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? 

The Dicks stand are you sure?

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

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

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

Name the South Stand the Atyeo Stand.

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.

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 👀

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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

The entrances and exits could be named "Johnson In" and "Johnson out"

You can then choose which door to use depending on results!

Alan Dicks of course should have one special exit named after him

"Dicks out"

I believe that no naming of stands for a while. Then the next one could be one of the Bristol Rugby greats.

I know that will upset some City fans but it is now their home stadium, they are pulling in some impressive attendances and their history of local Bristol boys who became international players when playing for them is impressive.

So do you. Everyone has been using that joke for about 20 years.

YOU need original material.

Just thank your stars it's not the Dunder stand.

I can't bloody wait until we ditch Dunder from our shirts.

Yeah, Christ knows why we'd want a sponsor who's willing to pay us more than any sponsor ever has...

Wayway up there with Merrick Collier Ritchie.

I understand the admiration he was a hero of mine, but very few players deserve such recognition, and I can only think of two - Atyeo and Wedlock.

They could call the stands whatever they want depending upon the sport being played on the day surely ?

Tucker, Pullin, Morley, Rafter etc etc etc for the rugby, been so many hasn't there.
