All Jeff Shi said when asked about the redevevelopment was that the focus at the minute was on the team. Righty so, but as with the situation a few years ago, the money for the stadium doesn't reduce or affect the money for players which a lot of Wolves fans thought it did.

Potential developments around the stadium.

How the stadium would have looked if built to the Steve Bull standard:

Shame the improvements next season of the video screens and fanzone don't include a new Steve Bull stand too. Fosun, maybe the season after?

I think they are waiting until we get promoted before they start work on the Steve Bull. Our attendances aren't high enough at the moment to go down to three stands.

We're averaging 20k now in the Championship, we can afford to go down to three. It seems illogical to me to wait until we are in the Premier League when the crowds come back before we demolish one.

A 3 Tiered Steve Bull, double the sized Sir Jack Hayward and finally some filled in corners anyone?

Knock down the north bank too and build a entire new stadium. Like Spurs' new ground but 10k smaller.

They want to keep the South Bank single tier, which is great. But ultimately I think the design had to change because of the Molineux Quarter proposals, it doesn't make sense to have competing elements etc.

I think we'll see the Jack Hayward retained in the long term and a three tier Steve Bull, plus a huge Southern kop.

This all relies on us going up, of course, but as it stands we're favourites.

By the way, Steve Morgan has said that under his reign they were horrendously close to having to demolish the Molineux and move to North Wolverhampton (probably i54). It was only the council's last minute grant of a 999 year lease that saved this gem, and also made Wolves more appealing to Fosun.

This! Not sure where we would play our home games for a season though. Our Champions League games can play at Wembley though

Thanks. Normally, talking about the stadium be redeveloped equates to the team becoming mid table again, and fans slating us saying the team is priority. It's not a crime to want both though?

Little trivia, but Wolves once hosted the world's smallest Nando's (not sure when). Gives a clue as to a potential tenant of the Molineux Quarter.

The 900 seat temporary Graham Hughes stand could be rebuilt for this season following Saturday's record-since-1982 attendance.

Would certainly be useful for the stadium expansion.

No it's not and you'll probably go up this season anyway.

Looking good for Wolves.

Even if we don't go up, attendences this season have been great, breaking modern records, so we may see work regardless.
