Bristol Rovers Dustbin Thread

Bert Tann is the only decent gashead on here, plus he has a sense of humour, so little wonder you don't think he's one of yours.

Once he starts displaying signs of severe paranoia and he prattles on about attendances, despite some serious failings in that department, then maybe he'll get the recognition he deserves from you as the gashead he is.

Give me ten Bert Tann's over one Prancing Fanny. Don't take that as your cue to talk about attendances mind. Although seeing as you were going to mention it, we sold out Swindon last time we were there, and the time before, but Rovers haven't. Strange.....

Bit unfair on Miah and In the Net, they`re both good value but I take your point. As for that clown weasel or whatever the Pompey fan calls himself........

I'm sorry if my postings cause you distress but I have to say that criticism, questioning and lampooning are a part of our history.

The term "Gasheads" is a relatively recent one and unfortunately, despite the many excellent qualities in our support base, has also come to signify passivity, self obsession and an unwillingness to confront harsh truths. When we were simply Rovers or the Pirates it was home supporters who used to sing "send Bert Tann to Vietnam" and I've had many heated arguments with  genuine fans who were angry that the money used to build the North Stand at Eastville in 1959 was not spent on the team. Since "Gasheads"  was coined for us by the reds we have hardly become a better football club.  But nowadays, as you say and Nicholas once said, challenging the club and offering constructive criticism is deemed healthy. That is unless someone actually tries to do it in which case they must be a City fan.

In terms of professionalism, communication, investment and having a strategic plan which is visible to supporters I can't see much difference between Nicholas and the new regime. My "lone arranger" skit was focusing on the likelihood that they are preparing to take on massive debts which will dwarf Nicholas's little MSP loan and yet everyone is clapping and cheering as if there is no tomorrow.

Shouldn't someone be asking about this ?

Or do we carry on with "he's a Gashead, he is a successful businessman, he knows what's best", like we did before ?

 

 

  

 

 Debate is healthy.  Tell you what, meet you in the bar at the Mem before any of our upcoming league games? 100% genuine offer, not picking a fight, quite the contrary, shake each other's hand and I'll buy you a Thatchers and we can debate how best to both air our concerns and constructively support our team.

As I say, 100% no bullshit, genuine offer.  Next 3 home games Rochdale, Port Vale, Fleetwood.  Drinks on me.  Deal?

These really are genuine questions to any posters who wish to consider them reasonably.

If someone like the equivalent of Bert Tann posted regularly on Gaschat, taking the position of being a City fan, assuming of course they were allowed to do that, and consistently criticised Bristol City, having special bile for Bristol Sport and without ever a word of praise for anything positive like a promotion or a new manager, how would you feel about it?

As on here, no doubt "Alan Dicks" or whatever he might call himself, would get loads of likes from Rovers fans, and congratulations for seeing the truth about how rotten the club really are, or at least as he portrays the club. 

You would read this on Gaschat and come to the conclusion that the bloke is a total shyster, wouldn't you?  You wouldn't take a word he says about being a City fan with any credibility, would you? 

Would you?

 

He couldn't do that because he would be banned on the forum, the reason a lot of your fans are so deluded is that they are in a self feeding loop, anyone not playing to the tune gets banned. It's kinda sad to see tbh

Nearly as good as yours apparrently but they win awards for football related qualities. 

By the way just randomly browsing :

There's quite a few on there who only have negative stuff to say about us and Bristol Sport. We tend to laugh at them

If it was a city fan then I'd think he was an extremely negative one who looks to poke holes at our regime, but that doesn't mean there are no flaws

I would say he's 100 % gas . But because he questions and has a different view to u . You got to call him out . Because you're so paranoid that a fellow saghead can be so critical. I know a few really sound sagheads and they don't think everything is rosy . And they call me a shithead just to make sure u know there proper sags .

ha ha - bless these funny gas heads they do make I laugh. 4K crawl out from under a rock to visit Stamford bridge and it all starts over again - a good mate of mine is of a gas persuasion and even he admits that a large percentage of the rovers fans are totally deluded. Keep the thread alive - it's good to laugh.

They've been made to look silly over attendances countless times, yet they're the ones who keep bringing it back up. Absolute clowns.

How many will they get at Home to Reading in the EFL Trophy on Tuesday, or is that going to be a "boycott"

Nope, there's no changing of the goalposts for that game. As far as they're concerned in their black and white World, we took about 160 to Scunthorpe which is shameful because we're a Championship club. Their game next week is at home in a competition they must be desperate to win, especially as they've been in it more times than us and we've managed to win it 3 times compared to their zilch..

They're a League 1 club now, their fans aren't 'plastic' according to them so let's see how many they get at home on Tuesday when the opponents aren't someone like Chelsea.

