From Bristol With Love – No. 44

Click here to listen

Dick goes to Burnham, Durston goes “brown-stargazing”!

Gus Hoyt (champion of The True Community of St Pauls) vs Passion FM and the Star & Garter: We know which side of his “divide and rule” tactic FBWL is on!

“I’m not a knicker-sniffer I’m the kncker-sniffer’s son, I’m only sniffing knickers till ….. my Russian wife comes back from Rekjavik”

Cops take ‘restorative justice’ on a 13yr boy with learning difficulties, as ‘Big Gregory’ applauds from the Bristol Post comments.

And for the final section – Gas Talk returns! Report on the Scunthorpe game (a sighting of a Terrace Rat on the Blackthorn) and we look forward to the return of ‘orrible whistle’ Chris Zebroski and the mayhem of Newport away on Saturday.

And where else would we end but with Rickie Lambert’s England Goal? Kiss our blue and white quartered faces! Plus Dick engages in some anarcho-friendly power-neutral Scotch-baiting, which appalls Durston so much he slits his own throat with a Puma zip!

Music from Phaeleh (feat Jess Mills), The Drawing of the 3, and The Cadbury Sisters

Bristol Rovers Family Fun Day

The Bristol Rovers Football Club annual fun day will take place at the Memorial Stadium on Sunday 21st July, from 12pm to 4pm. The event is free to attend and will be bigger and better than ever before.
Among the many new attractions and types of entertainment confirmed are:
• Fans’ first opportunity to purchase the new season kit
• A rare opportunity to watch a training session, with full commentary from Manager, John Ward
• Meet Manager, John Ward, and the players for this season and collect autographs from your favourite players
• Launch of the Bristol Rovers Big Local App – now fans can stay in touch with The Pirates on their mobile
• Cheerleader displays courtesy of the Black Panther Cheerleading Squad
• Behind-the-scenes tours of the players’ dressing room
• Children’s pirate fancy dress competition – open to all children to take part. Judging to be at 2.30pm by John Ward when the winner will be presented with a signed football
• An opportunity to have your picture taken with Irene the Bristol Rovers ‘gorilla’
Stadium Manager, Ian Holtby, says: “Bristol Rovers will be throwing open the stadium doors for our annual fun day. The event is free of charge to attend and open to all. Come and join us for a great family day out, not only will it be the first opportunity to purchase the new season kit, but also the launch of our new free to download mobile phone app.”
Bristol Rovers are always looking for new ways to engage with fans and keep them up-to-date with news and make it easy for them to access the information they need. The Bristol Rovers Big Local App is a great new way for people to get up-to-date information just at the touch of button – and what’s more its free. There will be an Bristol Rovers Big Local App stand at the fun day, showing you how to download and navigate it.
The fun day has received great support from local businesses including Bristol Balloons who will be bringing one of their distinctive multi-coloured hot air balloons and flaring it up at regular intervals throughout the day.
Also represented will be Bristol-based dealer, Fowlers Motorcycles. They will display a range of motorcycles as well as the quirky Paiggo Ape small three-wheeled commercial vehicle – so there will be lots of great photo opportunities. They will also hand out free goody bags (while stocks last).
The Bristol branch of the National Association of Blood Bikes charity “Freewheelers” will be raising awareness of the charity and the vital work they carry out.
Firefighters from Avon Fire & Rescue Southmead Community Safety Centre will be attending but not to extinguish any fires! Instead, they will talk about their work and demonstrate some of the kit on a fire appliance. Additionally, they will be giving advice on fire safety.
There will also be a number of support groups such as the Bristol Rovers Helpline who will be present to answer any questions supporters may have regarding their association with the club.
As well as all this, there will be go-karts for children to drive, a funfair, face painting, a BBQ, an ice cream van and promotional giveaways courtesy of Peter’s Pies and Mars.
Staff of the British Army careers office will be there with their recruiting trailer, a paintball range and a BATAK machine – to test your fitness and reaction time.
Members of the 39th Signal Regt (V), Territorial Army, based at Horfield TA Centre, Bristol, will be carrying out a recruitment drive and bringing along an army recovery truck, a radio Land Rover and its recruiting trailer.
Lt MS Crilly from the Recruiting, Retention & Mentoring Team says: “The Territorial Army is a volunteer active duty reservist force that forms one quarter of the British Army and trains people from all walks of life to be soldiers in their free time.
“We are currently carrying out a major national recruitment drive and are expecting to increase our fully trained members from 19,000 to 30,000 by 2018. If you are interested in joining the TA, please come along to the Bristol Rovers fun day to meet members of your local branch for an informal chat.”
Advantage Vans will display the new Bristol Rovers’ team vehicle and the event will be supported by local charities including the Prostate Cancer Charity.
Please note: due to the volume of on-site activity, there will be no on-site parking at the stadium during the fun day. Players will leave the site at 3pm.

Maggie Memorial Special!

The Sickening Shame of of the West Country, Dick Gherkin and Durston Fletcher, celebrate the passing of a tyrant in typical FBWL fashion, with added expertise and wisecracks from Bristol Radical Historian Mr Snuff!

Why Thatcher was a proper nause, including all her best bits – Chilean mass murderers, Section 28, NHS Trusts, the destruction of community and the deregulation that led us to 30 years of hell past, with 30 years of poverty to look forward to!

Easton Maggie Party – first hand accounts of a lovely party that got crashed by ‘outside elements’, dressed in riot gear!

Why riots and ‘sickening celebrations’ are all part of Bristol’s radical history!

Why Harry Redknapp needs to get out of London more, and we confirm Fascist Paolo Di Canio is a ‘bugiardo di merda’.

And finally a bit of Gas Talk, as we lick our lips in preparation for City’s relegation – mind the gap!

This week we play The Beat and local bands The Hit Ups and Three Kings High

“Man-mark me and I will only become stronger….”

If you’ve listened to FBWL 33, this makes sense. “This” being the face of Bristol Rovers wonder winger Fabian Broghammer photoshopped onto an image of Obi Wan Kenobi.
Thanks to Durston Fletcher for the artwork!

Safe Standing Up The Gas Petition

We at From Bristol With Love fully support this petition > Safe Standing Up The Gas Petition

Bristol Rovers has always been a special club, and wherever it has been – Eastville, Twerton, or The Mem – the home terrace has always created a special atmosphere.

The Bristol Rovers FC Board of Directors have shown themselves to be a forward thinking team; and we thank them for the excellent work they have done to secure the new UWE stadium.

Now we, the undersigned, the Bristol Rovers fans, ask the board to be forward thinking in the design of our new stadium. We ask that they accept that ‘safe standing’ is an idea who’s time has come; and for them to ensure that 15% of the ground (10% home, 5% away) is adaptable to sit or stand by way of the provision of ‘rail seats’, or some other suitable standing solution.

We, the faithful and true Bristol Rovers supporters, ask the board to respect the wishes of those of the Old Tote End, Popular End, Bass and Blackthorn. Provide us with a safe, future-proof, and forward thinking solution to the desire for loyal fans to stand and support the Gas. A solution that ensures our special atmosphere continues in our new home. 

Continue the excellent work you have begun, and let us, Stand Up for the Gas.
