The Years Fly By


BILLY'S CONTRACT


In last month's Monkey Business, issue number 185, we touched on Mark Maguire's Project 2025 which was revealed in the Hartlepool Mail in November.

To recap, Project 2025 would see major ground improvements and renovation work carried out at Victoria Park with the club playing their football in League One. The club hoped to make an announcement in December.

It is now January, a new year and a new decade and, prior to this being printed, 'We ain't heard nothing yet'. The whole thing could end up a bit like the Brexit fiasco with the leave date constantly being put back. Many fans will be thinking that we have heard all these pie-in-the-sky promises before about ground developments, grandiose plans and the like.
"The whole thing could end up a bit like the Brexit fiasco with the leave date constantly being put back."

To ensure credibility, if there is nothing to announce at this stage, the club should publicly say so or give the reason for the delay. The CEO could hold his hands up and say that he confused the delivery date for Project 2025 with the Zager and Evans hit single 'In the year 2525' which was written in 1969. Confused? I am.

I was recently asked by a friend what were my hopes and thoughts about the forthcoming year. I told him that there was no point asking me as I don't have 20/20 vision!
