I don't think £239 million is going to affect them very much.

I doubt it will affect them at all, there's always the tendency to think these costs will come from the owners pockets but every penny of it will probably be borrowed.

It's just another step on the path to world domination - no harm at all in being the parent club to an MLS team, certainly it will give us some brand recognition in the US.  With Emi signing his new contract, the signing of Coutinho, and with Dougie and Buendia on the books we are already becoming a much bigger deal in South America - all of this can only help us in attracting sponsorship.

The big advantage is that we could use that club to bring in talented youngsters who don't meet the work permit requirements here and then when they get international recognition we can move them over, also opens up the options for youth development for our own academy and gives access to a potentially huge pool of US youngsters.

If you were planning this out fully to give an English club the best possible opportunity to dominate you'd probably try to buy a club somewhere like Holland or Portugal as well so you could use that as a base for an EU academy.

I know it's unlikely but I hope they can figure out a way of expanding yo 50k without filling in the corners. I love the fact were unique, I don't want us to just become another fish bowl

Revert the whole of the Holte to standing. It used to hold 28k on its own

That doesn't solve the problem of the North Stand being shite.  It needs rebuilt no matter what.

Doesn't safe standing require one place per (tipped-up) seat? Standing or not it would remain at 13,500 or thereabouts.

Not sure about the rules here in the UK but the Sudtribune, Yellow Wall at Dortmund holds 24,454  for domestic games and far less for European games when it becomes all seating. Can't find any stats for its seating capacity.

Yeah, think the new safe 'rail' seating would not increase capacity. 13,500 converted seats would equal the same amount standing.

50k is achievable by replacing the North Stand with something on the scale of the Holte End without the need to fill in the corners. I think I've read somewhere that the back row of the Holte is considered to be the maximum comfortable viewing distance so it wouldn't go higher than that just much wider than the current North Stand.

Surely the stand at Old Trafford and the new one at Anfield  go back, and up, further than the Holte?
