I hope for Rovers sake that he has signed everything as we know what Rovers fans will be getting up to with their relatives at the Valentines Ball tomorrow.

I was listening to their new owner and was wondering if he even realises there's a bigger club in Bristol? 'The city and people of Bristol are wonderful', 'Nick, who are this Bristol CITY? You never mentioned them' as Nick roars out of the car park with his £8M cheque and a fast boarding ticket to Italy!

He's making the right noises but saying nothing. 'Need a new stadium', not saying where, stating that £Millions will not be being spent and 'organic growth', sounds like he's gonna keep his £70M in his pocket to me.

I find it strange that higgs is quoted as saying the sainsburys case is now insignificant 

Yes why is Piggs jumping ship if he was confident of winning against Sainsburys he would have waited till next month to collect his share of 30 million. He knows some thing and he has cut his losses and run.This could all go wrong big time

Higgs was overheard saying that he had signed a watertight contract with them .... what could possibly go wrong?

I looked over Jordan and I what did I see?

out of the corner of my eye.

I saw Irene in her burkha down on here knees,

blowing bankers by the three.

 

They swing low and they swing both ways,

they shag camels everyday,

they swing low and they swing both ways,

but Sainsbury’s will still end their days.

Just googled the richest Jordanians. Cant find any mention of them but I did find out that the wealthiest Jordanian has £2.5 billion and the third richest has £111 million. Soooooooo I don't Know how £65billion has gone so far under the radar? 

Stealth wealth.......

Buying a club is the easy bit, spending your (or venture capitalists money I would assume in this instance) is the hard bit. 

It'll be ran as a going concern as the revenue they generate will not make them break even, how long will that wash with the business model they are looking to implement?

So we run at a loss, yes that's a bad thing but we have a fan who understands and is committed to our future. 

A few years of losses, not getting things their way and it'll all come down like a house of cards.

Good luck to them (as much as I absolutely detest saying it) I think that they are going to need it.

God the moderation is a bit harsh on their site. Saw a Red got banned for this considered post :/

 

 

I'm defiantly not gutted. Obviously you are all getting a bit excited about, which is fair enough, the same happened when Lansdown happened. 
If anything, this may make City push further on, for obvious reasons. 

There is however a danger to the deal you've just done, just hope it ends positively for you lot.

Am I the only one that finds this thread rather cringe..?

 

I personally think it's great that Rovers have been bought out and I hope they manage to get to the Championship so we can have two proper clubs in Bristol that can enjoy proper derby's.

 

I was actually talking to a Celtic fan the other day and even he was saying that he can't wait until Rangers get back up to the top flight so I don't understand all the cringe worthy insults coming out. I mean honestly, saying the guy (who is obviously very wealthy) looks like he is wearing a cheap suit? Are we back in the playground!?

 

Anyway, i'm sure now some of the 'old boys' or the 'real fans' will tear this apart but oh well! Do your worst!

 

Good luck Rovers and hopefully the next time you play us we'll both be in the Championship or better giving you a 6-0 thrashing! :)

I love how optimistic they all are about this, a few years back it would have been a bigger deal but with FFP moves like this don't carry as much weight. Granted they may now have the external funds for a new stadium and better facilities, but it's not like they can buy the league by getting better players in. Ultimately clubs have to be run well and have good management teams in to succeed. If the new owner makes a balls up of that then it makes no difference, and you end up being Darlington mk.2. 

Be careful what you wish for.

This appears a brilliant thing in terms of short term gain for the gas. It appears they've successfully navigated through the choppy waters of the Sainsbury's debacle. 

But long term, I'm not quite so sure. I'm not sure I want them to go out of business, that'd be quite sad (in the long term, although hilarious in the short term), but now they've got a family in charge whose money is more important to them than the club. 

At least we know that SL supports us and everything he does is for the good of the club... Random Rich (ish) foreign investors, I'm not quite so sure. 

I hope there are some realistic gas fans out there. This isn't quite the exciting news most of them think it is.

Watch hollow head go back into management with them now there is a whiff of 'money' there. Will be interesting to see how long it lasts. At the very least, they will benefit by being bought a new stadium and facilities and the odd player.

Hang on a minute.... I'm confused...... Has one of them written #Mindthegap ?

 

I'm not sure they quite understand that it only works if your team is higher in the league tables- Mind you it has been a long time since they were.

Couldn't agree more, I have no thoughts towards Rovers as I am still a relatively young fan (25) and since I've been supporting City we've never had a proper competitive game with them so they don't even really feel like a rival. The likes of Yeovil, Swindon and Cardiff feel more like rivals to me!

 

Can you imagine the atmosphere if we were both playing at a decent level?

Personally I feel totally indifferent to it all, seems strange that Higgs, Bradshaw and Jelf have gone completely, a lot years involvement between the three of them, also find it strange that there are much bigger clubs in the lower divisions they could of pumped money into rather than a North Bristol/South Glos' footballing backwater

No doubt - but just because you hope it fails doesn't mean it will. 

Varying circumstances in all cases of course but how many Portsmouth fans thought little old Bournemouth would be three leagues above them a few years back? 

They'd have been beside themselves with laughter at the notion. 

It should come as a timely reminder that standing around assuming you're always going to be the big fish can be a dangerous game. 

I don't think big fish are to be seen standing around ;)

Probably not, I'm sure TMOR will be along shortly...

Can't stand them myself, but what will be will be (I know a song about that!)

They'll get their ground, no doubt in my mind, can't see al bundy would have got involved if that was in doubt. But we'll have been in our fully refurbished ground for a couple of years or more by then, and expect  us to have pulled away a bit further if anything.

In all seriousness like someone has alluded to already isn't it a bit odd that their main board members have all jumped ship at the first opportunity as well?!
'They were looking at L1 and L2 clubs to buy' OK so how many clubs have they approached?

We'll see how it goes, some interesting times ahead for both clubs it seems.

Potential fanbase is one reason

Be sure,this will hit us hard, IF they buy in a new fan base, what I mean by that is the floating fan enticed into cheap.entertainment lets use Bradford as an example, 17,000 season ticktets at £99 that's value for money and I think these buggers in charge know exactly what to do, may we see a Gas version of Sport South Gloucester!

Obviously. You know, shopping around for a League One or Two club shows that they are very ambitious, money is no object and they are clearly in it to spend big... doesn't it?

Erm.. I was joking about the cheap suit thing @pigeon. Difficult to gauge tone over a forum though. It was in response to the ludicrous tweet about the family being worth over £60b.

I do actually agree with your point that it would be quite a spectacle to have a regular and competitive Derby with Rovers. I'm quite proud that the Bristol Derby is regularly in the top 10 "fiercest derbies" in the country that newspapers do every so often. Not sure how long we can hold onto that if we occasionally play them in the JPT or the other cups. 

As long as they finish below us each season, have lower attendances, have a worse atmosphere and remain inferior to us in just about every way.. :shifty: I wouldn't actually mind having them in the same league

You have to get promoted twice and build a 27k ground and get bigger gates than you have for the last 50 years just to catch up, :laugh:

Im quite pleased with the gasheads acquisition. Be great to see both clubs in the championship (minimum) as my own son reaches his teens in 6 years time. Great banter lies ahead for him with the gas!  We can only dream of the promised land. I think its great for bcfc also. Lansdown will have local competition and will want to compete against the gas and remain the top bristol club . Great news for bristol in general. Bring back the derbies asap i say!
