You tell me how many SL teams have built a new stadium with their own money, no help from the Council or funds from developers etc?

Yes, certain teams like Hull KR, Dewsbury & Feath have done an excellent job in building or doing up what they used to have and are to be massively congratulated but on the other hand, they own their stadia we don't. If only we had a football team to jump in with hey.

It was only in 2010 that Trinity chucked about a million at Belle Vue for new roofs and a lick of paint but when all said and done, you can't polish a turd.

You also won't find a Trinity fan that won't admit that several former owners haven't done enough with the money they've been given to improve the ground, but when the owner in 2009/10 lost the ownership of the stadium and sent us into admin where does that leave anyone that takes over, unless they've got about £20m to throw into one and no owner has done that, not even those with that kind of money spare.

ATEOTD the said promise to build one wasn't just for Trinity, it was for the whole of Wakefield, such as the College that was going to use it and it's facilities, which also had other aspects to it such as 2 full-size multi-use pitches, where there are hardly any of in Wakefield full stop for people to us.
But screw it, it's easier to have a crack at Wakefield, rather than the Council or developer who used the goodwill of the Wakefield public to drum up 15k signatures to build on green belt land and give something back to the wider Community and then do fack all for 7 years, just lies. We could go even further back to where the Council was building a Leigh like sports village in Thornes Park but obviously, after a couple of years of talk it fell through and Wakefield moved onto said Newmarket development.

As usual got to love the so-called RL family. :lol:


And yet another "it's not fair, no one will build us a stadium post".
