Wont they have to replace the wood frequently as well?

I know they're enjoying their best times right now but they're such a gimmick it's hard to take them seriously. I'd hate it if I were an FGR fan.

Dickheads, surprised to see there would be 1700 car park spaces.

Expected these whackjobs would be dictating that people can’t drive to the game, sooner these vegans get back to non league the better

Nicky Adams to be seen a club geographically close to Bury soon, Salford City.
Turns out he signed for Northampton, who also signed Steve Arnold a keeper from Shrewsbury aged 30, Adams aged 32 and Alan McCormack aged 35, they are going for experience this season it seems.

Not wrong per se but FGR building a new stadium, made entirely of wood.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-gloucestershire-48525858

Not showing a lot of ambition as only 5k capacity.

Not good for away fans....there will be no pubs and chippys that are close to the ground...like the Lawn... Smiley

I assume its capable of expansion if required?

Surely that would be a fire risk?


Not really, timber framing is used to build a hell of a lot more than people realise these days, it can be coated to be incredibly fire retardant, although not sure where this stands on the whole 'green' angle of the proposal?

Wont they have to replace the wood frequently as well?

I know they're enjoying their best times right now but they're such a gimmick it's hard to take them seriously. I'd hate it if I were an FGR fan.

See answer above well specified and treated timber will last for years and years, probably longer than much of the steel and plastics used in other new builds.

As for the gimmick idea who knows, from the way people go on on here I would imagine most of our fan base would love an owner to be throwing money at the project gimmick or not?

Now confirmed that Coventry fans will have to travel to Birmingham to watch their team's 'home' games next season.

Oh, and Loftus Road has a catchy new name: https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/48544778

Admire the sentiments behind QPRs stadium naming.
Sod being a Coventry fan, first Northampton now Brum, I imagine their forum must be close to reaching our FB group for  negativity

I think that's a bit harsh on QPR, the sentiment is a nice touch as is putting it out to a supporter vote?
