    Bristol Rovers Dustbin Thread

    Someone remind me again, precisely HOW did Wycombe cheat?. i used to work in HW, Bristol Rovers is a VERY dirty word (OK, words) in that town.

    A Year ago Today

    Was lucky enough to go to both legs. Rarely been more proud to be a City fan.

    Weakened Teams in Cup Competitions

    Would be interested in the views of the Forum of 'Top' Teams playing weakened sides in the cup competitions. Was watching a frankly abject Liverpool last night and found myself conflicted. Do you think playing weakened teams in the Cup(s) is; A) Disrespectful to the fanbase, the opponents and the competition. Cheating ticket-payers out of the right to see the 'proper' team play, or B) These teams have massive squads, even the fringe players get paid tens of thousands per week, if they do not 'earn their pay' in the FA Cup 3rd round then what are they for? My question isn't around the practicalities of the tactic (resting key players, if you CAN get through with a second string, why wouldn't you?), but more around the morality/ethics of it as a tactic. As I say, I can see merit in both sides, help me out here.

    Club Crest to change? Fans Survey (Merged)

    Interesting info. But I was thinking more of the psychological/NLP anchoring impact of practicing in Fail-land. T’was nothing but an attempt at post-festive levity.

    But things with no wings will never take off... ...Oh, I get it now, makes sense of the fact that they make the players drive past a sign that says “Welcome to Fail-land” every day now.

    Dale Vince Statement about Bolton. (Merged)

    This. If (heaven forbid) this ever happened to us and we got folded and re-formed in a non league with a team of just Bristolians, I would support them. I mean, just look at Newport County.

    Fully understand your sentiments Royston, but still think players and agents, particularly in the PL are doing their bit to ruin the game also.

    Anyone got the worlds smallest violin?

    The man who blames officials for his every defeat, who has been known to refuse to shake opponent’s hands after games, talking about a lack of class? Well, I guess he should know

    Pressing like last season

    Clearly not working for Ipswich

    Kelly

    Kelly didn’t play today and so is not Cup-tied. Am I reading too much into this given that the January window is open?

    Feels good being a city fan.

    21st October 1978 standing on the Stretford End watching Kevin Mabbutt score a hat-trick and Jimmy Greenhoff miss a penalty. Manchester United 1 (Greenhoff) - Bristol City 3 (Mabbutt 3).

    Football teams not named after where they play

    Port Vale is the only one. Arsenal is a shortening of ‘Woolwich Arsenal’. Queen’s Park and Crystal Palace are both places in London.

    Stoke fans taking it well....(Merged)

    It does, but so does the apology. Not excusing him, what he said is NEVER OK, but he is a young lad and his apology is sincere, no question. As wrong as he was to make the comment, it is rare these days to see someone unequivocally say “ I was wrong”. You see our “leaders” on TV lying all the time, never heard an apology from any of them and they are supposedly ‘better’ than this lad. If he has genuinely learnt from this, then no question, he will be a better man as a result.
