    Aye....I know the decision has been made to name the Stagecoach after Adam Stansfield,a player who died in service,I am not knocking the decision & understand why it was made,but i think Tony Kellows name on the new stand would have been more appropriate.His name was well know in football across the country when he was in his prime.

    Iím sure many will disagree with me about that..Adams legacy is already well remembered at SJP...A difficult call Iím sure for the club with all of the sentiment around.

    Precisely! Possibly something a little more tongue in cheek.....'Standy McStandface'?

    I actually quite like the idea of calling it the Barn, it links with Cowshed.

    But what about the City End ? Geographically good and it's gonna mess with the away fans heads when buying tickets.

    People will think they're coming to a farm, Billy. Tongue in cheek, perhaps?

    For the second time in this thread, I'm agreeing with Elgy. What's going on?

    Stanno is a different case for the NOG and very appropriate.
    I still say just The St. James Rd Stand
    Isn't the big bank the Bastin Stand?
    Tony Kellow stand for me. Still all over the opposition from beyond the grave!

    Thatchers BB ..Though it’s named after a cider rather than a former PM ..

    Kellow stand for the away end !! Never.I would prefer if it was just called the St James Rd end,rather than name a secondhand stand after a true Grecian legend.

    Obviously you rejected 'The Shed'? That would mess with their heads geographically, especially if they are travelling from near Gatwick Airport! A big game across town in West London!!!
