Basement Rovers dustbin thread

Recommended Posts

My favourite bit of justifying the defeat was the one that said Hartlepool had won 17 of their last 19 home games, conveniently forgetting to mention they have been non league for the past 4 years, so have only actually played 3 league teams in that time.

How low do they want to set that bar? We’ve played teams with their own goalposts & who managed to have the full set of substitutes, so no wonder we struggle.

Pitiful outfit, just fold.

Just when you think they have enough whoppers already, along comes another one. Pitiful.

Oh Jesus Christ. 

7 points from 7 games. They’re 21st in the very bottom professional league. And what is the bloke talking about in his post defeat interview… yep, you’ve guessed it…

Promotion. 

Remarkable. 

Yes but to quote one of them yesterday "if we won we'd be one point outside the play offs"

I see that he has stopped his customary "We will definitely get promoted 100% mantra" after a defeat.

He really is the Donald Trump of League 2; believing in his greatness; above and beyond all others.

So far their two league wins, have been both narrow 1-0 home wins against arguably two of the worse teams in the league; and even those results could have easily gone the other way.

Wait until they play the likes of Forest Green, Harrogate, Orient, Rochdale, Bradford etc. They are really going to struggle.

They won't go down of course. There are teams in L2 that are even more of a car crash (Oldham springs to mind). But Barton is completely deluded if he thinks that they are going up.

And then What?

Replace 15 players, with another 15 players??? You're not going to build a team employing 36 & 37 year olds on 1 year contracts are you? It's just all really bizarre in the extreme.

New post on their forum called "our supporters are becoming a laughing stock" from one of their better posters I will admit.

But surely they are already a laughing stock? I mean we jest about Sir Colin Daniel who sent them into non league but didn't they invite Dean Windass to some sort of event? They are a league 2 club with a national south Division stadium, the whole boycotting Sainsbury's because of the mem thing honestly the list could go on.

And it takes about six posts to descend into an `I`m a bigger fan than you` bitchfest. Hilarious.

A new poster has also started a Barton out thread and within about five posts our old friend Henbury S*g has accused him of being a gurt sheed.

It has now been pointed out to him by others that this is unlikely as the last thing City fans want is Barton sacked!

Absolutely and as it stands the current Rovers manager has  appointnents in court for not one but two charges of violence.

Not to make light of alleged violence against his wife which if true, is just beyond the pale but the reputational damage could be disastrous. Entirely self-inflicted too, they took on someone with 2 prior convictions for violence as manager. 

Just a huge stain on the city of Bristol whichever way you look at it.

and the funniest thing about that thread is that the OP is praising the team for only conceding 1 at Hartlepool! Imagine how far you have to fall and lower your expectations to consider that losing 1-0 at Hartlepool, just returned from Non-League, is a good result.

No offence to Hartlepool intended of course. Obviously it was their cup-final to have the privilege of even playing such a massive and famous club as Bristol Rovers and they must have raised their game faced with the overwhelming atmosphere generated by the 300-odd away supporters!

I just don't get the sense of entitlement their supporters have. They seem to think they are somehow "special". I think most City fans wouldn't think we're anything special, just an under achieving team, from a big city with reasonably loyal supporters, which has achieved the square root of f. all in 120 odd years. And for the vast majority of that time they've played second fiddle to City. So I can kind of understand the bitterness but not the 'us supporters deserve so much better" thing.

But, but they took three times as many as the stadium actually holds to Wembly.............................................................

Bit of an exaggeration saying that all 300 are odd 🤔

 

250 maybe?

Good stuff mate ,glad you enjoyed the day and found plenty of positives in the game and in the 'away' experience in general, well done to you and the other 340 folk for making the effort.

 

This is how it starts! If this thread rolls on for another couple of pages, expect their support at Hartlepool to edge over the thousand mark!

Presumably he is including the 26 members of the squad and the coaching staff? :)

It is not the responsibility for the Barton out gang to come up with a decent replacement. It ain't our job. We as fans can only comment and debate about them. I am not keen on Sol Campbell either but I would take him in a heartbeat over JB. I actually think taking Brian Tinnion and Scott Murray as a team to sort us out would do better than JB and be less divisive too than JB. Ok, ok, I went too far there but that is how low down I rate JB's managerial ability and chances to turn things around.
