Underground car park under the new stand.


As well as the away team coach going underground and then either use a lift or stairs up to the ground floor.

It’s a hotel - not the secret hideout of a James Bond Villian. Hang on that’s a good idea as we could have Odd Job at Centre half, Scaramanga and Jaws upfront to give us some bite.

It will be interesting to see what the Quarry Lane end would look like from inside the ground.
It looks like they might completely replace the existing stand, rather than add on to it?
I am unable to attend on Tuesday, but if anyone manages to get any pics - it would be great to see them.

OMG, no floodlights, does that mean games will kick off at 1pm in midweek, like they did in the 60s?

JR has bought some under-floor lighting (80’s disco style) from a bloke in the pub.

I've got some of those 80's style disco balls in the attic.

A row of those along the roof line that burst into life when we score and the PA system blasting out "Heaven must be missing an Angol" does it for me :drummer: :guitar: :guitar: :guitar:
