Saints to revamp St Mary's?

An artist's impresion of the revamped St Mary's

First published in Southampton

SAINTS have released artist’s impressions that appear to show possible plans for a St Mary’s Stadium expansion.

The drawings were contained on a DVD given to fans who have renewed their season tickets.

They look to show extensions to the Kingsland, Northam and Chapel stands, with a fresh frontage on the stadium.

A new building is also attached to the back of what appears to be the Chapel end in the drawings.

The designs are included on a DVD which features a review of the last three campaigns, as well as a selection of interviews.

Fans shouldn’t get too excited yet, though.

Rumours of a possible St Mary’s expansion have been circulating since Markus Liebherr’s takeover of the club was completed in 2009.

But no plans have been lodged with Southampton City Council, and Saints themselves have not so much as mentioned the artist’s impressions on their website.

The drawings were also featured under the hardly-definitive heading “our future?” in the DVD.

Saints are unlikely to consider putting any expensive plans in motion unless they can safely establish themselves as a high-flying Premier League club.

They would also need to be confident of a season ticket base that is both big enough and loyal enough to warrant the initial costs and sustain the necessary crowds to make an expansion viable.

While attendances last season were impressive, Saints’ average St Mary’s crowd was still nearly 6,000 below the ground’s current capacity.

Major 'Like' for this.

Needs to be done quite frankly, we've got to be ambitious and this is the way to go. Income in the future will need to come from sales and extra seats, even if at reduced ticket prices is the way forward.

COYR build it and we will come

In my opinion the club should get on and put the planning application in for this. Although the thing that puzzles me is the shape of Itchen stand also changes and the Chapel end car park has disappeared. Is this an extension or a new stadium altogether ??? interesting times ahead

This expansion will happen if we can stay in the premier league , sellout st marys every game. End of day it costs to expand the ground so season tickets will ned to be high with a waiting list to be viable and be worth the extension. Mind you if we stayed in premier league then other fans wil turn out and come back.

That's not quite true is it. Prior to Saints going into Administration they never defaulted on any payments to the Mortgage Company which was Norwich Union.
When Markus came in and bought the Stadium, Norwich Union accepted a one off payment proposal that Markus put forward via the Administrator. The agreed amount of money was paid back as full and final settlement. As such Saints did pay for the Stadium, which is now wholely owned by the club.

For the people above saying that it's a great idea, shouldn't we fill the current stadium first?

Spending money in the hope that more space will somehow fill itself would be a very odd decision. I'd rather there was a struggle for tickets every match than overspending.

You only have to look down the M27 to see the end result of overreaching in the pursuit of some future pie-in-the-sky hopes.

Southampton is bang in the middle of the south coast where an awful lot of people a) have money and b) don't prefer rubbish sports like rugby league. As such, if Saints can offer attractive Premiership football then they will easily sell out 45,000 seats every other week.

Have I ever mentioned that I bloody love Nicola Cortese? He's said he can only imagine spending top wages on truly top class international players once we've got a stadium big enough to pay for them. This stadium is a big deal and will take us from mid Premiership to top top six.

It's a good talking point. But just take a moment.

It's a drawing. It has pretty colours, looks super cool and was included to inspire faith in the fans for the future investment in the club.

Remember it was part of a season ticket package freeby. Nothing more was said.

The Echo rightly points out there is nothing lodged with the council. This would be a major development and it would take years to put in place.

In addition we all know NC plays his cards close to his chest and is one crafty dude. I think he will enjoy this speculation as it is stirring up debate and interest which is exactly what he would want. It's all good publicity designed to attract supporters and get the building developers all excited and sharpened up ready with bids for the work.

Shrewd NC..Shrewd

I reckon he does have plans for ground expansion. But we all know we will find out when NC wants us to find out. That's OK with me, better to have a thought out reality than a failed pipe dream.

We are Premier League, the elite, the creme de la creme, the aristocracy of south coast sport. These simple themes bear heavily upon their troubled souls and they know its going to be gruel and stale bread at half time for a long time to come.

It is most unseemly to spoil the sanctity of these threads with references to those whose place is "below stairs". What would Mr Hudson think?

Talk of expansion was around when we first built St Marys.
No harm in getting plans approved for a future time, but I feel consolidation on the pitch is our key focus right now. It will take a few years to establish ourselves as a force again at this level and then expansion may be more viable, Mr Cortese is smart enough to know not to rush these things.

For those saying we should fill ours first, partially agree but then building bigger shows ambition which helps attract and keep talent, and when we were in the Premier League it was difficult to get tickets. A bigger stadium could also allow greater spread of ticket prices thus enabling more to go to games so we'd fill it up. this is how they do in the US as well where you can get very cheap tickets right up to the very expensive.

