    That is utter twaddle. There is a long tradition of building stadia in towns and cities. Just look at the London teams, look at the Liverpool teams, look at Newcastle, Sheffield United, Bradford City, the old Derby County, Leicester and Sunderland grounds. I could name dozens more.

    It's only recently that clubs have moved to the outskirts, traditionally they have been close to the centre of town.

    I agree that cost of real estate is high now and that's why out-of-town developments are more attractive...and why Falmer is the only answer.
    Although in this case the Albion would be following their own tradition, as the Goldstone WAS an out of town stadium. However, that is of no relevance to this discussion.
    When Steve McQueen met The Blob, he tried to kill it. It probably never crossed his mind to try and take it out to a restaurant.
