Nope. Just checked , v Liverpool in 69/70

This sounds like it! Thanks.

Was going to say Liverpool, Cup match 5th round replay, but couldn't be sure. Programme says Wednesday 11th Feb. 

Tickets 8 shillings (10 days before we went decimal) or 40p.

Nasty feeling we lost?

I’m hoping rather than just 1 huge stand on the east stand, they will increase both the north and south stand and be similar to old Trafford, with just 1 of the 3 sides noticeably smaller. It’ll look so odd with 1 huge stand 😂.

Think it would look great if the north and south were added onto, or at least like a double decker kop end as well as the east stand.

If the East stand is knocked down and replaced the 9k stand with a maybe 20k 2 tier stand and the south stand also gets a double tiered kop end , that would look incredible and could get it up to 48k without making it lopsided.

I think realistically, if we're increasing to 48k, it has to include expanding 1 or both ends in addition to the east stand.

It'll stay the same. They'll build up behind the stand then eventually start building back down. Taking the roof off and attaching the new roof will be the last phase of construction.

That looks pretty good apart from the fact it doesn’t cover the two smaller stands (hopefully it covers them if/when they get expanded). Also if the east stand is the only one getting additional seats then I’d be gobsmacked if that adds 16,000.
