    What about the facts surrounding the Falmer bid? They should be in the list at the top of this thread too.

      Why? The re-opened Inquiry is only considering the viability of the alternative sites.
      When Steve McQueen met The Blob, he tried to kill it. It probably never crossed his mind to try and take it out to a restaurant.

      Hi Folks,

      I still can't get my head round whether this is good news or bad news for you guys.

      I am sure that after this next inquiry John Prescott will take his thumb out of his arse and the building at Falmer can start.

      We had a public meeting in Wrexham last night to spell out the alternative to moving away from the Racecourse. It was very well received and the leader of the council said he wouldn't even talk to Hamilton about moving!

      This morning we have been calling B&Q's property department to ask if the rumours are true that they are interested in the Racecourse Ground as a potential site for a new store. After about 400 calls they have taken the unprecidented step of issuing a press release to say that they are not going to build on the home of the Dragons!

      Even the local press are starting to get behind our campaign now. Yesterday the Evening Leader printed a story that Hamilton had threatned to close the ground if there was any more protests against the move.

      Hamilton is obviously rattled because he also left a menacing voicemail message on the Supporters Trust's phone line calling us "lowlifes".

      Anyway, keep us posted on any developments about Falmer. Everyone in Wrexham is 100% behind you.

      Looks like a bit of selective quoting from Lord B. This is Collyer's conclusion on Sheepcote :-

      18.78 Of course this site has its disadvantages as well as advantages - just like any other. As to whether it represents a realistic alternative to Falmer is essentially a question of balance. And in my judgement the balance at Sheepcote Valley demonstrably falls in favour of its suitability; moreover, any disadvantages which it does have are far outweighed by those which make the Falmer site, in my overall opinion [see paragraphs 18.184-18.190], wholly unacceptable

      I've got a nice site here in Bath you might be interested in. It won't cost you much.

      Do we? I don't care where the site is, as long as we get it.

      Sheepcote, Waterhall, Falmer...they're all the same to me. Just give us a stadium.

      If the bid for falmer is as straight forward as it says at the begining of this thread why have we got to reopen it surly thats all the eviedence we need.

      did the case miss something did we not explain our selves enought for the reasons we cant use the other sites.

      thats what i dont understand if we have given all this info why do we have to do it again

      The way I am reading this is that the only other site that could possibly be used for a stadium is Toads Hole Valley, but this won't happen due the the lack of public transport serving it.

      So, it's going to be Falmer
