Looks great, BUT, I'm always going to be a hammy ender.

Me too, but definitely want to watch a game from the new stand.

Are they going to fill in (possibly with glass) the back part below the roof?
Otherwise the seats are well open to the elements.

Just Imagine it on a day like today.

Thanks - I love the openness, the sense of space and light. Wonder what the plan is for Putney & Hammy Ends?

Why are the seats blue?

I believe they have covers on to protect them from the building work.

Yes - towards the end of the video, the contractor said that glass is soon due to be installed all across the back.

Having watched the video with close-ups of them being installed - I would say that the seats are grey rather than blue.

The seats are black, it's the thick plastic coverings that make them look grey

Whether we fill it or not, whether it’s too large or whatever other complaints have been raised I feel immensely proud and excited that this will be part of Craven Cottage and can’t wait to take my seat in it.  Wouldn’t mind a Friday night in the hotel pre match but suspect the wallet might not stretch that far

Every update just takes your breath away, it really is more than just another stand and makes the old Riverside stand look like such a basic utility affair.

Leaving aside that the seats are obviously not going to be blue, there shouldn’t be any prohibition on that colour. Our club’s first colours were dark and light blue.  Chelsea have used white away kits and brentford did this year. It’s far better to dilute than to allow a club to own a colour.

Seems most are impressed and excited about this stand.
I wonder if they will give some slack to the Khans, in light of this, or whether it will be irrelevant to their feelings towards our owners?
I personally feel they are doing a great job in a very difficult sport and certainly only doing their best - to me that’s all we can ask for.

This thread is so positive and at the moment the most enjoyable on this board, lets hope all goes well and within the next year we see a magnificent conclusion.
The climax will be on choosing a suitable and bold name for the stand, no doubt this will be kept secret until very late.
