Anyone feel we need the gas to offer up some new material for us as they don't seemed to have gaffed for a few weeks?

No worries.

Their new season starts on Saturday. I’m sure it will packed full of new material for us.

How very odd, and the comment by Cocklan doesn't sound promising at all. Sorry if this has been posted previously, if so I have certainly missed it!

 

UCD manager Collie O’Neill has revealed that the college remain in the dark over Liam Scales’ proposed transfer to Bristol Rovers.

The Republic of Ireland under-21 defender travelled to Bristol to discuss terms with the League One club, managed by Dubliner Graham Coughlan, in the first week of July.

The Wicklow native appeared happy to knock back the advances of Fleetwood Town, who lodged a late bid, and sign up with the Pirates but progress has been frustratingly slow.

Scales hasn’t lined out for the Students since, nor has he trained with his teammates, and will remain in limbo until a cash-strapped Rovers outfit push through the deal.

“There’s absolutely [happening] nothing on it,” O’Neill told extratime.ie.

“It’s still stalled. We’re still told we’re just waiting on a final bit of paperwork but… nothing. It’s dragging on a little.”

Contrary to media reports suggesting Joey Barton’s Fleetwood had turned his head with a larger offer, the defender has his heart set on Bristol.

“Bristol were in for him and it was more or less done, and then Fleetwood come in as well , but he had his mind made up Bristol was the one he wanted to go to.

“So that’s where it was left, but it was just left with paperwork to be done. It just seemed to drag on.”

Coughlan expanded on the hold-up, speaking to Bristol Live, and hinted that the issue is at his own club’s end.

“There is obviously an issue with the paperwork as we all know,” he said.

“There are one or two minor details which need tidying up, which need sorting out, whether we do that or not I don’t know?

“It is out of my hands now, I have passed it onto the powers that be [at Rovers] - he is a player I have identified and I liked.”

apart from agreeing to sign scales from UCD but not actually being able to afford to pay for him leaving both UCD and Scales in Limbo

Apparently Rovers couldn’t afford the Ryanair flight from Dublin to Bristol

personally I quite like being reminded about 1982 ,although it was a dark time to be a city fan the few years that followed were my best years following city  Terry coopers red and white army ,1nil down 2.1 up and all that followed made me appreciate my club a lot more than when we were watching us play in the top division . coypal

Does anyone else find it strange that we have signed 3 former Chelsea players on permanent deals and the Fewers haven't signed any?

Give that Wally is a massive Chelsea fan (with connections, apparently), and given just how wealthy he is, I am amazed they weren't in the frame.

Seriously though, I do recall the Fewers expecting to take Chelsea youth players on loan, thanks to a special relationship.

Chelsea want to loan their players out to teams who can give them the proper footballing experience, not to hoofball clubs who just try to continuously kick the ball into outer space for 90 minutes.

Darrell is starting to spill the beans so it could get interesting ...

“I got too involved with politics at Bristol Rovers. It was two years of broken promises that led to a fallout"

Wally? Broken promises? Surely not?

Their confirmation bias is just insane over there, anything that goes against it is shut out, what an awful way to live.

Wally is probably still trying figure out how to transfer camels in to Tilsons.

"UCD boss Collie O'Neill criticised Rovers for not being fair to the player over how slow things were after paperwork was blamed for the hold-up"

Wow! That article mentions the "murky world, dark alleys and grey areas" of football transfers. Nothing any different to the usual shenanigans that go on I should imagine.

What a load of crap! If they want the player (and he is keen to go there) just f'kin sign him. Or maybe it's just an excuse cos the Sags haven't got a pot to piss in...

It would also appear that we have all missed this from Gas chat. Is this a new calamity to strike them (probably our fault)

 

Disclosed the score board cant be used as we don’t have enough power and the groundsman has the wrong kit. No one else has mentioned this

Just put up a sign saying Bristol Rovers Nil.  With the calibre of their strike force that will do for most of the season.

Of course gas heads are saying that this is good work by the club. Claiming that UCD and their Management are to blame and that this is a double bluff by the Rovers to get the deal done. One even saying that they should let him sign for someone like Fleetwood and then “pick him up from a club that deals professionally” :) . Obviously they are such a huge club they can do this.

See if you can find an Electrical wholesaler while you are there Miah

Apparently your big screen when it eventually arrived , before they had issues installing it , now can’t work as you don’t have a proper power supply , the correct cabling for it 

 

It would seem you never had the right power supply / cabling ......but there again I guess somebody could have driven a tent peg through it ?

Consistent. I’ll give them that.

They are one of a kind, unique even, as they so often love to claim. The most tinpot club I’ve ever known, the things that have happened over the years with them is beyond belief, or comical to us. 

Absolute shambles from top to bottom, bordering on fraud to be calling themselves a ‘Professional Football Club’

Sagshat is a fun read atm , tearing lumps out of each other , and the Club , and the owners , Chairman , Chief Exec , the Supporters Club

 

I Guess it’s the stress hoping  their  accquisition from non league in Ireland is signing  (24 pages 🤣)

I hope they realise we’ve had similar worries about Kalas , DaSilva, Palmer etc

So they were blaming the Irish media on the transfer being leaked. Today they were blaming the Scottish media for releasing a story about a player signing for Cheltenham before the club released it . Always someone else’s fault. Maybe because you’re club is shit and unprofessional that murky waters appear

Let me guess?.....For some supporters they penny has dropped that Hani says ‘No’, Wally is a really nice bloke but has no other answer than “These things take (until the end of) time”, Hamer is just a PR puppet dumped in front of the TV to give cryptic messages with no substance, but the rest of the deluded 40+ thousand fans locked out have turned against the enlightened ones?

....and meanwhile we are signing quality players, including three from a premier league club, for millions of pounds without actually spending much money at all because we developed an academy player into a premier league player and his transfer financed just about all of our incomings - that must sting if you’re one of the unique, universally loved sags ...

Interesting. On gaschat there is a thread about Bury and Bolton. On here, there is a lot of sympathy for those teams’ fans. On Gaschat, the prevailing view is “kick them out of the league”. This will make me less sympathetic when the same thing happens to them.
