They probably don't realise they are owned by Jordanians, surely the Barcelona of League 2 being traded would have been global news at the time.

At least, until they took their place in 'tier 5' of the pyramid.

(Honestly - some of them have been calling it tier 5 rather than non-league or conference).

They are. I bumped into the gAsshole in work this morning. He said he was so happy when he woke up on Wednesday morning that we were finally out of the cup and he didn't have to keep hearing about us "every five ******* minutes"

I reminded him our next 2 away fixtures are live on Sky...

 

Who’s the featured game on Channel 5’s highlights programme this week..?

I'd be sick of us this season if i was one of them.

On TV everyweek, plaudits coming in from all over the football world for the way we play, taking the game to the best the Prem has to offer, multi million £ players coming in, great stadium etc, etc etc.

It's enough to make you want to hate us, then start making shit up or apply Gas logic to make yourself feel better about the ****ing huge GAP that is widening season after season.

The gap is indeed a chasm

Aww diddums, 5live didn't go all gooey over 'da famous quarterz' whilst interviewing a Bristol City fan about his job....Talk about needy  :laughcont:

They didn't get a mention because nobody gives a shit. Having a Chelsea supporting owner who doesn't want to spend any money doesn't automatically make them a household name in the Middle East.

I was chatting with a 21 year old relative last night and he doesn’t understand the rivalry and dislike that his elderly relatives have for Rovers, his generation are 98% City fans and he doesn’t have a single mate who watches Rovers on a regular basis, he says the rivalry for his age group isn’t there and that they are a total irrelevant, how things have changed since I was his age!!

That'll be the same Chelsea that were knocked out of the League Cup at the same semi final stage as we were?! Poor old Wael - not having a great season is he? Still, these things take time.

Hopefully, he won't ever have to suffer at the mouths of gas heads, should they do the unusual and finish above, or beat us, as some of us older supporters have had to endure.

As we know, they still try to proclaim themselves as the oldest, best, better supported club in Bristol, when all the facts, that's "all the facts" prove otherwise. Their biggest successes are actually our failures and celebrated as such.

Didn't realise you could get football stadia on Gumtree. Well done Wael, very thrifty. Even picked it up himself.

Don't know if it's been brought to anyone's attention but, a letter in tonight's Post, reminds us that Rovers actually beat the Busby Babes, when they were the best team that there has ever been.

A lot of older sags like to bang on about that 50s team  being the best ever in Bristol, totally ignoring our spells in the top flight of course.  #gaslogic

Almost. Duncan Edwards didn't play that day. But anyway, a fine effort from "the" Rovers, as Man Utd won the league that season.

They have always been deluded.

Every dog has his day and, every team has an off day. Fair play to them for seeing off MUFC on what was a quagmire of a pitch, sixty odd years ago.  How they managed to play on that I don't know.

What a suprise, they are still trying to steal some of our limelight. 

‘Oh don’t forget about us, blah, blah, blah’

Wish they’d just all piss off.

Especially the Bristol City side of the early 1900s who finishes runners up in the Football League, appeared in an FA Cup Final and until this season jointly held the League record for most games won in a row.

Think that beats a couple of good seasons in the second tier.

During the era of the maximum wage.  Soon as that was lifted and Rovers had to compete commercially their decline into obscurity went into a tail spin.

They have not finished in the top half of England's second tier since those sepia-tinted days of jumpers-for-goalposts, since 1960. 

If we finish 7th or higher this season, that will be a higher finish - another one - in the 92 than they have ever finished, in their entire miserable history.
