Alternatively, can we just settle on the development with the best prospect of happening which also happens to be in the most iconic location?

The difficulty with Freemo is the number of different vested interests. A development on ABP land would be much easier to achieve in that respect.

If it ends up there it’ll become known as the Kasbah. Inevitably we will have that Clash song for the team to come out to. 😉


Great song though.

What about access?,  There is no access off Riby square,  the only way through is via flyover or through side streets.  Humber street bridge is unsafe.
Huge congestion.  where are pubs and eateries?
Its a no from me


I pretty sure plans will be in place around infrastructure development for access to a proposed stadium.
Parking will be a major consideration in any development.
As food and drink outlets are concerned not every new development has a plethora of "pubs and eateries" next to the stadia.
If you have an alternative development which has all the above already in place please do let us know??

Isn't it strange however no locals even recognise the "Kasbah".
An invention.

Aye. The first I’d heard it called that was in one of those Guardian type articles. My old man worked down there all his life and I’d never heard the term used.

Doesn’t do any harm to have a handy label though.

I heard from my contact before the end of last season that ABP may be involved in the prospects of a new ground but he hadn't been that accurate of late so didn't make anything of it.

I'd be happy for it to be on the docks too, it's only across the road from freeman Street and might open up the possibilty of more recreational development there instead of just industrial, like in Liverpool

Personally I believe it when I see it. The docks or freeman street both have appeal but it needs to be more than just a ground. We need things around it, bars, shops, restaurants. Middlesborough stadium is terrible, absolutely nothing there apart from the stadium.
