  1. Sadly, I think loads would choose flicking the TV on above spending the majority of the day travelling and actually attending. Just look at how many do for Premier league football, with teams they have no association with... Televised football kills lower league clubs and games be readily available that way would soon see the complete decline of every club that relies on gate receipts (basically all outside the Premier league money)
  2. I think that continuing streaming games in the UK would quickly spell the end of football. It's too easy to sit at home and log on to a stream. Too many would and that option would kill the clubs very quickly.
  3. That seems like a very edited version of how the conversation MUST have played out....!? You have conveniently forgotten to include any mention of their comments about how much they love, respect & admire Rovers...?
  4. In comparative terms, that's a massive signing for those scumbags (and I don't mean the size of Pitman's arse!) A proven scorer at higher levels that they are, albeit several years older than when we used to watch him strolling around doing very little. He'll either bang in loads, or be a complete liability for them, with his complete and utter unwillingness to put a shift in. Odd signing as a JB choice. I bet Rovers fans are touching themselves silly over this one, so we can only hope he has similar impact to Mark Little.
  5. Yeah, it's not far for them to travel... ... From Weston Super Mare.
  6. Very rare to get that amount for a friendly (not even a testimonial) I'd have thought about 6k was more likely. I'd probably have gone, but away until Sunday.
  7. They probably covered themselves against this in the small print... Something like.... "when our repeatedly convicted & accused thug of a manager next attacks someone, no refunds will be issued" "nor will any refund be available the next time anybody associated with BRFC violently attacks or interferes with any animal, be it domestic, equine or livestock - or should anybody be charged with groping women whilst they are out with their children" Disclaimer probably reads like... "you know who we are, what we're like and your lack of morals or good taste, does not entitle you to a refund when the inevitable may occur"
  8. I thought the same as we chalked up defeat after defeat last season, but then look at how many kids needed to be playing because of injuries to first team players. It was hard to gage much from last season.
  9. It's always hard to know at this stage, because for all the work we've been doing, we don't know much about all the other teams. Whilst I comings haven't been numerous, they appear to have been shrewd and add quality. The big factor for me is those returning from injury. If we'd just signed (effectively) née players like Williams, Wiemann, Dasliva, Martin & COD, we'd be buzzing...! Kalas should be well back to his best after a great euros. Nagy should be fully fit & Wells should confident. Fingers crossed we have the right balance and also some of the encouraging youngsters progress well. I feared a relegation scrap, after the latter part of last season, but think/hope we'll be better set than that for this season.
  10. Were they playing Rovers in a pre-season friendly..?
  11. They're playing for Plymouth..?
  12. Joey Barton should not have his career hampered because of the actions of his relatives. He manages perfectly well on his own..!
  13. Exactly this. Repeated acts of violence in differing situations didn't stop them employing him in the first place. So to say that anyone found guilty of it will be dismissed, seems a bit odd. It's not been a one off, which has led to him being a reformed character - he's a repeat offender, so Weal has made himself look a bit daft there.
  14. I was under the impression that his Mrs had phones 999 claiming to have been kicked in the head by JB. I think we've all jumped the gun somewhat here and it now appears that JB was just unfortunate that whilst out with his wife, police officers, for no reason, without any claim of such action, decided to go door knocking in the hope of bumping into JB, at which time they were going to accuse him of having kicked his wife in the head. It all seems a tad harsh now, as that (according to BRFC) appears to be exactly how it played out..!
  15. Out of interest... What was your stance when it became apparent, beyond any reasonable doubt, that Darrell wanked off dogs as a pass time..? Was that OK, because no harm was done, or did you feel that was a tad inappropriate..?
  16. Not football related, but this is the best one I've seen...
  17. Why though..? I honestly don't get it..! It's not even a factual analysis, like possession. It's utterly pointless & irrelevant, as far as I can see.
  18. I've always found the expected goals nonsense to be, well, nonsense. Who gives a **** what some algarythm thinks should be the case..?! The beauty of football is that it's not easy to predict. It a typical modern day need that it pampers too. I don't understand it and have absolutely no interest in finding out more about it.
  19. They must be taking the boycott VERY seriously. So much so that they were even rehearsing it whilst Gerry Francis, Malcolm Allison, John Ward, Paul Trollope, Russell Osman, Ian Holloway, Paul Buckle, Dopey Darrell, Ben Garner and others were in charge...!
  20. What is possibly even more baffling, is that surely its a great opportunity for them to even just pretend to take the morale high ground and call for his head - not because they condem his (alleged) actions, but because he's been worse than dire as their manager..! Yet they actually seem to rate the bloke..! He doesn't even stack up well against Ben Garner FFS..!
  21. If you've got a significant amount of time to spare, here is a link to a summary of Barton's previous misdemeanours. From numerous training ground bust ups, to an incredible number of Red cards for violet conduct, to stubbing a cigar out in a youth team players eye, to attacking members of the public, numerous arrests, charges and sentences passed on him, to inflammatory remarks and public spats with fellow professionals.... How any football club could even consider appointing him as manager of their club is beyond belief..! https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-9114297/Joey-Bartons-incredible-rap-sheet-sacking-Fleetwood-Town.html
  22. His Mrs sounds like a delightful character aswell then..! Match made in heaven, and perfectly suited to his current workplace.
