Bristol Rovers Dustbin Thread

I feel a little sorry for that Henbury Gas. He’s obviously mentally ill. It’s probably due to him wiping dodgy hard drives from his Rovers mates all day sending him loopy. 

Sounds like he’s creating diversions, because if he had his own hard drive checked he’d be in trouble! (Allegedly)

Looking at one of his posts on their site, he seems to imply he’s been to AG to fix our computers

Surely BS have our own IT team and if we didn’t would we get some two bit shop from the other side of town to come and fix it?

Wonder if he’s secretly been down seeing how things are on the other side?

I see Henbury plum is at it again. 

Some joker posted on facebook that they would sell their City v Man Utd ticket for £1,000,000 (that's ONE MILLION POUNDS) and numbnuts started a thread criticising City fans saying they would never do that as they're 'faithful and true' (unless they're playing sh1t when they don't bother). He fell for a blatant wind up! Thick prat.

Is the guy ill or just very, very stupid to be that gullible? I understand delusion but this is off the scale IMHO. Pillock! 

Ha, that’s brilliant. :rofl2br:

He named the thread. They are at it again .

At what again. It was obviously a wind up which has been pointed out to the pathological liar . Saying rovers fans wouldn’t do it . But the immediate reply to him said rovers fans have done it . He really is a ***** 

Would that be the same rovers fans that were selling their season ticket booklets and getting duplicates from the club..?

That thread is hilarious from start to finish, with somebody misreading a million for a grand down to our old chum Weezord mis-spelling delete and getting corrected.

The fact they can't add up is hilarious, somebody somewhere is looking into the BRFC current account and thinking 'is that £300,000 or £3,000,000?'..i'm not sure. Presumably their only abacus doesn't have enough beads on it to count up the zeroes after the red ones were taken off....

Let's get this deleted. Don't want Ted sh** on here. They'll only obsess about us even more on their obsessed with Rovers thread or whatever they call it? The only interest I have in the Teds is watching God Dean Windass scoring against them. Apart from that they can carry on kissing the midgets ass that they all wanted sacked last year. 82 shithead lady gardens

Yes, how embarrassing for us....losing 1-0 in a Championship Play Off Final. It could be worse, imagine how humiliating it would be to get relegated from the entire Football League after losing 1-0 at home against a team wearing your kit....7 days after going off in your pants whilst celebrating staying up. :laughcont:

Thank God I'm a City fan.

Unable to open the link.

If it is as funny as some have indicated, any chance of a screen shot?

It’s a video. Basically is using the Sky Q device. 

Saying a variety of teams, Accrington Stanley, Cheltenham town, Exeter City, Swindon, us and the sky system presents a variety of viewing options, then when it’s clearly said, and recognised “Bristol Rovers” it says they can’t find any results and suggests looking at “drama on tonight” 

Doesnt sound funny, but it is..!

The bloke is so full of shit it’s unreal. The club have used Solsoft for many years now as I’ve dealt with them when doing stuff for the Bristol Sport websites/DNS when they were hosted at Clik. 

Even the front page of their website states they are preferred IT supplier for Bristol Sport - http://www.solsoft.co.uk/

So to clarify. Who is the preferred IT supplier for Bristol Sport. 

Is it solsoft, Henbury Gas fictitious enterprises or some random, legitimate company?

Anybody see in the national news today that the blue few were one, of a small number of football clubs, that couldn’t muster enough cash to pay their employees the minimum wage (probably the footballing staff to be honest). Times really are hard!!! No wonder they can’t afford a stadium rebuild if they are struggling to scrape together £7.50. Definitely the gift that keeps on giving; they are a professional outfit, yea?!

Tsk tsk tsk.

Imagine being brave enough to pull on those "prowed quarters" every week, lose heavily to a team and get abuse from "the best fans in the world" for less than minimum wage...

At the risk of sounding like I am defending the gas here, a lot of these businesses have fallen foul of the changes in calculating basic pay. Either because their payroll systems can't calculate it correctly, or because it has been configured incorrectly. One of the Companies on this list uses the payroll software I train on and they decided they could set it up instead of paying for us to help them, I know which would have been cheaper.

Just about to post the same - and there have also been new rules re holiday pay, cost of working, and as you say payroll and leap years can cause big problems. It is a lot easier to fall foul of these rules than someone would think. 

I must be honest, reading the thread (lightly) about programme sellers and half time draw sellers needing to buy a United ticket, one of my first thoughts was 'I hope the club have got advice on whether that is a deduction from salary for minimum wage'.  If they haven't, and it is, our name could be on that list and that could have been an unforeseen one-off. Detail of the error is really needed to judge them in my opinion.

However, the vast majority of companies will make the necessary adjustments once your scenario comes to light.....unfortunately others will not as it’s more likely they were looking to reduce costs by indirectly paying below minimum wage.

True, but I think it's more likely that most of the Companies are being fined for historical issues and are unlikely to be deliberately flouting the law. 

In the case I was quoting though, the company thought they could manage without an HR dept or properly trained payroll staff!

Yes, but HMRC are very publicly auditing minimum wage now - for a lot these will be historic issues they probably had no idea existed and needed to correct. This is something even John Lewis managed to balls up and get a huge bill for - and they are renowned for being pretty good to their employees/partners.

Let's be honest here, this place would be a vast improvement on any place the gas have managed to squat in, also they would have the advantage of it being fire proof, mind you saying that, with their history of attacking four legged animals I would keep the camels out of sight.

An interesting article in "Private Eye" this week about dodgy football club owners.  The final paragraph reads:

"All the more reason to exercise scepticism about would-be club owners from faraway places with strange sounding names offering to finance fans' dreams."

Look at 29AR's post, there are lots of variables that come into play and often it comes down to poor recording of actual time spent at work, things like "expected to stay until a task is completed" or other similar situations. It can be hard for large organisations to monitor what is happening at branch level or in some departments in are like a football club. Then there is the subject of what is considered "Normal Pay" which is used in lot of calculations including NMW.  

That's enough now, I do enough of this at work without boring everyone on this forum too. :)

Nothing they say surprises me . From top to bottom the bitterness and jealousy courses through their veins. They are so far behind us on and off the pitch. And they hate it . Growing up in the 80s and 90s the rivalry was brilliant. But we moved on but they are still stuck there. They are insignificant to us . And I can’t see it changing. If anything Bristol Rovers won’t exist in 5 years. Fingers crossed . **** um . Oh and pay the going rate you drybreads
