  1. Bristol Rovers Dustbin Thread

    That's all regulated between between banking law, land law, contract law, company law etc. One example is a mortgage. That's a loan secured against an asset and so in some scenarios a court could order the property is transferred to the lender, even if it was sold. Or you could have a term of the loan which prevents sell of assets, you might make a condition of finance that you have voting rights, or rights to appoint director. The reality is a lender can do a lot to protect their position.

    The value would be in the land. Demolition cost risks would be built in to the cost of financing.
  3. In this case I agree. Flint was stupid to get this suspension. If a deputy proves trustworthy, that's a consequence of Flint's own mistake. If it's a suspension earned after taking one for the team - preventing goal scoring chance or accumulation of bookings - I would disagree simply because that shouldn't be discouraged.
  4. Bristol Rovers Dustbin Thread

    Sort of, but no haha. PFI is peculiar to private investment (ie non-govt) into public sector offerings. Bristol Sport providing the finance for a new NHS hospital in Bristol could be an example of PFI. Because Rovers are a private company it's not PFI, but the problems are still the same - providing the financier with a return on their investment. A lot of the PFI controversy surrounds the cost of the financing, but that's not peculiar to PFI. So then bear in mind that's lending to the govt- a debtor you would probably consider quite secure...
  5. I think it's fair that you should pay full price and get a rebate. We are after all being invited to renew our own seat at this point and it would be a logistical nightmare to try to move people during a renewal period with the amount of uncertainty. The 8 hour window is very poor. The £25 I know of only for the finance admin charge. It would be an absolute liberty if the club are charging administration for seat movements given they are engineering seat movements.
  6. Derby Vs Cardiff (Merged)

    Whilst it does seem odd, I personally think it's very insignificant. There's quite a difference between having a spectator occasion, expecting 20k+ to turn up and which if missed is missed forever, and on the other hand having a club shop open which might attract a handful of customers. It's one thing ensuring safe access up to a single door from an empty car park, quite another getting safe access around a whole stadium with large numbers and crowds. Don't get me wrong, it does seem as though Derby may have questions to answer, but I don't find anything eyebrow raising in the club shop being open. Stupid and naïve to tweet about it perhaps, but the fact a concession stall can operate doesn't then mean that a full stadium can operate.
  7. Eros Pisano......

    He used to be bang average, I think that's very unfair now though. In fact, its been a long time since I've noticed a fast striker giving Aden the run around, including recent games against the likes of Aguero. He's become quite adept and better than competent at dealing with pace and I would say it's where he has most improved.
  8. Next seasons Bristol Boys...

    Or both of them. Neither will be able to replicate Reid's energy over the full game, full season, but they can be managed and rotated between them to cover him.
  9. Derby Vs Cardiff (Merged)

    Given what they did for our away allocation, lovely.
  10. Yeah I get that Hellfire. But also this is the club's second bite at the cherry no less. It needs to be designed to cause the maximum possibility of a climb down, unfortunately the time the club is most in the spotlight is during those 90m.
  11. How about this - the club didn't involve fan groups for the initial release, and messed up, so they come up with an 'appeasement' and guess what, they STILL didn't run it by either group for views. They didn't learn the lesson first time round and ignored the advice that they should consult the second time around. I don't think the club has any desire to address the issue.
  12. What about something like handing Children outside the family area a small placard saying 'I'm not welcome here next year'. They'll need no encouragement to hold it aloft, and the image could be quite strong.
  13. Well it would appear the club was trying to delay the announcement until Friday so there would not be time to mobilise a protest. If that's what they don't want, that's what they should get. What form it should take, you won't get agreement from all. The most important thing I think is to sing about it for 90 minutes though. Keep singing about the subject even if we score a goal.
  14. Renewed or not renewed. Please post here

    It shouldn't be a tax issue. Corporation tax is staying the same between this financial year and the next so there is no incentive based on a rate change. Besides, CT is a tax on profits, and the club is loss making. As for FFP this is done by reference to the club's accounting period, which runs until 31 May each year, so again that wouldn't explain it.
