I quite agree.  It was just an off the cuff comment in response to the original poster, as he was talking out of his arse by suggesting that £6k home fans was a ridiculous figure for a league two game.

Fair enough.

Although I don’t believe he was saying that 6k is ridiculous for L2...more like 6k is ridiculous for a club who’s fans (not all, but a seemingly large %) claim to have a ‘massive’ and ‘loyal’ fanbase when, in reality, Rovers fans are no better than anyone else.

We often post examples straight from Slagchat of some throbber or another claiming that Rovers are too big for the Mem or too big for L2, “travelling support the envy of many clubs” bollocks so you know the type of Gashead we’re taking aim at when it comes to sarcastic remarks on here.

In fairness to you, you never come out with stuff like that (not seriously anyway).

Then you are very much in a minority. The majority of Gasheads are totally deluded when it comes to supporting the blue quarter(s) of Bristol.

Faithful and True. Massive fan base. Big fish in a small pond. Take 40k (26k in actual figures) to Wembley.

Massive away following - the envy of many clubs (all of which LOVE ROVERS and HATE THE SHIT by the way!)

Most believe their 'perceived' massive fan base means that they are a big club who deserve to be in the Championship and at least one place higher than DA SHIT!

Oh....and your comment about remembering the 1970's....Well, you are definitely a true Gashead then. You couldn't be a proper Gashead if you didn't reminisce about the Tote End, Smash 'n' Grab, Paul Randall and the famous bore fest penalty shoot out lottery win over Sheffield United in the Watney Cup. Being stuck somewhere between 1972-1978 in terms of memory defines your average Gashead.....with splashing of 2nd May and a bit of 1982. 🤣

 

This.
I find that the fiercest hand relief of the average gas head  is reserved for their tremendous and unrivalled away support. They genuinely do believe that it’s that good! The other day there was a gas head having a pop by saying we only average 400 more than them away from home the season before last 😂😂😂.

I just googled the gig and on some ticket sites it is not clear that it’s the cast from the West End musical.  I thought until I saw your post that is was Queen with Brian May etc.  A second rate concert in a third rate stadium , sure to be a sell out.

This could be comedy gold if people think they are going to see Brian May, there would be multiple complaints and would make headlines.

A bit like the Lapland New Forest fiasco about 10 years ago, fits right in with the state of the Mem, (coming to think of it that maybe that is where Rovers got Santas Grotto from)?

I'm not responsible for, or necessarily in agreement with, everything which is said or done by my fellow supporters.  I've always tried to be honest when commenting on things which have happened at the club, be they good or bad.  @Bar BS3seems to have a bit of personal vendetta, unfortunately without any wit to make it entertaining.

I totally get that it seems a bit odd that I post on here, although, for me, it's largely been a positive experience.

I must be honest and say that I am not sure why the posts about various Gashead delusions are being aimed at you. 

There have been several different posters from the other side, that have posted here  one or two seem a bit silly, but you are one of the ones that contributes well and doesn't deserve to be castigated.

I like to get honest views In The Net and like your posts. You’ll always get supporters from both clubs who are not so friendly, but that’s football. Keep posting mate.

Your opinions are valued by the majority on here, ITN, just as other sensible fans from many other clubs are.

Can you go and find Miah Dennehy though, and bring him back ?

On holiday in Devon, should I take the opportunity to watch Exeter play Rovers tomorrow?

I think I might go, still trying to catch up on all the lost live football so it’s either Torquay or Exeter. 
I think it’ll be Exeter especially now Owura Edwards has gone on loan there.

Because my posts (to you on this thread) are an easy target, doesn't make me witless. 

Ignoring the stated facts and glossing over them, however, does make you a typical Rovers fan.

Yes it is very odd, the amount of time you frequent your rivals forum... Don't bitch about receiving a few awkward realities or a bit of stick. 

I honestly couldn't give a toss about your interpretation of my replies, but don't play the victim cars when I think I've been pretty reason with my criticism of your (tinpot) club.

Considering how famous they claim their quarters to be. The didn’t even make it onto this list - https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=4732385880122975&id=121452464549696&anchor_composer=false

They weren’t even the first few comments until one sag piped up 🤣

Looks like ‘Da famous quarterz’ aren’t anywhere near as recognised as they think.

Love the fact that one Gashead posted a picture of their Fred West flag as well....now Facebook users around the Planet will know what ******* sinister wrong uns they are.
