I definitely don't have a "love in" with them, but they do amuse..... as did Donald Trump. Get Promoted from L2? I don't care. Get relegated from L2? I don't care. They make me smile, they are occasionally ball achingly nauseating but as long as they keep their distance...I'm happy

If they do go up at least Derby will have a massive club to visit and enjoy a cup final atmosphere

There was a time when I was a youngster that we would watch City one week and Rovers the next.  I'm sure a fair few on here did the same. Always a City fan though.

 

Was quite common before the 70s. My dad did the same, though he was so City he once turned down a company car because it was blue!

Even the great Adge Cutler sang "If the City don't win Saturday, p'raps the Rovers will" *.

I think the scheming Gas antics in '82 and other general unpleasantness has permanently poisoned matters for genuine supporters.   I can't imagine any real City fan wanting to watch those fleabags nowadays.

Predicting it now - If the gas go up there will be some post on sagchat next year following one of their two matches against (WR?)DC - It will go along the lines of

"chatting to a rams fan in the pub,  he  told me that we brought more fans/made more noise than BCFC" 

i.e. He a cornered an unsuspecting derby fan, who had dropped his guard for a fatal few minutes - The Derby fan when trapped and harassed basically said anything that he thought the dribbling saghead wanted to hear to get away quickly!

I've still got the scars, horrible club with horrible fans. **** um 😐 

I feel sorry for you having such hate for them. All hate does is effect you and not effect the object of your hate one iota so why bother?
To me the gas mean nothing, nothing at all but as the other Bristol club I hope they do well and if they get promoted then well done to them.

Back in the days when the gas played at Eastville, a member of my father's staff, who was a staunch city supporter would never,  as a matter of principle,  use the M32. 

How very silly.

Living as a kid on the ‘front line’ in North West Bristol, the majority of mates were Sags, several of whom were ball boys at Eastville. Most tried to convince me at one stage or other to cross to the dark side. Don’t know how, but one Saturday they persuaded me to ballboy at the Dog Track. It was against Reading. 

Still receiving therapy.

I've always hated the Gas and I've always hated the Tories. Some things will never change!!

Is that a quote from the small businesses in Bedminster?

Think most small businesses in Bedminster are quite grateful for the presence of the football club nearby and the increased footfall that it brings on a regular basis.

If you’re referring to the small businesses that suffered as a result of our financial difficulties 40 years ago then it’s a tricky path for Gasheads to venture especially considering the fact that Rovers were found to have been paying non playing staff below minimum wage and the business between your club and the small company that erected the fence at your training ground. As far as I’m aware there’s no financial reason why Rovers should have difficulty paying the going rate to staff and settling bills?

Lets not forget the way the Rugby club was treated.

Lanterne Rouge is clearly talking about the time Rovers deliberately tried to bury us at our lowest point.

Tempted to watch from the away end on saturday, FGR could confirm promotion and I think if Rovers slip up it should pretty much kill off any hope of automatic. Probably should be a crime against football just turning up to the game where a team get promoted but could be an interesting day out.

I agree. Swindon are too far away, but its a giant improvement on how they started the season. Suspect the Gastards will finish third, but League 1 will be a very tough ask for them 

Hate to say it but our season looks over unless we can win our last 4 games so the 3500 going to Wallsall on the last day of the season will be going for a celebration that we still have a club rather than in hope of making the play offs.

Loan players being called back in January and losing our top goal scorer or several games has caught up with us but I'm sure we're be back stronger next season with more time to prepare a new squad. Even though the Gas have  been on a great run and hats off to them they are still not guaranteed promotion and even if they achieve it I struggle to see how they can survive against the quality teams in league one. On the positive side our attenadces both home and away have been excellent and hopefully will continue next season

Your crowds have been impressive whereas Rovers were struggling to break 6000 until they won a few games in the past couple of months and then their attendances increased by a massive 50%, real fair-weather fans

They will go back into hibernation if they mess it up over the next few games!  I'm still riled that they only gave us 700 tickets at their place😡

I used to enjoy driving past when the speedway was on as the crowds were much bigger!

Well said, Rovers tried to ‘steal’ Ashton Gate from us when we were at our lowest ebb then objected to us being given an offer of financial help by local authorities, so that offer of help was withdrawn - yet they still squeak, squeal and complain that the local authorities do nothing to help them ... in 1982 they circled around like bloodthirsty vultures and they’ve acted in a similar fashion towards other clubs - like when Pompey was in dire financial straits; which club do you think it was who steamed straight into that situation to see if they could pick up any Pompey players for way below their market value ... yep, the squatting vultures ... 1982, never forget, never forgive ...

Yes I clearly remember the Rovers players being upset that they hadn't seen him drive by.🤣
