In this impromptu episode of GasCast, Neno, Harley & Max sit down to fangirl over Rovers' signing of Erhun Oztumer - the 'Turkish Messi' - from Charlton Athletic.

(NOTE: Episode recorded prior to Ryan Jones signing!) Support the show (


Talk of Tutonda

Duke is joined by Cazzer and friend of the show, Jake Barber. The sporty pizza pod club discuss WINS and the development of sexy Garner-ball. Caz is seriously impressed with Dave Tutonda and Jake has plenty of superlatives for Josh Hare, who have both looked very good on their respective wings. We are all pleasantly surprised by Daly's first goal for the club and we dissect the whole of the incisive move that came moments after Jaakkola was picking the ball out of his net. A special...


A CHAT WITH: Phil 'Percy' Purnell

Caz is joined by Bristol Rovers legend Phil 'Percy' Purnell in a special throwback 'A Chat With' episode. From supporting Rovers at a young age on the Eastville terraces, to scoring - not one - but TWO of the most important goals in Bristol Rovers' history. Phil touches on the moment he kept us up by scoring the only goal in a 1-0 win over Newport, beating Bristol City 3-0 to secure promotion AND that all important goal in the 3-0 win over Blackpool to beat our rivals to the title. Phil...


SCOUT REPORT: Lincoln City (A)

Mets caught up with Gary Hutchinson from The Stacey West website and podcast to look ahead to Saturdays game at Sincil Bank. Lincoln have a 100% record in the league and are currently top. Rovers go into the game after a 2-0 win against Northampton at home which lifted them off the foot of the table. Gary talks about the change in style the Micheal Appleton has instigated and how it is showing fruit so far. Lincoln have scored 9 goals in the four league games so far and Gary feels there is...


SCOUT REPORT: Northampton (H)

Mets is joined by Charles from the It’s all Cobblers to me podcast to look ahead to Saturdays game at the Mem. Rovers go into the game on a poor run of form. An opening day draw against Sunderland at the Stadium of light has been followed up with losses to Ipswich and Donny. Northampton on the other hand have fared a bit better. An opening day draw with Wimbledon has been followed up with a win against Shrewsbury and a loss against Hull. They chat about the hoofball under Keith Curle and...


A lack of leadership

Mets is joined by Max Alderson and debutant Mike Willett. In a special treat for the lads they are recording from the Sporty! The lads talk about the defensive frailties, especially from set pieces and if its the responsibility of the coaches to drill players or if individuals need to take more responsibility for tracking their men. At the other end of the pitch things are looking grim and they discuss the lack of chances created for our strikers. Each gives their stance on Garner in/out...


A CHAT WITH: Anwar Uddin

Duke is joined Anwar Uddin to talk about his fascinating and varied career, both past and present. From playing youth football for West Ham with the likes of Rio Ferdinand, he then moved to Sheffield Wednesday which ended prematurely after the collapse of ITV Digital left Wednesday in financial trouble. Wednesday's loss was Rovers gain as Anwar made the journey to North Bristol. This was after John Still used his persuasive skills to assure Anwar that Rovers were heading in a better...


SCOUT REPORT: Doncaster (A)

Caz is joined by Donny fan Dan Nice to talk about Bristol Rovers' next fixture away at the Keepmoat Stadium. Although The Gas have gained one point from two difficult fixtures, the performances have been unappealing for many of the Gasheads who tuned in to iFollow. The pressure is mounting on Ben Garner's shoulders as he desperately seeks his first win of the season. Doncaster are so far unbeaten in the league, although have struggled to keep a clean sheet. They most recently secured an...


The Stadium of Fight

Max is joined by Mets and friend of the show Lucy Ford. After a battling 1-1 draw at the Stadium of Light, Max, Mets and Lucy dissect the game and the much improved performance from the game against Ipswich. They discuss how a gritty defensive performance earned the Gas a point. They discuss Phil Parkinsons post match comments and if this was time wasting or streetwise 'game management'. The return of Ansii between the sticks made a huge difference, with a string of saves. Is he the best...


