The North East corner at Hillsborough, where The North Stand meets The Kop.

Most famous probably as the home of Tango.

But is there actually a name for this section of the ground? What do you call it or know it as?

It looked better in the first picture. 
 

The architect who did that and the cheese wedge wants locking up along with the bloke that signed off the plans

One of two areas of the ground I've never been in as well as north west corner. I presume it's still classed as the kop rather than a separate stand.

I call it the triangle on the kop. Got p!$$ wet through on there a few times.

Big George there next to Tango, used to be on half the doors in Hillsborough.

Tango’s corner. At least for the last decade or so. Don’t remember it having any particular name before that but I’m sure Owlstalkers will enlighten me.

For anyone who had played the classic fifa games back in the 90s.

The Triangle and The Crows Nest - both of those nicknames have been given to both corners (the North/Kop, and the North/West) in my time

 

lol

 

It's very confusing as they both seem to be called the same things! ha ha

This is how I remember the kop looking from mid/late 70's until they put the roof on. There's not really a defined area, just an extension of the kop - with a big drop from the top half (possibly explaining 'crows nest').

 

However, the North/West Corner is pretty much the same shape as it was back then. We called it the triangle...and I still do. Some people call it the cheese wedge, meh. How those names ever got to be used at the North/East corner is beyond me.

Known in my family as where we stood to watch the Boxing Day Massacre. Not very catchy but what a day.
