  1. I had no issue with it. But the thing missing from this statement, if my memory serves; was that if you didn't take up the offer. Then your shares would revert to being worthless; and would be written off.
  2. I'll go back and check my paperwork. But i'm sure it said "yes, we will pay you £10 per share. But if you don't take up the offer, your share will still be compulsory purchased by Pula sports, and the money will be donated to the club" I think it read a bit fait accompli.
  3. Hence why Pula Sports bought out all the other shareholders, to do away with the necessity for an AGM each season.
  4. Didn't we do something like that in the mid nineties? I know I was a "Silver" share subscriber, £600 bought me discounts off my season tickets for 3 years; and a load of shares. I think there was Gold ones as well. These shares were x10 (in quantity) of what the 1982 shares were. So over time, when they were administrated by Cartwrights, and then Burgess Salmon; I made quite a bit of money on them. Selling them to people that were listed on the share register as wanting to buy them. Of course Pula Sports have now bought up all of the remaining shares through some sort of compul
  5. Now that Jon Lansdown is back in the country. I've no doubt that Jon will be sitting down sorting out all of the issues/appointments that need doing; just like a chairman does.
  6. @Davefevs what are your views on Louis Britton? He's had a great season at Under 23s, and has done ok out on loan at Torquay; and yet can't even get on our bench? I see that we've exercised his contract option, but this reads a little like the "liam rosenior situation" of yesteryear; in that we only exercised it to keep some transfer value. With the raft of new contracts for the younger players, a new one for Britton is noticeable in it's absence. It looks like he's off to pastures new, which is a shame; as he's the type of physical player that we are missing at the moment.
  7. If NP takes over next season. I'm sure he'll look to bring his own personnel in coaching wise. He's also already alluded to "never knowing am injury situation, like we've had". There are obviously massive question marks over the medical team at the club, and i would be very surprised if they haven't already been identified as an area where we need to make a change.
  8. https://www.stokesentinel.co.uk/sport/football/transfer-news/stoke-city-accounts-bet365-breaking-5252211.amp Blimey, one for @Mr Popodopolous and @Davefevs to pour over. How will losses like this work with FFP?
  9. I'm a bit confused about how they are actually going to go about getting a new manager in practice. Last years "extensive search" took 6 weeks, and would have excluded, and annoyed a number of good applicants that were thought not to be good enough/not want we want. Are we taking the same approach this time? Somewhat doubtful, as we simply don't have the time. So do we adopt a different role profile that we are looking for, or try to repair the inevitable burnt bridges from the first process. Hughton and McCarthy now in jobs. Others have ruled out cook already. Fun times ah
  10. Thanks @Mr Popodopolous I must say in first impressions, the bear's facility seems a lot larger/extensive than ours. Maybe the cost of the land/infrastructure at Failand had an impact on the total cost. If you look at the building structures themselves, there appears to be some disparity.
  11. Our form over the last 15 league games, puts us 22nd in the championship. With only Birmingham and Wycombe with a worse points tally. If they've been instilling good practices over the last 4 months; it hasn't had the desired effect unfortunately.
  12. I was just asked by my eldest, why the Bears seem to have an £11m huge new training facility; whilst our new one (although very nice) is a much more modest affair? Have to admit I couldn't answer that question. Why didn't we use the location that the bears are in now, to spend the money; and build a brand new Cat A facility. I think one of the requirements is an indoor pitch? Seems a bit of a strange situation, when you consider size of the organisations; and respective payrolls etc. Any views to placate a 15 year, would be appreciated.
  13. It would be interesting in the future, that if he does sell up; what he actually sells. I doubt many owners would be keen to buy Bristol Sport lock, stock and barrel. I know of the Bears, Women's team and Flyers being involved. But isn't there other sports technically covered under the same banner?
  14. Good points @BTRFTG I have no gripe per se with SL. But it must now be obvious to him that the current set up isn't working. The fans are getting incredibly disillusioned, and all the good work of the last 5 years seems to be going to waste. If feels a bit like groundhog day, after GJ left; and the slowly downward trajectory towards L1 seemed inevitable. I'm still mystified by the DH appointment last summer after the "intensive search". I think I posted at the time, that that was time to show ambition as a club; and to take this club in another direction. We showed ourselves at
  15. So, Tisdale departs the gas after a dismal run of results. However if you check out the form guide over the last 15 games, the gas have only got 3 less points than is during that period (City 15, Rovers 12). DH can count himself very lucky he had that first honeymoon month of the season. Because without it, we would be in the bottom three in the division; and the clamour for change would be even louder.
