    Statement of Intent

    It is clear that TB isn't in this for the short haul or, necessarily, to make a profit out of his ownership.

    It's fairly clear that he sees retaining Premier League status as vital and it follows that they'll be ambitions beyond this going forward.

    With our ground capacity set and limitations on the transport infrastructure what do we do next? Most "established" Premier League clubs have looked to or expanded their grounds and 60k seems to be the target, so would it be possible that we'd look to move again? I'd guess we'd never be able to expand The Amex on the current site to anywhere near 60,000.

      If you think we would get attendances around 60k per week you are deluded.

      I was hoping for mid table finishes and decent cup runs. Not 60k stadiums.

      "Most established clubs"...that part of what you said is obviously the next step. We are not established yet. One step at a time.

      Think success on the pitch might be the priority first.

      You don't need a 60k stadium to become established in the Premier League, and frankly it'd require a sustained period of success before we'd be able to fill a stadium that size on a regular basis anyway - if you can't fill it it isn't worth spending the money on building.

      If they are your expectations, I would suggest you prepare to be Tim Under Whelmed.
