Bristol Rovers Dustbin Thread

Yes, but you are forgetting that Villas European success was all down to those 2 fixtures against Rovers and for than, they will always hold them dear, as an intrinsic part of the formation of their recent history. 

I fact, if you watch back over their European Cup final, as they lift the trophy aloft, you can just about make out their captain dedicating their triumph to Bristol Rovers. 

Sad but true.

:yes:

It runs deeper than that, Major.ifbyou listen to Villa fans renowned chat "Villa, Villa, Villa, Villlla, Villa, Villa, Viilllaa" 

You'll hear their subliminal homage to Rovers.

After signing McCormick , the Chelsea ‘ wonder kid ‘ here is a recap from his time at Shrewsbury.

’ 

WA
Wayne8513 HRS AGO

More research and balance needed.

"hardly saw anything of McCormick, like Colkett from the year before I guess the non competitive nature of life at the Chelsea Under 21’s has not prepared him for real football"

"Showed flashes of brilliance in his first game and looked like he could be an asset. The games after that he put in some terrible performances, he couldn’t do anything right"

"The kid is probably great showing off juggling a ball in a park but can't tackle or pass when the pressure is on"

Coming for us .

That's a little bit confusing. 

I'm sure we were told that their foray in to non league football was the best thing that ever happened to them and the resulting years have seen unparalleled success..! 

Depends which way you look at it. 

If I were to say to you that a non-league club who is struggling financially and has a poor Infastructure, has managed to get themselves a few promotions in the last 5 years and are now plying their trade in League 1, then you would say that they have been a relatively successful club wouldn't you?

NLBR - Non League Bristol Rovers. Punching above their weight since 2016.

they probably were rivals with Villa for a brief period....Villa climbed out of Division 3 in the 70's on their way to a European Cup win in the early 80's

So basically, the full and entire extent of their ambition is to play in the third division? Jesus wept.

Success for me would be playing in the same division as the S@@t and doing the double over them! Preferebly in a nice new ground with a Bristol born lad scoring the winner.

And we`re supposed to be the obsessed ones....................................

How cute that they see getting the chance to play us as ‘success’.
 

If that doesn’t demonstrate how far behind us they’ve fallen in the last couple of decades then I don’t know what does?
No wonder we just laugh at them these days.

The most telling thing about that statement is that they'd see it as "success" if that were to happen in league one, due to our failure..!

Success in their eyes would be erecting a new tent, importing a bus stop and calling it a stand, adding row M to it, replacing the portaloos with a 21st century solution and finding some unexpired crisps and Fantas to sell to their dwindling fanbase.

In truth, survival is about as much as they can hope for as things stand, though Ben Garner seems to be doing as much as he can to ensure their speedy demise.

Under Rishi Sunak new scheme at the Memorial Ground;

You give the man on disabled gate £10, he gives you back £3.33, he keeps £3.33, and then lets you in. 

When inside you find out that no spectators are allowed in and so you have to leave. You ask the nice man for your tenner back and he says go **** yourself. 

You realise that he actually kept £6.67 and you've been taken for a mug.

Get home to listen to the boyz in blue lose 2-0

I see they're currently running a thread titled "Why we will never be successful" - methinks they may be on to something there. Plenty of mileage in that one.

Are they seriously asking that question "Why we will never be successful" and nobody from the dwindling blue few can give an  answer that doesn't involve dribbling.

I mean, it's not like it's a difficult question, is it.

The answer is the same as it has been for the last 100 years or more. No money, no fans and no ambition. Some things never change.

There is a big difference between us and the gas HAVING to rent to survive. They sold eastville because they were skint and ended up renting it . They rented Bath because they could'nt afford the rent increase at eastville. They left Bath to share then take over the Memorial Ground(thanks to dodgy board member) They pay rent to the fake sheik because he owns the ground as security till he builds houses on it.

"hate will make you blind "  that sums up rovers fans

It's more the incessant stroking themselves.

PS whoever put "Walking" in the swear filter, please undo it or just swap it for a starred version.

I beg to differ - they do have ambition, it`s to finish one place above us once in their lifetime.

They would be more than happy to play in The Downs league as long as we were in the division below them, sums them up.

I'm sure one of them voiced an ambition of LOSING games in the Championship.

Nothing screams ambition more than wanting to lose game.
