No

Just because someone is analytical neither makes him bitter nor full of hate. You may not agree with his views but that doesn't make you sweetness and light and full of devotion

A season ticket is for 9 months. That’s it. Hardly long term.

We’re PROPOSING, or planning, to build a new stand. Just a stand, with a few infrastructure payments. Spurs were changing a whole area by building a new stadium on a plot next door. That was huge compared to one stand where the only obstacles were and are 6 houses and some infrastructure payments. It’s more likely that it’s a question of do the shareholders want to start the job to finish it or are hoping they’re bought out before everyone really questions them and/or there’s new safety issues and certificate problems with a stand built in 1924.

The next delay will be getting another manager in and will he be ok, not whether we’ve got our recruitment or funding sorted out. If we’re always going to wait to see if the next manager is ok in this day and age then that stand will never get built unless we’re bought out, which is how I see this going, eventually.


The point was that, whilst we are customers, it is not quite the same as being a customer, of, say Tesco. It is more emotive to us.
It may only be 6 houses but they will, I suspect,be negotiating hard and have to have somewhere else to go. (Although I am not aware if they are private or local authority properties, so this would make a massive difference - so I could be talking cobblers there, to be fair.)

I agree that it’s a question of what the shareholder objective is here, which is why I suggested it would be nice to be kept abreast of the position. However, they’ll never tell us that so, a bit like Westfield in Croydon, I’ll believe it when I see boots on the ground!

It’s just 6 home owners or renters and a negotiation that shouldn’t hold us back for any length of time. I wouldn’t take that as an excuse or reason. That would be nonsense or just show we aren’t serious, which we may not be. Again, why pay off 6 home owners if we don’t want to start to finish the job?

There will be some hurdles but I suspect the biggest ones are in the minds of the shareholders. My money is on these current owners/shareholders not doing it.

We had money set aside from the US investment , earmarked for the stadium

No sign that’s been spent

A private equity investor expects to make big gains through deploying the capital

If we really don’t deploy it they won’t be happy

You can ask me directly if you like.

The answer is no, what I tend to do in my life is look at things objectively.

Parish has indeed presided over our longest tenure in the top flight but my view is that is somewhat more through luck than judgement.

He has definitely done some things well, but in greater numbers he has made gaff after gaff when decisions needed to be made.

Parish is going nowhere though, so his fans and his critics better strap in for the long haul.

I find it amazing that some people are saying 'its only 6 homes'. We have had a long thread regarding the moving of the fanatics to block E and people being upset about being shifted out of a seat, yet when it comes to someones home, where they may have lived for years, having friends and possibly family close by, and it is considered as something that should be easy and acceptable.

does anyone know if we resolved the land issue with Sainsbury's.

The new stand encroaches by a few metres onto the car park land owned by Sainsbury's.

I believe when planning was approved we had no agreement with Sainsbury's regarding this strip of land.

I've heard nothing since to indicate it's been resolved.

Clearly we can't start work until this land has been purchased (but we you can apply for planning permission as we did)

I wasn’t referring to the residents’ ‘upset’ in my post. I was saying that if the club was serious about this new stand they would and could sort that issue out without many problems. It’s if they want to is the question.

I had forgotten about the land owned by Sainsburys. But again, if we were serious then negotiations would’ve progressed and a deal would’ve been agreed. We aren’t proposing to do anything to the supermarket store, so it’s really just land we’re talking about.

The current shareholders don’t seem serious on this to me and we’re really keeping the club in the Prem so it’s attractive to sell. I wish someone and someone serious and with good intentions would takeover. Parish can’t take us any further and the Americans haven’t done what they proposed and can afford to ten times over.

Parish has overseen us start the season many times without necessary players. No striker how many times? Mad changes in playing style without the players or funds to do it or any proper or any due diligence at all on the new manager. There’s also poorly handled things like the HF and 400 in E block. Sure we could have worse chairmen, but these kind of repeated problems seem to be met with a locked office door or a no answer on the phone in ‘Smoke and Mirrors Ltd’ in Soho with Steve praying or not looking at the problem and hoping it’ll be okay in the end or the manager will work a huge miracle again.

I do understand and pretty much agree with how we’re dealing with the football finances right now because if we didn’t we’d be relying on funds that we don’t earn and be guaranteeing a return to the championship within the same timeframe between of the signing of Benteke and/or Sakho and now, and that really is where we’ve lost control of finances because the infrastructure and lack of doing anything about it was so poor at this or championship level.

Parish is the chairman until they’re all bought out I would’ve thought but that doesn’t mean he’s immune from criticism.

5 of the 6 houses are council houses, whose tenants rent from Croydon Council

1 of the 6 houses was bought from the council many years ago under 'right to buy' and the owner lives abroad and privately rents it our to tenants.

Word on the street is that CPFC have opened a dialogue with the tenants with a view to finding them alternative homes in the local area.

No idea how things are progressing with Sainos

Slow steps then. Probably because they aren’t serious and would rather sell the club with planning permission. I wouldn’t blame them in a way but there are seriously wealthy American shareholders and investors not stumping up for something which is a necessity and something that was spoken about/agreed, and they can afford.

Maybe they might take the plunge if we rebuild the team successfully after sales of prize assets in Zaha and/or Bissaka but that’ll be the only way I can see us being really clear and very confident of survival for several seasons into the future, if we spend well of course. Otherwise it’ll be us struggling to compete financially because we don’t have the new stand, and we won’t build the new stand because we can’t be safer from relegation because we can’t compete financially.
