Other clubs ability to earn more money should be a massive concern. It’s no coincidence that clubs with higher capacities have great ability to generate more match day income than us, and that’ll always be the case if we don’t at least try and match them at some point.

No its not a massive concern, most of the clubs with higher capacities are making it through being bigger, more successful clubs so able to charge more and get better sponsorship deals, are in London, or as in the the old White Hart Lane made a fortune off all the corporate hospitality. Spurs had a smaller ground capacity but thanks to London prices, decent sponsorship deals and lots of corporate boxes were comfortably turning over more money than us. Basic bums on seats don't make the big difference to clubs ability to make money and the club will have worked all this out before deciding on the capacity.

When Spurs finally decided on rebuilding WHL 4/5 years ago we were their equals pretty much on and off the pitch there’s now a massive gap between us and them. Unless we look to close that gap ourselves with forward ambitions planning we’ll never succeed, in fact it’s only likely to increase. None of the clubs above us are likely to regress we need to improve ourselves and having a stadium that matches the top teams is part of that.

Ambition shouldnt be something we fear we shouldn’t simply accept our position below these clubs because we won’t just stagnant we’ll fall back and be over taken eventually.

You don’t catch people up by putting in more seats my mate.

More seats might be needed if we catch up.
I knew that someday I was going to die, and I knew that before I died, two things would happen to me. That number one; I would regret my entire life, and number two; that I would want to live my life over again.

Perceptions key.

You can’t go round telling everybody you want to be challenging the big boys when your building a stadium that’s only pulling you on par with mid table rivals or ambitions upstarts.

And again why not plan to be successful? Why just accept what we are now? What we’re capable of now?

We're building a state of the art 200+ million pound stadium and people are complaining about 3-8k friggin seats.

Much rather they deliver a 52000 waterfront stadium, than promise 60-6500 and it fall on its arse a la kings dock.

at the end of the day it’s still a massive step up from Goodison, in terms of capacity and facilities.

It’s not the capacity of the stadium that creates the atmosphere, it’s how full it is.

Can’t believe people genuinely think we will fill 60,000 plus. The tickets aren’t gonna be as cheap as Goodison

Think there’s an argument that the atmosphere could be improved by removing a few thousand tbh

Tickets should remain around the same price if they want the ground full

You’d expect they’d be more in line with the PE as opposed to Gwladys St.

Otherwise, yes I’d imagine they’d be similar.

Income increases will come from more hospitality seats etc.

If there was zero chance of expansion I’d agree it’d be a bit low, ambition wise.

As it is, if we do well over a number of years, we’ll have a) the need and b) the means to do so.

We’re not as big a club as some of our fans seem to think.

I can't hide my disappointment about this at all

Didnt mean to like that, what the fuck did you think we would get ? 52,000 with an option to upgrade to 62000 is absolutely perfect .

Oh again, no way did I mean to like that, meant to say you are so deluded it’s embarrassing.

Won’t we have the same capacity as Man City near enough, and the shite, oh and more than Chelsea.
