Bristol Rovers Dustbin Thread

Will the gas be hosting PSG, Monaco, Marseille & Bordeaux etc in future?

To combat the spread of coronavirus, the French have decided to have a maximum of just 5,000 attending any gatherings or sporting events.

Given the declining attendances at the Mem, Rovers will be the first to adopt this measure.

It would at least fulfil their oft-repeated claim that they would sell out every week.

Yesterday’s attendance of 6934 included 396 Shrews (and Sh’eds obvs) meaning that 6538 tickets were sold to home supporters (including those season ticket holders who stayed away).

if a 5k limit were to be put on football crowds their car park would be filled to bursting (even more than usual). They’d need to build bigger pavements.

Proper gas speak that.

What an idiot.

Given that they spell "proud"  as "prowed",  the correct spelling must be "Blackthrown"

All teams do

Attendance is actually just tickets sold. 
 

Not bodies through the turnstiles.

At least City fans are consistent, Johnson in/Johnson out at about 50/50?

Their Garner in/Garner out poll has swung from 80/20 in to 80/20 out in only a couple of weeks

All the ones who look at the table and think that's all that matters, and class it as some sort of great improvement.

I believe their accounts are due this month, be interesting to see if this represents a nail in their coffin or not.

They must be close to having unsecured money going in to the club, at which point Wally will either have to part with at-risk cash or walk away, either with or without a buyer lined up. Which would either mean new owners paying an absolute fortune for a third-world stadium, or administration.

Part of me won't be surprised if their accounts are delayed due to a takeover deal being worked on. But who knows. 

With attendances falling, renewal of season tickets likely to be down and their star striker not scoring, you wonder how they can trade their way to another season without financial support.

For all the grief they gave Higgs, losses were at a far more manageable level, and they actually paid fees for players back then.

Still, lovely bloke, nice watch and all that!

I would rather be in a worse position in the table and playing some good entertaining football, and then improve with experience.

We may as well just go and get Warnock as manager then, as he will be playing the same style as we are currently, and would be more successful at it. I still wouldn't want to watch it though even though we would be above 7th.

For the avoidance of any doubt, Rovers do not use percentages in their polls.

These are, in fact, the actual total number of fans they have (which is an all-time high for them).

They are collectively known as Horfield's Hideous Hundred.

So them celebrating their centenary wasn't in acknowledgment of their age, but their supporter recruitment scheme.

City Centre Sauna?! (Allegedly!)

 

I always thought the Topaz Massage Parlour on Stapleton Road had a better feel to it.

And their birch twigs were certified by the Forest Stewardship Council.

Nice to see 38% of existing methane snorting season ticket holder have stated, on slagchat that they won't be renewing. Admittedly, they've only had 58 votes.

Dropping like a stone. :)

Bristol Live (never let the truth or facts get in the way of a good story) states  "Jama had been part of a long list of famous Rovers fans"

Since when do three idiot Z-listers constitute " a long line of famous..." ?

Haven’t got a clue who this woman is?

I’ve always thought it’s particularly appropriate that their most famous fan is a convicted liar.

its what they do....

Is that the number of votes or the number of season tickets renewed?

To fair, we get similar knee jerk reactions on here. Just look at most matchday threads when we go one nil down!

That said, the last set of accounts showed a 12% drop in income.

And attendances have continued to fall since.

Wow three million a year for a lower league one club. We need to bring in some sort of wage cap like rugby do. The amount of excess money flying around can then by thrown back down the chain to grassroots which we are failing to see.
