Questionnaire for Walsall fans on the significance of football stadium names


#21

Cometh the hour cometh the sponsor, The “Dyno-Rod” stadium anyone?


#22

:rofl::rofl::rofl:
Individual stands to be renamed the Vileda, Palmolive, Andrex and Armitage Shanks stands.


#23

Not forgetting the Domestos Bar, for those who don’t mind going clean round the bend trying to get a drink at half time…


#24

In true Walsall FC naming conventions, surely only the Bonser Stadium would do for the next name change?


#25

“The Venue, Palfrey”


#26

The stadium of darkness?


#27

Welcome to stadium pisspot with ■■■■ poor ambitions


#28

Done it, although ,as others have said,not sure how useful it will be. Fellows Park has a special significance because it’s named after the man who bequeathed the stadium to the town in perpetuity. Somehow we’ve ended up paying nearly £1/2 M per year to play in its successor.


#29

Aaaah - that’ll be the legacy of our very generous owner won’t it :roll_eyes:


#30

The pot at the end of the rainbow was buried under the porch when ground remediation works were undertaken by GMI…


#31

Ah,GMI,the good old days…when we were being shafted,but we were blissfully unaware.


#32

Indeed - they must have loved building our new home! :moneybag::moneybag::moneybag:


#33

The big loser was Hill Samuel, merchant bank. Can’t work out why but presume there was a pay off down the line on other projects.


#34

GMI. Another piece of the jigsaw we’re trying to complete without having an actual picture.


#35

Interesting stuff available on line about Companies that Mr Gilman has been a Director of:

Not sure about the Denglen link mentioned in the article but GMI is the key entity which has dozens of registered companies listed and he’s involved in a fair few (or has been)

He’s actually listed as being (or been) a Director of a total of 59 companies one of which is/was called GMI Walsall (Reg: 05388444) incorporated in 2005 and dissolved in 2013… not sure what that’s all about…:thinking:

The companies generally seem to all have correspondence to a Leeds or Boston Spa address/addresses so who knows where Jeffs claim that he’s a Walsall fan comes from :smile:

Just for info…


#36

Uncle J had connections with Gillman before Bescot.


#37

So it’s at least possible that,far from stepping in at the last minute to save us,the Bonser takeover had been planned from some way out?


#38

Bonser said: "Peter is a long-standing friend of mine and a long-standing supporter of the club.

Another number 1 fan by the sounds of it … mmmm wonder how much he’s getting out of our club


#39

The obvious questions that then arise are:

If they are big buddies, is there any coincidence (or other factor) in GMI securing the project to build the stadium (at what many believe was a ridiculously high price for such a construction project) when he was a Director of the company? - just thinking…

Or… did they become friends during and after the stadium project and a s a result he understandably fell in love with the club and became a ‘long-standing supporter’???

Just asking that’s all…

Bonser isn’t litigious. I used to think it was one of his few qualities. Now I wonder if that’s because he knows that ,in court ,his actions would be questioned in detail by a barrister in charge of the facts.
