Bristol Rovers Dustbin Thread

Do you really think a shifty four toed camel trading land grabber cares one iota about the history of the Mem. :disapointed2se:

No I don't. You are correct.

They don't give a jot about the historic significance or heritage meaning of the site.

I am extremely surprised that there isn't some sort of protection order on the land and gates to keep it as a permanent memorial. The current owners should not be able to profit on the fallen by turning their memorial into a housing estate.

Now that would be ironic following our much publicised town village green problems.

Yup it appears that was the intentions a long time ago,run the club into the ground (did they really ever want the uwe deal) and invest in land for future profit,rovers will go to the wall with this bloke calling the shots, why the gas cant see this is beyond me, that goes for the local press as well, utter apathy. 

I’ve said that from the day they took over,

could see it a mile off

A conversation I was party too, involving  two owners of a successful business at the fruit market site. Was that an offer of 20 million was made by rovers some months ago ( as furious custard posted  some weeks ago) with all sorts of conditions imposed as part of the deal     The owners of the site have also turned down an offer of 40 million from a major house builder.

The main thing to consider is that the fruit market site , is not a empty or derelict site ,business are still trading from there .If any bid was successful, then the owners would need to find an alternative site ,obtain planning and have the site built . So the day after they vacate the fruit market site ,they can move in and start trading.This would take minimum of three years to complete.

As a man once said these things take time, he forgot to mention money ? .Both of which BRFC do not have. ,why their fans are not calling,  Wael out on this I don't understand, maybe they don't want to know ??

 

I was going to  call Wally an asset stripper,then I thought ‘what assets’🤦‍♂️

Your racism is appalling.  And does our entire club a disservice. With the recent increased focus on racism in football, I hope you stay away from Ashton Gate and don't drag us all down to your disgusting level.

Not entirely sure jumping down his throat publicly was the best way to deal with that?

Maybe pointing out the racist remark (made by a non native English speaker) and letting him see the error of his ways would be more positive?

There was some sort of  legal document to say the whole site was the war memorial and that it can’t be built upon but Someone conveniently lost it!

You're welcome, Bristol does seem to be a doom and gloom place at the moment.

Still, at least I'm working in Shrewsbury today, so there should be a few smiling faces :)

I’m working in Barcelona Miah and they’ve never heard of you. They haven’t heard of us either to be fair but that’s not relevant.

By the way, the Nou camp is a dump! Seriously, it’s falling apart.

I can believe they have never heard of Rovers, but surely they've heard of me!

Anyway, take a trip up the road to Sabadell where they have definitely heard of The Gas . #dafamousquarters :)

That’s the ground being sold and them becoming homeless again then

Wally wants 100% of the club, so he can sell without some well meaning fan group having an opinion. And possibly so that he can keep a few %, for himself so he can pretend to an owner and impress his mates back at home.

You can imagine the scenario now, as he speaks to potential new buyers...

We have 92%, the supporters club have 8%, so why not let me keep 10% and you buy 82%, but pay off all the debts and then invest in new players and a stadium and I'll put nothing else in.

*sounds of doors closing and engines starting*

I think Miah you're getting confused. When someone from Barcelona says 'Meh' they mean meh (a teenager expression which is marginally better than a grunt or a shrug of the shoulders) and not Miah!

Enjoy Shrewsbury but don't grin too much!

Where is the fella on this forum upsetting himself last year (was it?) when we "only" took whatever we took to West Brom midweek, insisting Rovers would take more blah blah blah? Where are you????!!!!

Rovers have been there a couple of times now, St. Andrews, Brum in a cup replay, and Cov in LeagueNowhere, and as we told upset bloke on the West Brom thread, the numbers tend to drop off after a few visits in a shortish time.

Same for us, same for them. Same for most clubs, other than the biggest. Context is important. 

Minus context, we can say: we took 1300 further away last night, they took 300. Therefore, we are MASSIVE. 

Actually, that's what they would be doing, so why don't we?

City: 1300,

Rovers: 300.

Conclusion: We are MASSIVE, they are tinpot.

and another one;

Ian Holtby Banned

One thing that emerged last night from the travelling few, Ian Holtby has been banned from watching Rovers. His crime, trying to buy tickets from the club for home and away games. Starnes and Gorringe sent a letter around to his house delivered in person by the stadium manager banning him indefinitely.
Must be the banning season, who next.

Lacky: Err, you banned him, Boss.

You can tell these naive belters spend their spare time in the pub surrounded by Sagheads, listening to everything they say and believing everything they say.

Im sure these same City fans saying how embarrassing it was that we ‘only’ took 1800 to West Brom last season for a Tuesday evening, SKY televised match will be along in a minute to admit they were wrong to say the Gas would take more.

I won’t hold my breath though.

The gas should be very worried about these bans, the owners are trying to hide something

The ban of the supporters director should have them all reaching for the panic button.

Don't imagine they will, but it should do.

Isn't he their elected voice after they pumped trillions in to the club in exchange for very few shares? If that voice is stifled/removed then how will they have any idea if their money is being used correctly or if they aren't about to have the (magic) carpet pulled from under them.

They must be fearing the worse, especially with their one saleable player apparently rarely fit.

This could make for some golden viewing from our side.

Another kick in the balls for the special relationship between Bristol Rovers and UWE:

https://info.uwe.ac.uk/news/UWENews/news.aspx?id=4001

Quote

UWE Bristol Vice-Chancellor, Professor Steve West said: “It's fantastic to start 2020 with the announcement of our new and exciting partnership with Bristol Sport, an organisation we are very proud to have worked with for several years. Our core purpose is about transforming futures and inspiring people, which are values that also align with the Bristol Sport vision and the community engagement that both our organisations take great pride in.

I added the bold text for emphasis 😁

Similarly I can't help thinking that when 23,078 turned up to watch Bristol Bears play Wasps that there must be someone at the Memorial Ground who regrets stealing their ground and evicting the rugby club. Look who has the second highest overall attendance figures in English rugby....

"These things take time" unless you're doing your best to destroy relationships with the non-football community then it's amazing what can be achieved in just a few years.

Sometimes they just can't help punching a gift horse in the mouth.

It all makes sense now - Sir Steve was the instigator of the UWE falling through......
