that review is spot on and the observations about the seating categories are exactly why i didn't even bother trying to buy any tickets. Even now people who'e spent 100's of pounds have no idea where they are seated and from what i've seen many of them are going to be disappointed

What is the redux on the stadium. Did it turn out OK?

The modifications required to make it a multipurpose stadium look pretty good too. If it works.
The drawings, published on the club's official site, show how the Stadium will be able to function as both an athletics arena - with seating withdrawn - and a football ground with the four sides of the lower bowl pushed towards the pitch by automated motors.
