hi blueroyals. I like your posting style, have you ever thought about posting in some of the boards other forums, such as Anything Else?

You seem like just the kind of funny, intelligent and probably good looking operator who would go down a storm on there

Are dare I say it, slightly prejudice.

Yeh, he'd fit right in.

Progress update :
Academy will move in probably November.
Ladies team will move in then also or possibly shortly afterwards
1st team will follow, but not until 2019

Also - this bit:
Gourlay: For 2020 we've already been contacted for the use of it by UEFA so fingers crossed [that can happen]


Why would Uefa be looking at it? Hosting underage tournaments?

Location for one of the training camps for Euro 2020 possibly? Wembley is hosting the semis and finals, with all the group games being held across Europe, so I'd guess they'll need 4 training camp venues relatively close to London.

Yes, it’s supposed to be “state of the art” meaning it will be one of the best in the country so there’s no doubt Gourlay is referring to the Euros

Is that a hint by Gourlay at the end of that interview that we might be announcing stadium sponsorship in a couple of weeks? They’ve some announcements to make regarding bringing income to the club. Can’t imagine why they’d announce much else unless we’re moving away from Puma and/or that hiddious shirt sponsor.

Doubtful, because Gourlay has literally no idea what he's doing.

Yeah, I mean it isn't like he has been employed by 2 of the biggest clubs in Europe or anything?

Being employed at two football clubs where you have a huge abundance of wealth does not automatically make you successful at a club where resources are limited. From what I’ve heard, he is absolutely clueless.
