Bristol Rovers Dustbin Thread

Recommended Posts

Will be another Hereford Utd!

reform as Bristol Rovers 2018 ltd and have to work their way up the football pyramid. In the meantime we capture any new local young fans and move forward as a Premier league club, ground expansion with regular 35k crowds and attractive fixtures across Europe - Madrid, Milan, Munich, Paris etc.....

The vision!!!

That was a deeply arousing sentence. We can dream!

Perhaps they will reform and merge with Bath as Bristol & Bath Dons or something. Then they could steal Twerton and ditch the Bath name.

I'm sure it's crossed wally's mind to do that now he knows a new stadium isn't possible and he sitting on a gold mine in terms of housing development on the mem land.

I'm fairly certain they have had it chaps.

From the latest noises emanating from Chernobyl,  it appears to be a fire sale and if a buyer cannot be found very quickly then all subsequent options will v bad news for the Blue Few.

I genuinely believe that within 12-24 months they will end up 'back where they belong' - ground sharing with Bath City in L2.

Obv we are going to laugh long and hard in the short term, but celebrating the financial demise of any football club (even them!) leaves a bit of a nasty taste. 

For the avoidance of doubt, I'm not suggesting we give them any 'help' (we all remember '82 etc) but should we really 'gloat' if / when the brown stuff finally hits the fan.......

 

YES.

Actually its, Oh Yes.

Interestingly, if the sags really did go properly bang and were dissolved I believe that any pheonix club wouldn't be called Bristol Rovers. 

As examples, Hereford United are now Hereford F.C. and Chester City are now Chester F.C.

Glos County League will do.

I'd put them in the Downs League Div 4.  I might even wander up to watch Clifton Vincent Reserves give them a good hiding.

Following the last few weeks on here full of threads containing rumours/facts, I decided to email our Chairman last night.

No doubt he would have been at Geoff Dunfords funeral today but replied to my email late this afternoon.

Please see the email below and please don't shoot me I'm only a messenger and have named my source!


A Concerned Gashead.


Wed 08/11/2017 1656.


Good Afternoon David,


I appreciate your concern and in your email you highlight the reason, unsubstantiated rumours, on an internet related BRFC forum. Football clubs up and down the country are always subject to unfounded damaging leaks from either disgruntled people betraying their positions of trust whilst working within the Club and those, who might have left and wish to leave their dissatisfied mark!

I can assure you that the owners have no intention of relinquishing ownership and the steady rebuilding of the Club continues on and off the field. What we all wish for, is the team to find some more consistency on the field, which would make all of us a lot happier!


Kind regards


Steve Hamer
Chairman

Bristol Rovers Football Club

The same man who said landing lights on 

stadium will be built 

DC  to have a top six budget 

Taylor will not be sold for less than them million

the list goes on

A seasonal poem by B J Tann RA

 

“Dirty days hath November”

Bathed in darkness by the Jordan bank a tented village lays desolate and forlorn

As riders approach, behold, a shimmering shaft of light penetrates the deepening gloom and a purveyor of conveniently sized plastic food containers comes forth

Pity, say the wise men from the East, we backed you each-way in a handicap with less than sixteen runners and if you had finished in the first three we may have been in business

Hellenic Premier fits the bill, level 9, but as a Bath-based team I suppose it would be Western Premier. We can hope they end up ground squatting in somewhere like Aberdeen I suppose.

Ahem, EFL League 9 as I'm sure that it will be renamed in North Bristol.

I'll have to think about that one a bit more.

Not sure if the riders from the east are Jordanian, Taiwanese, or it's Barry Bradshaw back in the picture with EW.

Bristol Rovers 2018 Ltd, playing in League 2 in a different city sounds good. 

Not as good as Bristol Rovers, dissolved by the administrator and taxman......

Whether you are one of us, one of them trying to work us into a lather, or one of them who loves their club dearly and are angry at the way things have gone, you are one of the funniest and most original posters on here.

Hah! In the Highland League with Brora Rangers, Fort WIlliam and WIck Academy, see how many they take away then :) . 

They'll surely have a Highlands branch of their supporters club. Won't they?

As much as it pains me, I just don't see Wally walking away. Not if he still has FIFA ambitions.

I think they'll be fine.

Having ambitions will only get you so far when your haemorrhaging thousands, week after week, I suppose he could always sale his watch

We need to warn everyone around on behalf of our egg chasing Bristol Sport cousins and their ground loss.

Bristol Rovers are like a vampire - never invite them in! 

Or maybe an infestation...

You know they'd be whining about why isn't the taxman paying for a new stadium, why is he being so mean and demanding money when clearly the Gas deserve charity...

Particularly as Bath RFC still have not resolve their stadium plans.

Gas and Bath City merger and a ground share with Bath Rugby would suddenly make a Twerton development look commercially attractive.

Watch this space.....

Truro must be in that world of pain too. I think their ‘derby’ this season is with WSM, must be a 300 mile round trip.

Not sure if still in the same league, but Truro vs Barrow must have been a real pain for the fans.

Travel a couple of hundred miles NE, then have to turn and do 30-40 miles SW again.

 

A game only worth doing if you decide to spend a whole weekend in Barrow

Yes I know, I have done it a few times myself and it's a heartbreaking journey even from here, I imagine it's what it must have been like getting to Cardiff or Swansea before the bridges were built.
