    This loan

    I thought the loan was arranged while Vichai was still alive? All the recent Premier League infrastructure projects have been financed by loans, so we shouldn't expect Leicester City to be any different. The good thing about this arrangement is that we will have paid for everything within a couple of years.

    Stadium Expansion

    In the plan I saw, the roof is blue with a white lattice effect. It also slopes down toward the pitch and has a much bigger concourse than portrayed in the mock-ups. Also the concourses for the North and South stands will be further out.
  3. I would like to go in the draw please.

    Stadium Expansion Plan Meeting

    I suspect the original plans will be changed now. The helicopter tragedy happened at the site of the planned hotel. Also the East Stand will most likely be renamed after Khun Vichai. Khun Top may want something even more spectacular as a result. Especially as the new stand will extend to within a few yards of where his father passed away.

    Stadium Expansion Plan Meeting

    From what I saw, the E.ON building remains for now.

    Maybe... Maybe some other things as well. The roof on the extension is top drawer as well. Instantly recognisable.

    Stadium Expansion Plan Meeting

    Let's just say, there have been some excellent recent guesses...

    Stadium Expansion Plan Meeting

    It looks nothing like the Cardiff expansion, or the SOL. Have a look on the web at some other buildings that King Power have commissioned. There are some clues out there...

    Stadium Expansion Plan Meeting

    I think it is common knowledge that we are likely to expand to between 40,000 and 42,000.

    Stadium Expansion Plan Meeting

    Yes there were full artists impressions. Would have taken a shot on my phone, but that wasn't allowed. Personally, I was very surprised by the stadium concept. It is iconic looking. There are two new facilities (other than the expansion) that I liked a lot. Very excited about them. The consultation was an opportunity to let the club know what fans like, don't like and to suggest any fresh ideas. We were told that there would be no official representation from the club at these meetings, so that fans could be completely honest in their opinions. There wasn't anyone in the room particularly animated about safe-standing. It was only briefly mentioned. I myself don't really have strong views on it. The atmosphere is obviously important to the club. You will see that when the designs become public, in terms of how the seating is configured and the shape of the roof. Most of the discussion about atmosphere revolved around the lack of a single singing area and there was a hope expressed that the capacity increase, could also see a concerted effort from the club to create a designated area for signing etc. If you've got an invite and strong views; I urge you to attend.

    Stadium Expansion Plan Meeting

    I was amazed that 12 people were invited last night and only six turned up. Apparently the full planning application will be ready by January 2019 and they hope to start building by May 2019. The stadium will remain open, while construction takes place. We are not just getting a stadium expansion. There will be other facilties, right up to Aylestone Road. That isn't new news though. There have already been announcements in the press about purchasing over 6 acres of land and consultation with the City Council, about facilties that Leicester needs. The atmosphere at the stadium was discussed, along with safe-standing and many other things.

    I went to the one last night, but don't want to spoil it for anyone. We were also asked not to discuss the designs and plans in public. Wait until you see the new stadium concept and other new facilties. Amazing...

    24hr in Leicester

    Every city in the UK has rough edges. Leicester is no different. Though if you know the city well, it has some very attractive areas. For a curry, I'd recommend Shivalli on Welford Road as it isn't too far from the stadium. You are also close to the city centre for any other things you may like to do. There are loads of great museums, bars, cafes, shops etc. in central Leicester. Perhaps the main thing that is missing is family leisure places. The only part of the city centre which isn't nice is the northern section around Belgrave Gate and St Matthew's.
  15. 1. Indoor Arena 2. Railway station. Trains can reverse to overcome the south only alignment. 3. Statue outside new museum
