    Section 82

    I must admit I enjoyed it more in the Atyeo more than I do now.

    Section 82

    I think we should move the disabled section into more of the dolman stand. And shorten the ones in the south stand. More people will be able to sit down in the front of the south stand if they wanted to. Current disabled section in the picture above. changes to disabled section below. I know this will never happen but I am just winding the hours away.
  3. He seems to be getting it right at the moment.

    Section 82

    The pre match music before the game starts is doing my head in. Me and my mates have given up trying to start anything up before the match starts. Both the chemical brothers galvinize song. and the cringey seven nation army song are sucking the life out of the atmosphere. Seven nation army got old 10 games ago.
  5. One manager who has impressed me in the championship this season so far is Gary Rowett
  6. Lee Johnson can't delivery so....

    Early leavers

    Left at 40 minutes. Didn't even make it into the stand. Put it down to a happy cider day
  8. I had to edit my post when I realised this. Totally agree. I came across that video by accident when I was looking at some old videos of bristol harbourside railway line which got me thinking. https://bristolharbourrailway.co.uk/video/
  9. Why can't this line also be used to get fans to ashton gate on match days? it's all about getting cars off the road. Ofcourse it will need updating. After checking google I noticed the metro has gone over the line at the end of this video. So why couldn't they have incorperated the line all the way down to the fly over. P.s. after looking at the video it might have been quicker to walk
  10. We need another statue of this great little man.
  11. It sounds like a legal nightmare. It is a shame because wedlock pub was really good. Really surprised how quick they knocked it down, and the ship & castle. 2 pubs with great trade on match days. This paragraph below sounds like what has happened to the wedlock site. Found it from a PubCo pdf. WITH an unprecedented avalanche of pubs on the market, there is a worrying trend that has emerged, led by the big pub companies. Freeholds are being offered for sale – but with a catch; a covenant is put in place which means the building can never again be used as a pub! Enterprise Inns have been the biggest culprit, often when they have another pub in the vicinity. As they own over 8,000 pubs with ever-increasing vacancies, this activity is becoming increasingly common. Covenants are a loophole in the law; it is usually illegal to deliberately restrict free competition. Clearly, the pub company believes it can boost the trade and value at it’s remaining nearby pub. Examples locally include the Bell in Redcliff and the Red Cow in Bedminster. Both historic buildings and once vibrant, now after centuries of use as pubs any future entrepreneur will be denied the Bristol CAMRA Pubs Campaigning Group Pub company could close your local for good! Scandal of the restrictive covenant opportunity to restore their fortunes (as we have seen is possible at other pubs in both areas recently with the Cornubia and Seven Stars in Redcliff and several pubs in Bedminster). The issue has become noticed in Parliament. MP Greg Mulholland submitted a Commons motion calling on the government to stop this activity. The member of the All-Party Parliamentary Beer Group said that the practice has resulted in a decline in local community pubs, saying: “The practice of slapping restrictive covenants on a pub is a scandal and must be stopped. “As well as being so clearly anti-competitive, this means that faceless pub companies are permanently closing people’s locals against their wishes simply to further their own commercial ends.” We can only hope that the Government listens.
  12. Does anyone know what has happened to the Wedlock pub site? Has anything been planned for it yet? If I had the money I'd develop it into a memorial garden. Couple of interesting links below. http://www.englandfootballonline.com/TeamPlyrsBios/PlayersW/BioWedlockWJ.html https://www.bristolpost.co.uk/special-features/england-international-caps-legendary-bristol-897473
  13. I did notice the speakers in the dolman looked quite old compared to the new ones in the south stand. Don't know if it makes any difference?
  14. That's unbelievable. Especially when you see on national TV players and managers kicking and throwing water bottles about.
