What do my colleagues on H&V think of this?

Something like that for the Trinity. It would be cheap enough to do and a massive improvement over what we have right now.

It's not the displays Dortmund do that I like. It's the fact that they've just got a massive single tier stand behind the goal. It looks fantastic.

I'm not sure how we could put in a massive single tier stand behind the goal without it looking like the Dortmund one.

I'm pretty sure Spurs are putting in a single tier behind one of the goals in the new White Hart Lane.

Liverpool would've done it aswell if they'd moved ground.

We had one tier behind the goal before Dortmund did so they copied us.

We sacrificed making the Holte End a single tier due to accommodating hospitality boxes, most of them usually empty, otherwise it would have matched the Dortmund mountain of humanity. More's the pity.

 No we didn't. It couldn't be a single tier because of distance from the pitch, and also because single tier stands look cheap and nasty.

Liverpool have a single tier behind goal stand. Itís about 11k-12k of seats. Spursí version will be 15k.

Hospitality boxes on the Holte?

Distance issue could have been solved by making it steeper. Cheap and nasty? That's a matter of opinion.

That's what the designers and the regulations said at the time and all this let's be like Dortmund talk forgets one thing - no club in England has got an end like Dortmund. This isn't Germany.

I think that Park Head looks meh inside and out. Some big mesh curtain won't improve the Trinity.

I would well.imagine that the aspect the photo has been taken from would see a new North wrap round from there so chances are in in 3 years time it will look completely different.
