  1. Thank you to everybody on here who gave advice and information about attending the Take That concert. We parked in one of the side streets off Duckmoor Road, quite near the stadium. Slight hiccup, as we then discovered that each of us had assumed the other one had printed the tickets off the e-mail - so no tickets! Stewards and the ticket office were very helpful in getting us in, and the people doing the bag searches were very friendly. We then somehow managed to be sitting in the wrong block, and were led out by two stewards and escorted to our correct seats - which were actually a sligh

  2. Not one of anyone's high points that would have been at this game, still amazes me the game got played on the night, the TV footage was very indicative of what happened But the bottom line is nobody should go to a football match and not come back alive

  4. First of all what a great night, Ashton Gate done Bristol proud and certainly hosted a great show with very little critism from me. I have been to many gigs at many venues and I have tried to think about my experience without any bias. I got to AG around 4.30pm so plenty early. There were already lots of people arriving. The stadium was busy serving drinks of all kinds and lots of food, they certainly seemed to have put the effort in to cater for most. I didn’t buy anything as we had gone to Wetherspoons in Clifton and had food and drink, love a Steak Day me! On arrival for pitch st

  9. I must say, when the evening got darker and the only lights were from the stage, the concert got better! The club really should look to turn off the fluorescent lighting in the stands when we have night games, it was so much better.

  12. Their fans? It wasn’t that long ago we were promoted to the second tier under GJ and that season they finished above us ... no need to look down on other clubs, we ain’t in a position to be condescending are we ?!

  14. I agree. I find it staggering that we can have people drinking alcohol, standing, dancing and moving to and from their seats in a dark football ground and that is less of a risk than a football match where we have to be illuminated at a level that it affects my enjoyment. Crazy.

I agree yes the Journalism is shit, I said on here a few weeks back now that if our local rag were any decent sort of news outlet they’d of sent someone down Chernobyl trying to find out, not just for themselves but for the loyal and true masses as to what the hell is happening down there, but they don’t kick up a fuss enough for anybody to take any notice, so end up with the shit club they deserve. I mean how can anymore not feel sorry for them, and just gift them a new stadium for absolutely nothing, when you have supporters like this deluded bellend below.... Amazing fan base, the

  18. Here's my Take That claim to fame. Back in the early 90s, when I was very nearly almost famous for playing a stupid Norman soldier on the kids show Maid Marian and her Merry Men, some of the cast did a guest appearance on a TV show called Hangar 17, which was a sort of variety show for kids. As I recall, we were in a showbiz quiz against a team from East Enders. Other guests on the show were Take That. I'd never heard of them, but my 13 year old niece begged me to get their autographs. They were in the dressing room over the corridor and only too happy to oblige. Nice lads. There was something

  24. I think we are at a watershed on FFP now. Gibson has thrown his toys out and gone legal - will that work? Doubt it, but at least he has made his feelings clear and tried to do something. The issue here is not the spineless EFL, its the other clubs in this league who would appear to have let Derby and Villa off the hook at the meeting they had in March. They were the clubs that should have said no, this is not acceptable and forced the EFL to act, they didn't. Villa are now home free, at least they are if they are not relegated next year, will Derby now feel hot breath on their collar

  27. I’ve always enjoyed away days much more than home games - I just hate the attitude of some of our home fans - lots of years back I just did away games for two seasons and didn’t renew my season ticket - and the reason was a ‘City fan’ yelled “What have you ever done for the shirt Tinnion?” during a home game when Tinman was getting towards the end of his career - that was enough for me - after telling him what I thought of his comment I had no interest in sitting amongst idiots like that at The Gate - so I just did away games, and enjoyed it soooo much more - we’ve got some right ‘orrible, neg

  29. Read all these posts, seen all these pictures and I can't help but think... Section82 are going to have to raise their game next season. Entry to the south stand via a cardboard cutout space invader, with them then miming along to terrace chants from the 70s should do it.

Post are all over it now so it must be true https://www.bristolpost.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/bristol-rovers-respond-warning-club-2918107 A statement from the club explains: 'The accounts were filed by the club's auditors, Grant Thornton, on Thursday evening, but they only used a second class stamp.

(it's not to stop you sneaking in a cheeky vodka!) It is routinely carried out in courts for visitors and even members of the jury. Glad it all went off well

I did fear the worst, but to be fair to Rick, whilst his music is not my cup of tea, he still has an impressive voice, and as far as support acts go, he at least knew how to get the crowd going. For me, the highlight of Take That's set was their Evel Kinevel tribute act:

Said hello the first few times and then exchanged pleasantries after that, one of which he instigated, which was very decent of him.

  47. The stadium was valued in 2017 at c£41m, this was based on the original cost of construction less depreciation (an annual reduction in value based on the expected useful life of the asset, probably 50 years). In the 2017/18 financial year Derby ‘sold’ the stadium for £81m meaning they could book a profit of £40m. The reason this could be viewed as dubious is the sale was not to 3rd party, but to another company owned by Derby’s owner. There is nothing illegal in that, in business sale and leaseback transactions are quite common usually to allow a company to access cash from valuable asset
