Russian we spoke to in St P. said Gazprom pulled out all the money for it, the federal government didn't step in and now the city council is having to fund it. Money they should be spending on maintaining a beautiful city.

Their current stadium is massively naff mind.

Last season's capacity was 47,670 (they've lost 1,000 or so this season because of the work), their average over the season was 47,080. The missing 600 could probably be accounted for with away fans/segregation.

They're only doing the expansion one stand at a time, the one they're doing over the course of this season is already full with season ticket applications.  The could go bigger than 62,000 and fill it

That'll be number of tickets sold/given away as corporate freebies, not the attendance. Someone needs to let the big clubs know they aren't one and the same.

Whether that's true or not, like I said, the new stand is sold out before it's even built.  In the 2/3 years it'll be before the 2nd one is expanded, they'll have even more fans/glory hunters on board and easily be able to fill that too.

Their cheap as f*** (in football terms for a club of that size) prices for season tickets also help

My favourite of the newer stadiums is Boavista's Estadio do Bessa in Porto. Steep stands with the upper tier hanging over the lower (all seats close to the pitch) & no corners which often makes a ground into a boring bowl.

I always liked the look of Kenilworth Road when Luton were in the top flight, i would have loved to have gone to an away game there. Mind i remember Millwall fans smashing it up and I'm fairly sure they banned away fans in the 80's.

When there with Gateshead a few years back there was a wifey having a shower in her bathroom at half-time, unique half-time entertainment.

The little side stand has an alleyway behind that runs between it and the houses & the locals nickname it dogs s*** alley, it's like an obstacle course. Also a couple of years back when queuing up to go in there was some bloke in that house to the right of the turnstile sitting on his door step cutting his toenails, it sort of summed the place up.

To give him his due - and this is five or six years ago when he still cared - Lerner was apparently livid when he read about what had been done. He fished out a lot of the original features in storage from the old stand (stuff like claret and blue stained glass windows, plus old fixtures and fittings) and had them installed in the new Trinity Road stand.

He also, and this is impressive and just shows what a change he has undergone, when he read about the mosaics on the old stand, tracked down the Italian company who made the original, found out that the main bloke there's great grandson was still running the family business, and employed them to recreate (reinterpret) the mosaics on the back of the Holte End:

(http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2009/02/20/article-0-0398A296000005DC-959_468x289.jpg)

He also spent £4m renovating the Holte pub at the back of the Holte End. It's a lovely Jacobean imitation (ie of the stately home the other side of the park next to the ground) building which at the start of the 1900s was also used to house some of the players in the boarding rooms upstairs. Under Ellis it was derelict, boarded up and falling down for years.

Lerner turned it into this:

(http://www.groupdyer.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2047_1.jpg)

When I remind myself of things like that, Lerner's loss of interest looks even more stark.

Too right.

This is Chamberlain Square in Birmingham. On the left is the Council House, a grade II* listed building. On the right is the Town Hall, a grade 1 listed building, built in the mid nineteenth century where everyone from Charles Dickens to Churchill spoke, where bands like Black Sabbath played some of their early gigs.

What is there now, built in the mid 1970s:

Truly revolting. Being demolished at the end of the year, thank f***. John Madin built loads of this brutalist s*** over Birmingham and he outlived almost every one of them. I for one would gladly push the plunger on this one.

I appreciate that lots of the post war buildings went up due to the damage the Luftwaffe did, but when I hear London luvvies getting themselves all wound up about that horrible mess getting demolished, i want to puke. It is also right in the middle of the city centre, dividing it in two.

The moaners are probably the same people who, for decades, sneered at that building.

Oh well, sorry, I've gone off topic.

What I would say is that sometimes it's impossible and to the detriment of an area. The Odeon building in Newcastle is the perfect example. It's listed so can't be torn down, but it's irreparable, completely gutted inside and riddled with asbestos so it can't be renovated. So it's condemned to just sitting there doing nothing. It's a shame because if it could be renovated, it would be a beautiful building.

Over here in the US most major (smart) cities have historic boards who protect these and districts greatly. If you can't build within original buildings and retrofit - then you have to build to spec to make it look as authentic as ever. Many of my company's hotels are located in these districts.

Besides that gray brutalist s***, that Brum square looks pretty damn nice. Reminds me I really have to visit England outside of London, sometime.

Trying to keep it on-topic, I always loved the contrast La Masía makes with the stadium (and the surrounding area). a 300 year-old farmhouse in the middle of the bustling city:

There's been a few done in Newcastle-Gateshead (Westgate road building and Get-Carter car park both knocked down) but money is tight nowadays.  The rules are stupid, the old odeon is a listed building and in a prime spot for a massive redevelopment and it's been sitting derelict for 10 years now.

When I was having a look around at the stadiums in England - it was quite cool seeing how awesomely positioned in city-centre our ground is. f*** sake, if someone like John Henry or Mansour owned us? The entire area around it would have been transformed as much as they could - hotels, shopping, Newcastle United superstore, etc. The location of St James' Park in city centre would have a developer's mouth watering imo.

The problem is it's severely restricted by the listed Halls of Residence behind the East Stand which is why that side has never been developed.  Barring extending the Gallowgate (which isn't very cost-effective), St James' is at full capacity.

The one good thing with England missing out on 2018 was it stopped Forest from building a new stadium in Clifton which is a horrible area. There was talk last year that Forest might build one on a brownfield site closer to the City Centre. It would be on London Road which is the road that you see there (includes the bridge). Opposite Hooters so it would only be a 5-6 minute walk from the train station.

Mostly Baseball, but kind of an interesting series of stadiums in Atlanta.

'96 Olympic Stadium in Atlanta built just south of the Atlanta Fulton County stadium.  Everyone thought the Olympic Stadium was very strange at the time due to its really odd shape.
Atlanta Fulton County Stadium was part of the plague of 60s round all purpose stadiums.   Horrible for pretty much everything.  I saw the Chiefs play here a long time ago in the NASL.

(http://blu.stb.s-msn.com/i/8D/9211D16DF44F1741EF322C57E2.jpg)


Then the Olympic Stadium was converted for the Braves - Turner Field, the TED.  Really a very nice place to watch baseball.

Old Fulton county stadium ballground outline is now in the Turner Field parking lot.  They left the fence section where Hank Aaron set the home run record in '74.

