Bristol Rovers Dustbin Thread

Actually Ska, you might be giving Rovers an idea. Miah, if you're reading this, please tell whoever needs to know that Mansfield in the 70s (cant be sure of exact date) needed a new main stand. They bought an existing one from a racecourse that was closing down. Oh the puns if Rovers did likewise or bought a stand or two fron FGR.

Possible idea for.a tv show? Grounds Under the Hammer, hosted by Dion Dublin of course, I can just see Wael at the back of the room, behind a pillar (as that’s his normal view), bidding against a mysterious bidder who is on the other end of a phone who only seems interested in pushing the price up. 
Dion then meets him at the ground with his dad behind him, where he states his ambitious plans, but is somewhat vague on the timescale.

The follow up programme where nothing has happened would appear on the Really channel in about 2030, and consist of Wael blaming Stroud District Council and his own family for the lack of progress.

and when asked why nothing has happened in the intervening years the answer would be 'these things take time'. (I would argue though the programme should be called 'Homes Under The Tarpaulin'

….given this weeks fine,  'Homophobes' rather than Homes Under The Tarpaulin' ? 

(strange really, as they spend so much time 'camping')

Looks like Ben Garner is going to be manager there.

Really surprised by this because, trying to be as unbiased as possible, I think it’s actually a very good appointment by the sags. Very inexperienced but he’s rated really highly by a lot of top managers. Think it’s a much better appointment than a Nathan Jones or a Hollowhead would’ve been. In terms of realism for the sags, I think this is genuinely the best appointment they could’ve made.

I’d never heard of him, but that’s not saying much. After having a quick Google (that’s not a euphemism for something unmentionable on the forum) he seems to have some decent coaching experience. If he joins Rovers, the test will be can he convert this into management

Has he seen their training facilities yet?  Turned down Bradford City last year.

Spent a lot of time working with Pulis, so a real long ball merchant I suspect.

The Memorial ground is a .... Blott on the Landscape ( for our younger readers, this show is 35 years old)

And still as funny now as it was then. it`s a shame they never adapted more Tom Sharpe books, they are truly hilarious. I think they`ve only done Blott, Wilt and Porterhouse Blue.

I actually think this is one of the lowest ebbs in my lifetime as a Rovers fan. The fact that Mansfield, 18th in League Two have managed to  poach a manager who has-within one calendar year and on a very limited budget- from relegation certs to 4th in the table (we could even go second today) should confirm to every Rovers fan that the current board have absolutely no interest other than their own financial one in the club. It should also be remembered that the manager was employed on the cheap, I didn't even realise he was at the club until his appointment!

Against all the odds, Coughlan has done a great job, probably too good for the owners who have now been exposed for what they are. Mind you, there are a few who have now turned on our former manager for the way he left (personally I think once he was refused permission to talk to Mansfield, he engineered a situation which forced the boards hand) Those who now  blame Coughlan, remind me of people who blame those on benefits and immigrants  for all of societies ills rather than looking upward to those who created the conditions in the first place.

Anyway, the point I am eventually trying to get to, is that many people on here have said 'City fans wouldn't take this' and my answer to that is, yes you would, all football fans do.

Sure there may be a few banners and shouts of 'Sack the board', but there are very, very few occasions this has any effect and even when it has worked (Blackpool for example) it takes years and the damage has already been done.

There is very little appetite for people to get involved with anything let alone football as long as they are doing reasonably okay.  I saw nothing but scorn thrown at Labours plans to change how football clubs were owned ,bizarrely in my social circle by a few people who go to games in Germany because they love watching games over there, but also in the wider general media.

The Premier League certainly changed football and there are many, many of those changes that have improved it but it has been at a cost to some and while forums are full of fans crying crocodile tears over the likes of Bury, most of them couldn't give a flying **** as long as their team are okay. City fans have very little to moan about, but if Lansdown's interest did ever wane, any anti board shouts would soon disappear as a couple of wins came along. Tis the way of the world :)
