  1. Wigan

    Was it any surprise to see Nathan Byrne being the first Wigan player to run up to the ref? Good player, but an odious little man
  2. Boxing

    Very mature performance from GG. Kept Eubank away with the jab and never let Eubank get close to let off any combinations. I thought Eubank was definitely the more aggressive fighter, but he wasn't landing anything meaningful.
  3. Bristol Rovers Dustbin Thread

    It's like Chernobyl, sometimes It makes me wonder how the G*s keep from going under...
  4. OTIB get together - 5 a side tournament?

    Brislington would be closer for me but I'm 42 and haven't kicked a ball in anger for about 15 years. Was pretty good at 5-a side back in the day but that day seems like a lifetime away now. In short, if anyone is struggling then I'm game but don't expect miracles. I'll be like Tomlin after an all-nighter and 3 pasties for breakfast if I'm lucky.
  5. Ian Baird giving the City fans the finger etc when he got subbed to loud cheers. He deserved it though for being so shit.
  6. It all kicked off in Bristol (Merged)

    As has been said before, growing up in the 70's and 80's was a completely different kettle of fish than it is nowadays. Glue-sniffing by the punks, casual violence by the skins and racism by the hatfull. Now you get taken to school in a 4x4 and you count your number of mates on Facebook. I know which one I prefer. A lot rougher life back then for most but what a musical soundtrack we had to live by.
  7. Interesting talk at Senior Reds today

    I won't believe it until it's on the OS.

    Exactly this. In the not too distant past, I moved to a big company doing a job that I've done for years but with a lot more responsibility. Yes, I had the knowledge but you have to get used to what your new company are expecting from you and it was a huge learning curve. It took a few months of me feeling liked I was blagging it but I now feel like I'm a valued employee as I have proved my worth, but it was definitely uncomfortable for a while and I never had the added pressure of having to move to a new country and a different country to add to that pressure.

    This thread has made me run out of likes for the first time. For clarity, they have gone to the posters that have said we need to give him time. Admittedly, he didn't make a huge difference, but I remember at least one huge tackle he made after tracking back to just outside our box that deserves credit. It's early days and he is way out of sorts, but I think if he gets the backing from both management and fans he will raise his game massively. Let's not forget it's never easy to come from a different country and do your best straight away for lots of reasons. Let's get behind him and see if that helps.

    I see Londoner is spouting his usual 'I'm better than you' nonsense. But as an academic, I presume that's his prerogative (he obviously doesn't realise that quite a few of us on here went to good schools too). Maybe it's because of the London-centric media making him feel like he lives in the most important place in the world and he's basking in reflective glory...... Funnily enough, he's barely posted this season until we started to have a bad run.
  11. 3-0 to 3-3, BUT

    A few bad decisions from players and the manager and we've ended up with one point instead of three against a side that was playing (albeit badly) in the Prem last season. That to me is a huge improvement from last season. Yes, it's hugely disappointing to not win when you have a three goal lead and I can totally understand the frustration from everyone. The thing is, for me, we actually didn't play badly. In fact, we looked brilliant in spells and should have won this easily we're it not for a few silly mistakes and some really bad luck. For example, Joe Bryan (who has been arguably our best player this season) got utterly done for their equaliser. Do we blame Joe for that or Marlon for a freak deflection? That deflection could have gone anywhere and normally would've gone anywhere but in the back of the net. Shit happens I suppose.
  12. Two Years Today

    Godwins Law kicked in quickly on this thread...

    That pretty much sums up my point. Rennie used to get loads of grief but once he left us he went on to have a decent career at the highest level. He was obviously a good player but if certain 'fans' turn against you its very hard to win them over. Cole Skuse is a relatively recent example. I would say Bas Savage too but he really was utterly shit.

    That would just be too easy. I'm trying to think of players that didn't really deserve the stick they got at the time. Baird deserved all the stick he got and more. I was there when he got subbed, the crowd cheered and Baird decided to start giving the fans the middle finger. I have never seen it before or since from one of our own players.

    Damn straight we should. Dave Rennie and Glenn Pennyfather have a lot to answer for. And don't get me started on Martin Kuhl.....
