We've been at Blundell Park for 118 years, I do like the 19th century but I don't like experiencing it!

Quoted from dapperz fun pub


Other clubs not doing particularly well have built new stadia and some done ok some not so , but if we don’t do it what will come of the club long term ? We’ve got to do it simple as ... just prey it happens


Don't get me wrong - I totally see the need for it financially. What worries me is creating a 'white elephant' that is always less than 50% full with no atmosphere - particularly when it appears to be in a location that few want and is being driven by a company with no experience of delivering such a project. Just putting a bit of reality out there.

I'll go a stage further PSG - it will only be worth doing if an individual is able to put a really substantial amount of money into the club to ensure that the standards on the pitch are capable of sustaining crowds in the region of 8-10k, week in, week out.

Quoted from HertsGTFC
It never ceases to amaze me how fukin stupid people are we spend all that time debating and arguing about PP when it's not even the best site, of we can't choose the most appropriate site how will we ever get the thing built?

Extreme lesuire ? Why would we get into bed with a company that just appears to be a web site and has never built anything like this before?

This "proposal" as it is in reality only that at this stage is essential for GTFC to move forward without a doubt but a number of questions cause me concern,

1 How much debt will it land is in?
2 Have the accountants identified the break even point to service that debt?
3 In reality how many home supporters do the club truly believe they can attract each week that make this work?
4 How much commercial income will need to be generated annually?
5 Who will be taking the commercial units at the site?

The whole thing from start to finish feels very scruffy.

Update definitely required from fetyourfactsstraigt I reckon


Can't understand why this got so many red crosses.

Quoted from RichMariner
You never know, we might eventually go from Cleethorpes playing in Grimsby and Grimsby playing in Cleethorpes to Cleethorpes playing in Cleethorpes and Grimsby playing in Grimsby.


Given that Cleethorpes Town is developing their site at 'Laportes', it could be a long while before they're in Cleethorpes. It's on the Grimsby side of Clee Road.

Yep - excrement football = excrement attendance = excrement atmosphere which would be even worse in a bigger stadium. Said all along that a new stadium would be great but only if we've got a team to justify it. Sadly, at present, we haven't.

Shall we not bother then?

I thought the possibility of a new stadium was a good thing, but going on the myriad negative comments on this thread, it seems most people are happy to bumble along in a dilapidated, drafty old pile with no decent facilities. Who said the people of GY were negative and backward looking?

I particularly appreciate the positive spin from Golfer and Herts, both of whom left GY to live elsewhere.
