    That was the time-frame I was thinking, too.
    I was kinda alluding to the fact that be a gap between someone saying they were gonna surpass us, and it actually being open, during which time we would be market leaders :eek: Just as something that is state-of-the-art will, sooner-or-later, be no longer state-of-the-art, because something newer is state-of-the-art.

    Why you little...:mad:

    I have lost count of the number of times that you see a team boast they have 'the best facilities around'.

    It's amazing that they can't get any more recent pics on the official site than March, and they only uploaded those a few weeks back. By the sounds of it the place is almost complete. SHOW US SOME NEW PICS FOR FARKS SAKES!

    But if the Goons claim they have the best faculties around...we'll know they are lying ;)

    Everyone boasts about their new training facilities being the best and state-of-the-art.

    QPR Exec: As you can see this is our physio room, it's state-of-the-art.
    Journo: Really?
    QPR Exec: Oh yes, we have all the modcons, a bed, some bandages and the pinnacle of medical science; a bucket and sponge.
    Journo: Just the one? I've heard Fulham are looking to have 3 of them.
    QPR Exec: Codswallop, 3 buckets and sponges, who do they think they are? Doctors?

    Still no pic update since March on the official site. Unreal. You'd think that we'd be tooting how amazing this 'state of the art' facility is. They can barely be bothered sending someone up the A10 to take a few pics!!

    Mate of mine in Belgium is doing some fireproofing work at the training ground. Says it is the business, and he's West Ham!

    That's because it's going to be a state of the art tree.

    Wasn't there a story that we had a young Brazilian tree on a week trial?

    I thought we were going to sign a legendary brazilian tree, but then it sent us a letter saying it couldn't be uprooted.

    Be really cool if they have an interactive tour of the training centre on the website when it opens next month.

    Infact I might email the club to ask if they're doing this...

    There were workmen putting high wire-mesh fences around the training pitches yesterday, and it's all looking very impressive—well, as much as you can see of it from the car park at Myddelton House Gardens.
