its not the responsibility of eddie davies to reverse cliffys mess

 

You can see who is driving new development with the council's response. Ordinarily, anything like this would have Cliff Morris singing and dancing about great investment for Bolton. It looks like the council has been intentionally cut out of this.

 

As for Bolton town centre, as much of it is owned privately, would be hard for anyone to do anything radical with it without buying up property. Bolton had its chance when finance was being thrown around a few years back (see Bury). Destined for pound shops and student flats now.

The real great thing about our club is that we have the whole set up. Fair play to Gartside and Davies for putting us streets ahead of the likes of Everton, Fulham and qpr.

 

It would be unimaginable to try and set up what we have now with the way things are.

I honestly can't tell when you being serious and when you aren't any more.

Ha! Ive never seen that one. I saw an artists impression of what our new ground was going to look like in the Evening News around the time we decided to move out of Burnden, and it was printed again in a 100 Years At Burnden Park book I once had. It looked something similar to the San Siro actually! There were what looked like four giant spiral staircase tower type efforts at each croner. Looked decent!

:D

 

You'd have to wrap up warm if you're in that end on the right-hand side.

 

I remember the one Marc's on about. The four corners looked like big tubes with floodlights at the top iirc. I'm happy with the way it turned out ... just a shame it's so 'breezeblocky' in the concourses.

I doubt the club would just punt this by an Architect on spec. without assurances of grants, agreements with anchor tennants etc?

 

Let the Lostock locals campaign that they preferred living next to a sprawling munitions factory than football pitches.

 

Long term vision aside, the problem with having one foot in the past and one foot in the future is that you piss on the present.
