Increase ground capacity or move?

We need a stadium that can hold 30,000 if we stay in the top division. This will enable us to increase the number of seats we can allocate for away supporters and these would definitely be taken up by about one third of our opponents (Man U, Man City ,Liverpool and the London premiership clubs) . The remainder of the additional seats would be taken up by those on the season ticket waiting list and sales promos aimed at supporters who attend now and again.
I think the club and the council need to look at how supporters can get to the ground , the available parking and road access needs to be improved and the train link previously planned needs to be reconsidered. I honestly believe that if access cannot be improved we should move.

I agree if we keep staying up the demand will increase but what if we go down - soon the extra 2/3k we get now might disappear.

Guess that is the risk you take for being ambitious.

Maybe for now we just ought to think about buying a new defence!

Extra 2 to 3k!! We struggled to get 14k as a mid table championship side. I wouldn't even consider moving, or adding another tier until at least 2020 if I was holding the purse strings. Would be financial suicide in my opinion.
