Has the wind dropped Martin? We've not had the best results in the last few breezy contests...

we cycled into Suffolk and back today and it was pretty windy all day. It is less windy now than it was this morning though, a light breeze at the moment.

Just a win and a goal would be nice.

We played ugly at Yeovil and Cheltenham and only got 2 draws, we played well against Plymouth and got nothing.

The playoffs are still easily in reach!

Worst overall ground I've ever visited. Best part was how quickly you could get out.

It's not a football stadium; it's a multi purpose facility where football happens to be played and it was rank.

Its really souless at the moment apparently the long term aim is to build some shops or entertainment buildings on part of the car park. Last time i went it was a whole lot of nothing then you could cross the motorway via a bridge to get to a mcdonalds.

I'd like to say, that in hind sight a small sided stand like the one the away fans were in last night coule easily be installed along the Bishop Street side of field mill. It was no frills and probably inexpensive.

Worst away day in the league for me. Soulless ground in the middle of nowhere.

What would you call inexpensive?

What would you sooner have next season?
A brand new stand which'd house 2-300 at the most because nobody comes because the team aren't scoring goals and winning or....


A couple of strikers that rip Lge 2 to pieces?

Still none the wiser of what you mean by 'inexpensive' ?

The stadium itself cost £14.23m to build on land already owned by the Council. No demolition costs.
Even if each stand only cost 1m and the rest spent on infrastructure etc I'd imagine JR'd get no change from 1m for the whole shebang. Is £1m what you mean by inexpensive?
