City Reserves used to play there back in the day, but now they have an agreement with Hyde FC to play there. Nowadays the Regional arena doesn't tend to see much action as far as I can gather.

Best regards,

There is whispers about the athletic stadium going to Ten Acres Lane, but they are just shadows in the Miles Platting dark if you ask me.

The stadium gets pulled out for the final of the Manchester Premier Cup final sometimes and it appears to be used by students at Manchester Met University as well.

The neighboring indoor ventures tend to more overtly used. May sees a taekwondo tournament, This month there was the national squash competition and it is regularly used by local schools and Sale Harriers for training.

Did not know Hyde FC have the use of the outdoor arena Slip?

you read it wrong - City Reserves (or EDS as they like to call them) play at Hyde's Ewen Fields ground.

If you like mud being moved around you'll like these.

There's an absolute huge mound of soil to the left.













Even caught a seagull.

The memory is fading.

Can't remember if these have been posted/seen before.

Taken from a pretty decent CGI company. Apparently the person who owns the company MODS a forum as well.


Kept that quiet B4mmy.

Manchester City Etihad Academy

The Planit Group have been working on the Manchester City Academy plan that has just been unveiled. A brand new footballing academy and training complex in the east of the city. The proposed youth development and first team academy will be built on an 80-acre brownfield site next to the Etihad Stadium. It will include 17 pitches and a 7,000 capacity stadium for youth matches.

This small selection of images form part of the Landscape and Visual Impact Assessment.





You're not working on the........... as well are you? Stop jrb!

Manchester City could be brought before a public inquiry this spring as part of a dispute with landowners who are blocking their plans for a training ground opposite the Etihad Stadium.

The M.E.N. can reveal that town hall chiefs are preparing to move forward with a compulsory purchase order bid, before the summer, to help push through the plans if agreements cannot be reached with the two businesses standing in the Blues’ way.

If successful, a CPO would force the landowners in the 80-acre area of Openshaw West to sell to the council at market value.

Manchester City’s £100m training campus plans

City’s £100m complex would include a 7,000-capacity arena, community sports facilities and sixth form college.

The decision on whether to grant an order would be made by the secretary of state for communities following a public inquiry before a government planning inspector.

It is expected the Blues would have to reveal more details than ever about their plans for the area should the hearing take place.

The club’s training ground scheme sits at the heart of a major regeneration framework expected to change the fortunes of east Manchester and deliver new jobs by turning the area into a world capital of sport.

New East Manchester regeneration chief Eddie Smith told a meeting of Manchester council’s executive: "Hopefully we can have a resolution of this of this before we get into CPO.

"We have to have these (land)owners coming to the table and wanting to engage in positive dialogue but the CPO is the last recourse we have and we are ready and prepared for it."

United fan refusing to sell land forces Manchester City training campus plan into a public inquiry

Manchester City will go head-to-head at a public inquiry with a United fan blocking their plans for a £100m training ground.

Reds supporter Shaun O’Brien has refused to sell the site of his vehicle recovery business, which stands on land earmarked for the development.

And he has offered to sell sections of the land for £250 each to fellow United supporters in a bid to block the Blues’ plans.

The M.E.N. revealed earlier this month that town hall chiefs planned to issue a compulsory purchase order if an agreement could not be reached.

Businessman urges Manchester United fans to buy his land - to stop City's £100m training complex

Despite ongoing talks it appears council bosses have now decided to go ahead with a CPO.

But an order can only be issued by a government minister after a public inquiry has been held before a planning inspector.

It is understood that the inquiry has now been arranged for May 1. The Blues could be forced to reveal undisclosed details about the vast project opposite the Etihad Stadium.

If the council is successful, Mr O’Brien would be forced to sell his land at the market rate.

Mr O’Brien – who claims to have offered a compromise deal to the Blues – said in a statement: "We were asked to attend a meeting at MCFC on 23 December 2011 – the day before Christmas Eve. We agreed, on the proviso that a decision maker would be present. Our compromise offer was accepted in principle at the meeting.

"In our opinion, the purpose of this CPO is solely to court the aspirations of a trillionaire business family from the Middle East at the expense of local businessmen. Do they really need a CPO? Could they not have just done the honourable thing and approached us with a fair offer?

"The ‘public interest’ element has been squeezed out of this to justify what is to be a major financial investment for a private business."

The inquiry will also decide whether to grant a CPO on a second business, New Life Windows in nearby Quinn Street. City plan to build a 7,000 capacity stadium, community sports facilities and a sixth form college at the complex.

A City spokesman confirmed there will be a public inquiry but declined to comment further.

I wonder if when they do the CPO, they could put a little paragraph at the back in tiny writing "This CPO will include the CPO of the Edwardian Fire Station opposite Piccadilly Station"

This United is being an obnoxious, irritating ****. Hardly surprising, United lot do seem to have some awful followers.

£1 million is a fair price, especially if he is helped to move his business nearby. But obviously he wants "revenge for the 6-1 defeat" (as he has admitted) and this is his pathetic way of doing it.

Every true Mancunian will want to see this built. A lot seems to be right in this plan for gentrification and hope for locals, particularly with the creation of the new college and ongoing construction of housing. In short, better than a bloody casino.

I'd go as far to say that development is the most important in Manchester in the same way that Salford Quays is in the west. A key development in east Manchester will hopefully entice new developers to build on the vast amount of desolate, vacant land around north and east Manchester. Particularly as this community/training facility and leisure complex will compliment the NOMA and Ancoats (towards the north/east of Mcr city centre) redevelopment very well.

Only two businesses haven't accepted the offers.

So either these two businesses want more than the market value, or the other businesses haven't done their homework properly?

It's obivious what O'Brien is playing at. Or is it? As for the other business. At least they've kept their council.

As we all know, CPO defeats are a very expensive.......

Will that fat lard Pickles decide the CPO ruling like he did for London Road?

If he blocks it, it would be typical of this govt and we may as well just turn the lights off.

Still looks like a crime scene from Taggart, John.

As much as we all known the gentleman at the centre of the dispute is wrong and unhelpful, can we please refrain from using explosive cyber hoolie terms on here, unless you wish to appear all Skaus amongst your peers on here.

As for a public inquiry, personally i would welcome this as the ideal opportunity for ADUG to demonstrate their commitment to this development and also allow Mancunians to have a thorough examination and reassurance on this.

Albeit a short inquiry, that also on hopes sees ADUG generously acquire an old fire station from its owner.

By the way John, i am done with trawling Blue Moon at the moment. So may i ask our residency MCFC und ADUG expert has any more been heard about the rumoured rugby venture in Eastlands?

Nothing. Lock down. The state of North Korea has nothing on.........

HB was at Wolves yesterday, but he declined the offer of a seat next to me(so I took the Mrs) and decided to sit in the Directors Box next to the Wolves Chairman instead.

However, one interesting snippet has popped up on BM today, courtesy of Fbloke.
