    This morning's tempest I have to cross
    I must be guided without a stumble
    Into the arms I love the most

    We cant because of the restriction of light to residential properties surrounding HQ. As the houses back straight on HQ this would never gain planning permission and would immediately gain objections from residents. There wouldn't be enough space to build deeper stands as the gardens are within feet of the back of the stands

    Although there are residential roads on three sides of the ground, the other side is a car park so probably a bit more room there

    We got 13,000 in a west London derby last week 2,500 of those Brentford.

    No new or modified stadium required Im afraid.

    never been to selhurst, heck i've only been to around 10 stadiums give or take so i don't have much to compare our ground too but of all the grounds i've been too LR is defo the most denseley packed together its very compact so i don't think we'd be able to increase the size or space of the ground. my missus summed up LR and the madejski quite funnily "you have a crappy mobile fish and chip shop and they have a farken jazz bar!"

    Never mind their attendance. Their vocal support is possibly the best in the country right now, for home fans.

    Maybe we could lower the pitch too then no? Would not need to build higher.

    I played sunday league football today.

    Clearly I was the best player on the pitch.

    I scored 5 and made 7 last ditch tackles.

    We lost 5-0 but the rest of my team were sh it!

    Fair point but Holloway won't be in charge of fooking up team selections forever.

    Stands already tight to pitch, so no go there!
