Green perspectives on Stockwood and Bristol. Mostly.

Wednesday, 30 September 2009


Here's ours - worth reading only if you're interested in realities, not just dreams. Nothing against a new stadium. It's just that I'd rather the owners should pay for it in cash, not the public pay for it in kind.

Wouldn't it be good, though, if a big stake in the new stadium was held by the fans, whose week-in week-out support at the turnstiles is probably the greatest asset the club has. I think the owners forgot the fans when they claimed that the Ashton Gate stadium site is the clubs only asset. If they floated a share issue with the same enthusiasm as they've shown in orchestrating support for a Tesco Extra in Southville, maybe we could have a useful development instead, the fans would own part of their club, and Steve wouldn't have to reach too deep into his pockets to complete the deal.
