Great News. Thank you, whoever you are.

Now, what should we call the Stand  :dontknow:

I suggest: The Mick Wright Stand.

Is that the plan?

An anonymous sponsor donates 25k but specifies it has to be for the Stand sponsorship, so supporters can choose what the Stand is called?

I only ask as I thought it a bit strange that it was an anonymous sponsor, but they were specifying what the money was for. If their name isn't appearing on the Stand, I couldn't understand why the Stand was involved instead of it just being a general donation.

I understand now.

Great idea Mike. I'm all for it!

I'd have thought the players would want to know which direction the Club is going on this, before committing themselves for next season.   :dontknow:

Good news in that Kings Lynn Stars started their speedway season with a home meeting tonight and it was a sellout.   It shows local Sports fans are ready to get back to watching some live Sport.

What was that?

1500?  1600?

Anyone see the letter and gifts the Foxes Chairman sent to the supporters in the post, prior to the game?


Dear Supporters

Ahead of the clubís first FA Cup final since 1969, I wanted to take the opportunity to mark the occasion and thank you for your incredible support.

Enclosed is a selection of gifts from us to you, which I hope will bring some extra magic to your cup final day, whether youíre lucky enough to be among those supporting the team at Wembley or supporting the team from home.

Weíve missed you this season. Matchdays simply havenít been the same without you. And after 52 years of waiting, I know how much passion and energy a full contingent of the Blue Army would have bought to Wembley.

But make no mistake. Our aim is to make these occasions a regular part of the Leicester City experience. We will be back. And, in the meantime, I know those at Wembley will carry the roars and passion of you all.

Foxes. Never. Quit.

Lost 3-1 today.

The nightmare is nearly over.

Normality is (hopefully) just around the corner!

True B & G and of course if things had been implemented sooner in the UK and in many of the other so called big economies there probably would not have been a world wide pandemic at all.

The World dodged a bullet a few years ago with SARS. If the developed world had continued research into that (more than they did, as apparently the work they did do was invaluable to the covid 19 research) then we would have been more prepared for Covid 19.

The reluctance by leading Nations to spend money on something that may happen in the future, came back to bite them big time.

The leading nations didnít plan to fail, but certainly failed to plan.

Capitalism at its finest!

With things being serious why are we opening up Monday. Makes you wonder who is pulling the strings.

It's a balancing act.

I wouldn't like to be the person having to make tthe decision.

Personally, I feel they are setting the scene in case of some degree of further restrictions. They know there will be an increase in infections for a while. As long as NHS can cope with this, lifting restrictions will proceed. If there is a danger that it will push NHS to the limits, then they will clamp down hard on it.

The success of getting numbers down is due to lock down. If people don't mix socially, the virus has nowhere to go.

Makes you wonder how sooner the restrictions could have been lifted if more people had followed the rules instead of thinking they didn't apply to them.

Nice to see there was no silly price hike. :scarf: :scarf: :scarf:

With only having 625 v Torquay, keeping current pricing structure appears sensible.

Squad building time for next season.

Obviously we don't know who IC intends to keep from the current squad but with the possibility of 2000 league players looking for clubs very soon, who would supporters like to see at Lynn? Let's keep it realistic but ambitious and restrict it to players that we know are available.

Where do we start? Looking around, there already appears to be quite a few players available that fit the bill.

SC just tweeted this
"They are back. After a great meeting today with our SAG group 1,600 fans will be back into our final home games.  Ticket details circulated later - members and season ticket holders can buy 4 tickets and they will go on general sale at 6pm Friday.  Letís get The Walks rocking"

A few cars and people at Walks around midday today.

I thought we were on for hearing something a bit more exciting than this, as we more or less already knew it was happening anyway.

Only runs to 2024 according to a story on the Trust News pages.


AP, I think that refers to the Walks Stadium being registered as an Asset of Community Value, and is nothing to do with the rumoured Covenant.

ACV's have to be re-registered every 5 years.

These Covenants are not as difficult to get removed as they used to be.

If it made the Council a few Bob, and released the Council from their responsibility towards the  Walks Stadium, my money would be on it being possible to do.

Town centre grounds should be embraced but maybe I'm just a legacy fan!

Only a few years ago I would have said the same. If there was a proven plan to show that its possible to bring Walks up to the standard required, I'd love it to work.

Sadly, I don't think that can happen.

As for the car park being laid at Hospital End that would be up to the club not the Council.

Correct, but so would the Tennyson End, which is why "ownership" was transfered back to Council.
