Does this effect anything? Or is the stadium just for the football club?

The football and rugby league clubs are supposed to be sharing the new stadium. This latest setback is not good news. Does the new stadium fairy actually exist?

One of the main reasons for the stadium delay (and now the builder pulling out because of the delays) has been the "old" owner of YCK constantly throwing spanners in the works & legal threats. The latest hurdle adding to delays is a judicial review put forward by Vue cinemas, which was prompted by Guildford and his councillor mate. He's effectively killed the club and wants to continue doing so.

 

The bloke is still doing all he can to cause problems and people in York are suspicious of the "new ownership" as they haven't officially said who is actually involved in the consortium behind Jon Flatman, added to the fact Guildford is still in charge of the Knights Foundation it just smells too fishy to be honest. 

 

We had basically the same thing with 3 new directors in early 2015 and that was shown to be a front, so until they come out and prove he's not involved and say who is, not many are getting too excited.

You may have expected with all the good news about the new ownership that the club's Twitter account would have been full of it. And yet the last effort appears to be a retweet about a John Guildford complaint about process on 29th Nov.

I wouldn't know. I'm still blocked.

 

I imagine John's refusing to hand over the passwords though.

Got to agree with Simon's comments. I find it worrying and can't understand why the other members of the consortium have not been named. It's sad that the fans feel this way but we have been in this situation before and won't be satisfied until everything is clarified.
