London Road: Green light for redevelopment plans

Following extended consultations with the city council, terms have now been signed and agreed by both parties.

Posh chief executive Bob Symns said in a club statement: "This marks a unique milestone in the history of the football club and will also show a long-term benefit for not only the club but for the local community, its people and the business sector as a whole.

"Whilst the journey to finalise has taken longer than originally predicted, the complex and detailed new lease negotiation and funding challenges have rightly been afforded the necessary time to complete in a professional and sustainable manner."

He added: "The city council have always been honest and precise in its South Bank vision and how the football club could knit together its aspiration for sport, community, education and carbon challenge excellence at London Road. We are almost there."

reat games with free flowing atracttive football featuring 4 top teams, showing it is possible to win in the right way entertaining fans at the same time. All the mourinho apologists if you only care about the result why watch the game at all or any game for that matter. It made me laugh how they all turned up on twitter to criticise pep when mourinho couldn't even get this far.
