|Does exactly what it says on the tin - the forum for football-related discussion.
Mywhufc's photos are great but to be honest we had lost half of this stuff before the move, I don't recall crowdsurfing over a roofless north bank without a steward or Lord Taylor in sight to tell me it's against H&S. It is however some achievement that the OS is so incredibly **** that even after losing half of it long before moving, we've still lost most of the rest of it.
The real atmosphere at the BG wa lost when all seater stadium came in.
we are where we are. Time to move on. the LS is poor at present and needs the fans closer the pitch. I still canot see why this is not possibe and hopefully being looked at. Even if we need to cover up a few rows of the front upper tier to deal with poor sight lines the fans nearer the pitch must be better. Hopefully not needed but sight lines for upper tier have been mentioned.
One day we will buy the bowl and get our soul back fully. In the meantime we must fully support the team and make it as successful and desirable for a buy out as possible.
Blimey, I thought I was repetitive...
You're absolutely deluding yourself in thinking we will ever be closer to the pitch...
This is an illustration from a book my friend is producing which charts the history of every Premier League clubs crest. Thought it was really nicely done. Book looks brilliant too.

hammerman11, I have explained in quite some detail why moving the lower tier closer to the pitch is impossible.
next time you are at the stadium, walk up the steps for the upper tier and then the lower tier, the rakes are entirely different with the lower tier being much much shallower then the upper, you cannot stretch the lower tier any more, and even if you did you would obstruct the views in the upper tier, it would be a lot more rows then a few that would need to be covered up, and frankly would look sillier then it already looks, besides these seats are where club 1966 sits, they aint gonna do away with them..
There is one simple fact that cannot be changed, this stadium was built as an athletics stadium and NOT a football stadium, this cannot be changed without knocking the fuckin thing down..
mushy I like the last idea ! However how about taking the top tier seats out and reconfiguring them with an overlay of newly angled seats ?
Then move the lower tier seats closer. would do the tbl and bml first as impacts less. west stand can stay east stand depends on how the first two works out.
Nothing is impossible. The task would be easier if we could put permanent in of course but guess we will have to await that brave new day !
Affordable housing eh? Half a million in Green St?

It is affordable, just not to 90% of people, which is why the term "affordable housing" means **** all.
Thats an awful picture.
I dreamt last night we were playing Spurs back at the old place.
I cannot ever imagine having a dream about the bowl and I honestly never knew I would miss the old place so much.
