For years I have read and listened to absolute drivel about a new stadium in our wee country.
At last, one man, Stuart McKinley, sums up in one paragraph all that needs to be said on this issue, in his match report on the Denmark game in the Belfast Telegraph of November 19: 'How can anyone ever think about playing Northern Ireland games anywhere else when the century old ground produces such special nights?'
Stuart sums the situation up superbly in one sentence.
Yes, the famous old ground needs a major overhaul, funded by the investment it has been denied for years while the Government and football authorities followed a political, rather than a sporting, agenda.
Keep the atmosphere, the success, the feelgood factor, the contract. Keep football at its rightful and traditional home, keep the heritage, keep the proximity to the city night life - rebuild Windsor Park to suit modern football requirements, just as Hampden and Wembley have been rebuilt and now Lansdowne Road.
A rebuilt football stadium will cost a fraction of what it will cost to build a stadium no one wants at the Maze. The money can be saved for schools and hospitals.
A new Railway Stand, a new South Stand and other required works can increase the capacity and make the atmosphere even more electric on match nights.
The draw for the World Cup is approaching. It's time for an end to the waffle on the issue of the stadium. It's time to rebuild a national treasure to secure the future of football in our wee country.
Windsor Forever, Glengormley
