Craven Cottage - You Want the Capacity Increased!

Craven Cottage - You Want the Capacity Increased!

In our latest poll, one of our newest members Boca03 tossed an old chestnut into the ring, that of expanding Craven Cottage!

It's a subject that we all have our own opinions on. Many would like to see a massive overhaul of the ground with an increase in capacity whilst those of a more traditional disposition would be strictly against doing something so drastic.

I guess we could argue the toss for ages on this subject and it would be interesting to view your comments in the place provided below.

Returning to the vote though, Boca03 provided us with three options with regards to Craven Cottage and increasing the capacity.

They were - that it definitely needed increasing, no way - leave it as it is and lastly, only increase it if we're sure we can fill it, presumably to prevent the team playing in front of acres and acres of empty seats.

The results were as follows,

Definitely - 72%

No Way - 9%

Only if we can fill it - 19%

Over to you Mr Al Fayed!

any ideas as to where we could relocate though seeing as our current facility isn't conducive to expansion? Or is that subject taboo?

its taboo in my book! We should stay at our traditional home, especially after the long fight to return there when we camped at Loftus Road!

Our attendances were doing so well last season even when we wer edoing so badly. Bigger capacity, more money more ability to compete. Talking of MrBlueSky and his comments. What's happened to Merlin?? I miss his banter!

i think 30,00 is the right size stadium for the size of Fulham. It aint happening this season though, they are only adding around 1,000 seats
