    Maybe it's just me but I grew up on the Kippax from the mid 70s, but really wouldn't want to go back to those days, it wasn't all it's cracked up to have been. There is probably a half way house but that's more to do with safe standing than cost.
    Different generation too, my son loves going to games but he's also happy to miss a game if there is something else on and misses his October game to see the NFL at Wembley. Young people have many more options than we did in the 70s. For me then it was City and Rock gigs, that was it.

    Top of the South Stand for 16 quid per game. Brilliant.

    It doesn't look like there will be any shock factor with the new plans, it'll be a Uni, a moderate shopping facility and a hotel. And the stadium will get a North Stand extension eventuallu. In 20 years time, all we'll notice is the car park has gone and possibly the ASDA but the general feeling I get is we the fan won't be using any of these new buildings...

    oh i'm not saying return to the un safeness of football back then.

    But its working with safe standing in a lot of countries.

    Celtic have just got safe standing for a section of their ground.

    No idea, what's happened to Worsleyweb he seems to have dropped off the planet with info on the North Stand Extension, the mate I Know who worked on the South Stand and had pretty accurate info has also not got back to me, looking like it's not going to happen at present.

    Reason being no need as City are having a struggle to sell out games, sorry if it upsets some but its true.

    Unless the club is going to make a new mosaic, the North stand isn't going to be expanded anytime soon.

    Manchester City name Etihad Stadium walkway after ex-council chief Sir Howard Bernstein

    “Sir Howard Bernstein’s passion for the city of his birth, combined with his unrivalled vision, humanity and humility, have undoubtedly helped to shape Manchester into what it is today."

    Struggling would be somewhat of an exaggeration - Build it, price it right and it will sell out (See West Ham)
