I don't think that really matters much at this point as its going to take a few years before we move in and we still need to go through negotiations, etc. I would have thought it would be more important that we are either in the Prem or knocking on the door before we move in, so one season in League one (not that we are going to be in League one next season) is going to stop the current talks?

Sounds like the issue about the e of land / building works is more like the sticking point at this stage.


IF (we wont,) but if we do go down I guess it will make raising finance harder though.

The public's right to enjoy Wormwood Scrubs is protected in perpertuity - it may not be taken back wholesale by the military or sold unless the area "ceases to be used by the citizens of London"



Just a clarification, the act prevents building on the land BY the military. It is used by the citizens of London now, and could again if it had a bigger stadium. But the MoD couldnt be involved in the building!

If the MoD were involved perhaps we could get them to sow a minefield on the pitch...? :wink
