The only cool thing about Pride park is the fact that before demolishment, the chisled out the Steve Bloomer torso from the wall of the Baseball Ground and had it placed near the player's race, hence why the club song is now known as Steve Bloomer's watching, which has the same tune as Up there Cazaly ;)

Amazing.

Something like this is attainable in my opinion and would be amazing to have a place like that to call our own. 16,000 seat stadium, with the ability to host other events.

I am in love with this stadium. The indoor/outdoor feature is great also. Win.

1958 upgrade plans for Wolverhampton Wanderers' Molineux stadium, which were sadly never used

molineux-plans-1958-larger.jpg

Is it just me or do those proposed stadium upgrade plans seem really advanced for their time as they are from the late 50's..If this stadium was eventually was built - it'd still look modern today. Awesome layout.

I am sure Ando could tell you a lot more about architecture than I could, but there was some very crazy architecture happening around the 50s and 60s. Problem is that a lot of it costed a shit load to build so many clubs chose to turn down stadiums like that and go for the more affordable options. Which is a shame, although its easy for me to say because I am not the one paying for it.

This is what the completed 156,000 seated completed Waverly Park (VFL Park then) was meant to end up looking like: And yes they were dead serious that this was going to be happening for years.

A close relative of mine even wrote an article in the early 1970’s about it being maybe one day being the greatest Stadium in the world.

A bloke that used to work with my old man was out there the day they turned the first sod.

Apparently Sir Kenneth Luke was chased by a goat. Doomed for failure on day 1.
