I see the telegraph are whipping up the Shutes rumours again.

Slow sports news day?

Feels like a really bizarre time to be dragging this up again but looks like he has two new names (Lockwood and Pettitt) now to support his bid. This guy has always made me very nervous - why does he turn up, create a fuss and then disappear for months? Why not come out in Feb when club ended talks?

Also - dumb question but how are they paying for this? Most businesses are struggling to survive - let alone relocating to the Ice Factory...

Well I hope Shutes vision for the new stadium comes off, the images for the new stadium look fantastic and I would still be able to look over the river from the upper if we're not playing well  


I wouldn't say I was the best manager in the business. But I was in the top one.

Didn’t Pettitt go bust? The plans look good , the Marina area looks very cool and it will be with wind off the sea in January

Odd that Shutes chooses to break his silence now after all this time, this is the first time we have actually heard from him right? To be honest, Id take either the Docks or Freeman Street right now.

His comments seem to contradict what JF has said in public. He refers to a cash offer that repaid all the debt, which I assume includes JF’s loan, and the purchase of shares and this seems to tie up with information I had received at the time from a mate who trades with another director of the club.

As others have said all seems strange timing whilst also flagging up issues over the Freeman Street location!!!! Given the current situation and the effect this will have on government spending over the coming years I am not sure the stadium is ever going to get off the ground, literally.

My gut feeling is that he's a project man who will immediately go chasing after the next shiny thing if this ever came to life.
