  2. Managed to sneak into the Mem Stad and take a few pictures. We may mock but they're starting to get their shit together... Home end. Away end. Directors box. Corporate hospitality. Even provision for those locked out. # Tick tock...

  5. Here's what basically happened: - In the last 12 months or so of Higgs' reign at Rovers the club looked at ways they could make UWE happen. These included plans/inquiries in regard to providing residential accommodation at both the UWE site and at the Mem in order to make the scheme viable. Problem is partners were needed for these schemes, so they were far from straightforward and the value of the Mem for residential was considerably less than what Sainsbury's were willing to pay. It is my impression that once these options were exhausted Higgs decision was made to sell up and he

  7. Cheers Kid. All in all then, any options open to them require a bucket load of cash to be invested out of someone's pocket. Can't see it happening from the current owners from what they have invested so far. I think their best bet is some sort of medium term phased development of The Mem, work it one side/end at a time. Still got to find some wedge for that though but it would be a step in the right direction. Would save a few quid on the demolition costs of the current patch though. Most of the 'stadia' can be taken down in a day and popped on the back o

  12. If a team has won the FA Cup then they are permitted to have triangular corner flags so that their achievement is never forgotten. Everyone else has to put up with square ones. If the artist's impression of the new ground is accurate, as I've no doubt it is, then it's clear that the 15'ers plan to win the FA Cup before they move into their new ground. I think that's probably a realistic expectation.

  13. Actually saw some power from Skeete tonight, usually he bores me to death. He has a fair amount of skill but never enough killer instinct to be exciting. One of the best things about this card is the fitty in the 2nd row...:)

  17. CK is now showing himself as being a promising golfer. Extremely unfortunate that we lost both CK and JB at the same time, although I suspect as chance would have it - with England contracts and the like - we would not have seen either play regularly for us. Somerset should have tried to sign (and retain) one of the best wicket keepers available at that time - Michael Bates! Sod his batting average - more than 7, I suspect, although I have not looked it up.

  19. Yeah he was incredible, however I feel he would have worked his way back into the limited overs team in some capacity so don't know how much we'd have seen of him over the years.

  28. Manor Farm have 3 stands* on one side of the pitch, just think of their potential! *Well, it's one stand, one bit of covered terracing that has a few chairs most of the time and one bit of covered terracing with a bar stool. But as there is seating I am calling it a stand.

  29. Ah see, they'd planned to build a 21k+ seater stadium but the way they are going that isn’t enough to accommodate the following they are gathering. Apparently.

  31. “I found out yesterday for the first time that we only have 3,416 seats here, and the way we are going that isn’t enough to accommodate the following we are gathering." How on earth can the chairman not know how many seats a football club has? SURELY that's a huge part in financial planning when setting prices. Unbelievable.
