Aren't they still records even with Maine Road demolished?
Leeds had taller floodlights at one point so that went, we had the widest pitch in the prem at CoMS until they standardised the widths and we used astroturf around the edges.

The 1930–31 season was Manchester United's 35th season in the Football League. At the end of the season, United finished last in the league and were relegated to the Second Division, having won just seven games all season and lost all of their opening 12 fixtures.

Apologies not PL
Along with the lowest average gate in the division of just over 11k which was lower than Grimsby Town.

Probably, I wasn't serious, but united liked to sing about it.
They did indeed... ‘cos City are a massive club. According to this (and other articles), last season we had the largest pitch, however Leeds now have the largest pitch.

They standardised pitch and even grass lengths 4.5 years ago, bar the clubs with pitches smaller the standard like Liverpool Everton and Chelsea, so not sure what they measure now.

At 250ft high, the tallest floodlight pylons in Europe - Leeds U****d's Elland Road.

It's a long way to go and see Blackpool Tower.
