Bristol Rovers Dustbin Thread

Surely it is the same as 82 isn't it? When the Council were going to help us the Sags wanted the equivalent given to them, therefore the same must apply here.......

If I heard it correctly, the woman asking the questions even asked if the Council would give them land to build on to help them, and he said they would have to ask for it first before anything would be done!!!

Personally I cannot see the Council giving away any land whilst there are people without homes in the area, and that same land can be sold to developers - why would they lose money themselves where the funding would help out the City itself???

Council owned stadium rented by Rovers, potentially. 

Similar to UWE, now that Wally realises he threw away the best deal he can get.

I see on the Bristol Live website that our Mayor, Marvin Rees says that the council will do all they can to help the gash find a new home, possibly at the fruit market site. 

I hope his feelings are shared equally towards Bristol City and all other clubs and sporting institutions. 

We and other bodies seem to be able to support ourselves and improve where we can. So should the gash by their own means. This "poor old Rovers" bollocks does my swede in! 

Should be legal challenges and the Ombudsman being brought in. That is no way to spend public money particularly after Rees who is a gashead, finally scuppered the Arena.

Yes I worked that out now. This our league by comparison by the way.

We have only had 7 home games compared to the Rovers 9, we have also had more TV coverage of our games. Their total gates over 9 games amount to just over 66k, two more games at our average will take us to over 195k. The Forest game is already looking to be well in excess of 22k on it's own so we could be looking at over 200k after 9 games. Mind the Gap is not a big enough insult anymore.

Let's be fair and look at %Full figures. We are, on average, filling 81.2% of our seats...the Gas are on 59.9% of their seats...sorry 59.9% of their allocated standing positions.

Sorry to say but you are wrong  it's  only the first two ko rounds (pus the group stages) which remain regionalised before an open draw from the quarter-finals onwards

Thanks for that, but its certainly news to  me.

Edit. Just looked at the format on Wiki and it doesnt make it clear, although it seems to imply that it is regionalized all the way through including a North South final.  Miah help please.

Fair play. 
I like the commitment that your lot show you boycotting matches. 
You take it so seriously that most of you even rehearse it at league games..! 

Yet a couple of them have mentioned lately about how they are looking forward to some clubs with big followings attending Chernobyl so their attendances look good 😂

Seriously though Miah, are you telling me that you wouldnt go to Wembley if you got there , against say, Sunderland?

I am yes. Although, I did go to the Sunderland semi final last year. Bit of a long story, but it was work related and difficult for me not to go.

Genuine question,  where have you all gone ( talking league attendances now )

The manager isn't popular, which I find a bit odd. We looked pretty much doomed under Clarke but Coughlan got us out of it with plenty to spare and this season, despite seemingly not getting much help from upstairs, we find ourselves near the play offs. Unsurprisingly many are pissed off with the lack of progress off the pitch and I also think (though I have no figures to back this up) that we have an ageing fan base who just aren't as enthusiastic as they once were.

What sort of job insists that you have to go and watch a Bristol Rovers match..?! 
They (rightly) outlaw human trafficking and then allow this kind of abuse..?! 
With those kind of duties, suddenly claiming Jobseeker’s Allowance looks like a tempting career move.

Style of play.  He's grinding out the results with the available players as Russell Osman did for us in the early 90s.

Also you have lots of recent fans who would have started going during the success and endless wins of two back to back promotion seasons and find the more common football reality of a mid table season less exciting than they were anticipating.

And wasn’t / isn’t given the credit he deserves for it.

Swindon fan here nobody our end had any interest in the game last night and that included the manager hence why some youth players were included. As above comments have said the competion is a complete waste of time and games are treated as friendliest so it could never be deemed as a derby match 

Also saving their money for Salford tomorrow with over 1300 tickets sold and much more appealing than a meaningless game against the Gas

Absolutely agree! In our darkest hour those sags complained at the council wanting to help us out and squealed and sulked until the offer of help for City was withdrawn.... then the club with ‘da massive away following’ tried to steal Ashton Gate from us - they’ve got the morals of an alley cat, so, childish or not, if the council offers to help them we must complain and demand similar treatment - there was a precedent set in 1982, which I’ll never forget - similar treatment for both clubs was what they demanded back then (until we got nothing when we were most in need of help) so it must apply today .... there’s a principle and a precedent

This.

Never forgive, never forget.

Dunno mate but don't be surprised if he doesn't get in again.

The problem isis that he has a loyal following in an election in what will be a low turn out in next May's election, never missed voting in an election in my life and have always put my X loyally in the Labour box but after he stitched up South Bristol by shifting the arena to S. Glos I cannot vote for this man.

I find it an original, if bizarre , idea . I wonder who they stole it from .

 

It is bizarre; it looks like the marketing would go something like "Have you ever wondered what your partner would look like as a multiple amputee?"

I might be wrong here but I think it’s a business venture by one of their players, Rodman perhaps?

If it is, then he really should seek better advice before making big decisions. 
Apparently his last one was to become a professional footballer and look where that’s landed him..!

The business was started by one of Rodman's brothers.  There are several websites, offering various personalised items for humans and dogs (cue the DC jokes!), some of them are actually quite good if you're looking for something a bit different for a present.

I definitely want one of these, brilliant what a great idea, fair play to the Gas for this...👍 

Can I have an Ian Holloway one please? 

I'm getting a bit long in the tooth for this kind of thing, it's been ages since I've had a good kick-about... 

So 

Bring it on for Christmas ! 😂 … What could be better for a Boxing Day work out than burning off a few excess calories by kicking the shite out of a Hollowhead Snugzy all around the house and up the garden path?
