I love the humour but the hard work has already begun and it will be good when next season starts and we can all see the progress. Meanwhile thanks for this

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?
That's long been the plan. http://www.fulhamfc.com/news/2017/december/01/fulham-fc-submits-riverside-plans

Could we agree that, once the foundations are in place.  The new stand, which is fairly small by modern standards (of teams in the top 2 divisions)  Should shoot up out of no where then? 

Still think it'll be a nice little stand when inside the ground. Definitely not big or the biggest, definitely far far from the best. But that's definitely what makes Fulham. Fulham. 

No pillars will be nice though!

Sorry mate but physically the stand is not small by any stretch of the imagination. Its a seven level structure made to look even bigger due to a distintive & unique roof which appears to hover over it, it dwarves the current stand .
It loses capacity at either end due to the apartments, if allowed to continue you probably could've squeezed another 1500 or so seats in.
 You say far far from the best?? You do realise this is one of the most expensive single stands built in this country right ? For a demanding owner well used to the superb facilities available at stadiums in the USA, for 100 million quid rest assured it will be as good , not as big , as nearly anywhere in Britain

Fulham sending out leaflet to locals about stand redevelopment's effect on Bishops Park and materials arriving on site

With the compound behind the Putney Bridge stand why not get that done after the Riverside? Even though I am a massive fan of the Riverside we are developing the only true stand we have. I can’t stand the temporary scaffolding seating in the other 3 stands!

To have the Putney end down too would be amazing. A two tiered stand again, put a tv gantry up there too and sit the away fans up there.... just like spurs used to at WHL

I was told ( a very reliable source ) that when MAF was granted permission to redevelop the Riverside Stand in 2012 that he was also looking at plans for the Putney End. I was told this a few months before his Riverside plans were approved.

Good luck delivering steels and any other large item to site. Narrow roads and 90 degree bends!?!

I'm assuming most materials will get to the site via the Thames.

On the larger stuff probably. Tide would be fun!

All the smaller, pallet stuff, i expect would come via lorry.

Anyone know if the changing rooms will move to the Riverside in the new design? Or staying where they are (with the walk across the pitch to the dugouts?)

The cottage side of the river is shallow. With no discernable flow and very muddy. Can't see anything being delivered via the river.

That is when the tide is out !

I presume deliveries will be timed to take advantage of the tide and there's supposed to be a pontoon in the river too

Think there is a target of 40% of all the work to go via the river.
