  1. Surely you need to say more than that!
  2. Nor has he mentioned what qualifications/skills he has, or mainly what jobs he has been applying for. I imagine most people could apply for 10 jobs a week knowing full well they dont have the skills for it which means they wont be getting the job.
  3. Why does that make any difference? I don't think anyone is making jokes regarding him having learning difficulties.
  4. You said " sadly had a much publicised 'breakdown' (from which he thankfully recovered.)". Where was this too? The above could easily be read as he was trying to force a move out of the club.
  5. There was no offer for basso though, was there? Also, where was there a mention of a breakdown?
  6. Sure If you are an 8 year old on a school trip....
  7. That can happen anywhere though, even in seated areas if you try hard enough. Any capacity increases wont be happening for a long long time, there really is no benefits to the club. Why would they sell out thousands on something that doesnt benefit them?
  8. The club have no real need to implement rail seating, standing isnt dangerous in the section of the ground it is currently "allowed" and if they paid for rail seats they would not be getting anything back in return.
  9. If you think you dont need to check your blind spot then you really shouldnt be driving a car.
  10. Didn't they say after they wouldnt allow anymore friendly games?
  11. Nearly all teams charge to play pre season friendlies, its not just what the "big" clubs do.
  12. He said said before he thinks the royals are performing monkeys, would it be ok if it was a non mixed race baby then?
  13. City pulled the funding for them, it must had been a period in mid 2000's when clubs stopped funding the womens game and now its got "popular" again. City found life at the top of the women's game difficult, and their stay in the National Division lasted for just a single season. They ended the 2004–05 campaign with just 9 points and were relegated straight back down to the Southern Division.[3] Two years later, in May 2007, Bristol City announced that they would no longer fund a women's team. The club moved to Bath and became part of the TeamBath group of sports team
  14. If anyone wants a laugh at that gas girls video, i asked why they used Ashton Gate. Its our fault, we stole the womens team.... Even on the links he provided it says rovers walked away. Bless “Basically in 2005, we were Bristol Rovers Women’s FC but Rovers walked away and what followed was the takeover of the club by South Gloucestershire and Stroud College and with it becoming Bristol Academy WFC,” said Williams, who is also the club’s marketing officer.

Thank you so much for your kind words relating to the launch of the Women's Team. Women's football is a huge passion of mine and I'm absolutely delighted to get this squad up an running under the name of Bristol Rovers. The response from the supporters has been incredible and we can't wait to get the ball rolling throughout the summer. In regards to your query about the content of the launch video, the narrative behind it does originate from the history of the former Bristol Rovers Ladies Team. Before 2005, Rovers Ladies were one of the very few women's teams playing in Bristol. The Gas Girls were initially formed in 1998, starting out in the South West League and in 2005, Bristol Rovers Ladies FC became known as Bristol Academy WFC under a new partnership agreement with South Gloucestershire and Stroud College. In 2011 the club changed its name to Bristol Academy WFC in 2011 and finally became Bristol City Women’s Football Club in 2015. In essence, our former Ladies team was stolen by Bristol City, so we decided to manufacture a tongue in cheek dig by taking a football on a journey from Ashton Gate, through Bristol to finally end at The Memorial Stadium. Therefore emphasising that our Bristol Rovers Women's team are making a return to the women's game. The Ashton Gate reference is merely a subtle, cheeky joke to reference the origin of the journey. I hope this has given you an insight into relation between the two clubs regarding the history of the women's teams. Feel free to read the articles below which details our history a little bit more. Thank you once again for getting in touch and your support for the women's team is invaluable as we look to build and grow the programme as much as we possibly can. Kind regards
