Noticed they have spent a bit off money down lane new windows every were and new wooden base round bar .Cant see cas spending money on these if they thought the new ground was going to happen any time soon i am afraid its starting to look a none starter now going too need a plan b.
This was more of a contra-sponsorship deal.
ie. Sheridans refurbished the Tiger bar counter.

By page 150 my money is on, at last, people seeing the obvious.

We will never get a new ground.

I would think there are more Cas fans that think a new ground won’t happen than ones that do based purely on the several false dawns, expired dates for “Work to start” and because of the economic climate.

Knowing we don’t have a Plan B is a concern because if we ever go back to franchising Cas will be way down the list purely on ground alone.

How many times/years can we keep hearing/seeing the tired old “We don’t need to spend on WR because we are moving” bulls hit.

In the changing shopping climate i don't see it happening now. Plan B required urgently.

Anybody that still thinks the new ground will happen is quite frankly deluding themselves. Beat case scenario is a Wakey style council loan and a few grants to stick some lipstick on the pig that is Wheldon Road.

We keep hearing about plan B, well hears thought, bearing in mind what Fev achieved with the old Scarborough stands, how about having a look at whats happening at Bury FC. As far as I am aware they are in the hands of the receiver and are millions in debt so would be open to sensible offers for any of there equipment....ie stands. Is it beyond this club to do what Fev did? Gigg lane is a 12000 all seater and looks as good as anything in the league. Just a thought. Oh and happy new year.

As I said earlier, it won’t happen and I’m really pleased several other prominent posters agree.

We have loads of land at WR. if only I was to win the euro millions.

How much do you reckon it would cost to build a new ground on the existing shell, and a gym / indoor space on the training pitch.

The stands that Fev took were relatively modern structures that were basically steal, concrete and cladding...... I can assure you that the stands at Bury aren’t modern and it’s not simply a case of making them an offer and taking them down. Basically it’s never going to happen if would probably be cheaper to design and build a new stand .

As a Trinity fan, I know how you all feel about stadium development. I would suggest you take a look at the Bradford Bulls forum. Ralf Rimmer has made a statement tonight, shows how much rugby league funds from all clubs and fans is being provided to keep Odsal stadium alive. These people at RFL headquarters have lot to answer for with their clandestine operations.
This is not a criticism of Bradford fans, but the way those in the RFL past and present, have manipulated all this.

I said a number of times before Christmas there should have been a independent inquiry into the RL at the time Woods said he was taking over there

On cas when (if) its announced the new ground won't be built we will then see how much fight and determination the owner and people who run the club for him have for there task ahead ...there going to need a lot because were well behind where we should be due to the fact for most of the last ten years or so the views been why do major improvement to the ground when a new one is about to be built
The measure of who we are is what we do with what we have

As a fairly recent addition to this forum, welcome by the way, you certainly know a lot about sirocco7 and their thoughts on the proposed new stadium. Kudos to you for reading all 148 pages of this thread. Do you think the new ground will happen and, if not, what are the main blockers to this?
