Every one is a 'Cup Final'.........PMSL. A member of the deluded blue few!!

 

Amazing,

 

Last season`s average gates in L2: Plymouth..............7,042 (they were third highest after Rotherham 7.954 & Bradford 10,322)

 

The difficulty will be that for many teams visiting FP they will be lifted by the atmosphere. Bradford had a similar problem look how many years it has taken them to get out of League Two.

@pn_neil_allen: Start of pre-season training for #Pompey at St John’s pitches tomorrow. I’ll be peaking through the bushes. Wonder if Kanu will turn up?

 

Presumably the most inept journalist in Britain means peeking!

RB, you missed a few urgent tasks

Like build an academy

File your paperwork with companies house

Plan the communities club of the year swindle

Plan this years charity bucket collection

Plan next years USA tour to keep the players away from unfriendly media types.

Colin Farmery, spokesman for the recently formed Portsmouth Supporters' Trust, said: 'This is to do with property. But is it about people making short-term profit out of a property deal or making a long-term profit by using a property deal to develop the football club and turn it into a business which can be sold on five or 10 years down the line?

 

LOL

 

I recommend reading the article in full

The Football League ‏@football_league 1m

#AttendanceStats @MKDonsFC was the most visited ground by away fans in League 1 #AwayDays http://po.st/Q5xvSP

 

That's wrong surely... Pompey were the biggest club last year in the Football League and Fatpipes Park, a historic ground of English football, is the biggest draw? Actually, FP averaged just 436 fans in the away end. Clubs like Rochdale, Cheltenham, Fleetwood, Burton, York, Northampton and AFC Wimbledon were more attractive for visiting fans :lol:

 

Some other interesting stats though. The average amount of fans Pompey took to away games was 894, down 23% on the previous season

 

And in League 2, the average is just 420. So don't believe the propaganda when they say they will take 5,000 fans to every ground, with 20,000 more locked out

LOL... very good, the truth hurts. I think Rochdale are a decent comparison for the skates.

 

The http://www.fansonline.net/portsmouth....php?id=502321 comedy thread (real to them, trust directors, consultants, everyone and their dog who want to be important is commenting) states that they need 30k this and 30k that, its utterly brilliant when you consider the costs involved and the real, factual figures, they are so deluded its unreal.

 

Then take a moment to look at the Tesco designs, they are fabulously landlocked and the stupid c*nts just cant see it... just more talk of pitch rotation and making a 'KOP' end...

 

Landlocked and the south coast has left you behind forever in your fatpipes.

Do we think a 30,000 capacity stadium is big enough? Maybe for the Championship, but what is the long term goal for Pompey? Do we want to get back into the Premier League? If the answer is yes, we should be aiming for a 35-40,000 seater stadium surely?

 

Christ alive :lol::lol::lol:

Call me Mystic Sid, but I have this premonition that Twittingham has, completely out of turn with his fore-runners, gone for a quality-over-quantity squad that will be tragically depleted by December, when Agent Connolly's hamstrings have gone again etc, and they will seeking dispensation to break their wage-cap agreement with the FL to bring in reinforcements.

The capacity delusion is superb, the rest of them all boasting about their extensive (non-existant) knowledge and understanding of the corporate hospitality industry in the region is something to behold... these fools really think they can just open up a lounge at fat pipes and the bookings will roll in!

 

Im sorry, but the entire infrastructure needs a total, uncompromising overhaul at the cost of dozens of millions of pounds (money you had in the past but blew on Sol et al)... add to that the fact you are at least a decade too late, its not going to happen on anything other than a tin pot scale.

Looks pretty landlocked to me, the only bit of land they could push on to is the patch where their new car park will be going, other than that space they are totally surrounded.

