If August is the start date then a decision would have to be made 2-3 months before. I think this is why we are getting nervous. Of course I don't know the extent of how much is required but either way a commitment by all parties would need a major signing off . This isn't like getting a wall built.
But August isn't the start date, that's the date a deal needs to be agreed for work to start before pp expires the following January, although I doubt S Glos are going to object if we start a month or so later anyway, assuming pp isn't so rigid it has to start in January come what may.
It's very easy to make a start on site to comply with planning consent, all you have to do is turn up with a JCB and dig a few holes. Simples!
Not sure if this has been mentioned before. UWE has formed a partnership with Bristol City Foundation Trust for 3 year Sports Acadamy Degrees utilising " the new start of the art football stadium at Ashton Gate" - taken from UWE website. I beginning to feel some serious questions ought to be aimed AGAIN at Steve Hamer through perhaps local media about the UWE situation - the whole saga is now becoming almost to the point of ridicule. We have been fobbed off long enough - the landing lights are definitely off and we've run out of fuel. Perhaps we need to start a new thread with this Mr Moderator.
Don't panic Mr Mannering! This is exactly why the UWE want a stadium on their site. They continue to develop their sports academy and a stadium on their doorstep will enable this to happen. Clearly they don't have the stadium yet so they have probably struck a deal to use trashton for the short term until the better UWE stadium has been built.😉
Unbelievable, LJ should be ashamed that it has come to this. He must have something on Pantsdown to still be in his job whilst taking no responsibility for their shambles of a season.
This is a dangerous precident for the players to set. I appreciate that they feel bad for the away fans but by refunding them they are only protecting LJ from the consequences of his pi$$ poor management even more.
They are also just adding to the teds sense of self entitlement which is already at a ridiculous level given they feel anything but European football is not good enough for their precious franchise.
What happens if (when....fingers crossed) they get relegated then, will the players have to refund all the fans for every game of the season?
