Lurker (again) - would guess that the seats would be rebanked within the shell of the ground, making it steeper but extending the capacity in the process

Could be totally wrong though
Lurker - I believe so.

Shame we're not going to be playing Bournemouth any time soon, because that's an excellent example of how a small, basic stadium can be good to watch a game from. And as for their car park...
Apologies if this is obvious somewhere but I’ve never seen it. How is the capability to add 11000 more seats achieved. Will the stands be changed or are there blank spaces or something else?

If I understand correctly the away fans will have an end, so they won’t be on the sides?

JP - don't think NPL will be big enough to be soul-less. Functional and basic, maybe, but that won't matter with a crowd in

And IIRC the design is deliberately supposed to be as near to the field as possible
What we need NPL to be is a nice cosy intimate version of KM but without the obvious drawbacks. The closeness to the pitch would be good but I suspect there is some stupid FA law that says you have to be so far away from the players. What we do not want is a soulless place. Best (limited) example I can think of is perhaps Burton's ground?

Trigger probably SwinDon and Red Kite yep and that is 3 seasons ago. We really struggle to think of occasions we’ve had a home advantage in decisions. I can think of away ones that went in our favour, Walsall for example and I can think of home ones that went against us, several hand balls already this season. KM doesn’t bring us any extra points or intimidate anyone bar the lino in front of the away fans.

Not too long ago we got given a really dodgy penalty in front of the Chemflow end (can't remember who against but it was never a pen) but then I think Taylor had it saved so justice was ultimately done. In fact I think that if Taylor had hit it any more weakly he could have claimed it was a sporting gesture.

Lurker, the obvious one was Accrington at home in our promotion season

Cost Stanley an automatic promotion place and they ended up getting beaten in the semi finals of the playoffs by somebody
Kentish has taken his custom to Crawley so he can watch Francomb (e)

That or the players being gutted you're not there watching them, Kentish.

Of course, Kyle. I just think our new Alhambra won't be quite the land of figs and labnah as some hope.

Ouch! That's scathing!! It is not rather irrational to blame the stadium for our under-performance at home?

When was the last time anyone can recall a big decision that is contentious going our way at home?

Kentish assuming you are right , which obviously you aren’t , and the extraterrestrial atmosphere of KM won’t be replicated at NPL , does the fact it’s in Wimbledon not count for anything ?

Kentish - if your postings were a brand of football, you would be Ardleyball
I smell another REPD myth.

Kentish - there's definitely a bit of an element to that

The term "Theme Park KM" isn't a new one
Are you blaming KM for us being shit at home, Paul?

Morning all. Think the whole KM experience gets even worse when we go to other grounds in this division and they're just so much better than our current one. Even somewhere like Scunthorpe...

Who was it on here whose missus said that NPL will make us look like a "proper" club? They weren't wrong
KM is shit. Won't miss it at all. ……Agree totally, I travel in from Portugal for games, and tend to pick away games as Kingsmeadow is truly awful to view games with terrible amenities . Few pubs around the ground within walking distance, Kingsmeadow is not an enjoyable day out. Add to that teams come to Wimbledon expecting 3 points and often get them. Certainly the least most intimidating ground in the FL.
