Though it wasn't remotely funny , the fact you couldn't work out that was an attempt as sarcasm is worrying ! 

That's me. Innocent, naive and honest. Take things to be as said/written.

This thread has become way too abstract for me, the line between who's whooshing who has become a little blurred ;D ....great OP though.

So where would fans prefer a revamp to start , North , South , West stands , Kop or total revamp. Bearing in mind last estimates for World Cup upgrade was around £20M mark.

The shop! West, North concourse, Kop facilities are punt the back and bugger the prawn sandwich brigade in the South. lol

Just be happy you see the irony, unlike some.

I hate to be the one to point this out but it was sarcasm, not irony. Irony would have been saying that the only people who didn't get wet were the ones complaining.

The irony of you being the only one calling it irony when it isn't ironic, is almost enough to send me spiralling into a vortex of sad space and darkness at this time of day.

A bit like Alanis Morissette's song 'ironic', where the only ironic thing is that she's written a song called irony and doesn't know what it means.. unfortunate would have been a better song title.

Anyway, viva la revolucion! UTO.

Judging by the stuff I've seen on social media, our roof leaking has been the highlight of the Pigs season up to now.

 

Haven't seen them that excited in a long time.

The North stand is ok for capacity and lack of posts, but it seems unstable when everyone bounces and the facilities are average at best. 

 

I get get that it is historic - maybe the aesthetics could be absorbed in a new stand design. 

 

We we get a bit attached to stands in my opinion. If we can replace with something better why wouldnt we do it? 

 

The only thing that should be consistent is the location.

If you all want to be grammatically correct, from the pictures I saw, the roof was not leaking, Quite the opposite. There was so much water at one time that the roof, which directs the water away into the gutters, was stopping so much water going through, that the said gutters were of insufficient size and were unable to cope. It was the fact that the downpipe from the gutters was of insufficient size. The answer is easy. Install a downpipe of sufficient size, say something like two feet diameter, from the corner of the roof to the floor, and into a surface ditch, some three feet wide, in a direct line to the river. The fact that this will a) obstruct the view of the playing field for many people who use the the stand, and b) give a rather uneven surface to the pitch across the full face of the goal, is immaterial., as is the fact that this said ditch will be unused for another 25 years or so.

Problem solved.

We should roof all the stands together and design it to funnel rain onto the away fans.

The north stands iconic design is one of the best in the country granted when it pours it leaks but it wasn't just a splendid shower now was it! An we as a club dealt with it sharpish and the game went on congratulations to all concerned!

Rumour today is that we are demolishing Hillsborough and playing all our capital One cup games at Wembley.

Are you sure it wasn't an ironic design.

 

'a state of affairs or an event that seems deliberately contrary to what one expects and is often wryly amusing as a result.

 

It was a state of affairs or an event,  was it a deliberate design fault, it was amusing.
