I think we need to not forget we are spending £3.5m on the robin park redevelopment

It's a challenge managing a stadium, but it can work imo. I'd say some of the people who wouldn't want to see us having our own ground are slightly defeatist and short sighted.



Have you got permission to hold gigs at your place? I cant see that it would be a noise nuisance issue for residents. Pretty sure we cant at warrington,

Because both those artists command crowds of at least 50k plus, but a lower level of artiste then yes it could happen.

Are you saying the LSV holds more than 50,000? Bolton's holds 28,000 and is twice the size of Leigh's.

I’m not saying that at all,if you read what I said both Williams and Springsteen command crowds of 50k which clearly only the etihad and old Trafford can accommodate,but an artist such as those that have played there such Elton John,Lionel Ritchie etc can fill the LSV,Bolton and I presume the Dw if they started to do gigs,could manage to fill them.

The owners of WAFC have been looking at holding concerts at the ground for the last 9/12 months (Even before the final sign off of their acquisition had been signed off).
But apart from keeping the Landlords happy which in turn may keep them off our backs I don't see how having them helps us?

I've just looked further back, you quoted the wrong poster.

I agree about Williams and Springsteen.
