Also, just a reminder that whilst the Sags season has been totally horrendous absolutely NONE of it is Jailbird Joey's fault...😳

I bet it would have been down to him if they`d eased away from the bottom and finished comfortably mid table after he joined.

I'm struggling with my thoughts at the moment. I really feel that the best thing for football in this city, would be for them to disappear completely. Then they could be added to the list of things Bristol had and lost. I can't stand the club and the way it's portrayed in the BRFC friendly local media.

They have done nothing to deserve what they think they deserve, as in someone else building a stadium for them and they have been an embarrassment to our city with their move away to Bath while blaming our city for all their ill fortune when in reality, they have nobody but themselves and their directors who've bled them dry, to blame. Pathological liars.

We know how they tried to steal Ashton Gate from us while claiming we were the immoral ones and, how they succeeded in stealing the rugby ground. I have to admit that I feel the pain for their decent supporters but, I'd have felt even more pain personally if they weren't here providing that little bit of comfort watching their demise, during what must rank as one of our worst ever seasons. So I'm grateful for that little contribution from the dark side to ease my mental state.

So for the moment I'm glad they're here but, in the future they can **** right off and sink into oblivion.

'HMS PissTheLeague' is adrift, and the current Cap'n has done his absolute best to deliver on his pledge to get those tw4ts out of League 1.

 

Now Gash, go **** yourselves 👇

More like HMS pissed the bed

Hindsight is wonderful.

We’ve had a terrible season, Max Ehmer on paper was a good signing at this level but for some reason just didn’t work out. Could say exactly the same for a few others; Westbrooke, Oztumer, Nicholson. Garner seemed to take all our experience and and push them out the door. We went into the season with a very inexperienced strike force and Tisdale didn’t change that when he came in. 

The loss of JCH was always going to be huge but it’s as if we made zero effort to try to replace him. I’m not asking for another striker like him, but 2 or 3 who can chip in and maybe score 30 between them.

McCormick on loan from Chelsea has been brilliant and it’s rumoured he’s off to Millwall next season, wish him all the best.

I want to say had Jaakola been fit all season we’d have put up more of a fight. He’s a quality keeper at this level but even if he had we were so poor everywhere else I really don’t think it would have mattered.

As for managers, IMO our best chance of staying up was under Garner and that speaks for itself. I’m actually disgusted with the way Barton has come in and handled pretty much everything. Wael has backed him publicly and I like Wael, you can see he wants to do right by the football club but it’s just not happening for him. 
 

Regardless we deserved what we got this season. The joys of supporting a club not in the top 6 is that this is football. We take the real bad times and still support our club. I know Rovers are shit. I’ve been paying to sit  on the sofa all year watching us lose to pretty much everyone. I’ve hated pretty much every minute of it but come the new season I’ll either be there in person or watching on iFollow again.

Anyway, enjoy the summer lads. We’re all England now aren’t we?

Some good lad from the blue half that follow England

Agree, I think your best chance of staying up this season would have been to stick with Ben Garner. a) it was his team so the players were more likely to respond to the guy who signed them, rather than managers who consistently told them they weren't good enough b) When he was sacked, you were clear of the relegation zone despite having played several of the better teams in the league in the early fixtures. The buck has to stop at the top though, Wael has made several catastrophic decisions which has led to this relegation and it was entirely self inflicted, so blame ultimately has to lie with him. Same with Lansdown here, they both put too much trust in those below them and should have been a lot more hands-on.

Bristol football really has been a total shambles this season and it's just not good enough for a city of this size, especially when you see how what the rugby club has achieved.

3 wins in 18 games
0.61ppg
5 games in a row without scoring a goal
Took a team in 18th to 24th

Tisdale was on a PPG of 0.95 which means had they stuck with him they would have scored 6 more points which would have been enough to........

Finish in 23, one point above Swindle.

Well it's something 🤣🤣🤣🤣

There have been some unfortunate insulting exchanges today, especially on the 'Pearson post-match interview' thread, the usual attacking the poster rather than the post etc., but at least, for the most part, there was also some supporting dialogue accompanying the insults.

One unsavoury, single word insult was directed to our friend @RalphMilnesLeftFoot, somewhat ironic in its terminology, and I am sure she will be amused to see our old computer friend 'Excel' himself, pun totally intended, with his contribution to today's Rovers match thread.

Why is the Post's coffin different from the original?1_TCR_BRI_090521CoffinBRI.jpgFiWJwxx.jpg

 

or shall we just make up s**t (the Post, not OTIB of course!)

So this bloke is a hero ?    ......."one BRAVE chap....."        So it's brave to vandalize someone's work is it?    I don't remember them using those words when something like a Banksy is defaced !        And,from where do they get this "half" of Bristol ?  Utter rag .

It’s all they’ve got left.  

39 years on, their badge should have an elephant on it.

If all the gas heads can constantly throw at us is something that happened nearly 40 years ago in 1982, long before many city fans were born (but I guess the blue half havent many fans born since then) it just shows what a pitifull existence they have had since.
