Keith Walwyn - he was a fantastic player at the lower levels - 119 goals in 245 games for York. Tragically died at the age of 47...

Why a ‘confused’ reaction to this post @neil.templar@hotmail.com ??!! Seems a strange reaction! Confused about his goal scoring record? Or confused about his passing?!

Wally selling the Mem from under them and hot footing it back to the middle east is going to take some beating.  It surely has to happen 😀

No, it definitely won’t happen, because they’ve always told us that Mr Lansdown will lose interest in Bristol City and they’ve told us he will take his money and bugger off - it will happen because they said so ... surely they couldn’t know this without realising their very own billionaire owner will do it first? Surely? ....

If someone could set up a poll to find out what we think is the funniest laugh we've had at the Rovers expense that would be great.

May I nominate:

1) Mansfield playing last game of 2014 season in a kit borrowed from Rovers

2) The signing of Matty Taylor

3) Any other suggestion

4) Any other suggestion.

 

FWIW, I'd vote 2) all day long. It still makes me laugh!  

Oh, this one for me, all day long .... if you ever need a laugh ... 🤣😂😅😀 So much class at that club ...

April 26th 1986 - Bristol Roverzzzz 1 Chesterfield 1

Last ever game at Eastville

Attendance: 3,576

Yep, ‘loyal and true’ ladies and gentleman .... 😆🤓🕺🏻😂✌️🍷

Squeaky, zero class, embarrassing little turd.

He was such a perfect fit for the Gas.

Having a tramp in the squad and the witty OTIB one liners that followed always made me chortle.

Selling season tickets for the non existent Row M in the South West in the corner tented supermarket trolley stand takes some beating.

But the best bit is the to55ers who regularly phone in to Radio Bristol to give their view on a match they haven't been to & that they've only heard on the radio AND in their best dumb a55 Cletus accent " it sounded unbelievable on the radio Geoff, and it definitely wasn't a penalty"

Just going to show what an absolute stain on Bristol they really are....

Unfortunately, there are a lot more football fans in all of these postcodes. Many supporting Prem teams, we are as a collective, a poor supported footballing City considering th population of Bristol

Ive managed to get 2 friends in the last few years. (In our late 20s) one who supported Liverpool but never went to anfield now has a ST here and now loves City. 
The other a die hard Chelsea fan (Generation thing)  who sees City as his local side and also has a ST. 

These are the ones I would like to See in City kits and coming down to AG. Not too worried about the Gas as they are a long way off of us.

It seems increasingly likely that many clubs will not be able to survive the current crisis and - sadly for me-  Rovers would appear to be one of those at serious risk.

What will become of this thread if we do go?  You need to start thinking of your exit strategy, would it become the 'Cardiff dustbin thread' or will you wait to see if a 'phoenix' Rovers starts up and start hating them instead?

Personally. I'm beginning to see the upside of this scenario. I can continue disliking City and laughing to myself when they fail without having Rovers ******* it all up for me by, well just by being Rovers really,

Why do you think Rovers are at risk more than a number of other clubs?

One rare positive of all this pandemic would be rovers going bust,

All the evidence would suggest Rovers are in a bit of a financial mess.

Still don't see them going under, not if Wally is prepared to top up the furloughed staff out of his own pocket, that would suggest he is happy to dip his hand in his pocket.

There's no fixed set of supporters; people are always starting to go to football (under thirties generally) and ceasing to go (over sixties).

If I was a sixteen year old just starting I'd try both City and Rovers; and having seen both I struggle to see why anyone would pick Rovers.

My first experience of City was when my Dad took me as a kid. I literally had never seen anything like it: 23,000 people packed into the terraces and the roar of "Bristol" so loud you could feel it. 

Wow.

You aren't going to get that at Rovers so you won't go back.  City has been picking up 90% of the new supporters for thirty years.

The average active supporting life is about forty years.

If Rovers do not have some serious success very soon they are going to find their crowds plummeting as their supporters get old and stop going with few coming through to replace them.

The ground itself is a massive turn off; I know a Plymouth season ticket holder who goes with his mates to a couple of away games a season. I asked him if he was going to Rovers given that they're fairly local and it wasn't even on the list because the last time they went there the state of the ground was so poor that they said they would not go again.

I wouldn't like to see them go under, because of the current situation. 

I'd far rather they continued to implode and went bust organically. Not having a global pandemic to put it down to.

Never fear Miah, Rovers will never go out of existence. They may fail financially, but the true core of supporters will keep the club going. I can envisage the situation in a few years when Rovers are playing in the Bristol Suburban League and the Gas forum is full of stories of them having the best away support in the league; every other club loves them etc. Plus the excitement of the cup run being knocked out in the second round of the Gloucestershire Junior Cup by Brimsham Green Reserves

Assheads believing that they would be using a new ground entry system, similar to most grounds (including AG), where entrants simply swipe their season card, and entry is automatic. The sags perhaps arriving in the 20th, never mind 21st century ?

No, of course not.

It transpires that swiping the new card sets off a buzzer. Then, “some bloke”, who resides behind a wall, stamps on a foot pedal, thus allowing said asshead entry into the “stadium”.

They’d still find a way to blame Wycombe Wanderers ....

Surely some impressario can transform this gem of a recording into a blockbuster movie, a stage-play, musical or TV series.

Can anyone suggest a (suitably embarrassing) title?

 

They punch horses don't they?.....
