You quoted it originally under the banner that your figures can't be challenged as costing just over 3 million. Yet it cost initially 5.2 million with a furthe 1.8 million spent on the corners and additional interior work.

So that stand that you have based a substantial part of your argument around, cost nearer the 7 million mark. A "mere" 4 million over the figure you was using to bolster your argument. And more importantly it wasn't subject to ongoing legal action.

The truth is, there is no comparison that you or any other person can draw when it comes to our very tricky and unique set of circumstances.
Those corners are a different phase to take up the capacity to 30,000.

For 3.5m (speculation and guess work based on previous disclosed costings) I expect a damned sight more than 10 boxes a couple of bogs and a function room.

Who was in the 5500 crowd (1000 strong Cobblers following) when big Jim Hall scored the winner, 1976 at the decrepit  Vicarage rd?
Another club showing what happens if you steadily  build up your clubs stadium and grow the supporters  base .
Maybe one day the penny drops for us?

Can any of the self pontificating 'experts' who tell us they are in the know, tell the ultra patient fans when exactly progress will be announced and also work started on the expansion.

I WON'T HOLD MY BREATH!!!
I believe they may have pre guessed the secretive plans and highlighted their limited benefits and serious pitfalls to our club which has probably led led to a major rethink?

It would be nice for something revolutionary to be announced shortly  that really opens up all avenues to building up our club and supporters base not just the 'finishing the East stand' mantra that speaks volumes as to whats coming.

' having the East in hand' but no one actually knows what this means or entails? Two years and they haven't offered up their proposed plans costs, its pros and cons.. nothing can be classed as private/secret that can be stolen, copied or containing intellectual properties that need paying for..Nothing.
 

or do you mean they just haven't told you? I'm fairly certain they'll have looked into how much it will cost.

I think we will get an update in about three weeks. I come to this conclusion as it was about three weeks ago that we were told we would be updated in six weeks. However, I'm pretty certain the updated update will keep you updated.

You can only really hope an update keeps you updated, otherwise is it even an update.

Cardoza managed 10 years with the same council. That was before we pi$$ed them off, so why would anybody assume this is better? 

In the 19 months that KT has had a controlling stake in NTFC he has changed a lot of things at the club. But he has very little power to push along the necessary permissions he requires to do the work everyone wants to see. Equally, he cannot submit, or speculate about any plans until he knows what he has to work with. I and quite a few others can keep saying this forever just hoping that it sinks in that he is not doing this to pi$$ anyone off. I work most days in this area and would see 16 months as just a start with most reasonably sized projects. With something like this I would be amazed to see anything for years.

What does it take to get some people to understand there is no update, there is nothing to say. Just wait, be patient and try to get back to what is our role, namely supporting the team. Once any development is announced, we can all get on his back and push home the decent ground mantra.

Hi Tel,  Totally understand what you are saying, again genuine question but what exactly is the delay and lack of power you talk about?

Do you or anybody?  know the size and exact location of the land that is causing the hold up? I assume that is the cause of the delay

I find it strange that the council did these massive deal of writing off the 10 million loan to the club but then won't help us build a stand that they lent money to do in the first place. that makes no sense. so again does anyone know?

Hopefully this is not off topic but does anyone know why Chesterfield were so bad last season when they have a newish ground with really good corporate facilities?

Some on here think that exec boxes are the holy grail but it is not as simple as that as many clubs in league 2 with them prove.

Not sure if a bigger ground or exec boxes gives more hope for growth. Ideally it needs both but have to start somewhere, chicken v egg

Because their team were sh!t. Even with a new ground you still have to win games to get the points.
