If Paul Tisdale had come in and said:

Previous Manager would have been struck off if he was a Doctor

Medical Staff all getting bombed out at the end of the season

Players not even trained properly

I have a load of unprofessional, tobacco chewing cluckers in my squad (although I might smoke a nice fat Cuban later and stub it out in an U23 player's eyes)

I have single figures players worth keeping

I can't turn water into wine

It would have been easier on myself if I never took this job

etc etc.

he would have been destroyed by the Tent Polers. Instead, because it's Joey Barton saying it, this is exactly what has been needed apparently. The interesting thing for me is what Wally does if Barton goes down for say 9 months in the Summer, relatively short term but slightly too long ideally to bring in a Temporary Manager (bear in mind no time off for good behaviour on sentences under a year).

Funnily enough, Tisdale got sacked for saying he couldn’t pull a rabbit out of a hat in regards to making their strikers better. 
 

Barton has gone in with the big I am despite achieving nothing as a manager, and tbh nothing as a player as well. The ego on him is unreal. He’s gonna really struggle to get another job off the back of this.

What I find odd is that on GasChat not one person is calling out Wael.  As they say, the fish rots from the head, and although he’s chucked some money into pay debts and buy a “training ground” the culture at Rovers from top to bottom is clearly a mess and culture stems from the leaders of your organisation.  Players being unprofessional, managers being unprofessional, terrible stadium, terrible recruitment, they are an utter utter shambles.  What a shame 😂

Indeed. Take Barton's mouth and persona away and what are you left with? 

He's living off his celebrity status there, and absolutely nothing else. 

If he was "Joe Bloggs", an up and coming coach, plucked from some outpost, the sags wouldn't tolerate another minute of him. But because he gives them more profile than they've had in decades, he can stay.

Remarkably, he did get one England cap.

It's because he mentions their "incredible fanbase" that's all he needs to do in their eyes.

No guns. Just fists. And horses.

Barton words about "double figures" players chewing the baccy. What does that mean?

Sorry if I've missed it explained but off to work soon.

Anyone got an inkling as to what "double figures" means in his statement? 

Those that have put on a lot of weight during lock down? 

Those with an IQ higher than 9?

Those can can count to ten on the fingers of one hand? 

Those that can actually count to ten? 

What does it mean?

By my maths haven’t we now guaranteed ourselves another 800 odd days above them?

I know how much you’ve been enjoying the last couple of weeks, Fordy, but you might be getting a bit carried away there!

We could be in the same league in August next year. Our alphabetic superiority might buy us an extra 7 days. But not 800😁

On balance though, the chances of that happening must be less than those of us starting 22-23 four divisions apart 🤞🤞

My god, he questions how some of their players even made it professional. Incredible.

 

Very harsh words aired publically. But ultimately is he wrong with those opinions? 

Basically he is saying that some of the players are lucky to be paid for playing football. I can’t disagree with that personally.

Remind me what time is "having a laugh" on radio Bristol tomorrow? Can't say I've ever listened but might well do with a nice bottle of RED!

Don't worry. You can always "listen again".

Here are some highlights from the Bristol Post piece last July looking forward to the current season for The Gas. They are the gift that keeps on giving - every comment is a gem!:  

"Gasheads have been steadily more impressed with Rovers' summer business so far, with the new signings, a new training ground and Wael Al Qadi's commitment to the club all building hopes of a positive season ahead. See how Bristol Rovers fans reacted below:"

Alfie Rendall: Announce promotion.

Charlie: Very good squad being built.

James: EIEIEIO up the football league we go.

Daniel Sheppard: Going to be boring winning every game this season. ... Real intent this year.

Jay Bear Jones: So three signing in three days all quality players, what has happened to rag bag Rovers?

Caz: Promotion 2021, scream it at the top of your lungs baby.

Kevin Ward:  Blimey, Will next season be the one we start going places?

Be great if someone could phone in and start by saying "What can I say Geoff? I've had three divorces"
