Bristol Rovers Dustbin Thread

Okay, it's the component parts of Bristol Sport that could be described as such then, in fact I think I have even heard Lansdown describe them as such (albeit things like the basketball) City may or may not be a franchise, and if I were a City fan, I probably wouldn't give two ***** whether they are or not. However, if calling City fans 'Franchise' is known to annoy some City fans, I'm sure you will hear a lot more of it!

Bristol Sport is in effect an overarching management company that provides common services to the football, rugby and basketball operations. A lot more efficient than each doing its own thing.

I'm surprised somebody of your obvious intelligence could look at the definition of franchise and conclude that Bristol Sport is one.

Not that it matters but it is rather pathetic that Gasheads cling on to franchise as a term of abuse because they are so far behind in every respect.

Still, unique kit, most loyal fanbase, loved by the fans of every other club etc. etc.

Well quite. Bristol Sport is the servant, not the master.

I can see another classic episode.....”I’ve been through the thatcher years, divorce....but this is heartbreaking, they took they’re eye off the ball, all about the new cabbage bowl...they forgot about the team”

First home game of the season, dismal

That new 20k stadium can’t come quick enough 🤣

Seriously though, first home game of the season...that is ******* abysmal.

In the pre match threads, they still refer to Wycombe as The Cheats".:grr:

Now the game is over; http://gaschat.co.uk/thread/14832/bristol-rovers-wycombe-wanderers-official?page=8

Dreadful negative performance.
Coughlan always sets up for a 0-0 imo,reminds me of ian atkins but not as good.

Absolutely shocking, glad I didn’t purchase a season ticket. £20 down the ******* drain.

I actually think new owners might put them in administration to clear the debt then rebuild separately

cant see any other way of reducing the enormous cost of the redevelopment  

They only have debt to their owners, Al Quadi.

To be fair though, Plymouth are a bigger club than the squatters.

You are forgetting that there was a cancelled air balloon fiesta that families would have been heading for, only to find it was cancellation and they'd have been looking for another day out...

What? Eh? Have I got this wrong?!?!!!

They’re away to Coventry next week at St Andrews.  So the challenge is on.  Will they take more than we did today.  Their bollocks about having a greater away support than us is finally on the line.

Wouldn’t be at all surprised to see them take a couple of thousand, nice ground they wouldn’t of visited to often in the past, just up the road and a day out in the ‘second City’

They'll definitely all be locked out next week, as they'll end up at the Ricoh instead...

The only figures that matter are the end of season average for the whole campaign. To the best of my knowledge they haven’t bettered our away support figures this century and certainly not since 2012.

There is no challenge, Gasheads saying they have better away support than us are talking bollocks and the statistics prove this.

They will take over 2000 next week but then they’ve only visited St Andrew’s twice in the last 25 years. Like their trips in the cup to places like Molineux the novelty factor will bump up there attendance for this game. Then it’ll be back to the usual 400-500 for the trips to grounds they visit every season.

....and some on there calling for Coughlan to be sacked! Thought it was only ‘da shit’ who got on their managers’ backs according to them?!

Loyal and true though, loyal and true ....

If I was a Gas Head I would be asking what the Consortium is planning regarding the development at the ‘Colony’?

There should be no planning issues holding up the works at this site and as they are on a rolling tenancy at their current hovel, surely if they are genuinely investing in BRFC, then this should surely be their first capital spend? 

I wonder why nothing has been mentioned?

Gotta chuckle at the 'big' screen.

Take away the big screen and this could be a picture from any non-league game -There is  No crowd or stands, the houses in background are clearly on view etc, mostly what you can see is just some hoardings and a bunch of players and staff milling about.

Franchise doesn't annoy me, but tinpot annoys the sags though.

I think your average sag gets the word franchise mixed up with the word envy, THAT is clearly evident.

We could always count on roughly double the attendance of the squatters over the last decade. This week, our opening day gate was 3 times the size of theirs. Coming for us..
