When I look at this I imagine this is what Eisner and co have a similar idea for the north stand and this “walkway”

Back in the day, the City Ground was slightly smaller than Fratton Park. The site, though, seems considerably bigger in area than Fratton so there must be a much better range of options there.

Saw a European Cup SF against Cologne (3-3) at the City ground. Really wet night. The ground hadn't seen any development then. Behind what is now the Brian Clough stand (opp the TV camera.position) was a quagmire. FP was in those days a better ground. Behind the main stand is a car park. So never as closed in as Fratton.

Looks pretty impressive & something for Pompey to aim for if we can get back in to the Championship.

does sound like the sort of thing our owners are aiming for long term, but it will take time and patience

I don’t think the Eisners will build a new Milton End or North Stand unless we are in the Championship at the very least. It just doesn’t make financial sense to spend all that money when languishing in League One. All this talk of building a bridge from the station to the ground is just smoke and mirrors IMHO.

Interesting the Club have not mentioned an extension to the Fratton End? There is 13m behind which can be extended as part of the Tesco deal. I would have thought this would have been a comparable if not cheaper option than a new Milton End? It would also placate the fans to have another 1,500-2,000 more fans in the ‘hardcore’ end of the ground. Or perhaps this space could be used to build corporate hospitality boxes the Club so desperately needs?

Does anyone know if the Club have undertaken feasibility studies of the various options available??? I suspect not!

I don’t think we ‘desperately need’ corporate boxes and we certainly don’t want them in our ‘end’. Sacrificing atmosphere for prawn sandwich eaters is not a clever move imo.

I’ve just watched highlights the Middlesbrough v Hull match, played in their Riverside Stadium with vast swathes of empty seats and zero atmosphere. How they must yearn for Ayresome Park.

New is not always better and it is always worth being careful what you wish for.

Still, I’m sure their corporate facilities are very nice [xx(].

The Riverside is a great example of how not to design a new stadium and of how not to build one out in the middle of nowhere.

New stadiums are great if they're done right. The Riverside is just one example of not doing so.

Ex-gaffer - there are big financial benefits to improved corporate hospitality. Particularly when trying to attract sponsorship from big blue chip companies. This would be a major income generator for the club on match day, more so than any other. Funds received would add significantly to our coffers to improve all manner of things at the club from player recruitment, academy to infrastructure etc. What we have now is nothing short of a joke. Where we build corporate hospitality is irrelevant, it is a much needed right now, especially if we want to play in the Championship and beyond.

Corporate is a financial necessity in this day and age unfortunately.

They're a bit like 1st class/Business class on planes whereby selling those seats breaks even on the cost of flights and all us common plebs in economy are profit. That being said I wouldn't put them at the back of the FE. That's the main stand and people who like to sit in corporate tend to like a side on view. We need to get a gobby bunch in the Milton end again for an atmosphere boost, but that's a different matter altogether.

I now live in Parramatta just west of Sydney. The Western Sydney Wanderers in the Oz A-League play here. They had a decent stadium shared with the Rugby league club. 2017 they knocked the whole stadium down and rebuilt a new stadium on the same footprint. I went there last week, (Yes - I was wearing my Pompey shirt) and the ground is fantastic. Clear view of the pitch from wherever you sit.
Sorry to say but having a pillar in the view of the goal when in the North Stand at Fratton was not the best.
There is a promo video of the company that built the ground (link attached). AND before anyone say's it, there are still plenty of old boozers outsdie of the ground if you want a drink in there before the game. Interesting to note that it was mainly built by locals.
Generated some jobs in the local economy....what's not to like?
We could build something similar at Fratton. Just have to play our football somewhere else for two seasons.
As for the football it's XXXXXXe. League 2 standard at best. Slow, shocking passing, control, defending...it really is that bad. And this is the top division!