 

Good deal for Tescos though

any improvement that they do end up making in the next 5-10 years. will only bring it up to a half decent level than nearly all of the NPC have at least anyway

even some of league 2 will have better facilities I should imagine

 

they are f-ing deluded. STILL going on about increasing fratton park by (at least) 30%..some even want a 50% increase whilst they have just been relegated to division 4 and have no big money or decent players

Holbrook,i share your concerns.Nothing has been said out in the open,all been very secret squirrel.That in itself is normally cause for concern.

 

LOL - -have you only just noticed how the "Trust" operate, buddy?

 

Amazing that such a deal with Tesco has been done after we have just come out of Admin fantastic.

 

So much so that you might think that this has been planned for rather a long time, eh?

The man they hold up as having "unrivalled experience of corporate selling" (yes, unrivalled - nobody else even comes close!) works at the local BMW dealer. A real big hitter.

To be fair to them, the bit of land you mention was always where they would extend. Knock that stand down, turn the pitch round, which then creates some space to build a new Milton Road end (the piddly little stand behind the goal).

 

It won't happen of course, but I don't see how this deal prevents any future ground improvements.

I think they will be making a big mistake going with this Tescos thing. The one thing they had going for them was the fact that there was a large area of land to be developed which could incorporate a new stadium. This deal could stop any future ground improvements simply because no one is going to want to come in and fund it. Rotating the pitch looked like a tricky and costly exercise anyway even when they had some space around it.

 

Unless Tescos are giving them a big wedge of cash (the amount they are giving seems to be shrouded in secrecy) I don't see what PFC get out of it that is worth stopping all potential future investment. I guess they had to get whatever deal they could to stay alive but I think it will see them stuck in that ****ty little ground for good if it goes ahead.

Why all the surprise at the Tescos deal and the worry about their ability to expand nottarf?

 

Maybe the PST knew maybe they didn't, but the developers were always going to kick them out.

 

The ONLY question will be how many fans they get in the next couple of seasons vs how small & cheap a Stadium the rapists can get away with. Once they sort out if they can build on wasteland that has an SSi attached to or whether they really have to go outside the Island the real fun will start.

And I wonder how they're going to cope with parking. People pretending to shop at Tesco so that they don't have to walk very far to the ****hole?

 

the traffic round there is bad enough as it is on non matchday

an Ex lives about 2 mins drive from there, into southsea and the roundabout by fratton to get towards the M275 was ALWAYS busy.

 

throw in a Tesco and all their new hordes of fans.

going to be a mess

Don't be silly, they'll close the Tesco's on a Saturday when the skates are playing. It's not as if it's a busy day or anything.

 

Of course, silly me. With 20,000 plus turning up every week I suppose they would have to close for safety reasons :rolleyes:

Nice little hint on there that some of the returning few think that Brentford was just the start, and that pitch invasions and setting up meets with visiting firms of about 20 dinosaurs from Football Factory Past will be the norm this season.

 

As for the map - that is looking like a tight space to squeeze any ground redevelopment into...

 

In fact it looks tight to fit that Tesco in, so I'm wondering if the artist has been asked to give an impression that is slightly shy of accurate.

In reality they could end up in the shadow of a massive store, but with some nice tarmac to park a burger van on.

 

If Robinson's deal goes through they will have no room to move behind the fatty end, and while there would just be enough room to spin the pitch, there would be no room for sensible access to the new ground, so it would be unlikely to get planning permission - especially with the increased lorry and customer traffic of a Tesco next door! :scared:

 

Good deal though.

 

 

 

 

 

For Robinson.

I wonder how Tesco staff will cope whenever there is a 'Big' match at Fratton?

 

Will the notorious 657 mob arrange 'meets' with visiting firms at the Fish counter?

 

Will Westwood and his merry men parade through the store providing background musak and decimating the drinks section before the game?

The issue with planning permission is that most planning committees tend to vote with public sentiment in mind, irrespective of the planning details or the impartial recommendation from the planning officers. Councillors on planning committees are notorious for not being able to vote as they should on large scale applications. Their limits are roof extensions and new garages in my experience.

 

So in this case I'd expect them to vote it through even if the planning officers recommend it is turned down.
