    This is why I love CharltonLife; all jokes aside, there are often some really interesting gems on here.

    That's a stunning photo, I love little peeks in to North Korea.
    Have you seen the national stadium in North Korea? Staggering

    Capacity of 200,000 people (115,000 seated)

    Yep and all with thousands of its people starving.

    Anyone else think the Spurs capacity is just a direct dig at West Ham, Chelsea and Arsenal? They all have 60000 seater stadiums but the new Spurs stadium will be a 61000 seater stadium...

    The Chelsea stadium looks amazing from the outside, but apparently they'll need to move out for 3 years whilst rebuilding it, where will they groundshare? Fulham and QPR are too small, West Ham is a non starter, Spurs and Arsenal are doubtful too, and I wouldn't want them at Wembley for that amount of time

    Spurs might be playing at Wembley when Chelsea need a home anyway.

    Wembley or Twickenham have been rumoured as the likely grounds.
    Spurs have Wembley in 2017/18. If their ground is ready, and construction seems to be going well, that would leave Wembley free

    Twickenham would be better for the Chelsea fan axe though
    Jesus yeah, thats only next season. Time flies etc.

    Looks like they've made good progress on it so should be ready I'd imagine.

    Is Staggering the name of the Stadium?
  • I like the roof on that stadium, quite interesting looking
  • Chelsea at Twickers has been kiboshed due to local objections. Spurs play all their home games at Wembley 2017/18, then Chelski move in for 3 yrs while (planning not 100% nailed) the new Stamford Bridge is built.

    Spurs have pulled a masterstroke with getting half the new ground built before they move out end of this season. Cams are available all over YouTube and worth a gander.

    Blimey even Brentford are going for it. And i won't point you to the plans for Sellout Park because that always brings a bit of sick to my mouth...

    We have been spoilt with the new Jimmy Seed sign and a training ground less likely to be built than Disneyland Aleppo!

    brentford had to because one of their stands is standing only (not allowed in champ and above) and would cost more to redevelop that due to the fact its smack bang in the middle of a residential area. So made sense to build a new, larger stadium.
  • Seen QPR are planning a 40,000 stadium aswell

    at one point we were planning to expanding the valley to 40,000...

    The '61' is significant as its a permanent memory of the 1961 double winning year.
    It's also definitely a dig at Arsenal though
    I've heard it from someone close to Spurs that one of their key decision makers stated that the attendance had to be "Whatever Arsenal can hold plus 1"

    They were hoping to be the centre piece of the huge Old Oak regeneration development. Got knocked back so are looking at the area around the Scrubs.

    If Levy thought he could build & fill another 10,000 seats, I'm sure they would've built 71,000 seater stadium.

  • Think it's stunning.

    Architects had to come up with something innovative due to the conservation areas around stamford bridge. The way it integrates into the surroundings looks brilliant.

    Imagine what this cemetery would look like if it had a huge steel bowl looming over it.

    image

    Views from nearby streets also show how unobtrusive the design is.

    That perspective makes it look quite good. The aerial shots makes it look appalling.

    Can't be 200k capacity, where are the extra 85k people standing during a game?
  • If anyone is interested in the development taking place at sports grounds throughout the country, the following link will take you through to a good site -http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=661500&page=381 (It's the last page - work your way back for earlier posts)

    (I know, I know - only on a Charlton site would you get a posting like this!)
  • I can't see Chelsea's stadium remaining like that though, once all the commercial branding starts going up all over the place.

    How many extra seats do you think we need? ;-)

    Spurs played their Euro Cup/League games at Wembley this season and had crowds of around 80,000 .. I am staying in North London for a few days and intend to go have a look at the new Spurs ground, it's being built right next door to the existing ground ..

    One hopes that the benefactors,(e.g.) Abrahamovich, Kroenke, Joe Lewis etc. who still support the 'mega clubs' with sweetheart loans and innovative tax schemes don't suddenly die or lose interest and their clubs go to pot .. else London could be strewn with 'white elephant stadia' as Spurs, Chelsea, QPR, Arsenal compete in the first division watched by 10,000 sitting in splendid isolation inside glorious 60,000 seater arenas ((:>)
  • My favourite stadium is the San Siro.

    I'm particularly amazed that Spurs chose to build their new stadium in the same location as WHL - the traffic/parking/public transport is appalling already and will be twice as bad when it opens.

    How on earth will they sell thousands of corporate hospitality tickets especially to midweek games? "Delighted you can attend our box Mr. Very Important Client - just hop on the Victoria Line to Seven Sisters then it's a short 30 min walk through arguably London's most beautiful area to the stadium."

    There are so few decent sites in London. Arsenal were incredibly lucky to find a site round the corner from the Emirates.

    And people from the city will take the train from Liverpool Street to WHL station.
    There's strong talk of a new 'spur' of the Victoria line, up to Northumberland Park on match days. There's already a tube depot there with the lines, its just a matter of building a station.
    Oi leave the train talk to us Charlton fans.

    I still call it Park View Road - but you're right, it's beautiful

    Drove past it today and it looks like White Hart Lane on a building site.
