From Robert Wood on Twitter @robertW1948

1971/72 programmes gave updates on the New Stand and an explanation that the £250,000 cost wouldn't stop our spending on players






These are in fact the next ones I was going toshow, will still do so as they are slightly larger...

Didn’t look like much progress on the demolition last night, but the amount of barges and kit in the river is pretty impressive.

I expected the demolition work to be further advanced by now, is the job on programme or has there been slippage already.

Seems so odd seeing the Riverside undressed like this.

Why would you think that??

Interesting to see LB11 photo with one mess hut in the corner of the ground not a crane in sight. Health and safety has come a long way since then. I don’t remember an overlap in the park. There may have been but I was only young and didn’t go that way

I remember this. It was said that the £250,000 had to be spent then or the cost would rocket and become unaffordable. We were compared to Pompey who instead splashed an equivalent sum on players - they went one way and we the other.

But that was a long time ago before the days of billionaire owners.

They seem to be dismantling it bit by bit rather than just demolishing it?

Are they looking to recycle parts of the stand elsewhere?

Can't just bash it down, this would result in millions of bits of sharp and dangerous concrete debris getting onto the pitch. Has to be carefully dismantled.

LOL, you can’t just demolish it. Makes me laugh how fans think CC is just a building site! The only access is by boat, one tide per day, so it has to be dismantled bit by bit, stored on the very small section of plot, then shipped out, whilst everyone continues to work.

I think we're going need a bigger boat
