Fair play to the bloke. Not just sat on the other end of a phone or in a radio studio....


I have an inferiority complex-It's not a very good one though.

Good on him. I don't think I'd be able to listen to the likes of May Dodds without laughing in her face.

It's very tough when facing the type of people who will just turn up to voice their disapproval.  Their mind is already made up and will not look at the big picture, they have a narrow view.  Some of these will also be agents of the opposition.

I can only commend that JF is out there in terrible conditions answering, and facing these people who will no doubt give him a tough time.

Well done to John,

Narrow minded people will always think their way is the only way,

I bet after the stadium and houses have been built,

People will be wondering what all the fuss was about.

A Town fan mate of mine went and apparently the anti-arguments ranged from:-
We need to protect the wild flowers,
GTFC aren't big enough for a new stadium,
The area doesn't need any affordable housing,
Get the immigrants out...

There is a desperate need for affordable housing in this area and with the flats and surrounding tenements coming down in the next few years the new ground development will go some way towards this.

You can buy wild flower seeds and set an area aside for these and wildlife / nature park.

hate the argument that town is not a big enough club to need a new stadium, you have to be a moron to think that's a legitimate argument, it'd have been like saying britains not a powerful enough country to start an empire, so let's not build an army. If we did this and got to the premier league, the locals would be the first on the feel good bandwagon (exagerated hypothetical situation of course)

At the end of the day barra, they are trying anything to not get this built. Some woman on facebook last night going on about trying to get out of the junction from the crem onto weelsby rd, I told her that a new junction or roundabout would be built on the parkway itself to get in and out of the stadium. But no, she wasn't having it, so told her if you want to be negative about the plans, please be sure to have all the facts before she makes herself look even more daft.

I think we have to accept that the arguments need to be made FOR the development rather than respond to the arguments AGAINST. Only a relatively small percentage of the population of NE Lincs go to watch Town and I'm sure many of us have raised arguments against local planning applications we don't like ourselves so we should expect people in the locality to rspond in the way they have. What Mr Fenty and the club need to do is to argue positively for the development not turn it into some slanging match which I suspect is what Cllr deFreitas wants.
