Closest I've found is 17/18.

Pikeys had an average of 840

We had 1240

On the face of it that is remarkably close, would be good to know if we had more in the way of long distance journeys than them though I.e. Sunderland, Boro, Hull etc

Four hundred difference is quite large considering rovers were off the back of a near miss to top six following consecutive promotions.

I see that a Tory MP has "crossed the floor" to become a Lib Dem

I know that Matty Taylor's transfer got their knickers in a twist, but do you know of a fan who has "crossed the floor" from blue to red in Bristol?

When I was growing up, around 16 or 17 the house next to mine was occupied by 3 boys around the same age. 2 were utter ***** but the other one I grew quite close to and we became good mates. Years later he got married, and I met his father in law. Who actually believe it or not supports BOTH City & Rovers. I couldn't believe my ears, and my recall of the situation is rusty and I can't remember his reasoning. But I do remember he told me he had a season ticket for both clubs, and would attend each game individually as long as there wasn't a City game or a Rovers game at the same time, if this happened he would just do one and then another. So a City game when both were on, and then a Rovers game, but if only one club was playing he'd go watch that!

 

I suppose you could also count myself, as I believe I went to a few games at Ashton Gate when I was 4 or 5 with my late City-supporting step dad, but my dad (bless his heart) had had a rough childhood and so didn't know how to bond with me, and so he asked if he could take me to Eastville because the only thing that he thought would help us bond was going to watch Rovers, and so around 6 or so I suppose I did switch sides!

My late step dad was a wonderful man, when my dad saw himself unexpectedly out of the job he realised he couldn't fund buying both him and me a season ticket, and so my step dad offered to and paid for them. Yes, you heard that right! A City supporter paid for 2 Rovers supporters to have season tickets, was such a wonderful man! Not someone who switched though no.

When you’ve previously won the trophy with a much bigger club it must be difficult to find the motivation. #agentlitts

A neighbour and older friend of mine went by the name of Blackjack - some may remember him ?

He was a prominent Rovers supporter for some years but, and I never knew why as I lost contact over the years, he later became a city supporter.

He'd be lost with todays sanitised "football experience."

Gas Logic=: The size of a club is decided by the ratio between their home and away fans. As their home crowds are pitiful but their away crowds are average that makes them massive.

 

Makes them far bigger than Man U then.

Was this the same Blackjack form Hartcliffe/Withywood area? (can't remember which exactly) who used to frequent the East End every home game in the late 60s/early 70s.  I knew that one well until I left the area for a short while due to work during the 70s.  I never knew that one as a gashead!!!

It’s not remarkably close, especially as they claim to travel everywhere in much larger numbers than us and our away support is supposedly ‘shit’.

This guy is confused..........

"There are many causes, much more important that Rovers, and if I was to invest in Football it would be in a new ground for Frome, one that would last them a good 20 odd years and one where they had, a café, restaurant, bar and whatever so that they could survive. I think you can make a huge difference to a small club rather than watch a big club piss it against the wall"

it looks like he thinks they are a big club?

It also looks like he thinks they've got a wall!

According to radio Bristol 96 away fans.

Does this mean they are still boycotting this competition or as a proportion of their home vs away support, because their home support is so shit, this merely confirms that they travel away in massive numbers because it's 'what they do'?

Either that or they were staying at home watching the Brexit debate....any reason not to go.

Tom Nicholls scored again. Must be worth £10m by now. Shame about the 30p buy out clause.

Away support not even into 3 figures. Embarrassing.

Losing to Plymouth reserves. Even more embarassing 

Losing on penalties, Terribly embarrassing.

Ask any Rovers fan about travelling to away games and the first line they generally trot out is that ‘shitheads’ (said with gritted teeth and a seething sneer) are fair weather supporters unlike them who are faithful and true. Then you’ll hear about Ashton Gate being a library followed by ‘shitheads’ (said with gritted teeth with a seething sneer) moaning expecting to be top of the league by some divine right because they are arrogant and deluded.

Finally, ‘shitheads’ (said with gritted teeth and a seething sneer) spit at old ladies and they also spit at their own players as soon as they have a bad game because City are a vile so-called ‘family’ club, Matty Taylor is a snake, 1982, Dean Windass.

All this justification totalled up in their heads proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that they travel in numbers and we just turn up when the going is good.

Yeah, saw him at Fulham in '72, told him I thought he was Rovers, he replied "**** the Rovers", knew quite a few back in the day who switched to City, apparently it was a better laugh with our lot

A lad I grew up with kept "crossing the floor".

He started as Gas, switched to City, went back to the Gas, then back to City and ended up as a Man U fan.

I haven't seen him in over 20 years, but I would happily bet a lot of money that he supports Man City now.
