All objectives achieved as far as I can see. The money didn't exist to fill in the corners or expand the upper Grandstand or take away the pillars or expand the roof over the full frontage of the lower Mayflower or eradicate the Restricted View seats in the Grandstand. That all has to come later once the vastly improved Hospitality area is generating a proper income. I can see no fault on the club's part here. I can't afford an extension to my house and so I haven't got one even though I could take out a loan that I couldn't afford to pay for one and I would have a much nicer house. Same thing really.
Really well worded, totally agree.
