yep thats the situation as i understand it too Blain, they are waiting on a decision to allow them develop an all standing terrace at that end of the ground bringing the capacity to 82,500. Currently they have permission for a seated terrace which would leave the capacity at 79,000.
The stadium does look great, although for some reason the roof of the new Hogan Stand does not meet that of the Canal End and sticks out quite a bit further, i assumed they would meet exactly, as is the case with the cusack and the canal end, maybe they mis-calculated?? or maybe they were just trying to ensure that the big wigs in the posh seats in the hogan will not get wet 🙂
