What a ****..Obviously didnt want a relegation on his CV.

Spot on! He has to think of his future and dosen't want relegation on it but if he needs references he best not ask us or Plymouth, Oldham, Chesterfield & Notts County fans to name a few for one!

Was Garner this season? He was particularly woeful!

Shockingly good. 

Almost unnoticed, laid their season’s foundations on a bed of sand to near guarantee failure.
 

Tremendous effort.

I think that, in prison parlance it’s called recreation. 

I think it’s ironic that the Gash’s manager could very well be peeling the spuds that make the past-their-sell-by-date crisps they’ll be selling in the club tuck shop next season.

Statistically, who has been the best Rovers manager this season?

Obviously, Joey is in the lead at the moment (for me) as he looks like the one who is going to put the lid on the coffin and see the job through.

But haven't all their managers been given a similar number of games, so a points per game average will probably tell quite an interesting story.

Rob. I have ever so happily compiled the stats for you. 
Don’t forget, they’ve technically had 4 persons in charge this season, with Widdrington letting himself do it for a couple of games. 
 

Garbles. Pl 11 W3 D3 L5 F11 A19 PPG 1.09. 
Pisdale. Pl 15 W3 D3 L9 F13 A24 PPG 0.8. 
Widdles. Pl 2 W1 D0 L1 F3 A3 PPG 1.5. 
Barfton. Pl 14 W3 D2 L9 F13 A19 PPG 0.79. 
 

So, Barton currently has the worst points per game record. 
If they’d have stuck with Garner and his PPG they’d be 19th.

Pearson is probably worse than all them

I love that fact that (not only have you done the maths), but you have extrapolated the numbers to give a view of where they could be.

I haven't see them play, but I thought the appointment of Garner would be good for them in the long term. Someone with exceptional coaching references who was new to the first team managers role, but with his upper end coaching career, he could have probably made some realistic phone calls to have got them loan signings that would have helped.

But then, they went short term. I remember and interview with Ray Palour years ago when Wenger was appointed at Arsenal and most of the player took the attitude of, 'Right Gaffer, show us your medals!' Which he clearly didn't have (see Graham Taylor as a UK equivalent).

Took a few transer windows and the signing of potential rather than proven for him to make his mark. Remeber that they signed Henry as a winger, and Wenger turned him in to a reasonable striker.

That all said, it's the Fewers. So eff 'em.

Awful shame that the one before that mob 'traded up' to Mansfield :laughcont:

So, apart from a two game caretaker throwing the stats off a little, basically each new managerial appointment has made things worse.

By my reckoning, even if they had stuck by Tisdale they would have been at least 1 win and may be about 4 points better off than they are now.

.....and they were so excited when Norman Stanley Barton arrived 🤣

Funny thing is, for a club whose fans hilariously claim that everyone admires them, I’ve seen quite a lot of people on Social Media saying they hope Rovers get relegated as it would serve them right for employing Barton.

For decades they’ve bumbled along with most people unaware of their existence but it’s not just us, Barnet and Wycombe fans who think they’re massive ****ts these days.

Well done Graham, well done Garner, well done ‘Tis’ and well done Wally. Excellent work 👏

it was Wael who brought him round to the idea of managing Da Famous Quaters

I bet it was pictures of the Colony centre of excrement that finally sealed the deal. What self respecting manager could fail to be impressed by a tent in a field near Almondsbury?

I'm guessing Joey will take them down then leave? n'est pas ?

 

He's made comments suggesting he wants to stay and "rebuild".

But the bloke's a weapon's grade bullshitter, so you can't trust a word he says.

Seeing as Rovers haven’t played at Championship level since 1993 that is impossible.

Or are we now saying getting points against Swansea & Watford is the same as against Northampton & Rochdale?

That’s blue “half of Bristol” levels of delusion.
