Bristol Rovers Dustbin Thread

I don't,  what was he annoyed about?

Obviously the forum long since gone and in-fact he deleted the post but copy of the associated thread on here about it with the full rant included

I know "can we play you every week" is something of a cliche but they just might be on to something.      Didn't make the trip over there but first half was poor, after the interval we raised our game and were deserved winners.  

Top of the league is good and all very well but it's like two games we've played along with others, a bit soon to be getting carried away.    Some (of our) supporters are getting excited and while not to knock your own, but some of our fans will do a dance every time the fridge light comes on.

We have Rochdale next, I can see three wins out of three but that's just the sort of opposition that have caused us problems before.    If it seems too good to be true it usually is.      We're going to leave Rovers alone for now, I'm tired of beating them 🙂  but we really need to be getting out of this League as soon as possible and return to the second level.       Yeah we're not the force of years before, but us in the third division ?    Come on it's not really on is it.

Not forgetting the Feng Shui thing...

Feng Shui, we always thought, was the sound you made when you sneezed but, we've been told, it is actually an ancient Chinese art that involves moving your furniture around your room until you feel mellow (or something like that).

When Feng shui "experts" Guy de Beaujeu and Patrick Stockhausen arrived at Bristol Rovers one day last year and promised that if let work their magic a mellow Rovers line-up would beat Gillingham in their next game, the club said "yes please".

So, on the advice of the pair, the club installed a tank containing plastic fish behind one of the goals, staff were asked to ensure that the ground's toilet seats were down at all times, a ceramic frog was hung above the front gate, potted house plants were positioned in all four corners of the players' dressing room and hanging wind chimes were placed around the stadium. Match result? Bristol Rovers 0, Gillingham 1.

PS: Last Friday night mortified Rovers officials tuned in to ITV2's comedy series The Gatecrashers and realised they'd been had - the whole Feng shui thing was a prank. Blushes all 'round. Ceramic frog binned.

Shit happens mate. My first game watching city was 1976 as a 5 year old. So I watched your club in the top flight with us [although I can’t remember it that much) You won the F.A and uefa cups. A amazing achievement for a relatively small club. Similar to forest in many ways . Even though you’re in league one now. We can all still laugh at Bristol rovers.

Got the open top bus.

Remembered ‘Barcelona of L2’ just after I’d posted 🤣

I would also add that overweight cretin who put "Windass 9" on the back of his cheap rag.

Boycotting Sainsbury's.

The famous chasers night club canopy.

The sickly needy grovelling please love us with Sunderland.

The Tramp.

Moaning on Talk Sport about how big they are after our Cup Semi Final which only served to make them look even more stupid and small minded.

The strange fascination with tents.

Their desperation on the Man City forum after we played really well at the Etihad and outsung the Champions of England.

The reply IIRC was 'who are you'?
