This is a labour council right?? Horrendous decision. Greedy c***s the lot of them, I don’t care what political hue they are, they’re overwhelmingly self-serving w*****s.

 This council are so shortsighted.  If the club is eventually sold to an ambitious owner the council have overlooked the likelihood that the new owner will simply build a new bigger stadium outside the city centre.  There must be numerous city centre businesses that will go under without the fans revenue.  I imagine there will be more than 1000 job losses in that event.

This comes down to brown envelopes and nothing else. This should be another nail in the Ashley coffin too but it'll be business as usual next game.

[What is a club in any case? Not the buildings or the directors or the people who are paid to represent it. It’s not the television contracts, get-out clauses, marketing departments or executive boxes. It’s the noise, the passion, the feeling of belonging, the pride in your city. It’s a small boy clambering up stadium steps for the very first time, gripping his father’s hand, gawping at that hallowed stretch of turf beneath him and, without being able to do a thing about it, falling in love.

Definitive proof, for the ignorant, that the owner not only doesn't act in the best interests of the club but directly against them. No single move could have been more damaging to the clubs future.
What other club would sell off land by the stadium to have their attendance/expansion limited forever, when everybody knows the ground they currently have is already too small?
Can the protests groups hammer this. Maybe get a comment from the football authorities about how this isn't counter productive and clear spite/greed/pillaging of a club?

absolutely disgusted
clubs as good as dead now - potential was all we had, our only draw for would be buyers, frankly the only hope we had, without that you have to assume were stuck with Ashley, which is simply not acceptable and impossible to invest in. It was anyway but now knowing, KNOWING, the club can't grow even if it wanted to- which we all know it doesn't, what is the fkn point?

It's got f*** all to do with brown envelopes and everything to do with A: the f***er selling the land in the first place and B: a botched planning system which gives the private sector too much capacity to deliver poxy schemes.

Did the City Council have a say in that land getting sold?

According to ITV Tyne tees, the reporter was quoting the council and said "the development won't affect any future expansion of the stadium".

Council must be buzzing over the thought of having to change the road layout round there. Wonder if they'll go for traffic lights that make things worse, or a new roundabout layout that also makes things worse, or possibly turning Barrack Road into an entire cycle lane.

Raging.  But like so many things these days it's sort of a shrug because I expect no less.

It’s not like we’re getting rid of Ashley or ever going to extend anyway?
