That'll only happen if the directors fall out, over spend and sell to tescos

Which directors where did that?

Yes, and has also been said many times before, they should lock the gates, throw the key away and start again from scratch instead of trying to turn Headingley into something it can never be, a decent modern stadium.

Rich coming from a wigan supporter,a team that sold there tip of a ground to tesco because they were skint and jumped into bed with a football club. Laughable.

What was best for the club!!!

Disagreeing / fall out = terminology of words......All 4 boardmembers couldn't agree...... so fans decided to vandalise 2 of the directors homes.

its an absolutely awful ground and should be consigned to history.

Genuinely laughable comment. Have you ever been in the real revenue-generating parts of the ground?

I disagree. Does that mean we've fallen out?

As usual on here,people are clueless as to the difference between Leeds Rugby and Headingley Experience - Headingley Experience,turns over and makes more profit,than all but two SL Clubs do in their entirity.Ignorance is bliss for most of you.

well you thought wrong if the tickets are for the western terrace can they not go to another part of the ground to view the game although of course they can walk behind the north stand to the bars ,club shop or to the ticket window to get an upgrade to seats .
away clubs sell tickets for the western terrace and also the north stand section close to the western terrace but many is the time i have seen away fans stood in the south stand with no problems at all in fact at times its a bit to overcrowded with bradford or wakey to be honest but hey who cares.. have you never noticed the amount of leeds fans who stand on the western terrace which would seem to disprove that its only for away fans.
if you want tickets for the carnigie stand book them from the leeds club .
ah a sunday night in front of the telly watching old rugby league games.
does life get any better .

I have to admit,I would have thought that there must be an archetectural solution to the Western End,particularly bearing in mind,what Yorks CCC got away with,with their new Pavillion.The issue,is the houses behind the Western End,but I would have thought a relatively low rear to any Stand,with the roof then slanting upwards towards the pitch,must be possible,if not in keeping with the Carnegie Stand.A good environmental architect could even devise some sort of 'green' roof - nowadays,the roof could effectively appear as a green meadow,with flowers!

Carlsberg don't do Soldiers, but if they did, they would probably be Brits.
