I don't get the love in with steep stands. Think of the away end at Newcastle, think of the Top Balcony. How is being miles too high from the pitch make it intimidating?
Think of the songs that fans bounce around to, can you imagine doing that when excessively steep? Imagine the mad Riley ons from the Lower Gwladys St after a goal when each row is two foot above the one before?
I know what you mean but Newcastle for example is only that big as the tall stands are only on two sides.
If those two tall stand profiles were replicated on the other sides the capacity would probably be 70,000.
You're always going to have a fair few fans miles away in those capacities.
Given that ours will be roughly 55k, with no discernible gaps (I.e in the corners, a church etc) you'd assume that most seats won't feel like they're miles away.
