Suggestion on there that the Holte will connect to the Witton in phase 2. Given the police box is going, possibly likely?

Probably a little hasty with what I was saying.

"Design and Access Statement Part 1" on page 2 is the document with all the good stuff.

EDIT and part 2, too

Yes good info there but current 21 home matches increasing to 23; what's that about?

Bet we end up annoyingly short of 50,000 for every official attendance.

This has been my worry all along. I'm going to be checking the returns as often as Wilma. I wonder if any bookie will offer odds on an accumulator of Villa to lose/Son hat-trick/crowd between 49,900 and 49,999.

When was our last 50,000 + crowd, out of curiosity? West Ham Boxing Day when Dennis Mortimer signed? Or maybe some Man U/Liverpool/Small Heath game after that?

Man Utd, season after I think.

I think I remember the number -50,084? But strangely canít remember if it was red or blue filth.

Answering my own question, it seems to have been 50,084 for a 2-1 loss to Small Heath on 18th September 1976. Unless there is some friendly or other match I'm unaware of. How many were at the Rangers "friendly"?

Edit: you got the number, impressive stuff Percy. We got 48,439 for the QPR League Cup SF the same season and 49,619 for Barcelona a year later.

One thing I will say, it is fucking massive.

It's clearly not being done on the cheap - there are various bits in the design statement where they show the various options for things like cladding, brick work, other materials and the relative cost, and there's not even the slightest whiff of cheap-arseing, it's all top dollar stuff.

The brickwork and the floating roof look great.

A 50,000 capacity stadium in the Championship...a bit unorthodox but probably the best chance of silverware that we have.
