He is not quite there yet.

in the sky with the pie?
I reckon it will be built tommy, but this planning permission will expire, and theyll submit plans for some souless 12000 seater at FF with massive scaling down of the outer developments, just blocks of flats perhaps. sainsbuys power will push this new planning permission through quick so they can bulldoze the hall, and we'll have blackpool situation with maybe only 2 stands built.

the current form on the pitch has been a welcome distraction from the doom and gloom, but you only have to think slightly harder to remember all the **** thats hit the fan of late.
For the record i hope im totally and utterly wrong and were on site and in the championship by 2015.

I have my doubts it will happen, I hope it does but expect if it does it will be scaled down so a lego stadium may be the future, either that or a couple f nets in Sainsburys car park!

Certainly think its time for an update from Ron. Must admit I'm starting to wonder if it will ever happen & I've previously been an optimist.

Why? Everything he says will be classed an outright lie... I think the silence eminating from the club since his three video-escapade is typical of the reaction to Tilson's sacking. He's had his fingers burned by being "open" in the past and he's probably learnt from his mistake.

That's not to say that, when/if work starts, the legendary black and white profile will be changed to an equally-as-legendary photo of him wearing a hard-hat and carrying a spade.

I think it will happen, as Southend and Martin have no future without it. My worry is who is going to pay for it, last i heared it was anything from 50mil to 80 mil, who is coming up with that amount of cash.

Why would the other developments be scaled back? That's where the money is. If the plans are re-submitted I'd expect more extra developments, not fewer.

I've said it won't happen as well. But none of us know and I certainly won't be gloating I'm proven right.

Oh I dunno, seem's some people are having visions of RM in a Sainsburys hard hat trying to dig the first shovel full with a dodgy knee or two!!!

HMRC came along as a witness to the act!!!

Totally agree beefy, just cant see it happening, and we havent got any money! and i cant see sainsburys wanting to build flats and shops, particularly the rumoured morrisons! :)

At this stage in the day surely money will be made from the roots hall plot, and a smaller ground would save a lot f cash, and blocks of flats could be sporadically built around it to no timeframe. this seems more likely to me. it would suck tho!

Maybe because that everything he says has turned out ot be lies !

The bloke doesnt seem to know how not to lie. Why say all funds are in place and we will be putting the site out to tender and will be on site by the end of july when clearly you wont be. I really cant see it happeining and i worry were that will leave us.
