    I have today asked Steve if he will do a question and answer session for this board in the coming week and he has kindly agreed.

    questions are to be posted in this thread.

    Can i ask that we dont post silly or controversial questions that we know in reality he cant answer.
    steve has asked me to pick the relevant questions from the thread and then i will post his responses.

    with regards to questions steve still has a lot to do with the day to day running of the club and attends lots of meetings on their behalf as you saw with collecting the premier league certificate.
    he runs the house of sports projects with Tan as a partner and he is also heavily involved in llanrumney hall as another local project.
    he has also just spent a week on tans yacht in malaysia some business some pleasure so thats another topic along with the development of the ground if anyone is struggling for something to think of

    DEADLINE FOR QUESTIONS IS 10PM WEDNESDAY 11th

    thanks in advance for your questions

    Where do you see the youth academy competing in comparison to our league rivals?Where do you see it in 2-3 years time?

    Can you first thank him for his work and then ask him about the academy and the youth teams please Steve and why the club feel it is that we haven't had a player develop through there to the first team regular squad in such a long time. and have they got any plans to try and remedy this. Thanks.

    Brilliant idea this Steve. I'll kick off with a fairly easy one.

    As a director of the club, does he get to enjoy watching games as a "fan" or is it work that he enjoys?

    Good Afternoon Mr Borley ,
    having personally been a major factor in keeping the club going
    for many many years , it must be a huge relief for yourself
    that things are going the right way ,
    does this promotion feel better than our previous promotion
    on a personal level

    regards , Phil

    Guys, Steve is doing this board and all of us a massive favour here, and it's not fair to ask him to wade through silly questions, so please, just for once, can we keep the questions sensible like he asked in his OP?

    I don't want to have to delete stuff.

    Thanks

    What are the plans going forward for academy / youth football at Cardiff City, generally and do the club have a long-term plan with regards to Craig Bellamy specifically?

    Have I missed something here? Nothing bad above tbh?

    Personally don't have anything to ask, I'd imagine anything I want to know will be covered.

    Are the club planning any more developments on the ground in the future?
    The original planning made it possible to expand around the ground, something to do with the concourse areas being large enough to put further tiers above what we already have?

    thats a good question fella. i wonder if we stayed up for a couple of years if we would extend some of the other stands. would also be better for the welsh games as well

    Cheers Steve, I remember seeing plans years ago on one of the boards, not sure if they are still available?

    Steve.

    I coach mini football in Cardiff and it’s always disappointed me that very often the parents (many often being Liverpool / Man Utd fans) and therefore their kids are often completely unaware of upcoming City matches.

    In the last two years I have, through sheer pester power, encouraged parents to attend, often buying and giving away tickets when we’ve had deals on cup games etc, and as a result two of them, along with their kids are now season ticket holders.

    Is it possible that the club could send players out to youth matches / training sessions perhaps giving away a few free tickets etc to increase awareness of the club among young footballers in the City?
    I’d love CCFC to be like Newcastle where everyone supports their club, but you’ve got to get them hooked early.

    Mr. Borley, in all your years at the club, with the exception of the 2 premier league promotions, what has been your favourite season and your all time favourite player?
