Home Park's floodlights to be upgraded to "Championship standard" over the summer..........

https://www.pafc.co.uk/news/2021/may/fl ... home-park/
If that tanoy system is championships level I've got better speakers at home they're only 1200w.
Absolutely pisspoor. Tuesday night made us look like amateurs. And who is the club announcer I seen more personality in a dead fish. No enthusiasm and seemed like he didn't want to be there. If argyle want to have someone with some personality I'm available and promise to leave my max and chicken at home.

Its happening all over the country. they have no money for the upkeep and so as to put a positive spin on it they are saying its eco friendly blah blah blah. Its complete 8ull5h17 and some road junctions are so overgrown you cant see oncoming traffic. Its going to take a major accident and fatality for the 5h17 to hit the fan and anything be done about it. Its a disgrace and this country is rapidly going down hill
They have. They chose to spend it on other things. Take a bow rusty Reg.

Agreed. The pitch was lit up a lot better and the Barn Park lights were not shining in our faces in the Demport. Well done PAFC a good upgrade👏

We were right down by the dugouts Paul. The difference on the pitch was really noticeable.

Job well done I'd say.
The tannoy was nice and loud yesterday, perhaps a little too loud as it was sometimes a bit hard to decipher what Andy B was saying.
But on the whole, it's so bleddy good to be back.
Agree, the lighting was excellent - almost forgot the lights were on at times, they give such a natural light.
The tannoy was a tad loud, causing some problem hearing with clarity.
Thankfully the music volume before and at half-time was much better. Could listen to it and talk to people nearby.
Presumably the usual announcer will be back for the league season....?

good to hear that the lighting is vastly improved. Presumably it will improve further once the company returns to complete the job as per Graham Clark’s previous post.

Also worth noting that if that Grandstand-Devonport corner is going to be tidied up, the club would probably be waiting for the floodlight post to be removed first.

I have to say off the pitch you have to be impressed. Some of the way we are going about upgrades on facilities is really impressive.

The club is going in the right direction. Off the field we are very professional and Argyle TV is a new platform showcasing our club in such a positive way.

My only concern is if things don’t go well on the field. I hope Simon Hallett understands that Argyle fans will be critical and l just hope he doesn’t take it personally. Everything since his ownership has been positive but on field if things carry on like they did last season then fans will criticise the club because what matters the most to fans is watching good football. If results are iffy but football is good then l think most fans are realistic. However, if football is dour and results aren’t good, like last season, fans will vote with their wallet.

When the new lights were switched on the difference was instant, with a cloudy sky it started to look gloomy but the lights quickly brightened up the view of the pitch.
The pre-match music was turned down a few levels allowing the fans to have a chat without shouting. 👍

That's my fear as well. His 'why do I bother' comment on Twitter the other day really shook me. We have some knobhead fans and he WILL come in for criticism at some stage and they will show their displeasure in a way that most decent people won't agree with.

My concern from his comment the other day is here is a man totally invested in his vision. I totally understand he has an opinion that comes from a great background of business. So he has the experience to fall back on. Yet l also believe a football fan is a customer and has a right to provide any constructive criticism.

However, what really concerns me is the on field stuff. He is a fan. He is emotional invested with Ryan Lowe. If things go similar to last season and the fans get on his back if they loose faith in Lowe, how will he react? That’s my worry. Especially if he choose to carry on supporting Lowe but the fanbase loose the faith. You might say but the majority are behind Lowe. That’s true. However, the majority were behind Adams but patience just snapped like a tidal wave.

l hope if Lowe proves to be unsuccessful that Simon Hallett won’t be upset by the criticism that will come the clubs way if Lowe keeps choosing to ignore ongoing on field issues with his system and style of play.

I notice the ugly lamppost floodlights are still in place in front of Bobby’s Garden - didn’t someone mention earlier that the lighting company were due back last week to finish off the work? If so, are those lights now staying put? Anyone know?

I ran past the ground today and the big 'box' that has been sat outside the Devonport End for ages has now gone.

I'm surprised to read some recent posts praising the tannoy system. At the Middlesbrough friendly is was STILL absolutely appalling and completely unintelligible from the middle/back of the Lyndhurst Stand. It doesn't help that the person speaking tends to speak too quickly and not very clearly but mostly I get the feeling that it is just not a very good system (but maybe not as bad as the sound for a gig at the Pavilions...)
