I'm working in Tranmere with my Blackpool Scarf and all Blackpool attire in my van and one of the Cadent Gas lads used to work for Fleetwood through BES as there credit controller 🙈
He's informed me that Cods owner (Piley) was offered £200million for his customer portfolio of BES off a Russian firm and refused it....
Recons the cods in 5/10 years will be a premiership outfit in all seriousness 😳

That's where Fleetwood could benefit. A new stadium probably wouldn't increase home gates but they would get much bigger away followings. Would it make a significant contribution to warrant a new stadium, probably not.
You get the feeling this will be the best and only opportunity they get. Very tight at the top apart from Coventry.
