Doesn't really give us that much insight except they're looking at three ideas for how to utilize the space. I get the feeling this is going to drag on for sometime.

We must have a 30k stadium so we can have it one third full for nearly every match we play outside the EPL. Which could be an awful lot.

It will be all about the design of the stadium.

Upper and lower tiers would help. Fill the lower tiers, and open the upper tiers if/ when necessary.

Indeed and, of course, it would be a multi-purpose stadium offering facilities for large and small events, 7 days a week.

I totally agree. This will continue to rumble on for years and years. It will happen eventually (like the training ground), but not for a long time yet.

Unless we get back to the Prem, I am happy for it to rumble on for years. Won’t fill LR week in week out in the Championship so let’s stay!

For the gazillionth time... it isn't about filling the stadium for a football match, it is about creating a sustainable and profitable revenue stream most days of the year. I don't get why this is such a difficult concept to grasp.

Believe it or not, some of us are actually attached to LR. Vulcan.

I was attached to White City, but it didn't work out.

Conversely, i think it might be one of the few things to stop me going if I had to watch football in a half empty stadium regularly

If it happens, we will have a blank piece of paper. Hopefully, those designing the new stadium will learn from the mistakes of others and build it to overcome the shortcomings.

As for being attached to LR ... I've been going there for over 50 years, but it's a bit like a house I lived in many years ago in Willesden. It wasn't big enough and had too many disadvantages - we moved, and while I have fond memories of that house, it was time to move, and the new house offered so much more.

I would add, we have had more home grounds than any other club in the football league, so one more should not be a problem.

Exactly this ^^^. Stadium MK is a good design intent for anything we end up; a lower tier of approx 20k with room for expansion to 30k if needed. What is of more concern to me is that QPR own the freehold of the KPFS but will only be tenants in the proposed LCS. Any more there should be ties to a 999 year guaranteed lease.
