Best Off Field Achievements

The end of season awards continue, this time 'best off field achievements' as suggested by Erod.

The re-development of Bodymoor Heath from state of the Ark to the best in Europe won with 32% of votes.

The full results are:

Training ground re-development (32%)

Lots of great off field achievements, love the new badge, the sponsorships, training ground, everything really. I'm at university down in South Wales, but i'm going to get a season ticket this year and try and make it down to every match. I had one before i came 2 seasons ago, but the travelling was a ******.

Travelling is a ****** (*****, they censored me as well) but welcome back cubos. All that travelling from South Wales would be much cheaper, or more enjoyable, if you managed to convince 3 or 4 friends to make the pilgramage each time with you.

In my opinion the greatest off-field achievement has been the fact that 20+ years of malaise have been blown away in one season. This is really remarkable considering the atmosphere surrounding the club just 12 months ago and if I hadn't seen it for myself I wouldn't have believed it possible. The chairman and board have been absolutely top class and have "walked the walk" instead of talking a lot as per the previous incumbents. All of the ingredients listed in the poll above are testament to just what a top class outfit we are now becoming. Before we were seen as also rans, we weren't even a laughing stock, worse still, we were just viewed with apathy by the football world and the general media. There is a definate sea change and we are now talked about as having serious potential to become serious challengers at the top end of the league.

Got to be the brand spanking new training facility, that surely makes us the envy of all of our competitors.
