Yeh, stop spending money on new players DC, none of us fans want that, we want some nice new showers at the training ground.

 

Think the point is there are obviously restrictions on what he can spend on recruitment, but not on infrastructure: improvements to the training ground will theoretically improve the first team too in the long run.

 

Likewise ground improvements should be free from FFP and could improve revenue streams.

Think there could be a plan for middle wood road which is why not a lot is being spent other than in stuff that can be moved?

Wasn't there a rumour about extending the Training Ground right back to Claywheels Lane - or have I dreamt that?

I think there was an offer to buy the Niagara facilities however for whatever reason that fell through. It was going to involve building a bridge across the Don to move between the two.

That was your point in your OP and i don't disagree with you.

However my post was in response to one which moaned about money being wasted on players when it should have been spent on training facilities. Looking at his posts in this thread i have a suspicion that DC has run over his dog and shat in his garden.

Not according to this.

 

Melwood is the Liverpool FC training ground, located in the West Derby area of Liverpool. It is separate from the Liverpool Academy facility, which is based in Kirkby.

Liverpool are in the process of building their  new first team training ground at the back of their current academy

No. They're professional athletes, not Saddam Hussein.

Correct, they are consolidating them due to the benefits of them training in the same location.

There is still a lot of land on Penistone road up for grabs. If I remember right one large plot was earmarked foe the Wednesday in the  community organization and plans were passed. I believe that the funding wasn't forthcoming so it came to nothing but the plot of land still appears empty.

I think the issue would have been obtaining planning permission for the bridge which would have entailed cutting down trees.
