If youdever been in a leadership position youd know the importance of communications, internal & external. Youd know what the role of comms is, what good comms look like and what poor comms look like.
Im not sure that @Facecloth& @baldeaglehave ever lead more than a scout troop.Plainly neither had any idea about the (small & relatively insignificant) point I was trying to make, confusing it with the impatience of a child at Xmas.
Still, lesson learned. Ill try only to engage with the grown ups in future. Not a dig at you @Speedwell

We are all entitled to an opinion Steve.Im self employed and have to communicate with customers all the time.But weve all been aware of whats been going on with pictures,videos etc.Im now excited that theyre finally moving in to the facility.Nothing more needed to know really IMO.No offence taken btw.

I wasnt asking for daily progress reports.

What are we doing? Why are we doing it? When will it be ready? What does it mean for the players? What does it mean for the fans & other stakeholders?

Just comms. Its the job. And were lousy at it. So far.

I think youll find I did exactly that

So found the above post from a few weeks back. So at the start they released the plans, I doing so they explained why we wanted and needed a new training ground and taking the club to the next level. That's the first two dealt with. We had a finish date told to us at the start. Now I'm not sure if you've noticed the global pandemic thats been cracking off this year, but lots of things have been up in the air, and that original finish date passed, and I'm pretty sure after that, in the current climate it was never set in stone. I've seen a few player talk about how they are looking forward to starting there,as has the manager. Also in the original plans it was mentioned what facilities the players would have.

Now did you want them to constantly repeat all this on a regular basis? Or as someone who claims to be such a communication expert, do you think you might want to pay more attention in future?

It could have been a quick and understandable few million reclaimed back by selling Belvoir Drive.

Our owners?... just provideLCFC Women with what must be the best sole women's training facility in the country (in the world?!)?!

:appl:

This is a really good point. Surely it must be up there?!

They have been given Belvoir Drive.

This is an interesting one, because you could understand if they felt like second-class citizens at not being able to use the same Training Academy as the men's team. Apparently Alex Morgan the women's USA striker insisted that the Spurs women's team be able to use the men's facilities during her recent loan to Spurs ladies.

But at the same time, having your very own "home" that is all yours is also motivating. Put it this way, do you want to live in a really nice house with your mum and dad, or would you prefer to live in a slightly pokier and more run down place nearer the city that is your own pad? I could definitely see the second being of more interest! I am sure they were consulted and went for this option, and they still get to go to Seagrave to use those facilities if they want to / need to. Plus Belvoir Drive was literally used by a title winning Premiership team! Can't be all that shabby eh?

What Great timing & a Great Christmas present...For All Leicester City fans...

Its been a miserable Time this past Year .but just for this moment The Leicester Sporting public, can indulge themselves,

By looking back on their own ..Short or long memories of where they literally seen & believed, or just Dreamed how far

their Club will Match up to their own individual fantasies,hopes,compromises and expectations...

If you like me your support & memories go back to the late fifties,or if your a young lad/lass who stepped & Stamped onthose Terrace

For the 1St Time in the 60s..70s..80s,..90s even 2000-2010, then all those past Trials & tribulations & far outspeculations have seen our

Un-dwindling, faithfull support ,be blessed in Guiding us to this defining era of the last ten years...I

This Training-center ,confirmed & qualified that These "Nobodies & Vagabonds". are ready and willing to Take the Next 10 years, into a Next

step era...we couldnt and darent believe was possible..way back in those "small club" days..

Surely the buildings at BelvoirDrive can be renovated too. Now you dont require the whole club on site. You could easily build a new club building for on it and demolish the old one.

Not one to make sensationalist statements but thisis going to be an absolute game changer for us. Absolutely incredible testament to the ambition of our wonderful owners.

... or a moment of hubris.

You couldnt be any more wrong about never leading anything more than a scout group .
