Ah there we go, memory playing tricks. I only remember Spurs because of how dirty Jurgen was that night. To attack a peace loving Buddhist that way. Shameful.

A quick Google and the Palace game 27th Aug had some in the Lower Holte even though the Lower wasn't finished.

I've started using it recently too. Pretty nice inside, had a recent lick of paint outside too. Quite a bit of seating, but the bar does get busy.

Haven't used the Holte Pub for a couple of seasons , main reason being it was always packed and difficult to get served or gets seats . Never had enough bar staff on

The Pavilion

I never knew that. Anyway, any excuse to post a pic. Circa 1969.

Looked nice and lively in there when I walked past after the Fulham game.

EDIT: the Holte Pub, not the Trinity Road stand.

We didn't play Spurs until Jan '95. Lower tier was mainly open for Inter which was late '94. We'd played 3 home league games before then, Saints, Palace and Ipswich. All were under 25k. Newcastle a couple of days after Inter was 30k.

Thinking about it, we played Wigan in the LC a week before Inter, 12k. I was Lower Holte that night.

Ah yes, I was in the lower Trinity for that Season.

Does anybody know how many hospitality places there are currently in the North Stand and what the plans are to relocate these.

No idea, but the plans will involve significantly increased hospitality in the Trinity and plenty in the new North.

How will it increase in Trinity? Would hope there is bucketloads in North to pay for the darn thing.

There is an extension to the existing two hospitality floors overlooking the park - it's in the plans. Plus all the space that currently houses the dressing rooms is being repurposed as they are building new dressing rooms in the corner of the two stands.

Hope they retain the current size and look of the tunnel with the trophies to left. Always looks good when it's shown on TV.

There's what London Villa mentioned internally.  But I also reckon those middle-tier seats will be at risk.  The 1874 padded seats will only be the start of it would be my guess.

And the dugout seats… they’ll need their own supadupa bar…