When I'm done with Australia I'm going on a football tour of Europe. I'm gonna handpick 6 or 7 matches across the continent and use them as a dot-to-dot. Gonna try and make each fixture diverse from one another, in terms of the club/the area/the culture. That one is called the Pancho Arena and is home to Videoton FC's youth team. It looks absolutely awesome - it's gone straight in the shortlist.

I love that stadium, so classy with the brick.

If they knocked Villa Park down and built it again, I'd love them to do it in that style. Brilliant, easily my favourite on this thread.

The red-brown brick follows the building style of the area. I love when a stadium is able to follow the tradition of the town while still standing out architecturally. I like that stadium a lot, really.

I love Seattle's stadium, look at the crowd in that photo, do they really fill out for real football games ? The crowd there in seattle for the handoval games are really passionate, really tough place to go for opposition teams.

For most games they fill the lower half of the stadium, plus the first 10-15 rows of the upper half. So usually somewhere around 38,000 - 42,000 people. But for the big games against rivals like Vancouver, Portland and LA Galaxy, as well as friendlies like the recent game with Tottenham, they fill it up to capacity, which is around 66,000.

I always thought Cardiff arms park was very similar to Old Trafford before OT was expanded. Three sided with a terrace at one end, I believe standing in the lower part seated on the upper. Both cracking grounds 20+ years ago but the old Stretford End shaded it, I loved the huge Wonderfuel Gas advert on the roof.v

When I turned up in Newcastle as a student in 1986, I'd never been there before - other than for an open day at the Poly - and had no idea where the ground was.

One thing that struck me was that back then, it was a horrible, dated mess. I'd never been to a ground open at both ends in the first division before, and the main stand looked like it had been built 100 years previously and never cleaned. It had the feel of an athletics stadium.

If you look at what it became over a couple of decades, you would never, ever have predicted that at the time. I know you have become known for poor leadership in recent years, but at some point, someone got things consistently right to transition the ground from what it was then to what it is now in such a short period of time.

I went to quite a few matches in my time there, and the thing that always struck me as unique was the location in the city centre. I remember walking around doing a bit of shopping on a Saturday afternoon and hearing a roar when you'd scored, and it struck me as surreal - I was used to a city where all three grounds were a few miles out of the city centre.

I also liked the fact you'd see people converging on the city centre for a game. Carrying fanzines, or programs, the pubs we'd drink in as students full of people going to the game.

I think that city centre location and the fact it is in a one-club city add so much. This was the late 1980s. In Birmingham, you'd probably not wear any colours if you were going to the city centre for drinks before a match, as there would be too much chance of aggro, so it was strange for me to experience living in a place where this didn't happen.

It was mis-management that saw the stadium in that state in the 80s brummie, after the leazes was pulled down, half rebuilt, then left after problems with the builders. but your points about it then are pretty accurate, the west stand was shocking then.

I would like to see a game. We drove about 3am outside River Plates stadium just to see it and flew over it in the plane. I had heard about the team and I'd like to see more of the city. Unfortunately/fortunately I have quite a lot to do in Curitiba with football coaching until I leave in December. I will try my best, which team do you recommend?

River are most accessible but Boca are the one you want to go. About 75% of the Argentine Primera teams are based within 10-15miles of the city centre so you can't go wrong.

These new stadiums are spectacular, but for me you can't beat the old school stadiums. Like the old San Memes- the new one is nice looking, but games imo Bilbao home matches are almost boring to watch now when they're at home- there's no real character about the place.

Just like places like Leicester City's old Filbert Street compared to their new bowl, or what will be West Ham's new home in the Olympic Stadium compared to Upton Park of now. I just don't like it when clubs move stadiums without there being a legitimate reason. 'Financial decisions' don't wash with me.

It'll move out under the kop end. The NFL pitch is in place permanently I think, with the football one moving out on top of it. They'll use artificial lights while it's underground

Edit: ahh I see, so they're gonna build a huge hole in the ground under what will become a huge office or something? Why don't they just lay astroturf down as and when needed? Or you know, play NFL on grass?

That picture only shows a cross section of the stand behind the goal. In reality the cavity would need to around 70m wide. So you'd have the entire weight of the stadium, plus 17,000 people jumping up and down, plus the weight of car park area outside... nah.

The NFL deal is signed, with the confirmation of a 2nd playing surface to play their games on. These plans will have been sieved through meticulously and are probably watertight. There's no real reason why a) it cant be done, or b) it won't be done. They'll be submitted in the next couple of weeks I think.

I hope it does get built, it just seems like a ridiculous amount of money to spend when you don't have too. The grass pitch will spend about 1 week out of 52 in that big hole in the ground, and building it will be more cost effective than laying a temporary surface?

We can all have a good laugh when the weight of 17,000 NFL fans causes the supports to buckle, the "kop" to drop three feet in the middle trapping the grass pitch forever. :lol:

The initial deal is 2 games a year but yeah, can see that rising to 4-8 then there being an actual NFL team in London, using White Hart Lane as their home. Otherwise, like you said, it is completely pointless really.  With a quick google I find an article from NFL.com last year which states "The way Mark Waller sees it, the NFL isn't just weighing putting a team in London anymore -- the plan is already in motion." so.. yeah

I dont think your concerns about the weight of the stadium on the "hole" are a real problem :lol: Other stadia with retractable pitches have a same "hole" under their stand too

They'll need to move as it's being built on the site where the current stadium is.  I think they want Wembley, but Chelsea want Wembley for the 17/18 season as well. Chelsea have more money, so they'll probably get it. Spurs will end up in Milton Keynes.  Also Spurs are taking Wembley's NFL games off them, they'd probably be told to get f***ed :lol:

In the Veltins Arena Schalke, the opposite side to the side where the pitch exits has 16,000 seats apparently. I can't find figures for the actual stand, but the stadium is generally symmetrical all the way around, so it's probably close to the there.  I assume the pitch will go in what is essentially a giant metal/concrete box under the stand/ground

It's a huge span, with no support columns (unless the pitch somehow retracts in strips), needing to support a f***-ton of weight. I can't get my head around how it could be technically possible either.

I'm sure smarter people than me have done the sums. But if you look at the current stadia to do this, schalke's stadium has less than 17,000 seats and no car park behind the goal. The one in Arizona has next to f*** built over that end of the stadium. Spurs are gonna put 17,000 seats and an office block over the hole. 

Engineers perhaps?

