So, looks like our training centre won't be the "best in the world" for very long, Citeh putting shovels in the ground to this today, ready in two years, spending twice as much as our one:

This was always going to be the case, as soon as someone else built a new one it would have improvements on our design somewhere. Plus for double the money it really should be pretty amazing.

So that means that the sponsorship deal for city is £20million a year and to be honest that is around the going rate

The issue is not whether it is the best (how is that defined/ quantified). More importantly it is that it helps us produce and enhance players and is fit for purpose which it obviously is.
Its a Major step in the long term development of our club!

No friendly Spurs Community environmental activists around that can get up to Manchester and chain themselves to a nearby tree or something to prevent this travesty?

Anyway, they're no doubt spending twice as much as us, but only because they're probably getting charged double what we paid. 'City on the line boss, same quote as Spurs?'. Boss rubs hands.

Director Andy Simons appears alongside Darren Eales of @THFC_Spurs to give a presentation on the Elite Player http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UqcsKoBVIBw … #SoccerEx


The video is relatively interesting -- but a bit on the long side - talking about a lot of the decisions made in the design of the training ground, and the relationship of the decisions with the new FA youth training programmes (Academy Categories etc)

It is a lengthy watch - but fascinating nonetheless.

Thanks very much for that, Spursidol. (y)
