Aha! The Hamstead & Highgate express repeated the story today (pretty well word for word the old article): Fury as golf and tennis club faces demolition 29 September 2006 BATTLE lines are being drawn over the imminent redevelopment of Regent's Park. The Friends of Regent's Park and Primrose Hill, as well as other organisations and members of the public, are gearing up to fight the Royal Parks over its controversial plans. A planning application for a £2million sporting complex is going in this week. A Goals Soccer Centre is the frontrunner to win the contract from Royal Parks, which will mean the introduction of a floodlit five-a-side soccer pitch. This would mean the end of the popular Golf and Tennis School, founded in 1906, which would be replaced by a building described as a "detention centre," which would spoil the atmosphere and wildlife. Objectors have vowed to do everything in their power to stop the bulldozers. Following a public meeting in the park's Danish church on Monday night (September 25), Friends of Regent's Park and Primrose Hill chairman Malcolm Kafetz said: "There will be an ugly, caged pitch with floodlights that will resemble a deportation centre. Two acres of wildlife habitat will be taken away. "There is unanimous opinion that this is completely unwanted. We will fight the planning application via every possible means." Manager of the Regent's Park Golf and Tennis School, Lilian Meadows, also said: "We are so angry. We have at least 3,000 members, and none of them want this football pitch." A spokesman for the Royal Parks said a final decision on who wins the contract for the sporting complex would be made on Friday. Depending on the outcome, either a soccer pitch would be the main attraction or the golf facilities and tennis courts. "There will inevitably be some unavoidable and limited impact on the environment during this project," he added. "But this will be counterbalanced by returning the golf and tennis school site to park land.
Saw coverage several months ago of strong local objections to that Regents Park proposal. (Locals concerned that change from genteel tennis courts to floodlit footy would attract much shouting..). Is planning decision known yet?
Am i right? Saw something about Goals opening in Regents Park! They seem t be opening sites everywhere!
Every stock is subject to market sentiment, though like you say if there is any indication that growth is slowing then these will drop without mercy. Take a look at CSR this week when it gave out a statement of slowing demand. Ouch! At the moment I can't see that happening because GOAL are in the relatively early stages of expansion with more sites coming on line. They have a sound business plan & good management with a successful track record. The only serious rival is Powerleague, but there's plenty of room in this market & GOAL are very picky about where they are building new sites. Five a side football is one of the fastest growing sports so I'd expect its public profile to increase not diminsh. During the world cup they televised some of the 'street football' world cup (five-a-side). Looks set to grow, at least in the short term.
vaind, its on a very high rating, with 8.3p EPS for the full year, thats still on a current year PER of times 29. Current year times 15 would be more stable, however, provided the buyers keep buying and people keep holding, there is nothing wrong with a times 29 rating, however it could make GOAL susceptible to a sizeable fall if market sentiment changes.
PP - Thanks for that! I note that some analysts have expectations of full year eps (average) at 8.3. Whats your take on it, is it over priced?
EPS was around 3p. This means full year EPS might be expected to be say 6p or 7p. Present GOAL price is 247p. This makes GOAL on a current year PER of say times 35 (Price to Earnings ratio), and so therefore its quite highly rated (high meaning that its over normal and could come down a bit)
PP - eps up by 70%, and I didnt follow the rest of your statement, can you clarify please?
EPS was quite low considering the PER it puts GOAL presently on to based on the present share price
...and the share price drops!
* Sales up 35% * EBITDA* up 56% * EBITA* up 59% * Profit before tax up 72% * Basic Earnings per share up 70% * Strong financial performance driven by like for like sales growth of 5% and new openings * Maiden interim ordinary dividend of 0.3p per share (goes XD on 27/9) "..and look forward to the remainder of 2006 and beyond with confidence and enthusiasm..."
thanks cupa , tick up before results here

excuse me for being thick but what is IFG please ?
GOAL was a re-iterated Recommendation in the Aug IFG.....
This comment from Ed Bowsher on the MotleyFool site today: Maynard Paton, editor of The Motley Fool's Champion Shares service, spotted one emerging market last year -- five-a-side football companies. Sadly, sporting facilities have slipped down the priority list for many local authorities, and that's left a gap for commercial operators. The commercial players can offer higher quality pitches, organise leagues, and even provide TV screens so you can watch the "highlights" of the game you've just played. But how can you invest in five-a-side? There are two listed companies in this area -- Goals Soccer Centres (LSE: GOAL), and Powerleague Group (LSE: PWR). Last year, Maynard had a close look at both of them and decided Goals was the better bet. Indeed, on October 12 he recommended it to Champion Shares subscribers at 150.5p. The shares are now trading at 215.5p, a superb 43% rise in just nine months! Maynard preferred Goals for three main reasons: - Goals' pitches were mostly of the modern, synthetic "rubber-crumb" variety whereas most of Powerleague's pitches need upgrading. - Goals had clear-cut expansion plans -- unlike Powerleague -- and the potential of its roll-out expansion appeared much greater than its then size. - Goals' management had previous experience in five a side football. After the recent rise in the share price, Maynard has moved his stance on Goals to a hold. But the share could still be a decent long-term performer.
Found this in local press today: ..PROPOSALS to replace tennis courts in Regent's Park with five-a-side football pitches.. The Royal Parks Association is currently in the final stages of a tender process to issue a new lease for the courts and should make a decision by the end of July. But the Friends of Regent's Park and Primrose Hill group believes a decision has already been taken to give the lease to Goals Soccer Centres plc which will build five-a-side football pitches.. ...A spokesman for the Royal Parks denied any deal had been finalised. "Tenders have been put out, and there are a series of bidders," the spokesman added. "No contracts have been signed, and a decision is yet to be made. End of July is only a week away
- me and my big mouth ;o/
Holding up not at all badly in such a grim market.
Just bought some myself.Was quite excited about it. It does look a good growth story and hope the world cup may have some stimulus. Hope Ive not bought at the peak. Chart looks a bit flat today though? At least its not going down!
bought in today - looks to be a good growth story which should only be enhanced by World Cup as that will generate more interest. hopefully no 'own goals' here!
is that the dead cat?!
Hi - yep, the Rooney foot factor kicked in yesterday - but this merely represents a good buying opportunity - Cheers, The Cat
The trend is up. Why worry about minor fluctuations?
