Having to pay to watch a kit reveal
at 09:44 6 Jul 2024

It's hardly £6 to see the new kit, it's £6 to access the whole back catalogue of content, for a month. Everyone will also see the kit about 2 seconds after the show on twitter anyway.

At the moment it's a chat from Ashton, Wes, Leif, Stockwell and Skuse, probably interviews right until its revealed and you can walk into the shop and buy it anyway.

It was the same last year with the pitch works, I suspect they don't want people taking photos of any players that may be shown around the ground during negotiations either.

Talking about ‘doing a Liverpool’ when rebuilding the Cobbold
at 13:16 13 Jun 2024

I am pretty sure this would be the way they'd go.

They will likely do the groundworks for the structure of the new stand during the summer, build the super structure, top tier and roof of the new stand during the season, demolish the existing stand at the end of that season, at which point those in the old cobbold will move into the complete top tier, while the new bottom tier gets built during the following season.

I asked him on Monday night and he was fairly cagey about it, I think his agent will have a big say on where he is next year.

Top part of Constitution Hill, Bucklesham Road, or Graham Road (I would say that as I live down there!)

Contracts expiring this summer - and a little prediction for each
at 10:49 8 May 2024

I agree with most of that but I wouldn't be entirely surprised if Vas left and Walton came back in as the number one. He is arguably the better shot stopper and his skills with his feet may be less important next year if we become slightly more pragmatic.

The awards dinner and this group of players and staff
at 10:52 7 May 2024

I suppose you can never completely rule anything out but I don't think he's going anywhere any time soon.

He's very settled with his family here, he enjoys living in the area, his brother is here now too. He came in viewing this as a long term project and I don't think anything has changed. He's got a great relationship with Ashton, he's got his staff in place and is able to leave a real mark on the place and build a legacy.

He's fiercely ambitious and clearly wants to manage right at the top of the game and no doubt will one day but he's also extremely calculated and methodical and at the moment we can offer him everything he needs. He's clearly one of the hottest prospects in managment right now, but equally I would say we are probably one of the best clubs to manage right now as well.

The awards dinner and this group of players and staff
at 10:26 7 May 2024

I was lucky enough to book a table at the awards dinner last night as a present for my Dad's 70th birthday and it turned out to be an utterly surreal experience in view of the way the way the season ended and the celebrations throughout the day.

This group of players and staff are truly exceptional, not only on the pitch but they are absolutely first class individuals off the pitch. Every single one of them was engaging, down to earth and more than willing to sign things and pose for photos. Many seemed truly grateful that the fans wanted to engage with them, they were impecably polite and humble and a credit to themselves. This isn't a normal club and these aren't a normal group of footballers. There is a lot of talk about having the right characters in the dressing room but it was so clear to see last night.

I'm fortunate to know Kieran reasonably well having worked for him since he first came to the club and it was good to catch up with him again last night , everything about him and the way he conducts himself oozes class, along with the rest of his team just a thoroughly nice down to earth bloke. I reminded him that this time last year I sent him a message to say I fully expected us to be in the same position at the end of the championship season and here we are. This time I said I'd settle for European football, so no pressure!

I'd urge you all if you can to watch it back on Town TV, the speaches from Ashton and Kieran are well worth the watch.

It's difficult to see how the club can be any better position than it is now, but hopefully we will be saying just that this time next year.

Phil, any reason why training ground planning app not submitted yet?
at 12:19 1 May 2024

As below there's a lot of detail to add but I also wonder whether elements of the design may change if we are promoted so might make sense to delay submission.

I saw him driving towards the training ground this morning in the usual travelling kit, so I would expect he is part of the party heading to Coventry.

PLC Share Dividends
at 13:21 29 Apr 2024

The shares were worthless the moment everyone bought them.

The other factor is that they are diluted to such an extent and will only be diluted further that even if a dividend were to be payable it would likely be at such a small level that by the time you administered it there would be next to nothing left to share out.

Looking forward to Saturday

I went to Barnsley last year, stayed over in a hotel which was a bit of a novelty and it was one of my best footballing days ever. I've purposely booked a hotel again for Hull to recreate the same vibes this time around. Fortunately I will also be at Coventry too.

How much does a football stand cost?
at 09:32 25 Mar 2024

Liverpool were at £114m for their main stand and £80 for the Anfield Road end stand (albeith that cost likely increased).

The Crystal Palace main stand is due to cost £150m.

Fulham's stand cost £120m and still isn't finished.

We're almost certainly looking at £50m+ for a new Cobbold stand, I'd guess perhaps closer to £60m.

This is what the masterplan currently looks like but I think it's likely a very long way off.

I hope they’re not. Totally different scenarios. Burgess should go, we have cover. Luongo and Mass are at the end of their international careers, Burgess is only starting.

Watering the pitch
at 09:02 27 Dec 2023

The pitch is basically sand, reinforced with plastic fibres, I doubt watering it has any impact on stability at all, it won’t become soft like a soil based pitch.