Never shall his name be uttered didn't build the original SMS big enough for the same reasons as stated about selling enough tickets first then once we were doing well he said it would cost too much to build when adding an extra 10k seats originally would have been much less. Lesson: more ambition in the infrastructure would have made us even stronger.

I like Cortese's ambition and this is where we need to be. We have massive potential. Comparing spending on this to the bunch down the road is also futile as they spent more on players, which if they'd invested in a stadium development and youth policy, they may not be in the situation they are in now. Anyway, this has nothing to do with P*****y at all and everything to do with a team who is going places :)

The doubling of capacity over the Dell by building SMS together with proper corporate facilities easily covered the mortgage repayments and more. The stadium was in effect self funding.

We went into Admin because Crouch and Wild spent 7m we didn't have and then failed to get the investment they promised and we lost in the playoffs. The returning Lowe tried slashing costs to the bone and did reduce borrowings but not by enough to satisfy Barclays who put the club into Admin over a 5m overdraft. SMS had nothing to do with it.

Is he from Portsmuff? If he is there could have been several reasons ranging from being a paedo to seriously overspending his budget or stealing the PTA monies. More than likely a combination of all three. The fact they are going to let him do it all again suggests this to be definitely the case. FACT.

Staying up for the first couple of seasons would be a great achievement, I do hope they do because it's great for the city.

Arthur - that's not what you said in your original post. Originally you said the stadium hadn't paid for, when in fact it was.

However, it was at a level lower than Norwich Union would have got if the loan had gone to term.

They agreed to settle at that figure and therefore the stadium has been paid for.

Trying to preach to us is a little hypocritical, don't you think?

Now go away and find a way to pay those charities whose money disappeared into the abyss, there's a good chap.

Money out of the club you say? But you also said put 30m in - which has been converted to equity so is no longer a debt. Fact. Developing Staplewood at a cost of 15m. Fact.

When Markus came in and bought the Stadium, Norwich Union accepted a one off payment proposal that Markus put forward via the Administrator. The agreed amount of money was paid back as full and final settlement. As such Saints did pay for the Stadium, which is now wholely owned by the club.
Rubbish , prove what you have said!!!!
Why?
Because it,s pure pony that,s why.
Isnt it normally the accuser that has to prove his case?
adminastration is settled at pence in the pound ,the stadium was never payed for in full ,fact.
Arthur - that's not what you said in your original post. Originally you said the stadium hadn't paid for, when in fact it was.

However, it was at a level lower than Norwich Union would have got if the loan had gone to term.

They agreed to settle at that figure and therefore the stadium has been paid for.

Trying to preach to us is a little hypocritical, don't you think?

Now go away and find a way to pay those charities whose money disappeared into the abyss, there's a good chap.

I know because I settled mine...it's not illegal or dodgy. The club is owned outright by the Leihberrs, so they can sell it of course...but they're spending an awful lot of money for people intent on a sale.

Truth hurt? Don't like the fact we didn't rip off charities and local businesses? Or have a succession of criminals for owners? Or have a tiny fan base? Or the fact our stadium isn't falling down? I won't get into developing youth from Portsmouth and selling them on for millions, that would be like rubbing salt in the wounds.

You only have to look down the M27 to see the end result of overreaching in the pursuit of some future pie-in-the-sky hopes.

It doesn't make sense. I hate 'out of town' stadia where everyone has to drive to. Ideally, you want your ground to be at the end of a leisurely five-pub crawl where people don't have to worry about bourgoise concepts like 'parking'.

Staying up for the first couple of seasons would be a great achievement, I do hope they do because it's great for the city. Also too an earlier comment about the club of course Saints are still in dept 99% of football clubs are Mr liebherr didn't just hand over 30 million as a present his family will want that back, plus don't think Cortese is good for the club he is trying to get as much money out of the club as he can before he sells, fact!
Money out of the club you say? But you also said put 30m in - which has been converted to equity so is no longer a debt. Fact. Developing Staplewood at a cost of 15m. Fact.

Which is it to be? Can't be both can it? And that's a fact.
Yeah Cortese is taking money out of the club he hasn't put 1 pound in he isn't Liebherr is he. If you know so much then you must be a friend or Cortese himself! Ask him about his own contract and all the little perks that go with it that he wrote himself. 15m to develop stablewood where have you got that figure from are they building it out of gold! If it has cost that much it will be mortgaged not just paid out of Liebherr families pocket. And like my previous comment Saints are still in dept the same as every other football club they just have secure dept keeping up with payments and they don't owe the tax man. Plus how do you think players are bought cash in a briefcase! they will owe money for Jay Rod over the next few months or years.

