Above is how I've previously voted, today I voted Yes again. I've always been favourable to the move but after visiting the place, there is no doubt I would like that to be our future home. Yes there is the debate about the conversion and whether there will be retractable seating, but the place is fantastic, and I trust that it will become a home (and lot's of that depends on how we make it a home).
For me the devil is in the details. Sure, it's a fantastic stadium, and sure, it will a wrench to leave the Boleyn.... I can see the pluses and the negatives. I guess I'm edging towards favouring the move
But until we know, for sure, what is going to happen around such issues as retractable seating/distance to the pitch and what we plan/are allowed to do to make it our home, I'll have to stay sat on the fence
I have been inside and I voted "No".
Not currently fit for purpose as a football stadium in my opinion. Fear the worst after the initial honeymoon season when the novelty wears off coupled with the fear about what attendences would be like if we should get relegated again or if the tv revenues dried up with perhaps the top teams forming a European breakaway league and us being saddled with a large rent.
In a nutshell not convinced by the stadium in its current form and it is a huge risk as a lot of hardcore regulars will walk away.
Sorry boss, I think this poll is as pointless as the rest. Until we actually get the full details from the club no one can make an informed judgement. Whilst I can say I want to move there from my experience of the Olympics I won't be going over there for the Olympics and neither will 200K+ people per day that made that experience what it was.
I doubt this will be the last poll as there is still a long way to go before (if) we move in. The plans have yet to be released, the completion of the stadium, lots of things yet to happen that can still change peoples minds either way.
voted undecided and i dont understand how anyone can vote other than this or no as we don't know the full details yet. looks like from the number of people voting yes, so many people have fallen for the clubs spin and how great it is going to be. Show me the concrete plans and most important the retractable seating and il seriously consider voting yes
