You have to say it's impressive and set up for the Premiership.

I wouldn't say I'm envious as their fans are still just as miserable as ours and seem to think they have some kind of entitlement. As for the facility, it's nice and light years ahead of us but I wouldn't say it's is set up for the Premier League, every Premier League team and decent Championship club has similar or better now so it won't really set them apart.  All it is doing is further highlighting the fact that we need our own facility and are getting further left behind.

Exactly that and although there are no guarantees they will achieve success they've certainly got first class facilities which at the moment we can only dream of

Envious? Of their set up, yes. Of the club, no.

I'd say they are more just keeping up with modern requirements, something we can only dream of at the moment and isn't far off what the (unlikely to ever happen) Highworth plans were for us.  Like I say that facility is probably bare minimum for a decent Championship team now, when you see the new training facilities the likes of Leicester, Southampton, Spurs etc have built in the last few years they are on a different stratosphere.

It makes you wonder how we could actually cope if by any miracle we made it into the championship

Just looks like a gym, standard Championship facilities and a big football pitch? What am I missing to make it something to be envious of? They still won't make the PL in the next 5 years.
