Funnily that was discussed earlier but their fans are very angry because they feel he should have invested his funds in their club so don't go wandering around in your Forest shirt imagining free souvlaki and hairy minge on tap

So far so good, I guess we'll have a good idea what they're about by September. A sensible sized squad, a settled team with some kind of identity, not selling players behind the manager's back, not scrambling around on deadline day making a load of random deals, and not sacking the manager when he's doing quite well to replace him with bloody Alec McLesh/Dougie Freedman would be a good start.

Jamie , I'd say that he's invested a veritable fortune in developing Olympiakos ..Their stadium and training facilities are on a different planet to those of NFFC ..

Hopefully when he / they see the state of the Peter Taylor stand they'll make it a priority to demolish it and construct a state of the art structure .

Is it possible to develop the Main Stand? I thought there was a space issue and a problem with sunlight reaching the houses behind?

The situation is what it is Natalie.

I like our ground and would like us to stay there.  Marinakis could just blow the houses up at the Bridgford end if they're problematic to building a new main stand.

In all seriousness what would those house cost? £4-5m? Surely that would cheaper an moving the whole stadium.

Failing that, what about turning it around slightly.

As much as we need a new stadium, I think it's in the right part of town

Given improvements to the academy doesn't effect FFP, it would be nice to see us move to category 1 status. Their training facility for Olympiacos is pretty incredible.

Is there much point building a new stand on the current land if we don't own it? As much as i'd like to stay there.

I'm not so sure that's the problem we might think it is. Yes they could plan to sell, but who would buy it. They've talked for years about wanting the basin area developed ( as well as at the top of London road,) but there just don't seem to be any takers. Look how long that small plot of land where the petrol station used to be opposite the cricket ground has been undeveloped.

I think the council would be shooting themselves in the foot to get too arsey over this.

Haven't we got something like 90 years left on our current lease ????. Given that fact I'd suggest that developing the ground is a no brainer ....

Yeah that's what Villa did when they wanted to redevelop one of their stands.  They bought the houses and flattened them.

That would have been a 4 year deal under the manchild.

If the council are struggling to get people to renovate that part of town, it makes sense to try and buy the land the stadium sits on from the council if possible.

Then the owners can expand & build other revenue streams at the complex as they see fit.

You'd suspect it would need transport links expanding directly into the area from the city but doing it piecemeal isn't the best financial option.

I understand how you feel. You see, it's all very clear to me now. The whole thing. It's wonderful.
