SPURS NEW STADIUM
« on: November 22, 2016, 11:00:38 PM »
Never been so impressed with any ground as I am with their new  stadium  if the artists impressions are accurate. Absolutely magnificent !  It will make CC look rather humble in comparison  even if the Riverside does  go ahead. Having said that , CC. is still better and nicer looking  than Selhurst , Loftus Road ,Griffin Park ,The Valley  Brisbane Road and arguably the new Den,
Better than the Olympic stadium  as well - certainly safer !

My Spuds mate used to love coming down to the cottage - he used to call it the civilised face of football

Craven Cottage, the best football ground in the world. And I'm not biased.

Spurs need to keep WHL attractive to lure all our young talent up there, as it always has.

I have been to a few of the new grounds and found them soulless. Bolton's new one especaily so. You can keep your new grounds. Craven Cottage will always do for me thank you very much.

Thank you and good night

I think we're being a little self-delusional here.  The Cottage does have an element of retro charm and the location along the river is a real asset.  However, the view from the JH stand is badly compromised by the pillars and it is an unattractive stand (though not from the Stevenage Rd).  In terms of recent grounds I've visited, MK Dons stadium has an excellent view from wherever you sit, really comfortable seats, lots of legroom, easy access (I don't mean getting there). 

Please note: criticising the JH stand, which is an arranement of bricks, girders, seats and corrugated iron, is not the same as criticising the player whom I saw play on many an occasion.  Other than that, feel free to have a go.

I always thought that the cantilevering of the JH roof would be a priority at the time of the ground improvement. I'm sure that the roof could be supported in that way, while at the same time improving the use of space beneath the stand, which is pure early 20th century with shabby additions. Agree that the gable on the roof and the view of the distinctive rear windows from the rest of the ground should be in the specification. eminently doable, without compromising the appearance of mr leitch's design.
