I know its a very complex build but the stand is taking ages to come down. Was there a couple of weeks ago & hardly anything done since then . Didn't seem too much going on there when I went although it was a friday so it was probably POETS day for the builders

When you look at the picture from the hammy end, it shows how basic stands are really

Funny, that struck me looking at that picture. Admittedly, we Riversiders don't move around a great deal.

Can somebody answer a question for me, looking at a picture of the new stand in the brochure they sent out with the season ticket applications,  it struck me that there doesn't appear to be any pitch facing hospitality boxes going across the width of the stand, is that correct ?
Surely it's my mistake as that must be where all the big money is at any football ground.

Thank you for the update, interesting.
Think we are not seeing rapid progress because all efforts are going into completing the 31 (?) piles being driven into the Thames to take the weight of the structure.

The thought of 31 piles is putting me off my tea!

its telling that there isn't and I'm led to believe that comes from Khan in his belief that the real money is made within and on the other side of the stand and he wanted seats instead of boxes facing the pitch.

He must think the toffs would rather sit and view the river than watch football.

He could well be right.  At Wimbledon and Queen's the hosts are surprised if a guest expresses a desire to watch the tennis.

but also with a football ground only in use maybe 25 times a year the other 340 days bring in extra on that side.

Are boxes even that lucrative anyway? The average box must take up the space of about 50 seats.

Rupert and Tarquin think that muddied oafs are rather vulgar. How much better to watch the privileged sculling the afternoons away on the tide....

Some very interesting photos showing the extent of the preparation / work in progress. I was going to collect some such photos for historical posterity, but this saves me doing so.

If anyone is interested I have a collection of photographs of the old Thamesbank terrace being prepared and the new (now old) Riverside stand being erected which I can post on here (If I remember how to!) or if the Mods would prefer, on another new thread...

Sure does. And for that reason, I'd imagine July 2021 would be feasible for having the new seating used on matchdays, even if not all the lounges etc. within were fully-fiitted out for the first few weeks.

Even fewer of the facilities facing the river would be essential for Matchday 1.

Ideally everything is completely finished in time, but there is a lot that could overrun without preventing football in the meantime.

In Saturdays programme Shad khan says the stand is expected to be completely demolished by the end of the year
