    Had no problem at Maine road. Got the 108 bus down princess parkway to northernmoor. Only problem was the horse and carts and omnibuses.

    That's a great idea. You could extend it to Ashburys Station and connect with the people who get off there. Then on to Belle Vue to connect with Hyde Road buses, and at the other end to Cheetham Hill Road to connect with the Bury and Blackley buses. You could call it something imaginative like "The 53 route". (Yeah, i know it still exists but it's about every half hour at best instead of every 2 minutes as it used to be when buses were run for the public and not for sheer profit.)

    Was using Google earth to look at a site in Manchester today and noticed the disused viaduct at Ardwick that joins the goods line that runs north to south just West of the Etihad Campus. If this could be rebuilt then Manchester would have a loop line through both main stations which would be ideal to take fans to and from the ground. It would also ease congestion on the tram system in the city centre. Sadly it also looks like HS2 will pop out from it's tunnel and go straight through the viaduct on its way to a new platform near Piccadilly. Seems a sad waste of an opportunity.

    There seems to have been a glut of concerts at the stadium this past 3 or 4 weeks. Ed Sheeran, Taylor Swift and now Beyonce and Jay Z. I presume that, with us not owning the stadium, we get the square root of fuck all from these events?

    Really? I'm pleasantly surprised at that. There must have been a dozen concerts in the last month or so.

    We have a finance lease on the ground which is the same as owning it. Income is received from events like these and expenses are incurred for it's maintenance/expansion.

    Even better Ignoring the obvious seats behind the stage, there'll be no empty seats at the concerts.
