What happened to their Jordanian International Mustapha Bin Ali Dia?

 

All based on a mis-hearing.

They were actually going to sign Jordan.  A big presence up front and she makes herself available.

Corrected that for you.

Not doubting what you've written Bert but if it's true that's most odd (and I've delivered a few major building projects in my time.)

For those who don't understand Bert's subtleties. In normal practice were the land on which the training facilities to stand be owned by Wael (not the club,) the club would enter into a pre-lease or service supply contract with the owner who, through their contractor, would have constructed the facility at their risk in accordance with Rovers requirements (Design & Build.) No funding for Cat A & B works is payable until the facility has practical completion and lease commenced, though CAT C & D may be paid prior to use (then such assets may be removed and used/sold elsewhere ) No freeholder in their right mind would allow somebody to construct on their land without guarantees of completion or reinstatement and the price of such indemnities render such proposals unaffordable to the end user. 

The club wouldn't have an issue in explaining why they needed to fund the 'lease or service cost' of Training and Development facilities as Cat A&B capital costs would be recouped by the owner over the length of the contract (unless the lessee has time restricted cash to flash and that needs some me explaining.) Nobody in their right mind would finance improvements in an asset over which they have no control.

One point I'd take issue with is the notion that monies currently expended are 'enhancing the value of the land'. One assumes Use Case Consent does not allow for construction other than that for the purpose stated and building consent approved (one assumes minor sporting premises.) In such case the quality of the grass matters little to a developer other than he'd have turf to sell prior to breaking it. Land value is intrinsically linked to Use Case Consent.

From the pictures I've seen whilst the pitches look great there's otherwise a shipping container (for the groundsman's equipment?) and a canvas marquee (in which the players are expected to change?) Not exactly tangible assets in my book....

 

It’s in the green belt and has permission for use as a sports training facility. It has a gym and will have changing rooms/offices within the next 6 months or so. Not exactly likely to cause a huge increase in value unless you know someone desperate to buy a football training ground.

Thanks, that was my reasoning.

A common misunderstanding.

Remember what happened to Harry Rednapp after his agent called him and said "do you fancy doing Jordan?"

One belter on slagchat reckons they`d have beaten Burton if they`d had a full stadium roaring them on.

Full? Roaring? When`s that ever happened? 1958?

Let's look at Ben Garners record between January-March and see if that claim sounds valid...?! 

 

Just checked their stats and their 50% possession and 2 shots on target really make it sound like all they needed was a fictitious full house, roaring them on rather than booing and calling for Garners head.

Still without a win in 2020 that’s not come about due to red card or penalty

True, but think that was their first point of the season without either a penalty or an opposition sending off.

They’re coming for us...

Something seriously wrong with their mentality if they need a 'roaring' crowd to see them home against the might of Burton Albion.
