At the risk of sounding like I am defending the gas here, a lot of these businesses have fallen foul of the changes in calculating basic pay. Either because their payroll systems can't calculate it correctly, or because it has been configured incorrectly. One of the Companies on this list uses the payroll software I train on and they decided they could set it up instead of paying for us to help them, I know which would have been cheaper. 

Maybe, but at least those other companies, even Sports Direct, have the good grace to put their hands up and apologise. All we've had from the gas is a 'no comment'. 

I want to know whether this is their stadium staff being underpaid, or their central defenders?

Sports Direct and especially their owner are very good at apologising aren't they? A cynical man might say they should look to putting things right in the first place.

August- Bristol Rovers face the stark realisation that their billionaire owner isn’t actually as rich as Steve Lansdown. In fact, he’s probably not even as rich as some of the people stood on the Blackthorn End terrace with him..!

Still banging on about our financial difficulties 35 years ago. 

Brave....

If I was a Gashead I’d be more concerned about the financial situation at Rovers right now. Detestable dumb bastards.

Illiterate ******* as well, it is "they're" which is an abbreviation of they are, not "there".

Stupid, horse punching, racist, ridiculously gullible former non league *****, aren't they?

That is brilliant! They've got one 'player' that looks like a down and out meth head and could have used anyone else for that pic but, no, not r*vers! ;)

Another beauty...

January: Rov*rs are just one win away from starting their play-off charge that will see them leapfrog the Teds for the first time in 16 years. 

February: Rov*rs are just one win away from starting their play-off charge that will see them leapfrog the Teds for the first time in 16 years.

March: Rov*rs are just one win away from starting their play-off charge that will see them leapfrog the Teds for the first time in 16 years.

April: Rov*rs are just one win away from starting their play-off charge that will see them leapfrog the Teds for the first time in 16 years.

May: The season ends with Rov*rs in mid-table obscurity. The gap will last for another year.

June-August: To close the off-field gap and the give the loyal and few the facilities they deserve, the curtains and carpets are cleaned and a canopy is built.

September: Rov*rs are just one win away from starting their play-off charge that will see them leapfrog the Teds for the first time in 17 years etc etc etc

December: 2 dirty Teds provide much needed good cheer across North Bristol and appear as Rov*rs' festive pin-up boys.
