To challenge in league 1 and achieve a few championship seasons is all most of us wish for.
For us to get there would require having a 12000 stadium minimum build up over that old 5 years using as many sustainable methods ever known.
I believe a club built up gradually by a chairman who is happy to  work hard with the town and clubs supporters to build things in stages would gather more sence of belonging, momentum and feel good factor than a rich sugar daddys play thing, losing a bit of obsene wealth before they die.
Thankfully the days of property developers rocking up are in the past as we're  no longer are burdened with excessive cursed sixfields soil😂😂


What does that even mean?

No idea. Particularly when the owners do still own the leases for all that excessive soil.

Im assuming  the very thing that had kept us mothballed and stood still these past 20 years whilst a succession of chairman fought the nbc for control of land leases has now come to an end?
Its all been dished out/ taken back/ gone and our club can now regroup without this lost enabling oppertunity and start looking at another way forward, of which theres still plenty.

In what way do you think a X2 bigger atmospheric stand be more non league than the current little bus shelter sized stands that is such  a turn off for people visiting Sixfields?
Genuine question.
Adding seats doesn't increase atmosphere. A fully finished stand, either all safe standing or all seating, will look a much more professional attractive proposition  (although personally I don't think the current stand / ground turns people away nor do I think a new stand will necessarily attract people).

What I'm really struggling with is to see how a half and half stand like you have suggested will look anything other than tin pot, that's why I asked for examples of other stands so I can see what it would look like.

Assuming NBC gets its legal act together quickly we can stop floating ideas about what Sixfields could be with the right backers and level of investment and bear down on KT for hard information on what he intends to do, if anything.  Over to you KT.

Firstly its not important to have an exact copy of some other clubs ground, infact you hear a lot of fans not liking visiting identy kit or lego esque stadium such as little sixfields, so it doesnt sell its self well. Some originality would likely attract more visiting fans.
  I suggested  a new 12 row extention behind both goals that are a safe terracing, many fans mainly older wish to remain seated so need catering for, so leaving what is there in situ makes perfect financial  sense.
This way gives the ground a professional outlook and feel with a far greater atmosphere that will in turn attract more supporters and increases capacity to above the much needed 12000.
The funding of this would still require getting in some investment, sponsorship,  long term multiple  ticket sales and most importantly the full support and help of our catchment makes this  very acheivable .
Doing nothing for another 20 years isnt an option any more.

I'm not looking to copy a ground, I'm not a huge fan of the lego esque stadiums either, I much prefer old traditional stadia that are about to fall down!I'm just not very good at imaging how things look so was hoping for a similar example as, like  I said, I cant see it being an attractive option

Do you actually believe that? You're a bigger wind up merchant than me😂😂😊
Wilder used us as a stepping stone to escape oxford and re group, those star players rebuild their flagging careers at our shabby un ambitious **** hole in hope of a move to those progressive clubs we can only hope to emulate..
Major changes needed, and the belittling needs to stop
Hope that helps.

   

It’s my opinion and sorry do not share your cynical views on CW etc. Your ‘crusade’ on the ReDev and this subject ranks of psychosis problem. If it helps see a Doctor.

You detect wrong Evers. Just picking up on the Knibbs part.

Alan Knill was great!

The idea of extending behind both goals appeals to me and surely must appeal to most on here. Safe standing/rail seating would be a great way to go. Still aesthetically pleasing with the current seats remaining intact and thus would attract fans who like to stand safely and legally. When Sixfields was built we were told it was a case of ripping off the roof and building back to extend so the costs would be less than a complete re-build. 12 rows of 100 (I think the North and South Stands are only 100 seats wide) = 1200 additional capacity in each stand taking us up to the 10,000 mark with over 2,000 for away fans in one stand. Finish the East with the boxes and bars to generate income on non-match days too and the ground will be ready for a sustained spell in League One and a cheeky push for the Championship.

Say what you like about this thread, it is a laugh. You’d think after 1,000 pages there wouldn’t  be so much confusion? Personally I would like to see a miniature version of the Juventus Stadium with around a 20,000 capacity. No point in spending a load of dosh and then having to redevelop if we were to make it to the prem? Corporate boxes with high end catering, an adaptability for concerts (given the proximity of the MI) and all of the high end paraphernalia that’s associated with a development of this nature. A bit of standing to generate some atmosphere is a great idea? To repeat, just need to sort the minor technicality of finance and Shangri La shouldn’t be to the detriment of the team or the long term stability of the club? If we all agree with this in principle, can I suggest we move on until such time as we are in a position to pay for it?

You obviously dont attend matches so not much bothered if we were rot forever more in a tiny ground that is strangling the life out of our club.
All this mini Juve ground utter nonsense😂 does nothing to help but give those whose interests are better served excuses  to avoid the issue.
We have to offer up workable ideas that we can all agree on and push hard for, so any suggestions mini Juventus stadium or stad mk will end up with us getting the grand sum of nothing😂😂

I think the level of finish, interest and build quality should mirror that of Puskas Akademia stadium just on a larger scale.

May I once again ask that this topic be closed until there is some actual news or someone has something sensible to say. It will save a lot of time.
