Little's been poor all night, he's about the only Rovers player who doesn't look interested.

On the face of it that is remarkably close, would be good to know if we had more in the way of long distance journeys than them though I.e. Sunderland, Boro, Hull etc

Four hundred difference is quite large considering rovers were off the back of a near miss to top six following consecutive promotions.

I see that a Tory MP has "crossed the floor" to become a Lib Dem

I know that Matty Taylor's transfer got their knickers in a twist, but do you know of a fan who has "crossed the floor" from blue to red in Bristol?

When I was growing up, around 16 or 17 the house next to mine was occupied by 3 boys around the same age. 2 were utter ***** but the other one I grew quite close to and we became good mates. Years later he got married, and I met his father in law. Who actually believe it or not supports BOTH City & Rovers. I couldn't believe my ears, and my recall of the situation is rusty and I can't remember his reasoning. But I do remember he told me he had a season ticket for both clubs, and would attend each game individually as long as there wasn't a City game or a Rovers game at the same time, if this happened he would just do one and then another. So a City game when both were on, and then a Rovers game, but if only one club was playing he'd go watch that!

 

I suppose you could also count myself, as I believe I went to a few games at Ashton Gate when I was 4 or 5 with my late City-supporting step dad, but my dad (bless his heart) had had a rough childhood and so didn't know how to bond with me, and so he asked if he could take me to Eastville because the only thing that he thought would help us bond was going to watch Rovers, and so around 6 or so I suppose I did switch sides!

My late step dad was a wonderful man, when my dad saw himself unexpectedly out of the job he realised he couldn't fund buying both him and me a season ticket, and so my step dad offered to and paid for them. Yes, you heard that right! A City supporter paid for 2 Rovers supporters to have season tickets, was such a wonderful man! Not someone who switched though no.

When you’ve previously won the trophy with a much bigger club it must be difficult to find the motivation. #agentlitts

The other way there was that mysterious disabled bloke who could make himself invisible to CCTV that we gave a good kicking to who subsequently started following them*

A neighbour and older friend of mine went by the name of Blackjack - some may remember him ?

He was a prominent Rovers supporter for some years but, and I never knew why as I lost contact over the years, he later became a city supporter.

He'd be lost with todays sanitised "football experience."

Gas Logic=: The size of a club is decided by the ratio between their home and away fans. As their home crowds are pitiful but their away crowds are average that makes them massive.

 

Makes them far bigger than Man U then.

Former Rovers fanzine editor now an AFC Wimbledon supporter, got disillusioned during the Higgs era. Would’ve thought they’d come sprinting back now they are such a well-run outfit under Wael...

Was this the same Blackjack form Hartcliffe/Withywood area? (can't remember which exactly) who used to frequent the East End every home game in the late 60s/early 70s.  I knew that one well until I left the area for a short while due to work during the 70s.  I never knew that one as a gashead!!!

It’s not remarkably close, especially as they claim to travel everywhere in much larger numbers than us and our away support is supposedly ‘shit’.

This guy is confused..........

"There are many causes, much more important that Rovers, and if I was to invest in Football it would be in a new ground for Frome, one that would last them a good 20 odd years and one where they had, a café, restaurant, bar and whatever so that they could survive. I think you can make a huge difference to a small club rather than watch a big club piss it against the wall"

it looks like he thinks they are a big club?

It also looks like he thinks they've got a wall!
