JD is crap. No atmosphere. At least half the crowd have no investment in the teams playing and are just there to experience the stadium.

Awful beer is £5/ pint as well


And our stadium beer is awful , just slightly cheaper. 🤔

Yes but as you know Steve, I can have a pint or two of Gold in the Sessile Oak first, and have Mal drive me home. He won’t do that in Cardiff

I can live with it if Nigel Short tells me that there’s a significant cash boost. I don’t believe it does anything to grow our fan base though. If anything it makes it harder to form the habit of regular attendance at PYS. The season is fractured enough already.

I will concede that it does get a fair chunk of publicity

Was that an option then? Childish.

I’m not a fan of playing home fixtures away!   Travel. Parking. Different seats.   It’s a very bad idea and all for money. Sod the fans

I can get a train from Llanharan to Cardiff in 20 mins. Last Friday our journey to PYS took 2 hours. But I’d still prefer that to Cardiff. If I wanted to watch rugby in Cardiff I’d support the Blues

Never been to one one of these pantomime events but know quite a few who do so without fail. Typically JD is the only time they'll pay out any shekels to watch pro rugby in the season. If it makes commercial sense then so be it. Hopefully this will mean that we get back to having the odd meaningful game at Dave Parade again...

The whole idea of building PYS was to monetise it.
I’ll wait and see what the details look like, if we make big dosh etc.

Why not reduce the cost of the ST to reflect that there are only 10 home matches    If anyone want to go to JD they just pay. Rather than force us to this pantomime in order to maximum our ST cost. It’s a joke

When Gloucester’s new Stand was started we played the last league match at Ashton Gate - against Bristol as it happened. We were offered the cost of the rail ticket. A coach. Or the money back. We were not expected to go. Given no choice.   We were offered a choice

Wasn't Gloucester owned by a billionaire family then?
