North stand

Drove past the Stoop this afternoon and trees removed behind north stand and an excavator there dig holes.

I know there has been talk of a replacement stand and a fairly major development incorporating a school or college but thought that had died.

Has anyone heard or know what is going on, could it be a new larger temporary stand?

There's nothing official said and Quins have not put in planning permission to the council. Maybe it's getting the stadium ready for John Elton (there's a Rowan Atkinson sketch on that) and Pic N Mix.

Just hope they don't ruin the pitch. Didn't Leicester do that?

The stand is well past its sell by date. But it is probably part of the preparation for the 2 concerts.

Maybe the trees have become unsafe and they are being cut down for safety reasons? How long have they been there?

The trees! for ever as long as I can remember.

Oh you mean the workmen, sorry, saw then yesterday, so probably started on Monday.

10 year temporary stand, wasn't it?

I know there was some fuss when it went up about the supporting posts at the front. Before the beginning of the next season kwin posted some before and after photos of a Will Greenwood try that were quite amusing and even prompted a response on here from Mark Evans, IIRC.

Well I will be sitting or standing on pitch in 3 weeks time so I guess all the flooring will be going in but never thought trees would be sacrificed.

I received a thank you for your support email from David Ellis. It stated we sold out 7 of our 9 prem matches. Sounds like it's time to expand the north stand.

Any work at the moment will be about putting up the stage & rigging for the concert later this week.

I can't believe the trees aren't Still Standing.

I was going to call the club while I was angry and give them a Rocket, Man. But from previous experience with their customer service, Sorry Seems to be The Hardest Word.

Then I calmed down and thought I suppose they have to Sacrifice something for this concert even if it is Breaking My Heart to see them go.

On the upside, I guess it will clear the skyline a bit so if you're in the south stand you'll be able to see the Sun Go Down.

Plus they might plant some saplings afterwards, so it's really only the Circle of Life.

So in the end I'm not totally depressed, just a little melancholy, a bit off-colour is the best way of putting it...I Guess That's Why They Call It The Blues.
