Bristol Rovers Dustbin Thread

One belter on slagchat reckons they`d have beaten Burton if they`d had a full stadium roaring them on.

Full? Roaring? When`s that ever happened? 1958?

 


September 6, 1954
Liverpool make four changes for their game with Bristol Rovers, at Bristol, this evening, for which they only left Liverpool this morning, so that they will have had close on seven hours train journey before taking the field.

As Hughes is fit and returns to centre half, Twentyman resumes his normal left half berth. Arnell tales over at centre forward from Louis Bimpson, who received an eye injury on Saturday, and Anderson fills the vacancy thus created at inside right. Anderson had 13 senior appearances last season, scoring five goals.

Bristol Rovers have made a good start this season under their flamboyant young manager BJ Tann. At home they have defeated Port Vale and Derby County and drawn with Birmingham City. Seven of their nine goals have been scored by Geoff Bradford, the player for whom Liverpool made a big offer a year ago. He got a single in each of the four opening games, and a hat-trick against Derby on Saturday.

Despite playing in less than half his club’s matches due to a broken leg. Bradford topped the Rovers’ marksmen last winter with 21 goals in 18 outings, getting at hat-tricks on five occasions. Half of his games were at inside right, as he only took over the leadership when Vic Lambden was dropped.

A stalwart defence.
So far, this campaign, the Rovers have made only one change in their side. Paddy Hale, a former reserve centre half, having had outings at inside right. The defence is the same as that which played almost unchanged throughout last season, when the first six men on the team sheet missed a total of only 18 games between them.

Ray Warren, captain and centre half, is now in his 21st season at the Eastville Stadium, and from all accounts is playing as well as ever, though, possibly a little more inclined to use his head to save his legs.

On the basis of what we have seen of Liverpool thus far, their prospects of victory to-night look remote unless they pull out something very much better than in any previous game. A displays no better than that against West Ham is unlikely to bring a point never mind two. But we can still hope.

Match: Football League, Second Division, at Eastville Stadium, kick-off: 18:15.
Bristol Rovers – Liverpool 3-0 (2-0).
Attendance: 25,574.
Bristol Rovers (2-3-5): Howard Radford, Harry Bamford, Les Edwards, Jackie Pitt, Ray Warren, Peter Sampson, George Petherbridge, Paddy Hale, Geoff Bradford, Bill Roost, Peter Hooper.
Liverpool (2-3-5): Dave Underwood, Tom McNulty, Frank Lock, Barry Wilkinson, Laurie Hughes, Geoff Twentyman, Jimmy Payne, Eric Anderson, Alan Arnell, John Evans, Billy Liddell.
The goals: 1-0 Bradford (40 min.), 2-0 Bradford (42 min.), 3-0 Bradford (85 min.).

One of them finally plucked up the courage to post about it 🤣

Mixture of a few sensible replies mixed with sheer bitterness. Does any other fanbase in the country take comfort from their rivals laughing at them for being shit? 
I expect a few of them have been busy writing emails of complaint over the weekend.

Whinging maggots.

The strange thing about the complaints made by the fans of the club that ruined Bristol Rugby financially, is their belief that this is the view held by the whole rugby club and not just one BCFC supporting player of that club. Having said that, you could quite understand why anyone associated with that club during the time of BRFC "acquiring" the rugby ground, why they would feel bitter towards their grounds new occupiers. I use the term occupiers, as the owners are based in the tax exile haven of Jersey. Pot and kettle spring to mind.

Sad loads of money no class, apparently stood on the Tote closet Gas

 

So that would mean Joe Joyce was minus 8 when he stood on the tote🤔

#Gaslogic dictates that now it's been said it must be absolute fact that Joe Joyce really did stand on the Tote End as a kid...........the fact you claim he was -8 at the time by using spurious facts such as his actual age and the date that Eastville was demolished simply proves that you're just a bitter Ted.

I think that particular one was referring to Lansdown.

I like the post that claims that one City fan comparing his jubilation on Friday to the night we beat Man Utd and the day Rovers fell out of the entire league is ‘proof’ of how much they are in the hearts and minds of Bristolians 🤣

No pal, it means seeing Rovers make complete tits of themselves was brilliant and judging by their embarrassing crowds, most Bristolians don’t even know they exist. 🤣

Interesting Bert but I’m sure you only posted this because they describe you as:

“flamboyant young manager BJ Tann”

You may not be young anymore but  you’re definitely flamboyant

******* hilarious that they spent the best part of 10 years shitting on Bristol Rugby at every twist and turn including stealing the Mem out from under their feet and then have the audacity to complain when they start doing well after the club had to move to survive. 

And as for the sad ***** that claim they were Bris through and through until they moved to the Gate, **** them. If they can't look beyond that to see the team then Bris doesn't need their support anyway. 

Joe Joyce walks on Cider.

As usual for the average sag it's a pint of bitter and twisted.

Exactly. How can you call yourself a fan if you're not willing to support a team based on where they play? I watched Bristol many times at the tented village, and whilst the overall experience was pretty awful, I still supported them.

If ever you needed more proof of just how much the Gas is in the hearts and minds of the people of Bristol, it’s this. The Gas getting relegated is on par as winning a major European trophy.

I was going ask that! Surely he was too young.

No doubt they will make it a fact that he did by the time they go to bed this evening.
