Basement Rovers dustbin thread

They do this shit every year, don’t they?

Some load of bulk signings (4 today) that no one has ever heard of pretty soon after the previous season ends, their fans start up the “we’re going places” stuff (you are, Sutton United) & some of our more intellectually challenged pipe up with “why haven’t we signed anyone”?

Went well last year, didn’t it?

Looked into Sam Finley background - Rovers are his 8th Club (including loans) at the age of 28

Played for giants like - Southport, Warrington, AFC Fylde, The New Saints (<---watch the saggies roll out "Champions League experience" there, conveiniently failing to acknowledge it was probably in a complete spanking on aggregrate in the first qualifying round!)

The wikipedia article on him makes no mention of a transfer fee (at any time) just lots of "released" and "free transfer"

Oh and I found this - not the most reliable source, but from wikipedia:

In April 2020, Finley picked up an 8 match ban as a result of an investigation around a comment made to Rochdale's former Irish international Paul McShane, during a League One fixture on New Year's day 2020, regarding McShane's nationality.

Never heard of him, so did a quick Google - hardly a stellar career by the look of it.

Bit then again when you're fishing in the type of ponds the Sags are beggars can't be choosers. 

Is this the type of signing that'll start all that "coming for you" gumph again?

Tossers...

All free transfers - surely not the sort of thing the 6th richest club in the world do?

Maybe Wally has spent all his money on the Stadium opening in August 🤣

People said that last year too

Tbf to the sags, I usually check their players based on forums of other clubs, from what I can remember the initial reactions from fans for their signings last season, in comparison to how they ended up playing, based on one or two sag mates was the following:

Grant: Meh, better in midfield than defence. Seemed to fulfill that, couple shockers but generally just fine.

Baldwin: Sunderland fans hated him basically, very error-prone, fulfilled that at the sags

Ehmer: Rated highly by Gillingham fans, awful at the sags, lost his place in the team after being made captain (says a lot given how shite they were)

Nicholson: Generally unknown. From all accounts the sags' best player last season.

Ayunga: Goal record said it all beforehand and was apparently ass, which is to be expected when you sign a player who only 2 years beforehand scored something like 1 in 4 in the Conference.

Westbrooke: Rated by Coventry, underperformed at Rovers but got better apparently

Tutonda: Rated by Barnet, did well first couple games then Tisdale came in and basically never played again.

Hanlan: Gillingham fans laughed their heads off, was awful apparently, and all my gas mates said he started off okay at best and then scored like 1 in his last 30 :laugh:

Williams: Fine and played fine

McCormick: Unknown, one of their best players it seems

Oztumer: Rated by Walsall but not rated whatsoever by Bolton, played awfully

 

Initial thoughts from fans of previous clubs on these 4 seem to be:

Coutts: Rated highly

Hughes: Rated highly but old

Finley: Rated highly but very hot-headed

Can't even remember and can't be bothered to look up the last one's name, but he started last season captain at Carlisle and ended it backup to a 20 year old. Apparently he's dog. The one to look out for, the rest seem fine. Coutts is a decent signing in particular.

Looks like Barton 67854 is getting his players in early. Wonder what the rush is?

This bit in the Evening Post quoted by Barton on the signings made me chuckle "We want people that aren’t going to be freaked out by some of the away grounds in the division"

 

What about the shit hole that they are going to play in  every other week........haha

Surprised they haven't all decided to cancel Sky Sports as both City and The Bears use it to advertise.

Do we? I’ve obviously missed that - what ad have we placed on Sky for Bristol City? Have you got a link? Cheers ...

“Unlucky da shit” ... so, The Fruit Market Stadium must be opening soon, according to Wael’s original timeline - how’s it looking? Has anyone been past there recently? It must be pretty much finished because there’s no way ‘such a nice man’ would lie to their fans ... is there?!😳🍷
