I'd be intrigued to see the council's plans for the junction.

 

As someone who doesn't live a million miles away from the new training ground, there have been dozens of accidents and a lot of fatalities in that junction.

 

Crossing right onto the A46 heading towards Nottingham is treacherous and literally impassable during peak times. Infact even during the middle of the day you have to wait a fair time. There were talks of a fly-over at some point being made however this would have been too costly. Theres too many people who take risks at the junction and it definitely needs to be sorted.

 

I drove past the training ground the other day, and honestly from what you can see it looks incredible. The main building looks fantastic and being honest the speed in which the site has been transformed is pretty impressive, even if people are frustrated about when it opens. It wasn't long ago that the members of the golf club were told to practically do-one, as their memberships were cancelled. So to see it go up is pretty impressive. Theres a fair bit of building happening in that area of the county too, with more housing going up in the Seagrave side of Sileby. 

basically they are lengthening the central queuing point.

 

As for the fly over. That was meant to go in before the golf course was allowed to open years ago. They then deemed it too expensive.

 

In fairness to the club. This is highways englands decision and has no reflection on the club.

Originally I was told they had been specifically done for 2 current players. Was lead to believe it was kasper to reduce his travelling and fuchs presumably for similar reasons that he could be based there when not in the states. But never managed to get it confirmed. But they have definitely now been removed 

Could be they are happy with just standard which isn’t too dissimilar anyway to the others? Can’t imagine they’d want to live on the training site?

Most of them are abroad in Ibiza. Do footballers have to quarantine on arrival? Seems government officials don’t have to :ph34r:

From what I’ve seen, Vardy is in Ibiza and Perez is in Tenerife, no way are these going to quarantine for 14 days on arrival back in the UK.

Moving in part way through a season isn't going to be ideal, I'd have thought. Especially during the winter with all the disruption that goes with it. Looks like it will be a staged move and operating out of both places simultaneously. 

 

Two training grounds at once. What a time to be alive.

No way aren’t they ......players will be in the sights of the media, especially those like vardy .....I believe that there was some talk of quarantine being reduced to ten days if you had a couple of neg tests ......

Reduced travelling for the little darlings give me strength please.

Kasper needs a session at specsavers (or barnard castle)based on recent performance and Fuchs has more air miles than me mum has green shield stamps

Probably a case of moving squads over at a time to get the place running. Sad that it isnt ready for pre season, but it's hardly been a normal year.

Can see them getting around it by quarantining them as a squad for pre-season

Senior government figures have agreed sports stars will not be subject to the full rule.

They will instead be expected to undergo a rigorous testing regime and isolate themselves immediately if they test positive for the virus so as not to become spreaders.

 

Would be possible to finish the UCL and UEL without them being able to travel.

Possibility of moving the young academy age groups first? Are we keeping the bell or drive one for anything? The Thais academy maybe?

Think they are keeping it . There was a job going for a Head grounds keeper based there the other week and it was a permanent position .

Apparently the 2 players suites have now been replaced with hospitality facilities.

 

So Top is the only one with a suite now. All players will now get the same level of room. Still love to know who the posher suites were meant to be for and why they have now been replaced with essentially posh meeting rooms.

Perhaps high ranking guests of Top? He rubs shoulders with dignatories, Vichai was mates with our Royal Family.

To be fair this was the room any player was sent to if they got the arse.

Anyone know why the latest drone video has been wiped on here, the merc and online?

Probably the club not having given permission for it and having it removed

My mate is fitting all the signs there next week. Told him it needs to be finished by end of the week.

Can you ask him if there's any sign of it being finished?

Personally I don`t think the main building will be ready before christmas, I go in pretty much every day and it`s miles away, the product I deliver would give the impression that it`s getting close but I`ve had a damn good snoop round and it certainly is not, the green stuff outside is looking good and I followed a lorry in with all the goalposts a while ago, the dug outs are in place.

are we stockpiling pasta ?

 

on a serious note, can’t believe that the working restrictions due to the pandemic have caused such a delay but it’s a real shame the boys can’t be there in the summer and early autumn whilst the weather is good ..... moving in when it’s dull, miserable and cold won’t seem the same !   McLaren must be concerned about their losses due to late delivery and I suspect a legal wrangle over the pandemic on that ....
