Standard.

The latest reporter covering them, Sam Frost, comes out with this North Korean horseshit all the time.

Ben Garner 2 wins in 16 league games, bet he doesn’t print that.

Thanks for this, I’d forgotten about their end of season plummet! 😂

Sunderland and Rovers have very similar grounds. One is the Stadium of Light. The other is the Stadium of Blight 

I see the fewers have Sunderland away first - how are they going to manage their annual "Do you like us better than Bristol City-a-thon" remotely?

Pretty sure every Sunderland fan, well every fan of every other club, is a signed up member of the Rovers forum. 

Most probably donate a fiver a year to the upkeep, by way of a supportive gesture, to their "second team", so they will all congregate on there I should think.

There will no doubt be a fewer who says he lives in Sunderland and pretends he went to watch the game round some Mackem`s house and will regale us afterwards about how wonderful they think the blue few are and how much they hate us.

This will of course be lapped up by the deluded ones.

The debt to Dwane Sports Ltd is held by the football club's parent company Bristol Rovers 1883 Ltd and that is still outstanding. 

 

Smoke and mirrors, Bert. It's all to create an illusion of the club being valuable, when in reality, it's only value is the rugby ground.

Doesn't make a lot of difference does it? Wally owns the club and owns Duane Sport.

This is true, but it does make a difference. Some of the Rovers supporters believe the club is debt free because of previous statements regarding finance / debt. As W C Fields said:

 
“If you can't dazzle them with brilliance, baffle them with bullsh*t”

But does he own the club and Dwane Sports Ltd ?

Or is his family still in control ?

This is what was said on June 19th.

But the £ 18.4 million loan owed to Dwane Sports by Bristol Rovers 1883 Ltd has not been capitalised. 

 

Firstly, Club President Wael Al Qadi has reached agreement for the acquisition of a controlling stake in our holding Company Dwane Sports from the other members of his family. This provides him with full control over Bristol Rovers (1883) Limited (BRFC1883) and Bristol Rovers Football Club Limited(BRFC).

As part of this process, Wael has agreed to capitalise £18.4m of loans owed to Dwane Sports from BRFC 1883 and £16.5m owed by BRFC to BRFC1883. In addition to the above, he has also agreed to write off £2.1m in interest that was charged on these loans, leaving the club (apart from our ordinary trade creditors, leasing and HP agreements) substantively debt free.

Ah, so he is still owed millions either way.
