Bristol Rovers Dustbin Thread

Their last 2 league games will probably have been regarded as rough games against "top" teams. 

The truth is that they are both mid table league 1 sides, despite their history and stadium capacity, that didn't even make the play offs last season, and they've managed a (fortunate) single point from the 2 games. Games, perhaps, where Rovers may raise their game against "big boy" opposition. 

The future is bleak. The future is Garner..! 

 

Nail on head, exactly what many have mooted on slagchat!

They have the mighty Doncaster United away next and it`s fair to say they are a tad worried!

And after them, they have Northampton. That might be an interesting comparison, after our game this week. 

You know, the one where our 2nd string battered them 4-0, playing dazzling football, which could easily have resulted in 8 goals, if not 10.

When in the past 30 years was that posted...?! 🤷‍♂️

When they were 1-1 against Cardiff reserves in a pre season friendly. 

Its the 4th time I've posted it, felt they needed reminding we most certainly are watching...

We now have to add crowdies to the ever-lengthening list of hilarious things they have regaled us with down the years.

I think it should be ranked somewhere between Santa`s Grotto and Row M on the #sagdisasterarea scale.

That's a list I feel we need, just for a good old trip down memory lane

Oh we do have a good old reminisce on this thread every now and again and the list is quite impressive. Everything from being dumped out the league by a team wearing their kit to fake Fanta.

It truly is a prowed record of achievement.

Oh but don't forget that being dumped out of the league is the best thing to ever happen to them...

I suppose they had to put the cutouts up as the deluded few had paid for them but the average methane snorter watchin their game today must have been thinking (apart from this is really shit) those damn shiteds will give us unbearable stick for this.

Yep saggies, we've seen it and are laughing at you, yet again!

#LOSERS

OTIB.

Getting thrown out of the league by Sir Colin, in a r*vers kit, has to be at the top of their list but being the only side knocked out of a cup competition before it started was pretty good, as was the window head butter.

Wasn`t it just a brief sojourn into Division Five?

Of course, and only so they could show the sides down there how the Real Madrid of league 2 play, whilst wowing them with the best support in the world. 

If anything, they did it for the benefit of the sides of division 5, who will never see anything like the famous blue and white quarterz again...

They really serve no other purpose. 

I`ve said it before that I`m convinced that they are a long term installation project by the KLF. Surely only the diseased imaginations of Jimmy Cauty and Bill Drummond could dream up the catastrophes that have befallen them down the years.

Be fair. 

They've also kept Go Outdoors and Babestation afloat over lockdown

Edited for accuracy although I have a suspicion they will be back there relatively soon!

I’ll give it a go, bear in mind that most clubs aren’t lucky enough to have such comically shit ‘rivals’..

Relegated to Non League by a team wearing their kit

Santas Grotto

Bath City, Braintree, FGR etc

Only taking 26k to Wembley


Shafted by Sainsbury’s 

Barrow, Chesham, Barnet in the FA Cup

UWE Stadium plans down the bog

Losing their £10 million striker to us for Peanuts

The Worlds shittest open top bus parade 

6th Richest club in the country?

”Unlucky da shit” video

”Thank you Matty Taylor” ABBA style Matty Taylor tribute video

Plastic chairs 

Tents

Fake Fanta

Boob Cricket

Comparing their support to Leeds and Norwich

Babestation

Santas Grotto mk II

Thieving from their own
 

Their players coming to watch us play.

Piping crowd noise through their PA on match days

Putting our scores on their scoreboard during their own match

Those Villa fans exposing them for the obsessed morons they are

 

They really are the gift that keeps on giving. I’ve got a feeling I’ve forgotten a few.

You have forgotten mine, Peter !

Taking a year to get a “big” tv screen up.

Only then realising they had insufficient power, so needed some generators in rather quickly.

Then the crowning moment.

Finding our it was supplied by a company owned by none other than “the rosy cheeked tax dodger” from Guernsey.

Our very own Sir Steve Lansdown.

The non existent "Row M" 

The disabled viewing area cobbled together from 2 by 4 and plastic. 

The automatic electronic stadium entrance system consisting of a turnstile operator having to press a button. 

The requirement for an automatic stadium entrance system due to fans handing season tickets through the fence. 

Match day stewards taking back handers. 

A big screen TV for the stadium purchased from a company owned by our chairman. 

One of their biggest spends of the last 20 years only scoring 4 league goals in almost 100 appearances. 

Fans headbutting minibuses on the Gloucester Road. 

I think that's a few more.