Aye, their new stand extension will be complete come the start of the season

(http://i.imgur.com/q1muS28.png)

They've added 3 rows to the front of each stand too (you can see the work beginning on the bottom of the pic) for another couple of thousand

Then in 16/17, West Ham move in to the olympic stadium, and the Anfield expansion will be finished. Chelsea and Spurs a couple seasons after that

Other places that have retractable pitches like Schalke and the one in Arizona have / need a massive open area outside, the size of football pitch. :lol: Maybe spurs are gonna roll theirs up like a big green bog roll?

Edit: ahh I see, so they're gonna build a huge hole in the ground under what will become a huge office or something? Why don't they just lay astroturf down as and when needed? Or you know, play NFL on grass?
Sapporro I think it was in Japan where England beat Argentina had a pitch on wheels that was wheeled in for the match and back outside afterwards onto a big open area.

Post by: henke on Wednesday 8 July 2015, 07:30:50 PM
Saporro was kind of like Arizona. The idea of a pitch that moves, be it on rails or custard, is that it will have to move underneath another structure - the stadium. At saporro the whole stadium was relatively small, maybe 30,000 seats. So the end that the pitch moved under was probably 6,000. And if you look at aerial shots there's no car park or other s*** at that end of the ground.

At Spurs one end of the stadium is supported either end of a ~65m hole in the ground, with 17,000 seats above at one end side and a 20 storey office at the other. It's a massive project.

On the new WHL issue, I've done some digging on the Schalke way of doing it, found this video:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hl6tpWt-yZo

They're stood in the gap where the pitch slides out, and at 4:17 you see the beams come down and plant to the floor.  There's many of them, and they stabilize and strengthen the stand when the crowd are in the stand. Obviously they don't need to be down when the stand is empty, which enables the pitch to slide out/in.  I assume Spurs will be using the same type of system, just.. underground

As for the mighty Spurs; apparently we're up for Wembley but Chelsea offered more cash. Rumour is that we now need two years somewhere else, and that's looking more and more like MK Dons. We were also rumored to be trolling West Ham by making them share with us.

19 grass, 13 Fieldturf.

It's still an athletics stadium though. So the incline will be less and the seats on average much further away from the field. And the upper bowl wont move an inch so the closest seat there will be probably 60 to 70 yards from the touchline.

Still disagree. You've compared the best view at the Olympic (touchline) with the worst at SJP (behind goal). Draw a line to the upper bowl behind the goal at the Olympic. If you're sat there you might as well listen to the game on the radio.

The bits in blue won't be used in football mode because they're outside the "190m to the opposite corner of the pitch" regulation

As you see it shows that to the front row behind the goal (behind the screen) it's 75m. 50m to the seats along the side of the pitch
Title: Re: Stadium Pron - For All Your Stadium Needs
Post by: henke on Friday 17 July 2015, 10:22:34 PM
Good effort. I wasn't aware they were planning on not using much of the upper bowl but it stands to reason as it's so far away.

As you point out though, the front row behind the goal is 20m from the goal line. And the incline of the stand is lower than at a "football" stadium, so for every row you go back you're further away.

There's a reason Juve hated the Delli Alpi, it was s*** in every way. And ill bet you anything you want, west ham fans will wish they'd stayed put before the first seasons over.

Yeah, before it was built everyone knew it would be used as a football stadium, they should have just accepted that fact in the bidding for the Olympic Games and made a stadium fit for football from the off. Now the stadium is just a half arsed mess that won't be fit for purpose. I would suspect that over the years each stand will be altered one by one to make it better for football.

I have been to the stadium and was on one of the seats lower down, even those seats will be terrible viewing for football, so god knows how the ones towards the top will be like.

Bleh, it's so far away from the pitch though. I wonder what the average West Ham ST holder makes of it all; I'd be pretty gutted about the whole thing I think.

There's come crazy bad views throughout the Premier League though, isn't there? Seem to recall a photograph from the top of the Kop at Liverpool; the only visible section is about the last quarter of the pitch.

Anyone know how's West Hams support is feeling about the move?

I've been following the build on a couple of their forums and they're all super excited and looking forward to it.  A load of them went to the running even tthat was there today (hence the pics) and they're loving it

Stuff like this is the general consensus it seems:

Quote
Just back from the Newham run at the OS, I have been a firm critic of the move since it was announced, and having been to the Olympics was not convinced it would Make a football stadium, but having been today I must say it was impressive, and from the different places I sat I think the upper tier seats have the better views, I sat in the lower tier seats but the rake of the seats were to low for my liking, as for the upper tier I sat in the worst seat behind the goal in the upper tier and for the price they will be charging it's acceptable, I was surprised that the floodlights or roof didn't obscure any of the stadium from up there.The roof and floodlights are impressive, as for the concourses plenty of room and facilities, although the gents toilets did seem a bit on the small side. Overall I thought with a full house and the lower tier seating addressed it will be a good home for many fans, and a cheap home for many others with not as bad views as first feared, I must say I did enjoy my visit today.

Quote
The bottom line is that its not as 'cosy' as the Boleyn and you won't be as close to the pitch, but you will be a lot closer in the so called 'cheap' seats than you may have thought when the seats go forward. Really was surprised how close the pitch was and will be even closer when the seats move forward.

Lot of em saying the pics dont do it justice and it is a lot closer than it looks (like M4 said above to be fair)

Nice shot from earlier. They got the 2 biggest cranes in the UK for the lift, only 2 other lifts like this have been done before (Wembley arch and Wimbledon).  650 tonnes of steel up and over the new (and existing) stand like it's nothing.  Hope Gerrard isnt driving the cranes

Liverpool are redeveloping the stadium as part of a £260m scheme for the whole Anfield area. The second phase of the expansion involves the Anfield Road end expanding by a further 4,800 seats to take the ground capacity to just below 60,000 ready for the 2016-17 season.

It's not, it'd be wasting money. Money which right now needs to go towards the team, which in turn will mean full crowds and then the need to expand. No point in being like the mackems with a stadium you can only 70% fill

Our crowds are on the decline. Presently we have 52,000 seats to fill and approximately 25,000 season ticket holders. I'd be amazed if we get more than 2 or 3 50k crowds next season. Couldn't even get 50,000 in against Man Utd last season due to their ridiculous ticketing policy. Probably only the mackems and Villa will have a lower occupancy % than us in 15/16.

