My commute involves the twin delights of negotiating the Twickenham station re-build and the re-vamp of the old Eurostar platforms at Waterloo station.  Both have been, in their own way, interesting to see develop and I expect the Riverside Stand will be too.  Large expanses of time with not much apparently happening followed by occasional spurts would seem to be the norm.

What's happening to the Eurostar platforms at Waterloo? Would be interested to know. I used to commute into Waterloo until about 18 years ago and haven't been there since Eurostar moved to ST Pancras.
The five platforms (20-24) should have been returned to normal use by last May, and there was an intention to turn the former Eurostar Terminal Building into a shopping mall.  Running a reliable train service to schedule may follow at some indefinite time in the future, if you can still afford to use it ...
Yes indeed. Platforms 20-24 have achieved the same [insert adjective or expletive of choice] level of service as 1 - 19.

Would’ve expected to see a bit more of the Stand down by now. Maybe, after Saturday when they have a clear fortnight  before the ground is required again and more progress will be seen as per the the master schedule.
Don’t worry about the o/t rates, get them in Sunday and crack on.
Come on you Buckingham boys.

I had forgotten that Peabody. An iconic name for the club from playing to coaching and that pillock sacks him. Mind you Beddy left on a sour note. Why do these things happen?  :031: :031: :031: :031:

I was only young but remember feeling quite pleased when that bloke was appointed due to his Ajax, Barcelona background.
Came in and scythed our club apart.
Glad to see the back of him.

There must be a timeline for the project, it maybe available to us. If it is, when will the stand be down?

I think it was letting Mullerry go to Spurs without consutation that resulted in Beddy leaving. What a record Beddy had as player and manager for us, I challenge any one to match it.

After we played a (southern?) semi v Wycombe in the Autoglass at home, I remember the programme the following game was asking if anyone had found a prosthetic leg that was lost whilst celebrating the Wycombe win in the away end. I always thought it was a wind up, but there seems to be fossilised evidence to the contrary!
