What about the old Birds Eye site on Ladysmith Road, before you say its too small,take the time to see how big this site actually is. Parking may be on the streets again (should not need too much at present) there is a cracking little club plus the Honesy Lawyer.

The whole idea of having a new ground is to stop having to park around the streets again! I agree the old factory site would be a good place for the ground but parking would discount it.

I don't understand the issue with on-street parking. Most of the grounds I've driven to that have had a car park (including "newer" grounds like Derby and Bolton) it's taken me absolutely ages to get out of after the match. I've never had a problem getting away from BP, despite ("shock, horror!") staying until after the final whistle. The only time it took me a while to leave was when I parked right outside the turnstiles for the Spurs cup match.

Exactly - so everyone parks on the street anyway because they don't want to pay it.

Is it Wycombe that it takes an hour and a half to get out of the carpark?

Yep but there is a beautiful industrial estate to look at whilst you wait.

I was thinking more along the lines of the Madejski in Reading. They have a huge car park on site and it's a piece of wee wee to get in and out of. Sentimentality about parking on a street is not a replacement for great planning....

Would be awesome under the dock tower.

Loads of haddock all over the place, think fog off the north sea, dodgy prostitutes touting for business in dark corners and lurking behind skips full of rotting fish. Tattooed losers from Cottee's lording it over any away fan daft enough to leave the relative safety of the fentydome.

The opposition would be beaten before they kicked off.


lmfao! it'd be a legendary trip for footie fans. leave as many of the little byways and buildings up as possible so that everyone gets hopelessly lost in a victorian-industrial-maze, with the aded attraction of then having to dodge the under 5's/cbp/ghs  as they desperately try to locate the ground. we could market it as not just a football match but an adventure weekend/bare knuckle ride all rolled into 1

I'm not sentimental about parking on a street, I'm just not a big fan of sitting in a car in a car park for two hours while everyone slowly exits out of the one exit on to a busy road (which is exactly what the design was like for the Great Coates site).
