Enough is Enough, Just renovate the existing WHL site! So its gone very quiet on the new stadium front. Nothing is being said about the NDP and we lost the Olympic Stadium bid. Despie the judiciary appeal I can only see us getting compensation (quite rightly so) rather that getting the decision over turned. So as it stands we are stuck in our lovely but small WHL home. My honest opinion when I saw the plans for NDP development was one of disapointment. i hate the new stadiums and ditest the Emirates and all I could see was an Emirates Mark II with blue seats. I prefer the older more traditional stadiums that have been developed over the years with Old Trafford being the best example. When you go there you can smell the history and you know that the same pitch has played host to all the United greats in the past. Something that is lacking at the Emirates! So it got me thinking that wouldnt it be alot better if we just renovated our current home? The current West stand only hold 6,800 as when it was built in the early 80's every inch of planning went on corporate hospitality. So this stand has to go. The East stand is alot larger and holds 10,800, however it is the oldest stand at the ground and still has pillars! You could build on the East and West sides of the curent ground 2 stands that could hold aound 16,000 each. (similar to West Hams Dr Martin stand and Chelsea's West Stand) with all the corporate facilites needed but at the same time maximising capacity. This would increase capacity at WHL to around 51,000. Perfect size for us IMO. It would be a fraction of the cost It will take 1 1/2 years to build. No need for any stupid sponsorship names We keep the atmosphere. One major draw back would be that for a season and a half we would have to play our games elsewhere say Wembley?. But I think it would be a price worth paying. I will honestly cry if/when that place gets knocked down and when I look at the best most historic stadia in the world they are all older stadiums. Yes the old place is looking a bit tired but its home and I love it!!!! Come on Levy and co lets just bin the plans and rebuild the beutiful WHL!!!!
