If they're knackered, they're knackered.

Sounds like a power issue rather than structural. I don't want to see them go either. Used to have some Subbuteo floodlights which looked very much like them. But given the advances in the technology, it's the equivalent of lighting your house with candles.

Perhaps they can be partially moved to a new stadium? I won't read anything into this..

Sell the floodlights back to Wolves as historic Wolverhampton artefacts.

They must be the oldest in the EFL by now so maybe get them listed and see if we can attract any grant funding to maintain

Cut them up and turn them into unique industrial garden furniture / sculpture and keep some pieces back for an architectural feature at any new ground

Or JF run up there in his red overalls and a tin of hammerite

Why the club haven't moved to LED is baffling as the cost to replace the old light will be recouped in a short time, also LED lights have a longer life due to the nature of the fitting. Example if you have 50 watt Halogen lights in your kitchen and you have 10 of these the power consumption will be 500 watts per hour you could replace those with LED's which operate at 5 to 8 watt for the same light output so 50 to 80 watts, factor in days/weeks/months it can save you a lot of money.

What is the rating of a Each floodlights at BP, x No lights on a stanchion x4 stanchions = Massive savings.

This is a prime example of where costs can be saved but we wait for things to start to fail before  thinking ahead, reactive rather than proactive.


Supporting the Mighty Mariners for over 30 years, home town club is were the heart and soul is and it's great to be a part of it.

Perhaps Dale Vince could give us a quote


Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day,teach a man to fish and you give him an excuse for him to escape from the wife and kids for the weekend and drink lots of beer.

Maybe he should invest in GTFC rather than FGR. It’s a better fit what with the growing renewables sector out of the Humber. Building an eco friendly ground IN A TOWN with rail connections, and which will be used by more people than off a motorway in the middle of nowhere is far more sustainable, and it’ll help regenerate a poor area. That’s got to be a much better message for an old Crusty like DV.

One for the many obvious floodlighting experts on here:

I notice in the article that the new lights will be on pylons that can be lowered /hinged (?) down for easy access (when Fenty wants to change a bulb presumably) but how is that going to work in the Main Stand / Osmond corner?

Speaking of lights, I noticed in Saturday that the lights in the upper findus stand have been changed for led ones.
