Was there much point buying a new training ground when players get 4 days off in a row anyway?

Because it means that Power can stand there and ping golf balls at them if they don't run about enough!

Power is buying it for himself. He is slowly reducing the club bit by bit. Swindon town is actually going to fall down.

Looking at this forum, Twitter and Facebook has been about the limit of the Advers 'journalism' for the last couple of years.

Still can't believe the same old questions are being asked about why we actually need a training ground, the fact that we haven't always been able to use Calne makes it an obvious necessity surely?! Anyone know if Cassidy is going to be looking after the training ground as well once it's up and running?

It's sad really. You think they'd have a small network of contacts around the town who could dripfeed them information now & again. It's no coincidence that you posted news of the planning application on here & a day later it's their main sports headline!

Hang on. I might have missed it, what's Williams' favourite cheese?

The sad thing was way before the media blackout from the club it was blindingly obvious that the Adver could rarely be bothered to send someone to cover the club and then they just grasped the 'ban' as an excuse to shunt the blame for their lack of interest onto the club, a position thart many fans seem to have accepted.

Interesting on how much this cost, suspect we will be looking around the same.

It'll be interesting to see how this pans out, but my suspicion would be that we'll be looking at nothing as grand as that.

Chucking money at it doesn't necessarily guarantee you anything...I went to Nene Park for reasons other than football, and it was a first class example of what a lower league club should aspire to, in terms of training facilites, community usage and development. However R and D are no longer in business.

I'd have thought as long as we've some grass that Luke can lob some cones on, Power will be happy.

You wont get championship quality with cones and a rutted pitch. I wont call you out for the down points, but Lp said he cant make nowt till the championship. The little darlings wont want to play and be covered in mud, therefore it should be a good facility (insert clever latin quotation here)

Players won't give a shit about training facilities. They're interested in money and if they will get a game or not.
That said, a decent training facility is always a bonus.

Its better for youth development though.
