Echo the thanks to FDB for his posts above, and also for being prepared to put his head above the parapet on here when considering some of the stuff that has been written about the Trust and also to give up his time to volunteer with the Trust.

Frankly if people don't like the Trust or the way its constituted then fine, each to their own, its not compulsory to support it or join, but its the only show in town and if you aren't a member you don't get a say.

As for the club publicising the purchase they were saying stuff on SM media yesterday (with the image below) noting that today's the day and I assume will go with a bigger bang today once they have the keys in their hands.

Once this goes through i will be really interested actually to see how the club and trusts relationship continues. Once the club and Trust are in a legal relationship i wonder if the questions will get tougher.

That isn't a dig at all by the way but i wonder if the questions have been reigned in slightly so we can get this deal done quicker

What a day though, i never thought i would see the day the club owned it's own stadium, Reg would be proud

Fantastic news and well done for all the hard work put in to get here, especially the volunteers at the Trust. I am a proud contributor and will continue. Viva La County Ground.

With how shit things have been on the pitch its easy to get lost in the fact that this is clearly absolutely massive for the clubs overall future. Good work to everyone involved.

Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves? Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here? Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
Crap!

The way construction cost inflation is going, they won't get much more than a coat of paint and new toilets for the Bank for that....

From the Adver

Ď Once the sale has been completed, the work is set to begin almost immediately on adding a roof to the Stratton Bank.

This is expected to take 12 months and cost an estimated £1m. í

At least the roof makes sense in the context of an (eventual) rebuild of the TE. Everyone switches ends. Could be a long way away though

Also, it can then be used entirely for away fans so all seats in the Arkells could be sold to home fans

A roofed bank will be a better view and atmosphere than the town end, I think.

Wait until we have to play the piss stains at home. Shut the Bank and only give them a few hundred in the Arkells.

At least they won't be able to stand on car roofs and look over the bank like they do at their place!
