Cheers Gaz always a pleasure.
A crowd is a crowd and as for away fans they too may be more likely to turn up if the stadium is easier to get to and more comfortable with better amenities. Those 10K moments against Leeds may have included 2,000 Leeds fans but what price both more Cas and Leeds fans attending a decent stadium.
Sure the purists say don't rely on "away" fans but the reality is they count, and the Hull clubs are literally "down the road"
Now not sure how often you posted when Newmarket was given the go ahead, but I posted plenty about this being the big club the region needed. I also feel that if Cas and Wakey get the grounds they will restrict each other, but the harsh reality could be Cas get the ground and Wakey get relegated.
You should perhaps revise "No way on this earth" and take into account the scenario above. L'Ange predicts no calder club in SL in time, but one in a new stadium has to have the potential to grow big.
As for dreaming and hoping I dream of a 20,000 stadium and a rally of fans of all three clubs coming together under one banner with the aim of putting the crumbling past behind them and joining forces to smash the Hull's Leeds and Wigan's.
But the site is for lively debate on the realities, so I will leave the fantasy stuff to others.
Finally you blew it at the end with the admission you would "worry" if Wakefield were revived with a smart new ground. care to share the worries with me?
Yeah no problem parky. My worries about wakey getting a new stadium are obvious really. Wakey as massive potential to be a super club in our game alot more than Cas and Fev. I just feel if wakey get Newmarket it will destroy Fev and Cas (obviously not make them disappear Etc) but I just feel this new ground could be the kick start wakey need to become the super power they should really be. Wakey as been a sleeping giant for far too long now and I just feel it will only take a little thing like getting a new stadium to put this sleeping giant back on the right track. I like ange believe if wakey don't get their ground all 3 could be in the same league soon as Cas rely on Fulton too much and he won't be around forever. Wakey getting a new stadium really fears me for my club. But for the game it will be tremendous. Cas getting a ground won't make me worry as they haven't got the potential wakey have with them just being down the road from Leeds. I honestly do think in the next 5 years Cas will get relegated with or without a new stadium. But I feel wakey could go 2 ways one where they get their new stadium which I believe over time will make them a super club. Or secondly not getting their stadium and all 3 will be in the same division. Like I've said wakey are the sleeping giants of the area not Cas or Fev and the day wakey turn it on is the day Fev and Cas need to be very scared.
