Aren’t they, us and 90 odd% of League clubs, loss making companies..? 

Yes mate but that particular loss making company is bankrolled by Bristol ratepayers the majority of which would prefer that sponsorship to go elsewhere. 

I think something should be done about this and questions asked of the Mayor.

Owned by the Council aren't they? How does that work then, bearing in mind that most ratepayers who give a shit about local football do not follow those arseholes.

Can we expect similar sponsorship ? 

We've certainly had sponsorship from them in the past. They ran a promotion last season for City fans to win a "big day out" and do work with the Bristol Sport Foundation.

I completely agree! My point was more that we weren’t in a position to mock Rovers as a loss making business. That little issue is true of virtually every club. 

No way should a tax payer funded company, that’s losing money, be able to splash out on vain sponsorships. 

I mean, I’d be surprised if their new tent even had an electric hook up anyway..!

I've just done something..........I've switched suppliers ! they had the cheek to inform me yesterday that my tariff was increasing, so I've sent an e-mail saying I'm changing as you are sponsoring something that is an anathema to me and you've just lost a customer !

How can a "stand" be built in 3 days?

The new South West Stand, is due to be built on the 16th, 17th & 18th August and in use for supporters for the match with Portsmouth on 21st August.

The new Bristol Energy Family Stand due to be built on the 3rd,4th & 5th September and will be in use for supporters for the match with Plymouth on September 8th.

Its a stand Jim, but not as we know it...

There's gAssholes on the starboard bow, starboard bow......

And in 1982 the council was going to make a payment to Bristol City to help us out in our hour of dire need - until the sags whined that they should also get a payment, so it was shelved ....now they are getting council funding??!!! I await our whining complaint...

About to join you, this is a ridiculous marketing strategy.

Can we please get back on topic.

 

OK fair enough pal. This Saturday is their first home game of a new season when optimism is rife. I reckon less than 9,000 will be at the Mem to cheer on Rovers.

On Coral online. I see that the gypos relegation odds are now down to 4-1.

That's a significant drop after just one game from 13-2.

Was going to have a flutter but not so tempted now.

 

They are being outbid for players-by flyde ? 

I think they are in awe full trouble simply to stay afloat

I think they will just be mid table again, if they dont sign a striker today they are in trouble though, they had 18 shots against peterborough's 6.. serious trouble if they dont get in a striker i agree!

BBC Radio Shropshire report that Shrewsbury Town striker Stefan Payne has signed for Bristol Rovers for an undisclosed fee.

No idea if he is any good.

They’ve signed a striker!!  Unbelievable!  He sounds great as well, 64 goals in 251 games (1 in 4) or if you remove the 2 seasons where he played non league for Dover scoring 40 in 98, he’s actually scored 24 in 153 games or 1 in 6 as I like to call it, amazing!

Wow!  I put "Journeyman" into Wikipedia and got this!
