Wasn’t one of the stands supposed to named be after Gary Lineker  

Can't see that happening now. Rumour has it that the relationship between the club and Lineker (certainly a few years ago) wasn't as cordial as it once was.

Rename the subs bench, the Conrad Logan seating.

Did a few commentaries for LCFC with Conrad during the title winning season.

At Spurs, the press box was low down by the tunnel, right behind the subs bench.

I made reference to our view and added: "You'll be used to this, Conrad..."

 

(He's a top bloke, he took it in the right spirit.)

I think they should spread 13k extra seats across the east and south stands! 45k capacity....Boom! Biggest ground in the midlands!Cant see why it can’t be done.Not sure how much more it would cost,but definitely worth thinking about imo.:fc::D

Anyone else considered that they're waiting to start work so that it's ready to open on the 20 year anniversary of when it was built in the first place?

I would love that. I think the club would probably rather do just the east stand first, though, if only to test the water.

 

If we're selling out a 40/42k stadium down the line, then I think the south stand would be expanded (I guess around an extra 6k seats - 46/48k total).

 

I'm really hoping for at least 1 seat more than Villa Park, as well. :fc:

Biggest stadium in the midlands on the whole would be pretty sexy.

It certainly would be.If we stay consistent near the top of the prem,I think they would have to expand the south stand.The demand would def be there.Im sure I’ve read somewhere that the total expansion of the KP could be 55k.But like Raw Dykes said 46/48k would be awesome!
We can all hope!:clap:

I agree. It's a big if, but if we can carry on competing for Europe for some time, then it's possible we'll be expanding the KP more than once.

 

I don't think we'll need anywhere near 50k any time soon! However, I think the required space is there. If expanding the east stand takes capacity to around 41k, then expanding the south or north stand would add around 6k seats. Filling the southeast corner, I guess, would add around another 5k. There's not as much room behind the north stand as the south, but there is some scope. 55k maxed out sounds about right. I'd love to see what that would look like.

Yep that’s interesting.I don’t know if they would do the north stand or not being near the road.But the rest would work though.would love to see a proper 3D design.soon as the training ground is done,it won’t be long before it’s announced.Roll on!:scarf:

Any idea what's soured the relationship at all?

I have a strong feeling that everyone is going to be surprised how quickly we, the punters, gobble up that extra capacity.

Anything to do with Ranieri-based tweets?

He's a fan at the end of the day, allowed an opinion. If the club looked at some of the cr4p posted on here, Lineker looks fairly rational

I think the club axed "The Lineker Suite" which didn't impress Gary and some comments he made about the club pre-title didn't endear him to the owners.

Not sure what came first but it was mentioned to me during the title season (by people I worked with there) that the relationship was "frosty"

They pretty much axed all nods to our history apart from a few photos to cover up the unfinished walls in the concourses.

Can we please change the thread title to, "Unbelievers Complaining We Shouldn't Expand Stadium"? Cos in the last half of this thread 90% of it is people saying it's a waste and people defending the ideal.

 

In the meantime, there's no actual progress.

 

However, I can't see why any real fan of the club wouldn't want this done. To my mind, if you don't believe in this, then you don't believe in Leicester City Football Club, which means you're not a fan. It's that simple.

Instead of standing, how about kneeling, it’s halfway there plus you won’t block the view from someone seated behind you. Safe kneeling.

Dependent on what's inside the National Grid building - it may mean they are having to relocate their infrastructure. They did have big refurbishment plans lined up for the Gasworks site. 

That building is nothing to do with the gas.
