How can he complain about dressing rooms after the portacabin that away teams had to use at Owlerton last year?

There might be something in it though? Eagles had terrible home form last year, and Rovers can't win at home this year, is it the poor changing facilities that's getting the away teams fired up before the game even starts? Maybe Rovers should be made to use the less comfortable away facilities until they start to win at home?

Is that house at the top of the car park still for sale? It could be a stumbling block for future planning applications, especially if the club wanted to develop the car park or the railway end at the back of the new stand. If renting the property out would realise enough to pay the mortgage or business loan, maybe the club should buy it? Even if they sold it on they could split the land and keep the garden on the stadium side of the property to add to the plans for small business units at the railway end. Also it would be one less local resident to object to future development plans.

Also if any of the houses that overlook the ground on Post Office Road came available, maybe the club could buy them and rent them out to genuine Rovers fans who would be more likely to be good tenants. Any loan would be paid off in 20 years and the club would either have an asset which brought in regular income, or own property that wouldn't impede future development plans, and as in the above case, there would be fewer local home holders to object to planning applications.

It's the players and the coaches that have continuously let us down ever since we beat Cas in 2012. Things have stood still or gone backwards on the field ever since, but I don't think its the fault of the chairman, the coaches have had a big enough budget and should have achieved more than just the league wins.
