Bristol Rovers Dustbin Thread

Sky probably just assumed that it was time the Fewers signed someone people might know.

Rather than the usual headline of 'Dreams shattered as The Blue Few can't afford to sign an Irish schoolboy'.

Which I believe happened in the summer.

No, they could afford him - it was the cost of flying him over on Ryanair that was the deal breaker. The £27.99 hadn`t been allowed for in the budget.

It was probably a Fewer who done it on purpose that works at Sky, just to make them feel relevant.

So what do you think are the plus’s of playing that lot then apart from what I’ve mentioned above? You want them to join us in the Championship to get the league derbies back again yet even if they did I have no doubts that both games would get moved to midday kick offs which on its own takes away a lot of the atmosphere.

Good point. No way would that be allowed to kick off at a normal time.

Absolutely guaranteed.

12:00 KO Sunday lunchtime, keep the Police and Sky TV happy. No doubt the club would prefer it as well. I can’t see a return of the days of knocking off work at lunchtime, spending all afternoon drinking in Bedminster before watching a Bristol Derby under the lights.

Personally, I’ve don’t miss derby matches one bit. I hope that we never have cause to play a league match against them ever again. 

Why any self respecting City supporter would ever want to see the 15ers promoted is beyond my feeble comprehension. I want them to lose every game they play. 

COYR. FTG. 

Exactly this - the sooner they vanish off our radar for good the better

You try and get an original design nowadays. They all have these stupid slanted pockets in the side and are called truckers jackets, or so I was told yesterday by the salesman in Dulay. Two buttons done up on the chest and left to flair open.

Certainly don’t want them worthy of competing against in a league fixture again, ever. 
The odd opportunity to batter them in a cup tie might be fun though...! 😉

Don’t know if this is real?

Looks genuine, hilarious if so. Shows his opinion deep down about the club he now plays for.

Could’ve used many different examples but picked Bristol 🤣

Just shows how they are viewed by others outside the City....despite what terrified opposition fans tell them when they’re cornered in ‘the Welly’ by needy, dribbling Sags.

 

Either it wasn't real or the tweet's been deleted

Let that shower of shit rot in the lower leagues forever, and their deluded muppet fan base talk about their potential and “incredible away support”, they’re a giant shit stain on this city.

So, on sky’s error this afternoon regarding the Rodri signing for Bristol ‘Rovers’, another absolute belter..........
 

Breaking news shitheads. For all the money you’ve spent on team and ground and time spent playing at a higher level you still regularly get mixed up with us by fans, national media, and even the people that run the bloody game!

:facepalm:

Typical sag losers mentality. Preferring to revel in the fact that the media confuse us with being down at their level rather than the kudos of being associated with a club at a level they can only have wet dreams about (other than their Nans)

Ha ha, look at you sheeee’ds, 2 points off the top of the EFL, on sky sports almost weekly over the coming month, superb stadium that’s the envy of many, all questioning the merits of signing an ex Barcelona player, as a quarter of your squad is away on international duty. 

pathetic - and I’m going to knock one out because someone manning the videprinter made a typo and put “Rovers” instead of “City”, because it makes me feel better about being a Naughty Word”

I'd be quite happy never to play them again.

We've moved on so much as a club both on and off the pitch. Our goals are set far higher nowadays. Why on earth would you want to play and watch anything on that 5hit tip of a pitch and in that circus tent.

In a sense, playing them again is a no win situation for us but a World Cup Final for them (and I mean, WORLD CUP) It is that big a deal for them and the few half witted scabs that still support them.

Yet, for a lot of our fans, especially the younger ones it means nothing such is the ever widening gap.

A lot of fans mention that rovers were dominant in that era but looking at stats we beat them more than they beat us in the 90's. From what i can see we had a spell of four seasons without beating them between 87 and 91. 

Were they finishing higher in the league tbetween 80's and 90's (other than 90 and 91) ?

Ha. I have a 2013 Rovers ball in my loft. Signed by all the players. One day I'll get around to passing it on to the sags so they can auction it for a good cause, else I'd sling it.

Maybe not dominant, but certainly a lot more competitive than what they’ve been in the last 20 years. In that 90’s era, we had a couple of drubbings from them that were particularly hard to take.

Skeletel man on Talk shite just now......asked by either Hawksbee or Jacobs about Bristol City being in the play off places......I thought he was going to choke. He did manage a few good words about us and the stadium before stating that Bristol needs a club in the Premier league as City were there for only one season before plummeting down to the 4th division. Gas logic turning 4 into 1 ?... and on national radio

Sadly @Rich that's how ALL of my jackets are worn these days.  Whilst a button or two at chest height are just about do-able for me, anything further South has the obstruction of a gut that shows years of investment in apple pickers and sangria harvesters!

They just can’t help themselves, he says that they (City) get over 15,000 (its actually over 20,000) and Rovers get under 10,000 (it’s actually under 8,000) so the gap is actually 12,000 on an average home game, not 5,000 as implied in order to give the impression that there’s not much in it

That's would be the only and i repeat only, positive from them in the same division as us; everyone could see how poor their support is compared to ours.

In all fairness he is actually correct on both counts.Twisted logic but unusually a Fewer being accurate for once.

Last time they actually averaged a more than 10K attendance was in 1976.

Over 15,000 🤣.

They're right to be fair - we get their entire home attendance over 15,000!
