Not related to the redevelopment but ESPN Brasil were around yesterday and tweeting some videos of VP. General consensus was very positive with people saying it's impressive, the nicest in the PL etc. especially when they saw the back of the Holte. https://twitter.com/j_castelobranco/status/1524417336412942337

Anyway, I knew we had the decals listing our major honours above where the players go out as you see it on TV. What I didn't realise is that also they have the European Cup, FA Cup and old First Division trophies on display on the left of the tunnel.

I have read that Villa Park may be due to host one or even possibly two Bruce Springsteen concerts, round about this time next year.  Bearing in mind the redevelopment plans for the ground, and the transport problems we are all very aware of, it would be interesting to see the capacity that might be set for the events, and the transport plan that might be put in place to get people to, and most significantly away from, Villa Park on the night(s).

There would be trains. Lots of trains. More trains than you could ever imagine. There's never a problem finding trains for gigs.

NSWE really are intent on bringing the Glory Days back to Villa Park.

Will Bruce be bringing the special effects that went down so well with the locals in 1988?

Easier to maximise the capacity when you can stick the stage where the North Stand used to be, rather than on the pitch.

I expect there are a lot of i's to dot and t's to cross before they can make an announcement. Maybe we need a thread/poll on when the plans will become public.

No, delayed so Louzie0 can wrap up her GTC 2024 contest. Gotta respect that!

I think they said the application will go in at the end of the summer.

I'm all for the redevelopment being put on ice for 12 months if it means Springsteen is back in town.
