    Early leavers

    Left at 40 minutes. Didn't even make it into the stand. Put it down to a happy cider day
  2. 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/
  3. 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
  4. We need another statue of this great little man.
  5. 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.
  6. 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
  7. 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?
  8. That's unbelievable. Especially when you see on national TV players and managers kicking and throwing water bottles about.
  9. They're already treating us like aliens. Already made one complaint for one of them not wearing any I.D. If he asked me to do something and I didn't know who he was then it might cause an issue.
  10. Don't know if you have ever noticed the men in black doormen in the south corner singing section. Was told by the senior steward that they have more power than the stewards. So watch out... zapp!
  11. I personally think you're doing a great job as it is @phantom. Keep us informed on what's happening at the club and other information like trains, coaches etc etc which is great. just what we need thanks I did notice Matt Parsons is still listed as the SLO on the staff listing.
  12. I'm glad my eyesight was telling me the truth for a change. good jump mind
  13. I thought the first charlton fan jumped over the gate at the bottom of the steps. That's when the stewards grabbed him. Then his mates tried to help him out and they started punching so more stewards piled in. Perhaps the steward thought he was going to run on the pitch. Maybe @JulieH could confirm this.
  14. I agree great music. Long live the king
