Bristol Rovers Dustbin Thread


Recommended Posts

Their bootleg dustbin thread accumulated 18 pages since the season resumed (understandable, we've been gutter). 

Since we've been linked with Hughton etc? 0 posts! Not even acknowledging it.

At least when they do something right we say argh, fair enough. They've stuck their heads in the sand as always.

There isn’t one player in our squad they wouldn’t take in a heartbeat , apart from the fact they’re thick support base would be up in arms about taking a ‘Ted’ despite the fact the player would improve their squad. Morrell , Walsh, Moore would all be in their first team and improve it.

The managers being linked with our vacancy they can only dream of.

Considering one of our youngsters was player of the year at the Champions of their division yet couldn't get into our SQUAD and another of our youngsters plays international football at the time speaks volumes IMHO.

A dustbin thread? Really? Can't they come up with at least one original thought. Do they have to steal everything.

I suppose it will have such hoots as;

1) Its not a proper stadium without terraces and tents (a few garden sheds and a cricket pavillion)

2) When was the last time you played Rochdale eh eh?

3) It doesn't have Babestation on tap.

Obsessive behaviour.

 

You know what I love is when they call us deluded. Getting managers like Hughton applying for our job and they have Robbie Fowler says an awful lot. Still it makes them feel better. Most prem fans I work with didn't even know there was a Bristol Rovers! I don't know why they keep making themselves look silly , if roles reversed I would keep quiet and focus on my team.

I always remember landing in O'Hare international in Chicago a few years ago and the security chap mentioned he was a Chelsea supporter and a member of their Chicago supporters club. I mentioned not everyone in the UK lives in London and that I lived in Bristol. 'Ah, Bristol City,yeah'. I mentioned there was another Bristol football club and he genuinely had never heard of them. :) True story.

Fair play to you for trying to boost awareness of Bristol Manor Farm FC!

Just commenting to keep this on page 1. 

Still a League below us and mocking us for being a midtable Championship club.

Point of order Mr Chairman! They are a division below us, not a league ... if they were a league below us they’d be in the National League (again) ... pedantic? Oh yes ... but what is wrong with accuracy?! Both Bristol clubs play in the English Football League ... that is made up of three divisions below the premier league ... #AsYouWere ... 🍷

.....Said the 6th Richest Club in the Country....Unlucky da Shit!

Honestly, they really are masters of projection! Have an inferiority complex of Bristol City and then blame it on them by claiming they have delusions of grandeur!

Absolute belters.

THE GIFT! 🎁

Yet they consider our signing of Taylor as purely an attempt to screw them over.

Taylor did okay for us, he was only ever going to be a bit-part player, one of those busy players who would chase everything in the last 20 minutes.

They claim he wasn't given a chance, but the reality is he wasn't quite good enough for 90 minutes against a solid Championship back 4, but could put in a solid 20 or 30 minutes against a tiring back 4 in the latter stages of a game.

Whilst he has had injury problems, it seems to be a similar tale for one of their other big money movers, Bodin who hasn't ripped the Championship a new one (not sure that lad who went to Ipswich had much time to do anything before injury - Harrison wasn't it?)

They have spent way too long outside the Championship to have any idea just how much the standard and quality has improved. And I would guess that should we ever reach the Prem, the standard and quality there will surprise us.

That striker they have who was scoring last season hasn't attracted much interest for a reason.

Harrison plays for Portsmouth, they claim he's better than Taylor blabla, best player they've had in recent history blabla, he looked awful.

Think he may be a City fan so I feel bad for saying it, but he was nowhere near even low endbChampionship standard, if that's their best? Laughable.

It couldn’t possibly have been the fact that we needed more goal scoring options, Taylor was local, scoring goals regularly, very cheap and clearly eager to come to us.

No, it can’t be as simple as that can’t it? 🤣

Its not our fault they include ridiculously low release clauses in their contracts.

Always playing the victims. Paranoid idiots.

The signing of ‘The Snake’ (as the inbreds named him) rubber stamped the actual gulf between the Bristol clubs and as they say ‘the truth hurts’.

The club poured salt into the gaping wound by announcing the signing the way they did and then threw a tank of petrol on to the fire with the ‘Welcome To Bristol’ posters that were created for billboards around the City.

It wasn’t our fault he signed for us. Any player would take an opportunity to better themselves financially, be it at City or any other club offering a hike in salary. However, we did make a song and dance about it which was a bit cringeworthy and this took the Gasheads over the edge of the meltdown cliff.

I stuck a ‘Welcome To Bristol’ sticker on a Gashead mate of mine and in true Gas style I was pretty much ‘offered out’ as a result. It was a very very sore subject indeed.

I guess it was our standard ‘Delusions of Grandeur’ thinking that The Snake would leave Rovers on the brink of the playoffs and pushing for the Championship to join City a club punching above their weight and in decline despite spunking millions of Bristol Sport franchise pounds.

Then he joined us for just under a Tilson.....Cue the blame game!

Just proves what a piss take this thread is . The mutants are laying low 

It has all been a bit quiet! With the lockdown and cancellation of league one there seems to have been very few opportunities for them to do something laughable every few days like usual.

I'll just throw in some random letters and numbers to cheer people up

Wouldn't go down that road we have only won once in the last 10 ourselves.

If they’re offered £700k, Rovers should take the money ASAP. Prior to joining Rovers JCH’s scoring record was average to poor. He’s had a good spell with them, but will this last or will he revert to his previous form?
