OUR FOOTBALL PITCHES ARE SHIT CONFIRMS COUNCIL

To celebrate Bristol’s role as European City of Sport for 2017 here’s an extract from ‘Bristol City Council’s Playing Pitch Strategy Overview’:

Football

And here’s the city’s sports sermon according to the Rev Rees:

“Sport is a great leveller – it breaks down barriers, helps us find common ground, gives us hope and inspiration.

“I am committed to ensuring that all of our young people get the best possible start in life, and the importance of improving access and participation – not just in sport, but arts and culture too – across the whole city cannot be underestimated in that respect.

“I want Bristol to be a city that champions equality and diversity; somewhere everyone can participate in success.”

“Sport has given me so much in life and I want everyone to have those same opportunities to flourish, both on and off the pitch.”

You better get started sorting our football pitches out, Marv. Especially as you’ve made it one of your beloved equalities issues now …

    I think if he wanted to give young people “the best possible start in life”, rather than spout tedious sub-Blairite drivel, he’d be better off looking at the town’s underfunded schools or cockroach-infested temporary accommodation rather than “improving access and participation – not just in sport, but arts and culture too”.

    The problem is also that because of a huge dearth of available all-weather pitches, grass pitches get over-used and when we get a wet winter, like most years now, the pitches quickly turn into unplayable quagmires. Players then get injures; I have now witnessed 3 broken legs and one broken wrist amongst junior players (girls and boys) because they were playing on ploughed surfaces.
