Town moor is fine.

If all the freemen get personally rich off it, I'm in.

Looking at a map of Newcastle, apart from the Town Moor, there’s not a lot of choice of places to build a new stadium. Unless the plan would be to buy a lot of existing properties only to knock them down.

The often quoted area of Newcastle for a new stadium, is Gosforth Park.

Many people want to keep the Stadium in the City Centre though, and Gosforth Park (where Newcastle Racecourse is) is regarded as a bit too 'far out', by many.

The Town Moor as our main "City Centre Park", though only part of it is laid out as a Victorian-style park, such as Exhibition Park, Nuns Moor Park, and Leazes Park (all part of the Town Moor) is unlikely to ever be released by the Freeman for a new stadium.

Leazes Park is probably the best place for it.

As said just above, the Freemen will never agree to release it, as it is a part of 'Town Moor Land'.

Would you want to lose Leazes Park?

The arena site is set for student and commercial apartments, isn't it?

The Arena Site is too small, and there are proposals in planning already for the adjacent sites.

Do people really want to move the f***ing stadium? I realise there are insurmountable issues to expanding it to ridiculous hyper modern stadium standards, but is there a better placed stadium location from any club in the league? It's too symbolic and we should stay even if we can't expand to a ridiculous number of seats

Couldn't agree more
"Lots of young fellas runnin' around in shorts, that's the kind of think you like looking at, and I bet you like that too, only you're probably imagining what they'd look like without shorts, you're sitting there imagining that with a big smile on your face, ya dirty fecker"

The stadium is good for business for the city, the council should be bending over backwards to make sure it stays put.

£25m the rugby weekend was worth. Wouldnt happen if sjp was 5 miles out the centre.

The Magic Weekend has just been held at Anfield. Many Rugby League fans  were unhappy about it being moved from SJP and even more so after experiencing Anfield because of it’s location and the lack of things to do around the stadium. 

The city centre location is a huge asset to the club and for these big events, it creates a great atmosphere around the event because all the fans are mostly concentrated in the city centre compared to other cities where all the visitors are spread out all over the place.

Aye, works both ways. The club and the city need to be one. Juve’s Move (wham to s lesser extent) should show why a bigger stadium somewhere in the middle of nowhere isn’t the be all and atmosphere, surroundings and belonging all play a part.

Spin the stadium around, block the strawberry delveopment, stay at 52, all preferred options for me and should be for the city.

A few weeks ago when the rugby finals were on, I had fans coming up to me at work saying they were enjoying the city and it’s nice to go to a stadium that’s pretty much in the city centre.

If we’re gonna stay, they have to do something to the exterior. Looks so f***ing dated now.

It's a thing of beauty, just needs a bit of work and a good Sheikh-funded ablution.

St James' Park is the best thing in the city by f***ing miles. Never, ever leave, ever, ever, ever. Just spruce the t*** up a bit. Get Greggs in to do the food, and get Wylam to do the booze.

I quite like that idea of rotating the pitch to make the sides bigger, having the small east stand as one of the ends would be a bit mad like, but that's how it would have to be.

But we would have to have a temporary stadium while it's done?
