The strange thing about the new Trinity Road Stand is that, 6 years earlier, we did such a fine job on the new Holte's exterior.

Does anyone know what's going on at the side of the expressway where the burger vans park? It looks for all the world like they're building an access ramp. Would be great if it was. Wishful thinking though I guess.

Does the page that documented the demolition and rebuild of the Trinity still exist?
I was addicted to that when I lived abroad.

I was really impressed with the Trinity hospitality. The range of booze  champagne, gin lists, good beer (not like what you don't get served in time on the concourse..) on offer was cracking and the food, which I was expecting to be bog standard British industrial pub fare (no disrespect to my kind host) was really good (I'm talking French people not getting sniffy about it good). And you get to rub shoulders with Sir Brian, Orange Boy, etc  and see Tyrone stride past you after the game.

I hate them, but this is how you modernise a piece of architectural genius




I agree totally. Not a huge fan of the team that plays there, but Ibrox is a stunning stadium from the outside.

Ibrox main stand is close to the look of the outside of the stands at Villa Park that I think we should have. I don't really have any problem with the inside of the new stand but the outside could be anywhere.

Like Villa Park, Ibrox was designed by architect Archibald Leitch.

You probably all knew that, but it is a beautiful stadium.

Shame about Rangers being horrible.

The one stand is incredibly beautiful.  The rest look more like a cross between a 70's office building and a multi storey car park.

All looks very impressive. Not sure if been mentioned but I was surprised to see that on 1 labelled pictorial image, there was a site noted as future training ground !
Surely having ploughed all the cash into BMH, that’s not a consideration in the next 10 years or so ?

When I was staying in Glasgow this summer I went to look at Ibrox. It's striking how similar it is to Villa Park in style and also how their rampant lion emblem and motto (Ready) are similar to Villa's.

Villa's rampant lion and "Prepared" motto came a good fifty/ sixty years before Rangers came up with their facsimile - something I love to point out to their deluded supporters, along with the fact their future monarchs are Villans.

Some of Picard's frozen desserts are worth a nibble.
