Bristol Rovers Dustbin Thread

Recommended Posts

I only live about 2 miles from the mem. Should've gone tonight for a fiver. Even more of a laugh than following it on OTIB. in the Swindle corner of course.  Cummon, how much entertainment for a fiver. Would love to have heard the fans chants and reaction assuming you could hear the reaction of less than 1,500.

Slagchat in meltdown yet again thinking that L2 is beckoning for next season.

They are now s**t scared of what Scunny will do to them on Saturday.

Ideally the crowd would be zero.  One day we’ll end up back in that competition and the same people taking the piss will ask why those teams, and their supporters, didn’t have the guts to do something about it now.  I do wonder if some people enjoy taking the piss out of the Gas more than they enjoy football.

Hopefully, not inmy lifetime.

Nothing like mocking the real thing mate.  Worth more than a fiver for the hilarity. I paid more than that to see Dave Allen 30 years ago.

Rumred, I get your position, but withour this competition, I would have had a boring evening in front of the box instead of the dustbin thread comedy I have been treated to.  It is an embarassment to British football I know, but so are that team of numpties in yhe other quarter of the city (not really half of the city any more).  More of an embarassment to Bristol football.

Just wish I realised it was a fiver and thought to become a Swindle supporter for one day only.

Rumred is spot on. I don't know how others feel but the integrity of sport is more important to me than a cheap laugh at the blue few. Well done to their fans that boycotted the game. If this competition is a success then we could well be playing Stoke City B in a league game one day. This is what they are planning and it needs to be stopped.

We beat their A team (or most of it). I don't worry too much about beating their B team.  Look at the B team we put out against Watford.

Get your point though. This competition is a joke.  Just make it a L1 and L2 competitiin like it was.

The Carebo Cup is heading in a similar direction though.

Value of the Mem?  I understand that an arcre amounts to around 15 building plots, so assuming it is around 2 acres, it can't be worth more than £8m even before development costs.  I'm not sure what it would be worth for commercial property, but if a loan of £10m has been secured on it, what kind of valuation makes it worth that?

Deduct the cost of building 30 houses on it at say 150k per house, that reduces the land value to circa £4m.

We're making ourselves look like numpties by mocking their low attendance in this 'competition'.

In this case, the lower the attendance the better.

I would guess for residential development it would be £30k a plot so if you're correct with the sizing then 2 x 15 x £30k = £9m if selling to a developer so the £10m is about right IMO with another £1m for the white plastic chair mountain.

Think when they've been sizing it up for their super, mega-sized stadium (the one that has to be bigger than the Gate or they're not interested) they've been estimating about 4 acres. 

Weren't Sainsburys going to pay £18m, which everyone realised was well over the top?

Most recent estimates I've heard are about £12m at most.

Your rough calculations are very close I'd imagine, just add in the infrastructure costs such as internal roads and working on a site with such poor access

As for the Checkatrade, I admit I don't care what their attendance was and agree about devaluing the cup as I see it as "ours" given we've won it the most times (think at 3 we should have been given it for good!) 

But the result is definitely worth the hilarity - particularly that some on there are using the dislike for the Prem U21 changes as a reason why losing was ok.

It doesn't matter that it's a crap tournament now - you still put out one of your strongest side against a 4th division club (with 7 changes who played with 10 men for a large part) and lost! 

Even their manager admits something is wrong, and fair play to some of them realising they're screwed and that DC isn't probably the main cause, but money. 

They're even using us sticking with LJ as an example which might not go down well with the more rabid red haters!

That’s the point! People hate the competition and are letting people know it.

They should be applauded for that (not the result, that was hilarious) but can’t people get it into their heads that the low crowds are intentional?

It really isn’t difficult to understand.

 

Apologies if I’m coming across as a Gas sympathiser but if we take the piss out of the 1% where they don’t deserve it then it undervalues the 99% when they do.

They’d all turn up at Wembley though if they got there.

Just goes to show that it's not just the local press that failed to investigate the actual status of their owners, Garth Crooks suggesting that he could have bought "any club in the Premiership" is just laughable. I am sure that this forum had already identified that they were nowhere near that wealthy, but once again Wael seems happy to let the myth persist with his self deprecating reply.

