A bit more than just tractor watch this season, with work on the Main Stand apparently well under way, judging by the scaffolding in place as of last week. The removal of some of those supporting pillars should really improve the view for a good portion of the stand.

As an aside, thought the pitch held up brilliantly last season. Can’t be many clubs south of the Championship not to have a home game called off all season.

Think it's a pity that roof on the main stand can't come straight out like the pontoon roof, obviously would costs would be a factor.

Ridiculous. People are complaining about the amount of posts restricting the view, then they put more up……

As someone who sits in the much maligned 'back of the main' I'm buzzing to see the posts being removed. Will soon have the best warmth/view ratio of all the stands.

There's a lot of history in them pillars.

Saw them up into small pieces and auction them off.

Every little helps £££


When Leeds trainer Les Cocker was once told Norman Hunter had broken a leg, he asked: “Whose is it?”

Absolutely, they’ll have seen some things over the years. Ironically, the very things the people sat directly behind them will have missed.

Have they explained what work is to be done, will they be removing all the pillars and what will hold up the roof?

Wooden pillars are being replaced with steel beams, won't be as many beams in so improving views.

I would imagine the wooden uprights will be removed and half the number will be replaced with metal  . Then the main wooden cross beams will also be replaced with metal girders . U.T.M.
