The South Stand

Now we are firmly settled into our stadium, wouldn't it be nice if it felt more like 'home'. Currently at Ashton Gate there are three stands named after important people in the history of Bristol City (and, well Steve Lansdown is now part of our history i guess), but that leaves the South Stand without a name attached to it. Hypothetically speaking of course, if it was to be named after a person indelibly linked to the history of our club, who would people choose?

Mark Tainton?
David Lemi?
Steven Luatua?
Alan Morley?
John Pullin?
John Blake?
Lee Robinson?

John pullin. The most capped England international at that time. Captained England to away wins against the AB's and south Africa.

That end was named after Bristol Citys most capped England international. To be honest I dont know how difficult it would be to name the stands according to the game being played. I would say though that the two main stands should stay as they are as those gents paid for them.

John Pullin would get my vote too. Although to be honest I see no reason why they shouldn't have different branding/dedication for football and rugby.
