In Topic: New Stadium Approved

I had some doubts we'd meet the communicated schedule of being in to the new training ground this summer but we look to be making progress so might prove me wrong yet

 

I did notice over the last few updates the dates mentioned have gone from "Summer 2019" to "Late Summer 2019" then to "in 2019". May be entirely innocent.

Champions League doesn't make any difference regarding the game being screened.

 

There are already guff championship games also being shown live that night at the same time.

 

Yes it does. You can't show "top level competitions" at the same time as Champions League matches. This includes the top division and cup competitions. Sky can show Championship games as it's lower league. The French league shows games and just pays the fine - this happened with a Man City game last season too. The money coming in from Premier Sports won't be enough to cover the fine so we won't be able to show it. Shocker of a rule. You used to not even be allowed to schedule games on the same night, whether it was televised or not. 

 

Celtic played at St Johnstone in a 6pm kick off once to get around it but with this having the potential for extra time and pens it would have to be a 5pm kick off which isn't happening.

Ia there not another building for the community facilities? Or is that all in the stadium. This seems to just be changing and the football department offices and the gym

 

The plan is for the first team to use the changing and office facilities in the stadium when it is built. The pavilion will only be used by the first team until the stadium is done at which point the "professional" end of it will be used by the full time youth players/staff. Although there's no gym in the stadium so I guess the first team will continue to use that in the pavilion. 


In Topic: Next Seasons Kit..

Is there any way we can get the club to involve the fans in the choice of strips for next season?

 

There's a very good reason 99% of clubs don't do this. It's very poor marketing. Even if you only give 2 choices you immediately potentially alienate 49% of the fanbase. 4 choices and you could have up to 74% of your fans preferring a kit you won't be releasing. When the one they didn't vote for wins those fans are in a negative mindset about the new kit and sales from that portion of the fanbase will be much smaller than if they had only seen the released top.

Why has Tyler Chicken changed his name to the even more ludicrous Mykyta?

 

Different loon. Believe Tyler Chicken is no longer at AFC. Google suggests he's at the Broch. 

 

Tyler Mykyta is/was Tyler Alexander - one of the ball boys seen behind the goal in the League Cup Final penalty shootout at Parkhead.
