Oh come on, he must have got mixed up surely? We know the Gas consistently take pictures and video with our ground in the background, it must be easy to get confused. I love how the article says "Its canvas tents and open terraces can often split opinion" Split? Who are the odd dozen people who don't think it's a shit pit?

Wow, how disappointed is he going to be when he turns up and realises they don't actually play at Ashton Gate! :laugh:

They should invite him down early and take him on a tour of their training ground too.......................... oh wait..

the only thing that splits is my sides when laughing at everything they do - anyone who thinks that the Minimal is a 'magnificent stadium' (and using the word 'stadium' must contravene the Trades Descriptions Act surely), should seek medical advice as they are not quite in total possession of their faculties)

Why isn't it a place they can call theirs after owning it for more or less 20 years, basically a quarter of a century? After they stole the ground (would have loved a forensic financial investigation) halted all further developments, didn't maintain properly, and almost caused the rugby club to go extinct with pure greed and short termism, surely it's all of their own making. 

They have had a prime asset for so long and have now squandered it all. I have no real sympathy.

Too right.

Arthur Holmes in the dock the ***.

"They're a strong team, they've got a great crowd and a magnificent stadium and pitch.

"With all that, it should be a really good game."

This is just standard bull that all managers spout before a match to show 'respect' for the opposition and a caveat in case they lose.

And to be honest it is the manager of Accrington with a fraction of their money and fans.

If it was Pep Klopp or whatever his name is saying that it would have more clout.

I just think the guy does sarcasm at a top level.

He must be laughing his head off that this made the ‘ paper ‘.

“Magnificent stadium”?!? What are you babbling on about, man! What’s his yardstick for impressive buildings - has he just come back off holidaying in the Bahamas or summat?

Accrington Stanley's ground.  Magnificence is relative.

Maybe a good idea for the driver to check he's been given the correct postcode for his satnav!

Down at the gate now.  The Accrington team bus has just arrived amidst a state of panic and confusion.

If Accrington turn up at Ashton Gate at 1.30pm we'll understand his mistake. 

 

The driver won't have any problems as he has carefully watched all their promotional videos ...

Tedium or Staydumb, would be more accurate than "Stadium".

I’ve just read Hollowhead’s latest column in the Post.

His latest rambling is that clubs should be mandated to keep their managers for the duration of their contract, no matter what.

What an absolute crackpot. I have no idea why anyone gives this guy any airspace (in more ways than one!).

Will the EFL introduce a "fit & proper person" requirement for Managers? I can think of several who'd fail!

Bristol City ladies could be the 2nd best supported club in Bristol. Let’s see if they get more than the rovers had against Cheltenham. :laughcont:

That'll please them. 

At least they can say they have more fingers though.

No but he used it as the basis of a "joke".

If you can't see that's crass, I'm afraid the issue is yours, not mine.

To be fair anywhere up to 35’000 people could have died from the impact of Chernobyl yet nobody queries that or the memes that have appeared from the 3.6 roetgen line.

They give him airspace to be a contrarian and a "character". He's just delivering on his contract. Ignore.
