‘Good things to come’ – These Bristol Rovers fans couldn’t have been more wrong about this November 2020 decision



This article is part of Football League World’s ‘Rewind’ series, this content strand is where we rewind back to a particular moment at a club, assess the initial reaction from the fans, and then proceed to evaluate and reflect on whether fans were right to react in that way….

Paul Tisdale’s tenure in charge of Bristol Rovers came and went in the blink of an eye, with the experienced Football League man coming and going all in the space of four months. 

In total the former Exeter City boss took charge of 19 games before being given his marching orders by the powers that be at the Memorial Stadium after picking up just five wins during his time with the Gas.

Despite only being in the job for a miniscule period, he obviously didn’t do enough to convince the hierarchy that he was the man to turn the club’s long-term fortunes around and has now been succeeded by Joey Barton, who will be tasked with bringing the glory years back to the blue side of Bristol.

In this FLW Rewind, we take a brief look back at how the club’s supporters reacted to Tisdale’s initial appointment as their new manager back in November of last year.

Things got off to a disappointing start under the ex-MK Dons boss as the Gas failed to score in the opening two games of his tenure before they then dispatched of non-league Darlington by six goals to nil in the FA Cup, perhaps signalling that their fortunes were turning.

However a run of three wins on the bounce in league and cup was then followed by a run of 10 games without a victory, which ultimately cost the 48-year-old his job.

Tisdale is now on the lookout for the fifth club of his managerial career and will be keen to get back in the game soon to rebuild what was once a shining reputation at EFL level.
