Basement Rovers Dustbin Thread

Korey Smith was in the commentary booth for the BCTV+ coverage yesterday and he took credit for Matty Taylor’s goal. He claims he told MT pre-match that whenever he got the ball he should have a shot or he’d need to give Smith a fiver.

“That was all the motivation I needed,” said Taylor. “That was a week’s wages when I was at Rovers.”

I think every club has cheated at some point, although I'm not convinced we did over the Stockport postponement. Do you think City have ever cheated?

BRFC were warned officially by the FA about future conduct, concerning the late late Stockport postponement. This was where the groundsman was seen by a Stockport official, watering the corner of the pitch at the non tent corner, and Stockport made an official complaint.🤔

A similar event happened at Trumpton when Rovers were due to host Bristol City. Rovers who were struggling with injuries to key players had a piece of good fortune. The water main, which was three ft underground, suddenly sprang a leak overnight and, the game had to be postponed due to a waterlogged corner of the pitch.  I believe the groundsman was re employed at the rugby ground by BRFC, then made a life president, along with Arthur Holmes the rugby club chairman, for their services to BRFC.

BCFC cheated when making an application for grants, I think Les Kew was in charge at the time but, I could be wrong on this point.:whistle2:

I don't care about Wycombe one way or the other and I like to think I'm a pretty level headed bloke. However, I was at the game where the 'lightening strike' happened. Admittedly I'm not an expert on such things . but I would like to think that if I was in a structure that was hit by lightening I would probably realise it had happened. Seemingly it was only their safety officer who saw the lightening strike, added to the fact that Wycombe had been practically begging the ref to abandon the game up until then ,  I'm gonna stick my neck out and say yes, the dirty  ******* cheated and I was raging at the time!

In the interest of balance, I freely admit that if this had happened to City, I would have found it extremely amusing :)

 

Care to comment about Stockport at home just before the 2nd leg of the JPT Final against us when your club flooded the pitch to avoid playing an in form Stockport.

Seems like Karma to me

We appear to have played there in the FA Cup in January 1958 - exactly 60 years ago! That was probably the last time as they folded in 1962 and resigned from the league. Obviously we haven’t been in the same division since then.

Exactly 61 years ago, Carol Vorderman you ain't!!

To be fair to Miah they usually only cheat and steal from eachother,  rather than others. Except when they tried to steal Ashton Gate of course.

  • tried to steal Ashton Gate of course.
  • stole the Memorial Ground from Bristol Rugby
  • tried to steal Wycombe's place in the football league after getting relegated by taking them to court
  • stole a watertight contract from Sainsbury's and replaced it with an ever-so-leaky contract
  • stole money from the punters selling diluted piss and calling it Fanta
  • stole the piss-stained Santa's Grotto porta-loo from a building site
  • tried to steal the fencing for the Colony by not paying their bills
  • stole the famous blue and white quarters from another team?

Feel free to carry on the list ...

Yep, 3x VHS, 2x Betamax and 10 video tapes all containing recordings of Babe Station.

I heard one of the betamax tapes contained a recording of '50 greatest throw-ins' - apparently there is one, where after winning the throw, they keep possession for two passes before losing it.

Halcyon days.

I am never surprised by how moronic a sag can be. Mercifully the clip doesn't show their sister/mother spreadeagled on the back seat

You bastard! I was just about to have my breakfast, and I've gone right off the idea now that I have that frightful mental image.

What is even more alarming is that they are usually one and the same.
