Craig 6051 Posted June 29, 2022 Share Posted June 29, 2022 Which is why I said yesterday that if we were to do it, it'd have to be done carefully so as to retain the character of the stadium. Way too many of the new ones are soulless. I don't think it's absurd or distasteful at all, I think it's about being realistic. The demands right now exceed the capacity of the current stadium by quite some margin, and we haven't even really started on this journey yet. To expand the Gallowgate to mirror that of the Leazes / Milburn might satisfy that additional demand, just! But it won't do so for very long so a false economy in my opinion. The East Stand cannot be further developed on than it already is - current planning laws wouldn't permit the construction of the current stand to be honest, and the Leazes / Milburn have gone back as far & high as is reasonable to consider. Knocking it all down and rebuilding it on the same footprint wouldn't give us a viable footing to increase the numbers either in my view. As much as I wish it wasn't, our only viable option IMO is to consider a new location. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
