I once drank an entire cup of the coffee served at Hamilton’s New Douglas Park - frankly, I think a trip to Aberdeen’s proposed new gaff’ would be less dangerous.

No cake?

Unless Davey C pays for the lot it’s never going to happen 

And Dave is pretty generous when it comes to the dandies but I canna see him forking up £80 million 

I’d rather we reconciled the fact we are staying at Pittodrie and focus our efforts on modernising the stadium 

They’ve been speaking about a new Aberdeen stadium since Scotland’s Euro 2008 hosting bid ffs

Sick of hearing sound bytes about this pipedream tbh

If the beach is no longer an option then we should be looking at redeveloping Pittodrie one stand at a time over several years.

I don’t buy any of the “European games in Dundee” “12k max capacity” crap that Milne was feeding us.

Then we end up with a shiny but still shit stadium like Hibs. Cant imagine it will increase turnover much because the seats are shiny.

Thin we would manage to get alot funded through grants and investors. the biggest problem I see is that it wont cost 80m by time its built it will probably double that. Makes it even less likely.

What grants would you get that would pay for even a fraction of it?

Never understood why there is a fantastic brand new conference facility miles out of town only accessible by corporation bus and why nobody thought to look at these things together.

I like going to Aberdeen. Regardless of the result, the trips up there are usually among the highlights of a season and me and my mates normally make a weekend of it.

An out-of-town stadium would probably not knock the Aberdeen weekends on the head, but it's very likely we'd just not bother our arses going to the actual game. f**k that.

But the model for the new stadium was just a dull all seater load of shite, so shiny seats. How would that increase revenue? Why do folk in charge of things in football continually ignore what fans want?

Interested to know why an ‘out-of-town’ stadium would bother you so much you wouldn’t want to go and watch your team?

It'll be maybe a one-hour round trip from the centre to an area with nothing really there to pay thirty-odd quid to watch the Scottish Premiership?

Not interrupting a good weekend away for that. I think there'll be Aberdeen fans who come to a similar conclusion.

No surprises.

Hopefully can still get the land for it although now it will be owned by Aberdeen FC than the council

Unless anyone is a subscriber to the P&J, that article can’t be read.

The club have planned to include a standing area for years, which would be more suitable than the standing area with seats that they implemented at Pittodrie. Cormack has consistently said that they’re looking to spend a bit more to have better facilities which would generate more income.

Typical ACC.

It really is 

Who knows what goes on behind closed doors but you’d think the council would say something like “we’ll put, say, £15 million towards it and we would like x, y, z”

The short sightedness consistently shown by c***s like Ian Yuill really do sum us up as a city in the last 30 years 

Aberdeen still has so much potential but we drag our feet on absolutely everything

I regularly travel a three hour round trip so to me location doesn’t hugely matter

It's not really the distance so much as the inconvenience and mode of travel. At the moment for Pittodrie you jump on a train and walk to the ground. The idea of adding some sort of shuttle bus or similar shite is more than enough to put people off.
