Your Views - 'The Ground Move'

Here's what our members have said about the potential ground move.

'It looks like the club really are serious. A 10,000 seater does surprise me a bit though. Unless we have some serious partners lined up (Uni, Co Op who else could be?) the cost of building a stadium like that is going to be huge.'

'10,000 would be about 2000-4000 too much, even if we were in League Two!

As I have said on other threads, don't look at the impact on other clubs for guidance, it HAS to be tailored for Lincoln and I just don't think the demand for conference/gym/restaurant/bar is there for us as there is already so much of this within walking distance of the town centre/train/bus station/uni/college.'

'Honestly the insanity of a BSP club planning a 10,000 seater stadium on a 15 acre site. It's like there's a massive assumption that we're just going to get back into the FL and be successful once we do. This league will be like quick sand to get out of. I guess the only positive on the timing is the state of the economy and the price of doing this is only going to go one way in the years to come.'

'Even in our L2 playoff years 8000 capacity was enough. Week-in-week-out 6000 would be enough for L2 and probably L1. A well-designed, smaller stadium would be a much better option than 1 10,000 seater that would spend 99% of it's life only 20-30% full.

We should be taking this opportunity to further 'cut our cloth', not in grand delusions.'

'I thought the newer design grounds were built smaller but with the easy capability to add on capacity if clubs are successful? Unless there is not much difference in paying for a 10,000 seat stadium initially I would have thought that would be a good way to progress. The focus needs to be on the money-making activities for the development, at least in the short-term to ensure the club's viability.'

'I appreciate the need to grow and develop, and the fact that a new stadium will bring in new revenue streams and help us in the future, however, for two seasons in a row we've been treading water in the BSP. If this continues, then there's every chance that in the next however many years it takes to build a new stadium, the BSP has a strong year, with loads of former League clubs and bankrolled small clubs, and we go down. I'd wait until we've had at least one good season in this league, and shown that there's any chance of us progressing and getting back into the League in the near future, before I'd even think about building a new stadium.'

'NO OPEN STADIUM, PLEASE!

10k wouldn't be *that* bad if the main stand i.e. where the dugouts are has a busy design with boxes, media, directors area etc.'

'I'm all for ambition, but off-the-pitch ambition must be matched with on-the-pitch ambition, or we end up with the best facilities in the BSN or below. I'm not one of those 'get your cheque-book out Bob' people,and so I'm not talking in terms of splashing the cash to get promotion, but look at our League placing, and the fact that the manager who got us there is already being talked about as staying on.

Where's the ambition there?'

I'd like a new stadium to be unique and not look like any other stadium. I'd also like it to have no open corners because it doesn't help the atmosphere.
