    It will be a crying shame of the stadium is left how it is. What about all those assurances we were getting from the club (Eamon included) that it would be done soon. He even said in time for the Wigan game, as I seem to recall.

    basically Saints have lied to our faces which is slightly annoying, more so the fact that cladding is not fitted by now... ah well, we're only minions lol

    The distraction caused by the coaching debacle has enabled Saints to bury this subject for the time being. Well it's time to resurrect it ! Stadium Watch 9 lives on!

    lastest moan from one of the DW tenants, a letter in RLE says 'who in their right mind allowed a stadium to be built where the nearest coach park is over a mile from the stadium?'
    she goes one to say that many Wigan fans 'were left gasping for air'

    am I right in thinking the coaches are parked off Sherdley Road, less than half a mile away?

    About a 6th of a mile away I think.

    Gasping for air!?

    I read an article by the rugby league writer in the Wigan Evening Post last wednesday saying that he was distinctly underwhelmed by our new stadium and that it wasnt as good as other top stadiums in super league including 'theirs'.He would say that though wouldnt he?

    The main moan from wigan was the distance the handicapped had to walk.

    There's disabled parking isn't there, the only parking at the ground I believe is for players and disabled bays.

    "Theirs" is a football stadium that they rent, so not a Super League stadium.

    Its a bit like me renting a Porsche and saying "my car" is better than the top of the range Mercedes that you own.

    Being from Wigan doesn't make you "handicapped"
    Bit of exercise will do them good if they're "gasping for air" after that walk and if they have parked a stupid distance away then that's their fault, idiots!!

    I wouldn't think our coach park is any further from the ground than the one at Wigan Athletics ground.They're just jealous

    That's because of all the pies they eat.......just a thought if we had laid a trial of pies from the coach park to ground would they have been gasping for air then !. At least they didnt have to walk across a parking area that added height to your shoes when raining

    I think we should all start referring to the pies ground as Wigan Athletics Stadium from here on in.

    I don't think anyone seriously believed it was going to happen. It's the usual story when someone kicks up a fuss. They get fobbed off with information that will make them happy hoping they will go away.

    After the Wigan game I would be happier if they clad the inside of the terraces up to roof level on the three exposed stands if that was all the money they had, on the basis they can only clad the outside to just over half way anyway. It was actually like watching a game at Wakefield or Batley with all the atmosphere escaping outside the back of the stand but more importantly the game being exposed to all the elements that new stadiums tend to eradicate; i.e. a slight breeze being whipped up into a gale because of the exposed nature of the construction.

    I'll always maintain it was a rotten design and the woman who said that Wigan's ground was far better was right. My opinion is that Warrington's is better too.

    The main flaw of the design personally is the atmosphere which just escapes too easily - it just doesn't stay within the stadium.

    I quite like this idea:

    On a playing perspective: the wind that swirls round is ridiculous really and Jamie Foster (if that's his name, can barely remember him) said it was up there for one of the most difficult stadiums, along with Hull KR, to kick a conversion.
