It's a perfect example of how cheap we are isn't it? 

Yup. And how bad at investing to build a new audience.

With regards to Headingley: it is both an excellent facility that is right to use *and* the lazy and obvious choice.

I pointed this out to the Official Wolves twitter feed when they were moaning about having to stand uncovered.

From their very own website.

You can lead a wolf to water but you can't make it drink 

I guess you can soak the wolf on the Western terrace if it rains though

So apart from your opinion of the WT what is wrong with the other 3 stands?

I'm not a Leeds fan, but aren't the reasons for the non-redevelopment of the Western Terrace obvious, with the houses right behind them. Wakefield have the same issue of their "away" end, but with houses of a slightly lower value in North Wakefield than North Leeds!

Yes ,but not only that it's a matter of cost I think those two stands cost about £ 40.000000

Has anyone mentioned the Western Terrace yet?….

I was just wondering…

"When I saw the Pistols and The Clash I realised it didn't seem that difficult, they didn't seem like they could play very well either, so the thing was to form a band then work it out. We didn't even know who was going to play what - we passed around all the instruments until we found what we were comfortable with. I wasn't comfortable with any of them so I became the singer."

There's also a public footpath (granted a bit of an assault hotspot that shouldn't exist) that would have to be considered.

If the Headingley Development had not been in The City of Leeds there would not be comments about the WT

Who do you support?

Anyway, there are allocated spaces in both the north and south stand just buy one of those if standing on the WT annoys you, its not difficult.

I think the point is that its not the best rugby stadium, 3 stands are good, one side resembles a war zone

And the point is that even with the open terrace its seen as the best purpose built rugby stadium when you add in all the facilities.

If take headingley with any of its shortcomings over a identikit stadium anyday of the week.

’best’ is of course subjective

3/4 is ok

Other clubs have 4/4 

Therefore Leeds are 1/4 from ever having 'the best' facilities

It cost an awful lot more than those two other clubs and the roof didn't blow off either .

I think this anti Leeds thing is because it's a City

I never really understand 'identikit' or 'flatpack' as any kind of criticism of a stadium.

Its just a way of describing stadiums that don’t have a lot of character, history or individuality, and that’s not really a big criticism, saints and wires stadiums are great and its a real credit to them that they were forward thinking and got them built, Im just glad Leeds decided to rennovate the old stadium rather than move, which I appreciate wasn’t probably an option for some clubs.

but with that came comprising in places such as the WT.

I really like what Hull KR have managed to do at their stadium aswell

I'm not sure I see character in knocking down three stands and replacing them with 100% brand new buildings, and leaving an old one there.
