Which bit of Roots Hall would you take...

..to Fossets Farm, and why?

Inspired by SBH's question in another thread, I would take the North bank for the away fans. This would serve three purposes:

1. The away fans would continue to have cramped accomodation and a crap view, as is only fitting.

2. They could make all the noise they like, and be convinced that they had outsung us, but we would hardly hear them because of the barrel roof

3. It would allow the Nostalgics amongst us to continue the "We Want the North Bank Back" campaign in perpetuity.

Spot on. The Fish House and the Spread will need to be airlifted and dumped right next to the new ground.

Is it possible to take something that doesn't exist? If we can I would take the lack of space in the corners restricting the run ups for corners to about 2 steps, so that we can still all moan when they go wrong.

On the detailed overhead plan, right in the middle of the entrance plaza, is a building designated as a "fast food restaurant".  I know it won't happen, as it'll end up being a plastic burger house, but I can dream of that being a Fish House franchise!  Marvellous.  

I'd even be able to nip out at half time were a Lucky Gherkin to be required.

Good call regarding The Fish House.

And GREAT call for installing it as the "fast food restaurant" by the entrance. Whatever goes there is going to make money for the club so why not restrict the bidding restauranteurs and make it something special!

Go on, you know what to do Ron, Ron...

Sorreee!  

Being dim as I am I didn't realise in March that there would be a Fast Food Restaurant designated in the Entrance Plaza area of the new stadium.  If I'd spotted it at the time in the design I'd have suggested it then!
