    It's the thought that its got another massive block of seating to go behind that already massive stand that really gets me hard.

    The bit that will go further up looks like it’ll be quiet far away from pitch looking at the angle

    The South Stand will be worth at least 0.1 maybe 0.2 PPG a season IMO. Such a great decision to have it there.

    They couldn't really have it at the other end. Cause then it would be the north stand.

    Looking at that South Stand and the way they are adding in the bottom part of the tier, down to the ground, leaves me scratching my head over how they will make part of it open up to 'accommodate' the pitch when it is 'inserted' into its 'underside' area to 'expose' the NFL pitch.

    The top pitch splits into 3 parts.

    It looks like it's down to the ground but it's proud of ground level judging by the base of the crane.

    Due to the podium everything (very roughly) beneath this blue box is below 'ground floor' in the stadium so between that and the actual ground itself will be where the pitch will sit.

    Ha, I just meant as opposed the original design that just had the generic bowl. But touche anyway!

    I know i was just teasing. The original stadium did have a kop (maybe not originally, but definitely at on point).

    I know, I didn't mean that. I meant in regards to the way the stand appears to be being built down to ground level, the front part of the stand is designed to raise up so it can slide under but it's not easy to see how that will work.
    I'll have to look at it more closely, I'm sure it'll be more apparent when more has been completed.
    Again, I know where it will go, and the nature of what will be above it, it's just the route the pitch will take getting there appears to be blocked by the very solid looking parts they've added to the bottom part of the tier, but clearly that's just the perspective of there's more to it than meets the eye.

    Maybe these replies are evidence that I should spend more time being clear and less trying to squeeze innuendo into my posts.

    Think it's probably a perspective problem. We are looking at most of the images side on to the stand.

    There obviously has to be space for the pitch to slide under. It's just difficult to see from that angle.

    There are, or were, blue steelwork temporary supports in place that will come out.

    I was thinking more about the grey steel rakers, which appear to have no joint and reach the floor.

    Someone said on Skyscraper city that they don't actually reach the ground?

    They don't. There's a few pictures where you can clearly see they are suspended.
