  1. No - i’m Very careful whose car I get in. To be fair particularly if they where blue and white quarters
  2. your right about it being a special event - we had just gone up under gary johnson and i saw no prospect of visiting the new wembley anytime soon - so my son and i got tickets. in the shrewsbury end of course. shrewsbury scored the first goal - you could feel the pain it was wonderful! didn’t last sadly but worth the money to see the new wembley
  3. I've not been in any park and ride anywhere so this might be stupid but At the moment i arrive at ashton gate about 1.15 for a 3pm kick off to park in an area within the RPZ - looking at the Long ashton park and ride web site it seems that the requirement is to use the park and ride so what's to stop me arriving at 1.15 as usual, paying to catch a bus to the centre (£4 return) coming straight back and then walking down to the gate. I would i think have fulfilled their contract? It sounds too simple as somebody would have come up with the idea before but i thought i'd ask
  4. I don’t know Steve Lansdown but my take on Bristol Sport is this is his monument and how this rich man gets close to immortality. He wants to be remembered in the way Harry dolman is but more so. So I don’t think he’ll sell up as soon as we (if we ever do) get into the premiership. Landsdown doesn’t need money and given his age I am sure it won’t be the motivation to sell if he ever does.
  5. I read somewhere on this thread about the tents and how long they’ve been there - so looked up Bristol planning portal and found the application 06/02073/F | Erection of additional temporary seating. (650 Seats) in the form of two stands - Stand B to the rear of Strathmore Road adjacent to the existing west stand, and Stand C attached to the existing south stand nearest Alton Road. | The Memorial Stadium Filton Avenue Bristol BS7 0AQ it was a temporary approval for 3 years from 2006 to 2009 can’t find any extension of time - anybody expert enough to know why it’s still there - if it’s because of subsequent planning applications allow it to remain the last one for the superstore runs out this year and if they haven’t submitted anything about stadium redevelopment by the summer I think the tents need to go!!
  6. I was a student in the very late 70’s and worked for Bristol stadium company on the tote at greyhound meetings and as a gateman for the rovers. I got an extra 50p for working the gate till half time and used the money to pay my entrance to Ashton gate the following week. I didn’t watch much of the football and tended to leave before the end of the game but lots of the gatemen worked both city and rovers back in the day.
  7. sorry if this is covered somewhere else on the site but I listened to the guy from UWE on radio Bristol who seemed to be committed to a scheme at the campus and he was very clear that a site with planning permission for a stadium was a very special commodity. Is it possible they could find another partner? is forest green rovers not looking for a new stadium and as this site is in (greater) Gloucestershire would they be interested in taking up the offer as forest green can't have a great local support - as nobody lives in Nailsworth long term this might suit their ambitions I think that truly would be the death knell of Bristol rovers.
  8. i think there is one other factor which has worked against the rovers for at least most of the last 40 years. migration to bristol of people who want to watch football like me. i came in 1973 the year of smash and grab but i chose city for better players, better facilities and better opposition . since then only for a couple of years have they had a better team and never the better ground the gap on all of this is getting greater with their owner looking like no billionaire - attracting newcomers to bristol to the rovers rather than city will be really hard unless their masochists
  9. I went with my grandson because it was Boxing Day and too far to wolves -bit weird the whole thing - atmosphere good but i find it quite weird that people are so enthusiastic about a complete embarrassment of a team - if the city were in their position the atmosphere would be toxic. For the city of Bristol and because they were robbed by the blue and white quarter I hope they stay up
