I still find myself staring at the stand on match day - it truly is a wonderful sight, particularly when full. It will look great tomorrow.

 

If we do end up moving grounds, I hope we take the cant and re-build it as the centerpiece like we did with the old Olive Grove stand in 1899.

 

Not a chance.  Moving old buildings costs a fortune.  If we were to move grounds we'd build from scratch from 21st century designs.  Our new ground would look absolutely nothing like Hillsborough.  You only have to look at every ground built since 2000 to see that.

S36....you must have access to a great source of memorabillia. Are they yours or archive  . Really good to see views of the past. 

Thanks for the memories ..as the song goes.

Bob Hope sang the song if anybody is old enough to remember him.

A new ground at sometime is almost a certainty while Chansiri is in charge  . Isnt engineering where he has made his fortune.

No I understand that - it's just the concept really.

 

I think it's interesting how people are wanting more different and unique areas; standing; historical 'ends' and maybe integral to this is architects having to design some variation into the bland bowls of the recent past. I see Tottenham have created a large banked 'kop' end into the new White hart Lane, and the inside each quarter of the stands look different, but enclosed by a single roof structure, which doesn't dominate.

That 3rd photo is epic!

 

Love the lone workman chilling out on his own near the bottom of this pic.

 

He's probably day dreaming of knocking in a 25 yard screamer at the Kop end.

I think the difficulty is that when building a stadium you want the most seats per area of space in the ground.  invariably that leads to a bowl shape.  Sadly it doesn't lead to the best atmosphere.
