Interesting Rovers cannot get a new ground, Bristol cannot get a new Arena. I am surprised that Lansdowne isn't involved in the arena
If he had of been then it would have been built by now.
I was talking to a member of our family who recently retired from a senior post at BCC. He told me that the Temple Meads site for the Arena had been dead in the water for a while, and that the decision was made to move to Filton. I said that l had heard rumours that UWE might not be dead and suggested that it could be possible that the stadium/arena at UWE could be a possibility. It would be ridiculous to have two sites. He agreed that the UWE site made sense. Car parking; students; M4/M5 etc. Lansdowne would not be permitted to invest in two clubs l believe.
Been told that the family want to sell but Wael wants to retain 25%. Somebody from Southampton wants to buy the club but he wants the 92% the Al-Qadi's own. This may be BS but it's what I've heard. Colony is being held up because the Al-Qadi's don't want to spend money on something they may not own in a few months time
