Would they want to Buy our Club?

And Grade 2 listed buildings?

Just went for lunch at the Air Balloon, and the bugger's gone.

Sticking around a while yet, thanks to a gift from a generous angel.

Anything’s possible but as it stands it’s not an industrial estate, it’s a football pitch on a mound of earth, surrounded by floodplain with some shipping containers on it. It isn’t worth £3M.

You say that but that building behind the City stand in Spinakker Park is on the market for a cool £1M and I think Gantry Rail is similar.

I mentioned on another thread recently the potential for industrial/commercial use on that land. Now it is built up out of the flood plain, the land has massively increased in value, and that might be the exit strategy.

I should know, I'm in the business.

The covenant, if anyone can find it, wont be a barrier to someone with a good lawyer.

10 out of 10 for footballing zen

Exit strategy? Selling off the land for development. Not unheard of in football... so where would that leave the club?

Looking on right move at similar sized development plots in the county there’s one at the back of Spinnaker Park for sale at £650k. So yes it’s not worthless but if you wanted to buy the football club as a going concern is it really going to be worth the £3M asking price? I think not.

Bloody hell fire , where the heck did 3 million come from ? Would have thought  one million for club and ground would be over priced for the state both are in at this moment in time . That's of course coming from a skint OAP who been now living on the pension  ,all donations greatly received how ever BIG or small LOLs.
Bloody hell times are hard for us pensioners you know , it now cost a fortune to keep my sunseeker 100 yacht  mored on the south coast ?
