It's quite simple really. When the entire stadium is replicated block by block numerous times it's going to lack imagination. Very similar to a council housing estate. The same house built hundreds of times serves its purpose and houses people but lacks a soul.

It would be nice to have a stadium that gives its visitors something to explore. Not just to visit one section and to know immediately that the block in the opposite corner is exactly the same.

So, I would like our new stadium to be a bit more creative than that of an identikit bowl.

and also that the complaints come from fans being pissed off visiting these types of stadiums when we go away, let alone having one at home every week.

Ref the cricket club they are willing to relocate elsewhere if they are given better facilities but their problem was the the cricket 'bed' or whatever you call it has to have x amount of time to bed in so they would not want to up and move tomorrow if they was given somewhere acceptable.

A lot of this also depends on how amenable the council are as well with there be only 1 vote between the tories and labour both parties will have to be smoozed to get anything through planning and also local residents need to be satisfied it will not affect them.

The word you are looking for is cricket square and square's typically take 4-5 years to bed in and play consistently well. Hampshire were heavily criticised for how the Rose Bowl played in it's infancy.

I think another potential issue is that the Pavilion building is listed. Might need to stay up and carry on being our pre-match bar!

The pavillion building can be moved though, as long as it is not demolished it is not an issue

Pick it up and stick it in the corner of the Bank and the Arkells. Like at Fulham.
