i still believe we could fill a 80,000 seater stadium for every match no problem. i was there last saturday and i know the amount of people looking for tickets even though we were playing italy. and as for next week. imagine if another 30,000 odd came on the market. how long would it take for them to be snapped up!!!

Hope the Wanderers Bar (Tudor style cottage) is relocated on the ground

I have also been wondering what is to happen to the Wanderers bar and the other similar clubhouse at the other end of the ground. I don't really think that they should be relocated within the ground as that will more than likely be a farce. Either they are incorporated into the scheme of demolished! I would prefer to see them kept. Does anyone know what the plan for them is?

Jaypers ...don't speak too loud of them. If word gets out that they may be demolished and the Green Party hear of it they'll be up there barricading themselves in.

You can only chain yourself to a tree to be a true Green Party member. I think the Greens would be quite pro Landsdowne on sustainability grounds. No alternative site can offer such ease of connection via sustainable transport modes such as walking or Dart. A bicycle park and a fruitjuice bar and its sorted :D
