No mention of bonham ? The keeper on loan from Brentford I think.  Looked half tidy from highlights I’ve seen 

Bonham has been released by Brentford. Expect him to sign for Peterborough or someone like that

Released by Brentford so a free agent. Could well end up back there.

Don't the fewers have history of being a goalkeeping feeder club?

It's one of the few positions in their side clubs are happy to loan them players on account of the fact they face more opportunities to make saves in half a dozen games than most sides let the opposition have in two seasons.

What has happened to the Jordanian Screech?? 

The Brentford keeper is meant to be pretty good, I would be surprised if someone don't come in for him with better facilities and better wages. Someone like Mangotsfield or Manor Farm

If anyone wants a laugh at that gas girls video, i asked why they used Ashton Gate. Its our fault, we stole the womens team.... Even on the links he provided it says rovers walked away. Bless

“Basically in 2005, we were Bristol Rovers Women’s FC but Rovers walked away and what followed was the takeover of the club by South Gloucestershire and Stroud College and with it becoming Bristol Academy WFC,” said Williams, who is also the club’s marketing officer.

 

 

My name is Matthew Davies and I'm the Media Manager for Bristol Rovers Community Trust, and I'm also the Secretary for relaunched Bristol Rovers Women's Team.

Thank you so much for your kind words relating to the launch of the Women's Team. Women's football is a huge passion of mine and I'm absolutely delighted to get this squad up an running under the name of Bristol Rovers. The response from the supporters has been incredible and we can't wait to get the ball rolling throughout the summer.

In regards to your query about the content of the launch video, the narrative behind it does originate from the history of the former Bristol Rovers Ladies Team. Before 2005, Rovers Ladies were one of the very few women's teams playing in Bristol. The Gas Girls were initially formed in 1998, starting out in the South West League and in 2005, Bristol Rovers Ladies FC became known as Bristol Academy WFC under a new partnership agreement with South Gloucestershire and Stroud College. In 2011 the club changed its name to Bristol Academy WFC in 2011 and finally became Bristol City Women’s Football Club in 2015.

In essence, our former Ladies team was stolen by Bristol City, so we decided to manufacture a tongue in cheek dig by taking a football on a journey from Ashton Gate, through Bristol to finally end at The Memorial Stadium. Therefore emphasising that our Bristol Rovers Women's team are making a return to the women's game. The Ashton Gate reference is merely a subtle, cheeky joke to reference the origin of the journey. 

I hope this has given you an insight into relation between the two clubs regarding the history of the women's teams. Feel free to read the articles below which details our history a little bit more.

Thank you once again for getting in touch and your support for the women's team is invaluable as we look to build and grow the programme as much as we possibly can.

Kind regards

Sad bitter ******* bellend.

Even their pet newspaper the Post had this to say about them - in essence not stolen by City as not yours to steal you cheap *****.

"The history of the club is interesting - formed in 1998 as Bristol Rovers Women's Football Club, they were renamed as Bristol Academy W.F.C after increased involvement with the Bristol Academy of Sport, which is now the South Gloucestershire and Stroud College.

In 2006, Rovers withdrew funding from the club and Bristol Academy bankrolled the team.

This would see a period of unprecedented success, the most successful season in 2013, finishing runners up in the Women’s Super League, and the FA Cup.

In 2014 the club also reached the quarter final of the Champions League.

In 2013, the club signed a sponsorship agreement with Bristol City FC, changed their name and home kit from blue to red, and three years later in 2016 were renamed Bristol City Women’s Football Club."

You need nets and training facilities and they haven't got that either.

They'll find another equally irritating individual to take his place if he does go though.

Can remember watching them in an FA Cup semi final against Liverpool at Mangotsfield back in the early 1990's

City pulled the funding for them, it must had been a period in mid 2000's when clubs stopped funding the womens game and now its got "popular" again.

 

City found life at the top of the women's game difficult, and their stay in the National Division lasted for just a single season. They ended the 2004–05 campaign with just 9 points and were relegated straight back down to the Southern Division.[3] Two years later, in May 2007, Bristol City announced that they would no longer fund a women's team. The club moved to Bath and became part of the TeamBath group of sports team

So what manager might want to jump ship to a club in a lower division?  Only one I can think of.

Is Tom Nichols a striker or just on strike?

Tom Lockyer already gone. Bonham gone.

10 players released including the Tramp and Legbiter.

All sounds like rats leaving a sinking ship.

They are keeping that recently in the courts Rolling Mayonnaise bloke though.

But if he goes they will all just say the football was poor so no problem at all. We all know there will be huge names applying for the job anyway so they will have the pick of whoever they want - not that it matters as last time Holloway applied and he didn't even get an interview (along with every other application). It is like they didn't interview anyone and went with the cheapest option.....I wonder why.....
