Things are starting to move on now. With the ground levelled off the supports are being hammered into position for the tiers to be built
The place looks bare with the North and East Stands gone. But will look mighty impressive when completed - 13 August Vs Cardiff

 The concrete bases are now complete for the North & East Stands. Should start erecting the early part of next week. 
    Week Beginning 12 July 2004 (32 days to go)
And there it was GONE! No more marquee  Open air drinking as the block paving makes way for the foundations
 Mike and Rocket say there sad farewells to a an old friend Oh, hang on a minute Rocket I spy 10p on the floor
    The North Stand base is now all wired up and ready for the concrete to be poured in. I hope Coventry enjoy the well loved stand as much as we did!   
   The East side of the stadium looking all forlorn as the it sits there waiting for the new covered 4,000 seater to go up 
 All the foundations are in now. Erection of the new stand should begin very soon Everyone is working extremely hard getting all the new facilities in place for the 13 August against Cardiff. make sure you are all there, we are go9ng to need a lot of supporters to fill the New Sixways

Aaah... The new East Stand... Season ticket holders were told that there would be bars under the Stand - which there were.

Unfortunately the truth was "massaged". What we weren't told was that the bars were not enclosed - the back of the Stand was completely open to the elements! It was absolutely freezing there in the winter, until the second stage of the development was completed. sad smiley
