Ambitions to be one of the top 100 teams in Europe. :ohmy:

Would struggle to compete with Hull who are currently 88th and Swansea who are 89th.:happy:

In what way shape or form  would it put them on a par with Barca ?

In no way. No way whatsoever.

On a par with Barcelona in the top 100 clubs in Europe :confused:

So Barca in top 3 and the sheep at 99.

Definitely on a par.

Why do they want a new stadium? Can't even fill the one atm that alone should be enough to reject it

But more shite comes from the supporters than the seagulls.

They would have to play us every other week to fill it

I could be wrong here, but is their new stadium not meant to be smaller than pittordrie...?

Aberdeen wouldn't quite be on par with Barcelona, but almost.  They both have an A, a B, an E, an R and an N in their name.  So fairly close.

but they never had C L, even when duff ronnie was at their only real opposition

Even if it does get the go ahead just like the Aberdeen bypass residents will go to court and it could take years to sort it out.

I live in westhill where they want to  build the stadium and have objected. If the application is judged objectively it will be refused outright. The club know that so there’s a campaign to try and pressurise the counsellors - local businesses in Aberdeen are being asked to promote it (put bunting outside, take out adverts,  encourage staff to wear red etc.). I think it will probably get approved (likely in the face of a recommendation from the planners that it by refused) then it’s off to court (plenty of well heeled OAPs in westhill).  The tantrums if it gets refused will be a joy to behold.

I know nothing about it mate but why has it taking this long to get to this stage?

It was meant to be decided in a full council meeting last October. A couple of days before the hearing AFC asked for the vote to be postponed, following a meeting with the council. The story is that they had been told at the meeting that the council we’re going to recommend refusal.

They’ve spent the last few months trying to address some of the problems with the application.

The big problem they have is that the land is zoned as green belt in the local development plan and there are two other sites shown on the plan for a new stadium - one at the beach behind the existing midden and the other over near Cove where they got permission a couple of years ago. They’ve been trying to justify why neither of those sites are suitable - basically, they want to conjoin the stadium and training facilities and are refusing to split them, so they argue they need a 50 hectare site (Ibrox is about 8 hectares) and there’s nothing that size closer to the city centre.

They’ve also produced an economic impact report (which is utter fucking shite) to show how great it will be for the area and to justify a development on the green belt.

The site is right on the boundary with Aberdeenshire. Aberdeenshire Council are against it. It’s 8 miles from the city centre. There are no trains up here so everyone will have to drive or come by bus. 

Stuart Milne is too used to getting his own way up here.

Sounds like a case of make enough noise and soon enough someone will give you the answer you want. Just so you'll stop:lol:

Still a good chance of it getting refused again aye?

I think there’s a decent chance the planners will recommend refusal - that’s why AFC are trying to whip up the public pressure. Not sure what the counsellors will do.

If they don't get their new stadium they're fucked financially. 

Exactly, and we should be keeping a very close eye on how it will be funded. Any hint of Aberdeen City council tax money going into it in the future to fund building and upkeep - all for sporting integrity as they are so keen to refer to.

They will also try to add on a scheme where part of the complex is open to the public, so they can try and claim council tax funding for the build. Seriously, keep an eye on this as many are smelling a rat with it.
