Bristol Rovers Dustbin Thread

Exactly.

The club loses money every week, so no value in owning it (or at least paying for it). And the one fixed asset they have has no value either as it has the secured loans against it. 

Given that they need a new stadium the one thing they could sell to raise money towards it now has no value either as Wally and his family get their money back.

I won't be surprised if big brother pulls the plug, got the impression he was never keen on the idea from the start, and with the bank they are involved with not performing that well, he probably wants to draw a line under an expensive experiment.

Suppose it depends on how much they want and if they can accept a loss. Otherwise it's admin and asset liquidation for them to get their money back.

Assuming that from this very moment it would take a minimum of three years before they could play a league match at a new purpose build stadium (aater acquiring land, obtaining planning permission, dealing with objections, transport plans, design, build, yada yada) at their present run rate they'll have lost another c.£10.5m. Hope that whoever is working out the sums factors this in forgets to factor this in.

So right now they'll say they're listening but actually nothing will happen. They'll say they're forced into admin with no buyers, partly blame if on SH (the obvious scapegoat now imo) and walk off with the deeds to the mem. OR they sell the club but hold on to the mem, rent it back to the new owners..

Jesus this is terrible. Imagine having to watch this every week.

If you have to watch that tripe every week you'd like wearing a jester's outfit, with an ex player's name who's never played for you on your back as in Windyass, have six fingers, have more toes than teeth, either headbutt or lick windows and be desperate to be loved by all other football fans.

You WOULD think any journalist worth his salt would have been "on" this boardroom contretemps a lot earlier than now if this was common knowledge for months. Just shows how in love the EP is with the blue few, not wanting to rock the boat etc.

It`s so obvious what they are doing. When it inevitably goes tits up just like every other pie-in-the-sky stadium idea that they`ve ever had it won`t be because Wally hasn`t got a pot to piss in and can`t get some other sucker to pay for it they will claim that it`s all some Illuminati style conspiracy involving the council, Steve Lansdown, Sainsbury`s and probably Wycombe Wanderers to deprive them of what is rightfully theirs.

Nah, I think BCFC11 misread the context of that post on Gaschat - the guy was actually criticising his fellow gasheads for always playing the victim and thinking the council and SL etc are against them ... nevertheless, you’re right, they’ll still try and blame everyone else, despite what one lone voice of reason said ...

Slarti, you beat me to it. I was thinking isn't strange how what appeared to be an overnight decision is suddenly "obvious" and "being signalled for months", and yet good old Gregor was being the master of diplomacy all this time. @Bristol Rob is wrong, the AQ's don't need another yes man, they already have GMcG.

In fairness G McG is the City correspondent, The sags have their own lickspittle brownose who reports on everything sag, can't remember what his name is. But all come under the auspices of the editorial Sag Post !

thats what will happen, they can't borrow any more against the mem, they ether have to dip into their own pocket (won't happen) or put the club in administration (the only way they'll get money back now)

Also there probably won't be a better season to take the points deduction for them . Almost as if all the stars have aligned and their saviour came forth bearing gifts whilst riding a camel..........

Oh hang on.
