Is the main entrance nearly finished? Doesn't look like the one in the designs. Also why haven't they started on the seating lower tier while we have good weather? Apparently bad weather for next week

The stone cladding on the entrance will be started early next week.
The seat installers spent last weekend drilling holes for the seats on the terrace and still have some to do. Then you'll see the seats go in at a phenomenal rate. I was quoted about 400 a day. :shock:
Don't know about the facade.

I would love to have the club crest etched into the glass on the front doors at the main entrance.

Also the block paving leading up to the main doors would also look nice to have the club crest inlaid into the paving.

All nice to have rather than essential. Cosmetic changes do nothing to improve the football.

Its about presentation, professionalism and first impressions for future players and investors

Totally. It’s the little touches that make somewhere look as if it’s a premium facility and... relevant to attracting players and staff... ‘going places.’

Thankfully Simon Hallett agrees, as he specifically mentioned Andrew Parkinson’s attention to detail and those little touches at Anfield, that he was so impressed by when we played Liverpool.

We are a second division club with a mid table team. Lets concentrate on the more important aspects of running a club like the players! Little touches can wait until we have achieved something.

Believe it or not, different people at the club have different jobs.

I suspect the person managing the football team isn’t also in charge of the interior design.

I see the angle of the pipe brining the water above the main entrance is allowing the water to flow over the top and not all down the pipe. I hope a member of the building staff are watching.

But all expenses come out of the same pot.

Just looked at the 3D drawings on the PCC site and it looks much the same to me.

“Little touches” as you describe them, will not add any significant cost or time to the project but they may significantly improve the overall visual impression of the Ground and reinforce our identity. They are features which you will see at virtually all Premiership and Championship stadiums.

Such”little touches” off the field will have absolutely no effect on matters on the field, but that’s because there's no correlation between them.
