  1. Why would there be any Police costs when you are talking about the best and most obedient fans in the world?
  2. You mean JCH who didn't play today because he got injured on Tuesday because if the dodgy soure face they had to play on as per Cockman Radio Bristol interview?
  3. Was in hospitality a few years ago when JLC was there with a few mates. Asked to give a speech and declared he was City through and through. If you cut him he even bled red - his words not mine, but I did laugh
  4. And where do we sign up for the AG8 statues? Top marks again @Shtanley for another exceptional podcast and one and a half hours of my life well spent
  5. Very sad about Stuart, never heard a bad word about the man, even if he was a blue . He had been suffering from degenerative brain disease for several years and went down hill fast, ended up just a shadow of his former self. Never diagnosed as chronic traumatic encephalopathy (once known as punch drunk syndrome), but surely no coincidence given his occupation, playing style and the footballs of old, as the family of Jeff Astle are only too aware and of which Geoff Twentyman has highlighted, to his credit. The sooner that this condition is officially recognised the better, especially by the likes of the FA and Premier League, who need to financially and morally support the many ex pro’s and their families through what is a debilitating and often, fatal syndrome. RIP big man, from all sides of Bristol.
  6. Is it just me or is the buy it button missing?
  7. So who can rightfully and genuinely claim to have first used and coined the wonderful expression of “mind the gap”. Not a challenge or knock down, but just intrigued to know if we can actually identify and thank who created (OK London underground might have a shout here) when they first used the accurate and amusing analogy between ourselves and the Gas?
  8. In summary So anything regarding development and investing in the future is no more. What a surprise
  9. It's called Can you beat the bookies BBC 3 And it's coming up on I-player
  10. Yep sadly been tarnished in this way for quite a few years now and Sunday afternoon is a big occasion for the donkey dunkers
  11. Yep watched it last week, very interesting especially how bookies shut down your account or limit bets to single pounds if you actually start to beat them
  12. To me a non storey, but wouldn't complain about receiving a £18.5m in dividends this year https://www.dailymail.co.uk/money/markets/article-7338489/Hargreaves-Lansdown-founders-80m-300-000-customers-access-nest-eggs.html?ns_mchannel=rss&ns_campaign=1490&ito=1490 Also worth noting the disparity between Steve Lansdown's shareholding and Peter Hargeaves. Whilst originally not equal (50/50) shareholders in the business, Steve's now significantly smaller percentage is largely down to sales to fund BCFC. I remember him selling a chunk at approx £4 a share to fund Ashton Vale - shares currently around £20 - ouch And still there are those who doubt his commitment to the project!! He's personally hundreds of millions down in funding BDFC
  13. Spoke to someone today with a financial interest in the fruit market. Said that a conditional offer to purchase the site had been received, but it would have to be agreed by 75% of the owners and that there are multiple parties that own the site, so far from straightforward. Also mentioned a 7 to 9 year time scale, so where Wael is getting a two year build from is anyone’s guess? Presumably time would be needed to relocate from the fruit market, aside from all of the other hurdles and issues mentioned in previous threads.
  14. Before we get too carried away, other clubs would have had to pay a substantially higher transfer fee than the fixed fee we agreed a year ago. Therefore we could offer him a far higher weekly wage. Credit still for bringing him on from where he was 12 months ago, and increasing his value to well in excess of the reported £2m
  15. Same could be said about our future prime minister Oh sh*t I've just lost my own arguement And in case you ever wondered about the whole Boris act, just read this very poignant and revealing observation from Jeremy Vine https://blogs.spectator.co.uk/2019/06/my-boris-story/
