Barton, you run your own business. Can you have a go at explaining to some on here the level of irony involved in the fact that the word bank is almost identical to the word w@nk? Although I must admit, Barclays, w@nkers that they are, shine like beacons of success compared to the NAB.

You can write wank on here. Pretty useful sometimes.

Perhaps moving forward we could use the term “gentleman’s relaxation”? I am finding the current vernacular uncomfortable.

We could get the North and South expanded in line with the original plans via mini Bonds from Tifosy.

However, is it worth building on land the club doesn't own?

Again, I think there needs to be a "bigger picture" look  at the land around Sixfields. A Cardozaesque land deal of the area around Sixfields with the payoff being that crummy East Stand being finished will doubtful ever be a good enough deal for the club or the town.

We should have at least gone to the Saints with a plan to let them develop the Sixfields site (and let's face it they'd probably do a good job of it) with us having a better version of Sixfields in the deal or taking over Franklins Gardens.

As I've said elsewhere we should also be looking at other sites too. Sixfields always had a temporary feel and is its shelf life done with in terms of kicking the club on?

The outstanding questions need answering first, which are ,
Have the council given these land/leases over to outside investors on the agreement that they give our football  club a £4m injection from the  subsequent windfall.
I can believe they would just hand it over unconditiomally free gratis?

If so, who decides what  when and where, as if its not handed over to a group that only has our clubs interest at heart, we cant honestly expect anything more than a token gesture dressed up as £4m.

If these questions are answered in the football clubs favour, you have a very decent 12000 capacity staduim with 12 corperate boxes and large supporters bar / functiin room right there.

There is no need and no prospect of NTFC vacating Sixfields for pastures new.  Let's not waste time and effort in dreamland.  The club has a long lease at Sixfields and I am sure that with the right owners the freehold could be acquired or a 999 years lease negotiated.  But there has to be the will on the part of our owners and there is no sign that I can see of any intent on their part to redevelop Sixfields to something like it could and should be.  The problem is that KT is winning the PR war by fudging the bigger picture and blaming it on the Council for delays in sorting out the demarcation lines between the land on the east side leased to NTFC and that land held by CDNL, both of which are under the control of Bower and Thomas, so really not a big issue but one that is allowing Thomas to get away with spin.

Excuse my ignorance on this. If KT and Bower control the club and adjoining land through Ntfc Ventures and CDNL then despite any concern over boundaries how are they affected at this point? The council say there is nothing stopping them.
The issue would be if they then then tried to separate the club from the adjoining land and sell on?
 Can’t they just merge the separate entities and get on with it?

God only knows but do something with the East.

Wouldn't it be weird if all NTFC fans wanted the best for their club?
