    He did well , really at Exeter on their budget without getting them over the line. Failed miserably at MK Dons though. Don’t know the reasons behind that. Winkelman normally gives manager a decent amount of time usually. 

    He kept MK up, the following season there were a lot of injuries, including the two main strikers. I was surprised that, given those circumstances, he wasn't given a bit more time, but you never can tell with football.

    Who do you reckon mate? Someone you`ve heard of or another Garner-type cheap option?

    From the CEO's interview today, I don't think it will be another Garner-type.  Tisdale being appointed wouldn't surprise me - he lives in Bath, so no major upheaval for him re. family etc, and he fits the club's brief fairly well.  Maybe he'll bring Andy Tilson in on the coaching staff, as they worked together at Exeter, and our defence needs sorting out.

    If he goes there at this moment in time, I give up with football. He's good enough for us right now, let alone a team 18th in the league below.

    I can see someone like Cowley taking it on, but I sincerely hope Cook doesn't go there. 

    I don't think you need to lose any sleep - never going to happen.

    Rovers seem to have a hoodoo over Lincoln, they always do well against them

    Not always!  I think it was after the play-off game - a group of Gasheads were walking up a lane near the ground, and an old lady stepped out of her back gate and belted one of them around the head with a frying pan.  Has to be one of the strangest "weapons" used in fv.

    :laugh: I had heard that, best leave the CP jacket at home tonight then 😂

    Please check in after the match to let us know you're safe! 🤞:ph34r:

    I think that quite a few people are finding non-league a refreshing change, less play-acting by players, good food at reasonable prices, can drink on the terraces - can be a good day/night out, as it's not been sanitised by the corporate mob (yet).  I speak from fairly recent experience! :blush:

    I know a guy who was at school with GT. said he was an AMAZING footballer, the team’s entire tactics were ‘give it to Geoff”. Given that he (I think) only played in the bottom two leagues, it made me realise the difference in class between even League 2 players and the rest of us. 

    Imagine if you had been at school with Beckham or Rooney. 

    He played in the old 2nd Division (now Championship)

    Completely agree on the basis of free speech but what will a three bedsheets and some matt paint achieve.. Really?


    Just need a few poles and some patio chairs, and we'd have another new stand at The Mem.

    Read as, we haven't got a pot to piss in, and therefore every penny counts. 

    They've managed to come up with a fair choice of options, considering there's no pot to piss in.   

    The same as any business transaction, money should be refunded if the product is not supplied - that's what all clubs should be doing, football fans' loyalty gets exploited far too often.

     Following the cancellation of the 2019/20 campaign with four home matches left to play, the Club can now confirm the process for refunds for all supporters, including season ticket holders and fans who had pre-purchased a ticket to one or more of the final four games.

    Those supporters with a season ticket will receive a credit to the value of five 23rds of their season ticket which includes the four matches lost through the early termination of the season and an additional goodwill gesture for the loss of the Bury match. Fans who purchased an individual match ticket for one or more of the final four home games will be able to claim full credit for the matches that they purchased.

    As a supporter with a season ticket or match day ticket, the process will be as follows...

    You will shortly receive an email from the club to your registered account. This will include details of your options and a short survey for you to complete to confirm your chosen credit option.

    These options will be as follows;

    Credit on your ticketing account to the value of your refund to go towards renewal of your season ticket or match ticket purchases in the future for yourself or friends and family
    An online retail voucher to the value of your refund
    The option to donate this refund to the club's Academy
    A full refund onto the card you used for your original purchase
    Any supporters that purchased hospitality packages for the remaining four games will be contacted directly by our commercial team to discuss your options.

    This has been a very challenging time for us as it has been for all clubs and we’d like to thank any supporters in advance that are able to donate their refunds back to the club. We know that this method won’t be possible for all supporters, particularly in the current climate, however, we hope that these variety of options will be well received and will further cement the Club’s commitment to act in the best interest of our supporter base as we work to progress together.

    For us to be able to process all of the above, we are asking all supporters to fill in the refund survey within two weeks, with the deadline of Friday, 26th of June for choosing a refund option.

    Please note, no refunds will be available over the phone at this time and supporters will be required to fill out the form to be eligible for a refund.

    Any supporters who have changed their email address or don’t think they have one on our system, please log into your account on our ticketing system here. If your season ticket isn’t currently linked to your account, please email SeasonTicketEnquiries@Bristolrovers.co.uk.

    We would like to thank all supporters for their patience on this issue and for your continued support.

    The dustbin's too good for this thread.

    And you win a prize for 'Understatement of the Century' by saying "he wasn't everyone's cup of tea".

    There are far worse things you could say. They'd be far worse, and far more accurate.

    He was the very epitome of a g Asshole. No class, whatsoever

    Loving the irony.

    So did anyone actually watch this last night? Thought it was okay but nothing special

    Disappointed, was expecting a bit more considering that production staff had previously been involved in InBetweeners, Derry Girls and Motherland.  Will give it another go next week.
