• Please Mind the Gap

    Perusing NSC I noticed the subject of the gaps in the back of the South Stand have been raised again.

    Given the amazing season ticket sales for the 2011-12 season, many are expecting formal announcement of the expansion of the Amex to be made quicker than was probably envisioned when building of our amazing new home began.

    One thing I've heard, and it may or may not be related to that hulking big gap on the right of the image below, is that expansion plans will include a mezzanine level of sorts in at least one of the corners and that level might include some extra corporate boxes. The first phase of the Amex's more plush facilities were snapped up almost as soon as they went on sale, and it's likely the club has further demand waiting to be satisfied.

    The Amex we all walk into in July and August is a wonderful, beautiful place, but I can not help but wonder what the finished article will look like in a few years from now.

    Could the Albion really be playing Premiership football in front of 30,000 - 35,000 people in the not too distant future? Tantalising thought, isn't it?
