External Ground Improvements at Hillsborough

Recommended Posts

How good does the Kop look in that rich royal blue on that Photoshop picture?

 

Would indeed look great with a video wall on it or failing that, an even bigger version than before of the iconic and unique 70's minimalist owl that every other bugger in the country associates with us.

Have a look at these photos of Sheffield Wednesday's Hillsborough Stadium from over the years..
 

Photo's showing before and after of ground improvements made in recent years to the external side of our football ground.

Starting above with the West Stand, and the improvements Chansiri has made since becoming our Chairman.

 


That new cladding on the West Stand is beyond embarrassing. Designed by Chansiri’s son no doubt, probably not long after he had given his dad the green light to appoint Carlos.

Yeah but this isn't about football this thread. It's about the upkeep of the outside of the ground!

Fortunately that's not cladding. It appears to be canvas or some other material simply covering the previous exterior. You can see what appear to be seams, and the dead giveaway is that the original cladding can be seen on the edges.

 

This is a smart way to give the exterior a face lift (and the appearance of new cladding with a custom paint job) at a lower cost, just a shame about the graphics... Not sure if you've heard, but there's a great debate over whether that's an owl's buxom cleavage or an owl giving someone a rim job. If the club had an decency they would put the matter to rest by releasing an official statement. Personally I think it's a rim job.

what a flipping idiotic statement. Whoever told Chansiri to appoint Carlos was a genius. Gave us two of the best seasons for 20 years

The problem with this is the proportions are all wrong. whoever designed these should be shot into space

Inherited the good basis for a side and had more dosh to spend than any Wednesday manager for donkeys years.

Wasted an opportunity for us to get promoted and produced some of the most dire and depressing negative football I have seen for years in his last couple of seasons even with a great surface to play on and an expensive squad.

His treatment of players coming back from injury was a disgrace.  

"but we were 90 mins from the Premier League" they say.......if we were still playing in that match we probably wouldn't have scored yet.

Before and after of the turnstile doors on Penistone Road

 

For some reason these doors tend to fade faster than any other paintwork on the ground over a year or two so always need redoing every year or so to stay that lovely dark blue colour


some scumbags nicked all the y’s from the turnstiles.

100% true.

Carlos was,and is, a one season wonder.

I miss the non-tarped west stand.  The name lit up at night was stunning.
