Looks like from the supporters club meeting tonight the tannoy system is due to be replaced so may be able hear it in the Bycars at last. Fair play to Kevin and Carol as that is a serious investment they are making on it 

 

In what universe does a new tannoy system cost £250k??????

Stage in front of the Railway? That’s a bit weird. Thought it’d be at a long end of the pitch for sure.

Also yeah. 250,000 quid for some speakers is mental.

Shocked me as well! It should be top notch for that price surely? I can just imagine Norman spitting his coffee out at a quote like that, the cogs in his head turning, light bulb moment, and then ordering 2 paper cups and a length of string

TBH I’d have thought a clear PA system would be a condition of the grounds safety certificate. In relation to a ground evacuation, hopefully we’d never have to use it for that purpose.

Reading between the lines from the tweets, but there's more than one comment about 'consultations on the stadium' and things (like the turnstiles) not being used because they're not fit for purpose. 

Has Carol realised that even maintaining Vale Park requires a bottomless pit of cash and moving to a more modern stadium may be a better long term solution than attempting to modernise the old place? That's not me saying we should, but when you see a tannoy system costing 250k then it does make you wonder.

Can't we go with our begging bowl to the council like those jokers up the road did?

Total waste of 250K IMO. Can think of much better things to be spending the money on. Can't believe tannoy system is top of the list of things to sort, mind boggling.

It’s a huge outlay definitely. Can only guess the SAG have told them to sort it out if they are going to be allowed to host the Robbie concert but to stress that’s just me guessing.

Exactly what I thought tbh

It's really wound me up actually 😂 There must be things that have gone on that we're not aware of but 250K... so the guys in the Bycars can hear Ace of Spades blared out & the team sheet with some clarity. Just absolutely ridiculous. I'd have questioned spending 50K nevermind quarter of a mill! Worrying.

For £250,000 for some speakers, wires and rawl plugs I fully expect Brian Blessed, David Attenborough and that American bloke who's famous for shouting "let's get ready to rumble" at boxing matches to be doing all the announcements from next season onwards.

That's what I can't understand, the tannoy  is fine in LS. What's it like in the railway?  Surely just the bycars can't cost that much. Or does it have to be a completely new system?

What Tannoy!!!! That's what it's like in the Railway 🤣

If there was ever an emergency the club would be in trouble it's that bad.

Pardon. It was pretty booming in the LS last time I was there. Maybe someone with a fog horn. Given the amount C+K have put in fixing stuff it just goes to show what a state the place was in that this is still not done. Still 250,000 seems outrageous. As Doha says a few speakers and some cable.

Probably a need to update the electronics too.

Carry on using a portable one then if it’s that much. The pitch is number 1 priority if we want to progress, win games, bigger crowds, then improve other areas. Railway stand is another area that’s going to cost big time.
