We need to come up with a new phrase for them, this is now beyond tinpot. How about plastic bag or cardboard box maybe?

They’d be “coming for us”, if it was still 1992..!

I’ve lived in Downend 39 years, still do, you see no more Rovers than City generally

They are probably still out celebrating our defeat to Sheffield United.

It is very hard to find fault with them when their commitment to their corporate identity and branding is so consistent across everything they do ...

‘Da Famous quarterz’ anyone would think they invented the f’ing jester suits that they trot out to every week. Can’t complain though every club is jealous of their ‘unique’ shirts :facepalm:

the ones made from boiler suit offcuts from monsoon workwear in Clevedon ??

Well - this is interesting if true...

Comment from a Mod  (Peter Parker) on Gaschat - it would seem tipping point has been reached, with debts exceeding assets....

Pretty sure they are offsetting all their expenditure against the Mem value (which before some smart arse points it out I know they own it, I know), you do have to wonder what happens once the expenditure exceeds the value. Do they carry on spending well beyond our annual income or look for an escape route?

Is this season just one massive final push for promotion, a bit like Villa have just tried, or is their some sound business plan to eventually trying to break even on an annual basis, as I can't see selling a few extra pints and replica shirts is the answer.
 




Well they have already increased the credit facility beyond any secured funds

Did he just compare them to villa? 

The same aston villa who get 30k fans every week, have players who they've bought for over 10 mill littered in their team, have a midfielder who is wanted by spurs for 30 mill plus, have just released the ex England captain and champions league winner John Terry... 

The delusion haha

Yeah, and...?! 

Have you not seen the influx of free transfer activity..?!

I wonder what the average cost of their first team squad has been..? Seriously, can it actually work out at much more than about £50-70k average..?! 

And their new 341 capacity tent is based on the design of the Holte End you know..!

I find it amazing that you have 2 or 3 people on that site warning of finacial problems, the same problems most people outside the club can see that there is something wrong, no UWE, no Training Ground, low cost redevelopment of the Mem and of course "it takes time".
Yet all they get is shouted down by everyone else even accused of being "Teds". Do none of them actually stop and think maybe there is some truth in their warnings and actually do some research themselves.
Talk about a fanbase with their heads in the sand.
 
I think we should have a new name for them now, "the Ostriches"

"A massive push for promotion"???

Who have they got in and what have they spent? They are doing up a bar and.......got a 340 seater tent in. Yet want to be compared to Villa whos promotion push spending was probably around £50+ million. Yep, I can see the similarities.

Add to that the budget basement recruitment and it is a bit of a shambles over there.

Nothing wrong with recruiting cheap and then selling players on for a fortune, but they seem to be buying cheap and then hoping their manager can turn them in to a player who can get by in League One. 

They got money for Snake and Bodin, but no sign that this gives them a competitive budget.

And still they refuse to organise themselves in to a force that can question the owners.

Not sure we are in any position to take the piss when it comes to club shops!!

Probably the only thing which really let's down our redevelopment of Ashton gate! 

Yes we can, its in a porta cabin and now will be in a broom cupboard, our shop is still about a million times better

If you listen to the deluded fewers where I live they are “As big as City”, “One of the biggest clubs in League One”, In fact they are “Too big for League One”, their fan base is “Huge”, but some have just become a bit disillusioned, have lost interest a bit and, “Don’t bother to go down anymore”, but they still “Hate the ******* shit”. Their away support is one of the “Best in the land” and they believe that they are the “envy of a lot of other clubs”, all of which “Hate the shit” and have a “Soft spot for Rovers” as Rovers are a “Proper club”, unlike the “Franchise Shit”. Dean Windass is still their biggest legend. It used to be Ricky Lambert, but he went to Southampton and didn’t mention the Rovers as being one of his former clubs that helped his career to get him recognised to play for England. Didn’t stop them masturbating over him when he played and scored for England, but it severely dampened his legend status. FTG FTS!

A good shrink could make a career out of those muppets, It think it may be a variation on short man syndrome.

That's true, one of their main strikers has just been linked with a 70k move to the mighty Salford City as well, God they are massive

At least Salford City feel able to pay transfer fees....unlike the rich ones (rich with humour for us, at least)
