Ashton Gate pitch - will it be replaced this summer?

Not an expert, so putting it out there.

The pitch has been replaced every summer, since I don’t know when. Would it last for two seasons to the same quality as we’re currently used to?

We havent played football on it since the Manchester games it should hold out 😄😄

Did it get relaid last summer? 

Can't imagine there was any time with the concerts 

I remember wondering last summer if they had as there were no photos released like we used to have

Not relaid was such. Grass killed off and re-seeded. Yes.

I’m sure it was @phantom although I’m now doubting myself!

Hard to do so when you don't know when you'll be asked to restart as it needs a minimum of 6 weeks, if the FA keeps delaying any restart by 4/5 weeks then you can't be sure the pitch will be ready. One club (pretty sure it was a premier league club) has re-laid theirs in this break but they were on it straight away.

Simply who cares...... coronavirus pandemic and we are worrying about pitches🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️

I have to ask, if you don't believe that we should be able to discuss anything else apart from the pandemic, what are you even doing on a football forum? :huh:

I guess it all depends on the condition it is in, the financial constraints, the return to a semblance of normality, unless it was raising huge concerns or the grounds man knows it cannot last another season, then I guess it won’t be a priority.

Believe or not the world is still carrying on around all this

I'm certain nobody was worried in this thread, but it may actually help people deal with things at the moment talking about things like this

I appreciate I have no idea how the coronavirus is personally affecting you, but we all deal with anxiety etc in different ways - and no, no one way is the right way

I can always remember the pictures of the tractors coming in and taking off all the topsoil and just this ground of brown soil being left

I think talking about replanting the pitch is a positive thing. The hope that it will be new beginnings and we have something to look forward to...even if it is the first sighting of Lee with his grass measuring thing putting his thumbs up as we can have football again!
