Recommended Posts

Well if the original plans and rumours are correct you wont see much of them. 

 

Think along the lines of Manchester City new away end. Cutting them into two tiers will stop any atmosphere they try to get going. 

Really hope this is true. It'll be suggested again at the consultation meetings.

I sincerely hope this sports brand agency commissioned to come up with the stadium strategy will come up with better than 'stick a tier on top the east stand like Cardiff did'

 

I'd prefer a year out at the Ricoh and see all three sides rebuilt. I just don't see Susan Whelan and Top doing stuff in the quick and on the cheap. It's not their MO

Whatever they do,it’s got to look like it was built that way from the start.Not just stuck on like you said.I thought they might have upped capacity to about 45k and evened it out between the east stand and the kop end.Sloping down to meet the west stand and north stand respectively.:D

It might be Susan Welan's MO to be slow perhaps but you cant say that about top at all, especially about infrastructure projects. He got the planning approval and he's bang on to finish the training ground from planning approval to completion in 18 months. If you replicate that timeline with the stadium then you should be looking at 2 years completion from the summer.

Yeah I get that but what I meant is if they swap Tv camera around to west stand then it would be weird. Away end opposite , kop to the right of camera etc. Would be weird. Has there been any other stadium where this has happened? 

It was that way around at Filbert St and I've never got used to the change at KP

Can’t for a minute see Top wanting to play anywhere but the KP should we get CL football. I think he’d rather build a new stadium (maybe exaggerating a bit there but the family don’t do things by halves).

The TV platform has nothing to do with the expansion but there will be news soon and construction will start asap after planning is granted. Just less than VP capacity

Always thought valley parade looks massive for its capacity, looks like a mini old Trafford/Celtic park

Them neither. Don’t mind bees

Brentford would be even more impractical.

Does anybody know if there are any other stands that can have an  increase capacity?

 

obviously not taking into account, safe standing.

 

i ask, as if the east stand is the only one, our attendance will then be capped at whatever the expansion brings in.

 

unless they knock down a stand...

What a Kop though. Probably in my top two in the country along with Prenton Park.

Everything other than the west stand can be expanded.

I thought it was just the Main Stand they cannot expand upon.

 

How long do planning applications usually take?
