I thought the same.

They both mentioned what happens when the players cross that white line.

Trouble with our players is that it looks like most of them sniffed it!

not a chance they sniffed it that would mean they would have loads of energy and run around

I read OTIB every day. I read the latest on this thread every day. I read it at around 5:30pm yesterday evening then went out. Of course, I kept abreast of the scores and was well aware of the perfect storm swirling over the swamp. At around midnight, I looked at OTIB to see 15 unread pages on the newly renamed thread and it was past 1:30am before I reached the end. 

I'd like to thank each one of you utter bastards for keeping me awake so late and providing me with so many laughs!

I believe you’re always in bed by nine o’clock , if not you go home .

When was the last time the squatters had 12k to watch a game. Because that’s what Joey Bag reckons they will get in league 2. Bristol Rovers the club of delusion 

I looked at records back to August 2012.....no trace of one over 12,000. The nearest they got was 11,750 in April 2017.....against Millwall

Looks like the last League game with over 12k was 1985. They had 12,957 , which is impressive as they averaged 5,258.

Saw their bus earlier, Peter Carol 'Bristol Rovers FC.' On the Portway, under the Bridge, I was heading towards the Glorious High Performance Stadium, it was going towards Shire. I tried to gesture to their Drive that Portsmuff was thataway and that he and they were heading in the wrong direction, but I think he probably thought I was indicating the he and they were a/are manual manipulator/s. And anyhow, I thought, no, they're going the right way, they're going down League Two. And they know the way there. They might not know where the goal is, but they know where L2 is.

And to be fair to them, they are doing it in style.

"Hampshire live" reports that Danny Cowley has 'heaped praise' and noted the 'professionalism' of Rovers boss Joey Barton before today's clash.

I can honestly say Danny,, you've nailed it- I myself am literally 'gushing with praise for the man.

Remember when they had ‘never played in the bottom division’?

Now they are going to be relegated into it for the 3rd time.

Tinpot

I used to work with a couple of gasheads back before the Higgs era and they said several times "Never been in the top, never been in the bottom".

In one sense it's a celebration of averageness but it also underlined that we had been in the fourth.

I wonder if they're now going around saying "Never been in the top, never been in National League South".

As mathematical confirmation to the basement looms I’m sure that the Sags are remembering better times, looking back on Eastville and the Tote with affection. What a massive club they were back then, challenging for promotion from Division 3 with their faithful and true amazing support turning up in ‘numbers’ to cheer on the boys in blue.

Let’s have a look at those numbers shall we?

Remember, they were challenging for promotion to what is now the Championship.....
