As you will be aware, the United Kingdom voted to leave the European Union in yesterday's referendum.

The ramifications of this decision are going to be significant and will impact, both positively and negatively, on every single industry in the UK, including football!  

At this stage it is too early to draw any specific conclusions about what it will mean for Clubs such as Bristol Rovers FC and the competitions we enter, other than the withdrawal process is unlikely to be very quick. 

Once the UK invokes Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty, it will begin a two-year process of negotiating to leave, although it could take even longer. 

We will endeavour to keep all our supporters informed, on a periodic basis, of the consequences for football and an exit from the EU.

I simply cannot believe that. I love it so much. Why oh why? Who thought it was a good idea?

I honestly think this is as good a gift as the bloke who'd rather have his dog be put down.

Woohoo. Right now even the planned car park must be at risk. The good news is that Millets has a sale on so I can confirm that we will perform a major upgrade to stands at the Memorial Ground. We've may even buy a canopy or two and some garden furniture.

As do I 

sensible gas heads are always welcome here, we aren't petty children like those on your forum,

i said when the take over happened that this is a land grab by Hamer. I still believe this to be the case, 

 I generally think a stealth asset stripping will take place in around 6 months time, this is mainly because of Brexit which means land values have dropped and the property market currently in flux, which will explain the frankly bizarre statement from rovers on the day of the Brexit vote

 

 

@Monkeh your incredibly closer than you realise...

@bert tann I've said many times on here before, genuinely from a football fan to another...start asking serious questions about the ownership and the intentions.

I would rather have two crappy tent stands because people want to watch Rovers than have open spaces where they stand because we've become a sh** Conference side that manages a 3000 crowd on a good day.

The future is looking good for our club, I reckon the new stadium is going to happen, along with the training ground and facilities. Just imagine how brilliant it will feel sitting in the new stadium and comparing it with the Mem.

Imagine the bile and spiteful, jealous hatred emanating from the open sewer sh**-house that it Ashton Gate.

Can't wait. It will be so sweet

Can't wait?! Well seeing as there has been zero announcement about whether their move out of Bristol is still even happening, let alone a start date, he'd better learn how to wait.

Sweet.....

I've always said the sags are a dense lot but for them to confuse mocking with jealousy is taking the biscuit, even for them. 

That's what I just can't understand. What exactly are we supposed to be jealous of? 

About the only thing they had over us was the quality of pie on offer and they don't even have that now. :D

To be fair I've always said the best thing about that lot is the fact they can still stand on a terrace and watch football.

I wouldn't mind being able to do that, apart from that there is nothing about that club that I would even think about swapping with them.

I can stand when watching my son's school team play football but I wouldn't consider them a serious rival to Bristol City (well maybe they would have been in the Pulis days ;) ).

Yeah some of them dont understand the origin of this thread we definately are not jealous.

We rarely spoke about rovers until we went down and that was because the gas were loving it on social media and having relegation parties and announcing our defeats seperately on their tannoy, always singing about us etc etc. For them to turn around and say we are obsessed is hilarious! Even when they got promoted instead of enjoying their own promotion they make it all about us.....they are coming for us dont you know.....

We decided to put a thread about them on here constantly mocking them as pay back. They themselves come on here and read it everyday and take the bait. Its a job well done boys and long may this thread continue!

Gonna be a struggle for the 2015ers to realise that reality bites and that sadly (for them) Jack All has changed other than (admittedly good for them) Wonga loan cleared but my life a dodgy BR in the seats, new tent and a couple of new portaloos. Sweet Jesus. Reality of the situation of the Zillionare Al Quadi family are actually worth a couple of beans more of a scrape of my kacks worth of what they are willing to invest makes me think meltdown and dissapointment are days away when in September DC is days away from the biannual Gas payoff!

Why are they still playing in a training kit?

Come on, be realistic - how can you expect them to find the time to build a new shed, erect a new canopy, put new seats with letters that don't make sense in AND sort out the new kit?

Also, I think you forget that they were a non-league team a couple of years' back and this sort of situation with the kit is perfectly normal at that level. In fact don't be surprised if they play in skins in their next game....

They would claim that they're a "family club", but given the frequency of violence at their games it does have a hollow ring to it.

The nub of it seems to be that they are a smaller and less successful club which means that they are liked more by fans of other clubs.

And this is true as smaller clubs are more popular with other fans: for example do you prefer Man Utd or Carlisle?

The logical conclusion to this, if being "liked" is so important to them, is to go back to being non-league.  If they were doing a Torquay and flirting with the Conference South then they would be very popular. You might even get a few City fans watching them as the rivalry would be non-existent at that point.

But by signing a one year contract shows how committed he is to the club. Come on keep up #gaslogic!

haha,

oh and the kit, I heard they can't afford it at the moment,

Usually the smaller team is more liked, but I'm not sure that's true with the 15ers. They seem to think so, but fans of other clubs that have had to play them seem to dislike them.

Apparently the additional costs are due to them insisting on having `#comingforyou#ticktock` across the shoulders.

Brexit = Bristol Rovers exit

Brunel Professional Risks Stand? Ironic corporate faux pas!.

That flimsy gazebo will collapse as soon as its hit by a wayward shot.

Based on their decision to associate their business with this joke of a structure, Brunel Professional Risks are unlikely to attract any new clients and will probably lose existing clients.

I think it was worth flagging up as Brexit may well affect Rovers' chances in the Champions' League in three seasons' time.
