What's up?

 

We aren't getting the facilities unless someone finds a rainbow with a pot of gold... I suppose we can always hope though...

I suspect that the facilities will be installed ready for when we play our annual FA cup tie against Liverpool. :wink:

I suspect there is more hope of using it as a Self Storage site :)

I've heard that tenants for gym, convenience store and cafe are just about nailed down. They might not be open on day one but they will follow.

 

Corney's stated that he'd like seats and fan concourses open first, which I'd see as a commitment to fans.

 

That leaves, if I recall the plans correctly and what "I've heard" has merit:

 

1. Shop unit (my preference would be club shop and better ticket office).

2. Supporters' bar.

3. Executive boxes.

4. Catering and conferencing facilities.

Who gives a :censored: what is done inside the stand. As long as it has seats, a pisser and a pie shop, I'm happy.

 

The empty space above, around, underneath can be empty when it opens for all I care.

 

What it represents at that point is potential. I'd rather have a stand with potential than a block of wasteland without it.

How does that happen without the missing £700,009. Or are you saying we would need the extra money to do the rest Edited by oafc0000

I'm guessing the catering equipment is quite pricey. Commercial kitchens ain't cheap. And that's where the £700k gap could be.

 

All guesswork and supposition from me.

Why? If the owner chooses not use his assets who cares?

 

Fact is there will no longer be wasteland there. There will be potential for the gym/supporters bar/conferencing facilities cos the four walls and a roof are actually there.

The planning application suggests the stand will have 14 rows of 174 seats, plus a few more seats above the entrances to the concourse. Roughly 2500 capacity.

Apart from business on match days who the hell is going to shop at a convenience store in a football stand?

The NIMBYs in and around Carlton way, don't think there is a similar store nearby. (Stand to be corrected). If the access is right those on the other side of the ground will probably use it too.

It's in the middle of a housing estate. Seems ideal to me.

Forgot about that, if it's open 24 hours, it will get good enough trade from the night staff at the hospital alone.

I would like to see:

A gym both for players and the people

A bar for the fans to go in before and after something a bit better then Crawley's.

A food restaurant like a subway. I don't think there's one close by.

Finally, a new club shop

I would like to see a statue of Sidney Schmeltz erected outside said club shop.
