My uncle was at the site moving some cables in the street, he was there at 2am on a Saturday/Sunday and he reckoned it was as busy as most sites in the daytime, he was very impressed by the whole set up and he has been in the industry for over 40 years

hopefully the South stand will still have a great atmosphere and when it comes to goading away fans it will mean they will have to sing/shout even louder. another bonus means with the away being in the north stand it might wake a few Spurs fans up at that end.

when I had a season ticket 2001-2003 I was sat in the lower east, them days the Paxton used to have a good atmosphere, and we had 3 sides buzzing on a good day:) so hopefully we can get them back to being alive when we start at the NWHL(y)

There was a video on Facebook yesterday about the roof. Its amazing the engineering behind getting such a massive structure up there. Definitely worth a watch if you haven't seen it.

am I right in thinking our stadium is taller than the libraryates? it just looks so big. I go past the slum every day and it doesn't look as tall as this?

Raker going in on the east tree today.
Will then have a second 1 put in to match the other side and then be connected like those 2 were.
I assume those will then be connected together.

Roof support structure lifting is incredible. It does look a daunting task to get it right , on time & safely. IMO, this looks to be the most difficult job of all till now

Islington imposed height restrictions on their saucer meaning a flatter design, which in turn results in a shallower stadium with the top seats being substantially further away.

I think ours looks bigger as well because of the enclosed nature. Must be only modern stadium in Europe built in such an Urban surround. But it’s defo one of the tallest out there. And will look even taller with roof as it sort of goes up and out. From the outside I believe it’s taller than bernabeu.
