Just that Braemar road will remain standing for 10-12 months, whatever that means. A member of staff told a friend on a tour that this was the case.
We were told this on our tour as well

Me too. Does that mean that you have Brentford on your birth certificate, same as me?
Yes! It means supporting the Bees was always meant to be even though we moved away when I was a couple of months old and I didn’t start following the club until I moved back to London 22 years later.

I walked past GP today; it seems operation move out is in full swing. A lot of clearing, skips and workers around the forecourt. A fair bit of work appeared to be happening at the side of the club shop as well. It had the feel of residents have left their house and sent workers in to tidy/clear up. For the first time whilst it'll always be our spiritual home it did have a sense; the football club have moved on and it isn't our home anymore.

Was hoping we go back there for home games cos at moment it feels like every game is going to be away which doesnt bode well. Hope I am wrong

You sound like my mum’s lodger who it took me and my sister months to explain after he had to move out when she died and we were clearing the house for sale that he didn’t live there any more even if through kindness we’d let him keep some stuff in the garage temporarily while he got settled in his new place. It’s gone. BFC doesn’t own it any more. It isn’t our ground.

I love the fact that many of the seats of GP will live on in the grounds of various non-league clubs! :)

I agree although <<sad b*stard alert>> would like to see some kind of tracker so that I could see where my actual seat ends up. (If it does end up somewhere other than the dump).

GP will always be our ground or home just think home games with nol support in an alien strange place is not a good idea

Its not actually an idea that someone has had, its a result of the current circumstances that we have no control over?

I’ll share a story on here, hopefully next week. It’s a great story and well worth the wait :)

Can we have time lapse views of GP disappearing and new development appearing?

For a million reasons we had to move to Lionel Road, Mori. A new ground is better than a bankrupt club... you'll get used to it, we all will.

I don't know why people are complaining about leaving GP, the new ground is amazing and I could never have imagined us having a stadium like it.

Yes! Just think, we could have been ground sharing at Woking for the last 15+ years. *shudders*

We wouldn't have survived 15+ years if we'd gone to Woking.

As a part time supporter of Gloucester City during their serial ground sharing ventures I can assure you that we'd have survived any amount of tough times. We just got oh so lucky.

No, indeed not. AFC Brentford would now be proclaiming a move closer to home with relocation to groundshare at Plough Lane in time for our first season back up to Conference National. Some geeky bloke called Benham would be being derided by the press for suggesting a 10 year plan to develop an unpromising triangle of land by Kew Bridge and an ambition to get us back where we belong in L1.

I grew up in Gloucester, thought not been to see City since the Meadow Park days. So good to see both clubs on their way up and in new grounds. Both have exciting futures.
