They won't expand the other two corners on their own. The problem on that side is the railway. They main stand doesn't have a top tier, it is still the same size as it was when the ground was a 45,000 seater built up to the same height all the way round. If they decide to rebuild it, they will either do the main part of the stand first, and the corners afterwards, or the whole thing at once.

Bah - other stadiums that are far less well off have expanded over roads and railways - Manchester United being the worlds richest all sports club could easily afford to make the worlds highest capacity stadium ever - hell they have the money to splash out on and build a 20,000,000 capacity stadium and still be a sell out :lol:

I think they will eventually expand the main stand. There were reports that a small expansion of the main stand overhanging the railway were being considered.
In stead of this theyre expanding the corners on the other side getting seats with a poorer view. The reason may well be that they dont want a small expansion of the main stand get in the way of a possible large scale expansion later.

It probably will not happen for years as the board is extremly carefull and want to see years of endless sell-outs before they do anything, but at some point I am sure they will "finish" the venue, getting a 90,000 venue

Planning permission for 75,00 Capacity

I've already posted this in another thread but Just some news for pps who may have missed it.

Manchester United have applied for planning permission to increase the capacity of their Old Trafford stadium from 67,500 to 75,000.
United have submitted their request to Trafford Metropolitan Borough Council to expand the north east and north west Quadrants of the ground.

The PLC board said subject to approval it will decide whether to proceed prior to the contracts being awarded.

The move comes after United conducted a feasibility study into the plan.

Man Utd eye 75,000 capacity

Officials have previously resisted demands to increase the capacity, believing the club's current 67,500 stadium large enough for their needs.

The fear at United has been not filling the stadium for every game and ending up in the same embarrassing situation as some of their continental rivals by having a huge ground which is barely half full.

But every Premiership match at Old Trafford has been a sell-out since the last redevelopment was completed four years ago, giving rise to this latest announcement.

They should just top it up to 100,000 and get it over with. Manchester is sports MAD and you can never get tickets for Man U anyway. At least with 100,000 seats you might stand a chance in hell of getting in. Hopefully??

That looks...well I don't much like it...the poor looking struts that seem so popular over in Europe just don't do it for me...especially when they look so bloated like in this creation.

I can tell you so far that they have done some lower steel work only lower than the first floor. I think they have stopped now untill the end the season.

They've not released any pics of the interior. But my guess is that they'll extend the thid tier and it'll swoop down onto the new two tier corner.

New capacity will be 76,400.
I thought they would be the same size as the upper tiers in the east and west stands.
