Where next for our great home ?

Had some fantastic times over the years there , and my heart says we should stay and improve our beloved home .

Stood on the terraces in the 80's it was something special 'the buzz' I'm sure others have memories further back , some much further .

But since the all seater , and it falling further and further into disrepair we need a future ; I'm not sure it's where I want it to be .

The current custodians have 'not got a magic wand' but we need one otherwise it is going to mean we have no where to play - since they have taken over they have been tucked up into paying over 2 million quid probably for our former 'custodians' attempt to run a football club like a five star fish factory. They seem good guys , really good one's take somes political agenda away and they are just fans like the rest of us .

How do we 'make good ' the years of neglect to the stadium or move to another without the magic money tree , enabling development or an Extreme Leisure that actually build ?

Where next for Blundell Park , where next for us as a club ?

Don’t worry gents, when I win the euromillions tonight we’ll be moving to a lovely new, red brick 20k seater on the docks.

I wouldn't be as gloomy as that. Yes we need to catch up with the maintenance and sprucing up but a full and vocal BP still sets the pulses racing.

Obviously something will need doing in the future but I am pinning my hopes on a new full length Main Stand and other improvements.  

Unless we really do move up the leagues and get huge investment a new stadium is beyond reach isn't it?

I agree to an extent

But how do the lads fund that ?

2 million down already

6 million on a new training ground

How much would a refurbished /extened Main cost
Another 2-4million probably ?

I'm currently more worried about on the pitch, rather than off it. I don't want to be watching non league footy yet again, even if it is in a much improved stadium.

I think at some point they will bring in investors, as they intend to do to finance the training ground. I reckon they know what they are doing and have a plan, so I'm not going to lose any sleep over ground maintenance. We can't afford a new stadium, so they will have to do what they have to do to keep the old place operational.

Bur the infrastructure is non league and however many fans or stickkng plasters we put on it that's the harsh reality really isn't it?
