Despite Swann’s attempts at reassuring supporters, I find myself becoming gradually more concerned about the issue. Few Rambling thoughts:
1a) At what point can they club afford to pay rent? This is a vague statement; is there contractually a point in which the club is obliged to pay rent.
1b) At this point- how much is the rent?
2) What happens when the land inevitably rises in value? The Gallagher retail park has expanded ever since its creation 20 years ago; Couple this with the potential of the Lincolnshire Lakes project and Glanford Park/Land could worth a significant amount more than the £11million debt wiped off- a debt mostly accumulated due to reckless spending by the owner.
3) Will the club see any profits made from the development of land or does this go into the Coolsilk pot?
4) What are the actual plans for the ground? I attended the consultation some years ago now in which the club released a blueprint and a couple of architect impressions of the exterior- since then however, as far as I’m aware, nothing else has been shown. No interior impressions, nothing. What are we actually building?
Good post above, Josh. The suggestion about the club moving to a Brownfield site is something that has always appealed to me. My only other suggestion for location would be the land where Brumby Hall currently sits- I have no ideas if there are covenants protecting the facility etc but it would put the club right back at the heart of the community again.
