Bristol Rovers Dustbin Thread


Recommended Posts

...anyway, to ensure normal service is resumed...I see one of 'them' thought it was 'disrespectful' for us to call him 'Dopey Darrell' BUT...

...after their last game away at Bradford he was quoted in the Bristol Post as saying 'Kelle Roos has made a match-winning save at the end...'

How does a match-winning save secure a 1-1 draw???!!!

Yep - 'Dopey'

Did he not listen to Dopey on Radio Nottinghamshire or whatever station it was in his Mansfield days?

Calling him stupid would be an insult to stupid people

Maybe I'm in the minority but I totally support the boycott of tonight's game 

^ This. I'll gladly mock them for all manner of reasons, but the only Gas who need mocking on this occasion are those who paid more for their second visit than they did for the first.

Fair play to those who voted with their feet and wallets and elected to stay away.

Sure, but weren't we boycotting the first away game of last season in protest at being charged £39 per ticket by Sheff Weds - but we still took 1,184 ?

And that was a long journey for those hardy souls. 

Oh ffs. I couldn't have made my point much clearer.

But if you are more interested in taking the piss than anything else knock yourself out.

Can you imagine the hysterical scenes from the blue few if we took 400 fans to a game that's 45 minutes away, boycott or not?

 

And that's why mummy told you to be better than the other boys, you might actually be able to take the high ground in future.

Well regardless of the fact it's Rovers, I don't mind saying I'm glad they won tonight. It means there is at least some justice for Swindon's detestable decision to charge again. Swindon deserved nothing from that game and I'm glad that's exactly what they got.

As for those attempting to mock the Rovers fans for their poor turnout, you miss the point entirely. In my eyes, the fewer they took tonight, the more impressive it would have been.

Well said.   No way was i going to pay again, and in the same circumstances most City fans would have done the same.     They actually only gave us the more expensive seats this time and not the open terrace,just to exploit the situation even more.  Looks like they ended up making a lose on the day with the reduced attendance and policing costs and getting 0 points.  Shame

It was a disgrace and I was fully in support of your boycott. It's a shame that 400 still went. 

I draw the line at ever wanting you to win a match though. Even against Swindon!

Typically bigging up of the Gappers' Swindle triumph on Points Gas this lunchtime. 

When was the last time you saw all the goals and managerial interviews from a mid-week league match featuring City? Especially giving it a pre-programme plug.the day after the game.

More likely that it's the small percentage of those who are so sick of being shut out for every match that their desperation to actually get in overwhelmed their disgust at Swindon's double-charging decision....the other 999999 would have stayed in the car park like normal

You create your own luck.

Or cheat to get players sent off. Dive outside the box into the box to con the referee and generally get every bit of luck that's been going for the past 2 seasons to scrape fortuitous promotions. 

The only way you "create your own luck" is by cheating. 

It wont last forever. Serious question... When was the last time Rovers won a football match against a team who finished the game with 11 men or didn't have a  penalty to help them..?

Luck occurs when preparation meets opportunity.

Careful the Pompey/sag fan will post another video of a game we played in 2008

What on earth makes a lower league fan of either/both clubs who have had a terrible time of it over the last 5/10 years or so and still remain firmly routed in our shadow, feel the need to go on the forum of a bigger, higher placed, more progressive and all round better club giving it the big one..?! 

I'd be too embarrassed and try and convince myself that I didn't care!

Obviously a relation of Phthonus @Bar BS3 who was the personification of jealousy and envy :yes:
