Roker Park photo

Only for the memories. Some of us remember being in there with 50k as recently as 1980. It was sad as fuck seeing it crippled by cuts and a capacity of 22k by the end.
Murray should have developed RP into a 32000 all seat stadium.
I'm sure it could have been done and the atmosphere would have been class
 
When was this taken?

I'm sure I can see my dad in it with his back to the Camera.
Queuing for semi final tickets in 92, about 6am when they opened the turnstiles early.

Would have shown no ambition though, any level of success (even in this league ffs) and we would be sold out. Imagine the ticket prices in the Premier if there was 15,000 on the waiting list?

The footprint of the modernised Stamford Bridge hasn’t changed much, they had the room to be able to do it.



The same really for Molineux.

We could have done what they did for Anfield and buy up the surrounding streets, but with buying those, demolition costs and then rebuilding it would have cost about 5 times as much as it did to build the SoL.
What a great picture of old SB.
Wonder how many sections of the open end we had 85?
Section near the new stand was kept empty iirc.
Looking from left to right, after the section kept empty, I reckon we had the 2 big sections next to it and maybe the 2 smaller sections tho might have been just 1. Could easily have filled 2 more sections as coaches were stopped and turned back apparently.
