Bristol Rovers Dustbin Thread


Recommended Posts

Apparently, Swindon's goalkeeper (on loan from Bournemouth) has been recalled and they need an urgent replacement for Saturday for their match against Rovers.

The word on one of their (Rovers) forums is that we are going to loan them JoJo W - I can't really see it, but just imagine if he plays a blinder and keeps a clean sheet.

Correct me if I’m wrong, but I thought that after the Matty Taylor transfer, they said that no deals would be done between them and us?

Tommy Widdrington - 4/7

Lee Mansell - 6/1

Joey Barton - 8/1

Ian Holloway - 12/1

Byron Anthony - 14/1

Nigel Adkins - 16/1

Tony Pulis - 16/1

Chris Powell - 20/1

Strangely if you go a little lower, a friend of mine is about 22/1 at some places. He manages one of the women's teams.

I asked him if he was applying and he said Wali speaks to him often and seems to rate him. "stranger things have happened" he said

£10 million, the Bears one only cost £11 Million and have you seen that up to the Sunday League shed they are building.

You couldn't make it up. Oh yeah sorry they could.

Surely the rovers will go down the cheapest option which is to give the job to someone already at the club so they don't have the extra expense of employing a third manager of the season 

 

Cometh the hour, cometh the man.

I've had a word with Sunday League Dave from the Dog & Duck FC and he says he'll do it for £60 a week, providing he doesn't have to hold up that bloody embarrassing scarf when he's announced. Can't work Saturdays either, 'cause he's on shifts then.

Actually, scrub that. He's probably overqualified for the job, thinking about the Garner appointment.

I think they expected Tisdale because it was more of a Lansdown appointment, you know the type that has no experience in the second tier. Also Warnocks record speaks for itself so yes surely most City fans would have had warnock over tisdale a few years back.

I never wanted Warnock anywhere near us. Pulis was bad enough.

Having met him, he's actually a perfectly nice guy.

He is a nice enough guy, but he is (and craves being) the village idiot. 

I can't think of many things sweeter than him taking them down to the basement.

"1 enemy inside the tent is worse than 10,000 outside the tent"  😂

80%....

Do you drive..? Yes. 

Are you a convicted canine abuser..? Not recently. 

Can you count to 11..?1,2,3,4,7,6,5,8,9,10,16.... Almost, yes.

Do you prefer us or City..? Always loved Rovers. Not sure who City are. 

Do you know much about football and more specifically the division that we are competing in..? No. 

 

He ticks most of the boxes. Let's go with him 👍

Well Agent Jojoja has signed for Swindon on loan , so that should be interesting.

So the Director of Football says the recruitment was right, that they have a good squad and the managers have got 80% of what they wanted.
I'm thinking the managers asked for 8 cups of tea and 2 new players, got their tea didn't they? 

He has really thrown the last two managers under the Bus. As he would have been involved in recruitment he seems to be laying the whole blame on Garner and Tisdale, which is fine. Puts a lot of pressure on him as temporary manager and the new bloke to get results. 
Big game Saturday, if they don't win it really could mean trouble. I hope our own Jojo Woolacott has a very good game.

Jojo to play a blinder and save a penalty as the Gas slump to yet another defeat and sink further into the drop zone.  Those are the headlines I want to see.

Though taking points from Watford is more important, of course.

Well you can almost guarantee that they will get a penalty....its what they do.

It begs the question, who was the enemy in the tent?

Agent Tisdale?

Alf Garner?

Matty Taylor?

Al Qaeda?

We know who the 10,000 outside the tent are, all the loyal blue few to tight to pay to get in.

Mild mannered computer repair expert with a questionable grasp of the truth.
