This is going to be Edward Ware, former director of Edward Ware homes, That went bankrupt and I believe was banned from being a director of a company for a time, as a result. Fortunately, he wasn't made to suffer too much financially, as his Mrs found £5m down the back of the sofa to carry on with her own property company, as she was a real property expert. It might also include Nick Higgs who is reportedly still owed a substantial sum from the original sale of BRFC to Dwayne Sports. 

I don't like the talks going on with BCC as they will bend over backwards to help that lot out. Just as they did when changing the planning committee on the day of the meeting to decide the application for the redevelopment of the rugby ground. Six councillors were removed from the committee who'd previously voiced their concerns about that application, to be replaced by other councillors friendly towards the application/club.

BCC previously promoted the idea of using the fruit market site as a joint stadium for both clubs. As we have ours now, they'll say it's only fair that Rovers can compete on an even footing and bend a few rules, re access, travel arrangements, noise and light pollution, granting of long leases with peppercorn rent, on the adjoining council owned depot for hotel/housing developments which will go towards financing.

There are many hurdles to cross here, none less than agreeing a figure with the Al Quadi family for their money back, plus interest/profit on their original property deal. Then actually getting money out of BRFC for rent on a £40-£60m build. Someone is going to take a hit in this plan. Probably the new stadium company formed to see the project through, that gets loans on the value of land, who will then go bankrupt, leaving BRFC to pick up a newly built stadium at a knock down price from the liquidator, with the financiers ultimately taking a hit and writing off £40m. some people are good with shares and when to acquire and sell them, and the club has history in forming new companies and obtaining property when someone goes to the wall. Seen it all before with that lot. Slippery as hell.

Yeah, I'm sure Ed Ware will be involved. His missus is a property barrister, not a developer though. 

I have to say on the face of it the project seems viable and Rovers will be better off without the useless Wael and co.

I don't know why we should panic even it was a viable proposition which it obviously isn't.

A very brief scan of the figures reveals that.

Seems to me that this consortium is after a valuable piece of land for development and it aint the Fruit Market.

Best of luck with that Pikeys :sub:

According to one Sag, Wally could well be in abit of bother for leaking their latest pie in the sky deal, makes it sound like some sort Mafia Ganster shit going on...

They are a club like no other 😂😂


“We have VIPs flying in from overseas tonight intent on saving the deal. It may be too late, and if so, he should leave this Country. “

Quoting my source. 

Up to you whether you believe it or not. I’m waiting to see how true it is.

Good old Wally - the whole fruit market has absolutely nothing to do with him at all, but well done for finally revealing something to everyone without the "these things take time" copyrighted catchphrase.

They are quite far along in the talks with the council though, I just hope he hasn't alerted any big property developers who could build quite a few houses on there, seeing as we have a massive issue with the lack of housing...... Come on Wimpey, Barratt, Persimmons, Redrow go and make an offer.....

But the Council is surely compelled to act in the best interests of the ratepayers of Bristol as a whole and if the owners of the market don't elect to sell or demand an excessive price surely the ombudsman would be called in firstly if bcc abused it's powers by a cpo and secondly by syphoning money intended for the infrastructure around temple quarter/arena area towards making a new stadium accessible for a club that already owns a stadium too large for its average attendances the past 40 years.

I hope that this gets a rough ride and the gas *** Rees is exposed for what he is. Hopefully he will explain his relationship with the Filton arena site.

If the Council give this the OK then something very dodgy will have gone on. The more you look at it the less viable it appears. Terrible position with little in the way of transport links. There is an ambition to make the City carbon neutral so why would they consider a project that will attract more people and more traffic into the centre of town. It's not just the football, any large stadium built would also have to double up as an arena to be financially viable, is there really a call for another stadium for large events? Is there need for more conference space? Are offices really the future of business? 
All those questions and more should stop this project at the pre-planning stage, The family don't care whether it's possible, they will get their money back (probably just about) and the new owners will take the flak when it all falls to pieces.

He won't come out and explain anything at all, the bloke is a clueless, useless buffoon imo. Hope he gets put under some serious pressure though about the whole situation.

No doubt 'predictive text' scuppered his post and altered 'picnicking' to 'panicking'  no worries Mr Gashead, we knew what you meant, predictive text messes with the best of us sometimes..

I seem to recall they were claiming on Sagchat that a takeover was imminent last October. Naturally nothing happened.

I sometimes wonder if these things are invented to distract the deluded fans from the reality of their position. Not that they seem to recognise it anyway.

The whole fruit market thing is nothing more than a excuse not to spend any serious money on redeveloping the mem.

In other news, first home game of the season tomorrow.  I’m predicting about 1,000 from Wycombe and about 8,000 fewers.

Good chance of it being called off I would have thought with all those temporary structures around the place.

The site is awful, there is already a cinema with ample parking (shops, take outs etc), the Temple Meads site nearby is about to get hotels and conference centre/s. It's not close enough to traffic links to be practically useful, but close enough that the expense of closing such a busy route down to extend / improve links might not seem costs effective. Worse, does the city need more offices or another large multi use stadium ( Ashton Gate, the new Flyers venue, Colston Hall, New Filton arena) I just cannot see the demand.

 

What the City needs is housing and this site surely would be more profitable for the owners if they sold it to a housing company (if they want to sell at all).

How would you describe a person that drives a very small car, with a very small rear windscreen? Add to that, the person then obliterates the rear view by sticking a giant sticker (350mm diameter) dead centre of the rear window. I'll let you guess what that sticker was.

Well, Ali Durden did say on PW that the consortium were `property acquisition based` but made pains to add that there would be `a significant football presence` involved.

So, a group of property developers headed up by Peter Ridsdale it is then.

What could possibly go wrong?

I don't think anything will go wrong from the developers point of view.

Buying out the Al Qadis will give them the Mem to develop - they won't be bothered about the football club.

The fruit market, if obtained, which is very doubtful, will be developed for housing, much more lucrative than running a tinpot little football club. 

End game is getting close for the deluded few and the idiots don't realise it.

Oh absolutely. It`s all about the land and FTG, no-one cares about them. This `takeover` is nothing more than a way in to enable prime land to be acquired for housing.

They`ll share with Bath for a couple of years and then go bust.

Loved Ali making the point they were losing 250k a month too!

The deluded ones will lap it up as usual though - cue `we`ve got our stadium` ringing out over Horfield again.

Wally's missing a trick here. All he needs to do is produce an "artist's impression" of an imagined new stadium. 

History has shown us that this will keep the gullible fewers happy for at least five years. 

I believe one more would be enough to produce a calendar, which could be sold in their club shop and double current revenue streams.
