Look again, it's definitely got more terracing on the upper level that there is now. I'd say its approx. 6 more steps. Also it looks like they are going to level the lower north/west corner to match the rest, which makes sense.

That image is clearer than I remember, must have been the beer.


Also looks like they’re intending to bring the turnstiles behind the North Stand into use as there’s a flight of steps heading down toward them.
If Matt Ellis accomplishes these changes and gets us comfortably back into Superleague he’s done more than any Chairman/Owner since Stuart Hadfield.

What a fantastic turn of events for us long suffering supporters

Wonder if there’s a plan to utilise the space at the rear as some sort of concourse with food/beer stand and toilets. Could be interesting indeed.

Really looking forward to seeing what Ellis has got in store.

Matt Ellis seems very commercially savvy from what he’s done so far, if he wants to maximise match day revenue then a concourse with outlets catering for everyone is a must. Bars, food & merchandise outlets with clean toilets, TVs set in an attractive well managed concourse could hugely increase the revenues and create a superb atmosphere which would encourage people to return.

That’s not true though I get your gist. Ellis had nothing to do with the East Stand, which is without doubt the biggest development at the club in the last hundred years. Difference is that the east stand was a collaborative effort, dozens played a part.

I’m not just talking about the East stand though am I
As I said if they fix the East Stand issues and refit it to the standards expected, do the North Stand as proposed, Build a new West stand as proposed and rebuild the club from the bottom up in terms of staff in all departments while overseeing our re entry into SL then that’s more than any other Chairman has achieved in 60+ years

I kinda agree with Vasty.
You are right about what he is doing but he's got a long way to go yet.

Some great ideas for West but I'll believe a rooftop bar when I see it.

And it's not a competition. He's building on the back of the other guys.
They clearly couldn't do what he is doing as they didn't have the money but equally no one else got us from admin to profit making business or built a new stand.....and a lot had a go.

I couldnt agree more.

He must have been pretty peeved off with such as the turn of events from such as the floodlights and water, but has just got on and seen about putting things right, without publicly lashing out, which some folk may have done.

Very excited about the plans he has for our club, both on and off the pitch.

So glad and happy that hes our owner, and despite the relegation, have never felt as upbeat as a Wakefield supporter.

I love the way you think you know what happened when you don’t. As far as I recall you were kicked out of the club when JK got fed up with you causing bother and spreading malicious gossip and you’ve not been invited back since. Cancelled for 15 years, way to go.
