It’s impossible to not end up talking politically when we’re talking about the sums of money involved.

So far the club have really buggered the whole ground thing up...at those morning events at BP a few years ago, members of our bird couldn’t even fully interpret the plans for their own proposal, and the least said about the presentation the better.

For me, the club really need this to be water tight and professional. I have zero faith in the club to deliver anything, let alone project this size but I, along with many a fan does see the need to develop and move in to a modern facility.

Funding will forever be an issue and whilst I don’t expect Fenty or anyone else to sling large amounts of their own cash in to the project, members of the community which are vehemently opposed will need some convincing as to why public cash should be wasted, as they’d see it, on a stadium.

Locally there are large shortfalls in funding in some key areas, of someone’s ploughing 7 figures in to a project you could see why some wouldn’t support it spent on the Fenty dome.

I see you’ve taken the time to read the piece then.

The stadium will be paid for in positive thinking and blitz spirit. Nice one.

But the article isn’t scaremongering...but anyway...

Back to the original post, there’s still a couple of fundamental questions; funding and where it will come from because  simply getting a mortgage isn’t that easy.

Will it be project managed properly, will events prior to the build actually focus on important things like sponsorship, community relevance, legacy planning...not just balderdash about having a chip shop or can Nigel take his flask in...

Nothing will change until December.

The FT is regarded as being pretty neutral. Probably the only one left.

Interesting show with Jeremy vine on radio 2 earlier. Seems we're not the only club that had issues with 'locals'. People complaining of light pollution causing an influx of insects! Seems we were lucky with the lesser spotted newt in great Coates



“To put it in gentleman’s terms if you’ve been out for a night and you’re looking for a young lady and you pull one, some weeks they’re good looking and some weeks they’re not the best. Our performance today would have been not the best looking bird but at least we got her in the taxi. She weren’t the best looking lady we ended up taking home but she was very pleasant and very nice, so thanks very much, let’s have a coffee”

Just before the usual suspects start bealing, that article is just an example of how hard it is to access any kind of public regeneration funding, not a love letter to the EU.

Like I said a while back - expect significant opposition if you’re going to be using council funds to plonk a vanity project in the middle of one of the most deprived wards in the country.

These are issues I’d expect the portfolio holder for regeneration to have a bit more of a grasp on tbh.
