Regarding the council plans for a new football stadium and leisure centre at Aberdeen beach.
I’m pro the Kingswells development because it offers the chance to build an all-in-one community hub and sports venue, with plenty of parking being made available and easy access to the venue for everyone.
I would, however, also be happy to have it built at the new location down at the beach, if they took a good long look at addressing the travel, traffic and parking issues.
I would pedestrianise part of the boulevard on match days and have music and food vendors between the amusement park and stadium.
Creating a good pre and post-match atmosphere.
So I do believe it could work at the new site, but still against remaining where it is, as it offers no positives.
ARI staff still kind
Re the story about north-east NHS staff being exhausted.
Despite the circumstances, the staff are all doing a fantastic job in ARI. I have been in two weekends in a row, and even though they are knackered and hungry (they just don’t get time to stop, including the porters who are working right through without a minute to stop and eat), and most likely emotionally drained, they all kept smiles on their faces and were kind.
Re discussions over Sam Cosgrove possibly going to Birmingham City.
With the current economic situation, all clubs are looking to sell (depending how they look in the league), £2 million is a lot of money and I think the club should sell him asap!!!
