  1. Directors terracing being added at Headingley in the North East corner. Weren’t included in the original plans
  2. Hopefully Wakefield get to redevelop Belle Vue then. A stadium should only have been built at Newmarket if Cas and Wakefield were to share it
  3. Didn’t they build that big freezer at the Newmarket site?
  4. Does look great full, better than I expected it to be
  5. The front rows of the old North stand always got wet but if I had the choice I’d rather sit in the South Stand
  6. Update on Headingley north stand (credit Rhinos Faithful on Twitter)
  7. Ah right thanks. Will be interesting to see what they do with the space where the floodlight columns were
  8. What is the official capacity? I’ve seen 19K, 20k and 21K which is it? Anything under 20k would be disappointing
  9. I see no reason why Leeds can’t have a pop up shop in the city centre maybe at the start of the season or before Magic Weekend. Why did they stop having trophy ceremonies at Millennium Square?
  10. Yeah I like the Gilbert Brutus. I’d like Leeds to do what they’ve done there with the corner. Could done the same between the Carnegie and SS
  11. Yeah I kind of see where your coming from. I mean for a ‘new’ stadium it’s still unique it’s not flat pack like Widnes or Leigh but no new grounds have the same character that Wilderspool, Knowsley Road or Central Park had. im happy enough with it, I’d have preferred the South Stand to be just standing but I do like it. My only real complaint is they haven’t expanded the capacity to 25k but the club seem content averaging 15K a season, which is still great but why can’t they average 20k
  12. I’d hardly say any of the stands at Headingley are basic. There’s great corporate facilities in the Carnegie stand and there will also be in the North stand. I’m pretty sure a lot of lower league football clubs would love to have a ground like Headingley. As for the atmosphere the stands are closer to the pitch and the whole stadium is squeezed into a corner rather than Huddersfield which feels very open
  13. Lots of grounds have open ended away ends, Wheldon Road, Belle Vue, Odsal. Apparently though Leeds are in talks with the owners of the houses behind the stand. I understand they are concerned a roof would obstruct their light (even though there’s those big trees there) but that’s just what I’ve heard, could be BS
  14. Hope so with all the history Headingley has and now with the new facilities ect. I think Headingleys capacity is 21K, the John Smiths Stadium is 24K so only 3k difference but I think a sold out Headingley would look and sound better on TV and in person than a sold out Huddersfield
  15. I suppose it’s better than Wakefield, Cas and Bradford but it’ll be as good as St Helens and Warrington
  16. Does Clipper still sponsor Hunslet as well?
  17. I’m slightly annoyed that ‘LEEDS’ won’t be spelled out on the seats
  18. Plus there’s the public right if way they’d have to move. I cant see it ever happening. A roof over the stand is more realistic but I think there’s an issue about the houses getting less light. its not worth debating tbh.
  19. When I first read this I thought it said it’ll have a massive cock ?
  20. Why would they move? Caddick bought the club with a view to redevelop the stadium. If they moved then YCC would have moved to Wakefield. The city of Leeds makes a lot of money from test matches at Headingley. Being close to the city centre is better than being on the outskirts, they’re in and around the fan base, not forgotten about outside the city.for example: I live in West Leeds, if they built a ground in East Leeds I’d have to travel across the city. It’s a lot easier to get to Headingley than it is to the other side of town. People like to go out into Headingley and Leeds before and after games So yeah, for some clubs relocating is good but I’m Leeds’ case there’s no need. Why move for the sake of one stand? Boca juniors only have 3 stands ( and none of them have a roof!)
  21. Where in Leeds would you build a new stadium? Headingley is in the perfect location, close to the city centre and has lots of pubs and bars nearby.
  22. Put it this way, away fans get to look at a shiny new stadium while home fans have to look at the western terrace. I know people troll about it but if your being serious what can the club do? There’s a public right of way which rule out expanding or building a new stand and there’s houses behind it which makes it harder getting planning for a roof. And yes Leeds are a rich club but they don’t have a bottomless pit of money they’re not Man City who can just throw money at a problem and make it go away
  23. I’m sure I’ve seen plans for a roof over the western terrace. I don’t think it will hspppen anytime soon because of recent redevelopment and the houses behind the stand.
  24. The South Stand will be officially opened on Boxing Day. The North Stand will be completed in May The cricket WC starts May 30th
