  1. It's so that they can say they've laid out the pitch.
  2. Serious question, why would you need a car park at St Annes station? Taxi rank perhaps. I would have thought the idea was to have it for local users, not park and ride, as I believe Saltford might need.
  3. It only remains for the pitches to be marked out and goal posts erected.
  4. I see you've got your own fan that stands in the corner.
  5. Obviously going in to see a load of crap.
  6. I don't mean to come over as pedantic but, is there a manual which lays out a clear path that governments are supposed to follow when a pandemic strikes? Surely any plan, is just that, a plan, it then changes shape depending on the information available and any changes cause by unforeseen things. I'm in construction and, we all start out with plans, then they're changed as the work progresses, when materials aren't available, or the labour suddenly changes, when someone says they want something done differently and when conditions change. I can't see that there could ever be a plan for what to do in these unprecedented times. The football authorities seem to be having difficulty forming a plan and reaching agreement to suggestions and they've had months to make suggestions and act. Just imagine if the Premier league and EFL had to keep the competitions running whilst finding equipment to keep the players and officials safe, while the paying public were forced to sit out the games in a lockout.
  7. I certainly know how quickly things can change. One minute in November your champions, before you know it, May comes around and you're not even promoted. Sorry I couldn't resist that.
  8. Then we are in agreement, promotion at any cost, hopefully to reinvest and improve for more success. Can I correct you on one small point, 76/77 was our first of four years in the top flight, 1980 being the last time. It wasn't our only year as your post makes it seem. We've been there nine years in total. Small time to some but, more than some could dream of. That's not a dig at your club by the way.
  9. I would do, I think that's what I was implying in my last paragraph. Looking at your post with the start of mine shown, looks like you're advising me to accept something I'd already accepted and with gusto.
  10. There are other options. 1. Utilize the squad to it's fullest, or have a smaller squad. It's all about how the assets are used. 2. Don't purchase excess players, use the academy and supplement that with experienced players. We seem to be doing both at present, building an academy and buying expensive players. Other clubs have progressed more than we have, as mentioned in previous posts, yet we just seem to progress by throwing shed loads of cash at the situation. Thank goodness we've got lucky with some of our sales. I think it's generally agreed that we've wasted loads of money on players in recent years which might have been better invested, I know, with hindsight.
  11. I thought I'd explained that in my final paragraph but, obviously not clear enough for you. CodeRed has given an even better explanation in the above post.
  12. If they're given the option, that's up to them, in my case that'd be about £135. Having the option might be nice for some people. I'm only commenting on this post, personally just waiting to see what happens, not intentionally rocking the boat.
  13. 100% guarantee that this season will be played out behind closed doors, that's if it has a conclusion. Therefore those that have paid in advance to see games that have not been played, should be refunded their outlay, pro rata. If they then decide to show the games live on TV, then everyone will have the chance to purchase or not, a package to see those games. At the moment and I understand it's difficult to know exactly what format the season will take, the club have money deposited in advance ticket sales that, those that have purchased could invest or earn interest on. Relatively small amounts individually I know but, collectively that represents a lot of money (£1-£1.5M which presumably the club are reinvesting and making profits on. I understand the argument that the club are losing money, that's not the point. Those investing in the club are making money elsewhere in order to invest in the club, so effectively that money is partly the money that people have paid in advance, for matches which will not be played.
  14. I've just made up a club statement, as follows: This is a statement for all those that have pre paid six months in advance, for their season cards for the proposed season 2020/21, starting in August 2020. All monies received in March as advanced payment for those season cards has been invested in the stock market by Hargreaves Lansdown, on behalf of those club investors. Should the whole or part of that proposed season be cancelled or amended, the profits from those investments will be paid in full to those investors of season cards, along with their initial investment. We know you have the interest of the club and community at heart, as do we, so we appreciate your understanding of these matters. Remember, investments can go down as well as up. Please look for official announcements on the Bristol Sport site for any updates.