A CHAT WITH: The Gas Girls

Mets caught up with Matthew Davis aka Mavis, Nathan Hallett-Young and Natty Coles from the GasGirls. After their 2019/20 season was declared null and void the girls find themselves back where they started 12 months ago. This was especially upsetting as they had a 100% record in the league and were only one win away from clinching the title. Nathan explains how he wants the game to be played and this is born out in the attacking football the girls have been playing. This is typified in a...


SCOUT REPORT: Brandon Hanlan ft. Gills In The Blood

Duke is joined by Matt from Gills In The Blood to discuss another Rovers capture of a Gillingham player - this time it is 23-year-old forward, Brandon Hanlan. Maybe not the marquee signing that some were expecting but the 23-year-old forward joins the Gas on a two-year deal and has scored 16 goals across 84 appearances for Gillingham. Garner describes Hanlan as a powerful and skilful forward who can both create and score goals who also has the work ethic and energy he wants at the front end...


SCOUT REPORT: Sunderland (A)

Caz is joined by Bomber from Roker Report to talk about Rovers' opening league fixture against Sunderland at The Stadium of Light. Rovers have had a shaky start to the season, losing the first two cup matches and conceding 5 goals. Garners new 3-4-3 system is suddenly looking a lot less promising than it did in pre-season. Sunderland were also knocked out of the first round of the Carabao Cup - only just losing out to Hull City on penalties after a 0-0 draw in 90 minutes. They quickly made...



Mets is joined by Jack Prentice to talk about Rovers opening fixture against Ipswich in the Carabao cup. Rovers have had a largely successful pre-season, with some of the youngsters like Walker and Hargreaves catching the eye in Garners new 3-4-3 system. Ipswich on the other hand have had a bit of a gruelling one, they have played Spurs and West Ham in pre-season which are expected losses, but a loss to Cambridge in their last outing has already put Paul Lambert under pressure. Jack...


2020/21 Season Look Ahead

This is the recording of a LIVE epsiode of Gascast looking forward to the 2020/21 season. Mets is joined by Neno, Jack, Caz and Max to look back at who stood out in preseason and who we think will be making a big splash this coming season. With JCH leaving for Posh for an initial £1.25m there is a big number 9 spaced hole in the attack, but is Garner going to replace like for like there? Each of the gang give their predictions for the season. Some are more optimistic than others! There...


A CHAT WITH: Lance Cook

Duke had a chinwag with PA announcer extraordinaire, Lance Cook. Lance gives us an insight into his role, how he got the gig and the highs & lows of being the voice of Rovers. The chat also touches on mental health and the role the Rovers community plays in supporting one another, but also how things can become toxic. We discuss personal experiences and what has helped and what has been difficult. If you have been affected by anything that was discussed in this episode please reach out to...


Digital Gas and Sky+ Referees

With the 2020/21 Season bearing down on us, the boys are joined by super charity marathon runner Nik Weeks to talk about the two pre-season wins against Bristol Manor Farm and Exeter City, as well as the signings of Zain Westbrooke and Jayden Mitchell-Lawson. With two games to discuss, the guys look over the new 3-4-3 shape Ben Garner seems to be favouring, as well as individual performances that have stood out so far. Duke talks JML in the #10 role, Nik thinks we still need another...


A CHAT WITH: Stuart Sinclair

Mets had the pleasure of speaking to his all time favourite player Stuart Sinclair about his time at the Gas. Stu talks about his release by Luton at 16 and plying his trade in non-league with various clubs before DC brought him to BS7. An instant fan favourite he chats about his rise through the leagues with the Gas. Starting with the conference season they talk about the pressure the squad and manager were under for an instant return to league football. He talks about the injury that...


SCOUT REPORT: Zain Westbrooke ft. Empty Seats

Duke is joined by Simon from the Football League focused YouTube channel Empty Seats and is also a massive Coventry fan. We discuss the signing of the highly rated ex-Coventry midfielder Zain Westbrooke. The 23 year-old joins on a three year deal, for an undisclosed fee and was a key part in Coventry’s championship winning campaign. Westbrooke will wear the number 8 this season and is likely to be a key figure in the heart of the Rovers midfield. Will Westbrooke be the creative centre...
