He means that Gerry the Mullet played for England, I think. 

His players top flight claims is just bollocks..!

So, he or she got both ‘facts’ woefully incorrect - standard gashead dialogue ...

"I started watching Rovers at Eastville. Great time there which went sour at the end as we were forced to leave what was the best site in Bristol of any football stadium. What if we still owned it now! 
We were forced out because we didn't own the site. Exiled for 10 years in Bath we crept back to Bristol as tenants of Bristol Rugby. 
So what did Geoff Dunford ever do for us? L3 Champions beating some other team to it. Promoted to tier 2 with an ex England manager. Every player from that squad went on to play in the top tier of English football. Has any other local team achieved that?
Dunford then achieved the near impossible at that time and we now own a stadium."

Who's the ex England manager?

Devon white did actually play in the prem/division 1 surprisingly good record of goals per game played 9 goals in 16 starts and 9 sub apps , think only him  steve yates , nigel martyn, marcus browning, penrice and hollowhead ever played top level

And I don't think Marcus Browning did either! Vaughan Jones should have.

Spot on; as the criterion for Notts County losing their crown is the loss of continuous league membership then Rovers with their four years' continuous league membership is one of the newest league teams beaten only by Forest Green Rovers.

The gash conveniently forget that our 1976 squad not only went on to play in the Top league but spent four seasons there. In fact it was the 2nd time our club had been in the Top flight. No doubt the tea ladies and ground staff also joined them .

Yes, four whole years as a League club. 

Well done them 👏

What are we on now? Something like 119 consecutive seasons as a football league club?

Assuming they don’t hilariously drop out of the Football League again, they only have to wait 115 years to match our current tally.  🤣🤣

I do love it when some d1ckhead gives me an excuse to point this out.

I think most of us would be fairly surprised if they last another 115 WEEKS, let alone years..! 

...and I mean in existence, not just with League status..!

Did Rovers actually lose their league status..? I know every other club that gets relegated from League 2 does, I’m sure that Rovers’ fans put us well and truly in our place and stopped our celebrations and mockery in their tracks, by clarifying that they’d actually only gone down to “level 5”

I am amazed that with so many ITK fans they have, none of them have provided an explanation for the change to share capital or the closure of some their subsidiaries, as reported on here weeks ago.

This is the Amici incident I presume. Of course they line up to get autographs of Boatsy Clarke when he's in Bristol so they would believe any such shite wouldn't they.

You`d think with their prowed record of horse punching, racism, sexual assault, ground stealing, making up stories about disabled fans being attacked, stealing from their own supporters club, `sharing` season tickets and attacking their own players they`d draw their horns in a bit.

Inside the peanut brain of the average Saghead it probably seems totally believable that a children’s party would be held inside a Wine Bar? I’ve got kids and I can think of better places for a 10th birthday party 🤔

I wasn’t present but I thought it was the Forest fans who ran in there after realising they’d bitten off more than they could chew? 

Pretty sure no City fans were targeting kids, that’s more of a Gas thing to do.

It could possibly be one of the funniest seasons to come if they go down. Bolton and bury have had points deductions so it looks like there’s only two relegation places to go for. They couldn’t could they ?

If anything both City and Rovers fans have some absolute mongs supporting them.

But one thing I'm glad we don't have is a racist sect of fans. I'm gonna throw the gashead line that I know mates who see it all the time in their end behind the goal.

Always had a racist element, back in the Eastville days many of the tote end mob had links to the National Front.

I 'met' Alan Ball back in the 1970s when he was training with England at Ashton Gate prior to a Home Nations match away to Wales in Cardiff.

Just like you, I was somewhat starstruck, but the late Alan Ball, accompanied by the also sadly-departed Ralph Coates, put me at ease, and both were more than happy to answer my inane, schoolboy questions about life as an international footballer: sadly, my abiding memory of that meeting remains Alan Ball's high-pitched voice.

As I recall, he died as a result of a heart attack trying to extinguish a bonfire in his garden.
