I've absolutely no idea what this means  Smiley but I like it.  For me there are a lot of mushrooms in the field at the moment, some of them with interesting side effects.

Basically there are loads of consultant/development companies popping up offering services to clubs who wish to develop stadia etc, however, from my experience a lot of this is purely an aspiration and thus there are lots of plans on paper and in peoples heads but very little bricks and mortar for these companies to show that they can actually deliver, thus STFC present a real opportunity for progress that is reasonably easy to deliver!

Yeah, there intentions are sound, but they do annoy a few who see them as trying to represent the whole fan base.

As said, I'm sure inviting them to the meeting is more of a bridge building exercise to try and get people to pull together. I'm sure we can be as optimistic or skeptical about that as we like!


Good stuff, I await their statement on the matter, painted on a bed sheet, with baited breath.....

Perhaps they should consult the Facebook group and their head cheerleader the odd fellow the Cheltenham fan who seems to think he knows it all

Can we set up a TEF committee and steering group to provide input?...

Looking at GW Reds website, whilst I am not doubting their enthusiasm I would not be consulting with any organisation that appears to have no formal structure (or donating them any money) and they can fuck right off merely for that American shite on their logo alone!

Ah I see...bit like Mr Whippy then. So Morfuni, wants to use STFC to get a foot in the door, as leverage to move on to bigger and better?

I hope safe standing gets a mention by at least one of the supporters groups.

Weren't the Trust open to the idea?

A new Town End filled with a seething, bare chested mass of ultras jumping up and down for 90 minutes wouldn't be a bad thing.

Not all would approve I'm sure.

We'll probably get those clapping contraptions instead.

If that were to happen the GW Reds would explode with joy...

Talk is cheap actions speak louder, but as long as TrustSTFC are involved then I'm sure things are likely to be done correct, Trust had plans of their own I assume these plans are what the club have come up with, so with Trust having their own plans and developers interested then there has to be a middle ground somewhere with it being a 50/50 partnership

Whilst we remain at this level with crowds no where near capacity, with the obvious exception of big followings it makes no sense to move away fans from the Arkells to the Bank, roof or no roof. Wed be losing money on ticket sales for a start, not to mention the advantage away sides would have with their own fans behind the goal.

A turd polishing excercise - the stand needs pulling down.

The only semi-convincing argument I've heard for a roof on the Bank (in its current guise) is that it would allow the club to run home fan promotions like the time the Trust did the schools thingy. No disruption to regulars then.

Obviously this falls down if Power is still running the show.

Long term though the Bank would be needed to move those in the Townend while it gets redeveloped. Yes you could probably scatter them among the side stands I suppose to save on unnecessary costs.

I don't like a roof on the SB because it suggests that it's not being earmarked for much-needed redevelopment. By which I mean knocking it down and starting again. It was falling apart when I was still there.

Sure it will be as someone else mentioned. Get the roof on, flatten the TE, build that, then knock out everything below the new roof and rebuild the SB internally.

This option makes the most sense to me too. There is no way they can leave the SB as it is, as its been crumbling away since the 80's.

On another note, this article lists Lee Power as being worth 45 million. Cant see it myself.
