There are 2 within spitting distance of PL but so small you'd risk life & limb trying to put a flower in the middle. :D

The post match band in the bar and the bouncy castle and organised games for the kids was a big draw back at the Stoop.....I know its another outlay but if it brings in more support thats got to be worth it......All those discussions about the game and watching some of our long time supporters poggoing across the floor will stay with me forever!


One of my favourite memories in the Kings Bar was Mark Butcher randomly appearing with his band. Was a brilliant atmosphere post-game.

Beers before during and after the game used to be a fun part of the match day experience....now they are required on a medicinal basis to get you through the pain of watching an average side in the 2nd tier.
To answer the original question.
You can't solve a problem until you admit you have one.

The Problem the Broncos have starts with the word Mister and ends with the word Hughes. There are plenty of ex-pat northern Businessmen and ANZAC investors in the London Region, but nobody will touch the club whilst Hughes is there and certainly nobody will give him a brass farthing for the "husk" he has created. His intransience to anything he doesn't either understand or agree with has created a toxic club that has seen fans leave in their thousands and his apathy towards that exodus displays an arrogance that he believes money solves all problems.

Hughes Leaves. The club goes part-time and inside 10 years you'll have a mid table Championship side with 1,500 fans. If in that period some other investor comes along and sees the potential, you may see a tilt at SL inside that decade, but as it stands now, with Hughes at the helm, the club are deadwood.
Oldham must fancy their chances in a fortnight!

Breaks my heart to say it but I pretty much agree. The club is a bit of a shambles. A feeling of "us and them", An average side, numbers dropping (even if a few new fans do come to PL, I cant see many staying, what is there to keep them). A gutting situation for LB fans
