So the pic of it where they say all the grass gone... is that just the fibre stuff left? And they'll sew new grass into it?

I thought it was always dependent on the transport upgrades.

Old news was on SHA, it's already been on there for an hour.

Reckon thatís us fully putting them under pressure.

Apparently the European Championship games here will bring > £100m to the local economy.

If the capacity does not get added by then, or if there is real risk it wonít, then weíll miss out on hosting.

How embarrassing would that be for the region?

University stationís upgrade for the commonwealth games still isnt finished and despite all the disruption trams wonít run to digbeth until
2028 at the earliest. Just sums up public transport in brum.

Treasury Brain strikes again. Street needs to keep applying the pressure and earn his money.

I think this is about the club putting pressure on the WMCA to stump up the money towards the Witton Station upgrade. Andy Street needs to get his finger out or Birmingham will lose its status to hold major sporting events. Living in the vicinity of the ground I've witnessed pandemonium on the streets this last week. I've heard stories of people wandering round the area in the early hours distraught and lost. We are the biggest attraction in the second biggest city in a country with one of the world's top ten economies. The city's transport network is appaling. Governments of all shades have wilfully neglected the city in favour of the South East and the North West. The only tram line being installed (at a snails pace) is going to loosely serve The Sty!! I know it's going that way for HS2 but even so it just about sums up the transport strategy (snigger) of this great city.

I was at Twickenham last night for a concert, and the difference in customer experience from VP is massive. Every aspect of getting in, getting food, drinks, merch, going to the toilets, and getting away from the stadium at the end is light years ahead of ours.

For the commonwealth games, which it wasnít finished for, which wasnít a major issue as the athletes village at Perry Barr wasnít finished either.