Disagree though, we could pack the place if any of the owner, staff or players gave a s***. When we were competing back in the day it was heaving and hard to get tickets. A brilliant time when KK was first here as manager and we could have gone on from that; I wouldn't be surprised if we could get 100,000 in when you add gloryhunters. :lol: I'm in hundreds of billions territory here.

One thing I'd like to see at SJP, and a possible way forward for us is safe standing.

Maybe bring in a few extra quid but improve the atmosphere immensely.

Thanks mate, Geordie Ridley actually.

It was nigh on impossible to get tickets in the Keegan era (although someone I used to sit next to claimed he'd managed to get to every home match in 95-96 despite not having a season ticket), but when we expanded to 52,000 there were tickets unsold for most matches, even when we were a top 3 side.

Yes and no. We're it's already in use I think it increases your capacity by something like 1.7 standing to 1 seat. Celtic are gonna trial it in the uk and initially at least it'll be 1:1.

Not even that, we are a Premier League team, we are filthy rich in our own right. If Shepard and co could expand SJP to what it is today 15 years ago, then we should be more than capable of finishing the expansion off and refurbishing it.

A bigger capacity would be taken up by increase away support (at least for big teams with a big away following), cheap tickets, and even community tickets.

Absolutely but not to be confused with the raft of cheap, horrible, plastic student accommodation cropping up all over the city (and the other side of SJP!).

It's a constraint to further expansion but just adds to the character of the ground being adjacent to such a magnificent example of Georgian architecture which is Grade I listed.

There are right to light laws though. Expanding the east stand = making it higher = blocking light to the building behind, which isnt allowed. IIRC the only way to expand the east stand would be move the listed building to another site and rebuild it, brick by brick

The stadium doesn't need extending at all, imo. It's a fabulous stadium that has been totally bastardised by all the advertising, and needs a wedge spent on being spruced-up. It also needs to host some good football for a change - it can generate noise no problem.

It's part of the soul of the club.

Hey fair play lads. If things had gone the way we wanted twenty years ago and we were now challenging every year I'd prefer to see the east stand expanded. But as we're currently crap then it's irrelevant really.

It's just never going to happen though. Leazes Terrace is a building of national significance, realistically any further extension of that stand would harm the building either in terms of the impact on its setting or people living there.

Even if listed building consent and planning permission were granted to move Leazes Terrace, which is doubtful, the cost would be astronomical! It would probably be a lot cheaper to build a temporary stadium somewhere else, knock down St. James's rebuild it further to the west. Neither option would be worth the cost for 5-10,000 more seats.

The only realistic option would be the Gallowgate end, if we ever have enough ambition again to need the extra seats.

Do you guys really value the Georgian architecture? Or would you rather see SJP expanded?

I don't think anybodys too arsed about that row of houses.

Agreed entirely, it adds to the charm of St. James' Park. Location wise it is by far the best stadium in the country.

I'm bothered about the houses, it even still bothers me that the back of the east stand looks so awful and out of place.
With the possibility of the Gallowayte increasing capacity to 60k-62k, then the houses aren't any real problem with our ground, in fact keeping the east stand small adds character to the stadium.

This is the point really. Putting another tier on the East stand would actually improve that area dramatically. The stand could be moved out to the edge of the paved area with access underneath like the Leazes and Milburn stands. A mirrored glass fascia would look a million times better than the concrete monstrosity there now and would reflect light onto Leazes terrace.

Even the most reactionary town planner should be able to see the sense in something like this. I suppose space would limit it to something the size of the 3rd tier at Old Trafford though so dont know how many seats that would add.

Success on the pitch must come first though and we all know how likely that is.

I doubt it would be technically possible to go straight up with another tier.

Even if an upper tier were directly above the first the support structure for the upper tier would need to be behind the lower tier and would need to be fairly substantial to support a stand cantilevered over the lower tier. It would almost certainly need to project back quite a bit further towards Leazes Terrace.

Mirrored glass is often a big no no and a cheap option to 'fit in with the surrounding areas'. When you can get sandstone cladding fairly cheap now there is no reason why the back of the east stand can't simply just have this, it would be a cheap and easy option that would make the area look 100x better.
Extending the boundary out towards the edge of the paved area would also be a good option, this could create more concourse space in the east stand which is needed.

For the record the type of cladding I'm on about is the same of that which is used at Northumbria Kings gate and into buildings, as well as it being the same as used at Wellbar and Times Central behind he Gallowgate.

Yes i get how the sun works but as its rising in the east it would reflect light onto the area before the sun gets high enough in the sky to do it directly.

The real issue is whether the roof supports could be fitted in as someone pointed out but this is the 21st century after all and engineering has come on in leaps and bounds over the last few decades. Its probably all academic anyway!!!

It's all about suites/luxury boxes. Those stadiums built in 60/70/80s don't have them and cannot add them easily. It's just too much revenue to loose out on, so they pull the "build me a new stadium here or we move to a city who will".
For the cities/States building the stadiums it's all about the tax revenue - both game day ticket/concession sales but also income tax on players salary

You still need new stadiums. The Georgia Dome is old as f***, it's got crap facilities throughout, and it's not really condusive to any other sport. You need these type of developments in cities as they also bring in far more revenues/jobs etc. They also will pin these to other multi faceted mixed-use developments with retail, residential, hotel, etc. It's smart transformative business in most cases.

You still need new stadiums. The Georgia Dome is old as f***, it's got crap facilities throughout, and it's not really condusive to any other sport. You need these type of developments in cities as they also bring in far more revenues/jobs etc. They also will pin these to other multi faceted mixed-use developments with retail, residential, hotel, etc. It's smart transformative business in most cases.

Georgia Dome is 23 years old. There's stuff in my fridge older than that!

But compared to a lot of the newer stadiums the facilities are terrible, which leads to:

It's a s*** hole man

Because it totally is when there are stadiums like the new Cowboys stadium or others, even in other sports.

You need a new stadium pretty frequently to keep up with the times, no one is going to want to play or go watch a game in a shithole when the town over has a state of the art new stadium.

That's f***ed up.

It may seem that way from the outside, and it's a lot of money to spend, but it also revitalizes whole neighborhoods like Kanji said above. It spurs on economic growth in cities that really need it. Attached to some of these new stadiums are mixed use developments that bring in crazy development turning old un-safe parts of town in to highly sought after property. 

Also when you get a new stadium you're also in line to host things like the Superbowl or the All Star week for baseball which both bring in untold amounts of money to the city.