That's not quite true is it. Prior to Saints going into Administration they never defaulted on any payments to the Mortgage Company which was Norwich Union. When Markus came in and bought the Stadium, Norwich Union accepted a one off payment proposal that Markus put forward via the Administrator. The agreed amount of money was paid back as full and final settlement. As such Saints did pay for the Stadium, which is now wholely owned by the club.
Rubbish , prove what you have said!!!!
Why?
Because it,s pure pony that,s why.
Rubbish, why should he present the evidence to you. Actually I remember reading in the official papers drawn up by mark fry that the stadium debt was to be cleared by Markus.

Isnt it normally the accuser that has to prove his case?
adminastration is settled at pence in the pound ,the stadium was never payed for in full ,fact.
Arthur - that's not what you said in your original post. Originally you said the stadium hadn't paid for, when in fact it was.

However, it was at a level lower than Norwich Union would have got if the loan had gone to term.

They agreed to settle at that figure and therefore the stadium has been paid for.

Trying to preach to us is a little hypocritical, don't you think?

Now go away and find a way to pay those charities whose money disappeared into the abyss, there's a good chap.
Worzel club ,worzel city ,one trophy in your whole history , certainly not Real Madrid .
Obviously coming from skuntsville ur not the brightest spark but even u should know that 1+1=2 (1 fa cup + 1 football league trophy) try using ur fingers u've got 6 on each hand!!!

Crikey, isn't there some bad feeling on here from our Portsmouth friends?

I've said this before; wouldn't your time be better spent offering your help to try to get your Supporter's Trust bid in? I'm sure they would (genuinely) appreciate any help they can get.

For your info I'm not, I actually want Saints to do well I'm sure they will fill a 40,000 seater stadium if they stay in the premiership for a couple of years, I just can't believe the blinkered view of the fans that they think the club is run perfectly and you will be in Europe soon.

Also too an earlier comment about the club of course Saints are still in dept 99% of football clubs are Mr liebherr didn't just hand over 30 million as a present his family will want that back, plus don't think Cortese is good for the club he is trying to get as much money out of the club as he can before he sells, fact!
Money out of the club you say? But you also said put 30m in - which has been converted to equity so is no longer a debt. Fact. Developing Staplewood at a cost of 15m. Fact.

Which is it to be? Can't be both can it? And that's a fact.
Yeah Cortese is taking money out of the club he hasn't put 1 pound in he isn't Liebherr is he. If you know so much then you must be a friend or Cortese himself! Ask him about his own contract and all the little perks that go with it that he wrote himself. 15m to develop stablewood where have you got that figure from are they building it out of gold! If it has cost that much it will be mortgaged not just paid out of Liebherr families pocket. And like my previous comment Saints are still in dept the same as every other football club they just have secure dept keeping up with payments and they don't owe the tax man. Plus how do you think players are bought cash in a briefcase! they will owe money for Jay Rod over the next few months or years.
Crikey, isn't there some bad feeling on here from our Portsmouth friends?

I've said this before; wouldn't your time be better spent offering your help to try to get your Supporter's Trust bid in? I'm sure they would (genuinely) appreciate any help they can get.

Spending your time on here while your club lurches towards bankruptcy seems an odd way of supporting them, that's all...
Just because I'm not talking up Saints I must be a Pompey fan! For your info I'm not, I actually want Saints to do well I'm sure they will fill a 40,000 seater stadium if they stay in the premiership for a couple of years, I just can't believe the blinkered view of the fans that they think the club is run perfectly and you will be in Europe soon.
It is and we will.

And the two league titles and the 1939 fa cup win happened because most of the clubs young footballers from around the country were doing national service, and were based at Portsmouth because of the build up of the navy,so the majority of the pompey side were playing by default. Pompey won those awards purely by the fact they had some of the best footballing talent based there at the time.
The truth of the matter is,had there not been a 2nd world war,pompey would have won nothing, other than a bought cup a few years ago against the mighty Cardiff.

It seems fairly obvious, but somehow the Skunts don't get it?
It seems there are a few of them ( a few of the few? ) on here, so would they like to explain? Short,simple sentences with small words is OK ( Just in case the thought of having to verbalise clearly made them nervous)

I'm now seeing this story everywhere and it's pretty misleading. Since when were things that by their own admission 'probably aren't going to happen' considered important news? It wasn't that long ago that I think the club officially stated that they had no plans to expand the stadium as it would cost as much as the initial cost to build the whole thing. Nevertheless it would be great if they did, not looking forward to struggling for tickets next season due to all the part timers suddenly taking an interest.

Plans have not yet be submitted, but bear in mind that when they do it will be EASTLEIGH planning office that deal with it, thus it won't show up in a search of the Southampton Council planning website..

This is St.Marys stadium. This pic shows the stadium after it has been expanded. So you think that they will knock down curent ground to build new one.
