Lets not go down this road again. That stadium debate is long dead in the water.

For the benefit of BTO who again is posting rubbish without letting facts do the talking......but without restarting the stadium debate (Rockerlad)........

The main party against a multi-use stadium at the time was in the Reds camp. They wanted to go it alone.
Town were, in the main, as with most posters on here I'd guess, for the use of a combined stadium, as it made sense then and sense now.

However.....its dead in the water now.

I hope the situation turns out ok for the Reds. They need £10k to cover close season costs, but the recent meeting apparently had plenty of ideas as to how to raise that £10k to tide them over. I hope they get a suitable Chairman and board to run the club in the future (and not foreign fly by nights) and they get their new grandstand.

your hardly in a position to call any team about poor attendances now are you? and no we wont be going bust again far from it.

Well it won't be your current BOD turning it around as they are clueless according to a die hard Haven fan I work with. So that must mean your going cap in hand to Sellafield again. How many times will the British taxpayer have to bail your lot out??
I'm sure the millionaires will be queuing up to invest in the sleeping giant called Whitehaven that have never won anything, have a ground thats falling to bits and have gates of about 600 in a town of 20k. I'll bet that guy who took over Salford had a hard decision to make!!
The race is not always to the swift nor the battle to the strong, but thats the way to bet!

Do Haven 2010 Ltd even own the lease to the ground or is it with the RFL?
