Or was it York?

I too thought it could be York, went for Carlisle.

Twas the last season at BV, you can see SOD on the touchline with ROK stood behind. There is also a clue in that one of our current players is in the away dugout!

right team for day photo, wrong year...

And Baz guessed the correct season! 5 points each.

Photo of main stand was indeed v Blackpool, September 2006.

Is someone  going to be watching these on match days ? They are every rival fans dreams when it comes to defacing them. :(

I was panicking a little yesterday as despite all the precautions the club had taken people were leant against the walls, and one had his chair scraped along the side wall. It's a fact of life that people won't really care as much as we do.

Make the Rovers bar open only to home fans, then the chances are we'll have an unspoiled picture, AND somewhere to sit!

Why not cover them with Perspex?

On a more serious note, the Rovers Bar should have old Belle Vue type barriers to lean against, with an added shelf on top to place your drinks.

I can't believe no one (myself included!) has congratulated those involved for their efforts in arranging and producing the pictures.
       
  Well done to all!

Great idea to protect them from defacing in the short term - and those who don't think anything of leaning / scraping chairs against them.

Well done also to those involved in getting them up as a permanent reminder of our late lamented old "home"

Couldn't believe it on Saturday to see our own fans leaning up against them and one table had been pulled up against the wall and fans sat with their chairs up against it. Unbelievable !!

That bottom one with the little boy studying it is a cracking photo, Dave.  Well done.

here's the original


That's a different picture?  On the other photo shown there are no stewards in the bottom corner of the  seating and the sky is a little lighter.

Now its done we can protect it / them

Then any thoughts on carrying it a bit further ? I reckon some of the Programmes are a bit iconic and perhaps could be blown up A4 Size perhaps to form a montage or similar and thus fill another blank wall and make BVB more like home

Here is one we could use for sure. Just would need them scanning and enlarging / framing perhaps. Anyone think it a fair idea and anyone nominating any other icon of Belle Vue ?

It's just the way it's been cropped.

We did talk about picking another couple of walls and doing the same again, although it isn't a cheap process and judging by the way some Rovers fans 'cared' for the ones we've already done I'm unsure.

So would you be happy if every away club didn't allow Rovers fans in their club/bar?
Watching the rugby on tv it is great to see oppositions fans all sitting and drinking together. What a shame there are still some Neanderthals who spoil things in football.

It was meant as a light hearted remark, but to answer your question I don't recall ever being in another club's bar away from home, and I've never expected or wanted to.

You go some way to proving my point Bentley.
Why wouldn't you want to go into the oppositions bar for a friendly drink?
Off the top of my head I can recall drinking in the home bar/club at Walsall & Fleetwood for starters along with many other Rovers fans.

It was good to see quite a few people having photos taken in front of it. Sad if people been leaning on it.

I think it's good that we welcome away fans in there. Rare that we've had a sniff of trouble as the vast majority of fans respect the hospitality and comment what a good set up it is. I hate it when you go away and you come across the 'Home Fans Only' signs, so I hope we don't go down that road.

Congrats to Martin and all those who made it happen. Both pictures are a great addition to the bar.

I don't understand that.  The panoramic photo looking towards the town end, that bjw posted above, isn't the same as the one shown on the wall?  The sky is darker and you can't see the trees and the sunset that are on the one in the bar..  And why would stewards be cropped out of the stand?  The amount of fans in the pictures is significantly different too..  The relative position of the stairwall behind the terrace leading up to the directors box (with the white edge) is on different sides of the stanchion, in each photo, showing they were taken from different angles.

Don't get me wrong, I am not belittling the great work done to get these pictures up, and I am not arguing the point for the sake of it - but those views towards the Town end are clearly 2 different pictures..

Did the match that this/these pics were taken in get revealed yet?
