  1. That's often the way when you get to billionaire level; it's no longer about spending the money because that's impossible so instead you look to where you can have a positive impact upon the world. The Lansdowns' is to make Bristol a centre of sporting excellence which is a decent aim. If I won £2m on the lottery then it's "Wahey!" but if I won £200m then I'm edging into billionaire territory with more money than I can possibly spend and a feeling that I ought to do some good with it. Neither will anyway happen.
  2. Dwane Developments UK accounts finally filed. Absolutely zip - dormant company accounts showing £1 of shares and £1 in the bank. This is to 31 December 2019 so over a year ago. https://find-and-update.company-information.service.gov.uk/company/11253528/filing-history
  3. I would prefer the appointment of:
  4. Please no! Can't get away from this on the news. Laughing at Rovers 3-2-1 begin.
  5. I'd say the intention of making a combined group of sports teams with top facilities and training based upon the model of Barcelona is absolutely philanthropic. This Bristol Sports concept isn't however a vision to which I subscribe owing to my interest being restricted to the City first team. I actually don't think it works at all because the sports are so different in their business models; it seems as ill-conceived as John Lewis' stated intention to branch out into social housing.
  6. This has however been the case since ?1996 when in common with most professional clubs we split the club and ground into separate companies so that club insolvency did not necessarily mean the loss of the ground. The difference now is that the holding companies above those two companies also own other sports clubs. The football club is receiving far more money from the Lansdown family in the form of equity investment than it would receive if it had full receipt of the income from Ashton Gate so I don't see a cause for complaint there. The question of how wisely that money
  7. To a degree yes. There are however some big positives: The redevelopment of Ashton Gate The training ground The lack of external debt You only have to look at Derby to see that we could be in a much worse position if we didn't have genuinely wealthy owners with the best interests of the club at heart. That doesn't invalidate your points but there are big upsides to set against them.
  8. What the hell is that then? I moaned several times about multiple threads about BCFC women's football on the main forum but since they have been restricted to a single thread for the last ?six months I have had no complaints and simply ignore that single thread; neither reading nor posting upon it. I also have zero interest in modern jazz but don't feel the need to make a post to tell everyone that.
  9. That rings a bell, I think the auditors, one of the big four, did the electronic filings for my last company.
  10. Unprofessional. Which is indicative of an under-resourced back office. I'm not expecting any big revalations within them that they're trying to keep secret so there should be no reason for delay; unlike a couple of years ago across the main suite of BRFC accounts where they wanted to hold back the results. That's if they're filing them manually. Surely even they aren't doing that?
  11. Dwane Developments UK, the presumed owner of the Colony / training ground land, accounts are overdue. This is becoming a habit. https://find-and-update.company-information.service.gov.uk/company/11253528
  12. Yes that's right. Over the last few decades we've purchased promising players from lower league clubs and generally one in three of them come good and the others are moved on. I don't see signing him as a mistake; it was the kind of calculated gamble you need too make because you will otherwise be paying £5m for the proven article every time and we can't afford to do that.
  13. Or rather: "Why on God's good earth would DH resign today if we lose?"
  14. Yes, he has many good qualities but his appointment boiled down to his being the easy option. Unlike someone like Cotts who was the difficult option, got people's backs up within the club hierarchy, and won us promotion at a canter.
  15. I fully expect that I was amongst them.
