    I've never known one of my comments that have been RT'd from someone I follow, show up on my timeline unless I look under your tweets retweeted.

    That's where the stadium control room will be.

    So there.

    This view shows up the roofline well. Damn shame about those buildings in front. The stadium would look very imposing, if only there was a view it could impose itself upon!

    But it really shows how small Arnold Clark's showroom is in comparison. As you said, it's a shame I couldn't have a clear view from the bridge

    No its the road before the PX bridge between the bridge and the retail park , the barr langtree entrance is the actual entrance to the site and as such is very dangerous for the public , which is why you got stopped

    try the George Hotel , George St

    It's not dangerous if you stick to the path that goes most of the way up that road. I've been up there a number of times taking pictures almost right to the security office and no one has said anything. The security have watched me taking pictures and some of the bosses too and not once have I been stopped or spoken to

    there is... ahem.. access via the hotties, where the old line runs through, theres some fencing missing... not that i'd know of course or alternativly there is access via the carpark of the gym in sutton, although you'd struggle for a view now as they've more or less finished the joining corner near warrington old rd.... still worth a walk past tho!

    Once all four corners are joined up, we will need someone really enterprising to take internal shots!

    The reason i got stopped is because on the day i went some bollards which were plugging a gap in the perimeter fence had blown over.It wasnt far from the security office and a guard came over to tell me i wasnt supposed to be there and he hadnt realised the bollards were down.

    On the second best saints fan forum, there are images from a poster on RLFans who somehow got inside and took pictures of what's going on. Some cracking shots and makes it look massive really.

    I'm on my phone so can't really paste a link but I'm sure you can find them if you want a peek. I'd recommend it!

    unless they were after druggies, the bobby I spoke to a couple of weeks back was only interested in plonkies and drugies.

    Shamelessly stolen. Still I doubt he will sue us given the reason that he was banned!

    Corner of North and East stand



    Corner of North and West stand




    Plastic sheeting going down on the south stand. Possibly a waterproof membrane on which is poured concrete???



    What looks like a disabled viewing platform on the south stand for the prawn sandwich eaters



    looking up towards the South stand executive suites



    Close up of the three seats, with no arm rests, much to Saddened's dismay.



    Looking towards the South east corner of the ground. Note the blue pipe pitch side. Could this be the mains pipe for the planned pitch irrigation system?



    heaven awaits

    Does anybody know if there is any plans to have anything spelt on in the stands with diffrent coloured seating like for example at widnes they have "vikings". Will we have "SAINTS" or "ST HELENS"?

    The Leeds one is a scam: they were told they need a big money stadium, so they fitted a giant HD telly and doubled Headingley's market value...
