Perhaps Saturday we'll see the progress when we beat Chelsea live on sky.

A mate who lives near the Cottage told me the crane lifted the latest roof truss up today ready to be bolted on. He is a Fulham Supporter who can see the roof from his kitchen 👍😎

Most of West London can see that roof from their window 😳

Well I live in Ellerby Street and I can’t see it.

It's a different stand to any place else alright.

But does anyone feel this stand over emphasises it's size in one shot, then looks small in another?

It's bigger than the Riverside and Hammersmith Stands, sometimes hard to gauge by how much.  Feel it'll look a lot better when the bottom tier is visible, even though it's an usually small bottom tier.

Nice aerial shots on BT.

Considering the roof was put together elsewhere and brought up the river, I'm surprised it's taking so long to put it all together. They started putting those roof sections on a month ago.

Interesting to see the roof sections going up - was watching last nights game with the bad weather and was thinking of the roof coverage - Does it look like the roof is short? anyone sitting in the first 15 to 20 or so rows in the new stand look like they would get soaked on a night like last night

One section at a time down the river by barge. Lot to take into account doing that as explained on one of the videos

It's only every other section put up in whole pieces, the infills still need to be put together on site bit by bit.

Getting soaked at football matches is a hazard wherever you sit If the wind blows in the wrong direction

The last roof piece on the end, towards the Putney End, has been put on. Think it went on yesterday.   The terracing has also made its way all across. I will try to pop down to the river tomorrow and get a photo or two, but we're bound to have some inside and out due to the match.

Who's booking the swimming pool for Lincoln at home?

Sounds really exciting 😂


In actual fairness, I find the Championship much more entertaining.

We need to give the new stand a funny name. Let me get back to you....

How about naming it the Travellers Stand.
