walked passed yesterday, the ground looks like it could do with a fettling, the supports at the cantilever are rusted like nobodies business, would not surprise me if sumat is condemned before the fans return

Ironwork and the actual concrete need painting.... 

 

Similar to the paint job they did at Meadowhall on concrete roof of the covered lower parking areas.. Complete with colour coding. 

 

Get the same company to do it...

It’s only when you’re inside and its empty that you realise how dated the old lass is. Needs a major revamp.

As long as the chairman’s name stands out everywhere that’s ok though, eh?

Millions and millions spent on ageing players past they sell by date and agents during last 6 years.

But cant afford a few thousands on a bit of paint and a new boiler for undersoil heating.

She does need some work doing. As stated above a lick of paint wouldnt go a miss but still think we need to knock the west stand down (and cheese corner) and rebuild it. Not only would it update it to something more usable it would remove the stigma of the disaster.

Few million quid there, for a like for like replacement.

Hard to justify from a business perspective

It seems to me that DC is more interested in having his name plastered on the stadium ie North Stand than spending a few thousand ponds on giving the old lady a decent facelift.

First off it needs to go from light blue to the actual proper shade of blue for the club 

 

Always does my head walking down to the ground and staring at a bright blue kop

This is how it should be mate,took this photo of the North Stand when we was there for my  daughter's wedding reception. Ran down that tunnel and forgot all about the wedding.

Was it originally our blue?

Presumably the Presto Stand logo is still visible. 

 

Sure the excuse for not sorting it out before was because they needed a period of time with no fans using the stand. Well it's been 13 months now...

It just looks terrible and neglected 

 

It typifies the club in general. The stench of decline

 

I have to turn my head driving past Leppings Lane so I don’t catch sight of that truly awful stand.

 

We shouldn’t underestimate the psychological impact of it all. 
Like when you gut a room in the house and decorate to a high standard. It lifts your well being no end Collectively that’s what should be done at Hillsborough . Like I say psychologically your environment needs to lift you. Ours depresses us despite the potential we all see

 

Thing is... in the 70’s we were dreadful but we had a stadium to be proud of, Indeed one of the best around. Now we can’t even lay claim to that

Should have been done years ago.

Especially considering the amount of money we have wasted on poor players. 

New stand or Gilles de Bilde what would have been better business.

Disagree on that 

Only way to remove the stigma would be to leave the ground 

 

Just type in Hillsborough on Google and the first thing that comes up is the disaster

Think you need to contact the club directly and make a quote!
