London Broncos Moving Update

The problem for us,or most of us on this forum,  is that we don’t really know what the real financial arrangements were and are at Barnet, Trailfinders or Plough Lane so it’s hard to know what is really driving these decisions.

All I can say is that I liked the match experience at Ealing and I don’t think many people will come to watch a team at Wimbledon just because they can look at an new empty stadium on the other side of the ground. To get any sort of momentum going we will need a very successful team. 

I'd further that by saying (as an outsider looking in) that staying in one place for a while might help in terms of attendances - for me a team that constantly moves about just looks unsuccessful and unattractive to the casual fan/neutral. That said I like London as a club and genuinely want them to be successful so not a dig at all.

I couldn’t agree more. We need a permanent base where we can put down roots. Why we keep moving is, genuinely, a mystery to me, hence my comments that we don’t really know the real reasons for each move. The Wigan v Catalan match at Millwall shows we could be getting more paying spectators than we are getting at the moment.

Half-page ad in today’s Metro

Yeaaa, this is smart (Dons must have come up with this idea, as LB marketing would never have thought of this in a thousand years), as metro is free and available for everybody who gets on the tube.

Here's hoping this is not a one off, and they continue to push this

Looking at my rugby league and cricket diary for 2022 i can only make 3 London Broncos matches as mainly will be at Dragons or Toulouse or up north a few times.

Bonus for me i will 100% go to the Cornwall v Cougars match on June 12th or the day before as will be in England that week before heading off for a week in Amsterdam Holland v England 3  1 day internationals.

 

Rugby League and Cricket the perfect mix:))))

Indeed. Total shambles sadly.

They can’t decide whether to fully embrace the Dons angle or not… so you have a blue and yellow kit for ( for one year only) launch but still with a red logo/badge and all other marketing in red.

Everything is about hedging your bets… while still managing to wind up your existing (and withering) fan base.

They could've just had the blue and yellow as an away kit but as usual they have to complicate the matter

The unveiling of the new shirt was a little underwhelming. I know Offiah played for London but given the new ground, era and new colours, surely they could have got a current and/or former Wimbledon player involved and even announced it, paraded the shirt at an upcoming Wimbledon (they may be planning this)

I haven't had a good word to say about this mob in recent times and that I am sure will continue, but unless I was being pedantic, I cant really fault this design of poster or approach with the Metro. Also, I don't think MoK shag pile does the picture much justice.

Maybe they want the Dons (Broncos) fans to feel fully at home in there stadium.

Maybe but they are meant to be a London team so tying themselves to a League 1 doesn't seem like a good idea in the long run. Maybe they'll rename themselves to Wimbledon eventually.

Good one!

Discovered it through Tim Wilby in Sheffield watched in Leeds and continued when back playing in London.

He used to love Ross Strudwick,s training and his wife's (Lisa ex Aussie international Netball player) aerobics sessions were legendary:)
