Bristol Rovers Dustbin Thread

1990 still gets to me. I have to admit. Beaten to the title by a bunch of misfits, non league players and journeymen. Bob Taylor injured at crucial time of the season, we'd been top all season, they beat us, stole the title, dressed up in City Div 3 Champions T-Shirts and rammed it down our throats for years (even though Martin Dobson famously came in and said "I'm gonna make Rovers into a footballing team" and promptly got relegated back to the 3rd tier emphatically).

2015 went some way to healing the wounds, but I for one will never forget how they went on and on and on and on and on about it. Which is why I now take delight at going on and on and on and on about "The Gift" in this massive thread.

I can put up with them festering, but will be totally jubilant the day they go pop.

don't think we have long to wait, cant see them being around in 5 years.

The only thing I really miss about playing that scum is taking over there part of Bristol when we go there and if we were really lucky, giving them a good kick up the jacksy as they ran away from us - apart from that, they are history!

End of ....

Amazes me that they keep coming on OTIB - desperate or what - hanging on to our coat strings me thinks!

I think the truth is far closer to them being pathetic cuckold’s with shrivelled little dicks, sat back watching the far better looking and well endowed neighbour, smashing one into their gorgeous (in their eyes) Mrs, who’s actually just a bit of a fat, ugly slapper..!

According to them they came to Ashton Gate and took us in the KFC and we bricked it.

Blue Few

We saw you standing alone

Without a dream in your heart

Without a love of your own.

 

(lyrics seem to sum up the Sags pretty accurately)

Blue Few

You were not standing alone

We thought no-one was about

But 20,000's locked out

Talking of them beating us and therefore being a 'massive club', has anyone noticed that you never hear a City fan calling us 'massive' but the sad sags always accuse us of it? It's them that call us 'massive', not us. I have never heard a red say anything remotely similar as we know where we stand. More delusional bullsh1t from that lot I suppose.

Nail on the head there Ska, the  amount of times I’ve heard them bring this one up :facepalm:

I'd say it was the period between 1986-1991 that the Sags had their most purple patch and they only picked up results against us by trying to break our players legs (Alexander v Smith) and spending 90 minutes hoofing it out of their box and ending up with luck like you wouldn't believe. 1987 Gary Smart for me was the most unbelievable one of them all. 

 

Ah, the "Alexander". I remember when it was shorthand in the pub for "One swift half and I'm off"

In genuine sincerity, it was great to see Rovers fans appreciate all you guys applauding in the 9th minute for young Bailey Cooper.

Genuine respect from some Rovers fans.

On days like that, I am really glad that as humans, we can forget about Blue v Red, and show compassion and respect for a young life so tragically cut short.

Well done to you all.

"The proposed 21,700 seater stadium, a joint venture with UWE, was granted planning permission on January 17 2013 with a five year expiration date set on the consent.

That consent is due to expire on January 17 2018, meaning that work must begin by early next year at the latest if the club are to avoid having to reapply for planning permission."

So as The Gap prepares to come of age in 2018 and gets ready to celebrate its 18th birthday .... their planning permission for UWE expires today!

Completely agree. Also worth mentioning, Norwich fans joined in with the applause aswell.

So what happens now then? Can UWE do something to keep the PP without the sags or is this the end for the UWE stadium as it was dreamt of?

UWE have been doing a few bits of paperwork recently but they were recently (in S Glos Council's letter of January 5th) told today was a deadline...

"It is critical to note that the final two conditions and implementation needs to be made by the 17th January 2018 to allow the planning permission to remain extant."

The Pipedream Arena, 2013 - 2018

It was never going to happen, they would have to have spent actual money after all. Btw how many Tilsons have they wasted on these proposed new stadiums? :whistle2:

To commemorate this 5 year anniversary, the 'NotYetihad'* is to be renamed the 'No Camp' with immediate effect.

 

*Credit to whichever OTIBer originally came up with that nickname in years gone by.

With the amount of canvas surrounding their ground, the 'New Camp' also works.
