Villa Park redevelopment


Recommended Posts

I had the pitch thing explained to me properly tonight! We didnt lower the pitch last summer we are doing it this summer

We've signed up to use these fancy electronic advertising boards that the TV companies somehow project localised sponsorship on to (so if you watch us in the states next season you will see different companies to those fans in the stadium will see) they need to be 200mm bigger for them to work, they cant raise them because it will block the view of the people in row 1 so they are lowering the pitch to make it work

Could that also explain why the pitch has been below normal standards this season?

If we are having major work done at the end of the season going the extra mile this season might have been seen as a waste of time and money?

We were going to replace the pitch last summer, it'd reached the end of its natural life. They cost a couple of million quid or so to replace and the day Doctor XIa came over to look at lots of Villa things and think about where his money was going to be best spent, the pitch won Championship pitch of the year. On that basis, he decided it could wait.

I sat in the Lower North for the first time in years. What an absolute dump. I'm not sure what the lowlight was, from the grubby exterior, the Ryanair legroom, inadequate catering, or the only sink in the gent's being 20cm away and slightly lower than the nearest urinal, so you can't wash your hands without a cock in your peripheral vision... 

That thing being demolished can't come soon enough

The north stand is in bad need of development but that won’t be looked at till we ever get to premier league which is a good bit off

This drives me insane. 

I always find it very difficult to piss when there are grubby hands being washed in my peripheral vision. 

If you're not paying attention you'll find yourself washing your hands in piss.

Those people should be careful which hand wash they are using, whether its liquid yellow, gooey brown or silky white

Has apparently made the shortlist for stadiums for a UK and Ireland World Cup bid though its one of the smaller grounds on the shortlist. 

I wonder would we upgrade the stadium if we received approval

We probably would, but I'm sure we would get games given there are no stadiums in the Midlands that are close to our capacity. So all we need is to be given the World Cup, as Theresa May would no doubt say "simples". ;)

Villa Park has been chosen to host some of the Rugby games for the common wealth games in Birmingham.

I'm of the understanding a new north stand will be built and that we'll get funding to help with it.

I Heard a while back we were getting a nice chunk of cash for improving the stadium for hosting the commonwealth games, still 3 years away but its all gone quiet over there as they say!

I think Dr. X was going to use that money to improve the stadium with a theme park 😉

To be fair they haven't even awarded a contact for the actual games stadium rebuild yet, we are probably well down the list for our lick of paint and jet wash of the North Stand.   Expect an announcement about 6 months before the games are due.

Sadly, I'm pretty sure that's not the case. I don't think there will be a new North Stand while we're in the championship.
