  1. Take That also played both this year.
  2. Lovely to read all those comments about his teaching days. He used to sit just in front of us at Twerton Park, when he was writing for the Sunday Independent - was treated with reverence by fans when he arrived to take his seat, but was a very humble man. I meant to get my photo taken next to his statue before the TT concert, but with all the stress of not having our tickets with us, I forgot. Good to know that he has a street named after him in Dilton Marsh.
  3. I only noticed cones on Duckmoor Road itself when we got there.
  4. We parked just off of Duckmoor Road (Ashton Gate end) at 4.15 for Take That - spaces were going quickly though.
  5. Apologies - it made me chuckle, but I guess it's taken as read that I'm tasteless, given my team of choice!
  6. Maybe he's been brought in to sort out the new stadium?
  7. Probably done by spotty oiks, who'd had a sniff of the barmaid's apron. If they're caught, let them do some community service removing graffiti around Bristol.
  8. Pizza was Chicago Town - a quarter slice of a large pizza - I think it was £4, and was very nice. Choice of three cheese or pepperoni. As @Dollymarie said, queues were much shorter at the outlets in the concourse.
  9. £300k? Don't be so ridiculous - we'd let his contract run down, and then he'd go for free.
  10. Pasty huts only in the ground - it would be nice to have a bit more choice. The problem is not the quality of the pasties, but they tend to overheat them so the pastry is rock hard. Shame, because, as you say, they used to be top notch.
  11. That somehow manages to be embarrassing and hilarious at the same time!
  12. Strangely enough, the majority of your fellow forum members are able to engage in intelligent debate, and some witty piss taking, rather than just replying with snide comments.
  13. Yes, we had a good look around - nosey neighbours and all that. It all looked very impressive and professional, I can't remember seeing anything to find fault with to be honest - apart from missing the noise of flapping canvas! We encountered several stewards who also work on matchdays, and they were very helpful and friendly, despite our allegiance - had some good banter. Looking around the stadium during the concert, the words that popped into my head were, "In a galaxy far, far way ......" as there are light years between the standards of our respective grounds.
  14. Not sure why you always find it necessary to have a go. I was just making an observation. Burgers were sold out, but I bought a very nice piece of pizza in the downstairs concourse, which made a change from overcooked pasties.
  15. One thing I did find slightly strange on Tuesday evening was that the catering for the Upper Lansdown area consisted of drinks and sweets. I understand that this is geared up to cater for families, but don't the kids get hyper on all those E numbers? Could have made a killing on Tuesday if they'd stocked them with pre-prepared sandwiches and rolls.
  16. Oooh - sounds interesting. He's a great bloke, love his books, and have listened to him at a few book festivals/book launches - very entertaining.
  17. @Eddie Hitler has beat me to it with the answer!
  18. Ah, thanks - I didn't realise that. It will be interesting to see which club officials front it up at the AGM.
  19. Makes good click-bait though - and that's what it's all about these days. Wonder if Geoff Twentyman will try to dig out some info for his programme on Thursday?
  20. @Dave L - did you work with Mark Billingham on MM+her MM?
  21. Stewarding was the most friendly and helpful that I've experienced at a concert - gold stars all round.
  22. Thank you to everybody on here who gave advice and information about attending the Take That concert. We parked in one of the side streets off Duckmoor Road, quite near the stadium. Slight hiccup, as we then discovered that each of us had assumed the other one had printed the tickets off the e-mail - so no tickets! Stewards and the ticket office were very helpful in getting us in, and the people doing the bag searches were very friendly. We then somehow managed to be sitting in the wrong block, and were led out by two stewards and escorted to our correct seats - which were actually a sligh
  23. Ha ha - always had to be there early for the derby matches - those secret tunnels used to get rather crowded. Is there a tented village set up for refreshments etc - don't want to stray too far from my comfort zone.
  24. Thanks for that info, it's very useful as we have booked the park and ride from Brislington. Having seen these comments, we might drive instead. No idea what the on-street parking situation is these days (it's been a while since my last visit), hopefully with a Blue Badge we will be able to find somewhere not too far away.
