Diddy out of interest if we stay in league 1 will there be a stage where you’d be disappointed?

AFC Wimbledon will one day reach the Premiership. It will happen one way or another. How many ever thought when we were in the CCL that we would one day be in League 1 but it happened.

Secret Agent agree and that gap is also maintained by the parachute payment system that protects all but the utterly incompetent from dropping further than the top half of championship. But honestly as a fan owned club, is there any way we could even get close to being in a position to challenge for promotion to EPL?

To be clear I want to remain a fan owned club
I don't think I will live long enough to see us in a 20,000 stadium.

The gap between the PL and everyone else is huge and getting bigger, even compared to the biggest clubs in the Championship. Even if we got to the PL, we would have a degree of time to get the stadium up to 20,000, but I doubt byy tht time we would survive more than a season.
Where can we see the revised stadium plans? Anyone got a link?

I’m also now wondering if we don’t ever need a 20K could the effort be made to create a sit at the front stand at the back stadium that caters for the 10K or similar we’re more likely to need.

that is what I am slightly nervous about OI - when will we ever need a 20K stadium

I predict we will have a 20k stadium by the time we host LV-426 for the right to play FC Alderaan in the final of the Intergalactic Champions League

I imagine anything permanent would fit into the overall stadium design so move that part of the stadium to the full capacity. The other issue is that we can only build from inside after the first stage so the equipment needs to be brought in by removing a temporary stand (presumably including finishing the main stand if that isn't part of the initial build). I think the easiest access is via the away end which would suggest that would be the last stand to be made permanent (conjecture).

that's what I am thinking Lurker - and as REPD says a replica of b'mouth's ground is more than adequate

If we’re honest is there anything in the real world to suggest we will ever need at 20k stadium if we remain as a fan owned club?

OI - makes sense but are they removed when we increase capacity or can we potentially have a 9/11K stadium with no temp stands

The temporary stands would be removed entirely to allow permanent stands to be built. The temporary ones have far less in the way of foundations and structure which is why they can't be terraces.

...or are we going to increase capacity anyway

so are the temp stands in place until / if we increase the capacity ? what happens if we don't ever need to increase capacity ?? do we end up with a Gillingham away end scenario for ever

Lurker - the temporary stands will have a large concourse area behind them, once a permanent stand is built it will fill up the whole space.

Lurker (again) - would guess that the seats would be rebanked within the shell of the ground, making it steeper but extending the capacity in the process

[146.lo.gg.ed] 
Could be totally wrong though
Lurker - I believe so.

Shame we're not going to be playing Bournemouth any time soon, because that's an excellent example of how a small, basic stadium can be good to watch a game from. And as for their car park...
Apologies if this is obvious somewhere but I’ve never seen it. How is the capability to add 11000 more seats achieved. Will the stands be changed or are there blank spaces or something else?
