|"A VIEW TO 'DIE FOR'!---BUT NOT FOR MUCH LONGER!"|
("Errr! --The groond that iz!--- not the lassie on the billboard!")
News that plannin' permission haz been given to yet more student accommodation in the car park below St James' Metro station, meenz that wor beloved groond will vitually be suroonded by high rise buildings, obscurin' the view from Gallowgate!
However!---we are told that this WOULD NOT effect any expansion to The Gallowgate End, shud the club decide to build higher at this end of the groond and make it the same height az The Leazes End opposite!
We sincerely hope that this IZ the case az 52,000 iz isn't even big enough for Championship games! (season tickets are gannin like 'hot cakes' az we speak!)
When I waz a young kid in the 1960's (many many! moons ago!) the groond held 60,000 and this would be the ideal capacity of St James' Park!
Lets hope that this eventually happens to give us an even better stadium than we have now!
