Anyone heard when the work on the removal of the post is starting obviously the ground staff will need time to repair any pitch side damage. I suspect it may have been delayed until league status was assured cos I have a feeling that if relegation had happened we may have been playing in front of an  empty main stand

If we had been relegated then a few areas would be empty next season

Absolutely, but there’s a lot less uptake if you’re NL.

The main stand needs a lot of work if they don't plan on replacing it , I had a good walk about Saturday and my first thought was the paintwork or lack off around the back and the amount of dirt, mould and grime coating the structure.  Probably an easy fix with a decent clean and paintwork . Obviously there are bigger issues to fix but there are seemingly some easy wins down there .

The whole ground needs some serious investment but the more I look around the more I think it has the potential to be our home  longer term than many of us would want .

Hopefully they can attract some inward investment sooner rather than later so major improvement can happen .

They have done a sterling job with the pitch , It's nice to see us having one of the best pitches in the league once more even in April with 0 games called off all season.  It should get better and better with a full  4 months off .

Careful look at the Corporation Bridge, on closer examination if not already done to "The Main" could be a can of worms not just a lick of paint and scrub up , love the old girl.

The first time I have looked closely around  behind 'the main' and I am by no means a structural expert but can't imagine the green mould or whatever it is allover the wood can be doing it much good ?

The only way it can be described is as sort of a thick green foam really , on the dark wood .

Sounds fine. I don’t wash the car as I don’t want to get rid of the protective layer of dirt it currently has.

Removal (or significant reduction) of the number of posts has surely got to be the top priority. I'd really like to know if this is definitely happening this summer before I renew my Season Tickets in the Main Stand.
