from what I've read the cost of their north stand is around 1m, 450k funding they received from th efootball league development fund plus the crowd funding.  I can't work out though if it's a full rebuild. But it will be 1,600 seats.

When the future of the club was in doubt last time and previously "we" couldn't raise that much.

And neither did "they"!!

There's a world of difference between throwing change in buckets and a bond scheme like the one they have done. They have only had "over 200 contributors"........minimum investment was 500 and some have put in 25k

After seeing 1000 spare home seats for our biggest home game of the season, is anyone really still pushing for a larger capacity stadium as a priority?

Maybe if we didn't keep employing crap manager's like Page and Edinburgh more people would turn up. Full houses when Wilder was in charge.

Towards the end of the season when the extra seats were put in.
A lot of people don't regard Posh as a Derby game any more. 
MK  and Oxford are a bigger draw to a lot of people.

Yes of course we need a bigger stadium. You cant rule that out based on having 1000 empty seats (250 of which are reserved for partitioning) for a bank holiday fixture and having lost every game of the season to date.

Actually it was more than 1000 as we game Posh 400 in the East Stand as we knew we wouldn't sell them!

So can you explain why nearly every professional club in England has a bigger ground than us?
Using your logic we should take some seats out, thank goodness nobody takes any notice of your nonsense

My point remains!
Sixfields is an embarrassing non league s***hole that is forced to put a restrictive entry policy to ensure only full paying regulars get tickets to the bigger games  by having data based only and zero family concessions and that unfairly  penalise loyal fans turning up on the day with a  whopping great 24 admission fee...
Your point just like kelvins remain b0ll0cks.

build a bank of 3000 shared terracing up behind the south stand paid for by, assuming the present powers that be are broke arsed speculators or haven't the stomach or the will to do anything of use, it could be financed by multiple season ticket sales giving great value/ frozen prices to those paying up front. The slack from future seasons will be covered by the extra footfall from both home and visiting fans attracted by a more welcoming fair priced professional atmospheric ground.
It really is that easy in the real world free of hidden agendas.

KT has mentioned a redevelopment master plan with the Chinese. If this doesn't come to fruition we'd be mad not to look at the crowd funding route via Tifosy. If Stevenage can do it so can we. Again though it's how long is acceptable to wait for 'concrete' news on the East Stand and surrounding areas?

There's definitely a master plan with KT and the Chinese but I'm pretty sure it doesn't involve building any football stands.

Yeah the way he's been talking down capacity increase so much I doubt the plan includes this.

Bump, this doesn't deserve to be on the third page of this forum until we have a fully completed East Stand.
