    Nope, I think that's pretty much what they'll look like complete. Most people (only us) wont see those faces of the ground.

    I think they will be closed in over time with cash flow coming in. The quality won't be the same as south I expect as nobody will see that side much.

    Some picture I took Yesterday, I must admit it look REALLY good close up , and as for the other stands , as has been mentioned earlier in this thread, now archived, the lower walls are breezeblock effectively which soaks up water, it will be cladded with something,to weatherproof it , it you look at CM`s pics the lift shaft area has the criss crossed bars over it , that is for the external cladding

    My Pictures

    from PX lane



    as you walk up the access road,



    they havent started to clad the west end of the south stand yet



    what will be the main reception



    you can see some internal dors and walls



    the red cladding looks reallly nice close up



    will look even better with the club badge on it



    and the east stand and car park



    east stand from PX rd

    Pre-Match drinks?
    try the George Hotel , George St
    St Helens , A real Saints pub

    The Tesco looks identical to the one in Prescot, I suppose they have a bog standard set of drawings for all new builds.

    Anyone else think that we could put a cross bar between the wide white posts of the main entrance to form a set of rugby posts?

    Would be fitting for our stadium!
    If you cut me in half i'd be white with a redvee!

    OK, are we to assume that the breezeblock level will be possibly cladded, as will the lift shaft(s), but all above the breezeblock level in the N, E, W stands will be left completely open? I hope not, it will look half-finished and such a huge disappointment compared with the magnificent south stand.

    Does anyone know if the outside edge of the roof is going to be cladded to hide the drain pipes and supporting steelwork, or is this the finished look?

    I'm not sure how many people would be interested to know this, but I've just heard through work that the new Stadium is no longer planning on hosting any Christmas Party night functions for this year.
    If it's true, it's a shame as it would have been a nice money maker pre-season!! (And I wonder what the reasons are behind this decision).

    Is that a deliberately added security feature that the opening windows open on to an upright so the will only open so far?!

    Seems odd!

    Yup. Ell Saint Blues reported this in the Stadium Watch 5 thread.

    My guess is that the internal fixtures and fittings won't be done in time to hold functions.
