Said as if you know them?  They certainly appear to be a contractor on all the projects associated with developments such as Wembley, installing facilities rather than being lead developer of the site.  That's not saying they are small fry, just that it appeared on the face of it to be a good way of taking the next step - they are unlikely to get awarded the lead developer role in a 60k stadium without having a background of full project success.

He's been brought in primarily to put funds into the club. His knowledge in construction is mainly m&e installation and services. I'd guess that being awarded jobs in development of the cg would be used so he can make his money back in the future

Until I see redevelopment in process, it's just another one of those stories.

Always the best policy with STFC

It would be somewhat reassuring if this lot only specialise in sport's grounds where they stand, and not moving them and building shit on the leftover patch.

Many clubs would have a raging hard on over this sort of news but not Swindon fans. We need to keep a sense of reality. Flacid reality.

Their background is one of being a contractor Reg, so not of acquiring land and developing, more having the technical expertise to fit out a development.  I suppose that is probably good news in so far as they are probably not going to be trying to make a mint from land sales etc.  More likely, as described, it's a proving ground that they can do more than install some electrical sockets (being very disingenuous).

Dare I say it, but this may just be what Bilko was referring to that would leave us in 'good stead'.

Quote from: Wobbly Bob
Hope that "other parties" is referring to The Trust.


indeed, but this may be a rival landgrab bid. who knows.

did anyone else go to the Mecca meeting? did I dream it or was it said they didn't believe the club owns the stadium itself, and that a sale would include the stands?

Yeah, Steve M confirmed that when asked on the night.

This development thingy isn't a new thing overall. It was mentioned way back when Power first started dealing with these guys when Luongo was with us. I suspect things may have been hastened by the trust wanting to get in on ownership of the land, but it's not come completely out of the blue. I've seen people suggesting Power is only doing this to stick 2 fingers up to the trust, whereas it's likely been coming anyway.

Look, this is all very well and good but isn't anyone going to make stupid comments about his name?  Clem More Funny?  Isn't that worth someone with actual wit to produce some sort of gif about 'I can hear you Clem More funny?'

And something about cheese.

Is no one thinking of the bollocks?

Sadly you can only view it as Power has realized the CG can be bought cheaper than he expected and seen some $$ signs and now he has someone with credibility to assist, he has to do something for money as he is not going to be signing young players to sell on for big bucks for a few years.

He needs to do something about a training ground first, maybe his new guy can assist with that.

And the other thing I could quite envisage Power getting the land etc and it will go into a holding company owned by himself and friends separated from the club, so when he wants to sell on stfc in the future he will be selling the FC and not the ground or making big profits for himself from it.

For that reason I'd prefer it be Trust owned and then in future if the time was right to sell it on then at least it would be for the right reasons and the best deal.

As the Trust get first dibs due to the ACV designation ball remains very firmly in their court, equally has any indication been given (bar the normal SBC are the devil musings) that SBC would go to open market if the Trust declined - its something I would expect the Trust to see clarification on as part of any negotiations?

If the Trust buy the CG off the council how are they going to fund any redevelopment?

If Power doesn't buy the CG off the council, why on earth should he fund any redevelopment?

It's back to square one. Any new new owner of the CG must have the financial bollocks to fund the new stands etc
