Think the kop is way too tight too and the space between the turnstiles and the back of the stand is just wasted. Be good if they could build to the road and utilise the space properly with proper concourses etc and put in new turnstiles too.

Why not build bridge concourse right across Penistone Road

Did the stadium tour last year, someone asked the question and we were told DC was considering two sites, one in Attercliffe and another between J34 and J35 of the M1. 

 

Possibly this site just off Wooley Wood?

Made these years ago. The height is incredible too.

Idea was to build onto the Wednesdayite car park too but don't think we can now:

South stand should be knocked down and re-built. Solve many issues.

Cause a few as well !

  • Players and officials entrance.
  • the Offices.
  • The board room.
  • Exec dinning room.
  • The boxes.
  • The revenue streams.
  • TV gantry.
  • Changing and bathing.

I think there's loads of room to extend the concourses on the North, Kop and Away end.

 

Plenty of room.

 

 

50 percent walk? I can't believe that.

 

Said it loads but Neepsend is the perfect location.

 

Particularly if the rail line between Sheffield and Chap (via Herries Road and Kelham opens)

This would be ideal if we had to move.

Still close enough to Hillsborough to feel like 'home' but also right in the heart of the most up and coming part of the city.

Would attract plenty of new supporters too with the area constantly developing.

Also, loads of brilliant pubs within walking distance.

Buy the land now before it gets snapped up, DC!!

Think that is the old Arthur Lee's steelworks site. Would have to be a substantial improvement in the access roads to the M1 but does have the train line running by from Sheffield to Barnsley via Chap.

 

We could kick toward the gas holder end first half and the crane end the 2nd

You were actually told that? That must mean it's common knowledge around the club that the plan is to move.

The Hitcat Hippodrome. The seats would slowly revolve, returning you to your original position 90 minutes later. That way, you get to watch the match from every angle. The Hitcat Hippodrome, where dreams are made and made are dreams.

Yes that's what we were told. We were on the subject of ground improvements which would be needed immediately should we get promoted which apparently include a new tunnel (current one too narrow for both teams to walk on together as per Premier League rules) and removing rows from grandstand for more media space.

It would also have the effect of making the teams play in the same direction, relative to you, in both halves.
