Thousands is a more accurate figure

I'm surprised this wasn't already being done with the thousands that go and watch them! Also where is Wormley, Bradley Stone and Cleve?!

So run that by me again?

4 of us club together and get a taxi from our houses to the ground for £10.00 each (£20 there & £20 back) or we walk half a mile in all weather to get a coach for £10.00 plus £1.50 booking fee!

Doesn’t make sense?

Ah, got you, there aren’t any fellow supporters living near me and of course we could organise the proverbial in a brewery anyway – so Gas Travel makes sense.

I see where you are coming from now.

Although ' peegging ' is a Gas slant on it . Obviously @st andrews gas partner had lost the necessary equipment,  hence his annual visit. Roll on 2021 I say.

If it's all about pegging, shouldn't that be 'anal visit'?

Bless 'em, one of the Fewers is suggesting that their goal-machine Tom Nichols (or whatever he's called) never found his shooting boots because Rovers are too big for him, and that too many people watch him play.

Just read Birmingham City have sold their ground to the clubs owners and been given a 25 year lease to rent the ground back for £1.25 million pound a year 
 

Sold for £22m so the suggested value of £25m for the Mem sounds about right assuming they are a similar size. I wonder what happens after the 25 years is up?? 
 

 

 

Yep, if you close your eyes they look almost identical

F6C3AC77-AD9E-4C56-973A-90D55D42822E.jpeg

Where the hell is he getting the 25m figure from? And why is that figure somehow higher than Birminghams ground? 

Let's forget about the capacity of each stadium for a second and look at the footprint of the stadium,  Birminghams foot print dwarfs the Memorial Grounds footprint and yet using some gas logic the Memorial Ground is worth more?

You see what you've done there is apply rational logic when you needed to apply Gaslogic. It all makes perfect sense then.

The logic might actually be more based in reality than you think... with a couple of glaring omissions by our Blue friend.

Land in Bristol commands quite a premium.

The land the stadium sits on is the only thing with any value (unless you chance upon someone who just happens to want a stadium).

With the debt they have secured against the stadium, the stadium is worthless.

Basically, Wally can get his cash back and leave them homeless.

You have hit the nail on the head there and it is going to happen a lot sooner than anyone thinks.

Even young Alf Garner seems to have sussed it out now.

How much are they losing per week? Only 7k of them can bother to get of their fat arses to watch them and now they don't even have a cup run to bail them out. Take the complimentarys out alond with the concessions and they can't be selling many tickets at full price.

Surely the end can't be too far away.

Finding it hard to sale the club

will make a bit more if they sale the ground and share with bath city

Not beyond the realms.

Wally isn't going to take a loss, the best the Fewers can hope for is that they don't claim the interest on the credit they've afforded (and is secured against the stadium) so far.

As I understand it the juvenile member of the family (aged 50) would do anything to keep up the pretense of being a football club owner and this is why his elder brother is handling all negotiations which are taking place out of the country.

The latest offer will have to be accepted to enable the 2019 accounts to be finalised.  

 Cheltenham Town or Forest Green Rovers are likely relocation venues.

If there’s any truth in this Bert , then why are they signing players . Surely there isn’t the budget , even the wages of one and wages/loan fee of the other . It must be just adding to the problems.

Will the league sanction a move outside of the city? Coventry encountered all sorts of obstacles when they tried and the situation wasn`t really of their making.

R*vers however...…...………...……...…..

There already have been but in their jubilation over Alf Garner's anointment most of our fans haven't noticed.

Our former manager and his assistant both left but only Alf came in to replace them so that's one salary lost. And  a few months back our esteemed head of medical sciences, Doctor Marcus Wellbeing MD, disappeared  and was replaced by the cardboard cut out of a St John's Ambulance Service volunteer.

Sounds feasible Bert. Never to return I suspect. Could Rovers rent the Lawns after FGR move?

If they're looking for a vacant ground then the Avanhard Stadium in Pripyat is still unused. 

Better condition than their current dump too.

Come on Bert, haven’t you got delusions of grandeur suggesting Cheltenham or Forest Green? More likely a ground share with Manor Farm of Mangotsfield.

They only have 7k attendees as it is without the 5k who would boycott them if they played at AG.  How would that look.  And in any case, without a pot to piss in they couldn't even afford the rent.

Fruit Market. Mahoosive 40,000 seat stadium so almost 50% of their ‘true fan base’ can go to the games, as long as they don’t have to give up too many seats to tin-pot away teams like Sunderland and Bolton.

Wally said they`d be in there in two years about six months ago so all good for the 21/22 season I should think. The build must be progressing nicely - I`ve not heard of any problems so I`m sure it is.

I thought (hoped) Blythe Spartans or Berwick Rangers would be a better economic and demographic fit.

If I ever find myself sat in a new Rovers stadium  my first instinct will be to assume that the Al Qadis have been putting acid in the pasties and I'm actually sat by the boating lake at Eastville in a disposable tent.
