  1. In the Bricklayers now. Not strictly an away pub, no colours are OK, no thatchers either, just Stowford
  2. Hi Tommy The agreement is WMP pay costs. The legal advice provided to the individuals was to settle. The financial risk to each individual was considerable. I respect their decision. Cheers Stu
  3. It is definitely all about risk and reward. Some of the potential court costs quoted were eye watering and the individual is personally liable. Refusing an out of court settlement might work against you. A court settlement, if indeed you secure a win, might even be less, and you have all the risk still. The advise was to accept the settlement. In my view, these guys showed there mettle in getting this far. Stu
  4. I personally cannot comment on amounts of compensation, as this is confidential. I have not even told the Supporters Club & Trust board. It would be up to the claimants to disclose if they so wished. These were individual claims grouped together to form a civil action, given that they all had a common issue to pursue. I am not aware of any criminal action being brought.
  5. Yes, compensation for those involved, plus having spoken with them, the complete vindication that they had done nothing wrong. For the record, WMP will not formally admit liability and, therefore, apologise. They didn't fancy a court case, which would have been public, risky and expensive. This was not without financial risk for the claimants either, even with the Club & Trust backing, so the same applies to them. Having been made an offer, there is no guarantee they would have secured a ruling had they pressed ahead with a court case. The reason the Supporters Club & Trust got involved was to help right the wrong for the claimants, but also try to bring about a change in the way police forces (especially WMP) use these powers in the future. From speaking with Avon & Somerset Police and the FSA, our view is that policing and the use of these powers is changing for the better. To quote Amanda Jacks: "It should also be acknowledged that WMP have totally shifted their approach to football policing in recent years and were the first police force in the country to have a Football Policing Independent Advisory Group comprised of supporter reps from clubs across their region." It may not be down to just this incident, however, we believe it played a part. Stu
  6. Finally, a result. https://www.bristolcitysupporters.org/west-midlands-police-back-down/
  7. Hey, nothing wrong with Thatcham
  8. Please keep any speculation on the outcome of this action off this forum. The run up to a court case is always a sensitive time and all too easily jeopardised. 1bristolcity. Unbelievable. Just unbelievable.
  9. Case management court hearing set for 18 September. Court dates usually focus the mind.
  10. Imagine joining a bar queue just before 3.30pm on Sunday. I wonder what you will get charged for a pint as you get to the front? Is this concourse only or does it include the fan park? I suspect it will be a bit chaotic and flexible the first time as tills get adjusted, with no further discounts on the £4 before 3.30pm and then £4.80 (for cider) with discounts applied after 3.30pm to make it £4.32. It probably apples to all bars as well, just not communicated as such.
  11. Sad day. What a great character, so funny and welcoming. We will all miss him.
  12. I suspect you are right about bringing things in to line as a sports venue. It doesn't take into account though the more reasonably priced options in the area. Fans will still drink at the Gate, just maybe quite as much. Time will tell.
  13. Indeed. Ryan Corrigan is coming to our next meeting on 7th August. I doubt that we will get much of Mark Ashton's time before the close of the transfer window (neither would many fans want us to distract him I suspect!). Also on the case about beer/cider price increases! Cheers
  14. If you mean the legal case. There is a case management hearing in London in September. It's an administrative process to ensure everything is in place and agreed before setting trial dates etc. At last, a bit of progress. It will be almost 4 years to the day since it happened.
  15. Yes. we are just trying to track down the actual season cards before publicising! For anyone that doesn't know the background to this: https://www.bristolcitysupporters.org/supporters-launch-fans-funding-fans-of-the-future-scheme/
