  1. Again, not a quick, easy or cost effective way of securing the space needed. You also have many hurdles to jump before you can even get agreement to use this process
  2. How many houses are on Vere Road? Do you think the current owners of these will just roll over and sell them cheaply? The club would have to pay well over the odds to buy them, then demolish them all, then build something new. It would take years to sort out. Replacing the kop and west stands would be reasonably easy. But the fact theres a dual carriage way 6ft away from the rear of the structure of the kop in some areas is a limitation. DC will want the most cost effective and best value option. Unfortunately i cant see him being able to make redeveloping hillsborough stack up long term.
  3. At least 2 stands at Hillsborough need to be replaced to maximise any sort of income. The Kop and Leppings lane end are well past their sell by date. The north stand its self is ok but the facilities on the concourses are poor and the rear of the stand needs total redevelopment to improve this. Hillsborough school wont be going anywhere soon as its grade 2 listed. The houses on Vere Road will cost millions to buy up and the redevelop the area for what we wont. Unfortunatly i just cant see anything other than a new stadium being built assuming we become a stable premier league side.
  4. Moving the away fans to the end leppings lane end of the north stand is probably the easiest way of getting home fans behind both goals. Away fans Enter and exit from Leppings lane turnstiles. Fence off the concourse. SYP put their mobile steel barricades up for the end of the match. Home fans enter the north from penistone road existing turnstiles for top concourse, with new turnstiles to lower concourse in the car park next to the shop.
  5. Unfortunately this has no correlation to what does or doesnt happen at hillsborough. The people who are on the SAG in Sheffield will always have that day back in 1989 in their minds when providing the club with recommendations, despite supporters being absolved of any wrong doing. Can you imagine what would happen if anything untowards happened again at Hillsborough. Whether we as fans or the club like it or not, over cautious attitudes will always play a role because of past events.
  6. There's usually someone sat in my seat every game. I think because its one of the few on the South where you dont have to be a dwarf to be able to comfortably fit with the shocking leg room. The look of bewilderment when I ask people to move is strange though. I've only paid the best part of £600 for the ticket and I want to sit in the seat I've paid for please!
  7. The club has said before that the seats arent sold in the north stand because of overcrowding on the concourse and the fact that fans dont sit where there tickets are for. So more people in the nw end of the stand than seats.
  8. Hardly likely when at £40+ the home areas were pretty full amd the atmosphere was great.
  9. Where does he have to go?
  10. Haha - cheers! Prices have gone gone up again, but still works out at £31 for me and the young in and I'm happy to pay that.
  11. Renewed. Again. Hopefully for a campaign in the premiership!
  12. I was sat next to him at the match yesterday on the south. All he'd say about when he'd be back is "soon".
  13. It was the fans who needed to use their brain cells. nupties throwing the ball back on the pitch despite the ball boy (s) wearing bright orange coats saying pass me the ball.
  14. Pretty sure the capacity of the south stand at Hillsborough is larger than the whole "New York" stadium... i also don't remember my view being To bad or not being able to have a pee in an actual toilet at the ground either.
  15. Someone has to want to buy them. That's the biggest problem I think we have.
