Look at how Liverpool have rebuilt a stand, I would assume its higher now than the previous one, I would think the club put a very good case forward to the local council and they approved the extension, so yes grounds can be developed, just not in NE Lincs.

But didn't they buy up all the houses in the surrounding streets to make way for their expansion plans?

If I decide to come to BP on my bike instead of by car, can I leave it in someones front garden for 6d like we used to?


It was only 3d at least that's all my uncle paid a woman in Constitutional Ave.

For ages after seeing him leave via her back passage (the one from the house I mean!) on his way to the Barratt I was convinced he was giving her one before I was told he parked his bike there (at least he said he did)

I recall it appeared to me as a young lad that 1000s of blokes arrived by bike - does no one go to the match by bike any more? A couple of quid to park your bike could still be an earner if potential cyclists knew there was somewhere secure to leave it and you could have a few more pints than if you were driving.



I don't actually want to say I told you so, but, intercourse it, I did

Worth having a go. I did us to lose and draw a couple and we stayed up without winning a game. But that also meant Barnet and Chesterfield continuing to be just as poor

When I typed that I did wonder if it was 3d, it was 6d to get into the Pontoon but we always got in there early and climbed over the gate at the front.

I don't see how you can say this when a director publicly stated he wanted us knocking on the door of the Championship in 5 years. As far as the ground is concerned it's the Board and JF who want this but the council seem to be holding us back. Also a lot of posters on this site don't want us to leave BP but would rather we " develop " it.


What's holding us back is there simply isn't the money to finance a £22m stadium. That's why despite the council giving the club the opportunity to acquire the land cheaply and build a stadium on its preferred site, nothing has happened. If there was any realistic chance that 'enabling development' of the scale that would fund the build, it would be in planning by now. It simply doesn't stack up.

How long has it been since those skateboarders waltzed into town after others had failed to drum up a scheme? Must be a year now.

He might have said something about 'her threpeny bits' but it was rhyming slang.
