I think United could do with a brand new stadium. It'll be difficult to expand, they could probably afford to do either anyway. But I think a club as big as them should have better than Old Trafford.

Why?

Once complete it will be the largest stadium in Europe (until Barca upgrade).

It has history.

Looking nice on the outside is anathema to the true roots of football.

Any other reasons? They could landscape around the ground but it is all about the 90minutes not the stadium.

Fair enough. I know old trafford and anfield have their history but i'd expect world class teams like these to have world class stadiums, anfield especially is far from it at the moment and OT has been eclipsed by other stadiums around the country. I'd think old trafford will be redeveloped completely again in the next 20-40 years though.

The South Stand expansion will no doubt happen to reach 90,000. Importantly that will have a massive corporate upgrade as well...but since United are way ahead of any other club on these metrics it is hardly pressing.

Maybe we will clad the stadium like Real & Barca keep talking about. However, the cold hard cash needed seems to delay that actually happening- Real are selling the rights to fund their's.

I would rather United had 100,000 bare concrete seats than worry about the design.

Have you been in OT? stared up at a full North Stand- it is truly impressive- remember that stand is comparable in size to Milan or Barca and with the roof hunkering down- it intimidates. Makes the view crap from the back but down at pitch level the stands appear to be falling on the pitch and direct the noise well as well.

Never been sadly. I have friend who is a united fan and has never been so when Wolves get back up, i'll probably go with him and my Wolves match buddy. He can sit with us Wolves fans though

Safe standing in the Stretford end could push capacity to 100k if you needed it. A lot on the Molineux thread would like safe standing in the South bank if we eventually get around to it.

The hotel looks better than I expected though, dunno if the other side is the same but I actually quite like it.

Manchester is a city on-the-up - quite literally - and I'm sure that it's just not me that feels proud to live in Greater Manchester. It could do with a bit more decent Indie Music coming out of it, however as infrastructure projects go, we're not doing badly.

With more political powers coming from Westminster (a place that once annexed us), Manchester will be able to actually consider some of the transport proposals that VDB comes up with (only kidding ).

When you think about it... Manchester is the city to look out for in the next 10+ years!

Metrolink Expansion, Second City Crossing
New light rail line | City: Victoria to St Peter's Square

Length: 1 mile | No. of stations: 1 new, 2 expanded | Developer: TfGM

Current Status: Under Construction

Thread: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...#post120762125




Fantastic pictures by Freel07 showing the route of the new tram line through the centre of the city.

Midland hotel on the left:










Where the tarmac here is will be a new expanded station for St Peter's Square:








The tram will run down this street:








And then down this street:







Through here:








They'll be a new station - Exchange Square - here:








And then the last station on the Second City Crossing is here, at Victoria - which is currently a huge building site (microchasmic of the rest of the city at the moment, incidentally).
