Certainly not one of his worst statements. He's not getting carried away but he's not quashing it either. Some very valid points made there in that it is all well and good drawing a nice picture of what a stadium could look like but where is £20m coming from?

Same goes for every other option that we have had...we dont have a pot to p1ss in so its definately not coming from the club.

Seems like he's seen the light.

He's right here: "The real question is about viability and funding. We know from the past that just being positive doesn't make it happen."

As for all key stakeholders needing to be on the same page, well he can take the lead on the club's side. Do it John and let's see what happens.

Where there’s a will there’s a way.

There has never been a stadium site with such universal appeal and an opportunity to regenerate an iconic area of the town. It might not be exactly what John Fenty’ wants but it’s what most people want. Let’s do all we can to make it happen.

Went up to Asdas this afternoon and left via the Wellington Arms exit with the GTFC 1878 inscription above the back arch, turned left into Freemo and saw the Dock Tower straight ahead in all it's glory, with the sun shining on it. A stadium down Freemo has just got to happen. All the stars are aligning, so come GTFC board, let's get on this while the chance is there.

This is the location, it must be made to happen. In the central area of the town, walking distance from the station. A stadium in the centre can create a great buzz on match days (providing there are no dkheads on the rampage) - make going to watch GTFC more than just the 90 mins. Create a fanzone. Have a band playing in the main bar afterwards, increase the matchday spend in the stadium and in the restaurants in the town.

The funding may well come via bids and agreements organised by the Freeman group. If they can organise funds from national chains and commercial hotels as part of any scheme, it may be that the stadium costs are included into any building like the Hull City K Com stadium has commercial concerns built in.
