St James's Park redevelopment begins

I seem to recall Porcus Maximus spending good money on a piece of the old Home Park pitch when it was torn up to be replaced by a super-duper new one some years back - did you actually get around to paying for the blessed thing? I believe he proudly displayed this little bit of heaven on his desk at work for all to see.

I just wonder if he could be persuaded to add to his footballing memorabilia by purchasing a brick or two from the 'way end' toilet block. Wink

Talking of Bricks...  ..and I don't mean Nools head. I've never seen 'Piggus Pathological Liarsareus' talk about owning one of the personalised bricks outside of the Devonport end?  He hardly wastes an opportunity to show his unflagging support.  Don't tell me Piggy was late to market on the 'supporting' the club front and doesn't actually own one?

they are better off buliding a new stadium as they really cant do anything of worth with the stadium given its location.

this new development is pretty much it now and its still leaves them with a small capacity that some ***** want for argyle

I've just noticed this post and I must say that I'm in full agreement. However, where would put it? Land, like anywhere else in the country, both far and wide, is quickly snatched up for housing or trading estates. Even Exeter Speedway, who are based in Somerset, have been trying for over a year to come back home with no success. Anyway, I believe there's a hard core of fans who prefer the ground on their doorstep rather than having to hop on a bus. A lazy and blinkered outlook because numbers through the turnstiles ultimately go hand in glove with expansion.

Eh ? Are you mad ?  The clue is in the name ........Exeter City, not M5 monkeys or Thames Valley grecians.
Your logic is a short step to franchising anywhere a money man can make some bucks.
And of course, we've got our own pigs who feel just like you. Why play in green, why play in Plymouth ?

It's pretty academic now that ECFC ain't going anywhere for the foreseeable future. If you take a butchers at pages 34, 35 and 36 on the 'Stadium Works' thread on WOWS you'll see that roughly the same time I posted on ATD, City fans have been discussing the possibility of moving to sites within the city or relatively close by. So it is on other people's minds.

While I'll agree with you that traipsing long distances could be a massive turn-off for some, I feel that hopping over the M5 wouldn't be that bad as I imagine Exeter will eventually spill over that way big time in the near future.

Wouldn't that put you in a different district council? Would someone like Teignbridge be more accimadating than ECC?

Exeter have a better training ground than argo, a brand new Grandstand that is actually being built without being surrounded by shite that will never benefit argo, a clear lack of bumkissy superduper fans, yes argo are above exeter at the moment but under the wannabee property developers and pension pot fillers they wont be for long.

At this moment in time it probably comes under the jurisdiction of Devon County Council, Hugh. Should the city boundaries expand further south it's a fair bet that ECC would eventually gain control, don't you think?

I hear what beesrus and sufferedsince 1886 has to say, and yes, a new stand replacing the rickety OG is welcome - as is the cover you might be needing next season if we don't go up. However, in spite of some trenchant voices saying, "you can't fill SJP as it is", I would like to see some a significant increase in capacity which I don't think the new stand will deliver.

I thought their new stand was a Barnet cast off, might be wrong of course

The stand purchased from Barnet is for the away end.

The stadium is owned by ECC isn't it? Don't think Exeter City council crosses the M5 except for a Topsham.

My apologies for not getting back to you soon, Hugh. As I no longer live in Exeter, my 'info' may be somewhat dated. However, as I understand it, the ECC does indeed own the ground and that funds for the new stand come from a new multi-storey development of accommodation for 300plus students next to the ground.

Was thinking along similar lines. I never thought I'd say this sort of thing, but, I'm quite envious of E*ters pace at getting their ground improved. They're not hanging around are they! No matter how tinpot it is, at least they're getting on with it.

Meanwhile, in backwater, 1970's stuck Muffsville, a single brick is yet to be laid. It's quite embarrassing.
