The formal application process, should be straight forward enough in terms of the main headaches will have been ironed out, sorted and agreed before hand. Just the general public and councillors to get pass, then all going well, spades will start hitting the ground.
Nelms and Keyes both love this club, despite the issues this season they both want us to be successful and have tried new ideas that haven't come to pass but they don't give up trying! They know that a new stadium and training ground will put us into the elite clubs in Scottish football. Thats why, even if we do get relegated we still need to go for the new stadium, after all its much more than just a football stadium, it will be an arena/conference centre for the whole city, that long term will only aid this club and benefit us for years to come and I hope generations after me, won't need to endure the pain of administrations that we have had to face and this is what the new arena will offer us, endless possibility of its use within a city that is now known worldwide for its ambition.
Yes short term (this season), hasn't been great but we have been through a lot worse and I think every support needs put this into perspective. I understand the fear that supporters have of businessmen in general involved in our beloved football club with the trouble that we have had in the past. But there is nothing to suggest that the Keyes family would harm us in anyway. Five years they have been involved in Dundee FC, putting in millions of pounds worth of their own cash. Some fans just have personal dislike towards them which then overdrives their conspiracy theories, which is fine not everyone can be liked, it's the world we live in.
The Keyes family have made Dundee FC a stable, professional club, something we have lacked for decades.
