ABERDEEN FC WESTHILL MOVE.
Aberdeen FC Westhill move is a disaster waiting to happen, its all about greed and a promise of getting millions if Pitt was sold off.
Aberdeen FC Westhill move, was the dreamchild of the current board, it always has been and that’s why there is no plan B.
It must be worth a lot more than that now and that’s why there will never be a plan B.
The plan was always going to involve moving away from the city on to land that could not be used for hardly any other purpose?
The local rag will never say a bad word about the home team and Charlie Allan their beloved Milne and Co devotee is as biased as they come, all his local drinking buddies can confirm.
What a great idea lets build a £40 million football ground on land that cant be used for almost any-other purpose and sell our current ground on prime real-estate worth a lot more and get others to pay for it, whatever the real reasons are the fans were not even thought about!
Only true property magnets and international investment bankers and accountants can come up with that massive corker, can there be any of those types on the current Aberdeen FC board we wonder?
The local rag has known of these facts as long as International Scotland yet has stayed silent, you have to ask why?
Aberdeen FC Westhill move is a disaster because as all of Scotland knows its travel links from inside the City won’t cope on big match days, there is no parking as such on the new site, and no-train links planned.
Jush how a development like this can get planning permission in the first place must be of a grave concern to others?
Just how you can get 30,000+ supporters there and home is going to be a nightmare and that’s in good weather, Westhill gets 4 times more snow fall in the winter than the current ground next to Aberdeen’s beach front and no-one has even had the thought of mentioning it?
There is virtually no-where for fans to have a drink or eat before the match if it’s at Westhill which means 5000 plus fans have little reason to go there.
Visiting fans traveling by trains how will they get there traveling on the same public buses as Aberdeen fans is asking for big trouble, yet Police Scotland says nothing, time to get real guys?
Mr Yule claims its only 6 miles away from the city centre but most City bound fans are only 3 miles away in all directions to the current ground so most will have to travel at least 8-10 miles by public transport 1 way.
Aberdeen has the most costly public transport of any place in the UK so any return fare is going to cost at least £5 plus other fares getting to the pickup points, if you travel by taxi and caught up in lots of traffic not much change out of £25 one way and no guarantee of getting one back home.
Where will all the taxi’s park for the return journey beggar’s belief it has not been thought about?
Who is going to cover these high travel costs to get there, hardly anyone will go there so it’s a massive white elephant before it’s even built.
On the last question of who gains, will the usual suspect be behind this latest build like the disaster of the Richard Donald Stand built on rubbish heap land again.
The fans don’t want it but the board does not care and the local rag is too scared to ask the hard and difficult questions about how fans are to get there and back as per usual.
Yes there is a bypass but the internal single lane westend city roads will never cope with 15,000 never mind 30,000 plus and no-one has uttered a word of this makes one think there’s lots of greedy fingers in a lot of very many pies (who ate all the pies).
The ones that don’t care are the ones that already has a private car space booked and waiting, stuff the rest of us and yet there’s no plan B and the destruction of Aberdeen FC as we know is complete!
£40 – £100 for a ticket each plus travel and refreshments per match is not everyones idea of fun but the people making plan A, basically gets it for free!
Car parking charges, wow does anyone know the cost on match days yet, it would be cheaper booking a return flight to London to see our yids and come back the next day then traveling 16 miles to see your home team play and at least its proper football being played and getting entertained in the process without frezzing our bits off in the winter months?
Aberdeen FC really knows how to sell this plan, not!
Aberdeen is not as cash rich as it once was so this is a no-brainer really, yet the masters of the universe at Aberdeen FC are so rich anyway what do they really care about its supporters needs or wants?
There is another story behind the above about values of each seat then and early power struggles that brought this plan forward and this website knows it all as per usual.
ABERDEEN FC WESTHILL MOVE will happen as there is NO PLAN B.
