As I haven’t noticed any mention elsewhere I thought I would add it myself. Most successful promoted club since 2007 with fifty one points. Nine wins with three way from home. Crowds averaging around 17000 with two over 20000, one nearly 27000.

You can do it but you need facilities to cope with professional sport and a clear plan. Bear in mind whatever system is introduced you won’t all go up next season and some of you never will.

Again well done us.

mmmm! you didn't look very hard then. The way you presented that statement came across as being pretty full of yourself, if that wasn't intended a good edit is required.  I do not believe there was any sour grapes at Bristol managing to stay in the Prem. This year that league was pretty tight was that because everyone else were poorer in quality or was it because you were that good - will you sit as high next season? perhaps, perhaps not. Without Mr Lansdown you wouldn't be up there now, even with your crowds it was the big bucks of SL that did it (Remember how close Doncaster came to blocking your promotion bid), and I wonder if your club is one of the clubs trying to cower behind the shield of Ring Fencing? If the shield doesn't pop up to protect you you may well find yourselves back down here in the Championship wouldn't that be a shame? I hope not, but don't count those chickens until the eggs have hatched. 
Onward and Upwards C'mon Donny!

Well done indeed - great support from fans & the owner - and at long last the organisation to get results from the quality players.  Remember the poor relations in the Championship and organise the odd pre-season match against us so we can really appreciate what a good team you have become.

Funnily enough, the owner of Bristol is one of the leading ring-fencers - might have had a different attitude if they had been relegated I suspect.

Having said that, the attendance figure are very impressive - especially when you consider Gloucester and Bath are both fairly close.

This reads a lot like Bristol acting like an American teenager, doing that ridiculous self-clapping and "yay me!" thing. 

I love the hypocrisy of them being one of Premiership's weakest clubs and constantly relegated yet they want to pull up the ladder with ring fencing once they are promoted.
