Bristol Rovers Dustbin Thread

Listened to DC on the Twentystone phone-in driving home and thought it the most thinly veiled  'resignation speech' since Glumsden at Ipswich. "We work hard all week, prepare, then they go and do that...basic errors,....it's not acceptable....there were no positives...but I select the players and give them the game plan and if they play like that I'm to blame."

Short of ' Go on, sack me' sounded to me like he'd had enough.

Typical of him to slag off his players - remember they were all bog standard last season according to him - then stick in the bit about being to blame, which he clearly doesn't mean.

He's un sackable. They could not afford the compensation package, they're hoping someone comes to get him and pay them compensation, then they'll appoint Marcus Stewart on the same money and a short contract. The trouble is, with the reduced quality available to him, he's struggling to produce good enough performances to attract another club.

I actually think he isn’t a bad manager, he’s brought into all the Wally bullshit and the Blue Few have lapped up with his stupid comments.

He must regret the day he didn’t go for the Leeds job, his problem is every game / week his reputation is taking a hit.

Like you say the club can’t afford to sack him so he’s stuck there, and he’ll be taking them down this season

I see the gift have messed up with there sponsor. Brilliant. Tinpot at its finest 

Wow! So many gifts and only the first weekend of the season ...

"Many people noticed yesterday that the Mint Bet sponsor logo was covered up on our kit yesterday. Apparently due to EFL rules that you cannot have more than one betting company sponsor. "

":laugh:. You couldn't make it up. Actually, I hope someone made that up."

"Apparently club is in process of repaying back sponsorship to MintBet which is going to have a knock on effect to the remaining of DC’s transfer budget apparently 50k "

"Im sure it will cost more than that I'd imagine. I wouldn't be happy with a shirt thats got the wrong sponsor on it. Surely nobody would buy one now the mistake is out in the open too. Where does that leave the shirt manufacturing process and all the dead stock that will be left around?"

" I imagine a new sponsor if Found would just be ironed over the top of existing to minimise cost "

Surprised at that. Given the league is sponsored by Sky Bet.

And to think they mocked our hashtags.

Just hope we aren't filling either of of top two sports.

 

Over the years City have played 2,010 games at Division 3 level. They have "only" lost 614 in total H & A.

Clarke looks and talks like a man at the end of his rope, a man who has finally realised that the man with the nice watch and his family are full of shit and the people brought in as mouthpieces to try to spin their bullshit are full of shit as well.

The sale of Harrison might see them through this season but I would be amazed if Clarke is still there at the end of this season, he looks like he is heading for a breakdown.

Was browsing the gas forum for giggles and saw the ‘quid a kid’ topic, didn’t read it but assume it’s a thread about the new striker they are signing

To be fair, that's the only way they can get anyone to watch them. How else can they be expected to fill all those empty tents?

And another thing. When was the last time Wally paid as much as a quid for a player?

Just out of interest, how many Season Tickets have they sold? I wouldn’t normally care but I keep getting told by Gasheads about how much more loyal they are than City fans and how they’d watch Rovers from the pavement if they had to....

I haven’t seen any mention of their ST sales anywhere?

Also, are they still getting taken over by James Dyson or did that turn out to be a right load of old bollocks?

Asking for a mate.
