So for the benefit of us sheeple, what do you imagine the Board's real agenda is ?stainrod's elbow wrote: ↑Mon Apr 16, 2018 6:22 pmMaybe I just take a different view?
I thought the main idea of moving to a super new stadium was to, er, increase capacity/ match-day income. And do a bit more hospitality, and build a few houses.
The irony of your reply is that I myself have pointed out that revenue from none of this will make a very significant difference to the club's balance sheet in the long term - that will come from Sky money, sponsorship and our inextricably linked league status. On the other hand, the damage to the club's history and 'soul' of abandoning out home is potentially incalculable.
All of which might make more critically minded supporters at least somewhat sceptical about what Hoos'/the Board's real agenda is re upping sticks. (Of course, they could all just 'love QPR', and I'm off my soft head.)
It's certainly not Hoos' agenda, as Fernandes was talking up the possibility of a new ground soon after he walked in the door, 6.5 years ago. Hoos has been here for 3 and is simply doing the board's bidding. I suspect he will move on soon anyway.
I don't understand what possible damage we can do to the club's history by moving. We'll always have our memories of LR and will create new ones at a new ground. The potential loss of "soul" is a much more subjective thing, which ebbs and flows. In my eyes, we lost it for a significant part of the last decade, but thankfully it wasn't terminal.
