Great work Adrian their and everyone else who work so hard for this club. Would not worry about phase two, let’s just get phase one done, thats the most important part, getting that stand built. It will also enhance the ground no end and make that side off the ground look so much better to look at which has in my opinion let the ground down. So good to see the ground revolving to make the mach day experience all the better, all so great use off the dugouts. ⚽️⚽️⚽️
From what I heard from that presentation, I would suggest phase 1 is the preparation for the new stand, ie the concrete base AB was standing on.
The second phase is probably the construction of the stand itself.
I, of course, could be wrong.
Think the concrete slab is where the goodliffe stand was, so by the looks off thing there’s a lot of ground work to do. I would imagine that the new stand will be up by the pitch to get a perfect view. We shall just have to wait and see what happens. ⚽️⚽️⚽️
Will the curva still be there because the new stand really should be by the pitch other wise won’t look right and also help with atmosphere of the ground, just have to wait and see ⚽️⚽️⚽️
Adrian states in his update that the removal of the Goodliffe Stand has restored the sightline from the top of la curva so, yes, la curva IS staying, at least for the foreseeable future.
I suspect that La Curva will go eventually if we continue to stay in the EFL and punch above our weight but the club has to have a minimum capacity of 5000 so La Curva will be there for a while. I do hope the new stand will be a lot closer to the pitch. It makes sense given the room we have. If we do a Luton then it will need to be
Are we squeezing a circa 1,000 seat stand between the curva and the current covered terracing? Surprised that is enough space. I always assumed the covered terrace would be going as part of this. If that is the case I don’t see how it can be closer to the pitch, perhaps similar to the away stand it can be moved relatively easily down the line as put together with nuts and bolts.
ggl: So are we now saying we have a manager who is not in favour of bringing in loan players and if the board decided to part company with him they cannot afford to do so ?

historyboy: So sorry to hear about the passing of Eddie Clack. I Remember him well.

historyboy: Sad to hear of the passing of Eddie Cack, I remember him well. I think that the said photograph publishsed by the club, of him sitting next to Dave Hermitage, isn't him at all; I think the picture shows Micky Goodall. Compare other pictures of both.

scorpioeyes: It certainly would be 'convenient' for Dover to have the season washed out. if they fail to turn up tomorrow,we should be awarded the game and 3-0 to our goal difference.Why should we be inconvenienced by any attempts to rearrange the game?

Burtie: Hello chaps. Is there any intelligence about the crowd situation for the game vs Hartlepool on 22 May? Does the club have a position on supporters?

scorpioeyes: I think these odds are quite amazing. If I was a neutral looking at the recent form and upcoming fixtures,I'd make hartlepool or perhaps Torquay as fave for the title. To have 'pool at 9s and us as evens is bizarre.

valiant: Hello again! Can you tell me where the away seating is please? I thought it was behind the goal next to the away terrace but looking at the film on Quest I can't see it! Thanks.

pinewalker: There is a temporary stand at 45 degrees to the pitch behind the NE corner flag, and there is more away seating at the east end of the main stand both accessed via the away turnstiles.

holmesdale96: Sorry to hear of Danny's death, a real loss. I saw him regularly during the 90's at his home in Streatham, always charged the same small fee for years, an absolute gentleman with his dear wife Rose. RIP Danny
