    Off the top of my head, as well as the ones posted, there is Eddington bar (away end), Aussie saints bar, Kiwi saints bar, Murphys bar & Vols bar. Vols bar is in the away end (they said it was because it was less likely to damaged than any of the others there as he was respected by other clubs fans) & the others are dotted around the concourse.

    The tour was great. I'm really impressed with the facilities. The changing rooms are fantastic especially the warm up room (complete with the same "turf" as the widnes pitch). The corporate/hospitality facilities are great & I really hope the club make a lot of money from them. Love the murals all around the concourse & also in the corridors of the hospitality suites. The views from the disabled areas are fantastic. The whole stadium is very spacious & well laid out. The extra cladding should be starting in the next few weeks.

    Well impressed with the bar signs - very atmospheric. The internal fit-out really shows the benefits of owning your own stadium - goes up a notch evry time I see it.

    Our tour guide sain the north definitely not being cladded - only the ends. To be honest i dont think the north needs it. The roof is much deeper over the north end. You kind of have to be in the stand to see what i mean

    Yeah I heard the North isn't gonna get cladded too which really annoys me to be honest!

    Although as your stated its not as crucial as the East and West needing to be cladded, as that the main wind directions and the concourses are much shallower in East and West, I really feel disappointed and slightly neglected as a north stander.

    The planning application was granted for North stand cladding too so it must be a decision by Saints to save money as the noth stand is the least visible to passers-by and away fans so maybe does not impact the image of both Saints and LP as much if it's incomplete due to Saints saving money!

    Poor form Saints, really disappointed that the icing can't be put on what would be a great cake!

    I really think it would only add aesthetics. It may be better for the pitch not to have cladding on one edge.

    Sat in your nor stand seat there is a huge concrete platform behind you and then the centre part is cladded and the edges will be 20 to 30 feet behind you so no adverse weather implications.

    Ill give you a wave from the fully cladded south stand

    I really cant see anyone being disappointed with Langree park. Having been around it yesterday i really cant wait to go back. And the saints gold is a good pint :0)

    disappointed aint the word I would use if its true that the North stand isn't to be cladded, I would have thought there was enough evidence to suggest it did need cladding from the last time we where there, the North stand concourse was wet through, also reports of the North West corner seats being wet, both corners of the North stand are vulnerable to the weather.

    Is it right though that those of us who have paid significantly more get worse facilities than the terraces? I know what I thought I was getting when I paid for my season ticket and I'm not.

    Why is the South Stand getting significantly better facilities for the same price?

    At the end of the day, they have moved the goalposts again without having the decency to inform anyone. That's Saints for you. Communication only comes when you give them a hypothetical Chinese Burn to force them to do so.

    I agree it will mostly be aesthetics that a clad north stand will bring as when sat down like you said it won't make much of difference. When in the concourse though it can get wet if its raining and if it's high winds which does produce an issue!

    This business of it being better for the pitch as more air can get to it as one side isn't clad is a load of nonsense, old Trafford is probably twice as high as LP and yet somehow the players at pitch level continue to breath and survive so I'm sure LP will be fine if the North was clad with 50% perforated cladding.

    I am disappointed and feel a bit let down that LP won't be finished as it is excellent apart from this one issue!

    Haha I'll give you a wave back.....all be it with a semi-closed fist!
