    The bare minimum will be more income for the future once it pays itself off.

    Once in a bluemoon a quality lad will come through and float around the 1st team.

    All he has to do is give a couple of good games or hold his own depending on position over a season - then sold on for a few million to promoted or clubs that always seem to flirt with relegation.

    Then with pot luck at some point a real talent will emerge, not every year but having the pull to attract the best young n's can only help our % chance of landing next star.

    Having this academy standing tall above the rest helps attract the talent and eliminate most competition. Reputation wise we now compete on that front also.

    Took this from the South West spiral at HT...

    It was a great walk to the stadium tonight. My usual route which now passes the College, CFA and Stadium, now includes a look through the windows of the Minihad, which looks fabulous close up and finished. Stunning.

    And then a walk over the bridge... Had a big smile on my face all the way over, taking in the stadium expansion with the CFA behind, a World-Class facility, in what was an urban wasteland.

    Not in my wildest dreams did I envision what is now happening to our club.

    And we're not finished...

    Wow.

    Brilliant photo from side on 1.618034, shows exactly how massive the extension of the South End actually is, and being able to see some of the crowd through the old part of the stand just adds to the effect............well done

    Picture shows how big the concourse area is going to be giving the club loads of opportunities

    Is that the first supports for the roof steel that I can see on the upper tier terrace?

    Thanks. The louvres were open at that end last night so I could see the full sweep of the new South Stand.
