Stadium Investigation Two
(03.03.06) Milan laughs of the suggestion of the stadium not happening.
After much frustration regarding apparent "documentations" Portsmouth chairmen Milan Mandaric told fans that we where a step closer.
Milan said, "We are making good progress and the further documentation is further evidence of this."
Apparently the majority of clearances from the council have now been received but there are still, "one or two outstanding issues."
Originally all demolition work should have been completed by now. Two of the stands should have been underway and Pompey village should have been developing nicely.
The pitch should have been turning round during the summer. This will now happen in 2007. The reason given for this is because if we where to do it this summer we would be playing much of the season in a 13,000 seater stadium. I don`t understand why we won`t be playing in a 13,000 seater stadium next year?
It looks likely that we will have a finished stadium at the beginning of 2008. I`m unconvinced though because what`s going to happen at the beginning of the 2007/08 season?
I think that the likely thing is we will have a new stadium for the 2008/2009 season. Although, I don`t expect Pompey Village to be ready until 2010, at the earliest.
I got in touch with someone at the council who told me, "There where a couple of things outstanding but I think they have been agreed in principle." Although this person isn`t working on the Pompey village and stadium development they did go on to let something slip. I may be reading too much into it but I will leave it for the final article. It is the mother of all rumours!!
In Stadium Investigation Three- We speak to Peter Storrie, putting some key questions to him. He will also be giving Vital Pompey an exclusive update. We also got in touch with the people in charge of designing and building the Stadium. Just to check that Portsmouth`s story matches there`s.
