    I’m excited, all right don’t get worried, it’s just a supporter’s excitement and this time it isn’t even over Vincent Kompany or Zaba!! So there’s something new! You should know me by now, I get excited at the slightest thing............. not that Vinnie or Zaba are the slightest things, but I'm old not dead!!! :-)

    Anyway, along with a group of other fans I was invited to the stadium to view the expansion models and discuss what the plans for the fans are going to be when they get planning permission. The images of how the stadium will look are absolutely fantastic and of course this will mean more season tickets. The plan for the season tickets is with a starting price of around £299.

    It will give people chance to add friends and family to the waiting list so that you can all sit together if you want to. When you register your/their names you get an allocated number and the sooner you register the higher up your number will be. Then when they start allocating the new season cards you can either accept the offer or, if you want to wait a little longer for some reason, you won’t lose your place on the list you will be re-invited for the next round of offers. You will have to put a deposit down for the number of people when you register but that discourages time wasters I guess, although that wasn’t how it was put across.

    As I say I am excited about how this looks as if it's going to pan out. It’s obvious the club is not just saying, 'right this is it, take it or leave it,' they are canvassing views from supporters and they are listening. Supporters wanted cheaper season cards and they listened and are working on it, supporters wanted to move and sit with their friends or family and they are looking to help people with that.

    It's a good omen I feel. Well done City. IMHO

    I got the impression they are hoping to 'forge ahead' (my words not theirs) as soon as the planning permission is granted. So I guess within 12/18 months?

    Thanks for sharing Eccles Blue.

    Sounds exciting. :-)

    Did the club mention, or did anyone ask about the possible relocation of the away fans?

    The question was raised jrb, but nothing concrete yet, there are so many agencies involved in something like that I guess?

    A few questions I hope you don,t mind EB
    I assume it's 3 tiers all the way round.
    Were there any corporate boxes behind the goal .
    Will there be changes made to the outside of the stadium, i.e. the main entrance.
    Cheers

    Would love a safe standing section in the first tier of the south stand.
