Thats true though isnt it?

Does calling a league by a different name make it any different.

Division 1 is the same as the premier league

div 2 the championship and league one is the poxy third division.

Makes me laugh when they say alan shearer was the all time top premier league goalscorer,he wasnt jimmy greaves scored loads more goals.

Did Jimmy Greaves even play a game after 1992, when football started..?!

Were Brentford even in the 2nd Division the last time Rovers were 25 years ago?

Still, it's not like a Saghead to lie through his teeth about attendances...

Oh wait...yes it is, it's their favourite hobby.

Speaking of lies, 'Jarman' who made the original 95% claim hasn't responded to my post even though he's since contributed on another thread. They seem to just come on here, spout bullshit that their mates on Slagchat have told them and then go missing when you prove them wrong.

Its 'what they do'.

When they spout their lies on their own sites, there's no opposition, just kindred spirits who like to tell themselves how great they are. They can spout any old crap and their fellow losers lap it up. It's become the norm for them as they don't let fans of other clubs onto their forums, unlike proper clubs.

They're an embarrassment TBH.

What, like calling the Banarama Conference "division 5" ?

Well that's a surprise.

What happened to plans U, W, E?

Yes you can, but it is complicated.  You have to phone up and pay - they reserve the tickets in your name BUT they won't release the tickets to you until you POST the appropriate voucher to them (Voucher K, I think).  You also have to send them a self addressed and stamped envelope too.  When they receive your voucher, they send you the tickets in the SAE envelop that you have sent them.  

Alternatively you can just take a risk that there will be some left in the shop on Saturday.

The last episode of Swap Shop was broadcast in March 1982 when the sags were mid table in the 3rd division. Haven't they come a long way since then. 

These things take time.

1992-93 season; Rovers & Brentford relegated together from the 2nd tier. It was titled "Division 1" then as the Prem had just started causing the League to retitle their divisions..

Here's a good 'un.......

" We’re a fantastic club with loyal fans who support our club through thick and thin whether we’ve got a great manager a pathetic one , good owners , bad ones we never turn our back on our club unlike the 82ers.
11,000 saw us relegated from the football league we averaged about 7,000
non league and we’ve bounced back to league 1 with the help of that loyal support.
I’d recommend the north terrace behind the goal if you like
atmosphere and standing it holds 4000 and there’s a bar behind it and the foods decent too.
The toilets are crap so have a turn out before you arrive.
FTG. "

******* hate the arrogance of them tbh. Gets up my nose that they still think they're loyal and fantastic and faithful, rather than just exactly the same as every other club in the country. Strange lot.

They averaged 6,628 for that season. Lowest crowd was 4861. Highest was their last game at 11,065. Total for the season was 152,440.......which is equal to about 7 of our attendances this season.

If we averaged 20,500 in the League this season that would give us 471,500 over 23 games.

11000 saw them relegated? Trying to make it sound like they knew they were going down...

The boneheads were throwing a party before that Mansfield game to celebrate staying up by the skin of their teeth....or so they thought. :laughcont:

They didn’t average 7000 in Non League, or the year before when their team really needed them. You look at their average attendances over the years and there’s loads of 5/6000s. Pathetic support for a club in one of the biggest City’s in England.

We get relegated to L1 with that clown O’Driscoll in charge after one of the most depressing seasons in my memory and we sell 8500 STs. They get promoted to L1 with the club on a high with new supposedly ‘wealthy’ owners promising all sorts and only manage to sell a poxy 5000 STs. Gasheads have been turning their backs on their club for decades.

They aren’t anything special, small club with bitter fans pretending to be more loyal than everyone else despite the fact they can’t even fill their tiny ground when they’re doing reasonably well.

The official attendance at their epic relegation match vs the mighty Mansfield was just 10,594 including away supporters and we're told, "a load of Teds". I guess that nearer only 10,000 of their supporters were there to witness the birth of the 15ers. No doubt there would have been more of them present had they only put sae's in with their ticket applications.

Their average attendance season 87/88 was 3,246, 88/89 was 3,657.

Another day, another whopping lie.

Others have commented on the rest of the inaccuracies, but I thought I would correct this bit for them.
