I posted PNEs business plan of how they funded their new stand on here twice, now that's Fact.
No sugar daddy or expensive equity.
From memory it's by PwC or Delloite can't remember which.
I think we both agree how it could go forward  Cool

The Championship seems to be the target that we aspire to as a minimum? Here are the figures for 2015/2016 which are the latest available. Of the 24 clubs listed only one showed a profit with another (Bolton) not submitting figures at the time of the report. How on any level is a football club supposed to be an attractive investment? Just to give you some idea of what some are claiming. Letís just suppose the club was to show a 10% profit? That would be a staggering achievement based on the figures here? In the event there was 10million spent on the ground it would require a turnover of over 120 million after corporation tax to get your money back. The club currently turnsover 4 million with no profit on gates of 6000. If you doubled the gate to 12,000 as a rough figure the turnover would be 8 million. Assume another 2 million for tv etc and in the event that the club could perform a miracle in comparison to this report and show a pretax profit of 10% for 12 years straight after corporation tax an ďinvestorĒ would get their money back. Thatís right, not have anything to show for it, just get their money back and thatís if the club performs a miracle. This is also based on the fact that the ground was completely sold out every week (using the 12,000 capacity target) and not taking into account the fact that you have got to build the development in the first place which could add a year or two? Alternatively the investor, and I use the term loosely because they would have to be an idiot, could stick it in the Nationwide and get 3% guaranteed? Hopefully this will give a bit of clarity to the discussion, but Iím not holding my breath?
How about infrastructure bonds? Or long term leasing of the internal space within the stand, not to mention potential grants from the EFL, FA or enabling development on the land around the ground, do you know what the PWLB is?
If everybody in football was borrowing equity from private investors or greedy banks looking for an ROI in 5 years all but the Premier league teams would be playing in 50 year old run down stadiums with terracing, well they aren't so perhaps you can explain?

...... and, after a few responses, the discussion descends down o the usual s***e.

Respect to those that have tried to make this thread something different, and to follow the original theme.  (You know who you are!)

Respect, really!

Moderators, please close this one down, as it has become a sub-thread of the "Re-Development" thread.

Taken over by the alt_cobblers.......
Grin you make more sense posting your usual Sh1t

Brexit Knight and Schalke, sorry Manwork 04 are far closer to each other, style/personality wise and thus, more likely to be...

...than Frank and Oversees!

Not sure how many locks, mods are allocated (like abstaining at the UN!  Grin)...but what is the point of this thread?
Nah it's just me and my German team is the mighty Hamburg SV, a few of their lads have visited Ibrox.
You still Glasgows green and White Cooly?
9  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Redevelopment Closer Than Ever? on: May 16, 2018, 20:29:37 pm
Still haven't heard where the money would come from to fund it?
Yes you have, I've showed you the Preston business model for their new stand at least twice which you said you read!!!

I was talking to a few Cov fans the other night and they all said the same thing, L2 its fcuking dreadful, sh1t grounds, terrrible away followings and most of all a really bad standard.

I don't know anyone at the club who has an issue with KT. Where as most did with DC. They all appear to be getting on just fine. We enjoyed one of our finest seasons in the shadow of an incomplete East stand.

I can only deal with the facts as I see them. Whilst relegation is a terrible thing, it can happen to clubs for a variety of reasons. This board, and the support in general appeared very happy with all of the recent managerial appointments. Grown ups clear up the mess, whilst children moan about it. I'm quite confident that all the staff at NTFC are working as hard as they can to try to get things right. If you can shed some light on any specifics that will reinforce you point, feel free to enlighten me.
You know what Tel, have you listen to Wilders Speech at Notts County recently? He mentions the East stand in that speech and not very highly either, it might be time to remov your head from KTs sphincter and have a look round at the reality.

I think it's a case of trying to offload him TBH, otherwise he's a very expensive sub.
13  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Cobblers Fans, Please Say Hello on: May 12, 2018, 11:25:49 am
Classic symptoms of bi polar disease, attention seeking, taking sense then none sense, BTW it's # Frank, Overseas, paul Thompson is etc same person and should be banned.
14  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: NTFC next manager on: May 09, 2018, 22:34:51 pm
I think DA is a top bloke and a great coach BUT I don't think he is a manager, it's obviously the cheap way and I fcuking despair that we've given a two year contract to Cornell, not good signs of investment.
I will give my full support to DA if he gets the job BTW.
15  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: NTFC next manager on: May 09, 2018, 08:36:35 am
You guys above can think what you like but I am telling you the decision was made yesterday and itís a done deal .
It just hasnít been announced for other reasons and may not be announced just yet either.
Dean Austin is the Northampton manager .
Best tell Deano then because he didn't know on Monday  Grin
16  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: NTFC next manager on: May 08, 2018, 23:45:44 pm
I know for a fact that as of Monday morning nothing was decided.

It looks like DA is in poll position but according to the Chronic article he needs to know what are our owners' plans for the club.  So do we all.
No decent manager is going to join us unless the club comes out with a clear statement of intent.
Looks like KT needs to make a decision.

20  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Season Highlights/Lowlights on: May 06, 2018, 16:22:01 pm
In all honesty there are no highlights
Oxford away and Plymouth at home.
The lowlights were the rest of the season and still looking at that fooking s***ty half built stand.
