I mean, that's pure speculation really. It depends on the size of the plans they're looking to undertake. One would imagine there needs to be quite a bit of development even if we went to the Concorde or they would've swapped the first team with the academy earlier.
Fair point. I suppose you're right.

I'm not surprised to hear it might be the Concorde site. If we were going to give up on Warren Farm, then I think it must be an existing training center or we'd have to go through all the associated planning and regulatory steps and the related risks.
Perhaps it's cheaper, but it's also probably quicker and might be better. We should have it ready for next season, which was looking unlikely with WF.

WF required around 9 months worth of work using landfill to level the area, something that Heston doesn't require, it is also half the size of WF as the facilities will be solely for QPR use and need not provide facilities for the local community; this will be taken care of by continued involvement in the WF plans for the future.
It's not the despair that will kill you, it's the hope.

Hate being harsh but don't want any further energy, time or money wasted on WF no matter what (false) promises we've made to Ealing council....

It's a dog toilet for the residents, let em keep it that way....

I also never want to hear TF talk/message about QPR again.... Little chance of that I suppose!
2019/2020.... Keep Calm, no matter the season, we'll follow our team.....

I think Fernandes and Meranum will be kept very busy dealing with the Airbus bribery scandal for the foreseeable future. It may even mean the end of our association with Tune Group if it starts getting ugly.

My apologies to them both.
