I guessed that , but why? 

Click bait.

To some extent it's worked. That's at least five of us who have seen the article - way up on the normal readership for their advertisement littered drivel!

A couple of years back they gave that eccentric woman up on York Place a centre spread to moan about how the ground “spoiled her view” of Dundry.

Has anyone read todays Bristol Post online and the article about Ashton Court and its views of Ashton Gate being the worst place in Bristol, and giving 10 reasons why visitors should stay away, including the view of the stadium, and " why anyone would want to see that is beyond us" This has to be a wind up surely?

Is this post a wind-up??!!!??

Coming in tomorrow's Post:

An investigation into Wael's plans for Rovers

An investigation into the decision making surrounding the Arena

A complete absence of clickbait on the website

A reasoned and informative article on the traffic and transport plans for Bristol and the surrounding area

Other interesting stuff

 

 

Sorry, I meant to say NOT coming in tomorrow's Post.

It's written sarcastically ffs lads!

2 of the 10 reasons are: "The Balloon Fiesta is rubbish" and "It has wild animals everywhere"

 

Why would you want to go there if you could be eaten alive ?

The papers a joke now. Any semblance of journalism replaced with click bait articles to drive advertising sales. It might keep the paper afloat but it doesn’t feel like a proper local paper anymore.

Written by Tristan Cork- a third rate hack and a first class stroker.

And a perfect example of what type of folk the gentrication of Southville has attracted to the area...... No doubt they all resent the ground being in the area even though it was there long before they were!

The decline in local journalism and media coverage goes hand in hand with a decline in local democracy. It’s hard to find out what’s really going on and whose responsibility it was, so many people don’t bother, while local “papers” struggle to survive on dwindling advertising revenue, so revert to click bait. This is one of the considerable downsides and adverse effects of the internet, and partly explains people’s frustration at things happening to them over which they feel they have little or no control.
 

By comparison to other local news and politics, although we might moan about the quality of local sports coverage in the Post, at least we get something, based mainly on those running it knowing there is more interest in City particularly, and pretty much the only other source being the club itself, with the BBC mainly sticking to broadcasting the matches rather than anything more in depth, as at a national level only the Premier League seems to count.
 

Why else is the EFL on Quest, other than the big TV companies don’t really give a **** about anything other than the “top clubs”? ITV has given up on club football almost completely, and only shows England international games.
