Bums on seats

Interesting that the day after we got the stadium nod Karren Brady and co were talking about installing retractable seats, which would surely solve one of the major problems of the track dilemma. We do after all have £95 million to spend, a £40m loan from Newham, £35m from the government and £20m from the sale of Upton Park. And retractable seats are surely the solution. Seems like we've got a £500m stadium for comparatively little expense.

The major issue is can an extra 25,000 fans compensate for the loss of intimacy at Upton Park (assuming we fill it). Surely they will make a lot of noise and if we go into it with a positive frame of mind then maybe we can match the atmosphere we created at the Millennium Stadium…
