They only took 500 up to London today, another pathetic following.

Too busy sliming around Millenium Square dishing out blow jobs to Swansea fans I expect...

OK, the Rovers' results have improved and they are now near the play offs, so well done. Remember history repeats itself.

Will this season pan out as the 1999/2000 did? After 45 games gas were in the play off places and would only miss out if they lost the final game; home to already relegated Cardiff and Millwall managed also to win. You've guessed it Rovers 0 - Cardiff 1 and Millwall 1 - Oxford 0.

To compound matters, the following season Rovers were relegated and have remained below City ever since.

Their entire home crowd is little more than a prem away following.

When optimism is in short supply you're not going to pull in the casuals or new fans.

Their delusions of grandeur of the previous seasons have drained away and the mood is sour at the Mem; the denizens of Gaschat have crunched their rose tinted spectacles under foot and can now see what we have been laughing about since the AQs took over.

Though they aren't finding it as funny for some reason.

I remember it too I think. We were celebrating a 3-0 (?) meaningless win over PNE like we`d won the league because of it IIRC.

And the PNE fans were celebrating with us because they’d beaten da gas in their run in to help scupper their promotion chances - it seems we’ve always got on well with Preston fans - I know quite a few now through football, they like us but I certainly wouldn’t gloat like a sad sag that they like us more than the fewers ...

Do you think having no pay at the gate turnstiles has put people off coming to matches, I know several season ticket holders like myself who have not attended cup games, because of having the inconvenience of having to go through the bother

of buying a ticket to enter.

So he thinks fans are boycotting league games in their droves because cup tickets must be purchased in advance?

AIM listed ConnieFrancis Investment Co have upped their bid for Bristol Rovers 1883 Ltd after the League 1 side’s recent run of startling results. Connie’s elusive chairman Bob Where said he was impressed by manager Graham Coughlan’s effective use of the 7-0-2-1 system and liked the look of Ed Upson. If the team continue to annihilate footballing giants such Lincoln City and AFC Wimbledon I fear market pressure will force even further concession from our side quipped the ebullient Where.

Analysts have speculated the bid to be in the range £1 to £3 billion but since negotiations are subject to strict confidentiality agreements little official has been leaked. There have been rumors of a boardroom split at the Bristols end with current President Wael Al-Qadi saying he wants to be where the boys are and Director Ken Masterful claiming the President is playing stupid cupid. Former Chairman Nicholas Higgs tried to distance himself from the dispute but in doing so fell over a chair and crashed to the floor crying out “you always hurt the one you love”.

It's also hot in Australia and they might even understand your rather coloqual turnip English. I'm sure you could get yourself up to their standard of football eventually, that's if you can avoid getting the Spanish archer, the one thing Spanish that you do understand very well.

They are still moaning that poor attendances are linked to the fact you can't pay cash at the turnstile.

Apparently you have to go to a ticket tent to buy your ticket and then go in. Just like pretty much every other club has done for the last decade.

Maybe they are right.

Maybe at every home game three thousand fans arrive at the ground, go to the turnstile to pay, find themselves directed to the ticket off twenty yards away, and then decide that it's all become far too complicated and go home instead.

And do the same on alternate Saturdays through the season.

I take it that now they haven't lost for a few games they must be coming for us again!

The sags have hardly played anyone any good so far and the two games against teams higher in League One they lost them both .Beating Wimbledon was a good result away but they are a terrible side and will be the first team Bolton catch if they get theyre act together . Lets see how the sags do when they play the better teams .
