Bristol Rovers Dustbin Thread

Just seen the goals from their game, you could say they didn’t take the Accrington player winding them up too well after scoring his pen.

Cricket was on mate so they couldn’t afford to attend both, so the missing 100,000 fv@ked off to the Cricket instead.

No, cos the bloke who takes the tenner cash on the disabled exit gate was on the back gate at the county ground too... double bubble!

Well they are on their way down again and they have nothing to look forward to.

It baffles me though how clubs like Scunthorpe, Burton and Yeovil can get to the championship but rovers can't. Even since their last time in the second tier there has been Walsall, Grimsby, Colchester, Southend, Crewe etc.

6,500 is pretty disgusting though for a league football game in a city the size of Bristol.  They must be truly embarassed by that when their neighbours average over 20000.

The real problem though is if only six and a half thousand are coming through the gate and their breakeven figure is at least 10k, then it seems that they will become insolvent more quickly than I thought.

Add to that, the fact that the price of land remains static, leaving them no room to raise any further debt on the Mem and you have a huge problem.

Never mind though, some mythological investor is going to stump up 30 or 40 million to buy the fruit market from someone who does not want to sell the fruit market and conjure up a new 20000 seater stadium for them, which will look a bit sick with 6.5k sat inside it and even that assumes that someone is going to pay £12m to buy the Mem and build houses on it (subject to planning permission of course and no objections to demolishing and building upon a war memorial along with no claims of it being a village green by the local dog walkers).

Didn’t the fewers say they would watch them from the pavement?  

That suits them - they don’t bother going to the Minimal Ground, they don’t like paying when they do attend and the concrete gives them some kind of ‘retro’ football feelings.

If they keep going at this rate, they might all be out on the streets soon 🤞

Gary/Lee Johnson (both would need a frontal lobotomy to even consider it) would be about as popular as skeletor becoming the head coach at City. Still we'd probably sign his mate Neymarrr on the back of it.

Deluded or what. They have absolutely no idea of reality and live inside some 1970's dream world.

YOU'VE GOT NO MONEY.

Responding to the 10,000 break-even call, the Gas duly obliged with crowds of 6,500 when their team had won every home game. 

It's what they do.

Most of the fans on their forum are clear on this.

£3m annual losses plus another £1m from the low gates this season means that the club is staring down the barrel of administration and their ground being sold to recoup the AQ's money.

It cannot continue as it is for even three more seasons and they know it; hence the repeated eager leaping upon every wild rumour of new ground or owners.

I thought the 10k breakeven figure was quoted by the previous administration, when the losses were far lower.

It's all a bit Alanis Morissette for them.

personally id have thought 6500 was pretty good considering the facts that the ground is a dump,their players are shite and the nature of fellow supporters is truly atrocious.

who in their right mind would attend there to watch pub league football, risk getting your head punched and possibly end up in the bri with food poisoning.

That's as maybe. 

The key point is that 2000 fans have decided it's no longer for them, despite being in the same division with similar results etc.

Our ladies team managed to attract 3000 on Saturday, I think it's safe to say that THEY are coming for them.

1500 season tickets less this season according to one on Sagshat - that’s has to be a near %25 drop off

With the drop in ST income and a drop in attendances, that 65k per week that they are losing must now easily be closer to 75k which is a snake a month.

The longer that goes on, the closer they come to administration.

They can't be too far off now :)

For a shite club such as them it generally isn’t too bad, but how they continue to tell everyone how amazing their fanbase is and how loyal they are, then it is absolutely piss poor. Summed up in a nutshell in @Silvio Dante‘s post.

Then in typical Sag fashion, make up complete bullshit as below:

If we are missing 2000, can always do what other teams over the river do, give loads away to bolster the attendance....but money's no object to some.

When have they ever had the same level of support as Boro, Southampton, West Ham 😂😂😂😂Wolves, Blackburn, Derby etc ? I've had a shit weekend but that has really cheered me up, f.....g hilarious, in all honesty where the f..k do they get them from, do they really believe they are on par with those clubs, they are on par with Swindon, Exeter, Yeovil, Plymouth( although Plymouth much  bigger) some Bath City fans I know look upon Rovers as a rival 😆😆😆😆

By 'money no object' what they mean is;

Target schools so that empty seats are gifted to fans of the future. These kids will doubtless buy a drink and visit the club shop.

As most other forward thinking clubs do.

I bloody well hope not. The place is a chuffing health hazard.

Still, the Evil Post today states that the Wally family are amongst the richest owners in the league with a fortune of 400 million, so I guess 40 million for a new stadium should be no problem.

You have got to credit the Gas though in that how can a WHOLE FANBASE be so deluded the day after they got 6,400 of their own through the turnstiles . Comparing yourself to a club that get 50k home gates😂😂 Not one poster has asked the guy if he’s on crack cocaine.......

Yes, we do give some free tickets away......to local schools and sports clubs as these are the fans of the future.

Yes we do give our freebies now and then but not as many as some think especially that Sag, and it certainly doesn’t or intended to ‘bolster’ our attendance.
