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.

Tbf current Covid rules stop them using the changing rooms etc. I suppose it’s the treatment rooms and the gym which are the vital piece of the puzzle

To be honest does it really matter? It's not like they are going to have to train down the local leisure centre is it?! 

 

It was obviously going to be tough to complete but if it means moving in after Christmas I'm sure they will cope with it.

The changing rooms are in use at Belvoir Drive, aren't they? Same rules. 

 

It will have been almost two years since they started this development.

Nope, players turn up in their training kit and they are expected to either leave in what they were wearing or get changed into a spare set outdoors. 
 

Same as we being told for grass roots stuff

So why can't they do that at the new place?

The place is going to be absolutely stunning, no expense spared and no corners cut, they are using the best of everything, I can`t begin to try to put the place into words, it`s bluddy huge as well, 3 floors, full size swimming pool, spar pool etc, and Top`s suite is just breathtaking, the wallpaper alone was 20k :-)  the players all have their own rooms and there`s a shit load more for guests and visitors, I`m like a kid in a sweetshop every time I go on site !

Lol! Chill out & stop stressing about it all mate! 

I'm totally chilled. Makes no difference to me other than the effect it could have on the team if they move mid-season. We know that it doesn't take much to upset the apple cart.

It's the people that make a cohesive and productive training set up. I'm sure they'll have a great time moving in whenever it happens.

 

I worked for company that employed over a 1000 people in a building that was built in the late 1800s we moved to a brand new building lock stock and barrel and I think I can say most people enjoyed it the camaraderie was A1 and production did not waver at all.

The effect could well be a positive one, though. It might be the case that the team gets a boost from the move, despite it being mid-season.

Does any one know what is going to happen to Belvoir Drive post move?  Do we own the land? If so, can it be sold for development (Housing?).  Just interested if it has been effectively used as security for part purchase of the new facility.

That is one of the couple of ideas for that area of land.

Suppose that will help Maddison clear the first man

If this training ground is as good as suggested, it'll be a huge pull for the talented young players we're looking at. State of the art facilities, accommodation on site if needed and a continuously growing project.

Thinking of new signings and tops travel preferences then is it doable for the helicopter to be used still or have they done away with it?

I think if it was there would have been a helicopter landing pad included in the plans. I've not seen or heard that it was.
