From The Times “Game in Numbers - Red Cards”
 

Later in 1997 the third tier produced another game of five red cards: Bristol Rovers’ David Pritchard was sent off in first-half stoppage time for a second booking, and a fight while awaiting the resulting free kick led to the dismissals of his team-mates Jason Perry and Andy Tillson, along with Wigan’s Graeme Jones (watched by his Wigan colleague and future Belgium managerial partner Roberto Martinez). Rovers’ Josh Low was sent off in the second half for a second yellow card.

 

Another shameful episode in the history of the “Family Club”

I recall at the time sad Gastard Kevin Greening co-presented the Radio 1 breakfast show and every midweek morning after they had played he would play a snippet of Gobs***e Irene and talk about how they’d got on the previous night.

Day after this debacle he was sobbing “The Gas got four…sent off!”

And yes, I appreciate there was zero excuse for listening to Radio 1 even 25 years ago, with or without the Gash propaganda.

Rest assured I’ve been doing penance every since and will continue to do so for many a kalpa to atone for this.

He’s clearly not well & when you add in some sort of Messiah complex, it isn’t a good mix.

Over on Gaschat a fair few are unsurprisingly losing their shit over this.

The pathetic attempt to try & pretend he knows their history with the Geoff Bradford stuff is cringe, too.

I wonder how the Post bloke (Sam Frost?) is able to continue to report this weirdness without comment.

To be fair im not religious, but i have to say God has played a blinder in sending Joey to the Mem. The omnipotent one is a Red🙏 🤣

Barton is a proper nutter, and frankly i dont think there is a better match for comedy value. 

I hope he is able to keep practicing his faith from the prison chapel. It would be a gross breach of his human rights else…

"It's the sound of the crowd" !??

They're havin' a laugh.

What crowd?

Probably the usual 10,000 locked outside.

 

NO NO NO, Its the sound of A crowd piped over their P.A. System

He has confirmed he is doing the job for nothing - Sorry but the bloke has lost the plot...

I get the Gasheads are downtrodden and when I look at the 138-year history since 1883, they have not had a load of success and I can understand they are feeling down-beaten and in the doldrums. 

Rovers’ best ever position was sixth position in Division Two in 1955. My worst ever finish as a player was fifth position in Division Two, so on a bad day the mountains I have scaled as a player are higher than any mountain that has ever been scaled by Bristol Rovers as an organisation.

Not joking, I genuinely had to check it was real after I’d read it first time.

Jeez, thank you Dad for taking me to see City when I was a nipper. Imagine how life could’ve turned out

He’s taking the piss out of them 

It has to be that surely. No-one could seriously spout this bollocks and really believe it could they? What`s next - starting Bartontown somewhere on Salisbury Plain and inviting g*sheads to join him there in waiting for the apocalypse?