SJP needs a clean up, the east stand looks shocking, the grey cladding could do with be replaced with something easier on the eye, the zinc cladding the business school over the road has looks far better. Inside a lot of it needs updating, I think the club have been doing this gradually though. The glass roof needs a good clean and replacement panels that have yellowed (where plastic panels are use).
The seats themselves must be coming towards their end life now.

Even if it wasn't going to be extended (which isn't likely) it still needs some TLC, imagine you bad your house would be if you never decorated since the 90's/early 2000's, because that's pretty much the situation with SJP right now.

Been down that road to some extent. Prior to re-development they floated the idea of a stadium in Gateshead (banks of Tyne, iirc). Not many takers. Even though it looks very different, as does (increasing) the surrounding area, would be tough to take loss of heritage that comes with current home.

The footprint of the new White Hart Lane shows how massive it's gonna be (in comparison to the old stadium). It'll be a monster

You can see it clearly in this vid

It'll go from the far left, to the road on the far right. Huge compared to the current stadium

Nah we'll have to disagree. I love a good open air style uncovered stadium. I'm watching Lavante v Valencia now, Lavantes ground would be your bog standard St Marys, Riverside affair if it were British and had a roof. Looks miles better without.

I think the reason for Stade Velodromes roof was UEFAs new regs on tournament stadia. Which is s*** cause major tournaments are in summer and you don't need a roof.

100%. I havent argued against that (or at least I hope I havent :lol: ). West Ham fans will love it for a season or two then the feeling will wear off. I dunno if they'll ever hate it, but aye.

The thing I've argued for is the actual view I guess. It won't be anywhere near as bad as some people make out.

Going by my local 3g pitch, the playing areas are the same but rugby pitch has a 10m in goal area slapped on each end.

Looking at that picture of SJP I think the pitch is right at the bottom end of what's legal, with shortened in goal areas too.

This is correct, though I guess what HTT is getting at is that (at this point, I should add) it seems like a s*** stadium for football and eventually it'll take it's toll on the fans.

If WHU are going to salvage that stadium then they're seriously going to need to form a 'Singing Section' area (that is quite large) to allow fans to stand and sing. Otherwise it will be about as lively as a fox imprinted into the hard shoulder of the M2.

If I were a West Ham fan I'd be totally devastated about leaving the Boleyn. Even the area (despite looking like a street from Islamabad) cultivates that feeling of identity and pride with the club and it's history- Green Street etc. It's a proper ground imo, makes me sad to see another iconic English stadium being traded for a soulless bowl like The Olympic Stadium; Sky will absolutely w*** themselves into overdrive about how 'modern' and 'safe' and 'family friendly' it is :(

Of course, but clubs cant force people to go and/or give their ticket away, hence why I think it's a bit silly to claim "they cant even fill their ground!" aimed at.. whichever club, not just City. Obviously some clubs can't even sell tickets but yeah.

West Ham have, and I quote, "five times as many supporters than available season tickets" on the waiting list for the new Olympic stadium.  Whether those people go or not (if they think the atmosphere/stadium is s*** after a few months and pack it in) is a different matter, but they still sold all tickets and justified the move (in the short term at least)

Apologies for my broken record approach here. If you imagine a Football goal where the rugby sticks are it's about three quarters of a mile to the first row of seats behind the goal, that couple with the shallow incline means that those at the back of the lower tier will all be turning around to watch the scoreboard when the balls up the far end.

Me too, cause it's not as far as it looks on pictures :lol: No pictures can truly replicate what we see with our eyes. What you'd see if you're there is way more 'zoomed in' than the pics make out. If you zoom a camera it'd be wrong too because it'd cut out the peripheral vision.  People who have been there to see games have all said the views are fine, even from the back of the 2nd tier

UEFA (FIFA?) regs state the max distances allowed for football viewing from one corner flag to the opposite end of the stadium is 190m. Here's how that looks for the olympic stadium, and why the seats in black (blue on this pic) are not in use

(http://img.prntscr.com/img?url=http://i.imgur.com/YFPu5J2.png)

I actually think when West Ham increased the capacity to 60,000, they just put those seats into use and are selling them for cheaper (I may be wrong).

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/football/2016/06/01/could-suprastadio-put-chelsea-liverpool-and-tottenham-to-shame-w/

Quote
Now, a revolutionary new stadium design is promising to solve both the space and sightline issues for football clubs – or anyone looking to redevelop or build spectator seating areas.

Suprastadio claims to have done this by turning the concept of a traditional grandstand on its head, folding it back in on itself as its number of tiers increase.
The wave-like design is the brainchild of the German-based Interpol Studios, a multi-disciplinary agency which includes an architecture division.

Those behind Suprastadio boast that its grandstands take up one third less ground space than those of a conventional stadium and, just as importantly, they allow many more spectators a closer view of the action.

In a 55,000-seater arena, Suprastadio’s inventors estimate 97 per cent of ticket-holders would be less than 50 metres from the pitch, compared with less than two-thirds in a traditional ground.

They also claim the design helps trap sound and amplifies the atmosphere generated by those present and that its smaller volume makes it cheaper to run.

They insist it is no more expensive to construct than a conventional stadium and can be either built as an enclosed arena or as individual grandstands alongside traditional single-tier Kop-style stands.

Pretty much turning it into a football stadium from what it was. 78k to 81k capacity, plus corporate boxes as you see. Closing it in too if that makes sense. If you look at where the back row of the top tier meets the roof on both pics you'll see what I mean.  I think they've done a great job in keeping the stadium shell as it was but completely modernising it at the same time.  West Ham should have done something similar but I suppose they're not/werent allowed

It's essentially what we said we'd do if they gave us the stadium. We promised to make it a footy stadium, then upgrade Crystal Palace to be the premier athletics stadium. Now it looks like CP might end up being demolished.

Good effort.  O0  Man City and Moscow are both great illustrations of what's required to turn an athletics stadium into a proper football stadium. And it ain't easy, or cheap.

Sunday's match between Tottenham Hotspur and Southampton will be the final match held at a full capacity White Hart Lane. The club confirmed in a statement on Tottenham's website that in order to move forward on a critical element in the foundation of their new stadium, which is being built adjacent to White Hart Lane, part of the North East corner of the existing stadium will need to be demolished.

