Basement Rovers Dustbin Thread


42nite

Recommended Posts

I tried to listen to the 'game' on Talk Sport 2 whilst driving down from the North this afternoon.  I gave it my best shot but had to eventually switch to Radio 4 Extra as the commentary left me completely perplexed.  No matter what names the commentator was saying had possession of the football, I just didn't have a clue as to which team they played for.  Totally impossible to enjoy for me, mind.  

 🥱

They must still be paying off Alf Garnett and Tisdale but I wonder if Cockman is still getting paid - he left for a better job so probably not.

Their only hope to avoid further payoffs to Barton is that he loses the plot and leaves of his own accord - Wally and his chums will try and force that scenario for certain.

The more you listen to Barton the worse he is sounding. He seems to be unraveling a bit. Fortunately for him the roasters up North lap it up and he really does have a free pass for now. He’s done ‘em like a kipper. However lose two or three more on the spin and I could see him saying “I can’t do anything with this lot” and walking. Enjoy your topside 🤪

Ben Garner - 34 games in charge. Won 6, Drawn 8, Lost 20.

Paul Tisdale - 19 games in charge. Won 5, drawn 3, Lost 11.

Joey Barton - 10 games in charge. Won 2, Drawn 1, Lost 7.

In the 15 months since they were in the top two and Coughlan walked their last 3 managers have won a staggering 13 of the 63 games they've been in charge of. A win rate of 20.6 percent.

Bizarrely, the sags have won as many games since December 2019 as Coughlan lost in the 12 months he was their full time manager.

In summary, they are really, really shit.

Pricks lost 7 out of his first 10 games. Worse than the other 2 but doesn’t except  any blame whatsoever. Cretin 

And the deluded fools just lap it up.

According to Gaschat reaching the L1 playoffs once with Fleetwood puts him on a par with the top names in the game.

He is banging on about not having a transfer window but I’d be amazed if they don’t have the highest wage bill of that bottom six & so his job is to get results with what he has, not slag off & demoralise them.

He’s taking them back where they belong, they might as well have persevered with Tisdale for all the difference he has made.

A neutral listening to him would think he was hoodwinked into accepting the job.

In my 40 Years supporting the Gas we’ve always sold our best striker haven’t spent the money and then relied on finding a new one to take his place by spending peanuts in the hope that it turns out alright.
More often than not it has but the years it hasn’t we’ve been relegated.
37 years supporting Rovers and all four relegations have come from this and I think this will be the 5th because we haven’t found one after the departure of JCH.
That’s what it boils down to.

 

Blimey, you sad shit - They really really do have a problem with numbers don't they 🤣

I listened to an interview of his in the week, he seems totally convinced he is one of the best managers around.

Completely deluded, he’s done absolutely nothing & that’s why his next job after Fleetwood was with the blue few, not as LJ got after leaving us, a club with real potential.

According to Gaschat. They are on par with Norwich and Tottenham . Whoppers the lot of them

In his interview tonight he conjectures that officials may actually be conspiring against them! Yeah, like that’s what referees are renowned for doing, Joey. WTF? :noexp:

 

 

Joey, don’t spend Sunday discussing the refs performance, spend it with your family because with your track record you’ll not be spending much time with them after June

He just blames anyone and everything.

Officials, players, captain, state of the club internally and now the recruitment.

He no longer talks about positional play, tactics or anything "football", just platitudes, blame and wordplay.

In fact, quite ‘Trumpian”. Just talk about yourself and how unfair everything is, rather than actual issues.
