According to the PriceofFootball podcast, that I listened to yesterday, we are awaiting approval from Sadiq Khan, Mayor of London, and intend to start building next year.

I don't know if there are any other obstacles to overcome.

 


I am not a bot. No, seriously, I'm not.

I would have to see actual work starting before I have any belief this project is going anywhere.

 


Let's see SP and the board trying to line up for a piss in the AW toilets at half time before peddling the new stand. We're the Arthur over here and the facilities are a disgrace

Anyone planning a new stand is nuts. I mean well and truly bonkers.

What if stadiums naturally changed over time to introduce way more corporate style seating. Imagine a stadium that the first lower level was all corporate, pitch side bars, restaurants, lounges etc, then above that the season ticket holders and premium seats then higher up, the rest of us.

In no way am I saying I want this, but I can just imagine a club somewhere doing it...

I only say this because the mls have these cosy seats, usually 2, that are pretty much pitch side, like on the turf infront of the advertising and it's usually two rich foreign exchange students watching, eating popcorn... I know I know... and the walk way/tunnel is behind the goal and a car is on show to win... it's f***ing bizaare to menthe nfl do it too - but obviously that's the way it's heading out there, would it transcend?

The middle tier of the new stand is meant to include 2,500 corporate seats. The lower tier seats will probably be made up of existing season ticket holders.

If that's how they do it they may have to look at the plans again! Might need to make the lower tier a wee bit smaller after this current season ticket farce!

... it sometimes seems like every other club is happily redeveloping or having new stadia, Brentford being the latest, whilst we haven't moved forward since the mid 90s when the Holmesdale opened.

I have said it before and will say it again. This development will never happen.

Cost alone is madness. It is more than some clubs pay for a whole new ground. We clearly cannot afford this white elephant.

Our only option I think remains to look for a brownfield site to redevelop. Maybe out of town. Difficult I accept but if we take a longer view not impossible.

Never? Bold statement

Did you know? 95% of people are morons.

Knocking the main stand down for a year and rebuilding would be the best way.

I wonder how much of the delay is down to the council.
Ruskin Square took 20 years to get spades in the ground. Westfield has been talked about for at least a decade and will now never happen. I can imagine that Croydon are increadibly greedy with S106 agreements and very very slow to get anything done.

Until someone threatens to relocate outside the borough?

I think this is the only way forward. Of course many will be upset about leaving Selhurst, me included, but if we get a well designed new stadium, why not. The issue of where is another matter
