    Good luck to them. I would've happily donated, but not £500 to a club I have no affiliation to!

    Can you please name some more things you would have done if you'd had the inclination I'm riveted

    It's a bond scheme so not really donating, guessing the interest rate will be a lot better than a bank.

    It sounds like a great idea, I think I'm going to get involved at the lower end of the scale.

    950k for a 1600 seater stand . Bloody hell did they only get 1 quote? . I don't think we paid much more than that for the east stand .

    Good luck to them.

    I can guarantee there will be a reason this wouldn't work at Oakwell.

    I'm a quantity surveyor and you'd be surprised how far a million quid doesn't go in construction.

    4% up to 8% pretty good.

    Tbf would be on a much bigger scale so a lot harder to achieve.

    Probably talking the best part of ten million for a new West Stand with it being the "main" stand...given the maintenance work on it this summer it's gonna be with us for a long time yet.

    A supporters bar area. A genuine space might be more achievable?

    Would folk use it though? Personally I prefer going round town before the match and only get to the ground for kick off, I find supporters bars a bit sterile seeing as it just doesn't make financial sense for them to put a lot of money into it - plastic glasses, dodgy lines, old beer, not for me sorry.

    I meant as a concept ( financially) given your work experience.

    Definitely a market for it, Redfearns is always full int it, no idea how financially viable it would be for the club to create a specific bar, it's only through the generosity of Hicksy and friends with their time that Redfearns works, club would obviously want to make some money out of it.

    Designed a lower league sides stand last year of similar size and it was built for a bit more than that so not a bad price
