Bristol Rovers Dustbin Thread

Why stop at 20000, plan big and aim for the stars !

Wael commented that the Mem site is exactly the same as that for Evertons 40,157 Goodison park.
which has a record attendance of over 78,000 !....imagine that on Filton avenue .
Goodison has housing right around the ground.

 

The amateurism continues from the top, then.  

Everton are planning to move (have a site, planning permission, finance, no NIMBY opposition) because Goodison Park is cramped and is from a bygone age.  There would be no planning permission and overwhelming NIMBY opposition if they set out to use the site to expand or build from scratch on now, in 2017.  

The housing has sprung around the stadium over the last 100+ years, it did not happen in vice-versa. 

Besides, Everton would not be stupid or desperate enough to want to do such a thing.  Ideas were actually mooted to redevelop the site before their genuinely wealthy financial backer arrived but deemed a complete non-starter.

It's a desperately poor attempt to clutch at straws by Wael, if that's what he's said.

Anyone remember the ol' "no-one will talk about Bristol Rovers anymore" from Lansdown?

How's that going for ya, Steve?

 

I sometimes feel a bit detached from the hierarchy and corporate side of things at AG these days but that comment from SL was a great leveller for me!  Despite his wealth and level of responsibility, Stevie L still has the time to put the boot into the gas.

What makes you think that Bristol Rugby have nowhere permanent to play? Are you in some sort of state of denial that City and Bris share Ashton Gate?

You bloody teasers......  what, I have been waiting since 1982 to see them fold and disappear, do I have to wait much longer?  Imagine them gone and how in a few years that would benefit City, no way would I expect any diehards to come over, but as time passes, if there was genuinely one team in Bristol......... oh stop, I can't think about it anymore :) 

Oblivion on the horizon for Rovers?

The sooner the better.:yes:

Not interested but your posting within a minute of my post! Although being near you is somewhat different than being miles away which could well now happen, in my view Bristol would be an even more boring CIty without the football rivalry.   

Unless you've missed it, there hasn't been proper 'rivalry' for years. Because you simply haven't been good enough, both on and off the pitch.

And if you don't like the fact that we're light years, and i mean light years, in front of you and that makes it boring for you, then do the decent thing - MOVE!

Anyone, yet again, would be lead to believe that it is someone else's fault the sags haven't been able to provide a proper rivalry for 17 years, wouldn't they?  This now apparently makes Bristol "even more boring".  

That's today's instalment of #gaslogic for us:- it's always someone else's fault, from failing to beat 10 men in 84 minutes to Bristol being boring due to no football rivalry.

Indeed.

Only one more year and the gap can legally go out on the piss in town with its mates.

We need to have a happy 18th for 'The gap' you've made a brilliant suggestion.

Buying the gap their first legal pint would be fantastic.

I wonder if Thatchers or Butcombe would do a commemorative brew for us!

And how could @JamesBCFC be so cruel and heartless to deprive a child of the never to be forgotten Yuletide experience that is Santa`s Grotto?

For shame!

We will not go away- you know it. You've managed to live  with our presence up to now..and we of course just want to see you suffer- I admit we have had/are getting more than a fair share of suffering, but we are used to it.Makes yours when it comes all the more satisfying...

So....are you expecting us to suffer the humiliation of dropping out of the entire League soon then?

Wally says finding is not an issue.

But there are no plans yet so costs are unknown.

I suppose if you don't know the costs, then funding isn't an issue - but it will become an issue once the costs are identified... 

Bloke is a bullshitter.

Yep: he cant make any claim regards funding if he doesn't know what it's going to cost. Farcical. He is the Diane Abbott of Football owners.
