Love how people just assume you stick up a building, and that is that, Christ..

There will be surveys to perform, archaeological scrapes, cairns/platforms set up to load/unload materials, and what people also forget, is that they will have to work with the tide of the the Thames.

Also, the underpinning will take its time, nothing will really move until this is done, as the stand will rely on this for it's foundations.

Can't help some fans, moaned when it wasn't going ahead, moaned when it did, now moaning that it's to slow!  :doh: 

Agree. Working in construction there is always a project tipping point, particularly on large projects. It can seem like not much is being achieved on site, but it is all the stuff that you cannot see. Then suddenly over the space of the last few months (probably 6 months in our case) a building suddenly and 'quickly' appears and takes shape.

Yes some serious work going on there, people in Pink High Viz they dont hand them out to just anybody.

The club should put a live stream camera on the other side of the Thames so we can watch the progress.

Apparently they have already dug up 47 old footballs, most of them from shots from our players that never hit the target! 
Must have been Zamora
Zamora?

Tosh Chamberlain more like.
Anyone know how he is? Well up into to eighties I believe.
Hope he is well.

Nah... Tosh's misses went into Bishop's park or Stevenage road (depending on which end). more likely to  be from John Chenhall's clearances - there's a rumour that one ended up in a barge and turned up in Greenwich. Now THAT's a long kick!

Not many balls in the river next season as I expect the Riverside stand to be there all winter.

The first works will be on the river putting in piling and to establish footings for the new stand. Only when that is completed will they demolish the present stand.

I may be wrong but I would have thought knocking down the present stand first would destabilise the foundations possibly affecting the present Riverside wall.

Looking forward to moving back to the Riverside on completion.

Any idea where the dugouts will be?

I used to do a lot in the exhibition business.  We always reckoned once the Hoover came it was job done!

So, they are extending the marine break wall further in to the river? Assume they are widening the walk way and people will be able to walk along the river behind the new stand?
