Bit premature.

Will wait until 1:30, and even if the announcement confirms it I'm a bit sceptical.

Absolutely surreal though all this news, weird more than anything.

Yeah a little but the rumours have been around for months now, will see what happens. Rovers usually manage to cock it all up so I won't hold my breath.....

From what is being said on twitter the present board, will become normal "fans". From what I have seen over the last 30 years can't quite see them on the beer at the Vic before the game...

Just getting it in first.

It'll all end in tears.
And so it starts.

Breaking NEWS: Darrell Clarke leaves Bristol Rovers my mutual consent and will be replaced by a Saudi Prince. More to follow...

We'll be ready to form AFC Bristol Rovers for the 2018/19 season, don't worry!

I hope with all this you do get a new stadium but until the final whistle at the end of the first game there.... I remain sceptical about it all!
Even more sceptical about who might end up owning new stadium and all that but we'll see!

Yeah of course, I feel the same. We'll find out soon enough.

No doubt yet Another crook using a club as a toy to bleed dry whilst looking like a hero on the face of it.

This takeover will go one of two ways. Glory or oblivion, nothing in between.

Roll that dice, North Bristol.

It's not one man, it's a family and they already have ties in youth football and the son is an executive of the Jordan football association
So these hopefully won't be crooks
