Basement Rovers Dustbin Thread

Something is afoot Eddie, and not the 3 1/2 inches claimed by critics of Rovers' President Wael Al-Qadi.

But what of the presence in the United Kingdom of Mrs Sheikh Mohammed daughter of the late King of Jordan ?  It is alleged she is here to be close to her lover a lovely man who loves football and has a sumptuous office in West London. The Princess is a billionaire in her own right and her left alone could buy Rovers a new stadium and provide a playing budget far in excess of that supplied to BCFC by Stephen Lansdown.

Exiting times ahead for Rovers and, as usual, my source is likely to be highly reliable having previously predicted that Victor Meldrew's wife would leave him for Dr Finlay. 

Exiting times ahead for Rovers.

We can only hope .

They can only dream of signing the likes of Kalas, DaSilva, Bentley and Szmodics.

They can only dream of selling players for millions, such as Flint, Bryan and Reid.

They can only dream about £40 million stadiums and can only dream of appearing on Sky twice in a month.

They can only dream of beating Man U in the QF of the League Cup and giving Man C a good game in the semi final.

They can only dream of 20000 plus attendances and challenging for promotion to the premiership.

Whilst we live on the planet Earth, they are living on Uranus or some other extraterrestrial world outside of our solar system.

It's bad enough that their fans are deluded, but it seems that their board and management suffer from the same delusions as well.

There was a time where there was at least some competition in Bristol football. Those times of course were decades ago.

That’s a bit harsh on Manor Farm .

Forget Manor Farm, that was harsh on Portland Old Boys A Team.

The big unknown is the pricing.  They are 10p nominal but could be sold for, say, £1.10 which would mean the club gets £110k which is split £10k Share Capital and £100k Share Premium Account.

I think they're trying to bring someone on Board as Tony Fernandez did at QPR where he brought in the Mittal family with an initial small share and since then they have gone on to own it (I think, few years ago now).

They are also not going to be generally available; even if you wanted them you couldn't buy them.  They will be offered to a specific person.

I think that they already have someone lined up and now all they have to do is stop them seeing the state of the Mem before they write out the cheque.

Seems a very strange and amateurish way of publically 'outing' any interested parties.

But hey, that's what they do, eh?

The only discreet way to do this would be to sell some of their own shares and they don't seem to want to do that.

My guess is that Wally will buy the shares for their nominal value, and Dibley Sport will try and flog their holding.

The old man and the brother get their money back, and Wally still gets to enjoy being president.

Could be. Though 1.2% won't get him a seat on the Board.

Would probably be enough during any sales negotiations to award him an honorary role in the club, life president or similar.

Basically, promote him out of trouble.

Oh I see, like giving Sid Vicious a bass guitar and then taping up the terminals so that his inability to play bass didn't spoil the songs.

Yes, that has legs.

So is this the same as Millwall are doing?  I know that their owner usually converts his loans into shares, but £21m is more than the total of their debt.

That's what I initially thought it was but the number of shares is so small it seems pointless.

Potentially it could be swapped for existing debt or preference shares rather than sold for cash.

Waq and his family are trying to dilute their ownership, so there is less pressure on them to put in their own money,

after all they couldn’t put on investment as they only own 92% of the club,

If something does go horribly wrong then the Mem goes to Dwayne sports as it is secured against a loan. Does diluting their ownership then reduce liability on debts, is it a slow tippy tappy exit strategy ?

I think their plan is for the football club to fold and then have a prime bit of land ready for development

Slagchat.....

Yep and all we need is a good season from us or a very bad season from them and we could be even. Or even a very good season from us and a crap season from them and ..... there would still be a gap but not the one they want! 😉
FTG!

So there we have it boys and girls GasLogic strikes again. So according to that just one bad season from Man City and a good one from us we could get EVEN with them! Imagine the scenes if that were to happen! 

What a f@cking w4nker 🙈

FTG

So this nobber thinks that it's possible that we could get relegated, and they get promoted with their team of tinpot rejects, do not drink Special Brew for breakfast people. Inserting BRISTOL ROVERS into the BBC Sport Website Championship Table and hitting the Update button would crash the whole ******* website, and then send out another WANNA CRY (😂😂WITH LAUGHTER) virus.

The day we get goal music is the day we become a franchise, it will take away from our uniqueness 

Don't know what they're worried about.  It's not likely that they would hear it that often.

Guess it depends if they play it when the opposition score. Wouldn't put it past them

The only thing Unique about they losers is their ability to keep making themselves look tinpot with the gifts they continue to produce on a weekly basis. Why they think they are something special I’ll never know. Also have absolutely no idea why goal music would make them a franchise, they are more of a franchise than we’ll ever be, not that they understand the meaning of a franchise.

don’t forget their unique kit - so unique it was worn by other clubs way before them (a jester outfit is very apt for that lot, or it is possibly a mouldy battenburg style kit, or maybe twattenburg would be more apt)

How could I forget that every other week they hold their own competition at Chernobyl (although extremely exaggerated) on how many dribbling morons you can fit into one stadium. They are light years ahead of everyone in that department. Very unique indeed.

That was my first thought when I read it TBH.

The more I think about it the more confused I get on what Wally is actually doing or planning with them? Not sure he even knows it’s from one extreme to another, yet the Sags all sit there questioning absolutely nothing on what is happening at their shambles, watching on thinking a new stadium is on its way, I mean how could it not be with such a Lovely Man running the show not knowing what the f@ck he’s doing.
