May not be obvious but E13 9AZ might be worth a google if you don't recognise it.

Does anyone know if the club ever respond to WHUISA on issues raised like this?

You don't even need the full post code.

It will accept simply E6 for example.

I work a lot at weekends so yesterday’s meeting was the first I’ve been able to get to. Glad I did. Good lads and lasses there. The architect (sorry, don’t know his name) was particularly interesting. He’s the bloke Swallow spoke of. Said that absolutely nothing can be done until athletics isn’t there any more. If they weren’t then his proposal would he that whilst nowt can be done to much of the ground it would be possible to rebuild an 18,500 seater BML that had seats much closer to the pitch, and left room for outlets, fan zone etc behind it.

He’s offfered to host a meeting with the club about this but nothings come if it yet.

What struck me was the almost painful to behold desire to do things properly and democratically. Fair play to Mark for that. Also the sheer volume of different angles / viewpoints on Brady. As a proud malcontent I was happy to have been part of the vote though. Have to make the most of the chance - **** knows when I’ll next be able to attend. :lol:

Interesting that was a conclusion re ground improvement I was considering this past few weeks and was even doing a few drawings to explore the idea that one side could be redeveloped rather than the whole bowl. But as the architect said pointless till athletics gets the boot.

I think the Brady vote was to the detriment of WHUISA. It will have zero effect but will show us, I am a member, as a bit immature responding to name calling with more name calling. I have been really impressed with some of the work done by the leadership thus far. I was not at the meeting to hear the arguments but the resolution passed does not reflect a sensible debate ....if that is what happened. If we concentrate on important and sensible issues then WHUISA has the potential to build into a real supporters club which, incidentally, the old one never was. The representation of the member unjustly treated was brilliant and by developing a mature strategy of bringing pressure on the owners of the things that really matter we could really become a force in the advancement of our great club. The time and effort wasted on calling out Brady for a column that is already chip paper demonstrates a lack of proportion and maturity.

Chip paper maybe but it has already soured the relationship between us and a few other clubs so it does hold some weight!

Karen Brady has demonstrated on several occaisions that she cannot write a newspaper column that enhances the work she does for the club. Instead time and time again her gossipy, snarky newspaper column has caused issues whether it be offending other football professionals or the supporters of the club she works for.

It's no brainer for me...she has to drop one of these "jobs"
