Loughborough, I thought the report said that the Council are looking for other sites for a 4G.


If the Council are even considering the Walks Stadium, you'd have to think they would want the lease back under their control.

Investing 250-400k of local taxpayers money into such a scheme, it would have to be made available  to all and not just the football club. I  cant see any Councillor that wanted to be re elected, allowing any Chairman of the football club to choose who can play on it or when, or have it under the control of someone that would obviously put his business needs first.

Certain Manager in one of his interviews has said he is not in favour of artificial pitches.


I can understand that.

Managers will just be considering the football side of things.

Chairmen have to look at the bigger picture and have a more commercial way of thinking.

For example, the Towns biggest Sports promoter doesn't only rely on his sports team to generate income via the gate. He's invested very heavily to make sure there are income streams throughout the year. Even with his major "sport" disappearing up its own exhaust pipe, this has enabled him to make major signings to his team.

Looking at the fixtures in our League that have succumbed to the weather today it seems that only those with artificial pitches are still on.

It got me thinking that could this be the big announcement the Chairman is going to make with regard to next year ? ( as per his last Podcast).  He wants all the Clubs team using the same training facilities so would it not make perfect sense for that to be at The Walks ?  Plus it could be used for all adult games.  Hiring out.  Then used for numerous summer events.   SC ihas the consent to run summer concerts ( up to 4).   This could be a real game changer if SC is prepared to invest in the Clubs long term future.

He does have a massively long lease on the Ground so no worries about longevity.  Is the lease is the Clubs name of SCís as an individual?

Ok ready to be shot down but really what do others think?

I'm sure he'll be looking at all available options.

Maybe some will even be feasible.

Not sure Cleeve can be accused of having an empty wallet GC.  He has pumped a fair old wedge of cash into the club since he walked into the building.  Whether itís his cash or came from elsewhere, heís been the one spending it, and he continues to do so.

As for  him not carrying cash, maybe he feels he is Royaty 😂
just talking from experience

I'm sure you still owe me a BigMac!

It all just goes to show that God isn't the only one that works in mysterious ways!

Mallard. We've had anonymous Stand sponsors. Maybe we'll see anonymous investors.

It will effect the cash flow.

From not having a monthly payment to find, to having a monthly payment to find.

I know which I'd prefer.

Re budget. It would be interesting to know if the budget AL was told he had to play with, and the amount he is now working with, are one and the same.

In fairness to AL, you can only work with what you have available.

Money appeared to be in abundance for the majority of previous Managers, to help in achieving their objectives. That is so obviously not the case now.

Punching above our weight previously, due to "financial doping". Now living a bit more in the real world. I say "bit more" as I'm sure the Club is still being financially propped up by outside sources, and will probably require more of the same if/when the big loan starts to be repaid.

Doubtful that anyone could do a better job than AL is at the moment, with the obvious financial restraints he's under.
