Thought I asked him not to dump the loyal fans who’ve supported the hypermarket ?

I dunno, few days after he gets his community destroying superstore he quits faster than you can say Gaddafi.

Whats that all about?

Probably running out of days he can stay in the uk to fight the brave residents defending their civil rights.

Inconsiderate man, I’m going to have to change all my images. Its ok though, Sextons got mileage in him. Anyone know what his favourite pies are?

No hard feelings SL, you’ve done the right thing at last.

    Sextones favourite pie is, sacredspring ass.
    It’s described as full of shit and gives you a bad case of the squits.
    You’d better start getting to like humble pie, as it aint going to be so easy for the objectors now.

    Oh just to correct you, he hasn’t gone yet, that’s May. He’ll probably leave the chair on a high.

    I resent your comments. You accuse me of supporting violence against my opponents.
    As usual those accusations are based on absolutely nothing.
    When have I ever joked about throwing bricks through someones window?
    I don’t support violence against others, though I can understand how others might be drawn into it through provocation.
    You seem unable to differentiate between a threat and a tongue in cheek comment.
    Why don’t you grow up.

    The exciting news is that moron Guy Price has been promoted to Chief Exec, the man appointed to deliver a new stadium and get the local community onside.

    So far all he’s delivered is a 1:500 scale model of a new stadium and a community that wants to lynch him.

    Can’t wait to see him in the transfer market …

    Congratulations on being the first to attack the soon to be C E of BCFC, You should feel mighty proud.
    For your information he’s overseen the planning applications for the stadium, for the access road and for the Sainsbury’s store at Ashton gate. All have been successful, and you refer to him as a moron.

    Or alternatively Rich…..
    Mr Price so comprehensivley botched the first Tesco application by managing to get most of south Bristol so fundamentally opposed that it had to be withdrawn before the embarrassment of a refusal. Cost to the club??? Unknown but probably more than his salary in 2009.

    He then lost the first Sainsburys application, due to complacency. Cost to club??? Unknown, but also surely more than his salary in 2010. Then only by herculean lobbying behind the scenes did the club manage to convince the Lib Dems that this was there last chance, so they had better appoint a planning committee who knew what was good for them (Step forward Rob F with more career-busting accusations of collusion, conspiracy and fraud taken up by the client press at the BEP). Even then he relied upon fan power provided for free.

    And TVG? Whatever your views on the rights and wrongs of this, surely it was his job to spot this problem and deal with it quickly? Solving it , if indeed it can be solved, could cost more than a decade of his salary.

    Its a good job for him that performance related pay is ignored by most of the private corporate sector other wise he would potentially be paying BCFC for the next few years

    Just my opinion mind.

    Since when have 2,300 people signing a petition opposed to Tesco, been most of south Bristol.
    Like the rest of your flawed statements it is a million miles from reality. Not just my opinion, the truth, but not as you portray it.
    So the first application was down to complacency? Most people opposed, say it was down to planning issues. Indeed this is what you imply when you alledge the planning committe were changed to suit the application.

    Look I don’t want to put the boot into Guy Price but I think he should stick to double-glazing.
    Sexton as chief pie-eater that doesn’t mince words is a popular choice with fans, lets hope he gets more in tune with residents than his predecessor,
    It was always going to be tricky for SL to move aside. He’s got a stack invested in the club. Can’t see him getting his usual massive stock return though. He’s been a good bank roller for the club, but not for much longer by the sounds of it.
    If he was so confident of the new stadium complex at Ashton Vale I’m surprised he hasn’t stayed on as the figurehead.

    “Since when have 2,300 people signing a petition opposed to Tesco, been most of south Bristol.”

    Probably about the same time that 30,000 people signing a petition, most of whom live outside the city, supposedly demonstrate that the majority of Bristolians (pop: 400,000+) support the stadium.

    “the stadium will create 1,500 construction jobs” Colin Sexstone, March 2011

    “Colin is being too modest” Me, just now.

    You are mistaken, Mr Lansdown will still be the major shareholder and will still invest heavily in the club. If you were as observant as you’d like to think you are, you’d know that Mr Lansdown said he’s going to step aside shortly, late last year. This announcement is no surprise, he has three months left of his chairmanship, the rest of his life and his family following to achieve the stadium dream.
    Where you dream all this stuff up from I don’t know.

    I think 30,000 people signing a petition in support of something, is far greater than 2,300 signing against something, it’s always easier to get people to oppose plans.
    The first figure represents about 1.25 percent of the population of south Bristol, with lots of signatures also from outside the area. The second figure represents about 7.5 percent of all of Bristols population. I know of many people unable to sign the petition because of restricted access to email addresses. Unfortunately the man in the street that does think a stadium is a good idea, will not as a result of being asked that question, go away and sign up to the petition. If you have a petition in front of someone in a shop they are in and using, then they will sign it there and then.
    As for your selective quotes, that is it. You have mixed quotes for the whole developments with quotes for individual developments. Your following in Georges footsteps, like when he states that the £22.3 m from the sale to Sainsbury’s will only provide 10 to 15 percent of the stadium costs of £90m.
