Bristol Rovers Dustbin Thread

I am hoping for Cotterill, he strikes me as a man who can get a simple message across to players on how he wants to play and what he expects from everyone. My main worry is that he will get an interview , realise the owners are full of shite, and think to himself '**** that'. I don't know about his personal situation, I suspect he would like a managers role again, but I don't think he would necessarily have to take this one, someone soon will surely offer him something.

I think SC is your best option. I just believe he’ll take the job, he lives locally and surely will be aware of a what a complete clown Wally is.

I’ve said it before, wouldn’t surprise me if Wally actually took over as manager

I’ve never heard of this guy but I really hope it’s true just for the name alone! Gary Wassock, Bristol Rovers manager.

Used to play for them about 20 years ago. Has managed Wycombe and Oxford.

 

He would also continue that weird link they seem to have with QPR when it comes to players and Managers, he played for them for years. Of course they recruited Darryl from non-league too, so maybe this is their thing now.

I personally can't see SC going there long term. Maybe on a rest of season contract similar to his Notts County deal. He will keep them up, I have no doubs about that, but demand a hefty pay and or bonus for doing so.

I guess Rovers fans will finally see the ambition of their owner now, or not, on whom they appoint....waddock,  and it's heading back towards non league!!

I could see that happening and them failing to cough up at the end of the season

Open letter to the board of Bristol Rovers Football Club
820 have signed. Let’s get Tom Metcalfe started this petition to Wael al qadi and 1 other
We the fans of Bristol Rovers Football club are writing this letter to you; the board to try and mend our broken relationship.
It is now nearly 12 months since we were told that the club was about to submit a planning application for our training ground to South Gloucestershire council and it is not acceptable that the fans only discovered that plans had been shelved due to cost nearly a year later in a damage limitation interview by Steve Hamer in the wake of the Barnet defeat nearly a year later. We now have a plot of land in Almondsbury sitting doing nothing. It's inconceivable that the owners appear to believe this doesn't warrant some kind of official statement underlining what they intend to do going forward to finally provide this club with fit-for-purpose training facilities.
The same is true for the stadium. Since the club pulled out of the UWE Stadium project, many feel that no adequate reason has ever been provided and are left bewildered that any deal could possibly be worse than an indefinite stay at the crumbling Memorial Stadium, with yet another tent thrown up haphazardly to improve spectator experience. We know many parents who are hesitant to bring their young children to the Mem because of the derelict conditions at our ground which puts us in serious danger of losing a generation of fans as the rest of the football world modernises around us. It is not unreasonable to expect updates on the owner's stated goal of redeveloping the Mem, unless of course the new tent is the extent of these plans.
Finally, whilst we understand that the owners can not be expected to come and and quash any and all rumours around the club, the strong and consistent rumours that the club is up for sale and there will be no more investment in the club until any takeover is completed are troubling and paired with the lack of progress in infrastructure or any meaningful communication from the board create a self-perpetuating atmosphere of unease around the club that we believe is beginning to have an effect on the pitch.
We are not writing to you to demand that you immediately progress on the training ground and stadium. The reasons there has not been progress may be complex and varied. What we are demanding is communication from the club on a regular basis on what is being worked on, what direction any future plans are going in and any delays that have come up.
We see this taking one or more of the following forms:
- A monthly fans forum where fans can ask questions directly to the board
- A monthly written statement from the board on the work it is doing
- Regular interviews on club channels on the work the board is doing
- Immediately putting out a statement if there is bad news to announce
We believe the above would stop the current cycle of radio silence and then bad news slipping out in BBC Radio interviews. This would also go some way to stopping wild rumours circling around the club and building trust between the board and the fans.
Bristol Rovers fans are used to having our backs against the wall and no one expects overnight success or massive unsustainable investment but we do demand is to be kept informed and whenever possible involved in the direction of a club many of us have supported for 50, 60 even 70 years of our lives. Let's work together to ensure there is a competitive, modern and sustainable Bristol Rovers football club for our children and grandchildren.
Yours sincerely
Gasheads everywhere

Where is this letter from Dopey, can't seem to find it...........................could do with a good laugh !

 
"Following sending some of your messages to DC i have this morning received this reply :-
 
Hi Marc,

Just want to say thanks personally for your support you have given me, Really appreciated your emails and you like many others are what makes Bristol Rovers fans in need of special care and a club I wanted to do so well for despite being a shite manager.

Last few days have been horrible and it’s going to take plenty of time to get over it but I wish you and the club nothing but success in the future. Woof woof!

Take care

Darrell &
🐕"

:laugh: nah mate build your bet match acca, Betfred mate

Hi Alex, seeing as you are in the bookie trade see if you can answer this query, a mate of mine had a bet in a Bet Fred shop on Saturday Morning, he put an £8 forecast intended on a dog race in the 11:59 (3 to beat 1) which came in, it transpired there was also an 11: 59 cartoon horse race, being as he didn’t write trap 3&1 or didn’t put the name of the meeting how would this be resolved? Just for your interest William Hill policy is that they pay out on the main meeting

You don’t put the name or meeting then it’s not our fault, a lot of races go off at the same time, so we aren’t mind readers, the operator should’ve looked at the bet before accepting it so equally as wrong, so both customer n member of staff were wrong 

gotta feel for those poor dogs now Dopey is free though
