You'll get nowhere citing the facts round here!

In fairness, I think jeeagles was simply quoting the song/chant from back in the day rather than seriously disparaging the mans reputation. I mean, did Alan Mullery ever actually go to Rome to see the pope...?

Anyway, I've never understood why Sainsburys has to close when we play at home. Surely it would suit them to be open, and do a roaring trade in pies, sandwiches, drinks etc? They might need to control the numbers coming into the shop, but if two young checkout girls can achieve that in my local TESCO when lockdown first started, I'm sure Sainsburys can find someone suitable in their ranks.

Noades made more than his fair share back when he sold the club to Goldberg and rented him the ground for £1.2m a year too. Can't really say either had the best interests of the club at heart.

Is it time to organise fan action against Sainsburyís yet?

 


Vive le Roy!

I believe Noades asserted that if the ground deal had not been separate, city investors would have meant CPFC losing the ground after the Goldberg administration.

Sainsburyís are under no obligation to sell the piece of land. Itís the same, if you donít want to sell your house, you donít have to, unless itís standing in the way of a National project ie HS2.

Yes he did say that to defend his position.
No one really believed that explanation for why he continued to rinse the club ten years after he left though.

CPFC can argue that no one occupies this piece of land (no one lives there) therefore no one suffers if this goes ahead. Not even Sainsbury really. A few parking spaces in a car park that is only EVER full up on match days is not going to hurt their trade.
A CPO has been mentioned therefore I'd imagine Sainsbury will sooner or later be backed into a corner and forced to sell. If a CPO is granted Sainsbury will get a lot less than what Palace are currently willing to pay.

I understand that. However, if a boycott of their store made it significantly less profitable then they might be more inclined to sell.

This will ultimately be the stick we beat them with. A tortuous process but if the council start the ball rolling we will probably end up buying under threat of CPO and hopefully then at a price both parties can agree to.

Do you currently do your weekly shop there? The amount of fans using the store, I suggest would be minimal.

The criteria for a Nationally Significant Infrastructure Project is very loose.

Although, a local authority can do it on a private companies behalf if their are compelling reasons in the public interest, which there are.

This is expensive and time consuming. Sainsbury's will probably quote a price at a premium based on how much the club are willing to spend to avoid this.
