They haven't stuck a giant snakes head on the side...



But if you like it then that's cool....
It's a bit too subtle for the American public though

This is worth a watch.

A short film of West Ham fans' verdicts on their new stadium.

Never understood or watched any MLB. But it appeals to me in the same way Cricket does.

They play about 200 games a season dont they

New Nou Camp given the go-ahead.

It'll be incredible when it's done; it's in a real state of decay at the moment - went on the tour last year & the guide was telling us how it's falling apart in areas; some parts of the concrete stands have had to be securely propped up

How on earth are they going to fund it?!

I read elsewhere the current sponsors are looking to stump up £300m over 20 years to have their name on it. Who knows if that is realistic.

I went about ten years ago and it was crumbling then so work definitely needs to be carried out. It’s one of the most iconic stadiums in the world, so glad that it is remaining.

Just watched the video - that seems massively ambitious to build it over 4 seasons without moving stadium. Can’t see it.

Also Shane they have put a lid on it. I love the fact that it is exposed to the elements.

Yeah totally doable. It's like a massive version of what we did with the main stand.

In fact, Barca consulted the LFC group / engineers on how best to do it.

True, but ours was one stand over one season and one summer. The number of variables that could lead to a delay are far greater here. Will be a very impressive engineering feat if they pull it off.

Ours was about 18 months for the main build. Started in late winter and finished in September the following year. Two summers. One and a half seasons.

It's not so different at all.

They are looking at 4 years, and an entire stadium.

V One stand and 18 months.

ARE would be another 18 months or so.

That's like three years if they were done consecutively for half a stadium.

It really isn't that different.

Yeah, but there is a three year gap with the main stand and the ARE, not one consecutive 4 year build the logistics of managing it will be greater. The Barca build is 4 ‘sides’ consecutively, we didn’t need to worry about three sides of the stadium during the build.

Also, Barca structure and stadium is far bigger and the structure is in fairly poor condition meaning there will be more unknowns as the revamp plays out.

Is different. Same principal different challenges.

Pitch below water level with just a wall in between them. Like it. Not an unnecessary recipe for disaster at all.
