lunch was great! poached quail eggs salad, roast venison with sauteed red cabbage and parmentier potatoes all washed down with a nice Chataeu Latour at £600 per bottle."
  20. Are you sure? League average attendances since 1970 - Brighton in Blue - fewers in Grey While Brighton clearly had some lean years - looking at the graph I don't think I would assume they were "similar sized clubs". I would say Brighton are larger. Bear in mind that in many cases even in Brighton's lean years they had similar or better attendance than the sags. Their capacity to dream up utter crap about the status of their club is bordering on insanity
  21. You know your ground is shit when fans of a club that play in a 3 sided stadium rip the piss out of your tented squatters camp. Actually the Kassam besides having only 3 stands is pretty tidy from what I recall of seeing it from the outsdue.
  22. I cannot be sure, as I have zero desire to "put myself in the mind of a gashead", but I think he is expressing a degree of disbelief in our responses to his tweet. I mentioned that the tweet supposedly put out then deleted by one of their clubs official accounts (supposedly that said "its time for war") was potentially incitement and also likely disrespectful of war victims itself.
  23. Their club and their fans seem to constantly come across as crass beyond belief - Comparing the match against oxford to war is neither respectful to people who have suffered losses in war or sensible given the way their supporters have been talking on social media in recent days. They need to get a grip - he left for a club in the division above. It happens.
