Argyle 2018

The new board have laid the foundations for a new stadium above and beyond that of what we were spoon-fed for the last 10 years with their bid to host matched for the World Cup 2018. And with the Life Centre now given the go ahead, the stumbling block/excuse of the previous board for delaying Phase II/Redevelopment of the South Stand, has gone. Therefore, should it not really start as soon as the hoardings go up around the Mayflower Leisure Centre and Swimming Pool?

What are we to expect? A stadium with a capacity of 40,000, double that of what we have currently/with Phase II complete. Yet with the fan base we have today, who would fill it outside of the Cup matches? A pipe dream perhaps? Or real ambition? Without doubt the intention is great to increase the profile of Plymouth, not just Argyle, but the city worldwide. But let's not run before we can walk.
