BRISTOL | New Briston Rovers Stadium | 21,700 | Proposed

http://www.bristolrovers.co.uk/page/...373698,00.html

Believe it when i see it and as a City fan i hope we make it as hard for them to get PP as their fans did for us.

I must say it's a bold move by the g*s, and one which really could prove a masterstroke IF it ever gets off the ground. The whole city of Bristol knows how many hurdles lie ahead after what's happened with City's project. It may appear all laid out immaculately and planned to perfection but all sorts of things begin to crawl out the woodwork when a project like this is announced, leaving best laid plans in an utter mess. The great advantage for Rovers imo is that they will be planting themselves slap bang in the middle of a large and constant fanbase. They will acquire of lot of support from students, since they will be living on campus next door to the stadium and in my view i would imagine it would be the done thing for many students to 'go and watch rovers' at discounted student rates just for something to do. Many of these students will continue to live in bristol post graduation and will continue to support rovers. It'll be a constant supply chain. Also, it would be excellently placed being so close to abbeywood/parkway.

Oh dear! Another crappy bowl type stadium. Really does look rather cheap and nasty.

yeah, that's what i thought. I prefered the plans for the new Mem, which at least had a boxy charm to it. Not hard to see why they would want to move though. Would like to see some more images, and i suppose there is room to expand and improve the UWE- but then they'll prob never be big enough to do it!

Anyway, there's still plenty of time for the locals to try and get the site registered as a Town Green....

All the plans seem to be very well thought out, and great credit to all parties for that, but the actual stadium looks so bland it's unbelievable, it really is! Why can designers in the UK by and large not come up with something that actually impresses? It saddens me to see a design like this when, functionally, and considering where it is and all the benefits that go with it, this could be one of the best developments for a club in the UK for quite some time.

Away from the design, and while possibly not popular among fans of either Rovers or City, but considering you now have City, Rovers, and Bristol Rugby all looking to get major projects off the ground, isn't it time they all came together, as clubs and as supports, and tried to make sure it ALL goes through? Because if this development and Citys development go through, surely it would be a huge huge boost for sport in the Bristol and Gloucester area? Sometimes you need to look at the bigger picture than getting one over on rivals.

The design isn't particularly exciting, but fair play, it's a decent and ambitious project. Surely though, the locals on Gloucester Road will cry bloody murder over the prospect of a Sainsbury's going there?

Like others, I preferred their previous design, but there you go. If it wasn't deliverable, then it's just a pretty picture.

I presume the rugby club would want to move up with them?

I note as well, that this would mean that there is only one team in Bristol again!

There was only ever one team in Bristol James, you know that.

Yes the rugby club have been invited to join Rovers at The UWE.

I think that this stadium will go ahead as it is in the area of South Gloucestershire Council, who are much more likely to get things moving than Bristol City Council. Also, Horfield residents have stated that having a Sainsbury's on the Memorial Ground site is preferable to an expanded stadium

Well I think rab c nesbitt would be able to move things along quicker than bristol city council. Where did you hear the horfield residents were more interested in a sainsburys than an extended stadium? I haven't noticed that reported..
I think you're right though, can't see it matching the (still unresolved) city stadium farce.
Saying that, rovers aren't looking too clever down in league 2 at the moment so whether they will remain focused on the new stadium remains to be seen. I suppose the bonus they have is the fact it is a partnership deal with the uni so costs are minimal.

The head of the Horfield Residents' Association was on Points West back when it was announced and said that they were happier with the Sainsbury's.
