I know that their fan base are generally as thick as pig shite, but surely the odd one with half a brain cell should pipe up and deliver the realism that getting 7-8k at home games is not “well supported” especially when their minimum break even requirement is (was, its probably more now) 9.5k. 

How often has their amazing support averaged their minimum required break even number in the last 60 odd years..?!  

That’s not actually the part of the quote that stand out to me. It’s the fact they think they are attractive to an investor because they have a interesting backstory with their nicknames and have a unique kit. Wtf, they are in a worse mess than I thought if that’s a strong selling point.

July 1st I think.  A quick look at last years accounts showed a £3.046m loss.  The total debt stood at £9.8m

Going on the basis of a similar loss this year that must take them close to the £12m charge against the ground? 

I thought the credit facility had been extended?

the last time they even played Sunderland in the League was at Trumpton in 1993, so now lets play guess the crowd.

Without looking it up, how many loyal and few, including the hordes of travelling Mackems made it along to Bath, it what was their final season at 'Championship' level (League Division 1 back then)

:gasmask: MTG 

 

3,200?

That was a pivotal match. Winning up there ( at a time when Bradford were en route for the top division) proved that we had that bit of magic and gave us all the belief that we were onto something special. 

 

"en route for the top division" ?

They must have took the scenic route, they took another 10 years after they played us...!!

I seem to remember that they were  near the top of the second division and going really well .

We were in the third and no one gave us much , if any , of a chance .

I bow down to your encyclopedic memory Mr Riley .

Well, I don’t think Bradford were on their way to the top at that point in time Maj ..... they were relegated to the third tier a couple of years after we beat them up there and it took them ten years to reach the premier league from when we stuffed ‘em....however, during their league cup run that year they beat both Everton and Spurs I believe so our result was not to be sniffed at...

Massive game for the blue few this weekend as they travel to the Stadium of Light for the FIRST TIME EVER!

Some of them still think that they are going up to Roker Park!

You could even say it was ' pivotal ' ? :dunno:

Someone needs to teach them the meaning of unique too as they constantly refer to their kit as being so when justifying why a mega rich investor should buy them...

Bit harsh to compare them with a team no one has heard of scrabbling around in the lower leagues in their country, after all they are one of the most successful teams in the Mexican league.

All whilst they seem to think they ‘deserve’ a new stadium, training ground, and a rich owner to fund their superb fanbase.

 

A few years ago one gashead actually posted "Why can't someone just give us a ground?"

On this forum, it was then stated "Since Rovers always sell anything of value, they'd soon be homeless again".

Surely seeing as it's a subject on the gas and numbers that would be 90,000 with many of said pages locked out!

90.000? That`s a full two s*g Wembly attendances isn`t it?
