  1. There already have been but in their jubilation over Alf Garner's anointment most of our fans haven't noticed. Our former manager and his assistant both left but only Alf came in to replace them so that's one salary lost. And a few months back our esteemed head of medical sciences, Doctor Marcus Wellbeing MD, disappeared and was replaced by the cardboard cut out of a St John's Ambulance Service volunteer.
  2. The show must go on Stevie. Leaving Bristol won't mean the end of Rovers, we will just be "a club on the move" again
  3. As I understand it the juvenile member of the family (aged 50) would do anything to keep up the pretense of being a football club owner and this is why his elder brother is handling all negotiations which are taking place out of the country. The latest offer will have to be accepted to enable the 2019 accounts to be finalised. Cheltenham Town or Forest Green Rovers are likely relocation venues.
  4. You have hit the nail on the head there and it is going to happen a lot sooner than anyone thinks. Even young Alf Garner seems to have sussed it out now.
  5. Sources close to the club tell me that Rovers may indeed be at a similar stage in their evolution to Brighton but it is at the time when they were forced out of the Goldstone Ground and had to share with Gillingham.
  6. Not missing as such but better described as truncated. However I am assured this will not preclude me from assuming the role of Chairman when our takeover by Backpassage Partners is concluded in the New Year. With my vast experience of football leadership the hierarchy are certain I shall fit the Bill but there is some doubt about Dean and Clive.
  7. You had Deryn Coller and Ken Sage to demonstrate what could be done. Today we have no one.
  8. Twitter is alive with congratulations to Wael Al-Qadi for his sterling work which led to Rovers winning a silver medal for best community scheme outside the Premiership at last nights Football Business Awards. An open top bus parade is expected to take place once Mr Al-Qadi has returned from the Kingswood branch of Cash Converters.
  9. Especially when sale negotiations are almost complete and I can exclusively reveal the names of some consortium members. G Cornell F Fraser J Moody R Hall B Harris and Grandad Findley
  10. We will be moving North not South and in homage to our President's favourite team one end of the ground will be called "the Shed" So will the other end and the two sides.
  11. Projections being based on two thirds of BRFC current season ticket holders and half of pay on the day attendees making the switch.
  12. Talks renewed about merger with Forest Green Rovers and relocation to Gloucestershire.
  13. He is an habitual Consulate user about to be sectioned under the menthol health act.
  14. You are right of course, and I'm sorry about that, but I was extremely tickled by the connections to be made between the main players in Lavignac Securities Ltd, who seem to have come to the remarkable conclusion that Rovers would be a good fit for the Fruit Market Stadium, and the Marx Bros movie "At The Circus". I got a bit carried away. However, I would like to say how touching it has been to read the tributes on here to Stuart Taylor. The experiences which have been relayed of Stuart are clearly genuine and sincere which says a lot about our rivalry when a perception has grown up that the blue and red sides of town hate each other with a vengeance which is something I have never believed.
