I hope the club is not forced into a financial dilemma due to the OG (or parts of) possibly being condemned in the near future. I've always thought that if in general terms something needs regular upkeep and maintenance, "paint it every 2 years" and it will for go on indefinitely........"do nothing to maintain" and you can expect it to fall apart and have to be completely rebuilt sooner than you expect.Seems to me that the OG is even more of a wreck this season. One of the window panels (end nearest BB) was taken out very early on in the season. Parts of the roof/ceiling have girt big cracks in them. Ivy is growing through the corrugated sheets.......if it gets throiugh H&S for next season, it will be a miracle.
This is I agree the downside risk - as I alluded in referring to what Julian Tagg said.I hope the club is not forced into a financial dilemma due to the OG (or parts of) possibly being condemned in the near future.
Therein lies our problem imho.So how many times have we sold our away allocation in recent years ?
The OG is old and tatty but Shirley not decrepit and is ceratinly not too small, we couldn't even sell out the ground for the Gargs.
A standing area to the side of the pitch at SJP?on old grandstand side if it can stay operational it doesn't look too bad pitch side but would benefit from the back being painted, presume the offices at the side are now disused. could they be stripped out and put down a small area of terracing for a few hundred more spaces?
