Bristol Rovers Dustbin Thread


Recommended Posts

There is a big incentive to sell the Mem before April 2019 otherwise a new law could mean that an overseas / offshore based beneficial owner, such as Dwane Sports, would be liable for tax on the capital gain.

If the buyer of the Mem is sympathetic to Rovers it is possible they would provide a short term agreement allowing the team to continue playing at it's present home until a new (economy version) UWE Stadium is ready to be leased.

Wait till February and then register the Mem as an asset of community value, which will push them beyond that deadline!

What really galls Scum fans is not that we are doing so well after a couple of extremely trying seasons (although obviously that doesn't help) but all the positive attention we're receiving -- our style of play, the GIFs, our passionate support, the success of the Academy, our well-run club, our celebrity supporters, the whole shebang.

Back in the day there wasn't much to choose between the clubs but we've kicked on while they've floundered on and off the pitch. 1990, laid to rest, we won the title while they finished second - in the Conference. Their saviour - who was going to at least restore parity - has turned out to be an utter charlatan.

Previously the only straw they could clutch at was that they were somehow the cuddly toy of Westcountry football, whereas we were disliked by all and sundry. I remember some clown called "Centenary Gas" talking about how "not even Millwall" invaded the pitch to attack players, like somehow our fans were the worst on the planet. Bristol City were somehow the bete noir of the whole footballing world, we've got unlimited money to spend - a gaping hole blown through that theory when we come up against a club who really do fall into that category and hold our own.

They feel some desperate need to believe, "Well, they've left us in the dust but at least we are likable." It's a prejudice they've invested everything in, and it's all come crashing down around their ears. 

I let that screed of squid ink and lies from that truly objectionable individual on the Man City forum get under my skin a bit last night, and in the cold light of day you can understand why they're so bitter. They've got nothing left, nothing.

I can’t like this post enough.  We are superior to them in every tangible way, so they invented an intangible delusion that they’re “more liked” than us.  The recent blaze of good quality PR has burst that particular illusion and as you said they’re left with absolutely nothing to hang on to.  Hence the childish tantrums and the dredging up ad nauseum of events of nearly 40 years ago.  I’d feel sorry for them if they weren’t such a dispicible rabble.

The opposite of love is not hate, its indifference and that’s what the footballing  world feels towards them.  Utter indifference.

Well the dog stroker is known  for chatting shit . But when he says the club is 30 years behind . Surely the blue few should take notice of this. Instead off trying to take the piss out of us losing in the last minute. To probably the best team in Europe. Maybe they should listen to the ***** they adore.

The gap really is massive now, its embarrassing how they still cling to us. Jealousy does bring the worst out in people,  perhaps that's the reason they're so bitter?

To compare us to each other is abit like a boob job gone terrible wrong.  The right side is big, firm and perky while the left side looks like it belongs to an 80 year old as its sagged so far down its wrapped itself around the knee.

This thread has turned into a forum equivalent of clubbing baby seals. 

 

 

Mighty oaks out of acorns grow.

 

Long may it continue...till they go bust!!!

 

Enjoy the thread while you can.  :thumbsup:

Oh dear lord does their paranoia know no ends?

Their latest conspiracy is that SL is going to build the UWE for Bristol rugby and the BCFC ladies team.

You know what's coming next, they'll be saying 'why not go the whole hog and build the bloody thing twice the size, change all the blue panels for red ones and then it's ready for City when they hit the Prem'? :facepalm:

Spot on! I’ve said it before and I’m terribly happy to say it again....that mob up the road are like an annoying nerdy nephew - you spend all year trying to ignore them but when they turn up at Christmas you instantly realise why you spent the whole year trying to ignore them...they just crave attention and when they don’t get it they trawl through our opponents’ forums seeking attention and love....they even try to satisfy their discontent by telling each other that we only beat Man Utd reserves...Lukaku, Ibrahimovic, Martial, Rashford...etc etc...hardly reserves. Then we only narrowly lost to Man City’s reserves...Sane, De Bruyne, Aguero etc etc...

It’s just hilarious but also a little bit sad....and sad is definitely what they are feeling right now...their ‘billionaire owner’ has not delivered and we’ve charged off into the distance, widening the gap every week with an awesome stadium which includes one stand that could comfortably accommodate their entire average home crowd with space to spare....

They went quiet about our billionaire owner when they thought they had one too. Now that they are starting to realise their owner doesn't have the cash, they are starting to moan about SL again. 

At least once they go into administration they'll stop boring on about '82!

I wish they’d stop boring on about SL being a ‘tax dodger’ because of his Channel Islands residency -  when oh when will they realise that Dwane Sports Ltd is registered in Jersey...?!

No they're not! That`s just a postal address. Their actual base is a council lock up down Muller Road. I know `cos Henbury Gas told me.

The family club would never stoop so low as to be owned by someone overseas. They`d rather go out of business than bow the knee to some foreign bullshitter with no money.

I wanted to ‘like’ your post but have somehow run out of the ability to react to any further posts today, how tiresome!

I bet they will still go on about it. 15ers are not the brightest people around, they will keep on and on about 1982 even if they go bust and they’ll justify it by saying that City deserved it by overspending whereas they didn’t deserve it because they had crappy owners.

“.....and, and, and, you went bust before us so we are ‘betterer’ than you...and, and, and fans of every other team in the world love the Roverzzzzzz and our unique, quirky kit, and they all hate you because you are hooligans, and you don’t deserve nuffin’...”

Keep looking up gasheads....that’s where you’ll find us....and, mind that gap....

I actually think SL having a stake in UWE would be a very good idea.

At present the U23 side use Failand, Twerton, Clevedon, Weston (or was that for an away fixture?)  Bristol Sport also has to accommodate any non first team rugby games, plus the Women's team (based at Stoke Gifford) are all dotted around. 

If a small, say 5000 capacity stadium was built there I think it would prove useful as a home for these sort of sides.

I really wouldn't put it past big Steve to build an athletics stadium at UWE mind. Start a bristol sport club athletics team to add to the portfolio and use it for some football matches. 

He'd love Olympic competitors to come out of the Bristol sport stable I'm sure.

I seriously wouldn't build a stable north of the river !!!

And not own the land ? I f there is one thing we've learned is SL will do the best for BCFC. There is absolutely no chance he would rent land when he can own it.

If the rumours are true, they may have their wish in just a few months time.
