I can't copy the text from the site unfortunatley but cutting a long story short it's going to be a big complex with hotels etc etc.

It will be 22,000 capacity (bit big for us I think but better than it being to small I guess. It will be made (hopefully) by HOK the same company that made Arsenal's Emirates stadium.

Nah if you look closely the grey part isn't the roof, there is a clear glass part as the roof IMO?

Yeah I must admit I was slightly worried it would look like Reading / Southampton but we have managed to get the stadium similiar but still with a unique style and keeping it different to most others.

Our key was to get it very similiar to Swansea's as the atmosphere there is awesome, I think we have copied parts of that, Arsenal and Chelsea.

you mentioned awesome atmosphere and Chelsea in the same sentence?!

Stadium looks great, and the retail/leisure/hotel parts should keep the costs right down too.

If it looks anything like that, doubtful as artist impressions rarely do, then it'll look ace! Definately different from the normal boring bowls. But 22,000? Too big IMO. If we ever get a new stadium i'd rather have it about 18-20k, with room for easy expansion. Nothing worse than empty seats, sure its nice to have empty seats as its cash waiting, but it doesnt help atmosphere, or look good.

Suppose they could set up on the old pitch?

Nath, couldn't agree more it was changed last min from 15,000 to 22,000.

I know totally what you mean BUT all you have to do is get a big team in a cup, get promoted or a local derby and they seats will be filled.

IMO id rather us go for the 22 than the 15 "just incase"

Yep and not only that if you decide you need more later on then you could have the potential of loosing alot more whilst it's being built and upsetting season ticket holders etc
