So, to repeat, we have heard from at least two posters that did not vote 'yes', can anyone that did vote 'yes' kindly explain their reasons please, you never know they maybe reasons some of us had not thought of yet.
I voted 'yes' mushy.
I believe, that in order for WHUFC to progress, we need to move to a stadium that will meet the demand of our future fans as well as the current ones.
I do not believe that we can do that at the Boleyn for various reasons.
I have spoken to fans both young and old and the majority of our younger fans, including the age group 10-20, are positive towards the move. The elders are more hesitant and wary but willing and patient to see what the plans will reveal.
I believe that KB, DG and DS do know and understand what we, as the clubs supporters, want from a stadium and I think they will do their utmost to meet our needs.
I have been to the Olympic Stadium and am currently working on a couple of projects there, within the park. I do have hesitations, as do others, naturally, and have spoken to both people within the Olympic Park as well as people connected with WHUFC to clarify certain issues.
Our club cannot progress at the Boleyn, both financially or physically. The facilities are poor, the transport is appalling and the cost to upgrade the stadium to a more modern, suitable venue for a (fingers crossed) Premiership Football Club would have to be taken from our owners pocket. Why should they do that when accessibility issues will never be resolved?
Feedback from people I have spoken too, both ST Holders and others, has been 60/40. The majority of those people do not post on KUMB or any other internet forum.
My feelings, after the SAB meeting, were more positive but then I went into the meeting with a positive attitude in the first place.
Of course I have emotional feelings about leaving the Boleyn, should we be successful in our bid and the relevant needs and desires are most definitely met, as it is a place that my Grandfather first took me to watch WHUFC when I was 4. He was a ST holder for many a year but a man that liked to see progression rather than be held by emotional ties.
Maybe a few others should let go a little, think of our future as a modern club rather than the persistent negative vibes and attitudes from many on here.
Do you really, really think that we would move to a stadium that would not be beneficial for the club with our owners putting their own money into it?
Do you really think they haven't thought about the sight lines, atmosphere etc etc?
All those that are totally against the move, tell me the positives about staying at the Boleyn without expressing any emotions involved in the process...
