Villa Park redevelopment

Leicester are the latest club to announce Stadium expansion.  They will still be behind us but it puts to bed the idea that it's not financially viable.  Stadiums are being extended or rebuilt left right and centre.

We have this big season ticket waiting list.  Let's see these plans from NSWE brought forward ASAP.

am i correct in thinking any stadium work etc is completely separate from FFP?, so if NWSE wanted they could spunk 100m on the stadium with no come back, other than the cost itself?

£100 million? Pahh, never mind the lose change, NSWE will want to build something that stands out like a unique super stadium that is recognised around the world as the home of Aston Villa. None of your cockney bowls or something that the council knocked out in Manchester or East London. 
 

If we build it, they will come!!

Let’s buy the whole of B6 and build a real Villa Village. Hotel, shops, gym, pubs, restaurants, car parking, railway station, helipad, concert venue. Even throw in a football stadium! Let’s get it done! 
 

P. S. No poxy funfair.

my understanding is that is the advantage of having these horrible identikit stadiums, they're future proofed for expansion, they can just raise one the stands, they dont have to demolish it completely redo the foundation for the additional weight and then spend months co-ordinating how to co-ordinate it all with the remaining structure and make it structurally sound, half the work is already done

they can probably do it for less than half the cost of what we can, maybe more

Yep, you are correct.

Would rather us spend three times the amount and keep a bit of character about the place though than have one of those soulless bowls as our home ground

Surely learnt not to put a current player on the stand.. would like 82’ Mortimer or maybe Kids FA youth cup.

No we'll just remove any trace of he who shall not be named.   Smith can stay. 

Tbh, I imagine one thing the hierarchy have learned pretty sharpish is to not spend a lot of money on decorating the ground to celebrate an individual member of staff. Reckon Smith would be here in a month's time if England came calling?

Hope about legends from the past.  At least they can't bite you on the ass!

Yeah this is where my support is maturing to. A love for the colours, spirit, community, history, Villa Park and playing legends and moments that have become so in the fullness of time.

It’s crazy isn’t it. How an event can reframe your thinking. 4 weeks ago I would have said no. But now, well.

I’m happy though of the modular nature of our coaching set up. Developing an infrastructure whereby everyone is replaceable.

If there's one thing I hope I personally learn from this, it's that as a 33 year old bloke, I shouldn't be hero worshipping some thick chav that's younger than me and who has achieved nothing, because he kicks a ball well. 

I'll enjoy the Aston Villa collective, but accept that individuals, no matter how good, are always ethereal.
