  1. Bristol Rovers are considering ways to help ensure the season is completed safely amid Covid-19, such as potentially scrapping the team bus for away games, says boss Paul Tisdale. Football is under scrutiny from the government and Public Health England with coronavirus cases rising. Clubs have also been issued guidance by three major professional bodies within the game around player behaviour. "We've got to be so careful," Tisdale told BBC Points West. "We're even talking about now, for away travel
  2. Prospective Derby County buyer Sheikh Khaled Zayed Bin Saquer Zayed al-Nayhan is now being linked with a West Country club currently owned by someone who is not a personal friend of Prince Abdullah bin Musa'ad bin Abdulaziz Al Saud or Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed al-Nahyan
  3. Popped in once for a dry martine. She moistened up after I gave her a tickle.
  4. I understand that Dwane Developments UK Ltd is one of Britain's most prosperous companies because their tenant, BRFC, not only pays them rent but also pays for all of their business expenses and capital costs. It is said that even Musk and Bezos look enviously at this business model.
  5. Actually the scheduled move in date is in 8 months time. Mr Al-Quidi’s interview with Sam Frost in the Evening Post has stimulated a massive debate on the Rovers’ fans forum with most Gasheads eagerly looking forward to the coming thaw so that work on both the stadium and training ground can continue. The consensus is that with Mr Al-Quidi and his dynamic board of directors at the helm there has never been a better time to be a supporter of BRFC. Of course we feel for other EFL clubs who are close to administration and begging for financial help but, as our midfield maestro Josh Barrett
  6. Rovers in the assendency at Brisbane Road and Orient have just had a player sent off.
  7. We don't have any showers up at Portaloo Park. Our players train on the bowling greens there and then retreat to a secret location to get changed and talk tictacs.
  8. Someone at the club thought voluntary liquidation meant the liquidator was a volunteer and wouldn't need to be paid but Mr Tisdale obviously thinks otherwise.
  9. But Mr Al-Quidi took the credit for doing all those things a few months after he rode into town ? We are either following American election practises and counting things twice or we have signed up to the green new deal and every few years will be recycling our list of groundbreaking achievements.
  10. Rovers have started to use the magnificent new training ground at Almondsbury and Mr Al-Quidi has just announced through his Instagram account (36 million devotees) that it is to be named “The Quarter”. I understand this is because only a quarter of it will ever be finished.
  11. September 6, 1954 Liverpool make four changes for their game with Bristol Rovers, at Bristol, this evening, for which they only left Liverpool this morning, so that they will have had close on seven hours train journey before taking the field. As Hughes is fit and returns to centre half, Twentyman resumes his normal left half berth. Arnell tales over at centre forward from Louis Bimpson, who received an eye injury on Saturday, and Anderson fills the vacancy thus created at inside right. Anderson had 13 senior appearances last season, scoring five goals. Bristol Rovers have made a g
  12. Few would have suddenly embarked on such a project three months after the Government had invoked emergency powers which effectively shut down their business and even fewer would be pleading poverty while spending money to develop land which they didn't own and with no formal lease agreement in place.
  13. Joking aside Peter, there is a feeling among the football elder statesmen I have spoken to that Rovers may have made a blunder in the way the new training ground is being paid for. The money is coming into the club from Mr Al-Quidi and then out again to pay the contractors working on the project. But to obtain funding under the rescue package individual clubs may be audited to determine their financial need. Which could lead to the question "If you are so desperate for cash to keep your business afloat why are you spending vast sums on a training ground which is not necessary for your survival
  14. The shares are 10p each so this new resolution allows the company to allot 4.95 million more shares. In June Mr Al-Quidi said he had swapped the Dwane Sports loan for shares in BRFC 1883 Ltd, which had capitalised the loan, but he hadn't. When eventually the Bristol Post was pressured into confronting the club about this false statement Mr Starnes response was that they first needed to have an AGM to pass a resolution to allot more shares. The AGM took place on September 28th and the resolution was passed but no new shares have been allotted to Dwane Sports and the loan remains
  15. An important announcement about Bristol Rovers new stadium is expected later this afternoon. I shall be providing updates here from 4pm onwards.
