Wolves to build a "world-class" football academy

Wolves to build a

The council have given the green light for Wolves to go ahead with plans for our training ground expansion.

The £50 million development will see Wolves training ground expanded, which is the first step towards the planned "world-class" football academy.

The scheme received a few objections due to area being on green belt land in Compton Park, however he council's planning committee earlier this week opted to back the plans, as they thought the benefits to the city "outweighed" those concerns.

As part of the development, the indoor academy arena at Aldersley Leisure Village will be handed over to Wolves Community Trust.

St Edmund`s Catholic School will be relocated with part of the funding coming from Wolves, Wolverhampton University will also leave the site.

Around 400 jobs will be created by the construction.

I got home yesterday teatime and I was hoping to throw myself straight into a new debate but nothing has happened. As the guy in the next bed was a Crystal Palace fan and the one opposite supported Spurs, I did manage to engage in some lively banter. It's interesting to hear outside perceptions of our team and manager.

Perhaps it was because the two fellow-patients were my age but they seemed to have a great deal of respect for WW. They remembered our glory days and thought it sad when we went into decline. The Spurs guy said he enjoyed watching his team playing Wolves, especially recently, because they have been exciting games. Indeed, he thought that this year's match could have gone the other way, had we scored first. Regarding our manager, both guys had taken MM's public persona at face value, believing him to be the bluff, straight-talking, no-nonsense Yorkshireman he purports to be. There are links with Crystal Palace of course as the guy in the next bed pointed out that their manager, Dougie Freedman, used to play for WW. He seems to be doing well there. We have promised to meet up to share a beer or two should our teams play in the same division, which at the moment is quite likely, one way or the other. I hope the match is a PL one! Oh, I should say that he works for the drug company that markets Viagra and that the person who recognised its specific properties was a little, weedy individual. He was so thin, he said, that if he turned sideways you wouldn't see him. I begged to differ, thinking that he was sure to stand out.

Surely we don't need to spend that amount...Half that and the rest on the team would be better IMO

I think its better to spend the money on infrastructure as that keeps the club in a good position for years to come. Half of that on the squad in January brings no guarantee of staying up and we could see no longer term benefits.

Spending insufficient money guarantees that we do not stay up and thereby waste money shelled out on infrastructure. Of course, there is a balance to be made but our management have not found it.
