  1. I would imagine it would need to be an exceptional amount of money offered for UWE to sell the land. Does anyone know how much spare capital Al-Gash have? I doubt anyone from the reds or the blues know, just the owners themselves. Still, be interesting to see if they're willing to put a real marker down to state their intentions.
  2. I can't imagine that UWE wouldn't be happy selling the land, especially as it's prime university real estate for future university development. You've only got to look how UWE took over HP and built up its campus since the 90's to see how fast they're expanding. I don't think they'd give up the stadium footprint that easliy.
  3. When's the announcement from the Judge on this?
  4. Just seen Wail Wael and his family just turn up after Rovers !! https://www.google.co.uk/imgres?imgurl=http://fromtheempire.files.wordpress.com/2010/07/article-1118782-031273e5000005dc-956_468x374.jpg&imgrefurl=http://mahaguru58.blogspot.com/2014/03/mh370-dealing-with-tragedy-stark.html&h=374&w=468&tbnid=PWYddqZHEwSUUM:&docid=2a17jxTGDJ-7eM&ei=1CfHVvX_O6jw6ASG25yAAQ&tbm=isch&ved=0ahUKEwj1uab8hYTLAhUoOJoKHYYtBxAQMwgtKAcwBw
  5. I don't get this argument? I keep hearing Gash fans saying "we'll get our stadium before you", but I don't get it? I really don't understand why they hold this in such esteem? It's almost as if it's the only thing they can get over us? I say good luck to them :-)
  6. This is the thing, there are so many clubs building new stadiums, they no longer give you a cutting edge over other clubs. It won't be long until there are no older stadiums left in the Country. You need to have some serious clout in this neck of the woods to make a difference. Crikey Steve Lansdowns has got shed loads more money than the Gash and look how difficult we found it to stay in (and compete) in the championship. Don't get me wrong, the new stadium will help the Gash, but they're competing against other clubs who have already established new stadia and are higher up
  7. Think they're already burned their bridges !!
  8. I've generally been patient with Baldock and I genuinely want him to do well but we can't keep missing these one on ones.We need to take our chances and be a lot more clinical.
  9. Burns should be in the match day squad regardless of comparing him to other players. He's the only attacking option we have with genuine pace.
  10. a bit like Alan Walsh scenario I'd imagine ?!
  11. What's interesting about those plans is that there is a standing area in the corner of the east end/williams, and the corner of the eastend/dolman, as well as standing along the front of the east end.
  12. Just a few extra random points I've thought of whilst reading this thread. - I thought the club wanted to put more executive boxes in at the back of the replacement East End, but it was the fans who turned their noses up and forced them out. - The rebuilt East End is going to have a couple more hundred seats than the Atyeo, and yet the roof height is going to be the same as the Dolman, which leads me to think that it's either going to be a steep gradient, or maybe they're leaving space for executive boxes in future? - All this talk of golf driving ranges reminded me about a t
  13. The club are on about relocating the away fans back to the Atyeo, so without any remedial work, there will be a reduction in capacity to segregate fans. I would imagine they'd install railings down the middle of the seating at some point to split the fans up, and seeing as the rake of the Atyeo is steeper than the east end, this may just work.
  14. This is where the club should look to take advantage by trying to get the residents of the "Nelson Mandella" flats behind the Dolman moved to AV !
  15. That's what needs to be taken up with the council/mayor. On the Cumberland basin, we had cars parking there for many many years and I didn't see one problem attached to it, but the PC brigade come along and double line everything saying it's unsafe. Sure I can understand circumstances where fire engines can't get around a bend for instance, so leave the double yellows just for these areas, not blitz the entire carriageways.
  16. parking at a new AV will be just as bad. Theres isnt going to magically be thousands of parking spaces. I think the plan for AV had spaces for 1000 cars which is just a few hundred more than AG.
  17. Really? I thought the museum was going down the KFC corner of the Williams and East End? That's what the artist's impressions show.
  18. Dunno, it's all quiet. I think he now owns the old Hirerite, hence why the club uses it, but not so sure about the Merc garage. Whilst I think about, who now owns the old Wedlock's pub site?
  19. I don't agree with this. Part of the enjoyment of football is going to different stadiums and seeing clubs in their natural spiritual environments. That's why out of town stadiums are so bland. Even though Newcastle is pretty much a brand new stadium, at least they've kept it smack in the middle of the town centre.
  20. A few points: - Wasn't the club on about re-opening the Ashton Gate railway station regardless of whether we remain at AG or go to AV. - Who now owns the old Cruickshanks Mercedes garage? That's quite a large area of land that could house a hotel/club shop/bar etc.. - When I mentioned to DaveL about buying the houses behind the EE or Atyeo, he quite rightly mentioned how expensive it would be, but there's always that old devil inside of me thinking that the club are buying them anyhow, but doing it on the sly to keep costs down.
