    Exit Jack Brownsword way, turn right, at the roundabout turn right, 1st left, couple hundred yards turn right.
    Don’t go for a few months though.

    …. could be or maybe someone talking out their back side, either way if someone genuinely knows the answer just say the bloody name of the site and be done with it.

    Baffling why when someone posts some good news about the club that someone who isn’t privy to that information accuses the bearer of the good news as talking out of their backside.
    I made an error in the directions but when it was pointed out I corrected it, if you aren’t clever enough to follow the corrected direction the perhaps you’d better wait for Hilton/White to confirm it.

    It is quibell park.

    Hilton has stated he wants all the teams training under one roof and the stadium to be only used by the players on matchdays. Allegedly there will be investment in upgrading the facilities to include 4g pitches and potentially accommodation for players in the future.

    I like the idea in principle, but again it comes down to funding and timescales.

    If Swann manages to evict us with the next 6 months then we are left ground sharing with Gainsborough and training on a Sunday league pitch.

    If we’re evicted any time from now, do we have permission from the authorities to play at Gainsborough or another stadium?

    That’s a good question, I don’t have the answer and I would be surprised if Hilton does either.

    God knows. You would have thought the national league would seek assurances at their AGM held the other week.

    Come to think of it, if Swann managed to evict us before the end of the 23/24 season we will be screwed anyway due to fixture clashes.

    I can’t see another way out of it other than reaching an agreement with Swann to play at GP until May 2024 at the very least.

    Would Swann evict us out of spite?
    Would it be too complicated to sell it off with a football club claiming squatters rights?
    How desperate are the Swann’s to raise money by selling it?
    Hilton is either very clever or very stupid, I don’t know which but I’m certain we’ll find out in the not too distant future.

    Nice to have a reasonable discussion without the tedious accusations of loving Swann or hating Hilton. Or being frequently told to ‘wait and see’. AA is right to point out that it’s dragging on a bit now. The elephant in the room.

    I tried to follow the directions and ended up on the patisserie aisle in Lidl.

    Fixtures are released a week today.
    I’m really looking forward to that.

    So if you know it’s Quibell Park, fine, then just say it’s Quibell Park without the histrionics, left right up down fire, reads like the bloody Golden Shot ( you won’t remember) it was crap too.

    I always have issues with people who dance around their handbags rather then just say what they bloody mean.

    Well, if I’m correct, the training photos certainly look like the training pitch at Glanford Park.
    But I may be wrong 🤔

    You’re someone who reads something and sees something completely different!
    Did you purposely ignore the words in the original post “Don’t go for a few months though”?
