Don't suppose you could scan in that Newton column could you Andy and e-mail it me, when you get a spare 5 mins? I wonder how he's going to make Neil Kempster fix it.......?

7-9 Million at a conservative estimate with The Glider thrown in.

Why, you thinking of cobbling a few bob together Ted?

Wouldn't be so bad if alot of work was done on the ground, in the current state however I'd hate to go to a game there.
So many people have come and gone, their faces fade as the years go by.
Yet I still recall as I wander on, as clear as the sun in the summer sky.

The PRSA cannot hold any (semi-)professional games, as it received Lottery funding. Spalding anyone?

Parking at FC is a 'mare with their 70 or 80 regulars, imagine 15 or 20 times that for a Utd game...... :o

Unibond standard?

I would imagine if you moved the temporary seating from the York Street stand to Spalding, it would be good enough for UniBond Prem

Lets not even think about traipsing over to Spalding eh?

The club really do need to start looking at and for sites for a new stadium asap, and it'd be nice if the fans were consulted on the design, the last thing we want is a shitty Chester-esque abomination, lets build a new ground with a bit of character.

And if any of York St could be incorporated in a new ground mores the better.

I remember the 80's and 90's a bit different from Shodried. Malkie was always interested in money and never the club, he should be ashamed at how he's squeezing the life out of the club, for someone who supposedly had the club at heart. I wasn't around when Ernest was involved but from what I'm told he was the club through and through, whereas Pat was never really interested.

As for the ground don't think Spalding or Town are right for us as we'd need to do work at both, like Shodfried said we need to get looking for land and get something sorted, until then we'll have to somehow raise the rent money.

One last thing for all those that where complaining about people saying on here we're lucky we still have a club, well we are because if DN and NK had of walked away that would of been game over and it looks like it's still in the balance...

Edit: Meant to say when we do get the land (I have faith in The Chestnuts) it might be worth building things piecemeal even if we have to start with only 1 main stand and 3 uncovered hard standing sides rather than compromising on quality to get it all built at once. We could then add to as and when we can afford?
