His call for patience and suggesting that small steps will be made do not indicate any real intent to improve the facilities in any meaningful way or to increase the capacity of the ground
https://www.betweenthestripes.ie/blog/2 ... l-upgrades“I think given the owners come from North America they understand the importance of good facilities. There are exciting times ahead, we’ll make the small steps, hopefully as quickly as possible and all I would ask is a degree of patience as we put the plan in place for more major improvements at Oriel said Devlin, who praised the dedication and levels of investment put into the clubs on-field budget by the owners since their arrival at the club.
It's not a question of including or excluding parts of what he said. I thought he used loads of positive language (as any professional communicator will) but I did not get the sense that there was anything of substance likely in the near future regarding ground improvements
The current owners are in place for about 18 months and we are still in the dark about any real aspirations on ground improvement, Maybe this is because they don't have any. Ditto as regards the previous owners despite repeated talk of consultant reports and feasibility studies
I recognise that others may have got a different interpretation and sought other peoples impressions. I still do!
