  1. He's hardly going to write a book about Rovers and say they were softies!
  2. I think the club should have announced when the new owners came in that there was a plan b for the ground (like City did when going to court about Ashton Vale), the fact they didn't says to me that it's not going to happen
  3. I'm surprised how many Rovers fans are sucking each others bits at the moment about this on their forum, I'm not sure it's necessarily great for the club, great for Higgs and co as they don't lose all their money, and the new owners get the land etc but I fear Rovers end up losing all assets
  4. And there it is, I was waiting for how long talk of the premier league came up, 13:47 was the time!
  5. Fancy hotel in Horfield? Good luck with that
  6. Anyone about my age (36) who went to school in North Bristol around 1990 and specifically when they beat us with a few games to go to pop us to the title will have relished the last 15 years!
  7. I think this is brilliant by the EP, such an embarrassing story for Rovers anyway, now it's front page news!! I bet some of their fans are cringing at this!
  8. The groundsman at the Memorial needs to sort his lines out, playing havoc with my OCD!
  9. Whenever I get asked if I support City or Rovers, I used to say 'I think I remember a club called Rovers, didn't they used to play in the football league?' however now I just say 'I support City, I've never heard of Bristol Rovers' and that usually gets the response I'm after!
  10. If you really want to get technical then no! The truth is I couldn't remember how to spell 'allegedly' when I posted originally so I plumped for 'previous' with a caveat in brackets. Subsequently I have got my act together in order to find out how to spell allegedly properly (as you can see)!
  11. Rovers have just signed Cristian Montano who has previous for match fixing and rape (both charges dropped), sounds like a lovely chap
  12. It was recently voted the nations favourite bird http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/robin-crowned-as-britains-national-bird-after-200000strong-ballot-10311482.html
  13. They sound like somebody you would see on The Apprentice!
  14. FairPlay, if you can't laugh at yourself there's something wrong!
  15. Wasn't it the Rovers Twitter feed that released the picture? They should have a word with them as the story would not have come out without that picture
  16. I saw them driving down the ring road near Frenchay earlier, reminded me of the scene from Mike Bassett England Manager!
  17. So by that rationale, should celebrations be on a scale depending on the level of achievement? Chelsea fans are allowed to celebrate the most, then Bournemouth fans but not quite as much, we were allowed a slightly less jubilant celebration etc etc maybe you think the open top bus parade for City was too much considering it's only league 1? You are talking absolute nonsense I'm afraid, we can all mock getting back into the league etc and it's fair banter, but to say they shouldn't have celebrated as much as they did is rediculous and only a completely biased football fan would think otherwise.
  18. Really? If City would have been so humiliated I would have been celebrating just as much as the Rovers fans did, if you don't celebrate winning promotion (whatever the level) there is something wrong with you. I hate the Rovers as much as the next man but they are just football fans supporting their team, same as us
