The Strawberry has no protection whatsoever and could be knocked down tomorrow if the owners wanted to. It's also not residential. 

 

Leazes Terrace is Grade I listed and is resi. 

 

 

 

 

Knock the cunt down after their HBA/Pardew crack.

Strawberry isnt listed tho but

Fair enough. Should be though. Probably been around just as long and has just as much cultural significance to the city.

Not sure you can quite compare the pub with some of the finest classical architecture in the country but I do agree that on a cultural level it's a bit crazy that there's nothing stopping the Strawberry being flattened. Don't even think it is locally listed.

Honestly fuck it. Bar Loco is the real fans pub near SJP.

 

They stood when others refused

But the people who run The Strawberry aren't even the owners of the site itself - they're just tenants. There's been a pub on that site since middle of 19c.

Wonder how long the Sports Direct shite will still be plastered all over the stadium, wasn’t there some talk last year that as part of the deal the signage would remain?

 

Even if they could just get it down off the East Stand for now, hate how it ruins the Newcastle United lettering. Probably be there rest of this season I guess

Isn’t there talk of east stand becoming the sir Bobby Robson stand, could get the classic font back with his name on the stand. 

 

Hope not. Much though Bobby was an extraordinarily decent man and an excellent manager, Joe Harvey's name should come first if we're talking about renaming stands.

It would be incredible if it’s gone for Spurs and nobody expects it :smitten:

Who owns Leazes Park? Is it a public space so the city owns it? Could we not do one of those things where you build like 3/4ths of a stadium almost around the Leazes End and then when that's ready to roll, knock the old SJP down and finish the stadium. That would be the best possible scenario when it came to having to play somewhere else because we'd spend the least amount of time away from St James' Park.

 

The one real big positive here is that we have some of the most inventive and creative people available working on this solution. Our stadium could quite possibly be the best stadium on the planet when it's done, and that'll be fucking awesome. And all the noises coming from the new owners already talk a lot about how important the stadium location is so I don't think they'll even entertain moving elsewhere.
