  1. I think it’s down to a lack of real quality. We need our players to be at their maximum week in week out to compete in this league. Other teams don’t necessarily need the same from their players and can afford 75% from players of real proven quality. We have a fairly young side who are improving, but they lack experience of getting to and playing in the Premier League. Is anyone really surprised that we have now dropped out of the playoffs? It was a very tall order to dispatch so many quality teams and remain firmly in the playoffs. I also agree with others that we suffer most in the middle of the park. We lack someone who is experienced, a real battler and creative outlet. From the games I have seen we have rarely dictated in the middle. We can ping it around in defence and get forward down the flanks, but we are often second to the ball in the middle of the park or jockeying. We lack physical strength. If we make the playoffs then that would be a marvellous achievement, but realistically we have over-achieved with the squad we have and we are too reliant on certain players and when you look at the bench we don’t have any like for like options. We’re not going down though so that is a relief.
  2. I can't believe how supporters who have put their own stewards in hospital, pelted an injured player whilst being stretchered off, punched a horse (twice), started a riot and then blamed someone else, who have been pulled up on numerous occasions for being racist, let their kids go in a filthy old portaloo to see Santa dressed in blue and who punch the opposition players in the back of a net can possibly claim to have more 'class' than Bristol City fans? I suspect they get the £9.50 Sun holiday vouchers and book a week at Pontins Brean too. Their delusion is in another stratosphere.
  3. Watch Babestation with glee Whilst spanking the monkey That's the Rovers Go to the Colony But there's **** all to see That's the Rovers If you're on crack and dense And you phone Twentypence That's the Rovers
  4. I spoke to some Sags yesterday afternoon and let them know about their new TV being purchased from Steve Lansdown. A frantic search of Stadia Solutions on Google took place insinuating that I was a WUM Shithead Lady Garden, but when it was confirmed to be true the look on their faces was absolutely priceless. Heads were in hands. The best was when one lad said “We’re a ******* joke!”.....Yep, a massive one too The gift has given again. Oh, and they were ‘Singing The Blues’ again come 5 o’clock.
  5. When you buy a TV From Lansdown’s family That’s the Rovers
  6. When your local’s The Lamb And you lose to Chesham That’s the Rovers When you can’t have a laugh And you’ve squatted in Bath That’s the Rovers When your old England shirt On the back says “Lambert” That’s the Rovers When you take more away And all bum Holloway That’s The Rovers
  7. When you offer a pound Just to steal someone’s ground That’s the Rovers
  8. Never felt more like....bollocks...shut up....ssh....ssh....they don’t exist....82.
  9. Nah, the merger of Rovers and Forest Green to become Forest Green Rovers perhaps?
  10. The big TV screen showing a photo of Matty Taylor about to come on accompanied by the chant about how much he hates Rovers. Welcome to Bristol Darrell.
  11. We aren't a club that the wider world is interested in to put it bluntly. In 2008 when we led the Championship I remember an embarrassing lack of acknowledgement from Sky Sports on their Soccer Specials. We were top of the league and they didn't even have a live reporter at the ground, but they were creaming over "fallen giants" battling it out in mid-table and that is where the live reporters were. In the end a City fan phoned up and Jeff made some garbled half hearted apology and went on about there not being bias to other clubs, but it was so painfully obvious that it was embarrassing. The ignorant ones top it off by calling us "Bristol". Even when we were in the top flight commentators would call us "Bristol". We are only ever of interest if a "fancied club" is after one of our players or our manager. We are instantly dismissed in terms of whether or not a player or manager would stay; We are instantly written off as fodder. We could go up and stay up for 10 years and we'd still be "Bristol" and the only time we'd get a mention would be if one of the "fancied teams" required us to lose for us to go down and for them to avoid relegation. This is the norm. We have to accept that we are a footballing backwater and a "Rugby Town". Pathetic and incorrect as it is, who gives a flying ****?
  12. I barked at him a few times to try and get his attention, then when he looked round I whimpered like Lassie. It was just like his on pitch performance 3rd May 2014....Whimper Whimper. Mind The Gap.
