  1. There's something else at the root of this. And I don't know what it is. Their loss for the year should actually be lower than previous years as they had player sales (Matty to us and somebody to Ipswich); they were ticking along at about £1.6m ignoring UWE write-offs so maybe £1.2m, £1.3m. Their best, or rather least worst, results for several years. The loan facility had another £5m added to it which IIRC left them covered for about three years' trading losses from now. There is no reason for their 17/18 accounts to look bad, they should look (relatively) good. Whatever else has been going on may not be revealed if it's fallen through so it could be that at their 11 June AGM they sign off on a reasonable set of accounts and that's that. No explanation required for the two month delay or some guff trotted out (the audit partner left his homework on the bus). I'm not expecting any big reveal or bad news in their accounts. I think anyone who is will be disappointed.
  2. Big club fans. I'm with you, winning the FA Cup is ten times better than coming fourth in the prem.
  3. Meh. The difference these days is the huge squads and mostly foreign players in the teams. Back in the eighties I could name the core of any top division teams because they had played for only one or two clubs their whole careers; I would also through knowing that about the teams have a preference. Now Premiership teams are interchangeable brands with the only constants being the stadium and the fans. Now it's the players all shuttling every year between here Spain and Italy. When someone mentioned it yesterday I had to ask who was playing. Needless to say I won't be watching it.
  4. Rod wasn't a Rovers fan; quoting from a Rovers forum:
  5. This jumped out; it backs what people have been saying: that a generation of Bristol is going to be red. We're interested in results and coaching the players but things like that behind the scenes are absolutely massive for a club like Bristol City. 30 per cent of our support are under 19-year-olds - so they've had a memorable season with some of the games you've just mentioned there.
  6. About £1.6m like the last couple of years before write-offs of the UWE costs. I can't see that the numbers will be a surprise; there's got to be something else that has caused the delay. It could be ongoing sale negotiations that have either been successful or have fallen through hence the announcement of the AGM date. Filing those accounts will also mean that they can register new players so the drama is delayed a while yet. On a side note The Sun had a story today about how Will Smith's career had collapsed. I was hoping for "that" picture but no.
  7. The Bin Ladens are a wealthy family who made their money in big construction projects in the Middle East. Osama Bin Laden was the black sheep of the family and not the head of it.
  8. Technically yes but they are unable to register new players if they haven't submitted their financial information, viz audited accounts, to the EFL. He's right in that the EFL doesn't apply this sanction for non-filing at Companies House but I would regard that as a technicality.
  9. I remember it but I can't find it. Found this though I guess they must have not liked the site as they are playing back at their old ground again. http://www.southwestbusiness.co.uk/news/09062014073325-bristol-rovers-move-to-new-ground-delayed-after-visit-from-secretary-of-state/
  10. His tenure at the club is beginning to remind me of the celebrity era at Exeter. He's using his family's ownership of the football club to mix with celebrities. David Blaine, Michael Jackson and Uri Geller wonder what the hell they're doing at a rainy St James' Park. A very nice man and Will Smith.
  11. Well there's a coincidence; I was driving my white BMW towards Sainsbury's Fulton yesterday when I found myself being closely followed by a van with a "Honk if you use Parson Street station" sticker on the windscreen and a large pile of what looked like football programmes in the passenger seat. And yes I am a fan of the M1.
  12. So that everyone can share in the authentic Rovers' "locked out" experience.
  13. Well, they might if they could guarantee to be able to return on the same plane as they arrived. Otherwise of course "no".
  14. Good luck Frankie, you will get a cheer when you play here again.
