  1. With so many serious injuries requiring surgery to re-align, repair etc he's bound to be in a bad way and in intensive care. Still very much in the "corrective" stage. Soon the recovery will begin and I have little doubt that he will recover. But whether the injuries he has sustained will prevent him from returning to the very top level he was, is a whole different matter. From all accounts it really was a very bad crash. I wish him all the best and hope he can beat the odds and make a 100% recovery.
  2. For the Rod Stewart gig there was Chinese style food available in the form of sweet and sour chicken with noodles for £8, or a veggie option for £7.
  3. Same here via the YouTube app on my newish TV. Couldn't decide whether it made watching it better or worse. No problems though for the Europa League final on Wednesday. Strange.
  4. I'm very much in the old git category, but am envious of you seeing Arcade Fire, I think they are excellent. The way the gigs have gone this year is encouraging and, like you, I wonder if it will lead to more top bands/artists coming here.
  5. Managed to get it to work!
  6. You must remember this one. It was played every home game when we were facing relegation. We still went down! "Knights of Cydonia" (Can't get a link to work!)
  7. Just about to post the same. Spectators look a long way back all round the pitch!
  8. @RedM You mentioned lack of 4g on the pitch area, was the usual stadium wifi not on? It was for the Rod Stewart gig.
  9. We don't have them yet! No.
  10. Blimey I thought they only travelled south as far as WSM
  11. I guess not, nor sat in the park! In fact anywhere in the immediate area.
  12. Plenty of refreshments outside and inside the ground. There are security inspections at the car park entrances which have temporary barriers and entrances set up. Followed by ticket validation and body scans in the same areas. These are the actual entrances to the event. Once you are through these you are in the venue. The doors to the stands are open so you can go into the concourse and back out again whenever you want. What you can't do is to leave the venue, i.e. go back out through the entrances which have been set up and which are passed through to get in.
  13. For the Rod Stewart gig there were plenty of on street spaces in the Coronation Rd area at 5pm. Depends how close you need to be. Duckmoor Rd area worth considering as well I would think. The key point is to get there early. Just like for the Championship games, not that you'd know that of course, .
  14. Yes, no lights in S stand or Dolman. Could see the vomitory lights on in Lansdown (sorry @Dollymarie) but no others. in fact I was moaning about it to my wife that it was much darker everywhere, than for an evening game. So much for H&S. Quite a few folk were struggling up and down S Stand steps because of darkness, unfamiliarity with the ground and plentiful supplies of booze everywhere, oh and high heels I am informed! (I didn't wear mine)
  15. Traffic in from Frenchay was like any evening game. Just under an hour via the centre/Cumberland Basin. Got there around 5, plenty of on street parking. Getting home much easier. Finished around an hour later than a game so less traffic generally . But unlike at football, the vast majority of those there seemed to have not travelled by car and were therefore milling around outside looking for their coach/shuttle/bus transport I guess. Also a lot walking along Coronation Rd. SS Great Britain drop off/collection seems a reasonable plan, though I didn't travel via Cumberland Rd.
