Swansea, Hull, Reading, Brighton. I don't have the data to back that up, just from memory! New stadiums sometimes work as a catalyst

True. In my head I was thinking of the Pox as being more like other small clubs like Shrewsbury or Colchester though where arguably the new stadium bounce hasn't happened.

I respect them for going back to their village roots though.

But Oxford have already had their 'new' ground.  Regardless of ground ownership, how can you objectively argue that building a 2nd new stadium in just over 20 yrs is in any way sustainable environmentally?  It's the very opposite of that.

That's really out of town, like us moving to RWB.

Same distance (just over 4 miles) from the centre of town to their current ground.  Realistically, you're never going to get planning permission for a football stadium of that size any closer to the centre of Oxford.

I’d imagine a roof would become a step nearer when the club have the sanitary and catering situation sorted first. A low slung roof wouldn’t take to long to put up and, and it is a big and, that would become a priority if we could achieve back to back promotions. It is not inconceivable that season 23/24 we could be in the championship and filling the ground as it is with 15,000 every home game.

Just be a carbon copy of the Milton End at Fratton Park won’t it if it happens outside a full redevelopment. A ‘Cheap’ steel frame with couple of central pillars lobbed over the existing seating.

Thought you meant us for some reason!

But even then I think, certainly attendance wise they were mostly similar.

So salty…

We’d love a new stadium or even anything remotely close to improvements on ours.
