Yeah, not bad for the tin pots.

Back where they're more comfortable now.

But by August they'll be back in delusion mode thinking they'll walk the division. ;)

 

They have that delusion already

What type of crayon chewing window licker posts such absolute non sense?!? It is their refusal to ever accept the truth which makes them the utter laughing stock they truly are and in doing so rubbing the noses of a Crawley or a Harrogate on any other of the teams in League Two in not showing any respect to these teams.

A couple of wins and the sags are marching into the play offs, or they're bigger than Norwich or that they are a well supported team yet they can't even manage to sell out a 12,000 seater outdated rugby ground.

 

'One million strong'? They ain't even 10,000 strong!

Utter muppets

The bloke announcing the 10 most shocking signings program after motd said "Bristol Rovers fan here I'm making no comment" 

Yeah I heard that. A Sag shocking signing? I suppose he must be referring to the shocking sum they forked out for Andy Tillson, a "break the bank" signing from which they've never fully financially recovered...

Joey Barton is at Ashton Gate today taking notes from our second half performance!

That absolutely doesn't break Covid rules. None whatsoever. 

He's clearly there on business. Definitely.

I don’t know exactly what LJ said but I do know that the BBC amongst others ran with it. I thought he said that, as a club, we are capable of achieving that. In reality any Championship club with a billionaire owner can potentially do it if all the holes line up.

My point whenever some Sag brings it up is that LJs boss was/is incredibly ambitious and was already pumping 10s of millions of ££s into the stadium and playing staff. In that position you’d hardly say you’d want to tread water and just avoid relegation for the next 5 years.

Still, it’s not like thick sags to get things wrong is it? 🤣

They’re still wheeling out that “In 5 years no one will talk about Rovers” Lansdown myth.

In fairness to Wally, he too is pumping in 10s of pounds!  They're coming for us, don't you know?!?

Just been over to Gaschat for a bit of a browse.

Some of them (although admittedly not all), reckon they only need to build a 12,000 capacity stadium as that's all they could hope to get. A few of them have correctly pointed out you need to build for the future not the present - the lack of ambition from some of them is frightening - a few of them get it, that you need to build a stadium you almost struggle to host games in as the facilities are in such high demand, but for a lot of them....

They have also dragged up the LJ comment about 'Europe in 5 years' comment. Which, as a stand alone statement does sound pretty ridiculous, but if you remeber the context of it, it was made at one of those Radio Bristol sports forums (hosted at Ashton Gate) where Geoff asked the question of where the 3 managers saw their clubs in 5 years time. Lam talked about ongoing progression and developing players, Darryl Clarke said 'competing in the Championship' and LJ said something along the lines of 'Well, if Darryl is going to be fanciful, I'll say Europe'.

Hardly an LJ mission statement.

Almost (but don't quite) feel sorry for some of them, being held back due to a lack of ambition from within their ranks.

Think a 12,000 seater stadium will suit them fine. If they start getting big gates 🤣 then providing it has the land around it to be able to upgrade stands as they go they would be fine.

Any ground roverzzz build will need ample land around it, just to cater for all those locked out.

Here at Peterborough many people such as myself have moved here, but continue to support their home town team.

Arrived at work today and the boss, a Blackpool fan, pointed at me and declared "Bristol got relegated"! I rapidly informed him "That was the other lot".

7 years ago today they were invading the pitch at Wycombe Wanderers, shouting about someone’s granny going to bed, hugging each other, destroying advertising hoardings and announcing loudly that the world had to believe them that they were staying in the football league.

6 fifths of them would sadly be disappointed the following week as they plunged into oblivion and they ended up blaming Ted’s and punching horses.

then you get bits like this

'Clubs like Reading and Brighton along with Hull and Swansea are all historically smaller clubs than us imo.

We should be looking to emulate them all by getting to the Premier League, or at the very least Championship.'

 

who is he trying to kid,in comparison,they are like a drop of rats piss compared to those and as for the prem, flip me 'arriet,  does he mean the premiere non league league?? or does toolstation have a championship?

The problem with their fans is they live in some sort of deluded time warp -unfortunately for the sags we aren’t living in the mid 1990’s anymore and LONG gone are the days when Rovers could consider themselves even remotely the same size as Reading Hull or Brighton.
 

Times have moved on and whilst the rest of the footballing world have been improving their infrastructures the sags have stood still playing in a decrepit old Rugby stadium struggling to average over 7 k a week. League 2 is honestly their natural level.

It might be recommended that they concentrate their efforts on getting back to L1 1st....

Love to know their rating criteria for those clubs listed being 'historically smaller'.

The last time the delluded morons had a season average ABOVE 10K was over 40 years ago in 1976!

  • The last time Reading had an average BELOW 10K was 2000
  • The last time Swansea had an average BELOW 10K was 2005
  • The last time Brighton had average BELOW 10K was 2011
  • The last time Hull had an average BELOW 10K was 2002

So in most cases its been nearly 20 years of these clubs being bigger - so I'd argue that in every instance they have been left far behind and history means very little.

I'll acknowledge that in those previous 40 seasons there may have been cases that those clubs had lower attendances (especially when brighton were at a low ebb), but it's been a long time since that, and ALL of those clubs have far outperformed the gas attendance wise. How "historical" do they want to get?

The other conclusion of course could be that they are actually bigger, but their fans are just shit and fans of other clubs are far more loyal and actually turn up to watch their team play.

Agreed. Plus, if you REALLY want to go THAT far back, why not go just a bit further?

 

The Royal Engineers, by FAR the greatest team, the world has ever seen...

These absolute mongs never fail to amaze me 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

 

we averaged 26,000 one season in the 50’s in what now is the championship, and over 13,000 in 1973/74 promotion season, if you think small you will remain small, I’m 100% convinced, supply a ground on the level of Ashton Gate, fund the team accordingly and we’d be averaging over 20,000 a season I’m sure.

Whenever one of them says that the only reason we get higher crowds is because AG has better facilities, and claim they’d fill the Mem if it wasn’t a shithole, I love pointing out that their fans must be the most fickle, ‘part time’ fans on the Planet. 🤣

Seriously, what ‘real’ football fan says “Im going to turn my back on my club because they expect me to stand on a terrace”?

Or “I’m not going today because I want a nice comfy seat” 🤣

Fickle, part time ‘can’t be arsed’, passionless fanbase who deserve L2.
