Isn’t it x number of years to comply with all seater unless you can prove you are relocating (and perhaps redeveloping), that’s how Brentford has maintained terracing for years I think. So every season we would see Wally submit a pie in the sky pie dream hoping ( knowing) it will get rejected.

But yes, good point there is no incentive to get promoted as they couldn’t sustain themselves, barely can now.

To be fair, Brentford are paying for and actually building something. Can't see the mob in BS7 doing either.

Looks like something built by Bear Grylls.

I always thought that it was amusing that they sold season tickets for “Row M”, because there wasn’t a “Row M”. 

I’ve only just realised that there’s not even a row H, I, J, K or L either..! 😂😂

They didn’t even pay for this thing that clearly belongs at a Scruffs event, the sponsors forked out for it, along with the screen (provided by SL) aswell.

I realise that, but their ground has been allowed to retain the terracing for years, that was my point. Yes I know they had every intention, but there were a lot of difficulties. The Gas have no intention and only have difficulties 😀

Having plans usually helps! Although Wally can’t disclose anything due to confidentiality agreements 😂

You have to say that, because of the ramshackle piecemeal developments around the ground, it's starting to look like their old spiritual home. If I remember correctly, Eastville had six different roof structures, similar to the old rugby ground of today. Not many clubs could boast having so many different structures. Makes them quite unique really.

Glanced through the pictures, and there are a lot of them, and saw one team photo with Bobby "Shadow" Williams in it. Had forgotten he went to the gas after leaving us and going to Rotherham.

True. I think they thrive on people making assumptions. 

Like assuming that Fanta will be dispensed, when they order a Fanta. 

Or when someone asks for a packet of crisps.. they just assume that they’ll be in date. 

Like handing over the keys to your club, to a lovely man with a nice watch... they just assumed that he had some money.

Oxford had several at the old Manor Ground. 

I’m not that any of them were actually tents... but a mish mash of different stands, certainly.

Like when they handed over money to the last regime to build them a roof over the Filton avenue end. They assumed the club wouldn't increase the entrance fee due to improved facilities. hahahahahahaha

They’ve progressed since, passing tickets back through the fence to their mates. Their moaning like fvck about Wally not spending any money yet won’t even pay for themselves to get in.

To be fair I don't think the BBC Did them any favours when they dispatched Garth Crooks West with his pith helmet, to interview Wael.. 

"You can buy any club in the prem (he fawned) why Bristol Rovers?" 

Well, not any club he joked, 

You got that effing right...

Given that most of the shots and defensive clearances end up in Row Z, I suspect that they start with Row Z and work down. So they would get to about Row S before they ran out of space.

How do they get away with putting up these temporary structures over such long periods. They are designed for one off events like the Bath and West show etc not permanent sporting stadium stands.

I suppose, by definition, Rovers’ home ground is only ever expected to be “Temporary”, until they up root and find somewhere else to squat for the next decade or two. 

It it the equivalent of someone wanting an extension added to their house and just cementing the tent pegs into their driveway..!

I counted 163 seats . That is the most embarrassing stand I’ve ever seen. The premium seats in the middle have 2 posts in the way and not even a row H . Tinpot rovers

Their only intention is to not pay for any stadium. Always has been. They have never been knocked back in their plans (planning permission) to build a stadium; they've just never been able to afford it.

Planning permission not needed for farm buildings?

 

*edit, they'll be ok to build a new stadium at the 'Colony' then!

Isn't it amazing that we can build that massive roof on the Lansdown stand with zero restricted views and they have a 163 seater tent with FIVE posts in the way.

 

EDIT:  Just realised why those seats are more expensive, because the posts are in the way you don't have to watch it all.

Serious question, I'm confused why they went through the expense of putting this stand up for just 163. 

Surely the space it has replaced could have catered for a larger number?

So they have actually decreased their capacity building this

They'll be telling everyone that they've gone from being 60 % full to 65% and point to it as progress....rather than because of them reducing the amount of inbreds they can get in there.  Because they're loyal and prowed.

Yes this is true. Capacity has reduced due to this contraption. Doesn't matter anyway as they never sell out and don't need the extra Capacity.  It just allows them to charge 163 people a fiver more and makes it look as though they are trying to improve things.