The demolition is necessary to install one of the concrete cores that form needed "to stabilize the stadium structure." Because it sits within the footprint of White Hart Lane, and in order to avoid construction delays, it's necessary to close and demolish part of that corner. The work will result in 4000 less seats for the entirety of the 2016-17 season.

Spurs are already in the process of notifying the 1800 season ticket holders whose seats are in the affected area, and have assured fans that those with seats will be relocated to equivalent seats elsewhere in the stadium.

This is obviously not an ideal situation, especially in what is expected to be the final season at White Hart Lane before its full demolition in 2017-18. Moreover, the reduction in seating could put Spurs afoul of UEFA regulations regarding Champions League stadiums, which is one reason why Spurs are currently in negotiations to play Champions League football matches at Wembley Stadium next season.

It also means 4000 fewer fans who can attend matches in White Hart Lane's final season, which is a shame. With a sizable season ticket waiting list and more fans who wish to attend Spurs matches than who actually can, it's likely that this will also affect the ticket resale market for Spurs matches as well.

Nobody's happy about this, least of all the club, but it seems as though it is a necessary evil in order to debut a shiny new stadium in with a minimum of delays in two years' time.

EVERTON majority investor Farhad Moshiri has a Blues vision which includes Champions League football and a new stadium.

The self-made billionaire bought a 49.9 per cent stake in Everton in February.

And chairman Bill Kenwright has revealed some of the Iranian’s ambitions.

“Farhad absolutely has a vision for this football club,” he said.

“It involves the Champions League and a new stadium.

So Everton will be in a new stadium in a few years

To celebrate the success, a skyscraper was designed in the south-western corner of the stadium, shaped after the UEFA Cup. After several alterations its form stopped at 142 meters in height (38 floors, some 20,000 square meters).

This wasn’t the only interesting idea. Two other corners were equipped with office buildings (south-east and north-west), except these are hidden within the stadium’s outer shape (7,500 sqm each). Fourth corner (north-east) will be home to a 48-room hotel.

Some of the stadiums the Americans are building right now are out if this world, the minnesota vikings one is f'ing unreal. The stadiums I can't stand are the soulless tat that was thrown up, mainly in Britain after the Taylor report. Boro, derby, etc.

I hate losing real classic places like the Vicente Calderón, and I had a good bitch about the stade Velodrome cause it doesn't look half as good as it used to. And the camp nou with all the seats covered?

In the end I suppose a stadium builds it's character after you've been in a decade or too and built plenty of memories, but to me the best example of staying put is West Ham. Id be livid if I supported them. I'd burn the Olympic Stadium down!

Supposedly three-game group stage packages for between 70 and 150 quid...which also gives you priority for later stages if we get lucky. That's pretty damn good, particularly with concessions being 50% off.

It should give us a bit of an idea about interest in tickets for the new stadium too.

Was previously fuming about West Ham getting a new ground off the taxpayer (and Gold & Sullivan lining their pockets when they sell the club).

Now coming around to the idea that their w***** fans being stuck in a s*** ground they'll hate for years to come is taxpayers money well spent.

They dug down. The bottom tier & pitch are below ground level. Then because to go down you have to go inwards too, the bottom tier was formed and closes up to the side of the pitch.

It was always designed to be converted though and that was the plan all along.  The Olympic stadium was never designed to be a football stadium (as it obvious :lol: )

For most if not all of this season it will be on breeze blocks/scaffolding, it will then be converted to be on flat forms that have wheels on it and I think but I'm not sure but the platforms will also rise and descend. It's shambles that they have had years of it being empty and don't do that work until after West Ham move in.

Manchester City supporters will be able to pay to watch Pep Guardiola’s stars prepare for matches at the Etihad Stadium through a glass players’ tunnel thought to be the first of its kind in Europe.

City fans prepared to pay for the privilege will be able to eat and drink in a newly built executive lounge with a view as players from both teams emerge from the dressing rooms in front of them and walk down a staircase surrounded completely by glass on their way to the pitch.

They have done a fantastic job fitting out the interior as well. One feature they have done is have walls with former players and managers on there with their stats.

The stadium is not for me. No atmosphere. If you think one song of bubbles at the start of each half counts - it doesn't. The ground has no real character and doesn't even remind me of the legacy of the games or anything like that. It is big yes and we have filled it so far, but what have we filled it with? Pop corn stalls, In-fighting in the crowd and day trippers. When the novelty wears off we will be rattling round in there. Also the standing debate is causing carnage as we have seen.
Feels like the soul of the club has been sold. The badge change, the ground move, the conflict between fans and board. It's not the West Ham i love.
This might be because I am still hurting from last night, but if I had to renew my ST tomorrow I don't think I would. I would more than likely stick to away games and use the ST money elsewhere. Working all week and spending all day on a Saturday away from my little girl is tough but was justified last season. I am hoping to be proven wrong on the about the above but it has not been a good start - I want to go home.

Did the tour a couple of years ago. The away changing rooms are based just under one of the terraces behind the goals so at HT all the Boca fans start jumping up and down etc and the noise can be heard as the manager is trying to give the team talk.

Spurs are responsible for employing staff to work at Wembley during their games. As a result they have resorted to getting unemployed people to volunteer under the guise of helping them gain employability skills. SSN did a segment on it and made out as though they were doing a good thing instead of reporting how they are clearly exploiting vulnerable people who are likely desperate for paid employment.

That stadium is becoming more and more of a joke as it goes on.

I don't think the Spurs bid was ever serious. I think it was just them trying to get their local council to support it and to push them into pursueing a CPO for an industrial unit that stood in the way. Even if it was serious, their bid involved in a total demolition and rebuilding of the Olympics stadium.

No, I think it was serious at first. Levy's no fool, he knows what a great opportunity it could have been. We have been consistently held back by infrastructure issues when looking to increase the size of White Hart Lane, and Stratford had the transport links etc in place. We just recognized that trying to shoehorn a football club into that stadium wouldn't work. The offer was to revamp Crystal Palace as the premier athletics venue and build a proper football stadium at Stratford.

When Coe et al decided that they'd much rather make some money themselves from Crystal Palace (https://insidecroydon.com/2014/10/15/lord-coes-company-behind-plans-to-bulldoze-athletics-stadium/) and West Ham's "plan" was preferred, Levy just wanted to make sure that the structure of the deal was such that West Ham wouldn't be quietly given the Olympic Stadium some time down the line - the "athletics legacy clause". I think his original bid was serious.

