Hearing there is to be an announcement in the next few weeks that the new stadium at PP as been shelved and will now be relocated to Freeman street as part of the Councils regeneration plan. Now I’m one of the biggest sceptics that I know and I’m taking this rumour with a massive pinch of salt even though the person that told me was totally convinced.

So is there anyone that comes on here from the Council or the Club that can quash or confirm this rumour because it’s been a hell of a long time since the last update.

I've heard that peaks parkway has fallen through, but the club has told the council that unless they pay for a new stadium at Freeman street he'd prefer to stay at Blundell Park

It is a complete waste of time Fenty being a relatively rich man, it really is. He hasn't got enough money to be able to do something about a new stadium and he hasn't got the business acumen to be the catalyst for it either.

He is a complete waste of time.

His only hope is that the council pay for it as part of their regeneration plans for Freeman Street, and if that pipe dream ever came about I think we can rule out a league 2 version of the new White Hart Lane.

I'm sorry but no council is going to pay for a new stadium, unless they rent it to town.

Nicely worded, "the club said", he'd prefer.

I find the whole sorry saga depressing now after so many false dawns.

I did quite a bit of work in the towers both before and during the time they were paying the tenants to find somewhere else to live. An official who was there one day, I asked him what they had planned for the site. He told me it was going to be for Towns new ground, that was over a year ago when I was told that. As PP was underway I doubted what he said, although I like the idea, unless it is part of a regeneration plan, I can't see where any funding will come from.


Supporting the Mighty Mariners for over 30 years, home town club is were the heart and soul is and it's great to be a part of it.

Does this mean he will wait another 10 years till the council give a decision either way before committing himself to giving BP a lick of paint? Obviously the painting to be done by the man himself to save a few bob.

Just for once, it would be nice to see an honest statement from the club on this. Either we are still trying to get this done or it's fallen through - whoever is reading this, whether you are Messrs Fenty, Marley or Day or the bloke from Extreme, could you please confirm or deny what we all suspect?

I think it’s a cracking idea, I’ll probably be in the minority though 🙂.

The area isn’t in great shape at the minute and it’ll give it one heck of a boost.

Might go out and buy the white knight, might be worth it. Anyone used to drink in there?
