FFS Fulham. Just accept that you're never gonna be big and leave your lovely ground alone.
In fairness, it is a terrific looking stand, and enhances the view from the river.

But I will still be upset if they don't reinstate the Neutral end.

If they needed a neutral section in the old ground, they'll certainly need one in the souped up version!

If you get a rare clear day, the view from the top tier at Hampden is unsurpassed. And of course, you wouldn't want to look at the pitch.

They've been building it for years. In January 2020 they'd made very little progress and they'd been working on it since they were promoted the season before I think.

I think they started demolition of old stand in Summer 2019, and serious construction of new stand in Summer 2020, and its nearing completion now. Not rapid, buts its a big job, and its not as if they've needed the capacity for the last year.

If you look really closely you can see Mac by the church, Dave chatting to John Devey and Brian Green on the terraces. John Russell is the guy with the pen and paper in the Trinity.

Would suggest this one is slightly earlier. From 1904. Can't even remember where I got the black and white original, but I colourised it.

That's not me on the Holte End it's my brother.  At that time I was otherwise engaged sticking it to the Boers at Rourke's Drift.

If you were fighting the Boers at Rourkes Drift then you were on your own Brian. Everyone else there was fighting the Zulus (the real ones).

Good to see they installed a guillotine to encourage the slackers in training.

But it would go some way to explain why the year we went down the players ran around like headless chickens.

I wonder if we'll go similar to the new Anfield Road? They're not replacing the lower tier but refurbing it, which is different from us, but its final look might be indicative.

Retains four distinct stands and fills in the corners to maximise space. I had a look on their website and they're creating 1800 seats that give access to premium bars. I noticed on the survey we got sent the other day that some of the questions related to things like this.