10,000 I reckon.

Genuine question, why did you lot boycott the league cup game with Scunny?

 

I love it when you cretins try to give us shit. We had something like 168 fans at Scunny....and I genuinely believe you lot think you would have taken more. You will tell me different though....your a typical Rovers fan. You're a pathological liar

Im amazed at how many Rovers fans are dining out on 4k at Chelsea. We took similar to Coventry years ago, we took 5k+ to West Brom for christ sake. Big deal

Last I heard....you cant even sell out Swindon. Pathetic.

One thing I will commend you on is yout manager. Proving to be a top young coach.

I cannot wait to you lose him....which you will.

I got locked in a debate with one on facebook. He still believes that this Jordanian guy is a billionaire. Absolute gold. 

When I asked him to explain why the new ground wasnt being built if he had all that money, his reply was "to much change in such a small amount of time would be detrimental"

Im still laughing now

Fact is, we only took around 400 less to Scunny for a dull cup tie than what they took to Southend.

That will be the Southend game that was being built up in some quarters as grudge match and has been since Southend took the piss down Gloucester Road.

Not really we have been discussing boycotting that one for ages now, any game against 'B' sides needs avoiding...who knows where changes like that will lead.

Its hard to compete with you guys attendance-wise when you all have 6+ kids crammed into those council homes.

Haha, so when you get less then 2k through the gate next week, its because of a 'boycott'?

Sure.....

Rovers are currently 18th in League One (or 62nd in the Premier League, as you will no doubt tell people), yet you have the audacity to come on here and try to take the piss out of City fans.

Just for the record, I have always said that UWE will 100% happen for Rovers, based on my own personal relationship with them. But having seen the plans UWE have not-so-secretly floated out for a large part of the plot of land that the stadium was going in in recent weeks, unless Rovers' plan is to play their games in the corridors of a student block or new business learning base, you can kiss that pipe dream goodbye once and for all.

Chew on that

I understand the boycott from the likes of Coventry, Sheffield utd, Wycombe, Mansfield etc, but your mob, really!

would it really make that much of an impact?

Surely it would be like any normal match day from the previous hundred odd years!

Besides, you gasheads are used to being shovelled any old rubbish, not like you lot to put up any sort of protest when you constantly get walked over by your own club.

Then stop quoting me, but you see it is a concern to me that so many lives are being lost to talking bullocks to another Football Club, who btw are no longer non league basement but are Bristol based, some of the hate fueled comments is very indicative of a mindset that is based on no other reasons other than a ridiculous 'tribal' near neighbour conflict that has long disappeared  in a society that has evolved.

Clearly some are still struggling with evolution, this is one reason we won't see top flight football at AG for longer than some would like, it is counter productive negative and very childish, just the sort of attitudes SL is trying to counter.

 

However I don't expect many to stop and think , merely to carry on regardless, because that is the nature of the beast, it's difficult to actually change behaviour, but it might be a start if the Mods took away their toys.. 

You're right close the forum, there are people on here who wish to debate things you are not interested in. That's not the point of a forum is it? 

Alternatively, perhaps we could name this thread something else, something that would give you a clue to as to the content of the thread so you could ignore it in future?

I'm not really sure how some lighthearted urine extraction of our neighbours for their constant comedy performances and consistent petty whining is going to hold us back from progressing as a club? In fact you could say the opposite given what's happened to the respective clubs over the last few years!

As someone else said earlier, if someone went regularly onto a Gas forum claiming to be a City fan and constantly sneered and made digs at their own club (City), the board and Bristol Sport and not once showed ANY form of positivity about any promotion or any changes / improvements would you *really* believe (s)he was a City fan? Really!? 

I have no problem with people offering constructive criticism of the club but a "supporter" that still cannot see that some things have improved significantly since Mansfield?  We could have done a Stockport easily.  

A true supporter would be able to identify and acknowledge both the positives AND negatives and offer a balanced objective perspective.  Not Bert though.  Constant one way criticism. 

I said a while ago I first thought old Bert was a casualty of either the Boardroom or Supporters Club split a few years ago - but nothing has changed since regime change.

So either I'm right and (s)he's no Gashead or if (s)he is then I really do pity them for being so bitter and twisted and unable to see absolutely any positives.  Talk about glass half empty and, as I said before, what a miserable existence not to be able to ever get any enjoyment out of watching the team you say you support. 

But sometimes you can misinterpret the written word and my offer of a friendly pint or two, at my expense, still stands.  I'd genuinely be happy to have a decent conversation about what can be done to facilitate change and also positively support our club or if that's a bit heavy, just reminiscing about all of the good times :thumbsup:
