  1. Imagine the chaos around AG8 if this actually happens

    Bet everyone's really glad they voted for a Mayor now.
  2. Imagine the chaos around AG8 if this actually happens

    Yeah, absolutely, because building homes in a harbour side development is bound to be affordable isn't it?? How much do they go for these days ?? Just a quick look on right move and I've found a 2 bed apartment for £500,000 and a 3 Bed for close to 1 Million.
  3. Transfer Requests

    It just goes to show how clubs get into so much trouble these days. Look at clubs like Portsmouth who would have been desperate to off load their high waged players to reduce their bills when they got into trouble a few years back. From reading this thread, even if they got a decent transfer fee then they could have been locked into the high wages. As to why clubs don't offer low wages to deliberately have the other club make up the shortfall, from what I've read here that only lasts for the duration the two contracts overlap. After that a player could find himself trapped on a ridiculously low wage so wouldn't be likely to risk signing a contract like that or the buying club would find themselves negotiating a new contract to keep the player and end up paying more in the long run. No wonder negotiations take so long.

  5. Bristol Rovers Dustbin Thread

    I have to say who gives a toss what their travelling support is? If they are content to travel around the country and watch that shite then more fool them.
  6. Shrewsbury Town

    I wonder if promotion would effect their plans for a safe standing area?
  7. Bristol Rovers Dustbin Thread

    That Supporters Club donation to the Shrews safe standing project seems worth every penny now. That's a great way to say thanks.
  8. Craig Shakespeare

    No surprise at all to read this. I thought it was a silly appointment at the time and more due to behind the scenes goings on than anything else.
  9. Concorde Documentary on BBC4 9pm tonight

    There's a book called 'The Concorde Conspiracy' that details the lobbying US Firms made to congress to ensure that Concorde was not given permission to fly at supersonic speeds over the States. There was a massive amount of opposition to Concorde and when over flights were banned it killed off a number of potential buyers. Lockheed were involved in a number of bribery and corruption scandals in the 50's and 60's https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lockheed_bribery_scandals

  14. Filton Airfield

    I seem to remember they did try and get Filton off the ground (pardon the pun) as a commercial airport sometime in the late 90's. I think approval was initially given however it went to a number of reviews. If I recall correctly, it was at the time when John Prescott was deputy Prime Minister. I can't remember if he was for or against but I think it was initially passed and then blocked and blocked again. I seem to remember that the locals were seriously up in arms about it and there was a big push against it (as you would imagine) from Lulsgate hence the huge upgrade in facilities there were given the green light including the runway extension. The moving of the main Post Office sorting centre from just outside Temple Meads to the airfield site was all part of the proposed commercial expansion of Filton Airfield.
