    So when do people reckon our first game will be? As far as I can tell there is no definitive date, so I'm gonna hazard a guess...

    Saturday 15th August 2015.

    Any reason to doubt that? So less than 1000 days to go!

    I'm hoping 2015 too, but you know how these things go.

    The theory is work starts on our new stadium next summer. Two years to build the stadium ought to be plenty, you'd think?

    You haven't allowed for any delay caused by the contractors striking:
    oil; the main sewer; rare wildlife species habitat; the vault where Daniel Levy sleeps; Harry's hidden stache;
    a medieaval plague pit; the graves of several new Messi's who arrived and disappeared without trace.
    The coldest winters and wettest springs for 2000 years due to global warming.
    2015 you're having a laugh .

    Things always get delayed, sadly.

    2 years to complete phase 1 - 3/4 of the stadium complete, with the rest of the old stadium and the final quarter of the new one built in the third year.

    Another whole year to tidy the place up.

    Now why don't we all push the Club towards having a standing area say at the lower or upper "kop" end.

    That would lift the capacity to a headline 60k, accommodate those who stand anyway and lift the atmosphere.

    Atmosphere has suffered since all seating because among other reasons more women and kids attend these days because all seating gives them comfort and safety.

    It is excellent that women and children go along in more numbers but they are naturally not so loud as male adult voices.

    Singing and chanting usually begins and emanates from one section of a football ground then the rest follow.

    The standing section would most likely be that section a la some German football grounds.
