    Poole Pirates 2020

    Like Long Eaton which was specified sport only (and some others). It now has housing on it. Any covenant means absolutely nothing.
  2. The centres at Coventry and Kings Lynn were concreted to allow other events such as Karting. Had nothing to do with other users of the venues, just ways of looking to increase revenue.
  3. The Northampton track has had a layer of shale applied this week as an 'experiment' for stock cars. It is planned to be shale for a couple of months, looking at possibly being more permanent in future. Any team looking for a track for 2019??

    This plays into the developers hands to say its unviable. Should be in a higher league with the fans supporting in good numbers to prove them wrong. National league at Leics will be a disaster. Well done Horton you clown. Putting the last nails into the bees coffin.

    Coventry 2017

    Travellers spotted on site. Metal entrance doors force opened. I expect by the morning all the glass windows in stadium will be smashed and anything else that can be trashed, will be. All despite assurances of security on site. Did Brandon Estates invite them? Convenient timing- funny how its lasted til now for them to appear now theres been talk of a lower tier return.

    Investin brandon has a director Anthony Copeland who is also a director of first house associates. Sandhu is also a director of first house associates. Does Copeland have connection to brandon estates?

    Coventry 2017

    So 12 years to raise £56k. New venue even basic would cost a over a million. So at that rate which would also need the club to keep running to collect it, it would take over 20 years to fund. Unless supporters buy 10 times the number of 50/50. And then you'd still need planning. Sounds like a non starter to me??

    Playing the blame game. He was blaming it all on Horton previously for not signing the lease???

    But they may also saw your tree down, take your fencing away, remove your cooker,dig big holes in your garden, pull your doors and gates off their hinges, remove your garden seating and rip all your electrics out. Its ok though if they put it back for next year.

    Those comments by j heaver are full of lies and inaccuracy. These people are not to be trusted. And it shows to me that there is no intention to put right the venue or run at brandon.

    Coventry 2016

    No planning app put in to build houses. Obvious whats going to happen here. Kick everyone out at year end and let the place fall into disrepair until they get what they want. Oxford, Long Eaton, ring any bells???? Must not be allowed to happen.

  14. Whereas the current belle vue fiasco, sky cancelled meetings weather forecast fiasco, etc etc does nothing to harm the product at all?????!!!!!!!

    Oxford

    Paper are slightly ahead of themselves as planning app only just gone in and not discussed/agreed yet. Although i think we know what the outcome will be..... Thankfully GRA dont actually own perry barr, they tried to, so fortunately looks like the brummies will be safe for a while yet.

    Coventry 2016

    I just dont understand how they are so confident they will be building on brandon. No application has been put in yet and may not get agreed? For sure its very hard to get permission for anything in this area. Even a small development over the road at garden centre was refused? And what happens if planning for houses is refused? Surely permission would be needed to just demolish the current site. Are the hangers not protected in some way. And the proposed new build being an eco site sounds like it would push up costs. Cant see those being met. If sandhu wanted return on investment by selling brandon why put money in a new build that would see him long gone from this world before it started to make profit. Hope the bees and stox find a way to keep going but im not hopeful from what ive read so far.

    Coventry After 2016?

    Not distraught enough to sell up? Builders been sniffing round brandon for years. Was only a matter of time. Sandhu at least still appears to keep an interest. That is the only hope against other venues when faceless corporations have sold out...We await the outcome. Of course the brandon planning app needs to go through first??

    Wimbledon Stadium: Some Important News

    Nothing like rewriting history is there? Just as the football club have done. The dons moved to milton keynes?? Afc have no history with plough lane. And speedway was chucked out by galliard. Maybe if someone had millions to flatter the owners they may have been saved. But some people live in the real world. And a new dog stadium just may have seen them persuaded to have a speedway track there.
