Football league show 15/16 Feb 2014 has Ron stating on camera, it will start late spring this year.
Late stages of appointing contractor (haven't we always been in late stages?)
I'll be stunned in we are digging on fossetts by end of May, but you have to admire Rons' persistence.
If he thought there was no chance of this happening, he would be looking for an exit strategy; which of course is what this could be. Keep the dream alive and maybe someone will once again offer to take over.
Oh well, at least we have another deadline to see come and go :nope:

Mentioned this already on the highlights thread, people don't seem convinced for some reason!

To be fair not for some time.

This is the first time in a long time there has been much of a deadline, especially one that he has stuck to.

And no doubt there will be some stumbling block that delays it even further. I was a keen believer in all this but after years of bollocks I won't believe anything until a picture of RM and PB with shovels or diggers at FF appears on the OS.

By now, there must be a whole new generation of fans getting excited at this news, having been too young or not even born when all this started!

Indeed, I certainly wont be getting my hopes up, but even so he is making statements now which is a change, so who knows...

Didn't Ron say the same thing last month when he was interviewed before the Hull match on 5 Live radio?

I won't believe anything until I see it on a Ron blog on the official site. I'm sure someone will have explained to him by now that blog isn't short for b@@@cks

Any surprises that the 'within 2 weeks a contractor will be appointed' date has now passed?
