This is Marie Boulton were talking about. She promoted the notion of a fucking tunnel instead of a bypass. 

All she is doing is designed to send a heap of flak AFCs way, as they will take shit form fans for progressing with Kingsford when there was a "better option" available.  But there isn't. It's just some bint from the council sounding her mouth off. 

Ask the council this? 

*Do we have planning permisson at the site? No

* has a feasibility study been done? No

* are AFC getting the site for free? No

* are the council going to cover the additional costs of running the stadium and training ground at 2 seperate sites? No

* are the council going to cover the costs afc have spent on kingsford so far? No

I wait for Marie Boulton to say here's a site for free, with planning permission, plans, building warrrants all ready to go, you can break ground tomorrow. 

Until that day, I will maintain my stance that she's a shit stirring cunt spouting shite to put the club in an awkward position. 

The club have already had to try and play it down whilst being careful to not be seen to say fuck off to a better site, as they know this is shite, but not everyone else does. 

Then we tell the council to put up or shut up , balls in or court

Agree. And when the council don't come up with anything of substance, hopefully fans  will see this for the posturing it is, and won't hold it against the club.

I won't hold it against the club of it falls through. 

But I would hold it against the club if they didn't at least pursue it.

Hey if you told me that in 5 years time we would have a stadium on that site with the same or better spec as kingsford I'd be more than happy. 

Club should crack on with kingsford in the mean time. Obviously this will be delayed due to covid, so there should be plenty of time for the council to sort everything out for the new site before we break ground at Kingsford. 

 

Edit  I would Caveat that the club shouldn't be paying anything to investigate the new site. Any feasibility studies etc should be sorted out and funded by the council.

Aye. I understand why you're pissed off with the council. It infuriated me that the city didn't try to help the club find a proper site in a central location as well. 

Covid has made people reevaluate a lot things (for the moment anyway) so I hope they are being genuine about all of this.

Marie Boulton doesn't have a history of being genuine. A fucking tunnel under the city ffs. A fucking tunnel!!! Not just a wee tunnel. A fucking big one. No real thought or investigation, just spouting her fucking mouth off.

Your right though, I am pissed off, but not because of the council not helping in the past, but because it's clear to me that this suggestion has no substance to it and its sucking people in already.

I've read in the past there was an anti-Milne agenda going on within ACC. Time will tell if there's any truth to that and if there's any improvement in co-operation now he's sidelined.

You're right - it's all wind and pish until it's in black and white.

It’s delusional, pie in the sky garbage. 
Sadly.

The club is still committed to Westfuckinghill.

 Just spent 185m on the new AECC why wasn't there a consultation on incorporating stadium to the plans. 

There was, Aberdeen were offered the chance to tie in with that project, but said there wasn't room because they wanted a training ground and stadium.

Pretty much this. The club will be privately raging at this, and Boulton is trying to win votes. 

If there was anything actually in this, you would keep it quiet and make a big announcement together. Council have gone public now so when nothing comes of it they can say "well, we tried".

You said "the club board"

It is the "club board" who has presided over fuck up after fuck up after fuck up in the last 20 years.

And the current act of the stadium farce, had been in process prior to Cormack too.

You've changed the argument as your initial one was obviously wrong.

As is this new one.

Also that retarded argument that just because the board say so, then that's it.

Any argument against what they say is invalid.

Even though they've been wrong every single time on this issue in the past.

For anyone to believe they can make more money in a brand new stadium in the sticks versus a brand new stadium in town, 10 mins walk from the centre is nuts.
Pretty sure the board know that as well, despite you arguing on their behalf without knowing their actual thoughts on the above.

You are wanting to have a go new board members for the actions of old board members? Should we have a go at the current players for results before they were here as well? 

As has been seen with the funding for Cormack park and the Gallagher and Hernandez signings, Cormack and his mates at Atlanta are running the show here now, nobody else. They haven’t presided over fuck up after fuck up.

I’ve never said the club won’t make money with a new stadium in town - I said they will have wasted a lot of money to change their plans at this stage, unless the council are going to compensate / help fund the project. They’ve never provided any help thus far, I doubt they will now.

If there is ANY chance of this happening it needs to be fully explored.

Even initial paper talk of it shows there is no appetite to move out to Kingsford  (biggest poll suggests roughly 60% are in favour for new beach site, 30% to redevelop Pittodrie, 10% Kingsford).

But this is what I'm talking about. We now have 60% of people thinking we should build at a site which is nothing more than a thought in Marie Boultons head. 

And I get the wish to have it fully explored - but by who?   We've seen all the time, effort and cost that goes into that.

Does kingsford get put on hold whilst we engage in this wild goose chase? 

 What happens when it's deemed not feasible, we refocus on Kingsford and then Marie Boulton calls up the evening express and mentions another site in the city " hmmm what about the Harlaw playing fields?". Do we put Kingsford on hold again. 

She's an absolute shit stirring cunt, who has stitched the club up good and proper.

I think Kingsford is pretty much on hold due to funding issues just now anyway Ernie so it buys some time I guess.

Yeah. If the council are serious it gives them time to quietly investigate alternative sites keeping AFC fully informed.  Once they have got to a stage where things are shaping up pretty solidly, then they in conjunction with AFC can make an announcement. Absolutely no problem with that.

That's not what has happened, and it's not what is happening here.  So disappointing that people can't see through this.

Sounds like the wifie jumped the gun and shot her mouth off when it would have been better if things were discussed quietly behind the scenes first to manage expectations.

Exactly. And then if nothing comes of it then so be it, and if it becomes the new plans then what a great announcement they have to make.

If that's true then we should be all over it. As others have said...what's happened with covid has certainly put back starting Kingsford probably by 5 years anyway so there's plenty time to see if this really is a feasible option. 60% would obv make the council majority owners. I would hope they haven't got designs on trying to charge us an annual rent......if that is their idea then I'd rather we insisted on us funding 50% so we would be equal owners.

Seemingly a lot of the land is protected? No chance council would pay 60%