No clue how many seats we'd get but we could only realistically expand the Gallowgate End to Level 7 height, which would probably take the capacity to about 61,000? The price of the expansion, plus (correct me if I'm wrong) having to buy back the lease for the land behind the Gallowgate won't be paid back for quite a while from ticket sales.

Upgrading for me is to make it more 'posh' to those corporate groups who might visit SJP often if we ever get taken over. Give the ground a good 'cosmetic' update or something. At least make it marketable and attractive unlike the advertising space it is right now for Fat Mike. The Etihad did something last season if I'm not mistaken. Expanding would of course have its high costs and all but making SJP an attractive venue for things apart from the football wont hurt.

I was all for a new stadium when it was last aired before the "friends of Leazes Park" put an end to our very own San Siro. I now do see the importance of our City Centre location, but since we fill what we have now after 2 relegation in 6 years, if the place ever took off and we actually were in the frame to win something, you could imagine the demand and we would absolutely need a bigger ground. Since redeveloping SJP to increase capacity is not feasible or probably even possible, then moving would be the only solution. The ideal scenario would be to mimic what Spuds have done and rebuild the stadium on the same site (or close by), but we don't have the luxury of being able to lease the national stadium for a year while we rebuild.

A new stadium could easily be built on the current land and exactly how Spurs have done theirs with the problem caused by Leazes Terrace 'solved' by having a green area adjacent to it. This could be part of the bartering chip to give back some of the green land that we would take up.

A new St James' Park would be within 400m at worst of the current plot and maybe as short as having the new Gallowgate end just past where the Leazes end is now or it could be spun 90 degrees or whatever to suit.

Instead of a drug infested s*** heap that lies North of the ground now that the students walk across or others allow to have their dogs sh.it on, we could have a real jewel in the English crown with road links exactly the same, maybe even the same entrance road for the officials cars. It's not rocket science to do if the likes of me, Joe Bloggs can think of things to suit all, even the cows would be safe.

A grand entrance to the newly named St James' Park which would be a spruced up forest type area with a big ground in the middle could be where the lower Gallowgate is.  Massive money and massive amounts of time would be taken to do this but it's perfectly feasible and ticks every box there is.

No idea why they would want to do a controlled explosive demolition on that in the first place. They are usually reserved for tall buildings that have no land around them for cranes and rubble to go. This is an old stadium with plenty of space both on the inside and the outside for machinery and rubble. Not only that but controlled exploding demolitions let off a lot of dust which you want to avoid, on this demolition here doesn’t seem to be many if any sheeting around it to contain the dust.
They have probably only opted for that type of demolition to gain an audience.

Leazes Terrace is a Grade 1 Listed Building. To give an idea of what Grade 1 means in terms of significance, roughly 90% of all Listed Buildings are Grade 2, about 7% are Grade 2* and only about 3% are Grade 1. They are buildings of exceptional significance. There is no realistic prospect of Listed Building Consent ever being granted to move it, which would inevitably harm its significance.

Aside for that, it's f***ing massive, it would probably cost hundreds of millions of pounds to do. It is never going to happen. Nor should it, it's a stunning building that I beam with pride is part of my city every time I walk past it.

The first implosion will break metal beams at the perimeter of the stadium that were used to keep the roof inflated.

The rest of the demolition will be done in phases during the next year with the use of hydraulic excavators followed by a vacuuming process to pick up the broken materials imo.

This looks doable then, what will their capacity be once finished if finished? I do like Sellhurst Park, it’s old school and there is usually a cracking atmosphere. Last time I was there was in our first Championship season and we took far too many away fans and the game was delayed, it was very cramped it the away end entering, exiting and trying to get to the bogs etc. Views weren’t the best either as we were kind of at the back of the stand. Great weekend though, sunshine, that banana strip and a 2-0 win.

Quote
The project, which is expected to cost between £75-£100m, will increase the capacity at Selhurst Park from 26,000 to more than 34,000

Key features of the redevelopment include:
Capacity in the new stand will increase from around 5,400 to 13,500, with more than 10,700 General Admission seats - an increase of around 6,000 on existing numbers
Improved facilities for supporters with disabilities and a substantial increase in wheelchair spaces, making Selhurst Park compliant with Accessible Stadia Guidelines
A bigger pitch, increased from 101.5m x 68, to 105m x68m, making Selhurst Park compliant with UEFA regulations and eligible to host tournament football
Premium hospitality and entertainment facilities for more than 2,500 supporters, including a new Tunnel Club, and between 16-28 boxes, which will give members a unique vantage point as the players prepare for the match and conduct post-match interviews
A new museum, documenting the club’s rich history and its place in the South London community
New community facilities, supplementing the work of the Palace for Life Foundation, which delivers health, education and sporting programmes for more than 13,500 local children and young adults
Improved sightlines in the Arthur Wait Stand with the removal of the TV gantry, and improved Arthur Wait concourse
Redevelopment of the upper Whitehorse Lane Boxes into mixed bar/box use

Has a bit of a modernist art deco look to it. Not of my taste but it doesn't look bad at all imo.

I'm more of a Craven Cottage style stadium person than these new bowl-style designs. Would like to see someone have a good go and designing a stadium which harks back to that old late 1800's early 1900's style but with a modern touch.

I'm with Dave on this, like.

I said already in this thread that west ham fans would regret moving in under a decade, I reckon most would admit already that they should have stayed put. I don't know enough about Atletico but it wouldn't surprise me if their fans feel or grow to feel the same. Leaving our stadium and it's location would be absolutely criminal, imo.

I would hate to move out of the city centre.

Me too.

I'm reckon we could possibly do something with the East Stand to increase capacity, without affecting Leazes Terrace. Knock it down completely and build it much higher with a steeper angle...could even possibly make it two tier.

 It only holds something like 5000 ffs
Leazes terrace has a "right to light" though. Make the east stand taller and it'd infringe

'Right to light' is a civil law matter that is for the affected property owner to enforce through the courts, or not. If it would infringe, the club could potentially come to an compensatory arrangement with the University.

Loss of light is a consideration in planning applications. Each Council tends to assess it in different way depending on their adopted policy, guidance or just established rules of thumb. No idea how Newcastle go about it, just tried to access their SPDs to see but I can't download them.

Students dont see the light of day anyway so it's an invalid legal concern. If anything, the East stand covering that street in darkness could save them money on buying curtains to keep the light out.

