Bristol Rovers Dustbin Thread

I have a dream.

 

I have a dream that one day there will be 3 forums. One for the sags, one for us and a third.

 

The legendary third forum should consist of a community. Sags could talk about Teds and Teds could talk about sags. Sags could pretend to be teds and talk about the sags to teds, and teds could pretend to be sags and talk about teds to the sags. 

 

The third forum has a wonderful community if you ask me. I mean, the probability of picking a random forum member and them having more than 10 fingers does shoot up dramatically, but they're not a bad bunch really...

I guess we are lucky in as much as Southampton are as far away as they are.must be harder in places where there is more than ONE REAL TEAM  IN A CITY..

Not sure of the current situation or , the regs etc but back then they certainly had a ‘Centre of excellence in Bath and we’re sweeping up most of  the best kids around Bristol , Bath & South Wales

It didn’t help that the Gas were a bit of a shambles and , post 82 we were still trying to put in place some sort of network to find and develop those up to age of 16 (When YTS was order of the day)   , We had nothing of a structure until JJ came in 

 

They've definitely still got a base in Bath. In fact, Louis Carey is the U16 coach there!

When I was involved in kids football it was always Southampton snapping up the best kids (Brian Tinnion was involved with them).

I always thought it was a crying shame, these kids who were half decent , getting picked up at ridiculously young ages and in many cases their parents encouraging it.

Let them play with their mates, if they really are good enough the clubs will get them when it matters.

We used to live in Southport and my daughter grew up with a group that included Jack Rodwell. He had been signed to Everton at a very early age. He wasn’t allowed to play for the school football team and was exempted from a lot of games lesson activities. Consequently, never experienced the joys of a kickabout with his mates.

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.

If you are going to make a point about racism and idiotic fans, it's probably best not to use a racist (and insulting to Down's Syndrome) word to describe them.

Agree with this 100%

My boy will be going into u7's next season and about 5/6 of them have been snapped up by City, all of them aged SIX!! Far too early for them to even understand.

Down’s syndrome can’t be insulted but people and their families with downs syndrome could be your frankly insulting and I’ll thought out remarks! They’re a people and tar them with the same brush is disgusting!

To be fair, that’s a bit like saying that calling someone a

bar-steward (you know what I mean) is actually an accusation of illegitimate parental status at the time of their birth. It’s usually not, and just implies that you think they’re a bit of an arse.

isn't it something to do with them having a percentage of citys catchment area due to them being partially surrounded by the sea?

seem to recall this being discussed not too long ago and must have been on here as I don't go on other forums

 

This was certainly the case in the late 90's. To be fair they didn't get the all of the cream though as City's age groups would regularly spank them.

Are you trying to make a point there? 

The word “person I disagree with” is racist in origin and was used against people who have Down’s Syndrome. 

I wasn’t having a go at Kodjias Wrist as I know people use the word without realising what it means. 

I guess my post should have had “Down’s Syndrome people”, apologies for missing out a word. There were bugger all insults in my post though.

No point really it’s just the word person I disagree with isn’t mutually exclusive to Down syndrome any more than idiot or imbecile! Words and meanings change! 

The word person I disagree with is sort for mongrel as far as I was aware when I was kid (not that I used it)! 

No offense meant but people get far to offended for everything these days!

Words do change, but "person I disagree with" has a very clear meaning.  Nobody here was offended by the use of the word, I was just pointing out the irony of a post about racism that used the word.

It's no biggie though, I can't be arsed to argue on this.

Apologies if the thread was derailed. I agree with getting back to taking the piss out of the ragbag lot from down the road.

He didn’t invent it he stole the idea and patented first.

He never spoke to his wife or mother on the phone ever. Any idea why without googling it? 

Both his wife and mother were deaf, hence his interest in speech and hearing  - something I remember from my junior schooldays: I may be wrong - it was a long time ago - but I seem to recall that he refused to actually use the telephone.

One thing that has always intrigued/amused me is that we often say 'I'll give him a call, or a 'bell': isn't it a lovely coincidence that the name of the telephone's inventor is so closely aligned with his actual invention?

Alexander Graham Bell is not the only inventor to have his name incorporated in to everyday language: just think of Hoover and, of course, who could ever forget the famous English plumber, Thomas Crapper?

Rovers, 1883?

Rovers weren't even admitted to the Football League until 1920.

19 years behind us.

One of the oldest LEAGUE clubs? They're not even a hundred years old.

And as stated, arguably just 4 years old.

They weren’t called Bristol Rovers until 1899 either ...

I can certainly see another season coming where we are fighting for promotion, they are battling against relegation, our crowds are going up, theirs falling and them boasting that they have the best fans in the world because they actually have nothing to boast about and never had.

Looking forward to it, but they are coming for us 😀

From an HITC article by Peter O'Rourke ... 

Bristol Rovers are reluctant to lose their star striker, but they could be forced to cash-in on Clarke-Harris for the right offer due to tight finances at the club.

Clarke-Harris is understood to have a buy-out in his contract and Bristol Rovers are bracing themselves for offers for the former Oldham and Rotherham forward

I actually wish SL would buy them via some third party then sell the ground to get the purchase price back and send them to Twerton "whilst projects are being explored"
