Incredible as in....  Incredibly small considering a catchment area of a million !

If you were in a pub, having a random sport conversation with a stranger; at some point, you might well ask the question, 'Locally, who do you support?'

You are twice as likely (if not more), of getting 'Bristol Bears' than the answer 'The Fewers'.

They really don't realise they aren't in the top two regularly support teams in this City

Ah, but you just don't get it.

Well over 75% of the population of Bristol are true blue & prowed to be a gashead. Problem less than 5% of them ever go to home games & when they do some of them pay the man on the disabled gate a tenner, so they don't count. And when they go to away games they find themselves locked out. 

Would you believe it 🤔

I knew there was a problem with my reply.

IT WAS BASED ON CLEAR AND OBVIOUS NUMBERS.

Consider me reprimanded and ashamed.

incredible is the right word,special is also the right word, unique is the one i would use to describe them,how else could they be happy to have a dump of a ground with canvas stands...correction,tents, substandard food and promote porn on their big screen. deluded is unfair because if they never had anything in the first place  they think they are world owners with a pitch now

I like the guy in that thread that effectively says 'this season is a write-off due to no fans so if we are relegated it shouldn't count'

Don`t laugh too much but I wonder if he`d feel the same if they were top two................................................

The team have defenitly miss our away support as we always travel in numbers and are very vocal at away games”


😂

Yeah, course they do 🤣

They usually average around 600 on the road compared to our 1100.

For a club like them who rarely sell out an away allocation taking 2-300 to places on a regular basis, only Sagheads could be so deluded to claim that they “always travel in numbers” 🤣

Look at this peanut below, not “reasonably large” enough to ever fill your tiny ground...

As for “passionate”, we’ve all seen what you’re passionate about...non stop songs about City 🤣

I very much doubt the players have missed them.

I almost look on it as a blessing in disguise for us fans not having to put up with travelling miles to watch the rubbish that has been dished up but yes I think it has cost a club like ours pointsin that the crowds are generally of a reasonably large size and passionate. Even watching the game on TV is so different without a crowd - its false and has totally proved that Football is a crowd sport and without it I think it is very questionable how long you would keep watching it.

'Compact and intimidating' stadium apparently.....'ramshackle and embarrassing' would be a more apt description. Absolute bunch of delusion belters.

They are right though, the atmosphere is in tents.

Wonder who they will be travelling to in numbers next year for their annual ‘cup final’ in League 2 now that their buddies from Sunderland are unlikely to be in the same division?

Would have to be a club similar to the stature of Rovers, a very big fish, a club with a similar infrastructure......Salford it is then!

'Intimidating?

What they actually say is it's a shithole and a shit place to go.

That obviously means 'Intimidating' in gas language. 

Hating Bristol city and the Irene dirge are hardly Intimidating, even their own fans were moaning about the crap home atmosphere when the fewers were allowed in!

Intimidating in that you have a genuine chance of injury, after the stairs collapse or the roof caves in on your head

You would be protected by the canopy though? And if anything caught fire the championship-ready sprinklers would deal with it in no time.
