The General's Interview
For those who missed it, it should remain live on the Official Site for a good few hours yet.
Please Click Here for the full transcript.
As we are used to from the forum, we'll ignore all attempts to illicit transfer target news or comments on future player contracts and I'll pick out the more interesting comments.
The General confirms we will be competing in Hong Kong at the Asia Trophy - might be news for some - but there are no plans to tour the US or the Continent at least thus far.
Plans for the pre season of 2012 are to be discussed soon.
The World Cup debacle will have no affect on ground renovations planned. As many will remember we changed plans that would originally tie in with the Olympics in 2012 to ensure we would more than meet the requirements of a World Cup bid.
Fabian Delph has returned from a stint of rehab in the States and his recovery is going very well indeed.
With regards to the often questioned Public Address System, the General has again confirmed that solutions are being looked at that will fit with the work to the North Stand when that takes place.
With regards to the kit, it selling extremely well as we head towards the Festive Day of the year despite our early season problems with Nike's manufacturing.
In regards to the General's break from forums, he assures us he will return (maybe in a few weeks) and states 'I guess I am probably a bit too emotional about my feelings for the club' when it comes to his words being deliberately misinterpreted by the media.
When commenting about the kit, he added he saw a lad wearing the away shirt in Florida a few days ago and he almost kissed him...coming to a tabloid near you soon!
