    I'm sure they are excited mate ...

    ... just saying the gate size obsession seems to be from Newcastle above all other clubs.

    Is that extension just on one stand or all the way round? It looks great but it also looks bloody expensive if it's just the one stand.

    I didnt know about Leicester's plans so they have been relatively low key. Newcastle fans would be shouting about it from their crumbling rooftops.

    Not really a surprise, we both cling to it as we both have very little else. They get the bigger crowds so crow about it more. It's the one thing both of us can be proud of when neither of us have much else. I'm sure if Leicester were getting 45000+ despite being average prior to their recent successes they'd be telling everyone about it.

    In the voice of Crocodile Dundee, that's not an extension, this is an extension...

    Pretty sure if you lived in Derby and worked with Leicester fans you'd know about it

    Yeah maybe. I'd rather have 25000 and have won the league and be playing in Europe.

    In the Premier League, 48000 every home game would still have us as one of the best supported teams in the country.
    We've seen how **** it looks with a half empty ground, so I totally agree mate keep it the way it is , no point having a ground you can only fill if barcelona or real madrid are in town and look half empty even when your getting 40k+ in the Premier League

    And under Reidy in particular it was ****ing bouncing when we were playing well. Get the ticket price point sorted, food, drink, fanzone, and a few other things fixed and our match day income could exceed what others with similar crowd sizes would get.

    How big is our potential fanbase in the North East if we become successful? Are there areas that are split with Newcastle that we could get back?

    If things are right on the pitch and somehow we manage to do what Leicester have done and sustain it. We would defo fill 66,000 playing top teams every week and challenging for trophies.
    There are a few club in the country that could do that, however I believe we are one of them the knars

    Think kids are very fickle and would support any team that is doing good, it’s the Durham area that would be affected if we had a minimum of success

    Digressing slightly, but I watched the Chelsea game earlier and apparently Luton came out after half time around 5 mins late because the clock in the changing room at the Chelsea spa health center place where they had to be was incorrect. Now, we can all have shiney new stadiums and academy's and stuff but for a premier league team live on tv that seems very amature to me. That was one of the things that I was impressed with when Johnson came in when he pointed that out about replacing the batteries in some of our clocks that were broken.

    I guess what I'm trying to say is that there is a bit more to it than saying "my stadium is bigger than your stadium" :emoticon-0102-bigsm

    Don’t want them back thanks. The 30k hardcore lot who go now are all we need.
