..gate. Almost home I'm informed.
usually gives rotten racing tips and is frequently inebriated.
from Insom's kitchen - the HU five to relocate for a luxury matchday experience?
than the Goldhawk
it's the guys you drink with.
to be specific?
..on the corner, where the road will lead to the new stadium. It will have several USPs that I'm not going to reveal to you now, because it's such a good idea. But can I just say in advance, all are welcome, the finest real ale will be on tap, sovereignty and independence will be respected and bitcoins taken in payment!
Sorry to piss on your bonfire but its not going to happen.
..on the bonfire of love, have you considered that they are only proposals? Things can change. It's not impossible to consider that a new stadium may be considered in the plans. And if not at the Dairy Crest site, then maybe the BBC site. Let's wait and see...
No, I have not. We wont be playing there, plus the BBC site is a listed building so thats a no no as well.
I can see us moving out of W12 myself.
..the digging down option then. That or the Linford Christie stadium in Wormwood Scrubs... perfect site for it.
by chance today I was in the office of a bloke who is ITK. Actually really in the know as he is a major player investing money for spec housing developments in London. He's a Bostonian, has global interests, but being an anglophile pays close attention to just about everything concerning construction plans / opportunity in your part of the world.
So we chat about 'soccer' and I eventually mention the Unigate site, he blanks, tells me he's unaware of anything happening in that part of town, though he is very cognisant of 'realtors' searching for football stadium sites in west London.
He tells me there are five big projects in the offing, all looking for money, the consortiums he's involved with now have $300 million invested in all or some of the following ,Wapping Village, Greenwich, Nine Elms, Earls Court and Battersea...nothing on the radar re W12.
Building a stadium in London is more of a problem than I'd realised. I'm informed that there is a chronic housing shortage and anything put forward has tremendous pressure placed upon it to be a mixed development, though having a site (LR), to offer for this purpose is a definite bonus.
OK, so I warbled on a bit with stuff that many probably already know, point is there are no set plans for the dairy, in fact they are just as likely to sell as to build.
Of the Linford Christie Stadium makes the most sense.
no Latimer Road luxury box!
You could ask for a cell with a view in the Scrubs, when they finally catch up with you.
Picture should have been in the first post...though I'm presuming this is visible?
That'll do, pig. That'll do.
love the new name
I still reckon when they flatten the White City site, it'll be somewhere in there. The ground has been included in that particular regeneration zone.
The only surprise to me is that they're starting on the Gibbs Green and West Ken estates first, which are considerably newer. But then perhaps the super-council thinks it needs to gentrify that area first, what with the neighbours and all. After all, White City and the Bush are in the north of the borough.
After Monday and Tuesday, even the calendar says W T F are the FA doing?
I wish I could find the documentary about St Anns in Nottingham, which was a horrible slum of an estate which they finaly started knocking down and replacing in 1969 and carried on through the 70's and 80's.
Having said that, I lived there for nearly two years and despite not being able to get a taxi home at night (taxi drivers wouldn't go there) I didn't have any bother and it was very, very cheap.
"When it fell under the rule of a Saxon chieftain named Snot it became known as "Snotingaham"; the homestead of Snot's people (Inga = the people of; Ham = homestead)"
Treat with extreme caution......
and I found the film I was on about http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=8063122702317512133
..thanks for posting. Amazing to think that that was only 44 years ago, and to see not only how much progress has been made, but also what a dangerous point we are at now, with the vindictive, vile, regressionist Tories threatening to reverse the last 60 years of social reform to serve their paymasters.
and don't know that every politician has their price?
..just some of my old skool firebrand leftism coming out there..
Some may or may not happen of course, but some have been approved, including at least part of the Imperial College deveelopment on BBC White City site.
so publicly funded.
