Bristol Rovers Dustbin Thread

This makes for a decent read. One of theirs has it spot on, 'protesting because City are near the Prem'! 

http://gaschat.co.uk/thread/11269/mk-dons-brfc-crossroad

They won't get a Stadium MK, probably not even the hockey stadium Mk used to play in as THEY COST MONEY!

At least some on there realise it's not just about the seats and capacity, moreso the additional revenue streams MK (and us now) have which is probably what made the UWE a crap deal for them. Without the non matchday stuff, having the UWE would have made next to no difference to their revenues apart from having a shiny stadium, just to play in while UWE reaped the benefits.

I didn't think there was place for reasoned logic on their forum.

Anything that suggests we might, possibly, be doing okay seems to result in the poster being called a Ted before they then get banned.

For me Bristol rovers are at a crossraod, one way will either allow us to progress to a sustainable club, or the other to our eventual extinction. I say this because we are, as much as people hate to admit it massively effected by our friends across the river. I talk in terms of future potential generations of fans. At the moment we are tinpot...yes I said it, but we do offset that by only being one league behind, plus if we had plans to build a new stadium, regardless of our league position we would capture the hearts of Bristol’s youth by having the underdog appeal. If we were in the championship but still at the Mem we would match their level thus also attracting future fans. Even if they got promoted to the prem and we stayed in league 1 but still had the prospect of a new state of the art ground, we would still recruit support. 

Personally can't think of many youngsters attracted by the underdog appeal, they want to support winners, hence the Barca and Manchester shirts that proliferate. 

Also he seems to be stuck in the idea that kids only turn up for the football, the idea that they would choose to go to a ground with no facilities, over the gate is laughable.

Maybe he hasn't seen it and has no idea how far ahead we are in standards?

As for matching our level at the Mem? Yeah, right, of course they would! :facepalm:

from our mate henbury

Remind me how long it took Brighton to get their new stadium..

All aspects of planning permissions and applications there of take a little thing called....... TIME

it has only being a few weeks since the UWE project was dropped and you expect results by now

The club have been active in the background  seeking opinion from both our Mayor of Bristol and the locals near the stadium. All this information plus loads of other stuff like Traffic plans etc need to resolved before a coherent plan can be put before the council


So its a case of Wait and see at the moment 

Rovers have been waiting for a new ground since 1986 or 31 years,

Essentially, £93M helped. There's the difference in a proper football club and the methane snorters up the road! They seem to have overlooked the financial aspect.

We have a fantastic core support, it is the one thing we have which the S*** despise. Without our support there is no BRFC. I must admit when Waq & Nani rolled into town I thought the future would be rosy; unfortunately, what they meant by "slow evolution" is they would buy the club and its debt and then moth ball it until they can move it on at a profit, based on possible potential.

Personally, there are many things about the gas that I despise but their support pales into insignificance compared to ours so it's irrelevant! Even Sky said on the tele, during the 'Boro match (I watched it again, how sad am I), that our support is loud so why would we be jealous of 7,000 people getting wet watching hoofball on a quagmire, in a sh1t stadium when we regularly have over 20,000 enjoying Championship football, on a bowling green, in luxury? :dunno:

Goodbye to the old Tote End

There's no money left to spend

The UWE isn't happening anymore

 

Irene time for you to die

See Gas Scum now the end is nigh

Sheikh Hani doesn't want you anymore 

It's Over

 

It's time for the blue few

To drop into League Two

But oh what will you do

When Wael say's to you

That Clarke is through, we're in the poo, the poo

It's Over

It's Over

It's Over

 

No more highlights shown on Sky

When you kiss the league goodbye 

You won't be "coming for us" anymore 

 

Administration comes to call

Al-Qadi's left you with sod all

They sold your ground for houses after all 

It's Over, It's Over, It's Over,

Where was their fantastic hard core at the last game at the dog track?

His dad should have had a five knuckle shuffle.

Assume it's something to do with our Swedish contingent, very impressive indeed.

PS: I've run out of likes again. Anyone else having this problem all of a sudden?

Yet that stadium obviously appeals to some. Remember when England was bidding to host the World Cup? MK was placed in the South West group of grounds that would be considered as match venues. At a guess IF England had bribed more, sorry had been selected to host the World Cup, MK being in the South West would have been preferred to AG (perhaps cuz it's closer to London)

This may be true, but the only time I've been there I was with 5,000 others, so the atmosphere was OK. 
Plus , although we did stand the whole game , at my age I appreciate the availability of a comfy seat now and then #ooo,paddedseats,nice!

Yeah, but.... um.... they take more away than us and, um..... if they had a 40,000 seater stadium they’d fill it regularly. 

We’ve only had better crowds than them recently. You know, over the last 50 years or so..!

All apart from about 11 seasons, and then their bigger attendances were only by relatively small margins.

That’s bollocks actually, I despise nearly everything about their club not just their 5000 or so ‘die hards’.

Weird one, but am I imagining a large Swedish flag with "Ikea took the Tote End" on it that used to do the rounds? If not I need to get it made!

There is/was a flag/banner with ‘Ikea took the Tote End’...can’t remember whether it was a Swedish Flag or just on a plain background.
