i think it makes sense to do it while we are in the championship

will be less havoc that way

Championship clubs lose money, as we did. A major infrastructure investment is very unlikely without a benevolent owner, like Brighton, who are a bit of an exception. And even if you do, it can still go badly wrong, like Davies at Bolton.

Our current shareholders will not pile in more money, and certainly not on major infrastructure, if we're relegated. If the worst does happen, it's not beyond the realms of possibility that the newer investors may want out.

As for the marginal improvements to the Main Stand, mentioned in another post above, that's just a turd polishing exercise on a structure that will need to either be replaced or decommissioned in the not too distant future.

I read in the 'Daily Mail' that Tony Bloom contributed 93 Mill towards the building of the new stadium.

The club needs to fix the guttering on the Holmesdale.

It was like a river pouring off the roof onto Row 2 in D and E.

I think they fixed the toilet systems in the holmesdale lower tier toilet, so now you don't need an umbrella while having a slash.

There's shed loads of stuff that need doing as a priority.
The club had to improve the press box, new advertising hoardings and flashy lights, catering.

Secondly the Main Stands Safety Certificate, which is on borrowed time.
Improved accommodation for disabled supporters.
Water-logged Holmesdale basement.

I imagine the owners are just fire-fighting to keep the stadium operational, and longer-term development is simmering away on the back-burner.

Longer term development of any significance with a modern 35 - 40,000 stadium will only be possible if we remain in the PL.
