Re: Training barn - Gyan's money should be used to build one.
Been saying this for years. For the price of ONE decent player we could have indoor top class facilities that will allow us to train when its too cold / windy - which is often is in the north east compared to the rest of the country.
We complain about it being harder for us being up here, but then we don't help ourselves.
Building this barn could well lessen the impact of our every-fucking-year winter injury crisis - what would you rather have:
1 - 1 more good player but 10 injured ones over the winter
2 - 1 less good player, but 5 injured ones over the winter
Easy choice IMO.
