20 million in transfer fees yet your best player isn't yours?

Clubs didn't even want your "best" player on a free. Says everything you need to know about your glorified conference team IMHO.

Has anyone noticed that in the photograph used in the article the Memorial Stadium has new blue seats? (To the left of Wally). The stand has also been rebuilt. The photo doesn't look anything like the real world, unless the development has taken place overnight

Holy sh!t, the guys a complete loon.  Who thought that was a good idea?

Didnt the Gas lags sell their top striker Jamie Cureton to Reading a divisional rival at the time for peanuts?

And this moron criticises City for selling JK, a very talented yet tactically inept striker for a possible 13M profit... At least 9M so far.

It shows how little ammunition they got for piss taking when they try and use a 15 million pound transfer fee . The green eyed monster does strange things to the head .

I understood RBS were calling in the overdraft and they needed cash quick.

Which is why he went on the cheap, Reading has the cash available

£250,000 I think? Was a bargain as he was being touted at £1million plus!

well a bank calling in an overdraft isn't as exciting as the story I was told !! But think your answer sounds more like the truth !!

Maybe after the chairman's daughter he got jiggy with the offspring of someone from RBS.

Use both. We'll never know the truth.

Hibs I believe offered 1M at the time but the Gas went for the Reading bid which was 250k

I don't want to be seen to stand up for those cretins but my guess is Wally is pictured at Sabadell pre season

 

If so, it's even worse than an edited photo of the Mem. He's pretending someone else's ground is his own. That's like Steve Lansdown having his photo taken at Wembley and saying look at my wonderful investment.  

It's obvious that Wally didn't want anyone to see the real Mem, as it wouldn't fit his story.

On the gas getting these 2 kids in from Chelsea. Have these kids done something wrong and need a kick up the backside or have chelsea not done their homework? The training facilities and the horfield fallout zone will be a big shock to them I'd imagine

1961 was a momentous year which witnessed the Bay of Higgs invasion, the birth of Peter Beardsley and Yuri Gagarin achieving worldwide fame by becoming the first man not to bid for Bristol Rovers Football Club. 

In the city’s northern suburbs the winds of change were certainly beginning to gust after an assistant bank manager, cruising along Stapleton Road looking for value, suddenly found we could satisfy his desire for debt absorption. Taking control of Rovers, and promising everything except revelation, he immediately set about feeding the players and establishing a comprehensive worming and flea treatment programme. Dai Gerbil was appointed Chairman and our match day magazine boldly pronounced “we mean serious business” alongside a photograph of Ken Dodd. But sure enough, after a period of loan consolidation, the football establishment was indeed rocked to it’s foundations by the launch of our infamous No Buy No Buy policy. 

Such an experiment quickly attracted attention from the movers and shakers of English football who were moved and shaken by the concept of running a football club without spending any cash whatsoever. Walter Winterbottom came to me for advice and I suggested thermal underwear. Alf Ramsey asked what I thought of 4-2-4 so I told him it was too expensive. And when Sir Stanley Rous, Alan Hardaker and Jimmy Hill arrived at Eastville determined to discover the secret of our lack of success they were met by a wall of silence which independent experts verified as acoustically sound and in full compliance with local planning regulations so that lorries could deliver 24 hours per day 7 days per week. 

As the 1961/62 season progressed it became clear that other clubs were baffled by our tactics and found it difficult to keep a straight face let alone a straight back four. Some compared us to the famous Hungarian team of the 1950’s but most thought we were more like the goulash of the same period. Our gallant side of has-beens, never-weres and young cockney rascals struggled on helplessly until a final day defeat at Luton Town consigned us to relegation. 

In the ensuing meltdown our No Buy No Buy policy rapidly disappeared down the toilet and, with the stench of failure overwhelming even the pungent fumes from the nearby gas works, speculation mounted that our new owner may be nothing more than the latest in a long line of busted flushes.

 

To be continued …

 

  

Good old Bert, die hard Gashead able to ensure that we can continue to laugh at ourselves ..  :ph34r:

Has there been any news on their tweet appeal to help them win £100?

That's got to be worth at least 2 pitches at the car boot?

Aside from the glaring error of Bristol being the largest city outside of London, there's a lot of words but not much substance in that report.

Surprised that a league club didn't have provision for catering for the players........then again,..

 

Southern Englands second largest city... 

It's very unlike a City fan to misquote or twist the words of anything Rovers related isn't it? :P

In all seriousness though, the comment below would raise some (more?) serious red flags.

 

 “If I don’t have Jordanian players in the future playing in Bristol, it means I’m a failure,”

Some of you might be interested in picking it a part

 “If you compare the football industry curve from the early 90s until now with other industries, football is the only one that’s going upwards,” he said. REALLY ?

 Now that Bristol Rovers have reached League One, this figure jumps to $2.5 million.  They get paid in Dollars?

“It’s not about spending cash to buy Ronaldo or Messi. " No shit !

After months of intensive negotiations, al-Qadi eventually beat around 10 other bidders to secure ownership of the club  The other 9 bought raffle tickets !

 Due to a non-disclosure agreement, he can’t reveal the figures involved, but he insisted his family got a good deal. “You would be amazed at how much value we got,” he said. They got it for a quid ! (sorry, one dinar) 

But his critics are also likely missing the important wider benefit of having a Jordanian with a significant foothold in what’s probably the richest and most watched football league in the world.  Yeah, League One !!

Why should it. We all know Wael is part of tbe Jordanian FA and youth development.

If Waels investment in Rovers mean we get first dibs or give young Jordanian players an avenue to the English leagues what is the problem.

Also potentiay opens Rovers up to thst market even more

Obviously they need to be deemed good enough but seems perfectly logicsl to me

What market? 

Here's a list of famous Jordanian footballers....

 

Great list isn't it? I'm all for development but show me a Jordanian international that doesn't play for a team called Al-something or other. If there was even 1% of talent out there it would of reached European football by now.

Even with investment now it could take decades before it bares any fruit.

...well, I suppose it's nice to have a hobby.

So basically you've got nothing to throw back at us then?...just that we have a striker on a season long loan.

Reminds me of the time I asked Weezord to give us his best bit of banter and he replied that the Atyeo Stand wasn't joined up to the rest of the ground. 

:facepalm:
