  1. Andy Mitten's piece on Bristol City

    Maybe to stop investment in them by showing what football teams in Bristol should look like
  2. Bristol Rovers Dustbin Thread

    Well that's the Mem regeneration done then. Now just to mow the lawn at the Colony and that's all Wael's promises sorted.
  3. Our relationship with the media

    Imagine professional tie-ups like the Sage advert (which I love hearing because I imagine R*vers fans spitting out their tea at it) help our image too - that we can be taken seriously in business and in the media. Whereas you wouldn't trust the other lot with something simple, say paying you to put up a fence...

    Relocating them to a better stadium? Or just to the pub down the road?!
  5. Andy Mitten's piece on Bristol City

    To be fair the Mangotsfield ones were/are just one big family - if anyone remembers a large classy family that fought outside their house often, over such important issues as who was going to carve the Sunday roast, that's them. All fans of the "prowed quarters". And unfortunately related to me...

    It also appears their mascot's kit was out of date: "With regard to Captain Gas, we are pleased that he has now been provided with new kit and will be wearing it for the first time tomorrow!"
  7. Andy Mitten's piece on Bristol City

    Agreed - grew up in Lawrence Weston and no one I knew liked them, whereas quite a few were City fans. Shirehampton seems the same, and recently lived/live in WoT and Brentry areas, where again seems more City than anything, and my workplace (central) is majority City if anything. The "less fortunate" fans I know all live in the Mangotsfield/Downend areas...
  8. Bristol Rovers Dustbin Thread

    Yes, the: "and the possibility of providing wet weather clothing to those supporters not undercover when it rains. " bit really did entertain me - it's almost like the poor area in Shakespeare's time, no seats or cover for them either...
  9. Our relationship with the media

    Very good to hear - would hope with the new facilities Sky's commentators would also enjoy coming here now, if they've been done to anywhere near the same standard as the rest of the stadium. Think between the much more professional approach now as part of Bristol Sport, as well as LJ and his team's friendly and "happy to chat" manner (as well as the results!) that City are getting more coverage than I've seen in years...
  10. Andy Mitten's piece on Bristol City

    Good read - like so much of what we're hearing and seeing at the moment, it really does highlight how total our approach now seems to be, such as the drone recording training and the stats being used everywhere, as well as the great team spirit and squad depth. It's great we're getting such exposure outside the UK - imagine a certain little league team will be annoyed it's in their owner's region...
  11. Gone but not forgotten.....

    Got to say, maybe it's just a few bad pics I've seen of Ashton Vale, but I much prefer the look of the rebuilt Ashton Gate...
  12. Gone but not forgotten.....

    Good company we're keeping in that. Like that they think the Gate was already 30k :laugh:...
  13. Bristol Rovers Dustbin Thread

    When the Al Qadis took over and promised them UWE, Hamer said breakeven was 15k, which is why they couldn't stay at the Mem as they'd die. Of course then UWE fell through at they're staying at the Mem, so wish they'd get on with ending...
  14. Bristol Rovers Dustbin Thread

    Yep you wouldn't want anything awful like taking a "prowed" club out of the league on your CV... Those were such happy times :laugh:...
  15. Bristol Rovers Dustbin Thread

    Agreed - I just laugh at how their lot always manage to descend from discussing whether finding a general term offensive quickly descends into listing their preferred insults and why they're not offensive until the thread gets closed :laugh: And yeah that Facebook post was beyond parody, even for them!