And that's why we have so many flats - build up and you can build more. I can imagine on a plot of land that already has a stadium you would build up to at least the same height.

If I was a betting man, I'd bet they'll stick with him through the transfer window but give him nothing in the way of spending money. If the financial issues are true then they'll never sack him as that would involve a pretty hefty pay off so they'll be looking for him to walk.

Dc also pointed out in his interview that players would have to leave before he can bring new faces in.
Difficult times it seems?

I wonder how many clubs will be willing to pay a managers 5 years contract out - I really hope he has some one year compensation option or he has probably signed himself out of a move.

He has been pretty much hounded and abused for that thread. They claim he knows nothing, is lieing, guessing  etc which is all semantics as he obviously knew something had happened but was not 100% sure what, and asked whether anyone else had heard anything, when someone said yes he said he thought so, and has been hounded in the thread ever since.

Interesting at the start, where he makes it sound like he’s correcting Garth Crooks, when he claimed that he could have bought “ANY premier league club”. By using clever exclamation, he cannily disguised the fact that he was saying he “couldn’t have bought any other club”..!

He lapped it up, thinking it was a ready made club, with a stadium deal already sorted and pretty much funded. Look at all those smiles and jovial quips from him & Dopey. 

All feels a bit different on the prospects front now lads, eh..?!

Wael really love the limelight doesn't he. Parading around the pitch, shoulder rides down Glouc's road. Plus that little teasing answer to Garth Crooks 'you could have bought any club in the Prem' sneaky little smile and says , not any. Now people would have read that as, maybe not a top side in the Prem, what he meant was literally not ANY club in the Prem !
That is such lazy journalism , not to do the slightest background check, you expect it from the Fawning EP , but really.

I’ve been buying the Viz for years and nearly every month they do a spoof ‘Take a Break’ style gossip magazine article.

It always features some fictional, attention seeking bullshitter making outrageous claims about things they’ve got up to with celebrities in private or boasting about inside knowledge they’ve obtained by accident whilst unblocking Brad Pitt’s bog.

Henbury Gas and his computer shop is a bit like a real life version of that.

I would LOVE IT if the they introduced a “Football Focus Re-visited” feature and went back for more interviews today. 

“So Darrell, these players that you stuck with are out of all the Cups by the 2nd week in November, knocked out of 2 by lower league teams, and your inconsistent league form could land you in a relegation fight if you’ve lost control here. So, not going quite to plan ON the pitch, so, tell me how things are going on the new stadium front...?

oh sorry, I’m hearing I shouldn’t mention that..! 

Ok, so let’s look at other areas of investment that have been made since WAQ came to the club. I’ve got 2 mins left to broadcast, so if you can start with those impressively clean looking carpets over there... and hang on, those curtains weren’t there last time I was here...! 

Oh, Darrell, we are going to have to leave things there. It looks like someone is towing your car away...!”

That belter BradfordMyerBriggs is up to it again :

Everywhere you go when people ask if you are from Bristol and they ask who you support and you say Rovers they are always sound, but if you say you are a Ted then chances are they won't be very accommodating. Plenty of Gas about but they don't scream and shout about it like the 82ers.

Doesn't seem to realise we don't have to be embarrassed about who we support - we're in a good league and don't have a tent city for a ground... 

And I'd imagine they do pretend to be lovely and accommodating to Gasheads, while quietly motioning to the rest of the staff to bolt everything to the floor...

I know, it’s such a ridiculous thing they often come out with.

I remember seeing a post where one of them said they went into a shop (cant remember where, somewhere up North) and the staff asked where he was from...he said “Bristol” and they gasped in horror, then he said “no it’s ok...I’m a Gashead” and they breathed a sigh of relief :rofl2br:

******* dumbos. I swear they believe the shit they spout.

What they don’t ever seem to take into account when reciting stories of people they’ve met who apparently hate City is human nature. If I meet a Sheffield Utd fan, I’m likely to just go along with whatever they say about Wednesday...not tell them the truth that I couldn’t give a monkeys toss about either Sheffield club and find both sets of fans as arrogant as each other.

Either that or people just feel sorry for them.

We averaged about 1400 away that season. Higher than they’ve ever averaged.
