New Stadium Approved

Ive read it again, Council will already gain from the stadium being built in city. Aberdeen will gain having to pay less for stadium but not overlay comfortable with the council getting half the gate for example. The council would gain far more from a deal like that long term than the club would. Just spent 185m on the new AECC why wasn't there a consultation on incorporating stadium to the plans. 

Who said anything about the council keeping half the gate?

I obviously misinterpreted 1983's post when he said he wanted to split the cost and revenue I thought he meant 50/50.

I took it to mean the council keeping any revenue from council organised events

Think I picked it up wrong. If the council would put 50% into build and Dons could keep all revenue streams they create its would be mad to turn it down. ACC will most probably expect Aberdeen to pay for everything though.

Not even sure that area would be big enough and the traffic chaos it would cause on the boulie its bad enough now with the retail park its a non starter and just the twats on the council coming up with another hair brained scheme to make themselves important ... remember this is the same wifie Boulton who said we should forget the bypass and build a tunnel along the seafront to take traffic through the city.

This will fix it

UTG, underground parking and connections to the bus and train stations. Take out the centre there’s nae enough space. Everyone uses Amazon now anyway.

Maybe nae thought this through properly to be fair.

Keep it in the town centre - Train into town, pints with lunch, walk to the game, back into the pubs to celebrate before getting the train home, what's not to like.

This.  And that’s from someone who the new venue will take the best part of 3/4s of an hour off travel in and the same again out.

New stadium, minimum fuss, great location for leaving after 30 minutes.

Genius idea. 

Coliseum style. 

And newly installed disabled access. 

Sorted.

I genuinely don't know why the old AECC site wasn't considered more by the club. I walk across it fairly regularly to walk along Royal Aberdeen and now that the concert hall has been flattened you get an appreciation of just how large an area it is. Loads of room for a stadium and still plenty car/bus parking, easy access for fans driving from outwith the city/away fans via AWPR, decent existing public transport with 1/2 bus services from city centre every 5 minutes. Couple of pubs in close proximity in the Brig Inn and Black Dog plus opportunity to build something on site. Would've been a no brainer but that ship has sailed I'd think. 

I know it's been earmarked for around 500 houses but with the development on the other side of the parkway and the fact that Bridge of Don is already fucking enormous, is there really need for another development of that size.

Old AECC better than Kingsford but Queens Links area far better than both

Sell the Kingsford ground where the stadium was going to a supermarket company or fast food outlet.

Keep the training ground and the beach stadium built.

Enough supermarkets out here as it is . Build a golf range or go carts, children's soft play centre, whatever  . Club can run it and get the revenue from that

It's hardly the middle of naewie. I live in town, and the Kingsford site is exactly the same distance from me than Pittodrie currently is.

The club board didn't think moving there was a bad idea, and i'm pretty sure they'll be more qualified to judge that than some random folks on AFC Chat

😄

Yeah, they've sure proved that over the years.

Fucking halfwit.

So excited if Aberdeen FC and the Council could pull this off

get it done

Kingsford is a waste of time and will after the initial surge take thousands off the gate.

Looks like there's unanimous support for this? 

Anyone still prefer to move to Kingsford?

Alternatively demolish Pittodrie completely just now and start from scratch.

There’s fuck all fans anyway so could just play at Grotts Road till Covid till fucks off.

If there's a suitable site in the city and its not far from the current site, it's a no brainer really.. yes a lot of time and money has been wasted on Kingsford already but the club's home is in the city proper. Good for the city, the businesses round about and far preferable to the semi rural and less accessible Westhill site. They only chose it because they'd run out of other options.

I was absolutely against trying to redevelop Pittodrie but if this proposal is in any way viable then it has to be pursued.

The prospect has fair cheered me up.

Because I believe that a redeveloped Pittodrie would end up holding at an absolute maximum 15k fans. With zero possibility of increasing it. 

I'm also one of the folk for whom Kingsford would have saved at least 30 minutes travel time to. But that would be of secondary importance if we could stay in the city. I totally get that many more businesses will benefit if we are only relocating a few hundred yards. I'd actually probably just abandon driving up in future and just train it.

Me.  Been far too much fucking about. 

What happens with the new site once everyone starts objecting, or the council gets voted out at an election. 

The only way this would make sense would be if the council are prepared to throw a chunk of cash at the club to do it. But they won't be because they're a bunch of self important busy bodies. 

This fucking stinks. In four or five years time it'll be abandoned due to some shite like the soil not being adequate to support a stadium and we'll move onto a another site, perpetually kicking the can down the road. 

As I said previously, fuck the fucking council, they've had 20 years to try and sort something out. To wait until after we finally have a site and planning permission is fucking disgraceful. 

This stinks of that bint Marie Boulton stirring the shit rather than genuinely trying to help.

Aye but the best outcome for the long term future of the club and its fans is the most important thing. 

Can't see Kingsford happening any time soon anyway. If the council have had second thoughts and it costs is less in the long run then it's worth it imo. 

Why cut off your nose to spite your face to end up with a less desirable outcome?

Because it all seems false. Its shit stirring and/or posturing PR by the council. 

This is Marie Boulton were talking about. She promoted the notion of a fucking tunnel instead of a bypass. 

All she is doing is designed to send a heap of flak AFCs way, as they will take shit form fans for progressing with Kingsford when there was a "better option" available.  But there isn't. It's just some bint from the council sounding her mouth off. 

Ask the council this? 

*Do we have planning permisson at the site? No

* has a feasibility study been done? No

* are AFC getting the site for free? No

* are the council going to cover the additional costs of running the stadium and training ground at 2 seperate sites? No

* are the council going to cover the costs afc have spent on kingsford so far? No

I wait for Marie Boulton to say here's a site for free, with planning permission, plans, building warrrants all ready to go, you can break ground tomorrow. 

Until that day, I will maintain my stance that she's a shit stirring cunt spouting shite to put the club in an awkward position. 

The club have already had to try and play it down whilst being careful to not be seen to say fuck off to a better site, as they know this is shite, but not everyone else does.
