  1. But saving greatly on the cost of security courier for cash to be banked and any counting of said cash that is done. They won't worry about losing a few customers who are happy to use their debit card to get money from the hole in the wall but then refuse to use it to pay for a drink.
  2. Link on main page under 'More from Bristol Sport'. Looks like the link has been pulled and nothing happened when I clicked the link for more info. Looks like this is going to happen soon though.
  3. I'm sure it is not that simple and there is more to it particularly re catering and hospitality. My point was regarding booking bands etc which some people seem to think is down to Bristol Sport. The promoter definitely takes all the risks. He pays for the venue, pays the band / security etc and sells the tickets. Any loss on ticket sales is a 'hit' for the promoter. The promoter would pay insurance in case of cancellation. Bristol Sport should take out insurance (annually ?) against loss of revenue from parking / concessions and merchandise should an event be cancelled.
  4. Cardiff fans in meltdown, Swansea fans pissing themselves at this appointment.
  5. Bristol Sport does not book the bands. It hires out the stadium to the promoter, who then books the bands and sells the tickets etc. Bristol Sport is therefore guaranteed a set amount (guesstimate £500,000) whether 32,000 or 32 people turn up.
  6. According to BBC Sport the EFL are concerned that the valuation of Hillsborough was close to 60 million when West Ham's ground was sold for 40 million and Reading 25 million both of which are in or close to the capital where property prices are at a max. Also checking if stamp duty was paid and another concern that the deal is financed over 8 yrs when money paid for property is normally immediate.
  7. Saw them 12 times with Freddie. Wouldn't cross the road to see them now (yes I appreciate things evolve and Brian and Roger are great musicians but they are just a classy tribute act these days).
  8. No team , in all four divisions, has taken more points (36) away from home than us in this calendar year. Tbf to Man City they have played fewer games.
  9. So, what exactly have the Lansdowns ever done for us ? The picture from the Football League review was taken from almost the exact spot I was standing for the Leeds cup game.
  10. Forest at home next so a good chance to cement a top 6 place.
  11. As one of the Williams Naysayers I will gladly eat a large slice of humble pie and admit I was totally wrong. watching from behind the goal yesterday Williams was immense and was my MOM although there were several candidates. Against Wigan I kept hearing a player shouting and yelling at colleagues above the noise of the crowd. It was Williams constantly talking to those around him. Yes he has been a very astute signing and will make a big difference between now and the end of the season Well done Lee and team.
  12. I live over the border. Just got on the train will be in Cardiff in 50 mins. COYR
  13. Quite a few tickets available in the home end, near the away fans.
