To me, teams they play against at home do seem quite likely to have players sent off - more regularly than many other clubs, including our own. Are there any stats to support this feeling?

Red cards against whilst playing at home in League One this season:

Portsmouth: 5

The Sags, Wycombe: 4

Gillingham, Peterborough: 3

Accrington, AFC Wimbledon, Fleetwood, Ipswich, Lincoln, Oxford, Rotherham: 2

Bolton, Burton, Shrewsbury, Southend: 1

Blackpool, Coventry, Doncaster, MK Dons, Rochdale, Sunderland, Tranmere: 0

OTIB should remember that they are not building their dream - just a scaled down version because they also had their plans thwarted against what would have been fantastic for them in Ashton Vale

Agreed, we can all look forward to "OUR" world class stadium being constructed to the very highest standards ( Not like the lego kit south of the river). the work will start very soon on phase one, the access road & car park !

You reckon? Don't know the stats but certainly seem to get more penalties than against 

This season Rovers have been given 6 penalties .. 8 other clubs in league one have been awarded the same, or more. And also so far this season Rovers’ opponents have been awarded 9 penalties when playing against the gas. So more pens have gone against them than for them.

Last season Rovers were awarded 7 penalties; compare that with Charlton who were awarded 15 in league one, Accrington 11 and Luton 10 - and 6 other clubs were awarded the same number of pens as the gas. Also last season, Rovers’ opponents were awarded a total of 7 pens - so awarded and conceded totals were the same.

In 2017/2018 Rovers were awarded 4 penalties - 13 other clubs in their division were awarded more than them. And in the same season, Rovers’ opponents were given 13 penalties - so they were awarded 9 less than they conceded ...

It really does pain me to say it, but this thing about them getting loads of pens and more pens than anyone else is just a convenient myth...they have actually had more pens awarded against them over recent times ...

Wonder how many of those were Blackpool fans?

Wouldn’t be surprised if the number of Sagheads who bothered to show up yesterday was around the 6k mark.

Remember in their L2 days when they used to say they’d fill the Mem every game if they were in League 1?

Full of shit fickle bunch.

Also worth remembering it's tickets sold, not turnstile clicks.

We have had a number of games at The Gate recently where attendance looked a bit light, but over 20,000 was reported.

Eh?! Not sure I understand that - are you saying the figures I’ve quoted are incorrect? I got them from here: 

https://www.transfermarkt.co.uk/league-one/topErhalteneElfmeter/wettbewerb/GB3

Apologies if they aren’t correct - what do you think the figures should be? I’ve shown ‘for and against’ for this season and the two previous seasons - what are the correct stats in your opinion then? I’m more than happy to be proved wrong on stats regarding gas penalties...

I have a dream

I have a dream that one day my descendants, the automatanns, will be gliding along the motorway in a hydrogen fueled driverless module when artificial intelligence will tell them to look northwards. Naturally they won’t be able to do so but an implanted virtual reality regulator will provide the sensation of gazing out towards a spectacular scene shimmering in the distance.

Crystal clear pools of distilled water with brightly coloured amoeba skimming gracefully across the surface.

Fields of rich dark crumbly earth from which all heavy metals and those nasty golden centipedes have been removed and sent to South Bristol

Business Parks full of equal opportunity employers with staff busily refreshing their Facebook and Instagram  pages as they strive to re-engineer Chinese made consumer goods.

Residential units built using timber from sustainable forests and Cotswold stone from South Korea. Homes not just fit for heroes but also for heroines, hermaphrodites, hemorrhoids and everyone in between.

Dwarfing it all a gigantic Sportograd rising unobtrusively skywards and constructed entirely from reconstituted paper cups. It’s crowning glory a smooth curved jagged edged “Football Reactor” dedicated to the philosopher Sir Alf Garner. At the epicentre  a glowing core of smiling happy faces with voices emitting a stirring sound which carries forth on a billowing stream of new clear wind.

” But it’s been no bed of roses,

No pleasure cruise,

The challenge of building a new football stadium,

 We always must lose.

Cause we are the Champignons my friends ... “

 

I have a dream.

Only reason could be they're selling the mem to pay the debt. Then with the millions and millions left over finance a brand spanking new stadium in st Phillips.  What else could the plan possibly be ? I mean since joining the blue few Wally has backed them to the hilt at every turn,  really nice bloke as well apparently.

You could be correct mate, I used https://www.transfermarkt.co.uk for the stats as a few people on here, such as @Davefevs and @JonDolman have said it’s a good source of info and stats - so apologies if the penalty stats on that site are unreliable ...

Can't get into that link mate but I can promise you that they haven't given away 9 penalties this season, they are also 5-1 better off when it comes to sending offs

I have no idea what the stats are and can't be arsed to look them up. However, I'm willing to bet anything you like, that over the years, we have probably had around about the same amount of penalties awarded to us, given against us and the same with red cards as any other team.

No doubt that some teams do get little runs of such things going in their favour, but as conspiracy theories go, it's just a little bit more likely than flat earthers view of the world and a little less likely that the current crop of world leaders are all in it together :)

But your little runs of such "such things' has lasted about 15 years, you've had strikers that constantly tumble in the box as if they've been shot dating back to the likes of Roberts and Haldane and your current striker is as bad.

You would say that 🙂

I'm going to suggest that our record in the time period you mention, which includes relegation out of the league, being knocked out of the cup by countless non league sides and never having played you in a league fixture, suggests that there is no perceivable bias toward our club by match officials.

If there is such a bias, then we are in even bigger trouble than I thought.

Okay, I'm going to make a further guess on the Fewers new stadium situation.

They ground share with FGR when they move, it will be billed as a partnership arrangement with the club 'committed' to moving back to Bristol as soon as a suitable site is found. Meanwhile, the Mem gets sold for housing and the club is sold on for a nominal amount with Wally keeping a few percent.

The stadium partnership arrangement will be Rovers paying FGR rent with no commercial benefit.

It's what they do.

You are, because match officials can't keep showing this obvious bias, people will start to ask questions 🙂

Were that to be the case, Rob presumably Dale Vince would contractually impose his vegan belief upon his tenants (I can't believe that he'll allow meat products to be prepared in his food outlets every other week)? Thus the 15ers will need to get used to tofu so I thought I'd  better check for them on the situation regarding product expiry dates. The good news was quickly found "I have used unopened tofu 60 days after expiration" therefore the fewers' present catering standards will need no change.

Until they eventually move their fleet of caravans in and steal the ground from under their noses.  Look out FGR.
