    The completion of the complex is behind schedule; the club naturally aren't impressed and have threatened legal action against the construction company. Initial plans were to move in for preseason, but they're now looking at making the transition from Carrington during the August international break.

    I hope they get it sponsored by Forsyths on Deansgate, so we can have one of those pianos half way across it that plays itself, just like the one on that bridge at the Trafford Centre, or maybe just employ Jean Michel Jarre to play there on match days with a state of the art keyboard

    Can't we just attach the Bluemoon-singing guitar man from the pre-match cheesy ritual to the bridge? Two birds, one stone.

    Maybe you should "step up" and suggest it to the club? ;)

    I'm sure Gorton Electrical would cough up £6m a year... I remember their cheesy "we've cornered the market'" scoreboard ads in the latter days at Maine Road whenever we got a corner - it was a prompt to relax we never ever scored from corners.

    Or a "WALKER & HOMFRAYS BEER IS THE BEST" sign from the very old roof on the Main Stand!

    I'd like to see a revival of those "The End is Nigh" boards that used to be displayed outside the Main And North Stands (but never the Kippax as people who went in there were beyond redemption) plastered across the bridge.

    That prediction will be right eventually, mark my words.

    Don't think that's right Blue Parrot. Stand corrected

    The club wanted the training academy up and running pre-season. The November date was final completion for the whole academy.

    A bit like moving into your house, even though it isn't finished.
