Bristol Rovers Dustbin Thread


Recommended Posts

So Slagchat are talking in terms of a £3.0 million loss for the year against a £3.2 million loss for the previous year and needing a crowd of 15k every week to break even.  As things stand, it would seem that another £3million loss can be expected next year too and the year after, etc.  How long now before Wally pulls the rug (not the ones they had cleaned)?

They could sell some players, but I don't think they have any left that are worth anything.

Selling the Colony might raise a few bob but ultimately, the only asset is the Mem.

Look forward to seeing the accounts together with their plans to plug the leak.

Let’s face it the Al Qadis have been a huge disappointment; they failed to do and have/had? no intention to do what the fans and the previous owners expected of them.

They should do the honourable thing and put the club up for sale before the UWE site is used for something else.

 

I think the penny has finally dropped. Not all is well over in Minimal land, they want Wally out

Wally will sell the stadium to Aldi or Lidl and get the hell out of it leaving the Sags begging to play in our shiny new stadium that they despise so much.  However, many Sags would never watch their beloved team at AG leaving a crowd of 4.5k and a hefty rent payable to Bristol Sport.

Alternatively, there is Twerton, Forest Green or Durdham Downs.

Cant see us letting those pikey vermin into the Gate, We would need to get locks fitted to everything that was not bolted down.

I suppose they could sell the Men to a Management company and then become their tenants, after all "it's what they do". 

It's a short term solution though as they would continue to lose money and any extra revenue the ground generates.

Surely it’s a mistake, AG is not big enough to hold the “Blue Many” Could they bring the Wally’s Wealth and upgrade AG into a 60k stadium with parking and santa’s Grotto! As their part of the deal!!!!!

(White seats, corrigated plastic and a bit of 4x2)

They wouldn't get permission from the council. The locals would right be pissed off by another 23 fixtures at the Gate after us and the rugger.

Surely with the level of debt accruing, and counteract that against the assets of the business (which is possibly becoming negligible).

Without a significant level of fresh investment, I really can't see this business as a 'Going Concern'.

One question, does the proposed Accounts include provision for interest? As this would obviously not impinge on cashflow.

Talking of cashflow, like any Football Club their Accountant must be eating/drinking and sleeping cashflow analysis (no real difference to any SME)

There is the small matter of the ground being used by the egg chasers.  A ground share between 3 clubs ain’t going to work so no idea why it keeps cropping up?

 

It seems to work at Hull. Hull City and their two rugby league teams. Dunno how the pitch holds up, but for the holding company that owns the ground, it's a way of maximising revenue.

24 games as the gas would get to play ONE cup game.

For the pedantics, I know they play in both the FA and the League cups, but statistically one of the two will be away.

Rugby League is now a summer sport and at Hull the council own the stadium.

I see the blue few are in melt down because their game at MK Dons is ON.

Their supporters club have issued a statement saying that the all of Bristol is in lock down and no buses and trains are running,  lie after lie .  Trains and buses are running in Bristol.

Obviously the stage coach that normally serves Horfield is confined to the stables.

What they could do is, form a new company with the rugby club where they both have ownership of 50% of the new company and rugby ground. They could then have a clause where, if either of the partners go into administration the other partner could buy out the other for a figure of what? shall we say £10.000, that would seem a fair price. Then the other partner could own the ground and charge the cuckoos a rent for it's use. The rugby club would then be seen as the heroes, saving BRFC from going out of business completely and into oblivion. And everyone is happy, as it's a fair thing to do, Hahahahahahahahaha.

The statement was posted yesterday and buses weren't running.

It's more of a safety thing when local authorities etc are advising not to travel.

And this would benefit us how, exactly?

Those ***** tried to steal Ashton Gate in ‘82.

As far as I am concerned they can **** off & play on The Downs.

Except I don't want them and their fans near the downs. That's our part of town.

Even more of a ridiculous statement then. Requesting MK to cancel their home match because the local bus service in Bristol is not operating the day before the game.

Just had a look at Slagchat, blimey there sure are a lot of plastic Accountants over there !

Apparently, £1.5m of the loss is the purchase of the Colony in addition to their summer expenditure on players.

PLEASE these items are both treated in the Accounts as assets and depreciated as such (ie length if contract of player) , and thus depreciation only effects the P&L of the business.

The loss or indeed profit on a player sold during his contracted period is indeed recorded in the P&L.

Not exactly the statement though, is it?

It was highlighting that the authorities had warned people not to drive/travel, and as a consequence there was no public travel in/out of Bristol - and to think of the fans.

I don't agree with thinking MK should have called it off, but do find it weird how you seem to have read a different statement than the one posted.

In fairness you can’t get to MK by train today going the quickest way (via Birmingham)
