'THE FAT CONTROLLER'S LEGACY!
(An arrow 💘 through wor hearts!)
News that the planned development behind The Gallowgate End in Strawberry Place iz to gan aheed, woz annoonced last week! Wor beloved owner 'The Fat Controller' sold the land, bought from NUFC in 2009---and haz sold it for a 'fat' profit!
Az yoo can see by the above photo the 10 story tower blocks planned will stop any forthaa expansion of the groond at this end! And there iz 'ne way' that we can build the huge Milburn Stand or Leazes End any higher, or else the roofs will touch the sky!
The smaall East Stand (in comparison), cannit be built any higher eethaa, az there iz the Leazes Terrace listed buildin' behind the stand!
In othaa words SJP iz now 'landlocked' and it looks increasingly likely that the 52,354 capacity will not be able to be increased!
Iz this a 'partin shot' at the fans for wor dislike of him SO much?---and even if he sells up, the new owners will not be able to expand the stadium UNLESS we build a tier on top of The Gallowgate End, which would be very expensive indeed!
