  1. Mods please ban this Charlie fellow. Many more like him and we will become irelephant.
  2. The Mem is not that big so with all those conferences and weddings going on I should think the panties must be a tight fit.
  3. I am told that Voluntary Liquidation is more likely because an Administrator has the primary duty of trying to keeping a business going which would not be advantageous if you are looking to get your loan repaid.
  4. I believe you will find Mr Roady is deliberately winding up our friends on the Rovers forum as a way of settling scores with some elderly gentlemen who have realised the money is about to run out and made the mistake of posting about it. Naturally, being a highly valued personal friend of the Al-Qadi family, he wishes to dispel such rumours until the Mem sale has been safely concluded.
  5. Rovers’ CEO (don’t titter) Martyn Starnes may be gardening next week.
  6. There may have been a mistake in translation from the original Arabic. Apparently Mr Al-Qadi does not have a cinema complex in his plan but he does have an inferiority complex.
  7. Announcement expected imminently from Dwane Sports to say they are purchasing a valuable tract of land at St Phillips, Bristol on which they will build a new 20 000 capacity multi-sports stadium. The development will also include a hotel, offices, restaurants, cinema complex and associated parking. The project is said to be financed through the support of the Bahrain Arab International Bank (BAIB) and the Kuwait Asia Bank.
  8. Something is afoot Eddie, and not the 3 1/2 inches claimed by critics of Rovers' President Wael Al-Qadi. But what of the presence in the United Kingdom of Mrs Sheikh Mohammed daughter of the late King of Jordan ? It is alleged she is here to be close to her lover a lovely man who loves football and has a sumptuous office in West London. The Princess is a billionaire in her own right and her left alone could buy Rovers a new stadium and provide a playing budget far in excess of that supplied to BCFC by Stephen Lansdown. Exiting times ahead for Rovers and, as usual, my source is likely to be highly reliable having previously predicted that Victor Meldrew's wife would leave him for Dr Finlay.
  9. Twas a hot afternoon Last day of June And the sun was a demon I saw Speedwell Sue Resplendent in blue And it set my truss steaming She was thirty one and I was seventy I knew nothing about deviation, she knew everything So I knelt behind her bound in leather string And wondered whether Rovers would sign Liam Scales from UCD
  10. Yes, all joking aside, Peter is a man who can “get things done” and he has been a great ambassador for sport in Bristol. But, as you imply, he knows little about football and regularly turned down my invitations to The Wembley Of The West (Eastville) in the fifties and sixties.
  11. I once saw Peter Brimble hammer Greville Smyth but no charges were ever brought.
  12. I used to try to write some mildly amusing stuff about the Rovers but this is way beyond anything my imagination could have conjured up. Post by wertongas on 3 hours ago 4 hours ago gashead333 said: So did the club refuse your money or are the away fans getting a roof? Can't put roof on away end as it would block views from Centenary stand, however offered money to get rid of those crap temporary toilets and put proper toilet block in under the new screen, plus a bar for away fans there will be more seating made available for larger away followings. Most amazing thing is that the club have discovered a building behind a fence in the top right hand corner of the stadium (club been there for 22 yrs without knowing this building existed) may use it for offices, food outlet and games area for kids, but it depends on whether it is worth spending the money if we are vacating the ground. Could bring in extra revenue.
  13. So someone is proposing to put in a planning application for a new football stadium on a site they don't currently own but which they would be able to acquire if Dwane Sports Ltd could be pressurised into "doing the right thing".
  14. I advised Mr Abdul Al Qadi to put his money behind Anthony Van Dyck but instead he chose to back a Dick
  15. Pity Val Doonican has passed on he did a catchy version of Walk Small about old Nicholas
