Like has already been said on numerous occasions, this is verging on the impossible for a number of factors that aren't financial. 

You mean so you've been told?  Hearts got told the same a good few years back.  They saw the plans for murrayfield for what it was though, a chance for the owner to make money.

Well, it's certainly deterred The Rangers...

Oh we have recovered now, now we have a beautiful completed stadium and a fucking brilliant football side.

Correct.  Aberdeen are about to become everything they hate about the St Johnstones of the world.

Pittodrie is a dump though and their trainings facilities are an actual embarrassment to the Premier League.   It must be hard looking at other clubs who have completed their 20k plus stadiums and have invested in their own training facilities and not get jealous so I can see why they may be desperate for a slice of the action.

Mcdiarmid Park is probably going to be bang in a local community within 20 years with all the redevelopments going on.

This is literally why we're doing it

Not sure why Hibs fans are so angry about the concept, however

Cove will be getting a big boost with all the Aberdonians going along to support their local team*.

(*They have their own troubles of course, but I'd wager their ground getting sorted before AFC's does)

Quite an insight considering construction on Cove's ground is already underway and is due to finish at Christmas.

So where in the city could a stadium go?

Did they ever consider the huge swathe of grass at the top of King Street just before the river? As someone who rarely makes it up for home games nowadays I realise my opinion on the matter isn't that important but must admit I have my doubts about moving to a soulless arena in the middle of nowhere. It was always a good day out going for pre and post match drinks and walking to the ground. If they really must built it in the middle of nowhere then the stadium itself needs to be built without further compromising the atmosphere with shallow stands etc to appease the locals.

It's pretty tough to label a stadium 'soulless' when it's only ever been seen on paper. As far as I'm aware the club tried on several occasions to procure land from the near vicinity as a site for the ground and were rebuffed. The one advantage of moving out to Kingsford would at least be having a half-decent training facility and everything there. It's not ideal but I don't think it's going to be as bad as a few folk think.

It's not really.  It's away from the life and soul of Aberdeen.

It's not anger mate it's baffling.

Why haven't you sorted the training out about 10 years ago when everyone else realised that sharing facilities on council pitches (aye the ones that don't like you) is shite? We built our own 10 years ago,  fantastic completed stadium too, why didn't Milne build you boys one? Our club did.

Not recently because it's been hosting Championship football.

 

Sorry, didn't you see in when we knocked you out the league cup a year and a half ago? Or when it hosted the recent Scotland match? Apologies.
