    Hence the Boxing Day game never being on the cards - it was never more than rumour, speculation and "it'd be nice if we could but we won't know if we can do it until the build is complete".

    But hey, feel free to take rumours as gospel and then rip my head off - I'm guessing that high horse you're on is bucking?
    Bridge guys were told come what may it had be complete for boxing day. It had stood for 7 week or so whilst ground issues were sorted. If it happens great if not so be it I'd sooner it be opened when it's complete.

    Indeed, but I think the concern was about the relative size of the gap as on the plans. Clealry this has been changed (for whatever reason) for the North Stand as additional planning permission has been sort. Remains to be seen if similar applies to the other 2 stands. Though have to say I have got used to looking at it now and its nice to see a bit of the architecture.

    Would be great to have a similar see-through look like the Emirates to let the natural light in!

    Saints Webmaster - Planning permission has been granted for the North Stand to be fully cladded (with a small gap at the top) - it has had to be reconfigured due to wind resistance etc. I will find out about the other stands.
    .....................

    I wonder how "small" the gap is at the top of the North stand? It looks like the standing population might be a bit more open to the elements!

    I'm taking full credit for this as I'm 'Colin' who asked the question! I thought the only way to get a true answer was to go to the horses mouth itself. Hope we get the answer re terraced stands also soon.

    Was anyone listening intently to Stevo and Eddie or is that a stupid question!

    I hope you are right, but I'd prefer to hold my judgement until the 'Saints Webmaster' gives us a definitive answer - see post #94 for relevant info.

    It won't be at the new stadium then?
    And does it give any kind of edge compared to ordinary turf?

    How do you figure that ? It will still get wet, sweaty and probably get blood on, so the kit still needs washing after it's been worn......or do you only wash your clothes when there's physical signs of dirt on them ??

    I was listening to the boss man at the bridge site speaking to the police, he said the bridge will be handed over late October.

    Due to the lack of real information from the club on the cladding debate I have moved from North to the South Stand. Happy in the knowledge that I will have my half time bevvy in an enclosed environment.

    futtocks, have look at the outside course of breeze block, its not your ordinary run of the mill stuff, its a darker grey and smoother, it looks like the weather resistant stuff, for me the cladding will sit on top of the breeze block wall, not against it.
    speaking to the beat bobby he said they have been told it will be enclosed.

    Me too! After being exposed to the elements at KR for years, didn't fancy the same at the New Stadium.

    Last time i put some up which was a while back it was 80 per m2 fixed. It's not cheap as a material but relatively low cost to fix.
