On that note, does anyone know how much the Atyeo cost to rebuild in 1994? I cannot seem to find the data anywhere online.

I think I've found their two tier Lansdown stand concept, only due to budget constraints imagine this with no front, back or side panels.

They definitely need a 20-24k stadium, it's obvious when you are getting 7k per week.Good luck with building a couple of stands like the Lansdown and an Atyeo stand for £10 - £15 million.

There is no way in this World a City fan has walked in that ground earlier and said what that buffoon quoted. Not in a million years.

They really are living on a different planet.

If you look online, they can do wonders with scrap pallets.

I know Glos Rd lefties/Rose are the problem,as is parking.But there is a huge area still at Mem for development if funding could be found.

 

Glos Rd lefties/Rose ain't the only problem ,********.........................there's a little thing called CASH  ?

Are these lads in Northern Ireland creating bonfires for the battle of the Boyne or practising for some sort of Gas construction apprenticeship scheme?

If I took out the seats from a Ford Escort and replaced it with seats from a Ferrari I’d still have a Ford Escort. 

Likewise their shithole will remain a shithole regardless of how they tart it up. 

Isn't it amazing how every 15er seems to know a City fan who is highly complimentary about some aspect of their club? 

It's like a younger brother, desperately seeking the approval of his older sibling. Bless.

This afternoon I met up with my best mate who is a shithead for a drink along Glos rd. 

We popped to the Mem as I wanted to go to our shop to buy a shirt, but it was closed when we got there.

Anyway we had a quick look around the Mem and he said while its a dated stadium it has such a unique character and feel about it.

We both agreed that if we could build a Lansdown 2 tier like stand where the Blue stand is 7- 10k and a 
Atyeo sized stand where the south stand is then then we could keep the West stand and Blackthrone end as they are and have a great looking ground that could hold 20-24k.

I know Glos Rd lefties/Rose are the problem,as is parking.But there is a huge area still at Mem for development if funding could be found.

If planning was granted how much would that construction cost? £10-£15m. I hope its been looked at.

It must have been quite a drink these lads went for!? As for the ‘stadium’ I can only imagine said City fan was doubled over, roaring with laughter, his eyes wet with tears of joy, shaking his head and repeatedly slapping his thigh, saying he’d never seen anything quite like it. This was then positively interpreted as reference to uniqueness of character and feel.

Build a stand comparable with the Lansdown and the Atyeo for £10-15M? Double it and they're still short plus THEY DON'T HAVE THE MONEY! I would imagine it would cost £10M just to build the Atyeo nowadays, if not more. 

This is more suited to their budget. Absolutely useless as it's a jigsaw puzzle but at least they could claim to be building a ground.

OK, come on............would the person who is this fella's Ted 'Mate' please own up on here?  I shan't hold my breath for a confession from one of our own though.  

Our cat had an imaginary friend that lived in the lounge ceiling.  Daft mog would suddenly stare into space and start almost 'barking' at something only he could see.  Mind you, when my lad and his mates used to spill vodka on the floor,  Oliver was more than happy to ignore the Five Second Rule and slurp it up. 

I just wonder if icegas has the same domestic habit........hence the 'mate' thing?

The Ashton Gate redeployment cost approx  £45m - £50m. That was basically 2 new stands (Lansdown and South), extra seats at the front of the Dolman plus roof extension and a media centre So, yes, at least £20m for the Lansdown.

We must remember that the £50m included demolition costs. These would not apply to Gas unless the tent pegs were embedded too deep into the ground.

I was the same with red. I have tried to get away from being so obsessed because it really is pretty stupid. I agonised over wearing a tie with a bit of red in it to the Rovers sponsors do and in the end decided to wear it thinking no one would notice anyway. We one of the main prizes so there were a few pics of me and Wael on social media and I got absolutely slated by mates for wearing it!

Well there we have it, @Miah Dennehy is actually bordering on being labelled a normal human being, a Sag with actual mates is as rare as rocking horse shit. 

Your a good egg tho Miah even though your one of them.

Edit: How did the Sponsors take it when you flicked over to Babestation again?

Bristol Post’s view on the video.....

 

Wael al-Qadi reminds Gasheads of his passion for Bristol Rovers

F@vk me 🙈

No wonder they think of themselves as the worlds greatest set of supporters with such passion shown from that Lovely bloke at the top all the way down to the loyal and true masses. Imagine the passion coming from Wally if they’d of beaten a team better than one from the Irish 3rd division. With the incredible amount of support that followed them over it has also now been confirmed that supporters from Bohemians, Shamrock Rovers and St Patrick’s have all been converted to Sags and all hate the Shit and love the Sags after being constantly pestered with ‘who you prefer us or the shit?, we took 40k to the non league final, and were the bestest loyalist fans in the world, and 82’s.

Dublin hates the shit.

As someone who once took similar advice as being a tempting offer I made the mistake of searching "lemon party". Oh my word, do not search for this.  I am not joking here.

Ever since I have taken these warnings at pure face value and will cetainly not be searching for blue waffle.
