Reading plan Madejski Stadium expansion
Quote:The current plans allow the club to expand the Madejski Stadium by more than 50%, to increase its capacity from 24,500 to 38,000.
"Everything has to be considered," added Sir John.
"It's important we get the squad right, we've got a great facility here already and the more we progress, the more chance we have of staying up and moving forward."

Oh the difference....

If they expand to 38k and drop back down to the championship, would they fill it? Would they fill it for every game in the prem next season even?

Suspect the answer would be a no.

No suspect about it, not a chance they would fill it.

but at least they have ambition and intent, something we are very sadly lacking.

If KOKO were to come out with a statement like that, it would be decades before anything ever happened. I bet the Mad Stad is refurbed and increased a lot faster than Bloomers ever would - just look how long it took to fill in the SE corner

He is still partying with his rock band.

They wouldn't fill it and probably wouldn't even in the Premier League. They will still be better off for it in the long run though.

RE: Reading plan Madejski Stadium expansion
just seen this thread ...
Reading FC haven't forgotten these plans, but relegation was a bitter blow. The 5-year Zingarevich plan meant getting to the fringes of the European competitions. But obviously now behind schedule.
However, there are lavish plans for new Academy premises, with various pitches and one playing surface of near league standard - just for reserves.
Regarding catchment, it just depends what Oxford and Aldershot are up to - if they remain well outside second tier level, the immediate prevision is 25,000 fans minimum per home game even if remaining in the Championship - we're the only team from Berkshire, and only second tier side in whole of the Thames Valley and west till you get to Wales ...

Technically I think I wasn't 'bumping' it again, 'cos I'd just seen it for the first time ever! I'm confused

And ... that was a bit of a trap - you did previously write "Wheres Daibo when you need him?"
And when I respond ...
Trying to get ye old mate in trouble, eh? shame on you !! Epicfail
