embarrassing  non league ground.

Evidently you've never actually been in a non league ground, either that or you've never been to Sixfields.

Neither would surprise me.

If you think Sixfields is an embarrassing non league ground then you are an idiot. Not just an idiot. A **** idiot.

Guess I clicked the wrong quote part, It was aimed at Beds for his comment about it being a non league ground. Sorry!

I must admit to being over generous with my comparison with Sixfields to an non league ground..Its far worse, most non league grounds have enough capacity to allow growth they also large supporters bars/ function rooms to cater for 100s on match day, we dont.
Our stadium is pitifully inadequate on so many levels and is the main reason we cant escape league 2.
The fact Kelvin thinks its ok for now doesn't make it so, its not and never was or will be.

4 teams in the National League have a bigger capacity than us.

Of those 4 I'd suggest the facilities there are crap....Wrexham...old and relatively poor. Gateshead....Not a football stadium....Leyton Orient.....about the only exception.....Halifax......

Thats the only ground, that i have been too, where as an away fan, I have been in three different sides of the ground.
Yes, that's true. Done it at Gigg Lane Bury too, though being in the Main Stand in the mid-eighties, when our away contingent amounted to literally 10-20 fans wasn't the official away section.
In that capacity, all four sides at Mansfield!

It was not an 'ouch' or anything of the sort...just a banal nothing mis-placed jib at Beds, which fizzled out like a damp Catherine wheel!

Not forgetting Chesterfield, Stockport...and York Street, Boston would certainly give us a run for our money if not York themselves!

I will give you Chesterfield, - Stockport on capacity is ahead but a poor dated ground - but Boston? - too many Lincolnshire real ales I think - their ground is absolute s***e - in fact so poor there are plans for a new ground although surprise surprise development had run into problems!

A football club should always have a ground
 big enough to cater for its catchment and achieve its full potential.
Having just 6300 home seats and able to cater for just 1400 visiting make Sixfields not fit for purpose when you consider we have a 300,000 people living within 10 miles.
Those non league teams you mention and all others do not fail on this criteria.
We have to acknowledge these blatantly obvious problems and deal with them.
 Kelvin cant keep avoiding the elephant in the room by brushing it under the carpet because even his most fervent followers will one day notice it.
Time to seek investment into our infrastructure methinks.

.......we have been in existence for 121 years and arguably your point on development for sustainable growth has been valid for at least the last 50 years - does it not cross your mind to blame KT (owner for less than 3 years) is just a little bit unreasonable?

Why didn't you say that first instead of throwing out a random incorrect anecdote.

If you are talking capacities, and you are...they are all fair shouts. Stockport is higher capacity than Sixfields, packing Boston's terrace behind the goal (Beds will love that) as said will bring York Street very close.
