You must be missing a digit Bert?

Not missing as such but better described as truncated. However I am assured this will not preclude me from assuming the role of Chairman when our takeover by Backpassage Partners is concluded in the New Year. With my vast experience of football leadership the hierarchy are certain I shall  fit the Bill but there is some doubt about Dean and Clive.

See the new Manager was “at it” already yesterday praising the blue hordes that made it to Fleetwood. He knows....... give the Saggies a bit of praise and you literally  have a free ride for 12 months.

344,000 seems a lot considering the population of Bristol. Are you sure that you haven't fallen into the same trap as some of your other blue friends Bert?

Has he said they are 'different class' yet?

Yep. I think the various Managers out there leave the phrase book on the desk (assume it’s an Ikea flat pack job) when they clear out. “Massive numbers”, “they deserve better” blah blah will all appear in due course.

So are we saying he's potentially a bit of a "Lady Garner"...?

MK Dons away for the Slags next, no doubt they'll beat the 5,000 we took on our last visit. 

They can already get the "everyone out New Years Eve" excuse in, so that will equal ticket sales down by 4000, therefore when you add #Gaslogic to it they have really taken more than us. Pretty simple really.

Already coming up with excuses for a possible low home crowd vs Coventry in the FA Cup.

Meanwhile Coventry fans just get on with it and sell nearly 2000 tickets in no time at all. 

Wonder what this Doughnut below would have to say about that and the 300 they took to Fleetwood yesterday? “We r da BeSt fans in Da Bristol un we r da one teem in brstol loyul n tru” probably.

I think you may have underestimated his grasp of the Queen`s English personally - I could almost understand that.

I've always thought they were a different class.

…..indeed I believe most of them were in special classes.

In fairness “making stuff up” is a bit harsh. I was going by when Rovers and Ipswich were last in the same division. I didn’t realise that the Gas had met Ipswich in a 1st round, midweek League Cup match since then. 


Either way, it was ridiculous for that dimwit to compare your Saturday attendance at Portman Road, a ground Rovers have barely visited in 30 years, with our trip to Hillsborough (a yearly event), lunchtime on a Sunday...also televised on Sky. But, like I say, the bloke is a whopper.

Definitely agree with that...

After no doubt having `shitheeeeead` screamed at him by the half wits in the away end all game.

New Year's day, large ground, easy to get to and plenty of tickets available. What's stopping you having a large away following?

The Morecambe & Wise Christmas special is being repeated again on TV. No contest.

I see that the best fans in bristol are already turning on their manager....shock. God help him, he probably has no experience dealing with their level of bitterness and delusion.

Just had a quick look at their forum, seems they are turning on their regularly unfit top scorer now as well.

Chances are, he was told he would be sold in Jan to help balance the books and the club have now worked out that the market for players who have only really performed under one manager, are frequently injured and us unlikely to be good enough for Championship football is more limited than they imagine.

Unhappy player or a (fairly) cheap punt by a lower half Championship side is probably the best they can hope for.

Will 500k keep the wolf from the door? Or will these rumoured consortiums start to think it might be cheaper to buy the Fewers from the administrators, given that even with a 10pt deduction, they are pretty safe this season.

Ah 😬. How may did the slags take  this weekend then?

No idea sorry, I’m awful at judging numbers from a photo...

 

Just seen it was 1300, not awful but only a quarter of what we took whilst in league one...

That's decent enough, don't get why we are trying to take the piss when it's more than we took to Charlton

2 reasons.

1) they had train travel available to them, we didn’t.

2) apparently they travel everywhere in humongous numbers, we know this because they tell everyone...constantly. You’d think, listening to their bullshit, that they’d easily beat the 5k+ we took to MK, especially as they are in the hunt for promotion. 
 

Still, it’s better than the 3-500 they usually take away so well done them.

I'm happy to laugh at the deluded idiots as much as the next person but I think taking 1200 to MK on a NYD isn't bad
