Naming the South Stand

Recommended Posts

Is it going to happen? 

Seems ages now we've been sat just calling it the south stand, so my question would be - who would or should it be named for? 

Personally, while the great man is still with us and for many more years to come, I'd support naming it the Alan Dicks Stand. 

Unless, of course, Alan would be to embarresed to perhaps have the entire stand name after him, maybe Gerry Gow?

Then rename the current Atyeo the Dicks Stand.

We then have an away end with the word "Dicks" written on it in 10ft tall letters.

Stealing my Bell End gag from a few weeks back? You need original material.

i don't think it will matter,

people will still call it the south stand like people still called the wedlock stand the east end

And of course, you invented the “bell end” gag :bored:

If we go up under LJ, combined with Gary's contribution should name it the Johnson stand

This would lead to confusion when the "Johnson, Johnson, bounce around" chant is sung.

Why not name it after our most successful manager? His City team's finished second in the top tier, were FA Cup runner's up and still own a joint record for the most consecutive wins during a season in the Football LEAGUE, with 14.

Step forward Harry Thickitt.

Nice idea but I think it would be a bit hollow as I doubt anyone who attends games was alive during that era and there's hardly any footage so people can't relate to it.

I actually quite like the simplicity of the South Stand and don't really want to see it renamed unless a City player or manager achieves something utterly remarkable.

That said, part of me wants to see it named the LJ Stand just to see the reaction from certain posters on here...

The Bell End could be reserved for the top tier of the Dicks Stand if it is ever added.

Be careful what you wish for, there is no stand currently named after an egg chaser .......

Was thinking this as I read the thread. It'll be the Mike Rafter stand or something similar unless it's a sponsors' name.

Exactly what I was thinking. 

The South Stand is fine. Everything else was in place long before they were here!

At least it'll never be the 'Tony Pulis Stand' as, unlike The Gas, we don't have Teepees at The Gate .......

Call it the Bas Savage Stand and as a tribute have some mascots kick footballs into the back of it every ten minutes

The Dicks stand are you sure?

Maybe make the seats in the top tier purple...with a couple of white ones dotted around.

Combine the two ideas and have "Johnsons and Dicks" above them.

A bit off topic but I'm pushing for the Official Beryl Fudge Ticket Office but it seems to be little appetite. 

Little appetite= fudge!

Tommy, if that was deliberate your grasp of our language is now complete!

Wouldn't we make money from sponsoring the stands by bookmakers, tobacco companies and alcohol manufacturers?  I suppose that is no longer allowed.

I've always liked the idea of a Dicks Stand though.

Perhaps it could be named after Mark Little and Alan Dicks.

I really don’t like that away fans get to be in the stand named after the great Atyeo so I’d go along with this.

 

Louis Carey Stand 👀

I thought it odd the Bristol Post referring to Steve Cotterall  as City’s most successful Manager today.   Would have suggested they looked up Alan Dicks or Harry Thickett.

That's the best reason for commemorating Harry's achievements. They're unlikely to be surpassed for some time, if ever. Fans of all ages should hear about them and what better way of honouring our greatest manager, to date.

Bell End is original ?

I should stay in more.

Louise Carey Stand or Gery Gow Stand.

Gerry Gow, much as I appreciate his service, isn't appropriate, just another player to be honest - many more deserving imo.

And I'm pretty sure that Carey won't get any recognition from the current regime.

Atyeo at one end and Wedlock at the other. As you were.

YOUR Bell End gag?! 😀 you’ve obviously never heard of Colin Bell - ‘your’ gag has been around since the 1960s - you need original material ...

Gerry Gow was most certainly NOT ‘just another player’ .....

In your opinion.

My opinion differs.

Good player for the club, same as many others.

‘Good’ player for the club?! So much better than that ... Steve Galliers was a ‘good player for the club’ ... Gow? Way, way up there
