    Corners

    When we originally laid plans for the stadium, it was to be designed in such a way that seating could be put in corners. Was that the case of did the plans change? At the time it was to raise capacity to 30k for european championships should we have got them. Anyhow, it is early days, but if crowds continue to climb, is it something to be looked at again...and not at expense of players please RP

    Sadly I don't think there will be a need for us to fill the corners in. Sure we have the fan base but unless we challenge for honours against the ugly sisters consistently then we will not need more than current capacity. Let's be honest, since the new east stand was completed we've sold the stadium out twice.
    Its Liam Henderson to deliver...
    And David Gray has scored! The captain!
    Hibs are standing on the brink of history!

    IMO it would probably only happen if we averaged 19,500+ per game

    If we were allowed to make it a terracing, fairly cheap and charge a tenner I could see it doing well.

    I agree. Very expensive. And we don't have enough fans. Plenty spaces in the south on Saturday

    Build one corner at the Dunbar end and only allow the Huns that bit when they come then rain all sort of $#@! down in them and see if the SFA turn a blind eye.

    If it was to be done then there's no reason it needs to be done all at once.

    I'd start off with the space between the East and FF.

    I see a joint venture with the Hibs Supporters Club moving there in the space beneath the stand as new club rooms.

    Obviously there's all sorts of implications and complications but none should be insurmountable.
    Space to let

    Only threw it out there partly to find out if we stuck to original plans and secondly because I'm trying to be over optimistic. I could also be controversial by saying an extra corner at away end might also bring in more cash. The cost of building extra stands might outweigh the benefits of course.

    Saturday was a little odd as in there were tons of spare seats...guess loadsa people are on holiday

    Would we even get planning permission now with the housing in behind us?

    Always feel like I remember the council causing us problems when we went to build the east, or some sort of issue?
    Cause we waited too long to start maybes?

    Fill the home corners and put screens in the south corners :

    The only way I can see it happening is if Scotland get a major tournament and it is paid for us to raise the capacity up to around 25k
