Nail on the head, Phillistine. Lots of younger Rovers fans revere Bobby Gould but he was an arch manipulator in this respect. You look at his record with the clubs he managed, plus Wales, and you'll find it's pretty poor, but boy could he talk a good game and get the media on his side.
Out if interest, what age group are you alluding to when you say " lots of younger fans" please ?
I have heard nothing but bad stuff about Bobby Goukd from younger fans and those have had stories passed into then from older fans who remember Gould leaving us the first time around who feel he was a Judas.
There are always two sides to every story. I have heard both sides.
If you contacted Gould, I am sure he would be open to an interview. I think many would be very interested in what he has to say.
BTW, I am not looking to start an argument here. I just think that many would be very surprised, if not shocked, were they to know what went on behind the scenes. I also think you would thoroughly enjoy talking with Bobby. I think history will show him to have had a pivotal role in saving us as a club in those dark first seasons at Twerton. We may not have placed well but we survived and a major part of that was down to Goulds use of YTS and the ability to source players from non league and even the downs.
