Stadium - All ifs, buts and maybes...

What I object to is the possibility that the 15000 seats will be executive seats

I’d expect the vast majority of additional seats to be regular seats, an extra 15,000 executive seats wouldn’t be filled. They have already discussed wanting to get as many “normal” supporters in as possible, so I don’t think you need to worry mate.

no pressure on the stadium to be amazing, but Spurs have really set the standard. 

Very impressive, but looks a little sterile. I guess that's to be expected though, just hope ours has a bit more character to it.

I agree mate, lots of nice touches in there, I hope we do too. 

The things Meis mentioned like the Leict latticework being used as the front of a long bar inside the stands, and 1878 wooden seats from the Bullens being used in a section would add to all that for me.

Aye. I've got faith in him, just getting a bit impatient :D

It seems they are using the council money from what Moshiri said...

"I have spent £250m to turn a museum into a competitive outfit, we will complete the stadium. We will raise £350m through the city, the naming rights will be some more. There is an equity gap of £100m. This club is sufficiently robust to see this project through. 

"If we want a big club we need a modern stadium."

Not sure which part of that quote makes you think we are borrowing from the council but if it’s the’through the city’ bit I think he’s referring to the business sector at her than the city off Liverpool

Didn’t think of it that way mate, think it could be either.

I forgot to say Dunc, after our chat about safe standing. I think it was Keith Harris mentioned we could gain 10,000 more seats from the standing, looks like you were right on that one.

That made me chuckle because that's the 10K "expansion" they mentioned in the original information release.

Nice politician move because that's not an expansion in the slightest.

I hope that’s tongue in cheek because that’s all the “expansion” was ever going to be. 

I’d be really disappointed if it is.

sorry I was delayed in Liverpool lol

anyway back to my point about the seats,  I am not worried so much as badly disappointed by the number of seats extra

if they wanted as many normal seats as possible they would not have gone for such a small new stadium.  small stadium =  small mentality = small ambition = small club mentality = small chance of success =  small chance of getting it filled due to cost of tickets
