From Forum this is superb! Tour of the stadium?!

 

A monthly direct debit similar to the 50/50 run like the postcode lottery would be a good idea. Also I love the open day but as a one off as raising funds why not charge £1 entrance fee? Other clubs have paid tours of their stadium I know ours isn't great but it could be a way of raising money especially if there were players available to speak to and have photos with. Limit the number per tour so that the fans feel they get a personal experience

Charge people to raise funds but then limit the number of people..?!

I don’t think this bloke is going to be winning The Apprentice anytime soon..!

Limit the number?They could all go at the same time and still get a personal experience!

I just had a thought. Supposing one of our blue chums were to run out of bog roll and the only place that had any was Sainsbury`s.

Good point. 
For anyone in desperate need of supplies - don’t be disheartened by the rows of empty shelves. 
 

There are bound to be numerous trolley fulls of discarded shopping left near the checkouts by the little scamps..!

They have started looking at fund raising options over on Gaschat, bless 'em.

I have no idea how much they think their players earn, but they seem to think players would take a pay cut to help others out.

It won't be a case that these players have pension contributions or mortgage payments to make based on their own incomes. Course not.

One things for sure that the most expensive tickets in the east and west stand are all season ticketed and sold out every year, so 'hopefully' we might have enough prepaid income to keep us going.... Again, just an assumption...."

Where the hell did this plank get the notion that their ST holders is more than most clubs average attendances ?

https://www.soccerstats.com/attendance.asp?league=england3

They have a relatively low amount of ST holders as I understand it although that is an assumption.

I would assume, and it is just an assumption, that they have around 4k ST holders.

Just an assumption of course.

And that would keep them going ? Losing 60k per week isn't keeping going, its hanging on.

We have absolutely nothing to worry about because our Commercial Director has said that Mr Wael Al-Qadi will cover all staff wage costs from his personal resources for as long as it takes. 

He'll be skint in two weeks.

And Sainsburys will happen and the UWE will happen and the Fruit market will happen and the training ground will be built, etc. etc.   And the deluded fools keep believing it.

Given how stocks and shares are going, he's probably only worth about £4 now Bert!

Strangely enough that isn't the case SJ.

Based on my own  geopolitical research it appears there are forces currently at work which aim to keep the Kingdom of Jordan stable. While stock markets around the globe collapse the shares of the Arab Jordan Investment Bank have lost comparatively little and in the last month the Jordanian Dinar has strengthened by about 10% against the pound.

A New World Hors D'oeuvre is emerging and, who knows, BRFC may become a prominent part of it ?

During the Coronavirus crisis we are being encouraged to go for a walk in a field.

Will R*vers open up their state of the art training facility to the public?

Just been looking at the Visit Bristol website.They have a student bucket list section of things to do and see in our great city. Under the heading " Watch a sports match" they have the following:

Join the local fans to cheer on Bristol Bears rugby team and Bristol City FC at Ashton Gate Stadium, or if cricket is more up your street then watch Gloucestershire Cricket play at their home ground just round the corner from the independent shops, pubs and restaurants of Gloucester Road.

Is this just Visit Bristol being kind to students by excluding them or do they not know of their existence.

Maybe it's a 'Marty, Marty' back to the future thing? If they take these students back to the 60's by sending them to the mem, all of them start to fade away.