Palace joining the tunnel club fad. There will be 1 or 2 palace fans with enough money to get tickets, but will there be a big demand?

It just looks like only the 1 stand that will look good from the outside, you can even see in the background the other stand looking cheap and bland. Fair play to them for wanting to upgrade their stadium though.
Will it still go ahead if they go down?

I'm guessing some of the seats are removable or retractable. For concerts etc. The Wikipedia page says they host motocross events too, so that's worth spending an extra couple of hundred million dollars.

The stadium it replaced apparently had issues with the roof, but it hardly warranted spending £1.6billion on a flashy new gaff. In America it seems their stadiums have a lifespan of no more than a few decades, and with teams being franchises of a league they're holding cities to ransom. Build us a new stadium or we're offski.

The only way to make these massive football stadiums financially viable, especially when taxpayer funded (a disgrace), is to make them adaptable enough to be in the rotation for other major events. This is why many of them have a roof (retractable optional) regardless of climate, lower bowl seating that may look awkward, and non-standard shapes. Then it can support football as the main event, plus basketball (NCAA tournament), soccer (maybe MLS, friendlies, potential WC), major concerts with different configurations, etc.

The American football season is so short to justify spending hundreds of millions on new stadiums every few decades. As you say you need other events for the remaining 9 months of the year to make them viable.

Yeah, they did a great job with Lucas Oil and for a number of reasons it has become a top city for events. Indy is where the NCAA is headquartered and for a football stadium it's about as good as it gets for basketball sightlines so it's on a five year rotation for the Final Four, it's hosted the Super Bowl, it hosts the NFL Combine, the Big Ten Championship, and it's getting the College Football Championship in a few years.

You can almost justify a taxpayer funded stadium if it's bringing in that many events, but it's still a joke.

Do you mean White Hart Lane or the London Stadium?

If you mean WHL, then I presume you're talking about the walk from Seven Sisters. You should have a few more options. They're supposed to be significantly upgrading White Hart Lane and Northumberland Park stations, and instituting shuttle buses from Tottenham Hale (a new bus garage) and Alexandra Palace via Wood Green. Ally Pally is on a suburban line that starts at Kings Cross, so it should be easier to come from the northeast. You'd get to Kings Cross, then walk to a different platform, then get off at Alexandra Palace and take the bus.

Damn, I miss going to WHL :lol:.

It's very unlikely that anyone else is out there that would be willing to throw the amount of money at them that they've become accustomed to. I'm sure someone would want to buy them but I doubt that they'd get another sugar-daddy type owner. There just aren't that many mega rich blokes out there that are willing to plough hundreds of millions into football the way Abramovich, Mansour and the PSG owners have. The likelihood is that all of the people with that much of an interest in football and that much money already own clubs.

They are not in a position to compete for titles as a self sustaining club, without a sugar daddy they'll drop out of the top four and that global brand position will quickly be forgotten.

And while we're at it, this from KUMB's summer transfer discussions:

Quote
You'll probably think that all this Arnautovic being a more complete player than both Kane and Aguero is the talk of a few old fools looking at him through Claret and Blue spectacles but Arnautovic is stronger than either of them, keeps the ball better, can beat his man better, can score goals with both feet and heads the ball just as well if not better than both of them. That is, he is the complete centre-forward. Kane is brilliant at finding space for himself and scoring goals but someone else has to provide him with those goals. Arnautovic plays both provider and scorer. Aguero is similar to Kane only isn't as hard working. I'd have Arnautovic in my team before either of them.

Tottenham have made a payment to The FA to play their home games at Wembley until the new year with fears there could be delays over the construction of their new stadium.

Spurs had already planned to play their first home game against Fulham next weekend at Wembley.

But initial plans to play their next home fixture vs Liverpool at their new stadium on September 15 could now be shelved, with a contingency plan now in place in the event that the new stadium is not ready.

Daniel Levy now has Wembley booked up until 2019 for both Premier League AND Champions League home matches.

Unsurprising. Didn't realise they'd already agreed to play at Wembley for the Fulham game.

Most modern stadiums leave me cold, but Tottenham's looks like it's going to be impressive.

Same. This looks better than the generic offerings we usually get. It reminds me of the old Marseille velodrome behind the goal

Was the nfl match supposed to be played at Wembley? coz there was one to be played at the new stadium and that's got moved. Would imagine them moving the Spurs game by a day or two.

Spurs wanted it to be moved to the Etihad, which has been blocked. So as of now there's nowhere to play that game :lol:

Move it to the day before?  I guess the NFL takes longer than a day to set up though?

Development coming for Wolves in the next few years by the sounds of things

Quote
"We'd want to be in a position whereby we think by next summer we're making a start on how we want to develop this stadium.

[...]

"Our ambition is to take this club where it's in a position regularly having an attendance of 50,000, 55,000 and possibly more into this stadium is where we feel we're going to take this club in the short-to-medium term.

"I'm confident we can do that in our existing home."

Alan Brazil said that he's been told by someone in the city that there is no chance it will be completed by next season.

Looks like he was right, he also said that Ashley has had multiple offers for us so hopefully he's wrong about that.

Coming to the point where I think Spurs should have to switch each of their "home" fixtures and fulfil the fixture at their opponents ground until their stadium is ready. Delays harken and the odd emergency switch is fine but there should be some kind of punishment or deterrent for want of a better word. Wembley shouldn't be an option for them this season. Your ground isn't ready yet? Tough s***, play away until it is.

Workers on Spurs' new White Hart Lane stadium 'off their heads on cocaine' during construction

Tottenham Hotspur have been hit with fresh allegations over their delayed new stadium that workers on-site have been drinking and drug-taking and that the problems with the 60,062-capacity project have in part been caused by chaotic management of a workforce that peaked at 4,000.

Industry magazine Construction News levelled a range of allegations against Mace, who have managed the building of Spurs’ new home which was originally scheduled to open last Saturday for the Premier League game against Liverpool. It was alleged by one unnamed source that when the site was at capacity “there were people off their heads, drinking cans first thing in the morning before going on to site and snorting coke in the toilets”.

My irritation with it is that clubs in London have this fallback that is often an upgrade when they plan to play games away from their stadium.

If Newcastle or Sunderland were to take this approach we'd have to drop down to something like a 5k capacity stadium like Kingston Park while clubs in London get an upgrade to an 80k capacity stadium.
