Been discussing with someone about FFP etc. As improvements to facilities is not counted toward FFP I suggested DC could have done more in this area, but was told we have recently built a whole new block there. Is this true? Hadn’t heard of it myself.

We did get a new block. A kind of pre-fab thing with gymnasium, player recovery facilities (gets used loads). About a million quids worth if I remember rightly.

It’s a flipping dump, shitty converted shipping containers FFS what’s that all about, that’s certainly going to attract a top manager and players isn’t it 

 

This is one area where the SWFC owner could have made a difference, if Middlewood wasn’t big enough (which it probably isn’t) he should have bought land and built a new academy and training ground, then the fan base could have witnessed that there was some sort of plan to grow the club and develop it with youngsters and future talents. A place that would attract future top players and managers. Instead we’ve spunked millions on a load of prem has beens that have been no benefit to SWFC whatsoever and that we’re getting FFP punished for.

 

There’s just been far too many calamitous decisions since he walked through the door and the lack of investment on infrastructure is just one of them.

When it was "done up", the shipping containers eyesore went, well the one on top of the other did.
