I've just taken Wolves to tht Prem title after 5 years (I think), and asked the board to expand the stadium to capitalise on CL revenue. But the council refused planning permission the stingy twats! I've never seen this before, anyone else ever had it??

i always thought this was rubbish after 25 years at hereford and winning every thing possible (with the exception of league 1, finishing second to gain promotion). 4 champions leagues, 5 prems, 3 FA cups, 4 league cups, 3 world club champs, and no stadium named after me.

then i left and after 4 years with liverpool winning everything they named the new stadium after me

We have it irl, Hartlepool Utd owners want to buy their ground Victoria Park and it's land off the council who own the ground mainly to expand the away end seeing it only small but nooo they stingy bastards, everyone hates Peter Mandelson when he brought it for the council... ***

But what happens if the club doesn't own their stadium. Like with DPMM, when you ask for a bigger stadium they respond the stadium is not theirs. But if you ask it more often will they eventually build a new stadium or what?

with Everton its realistic, as the council would reject a ground expansion for many reasons,
1 being there is no room unless you take about 100 or so people out of there homes.
