'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Notts County's 60,000 Seater Ground Share Plans?

Whilst neighbours Notts County are busy proving to the Football League that their owners are Fit and Proper Persons, it's also come to light that they are planning to develop a new stadium.

Vital Forest have been told about the Meadow Lane clubs' ambitious plans, that include ground sharing a 60,000 seater stadium with the Reds'.

Alledgedly, Notts County want to buy the land surrounding Meadow Lane and turn it into a stadium, that would be utilised by both Forest and Notts.

Forest Chairman Nigel Doughty though, is said to have dismissed the plans out of hand and considers the idea as an attempt to derail the 2018 World Cup bid, that NFFC and the City Council have in place. He's also unconvinced that a 60,000 seater ground could ever be filled. That's a view that would be shared by most Forest fans, who have doubts that we'd fill a ground with a capacity of 45,000.

It should be stated that this is just a rumour at the moment, but the source of the information has been proved right on many things that Vital have gone with this summer.
