    Imagine what the staff are thinking, jumping from Donald’s to KLD budget in the space of a few weeks

    Very impressive stuff. Will need a canny lockup to store those bad boys in.

    Are we thinking this new pitch and lighting will be installed this season? It that a possibility given the schedule of games?

    Not possible with our schedule. It'll have to be at the end of the season.

    At Tottenham apparently there is some automatic hydraulic system that stores them under the North Stand and just wheels them out over the pitch
    Would take a bit of work to retro fit them at the SOL

    I think that is because they have a retractable pitch, ours won't be

    I was wondering what the fans are thinking about when crowds are allowed back is it better to have a 1/4 full stadium or to wait until everybody can go back so he sees what it’s like with a full house?

    lf he wants to get ideas from Tottenham's stadium, now all we need is him to put a micro brewery into the Stadium of Light.

    Would be great PR for the club and for the city / local economy if he bought one of the buildings around the stadium and produced a micro brewery which could sell beer in the ground and also local pubs etc / with a shop / fan park.

    Would bring an entire new meaning to #cans

    Apparently he’s already hooked, imagine what he’ll be like when the fans are back in full voice

    Finally we have an owner who has vision and has a fantastic attention to detail.

    Looking forward to the rest of the season and summer to see the whirlwind continue.

    yeh you can tell he's hooked by the immediate multi-camera stream thing. He clearly been trying to watch us all season on one camera from France and hated it.

    Spurs pitch is brilliant. Came across this the other day on YouTube.

    The new pitch system makes me wonder if they have an eye on internationals, gigs, etc.

    We now have a good stadium with a hotel next door ...

    ... once the monorail goes in there'll be no stopping us <party>
