Indeed.
They've just put a station up in Laurencekirk so I'm sure they could get one in place near Cove, in fact they'll probably have to.

Have they?

Never noticed last time I was on the train and hadn't heard about it.

Grounds out of town are shit  :(

Aye, I remember everybody complaining having to get the train to the Allianz  ::)

But, my understanding of what they want to build is:

1.) A New Community stadium (for us)
2.) A smaller stadium in the same area (for Cove)
3.) A 3rd ground for the FP's to play at
4.) An olympic swimming pool
5.) A center of excellence for golf
6.) An industrial estate

I doubt all of it will be built, but with even some of that, and no major link? Not even the mixture of Aberdeen City Council & whoever else is in charge can be that incompetent?!

For the record: I'd rather it was where it is right now, i'd give them the extra £4million to pay for it (if i had it!)
That has just gave him another Signature line

Hmmm.

So AFC have released no more information that we already knew about the proposed community  stadium at a time when the manager and club is under as much pressure as they've seen since the departure of Steve Paterson....just when there is talk of protests against the manager?

I'm setting up a donations site to help out. Get in and start the ball rolling.

Don't get ME started... we got turned down for our airport rail link because Edinburgh HIV pooves were deemed more worthy of the cash  >:D

Why can't Scotland have integrated transport like everywhere else in Europe... fuckin shambles

Because labour&libdems wanted to fuck over the new snp government. Any money should have been spent on the A9

It was my understanding that you are supposed to buy tickets for the trains there, they just don't have ticket barriers and don't seem to have ticket inspectors so they just trust people to pay the correct amount.

If they are going to be doughballs about it and have it on the outskirts, at least stick it up on the North side so its easier for me :wave: plenty fuckin space up North of Danestone they could stick it.

Seriously though, whats wrong with Kings Links? Whats an extra £4million when they are going to spunk away £38 million? And that price will now doubt rise like a virgins cock in a brothel.

In terms of distance, Loiston Loch not a huge difference from Pittodrie from city centre, if Union Street used as starting point.

The council granted planning permission a few weeks ago for a business park/hotel/'leisure facility' complex in the plot between the stadium site and Balmoral Group's premises.

The rail line that goes through Cove is about a mile from the stadium site, not sure how much it would cost to construct a station though. If they did build a station, it could link into the Inverurie-Stonehaven crosslink rail project. A concrete platform and some railings shouldn't be too expensive hopefully.

There used to be a station at Cove but there is now houses built where it used to be.

Mizer! I'm sure that was a load of shite! You were supposed to buy tickets before hand, but as I was informed by my mates in Munich, German public transport is effectively free because the Germans are honest people and pay for things!

Still, I think that Loirsten is a bad idea and would have preferred Kings Links, but was there not also an issue with option to expand? I.e. there wasn't enough room? This was something that Loirston offered. As long as there will be good transport links (highly unlikely) I would be fine with it as I can't see the club choosing anything in the city limits.

I am looking at the ticket and using my standard grade german trying to translate

"Mitbringen von transparten nur mit Genehmigung des Veranstalters"

Bring for transport is my guess?
