    There was a glimpse of the new stadium on BBC News at Ten last night, (in an item about knife crime in London)

    The screenshot doesn't really do it justice, but it is SO imposing. Dwarfs everything around it.

    Fill them up with a tv screen that moulds into the gaps

    They should fill in the corner,s....too late now!

    Is that a dividing wall between the east and south stand? Looks like it but what for?

    The rake of the south stand is different to the rest.

    Mmmm not too cool!
    I,m sure it will be alright match day and maybe create some extra noise.....

    Alternatively pull it down and start again.
    Get those corners fixed with extra seats and line up the side stands with the South Stand

    That's what makes this stadium stand out and differ from the generic bowls! All the stands are different, and this makes it a lot less sterile. It's pretty much the whole point of the stadium! Because the south stand is a single tier, the rake has to be different. It's impossible to line it up with a 3 tierd stand, and to prevent people from falling down to the other stand, you need a wall. It's pretty basic stuff.

    The fact the corners ARE corners makes it even BETTER! Full bowls are bland and blasé!!!!!! This is edgy intimidating and brilliant!!!!

    i'm getting worried. We are getting used to playing at Wembley, especially for the big games, that the new stadium - might be too small ??

    I bet it has been designed so we can easily add a fourth tier, even though this was officially denied during the planning process (to assuage transport concerns)

    No, another tier can't be added. And it's not only because of transport. We're right on the limits of the building site. It can't be expanded, and there is no reason to make it any bigger either, as we don't need it. Add to that, even if it could be done, adding another 5-10k seats would be so expensive that it would never be economically viable.

    so are the east and west different?

    also has anyone got that that graphic which shows how much closer our stands will be to the pitch compared to wembley and the emirates?

    Someone on the radio last night said that they had heard that we will be playing at Wembley next season as well because the new stadium will not be ready to move into

    I reckon we could easily hang a 4000? seat shelf above the single tier stand if we wanted.

    I like the design, tight corners like the bernabau and a single tier like dortmund.
