I live about a mile from the stadium. It started raining heavily yesterday evening and was still pouring some hours later (I was up late). Not raining this morning, but` very overcast and` lfe`e`ls ``like it could start again anytimeHeavy rain rain forecast all day tomorrow so it’ll be interesting to see how it holds up tomorrow night
I think that our pitch, although looking patchy, is quite stable and the ball runs true most of the time because it is so recent structurally. I doubt Leeds have spent much on theirs or anything else at the stadium after the cost of meeting Premier League requirements.Considering the condition of our pitch the results on it have been very good.
That’s amazing - 35 years later! No wonder it looks a mess. Can’t believe that they have been in the PL twice and they haven’t spent any real money on it.I've mentioned this before, probably on this thread, that Five Live mentioned that the Elland Road pitch hasn't been re-laid since it was done for Euro 96.
Did clubs always use to relay pitches? I know they used to reseed them in the close season but a complete relay? I thought they just cut the grass and gave them a good forking and fertiliser when necessary. BTW I caught a youtube of old Brentford Heros after the Toyah one. The home pitch at GP for the Man City cup game in the late 80's doesn't look so good!I've mentioned this before, probably on this thread, that Five Live mentioned that the Elland Road pitch hasn't been re-laid since it was done for Euro 96.

Like Barnsley’s pitch, it must be a Yorkshire thing!
It looked like a threadbare old astroturf pitchHaving watched the Leeds V Burnley Game on Sky there pitch looked God Awful with huge great Divots all over the place. you could also see in some places where players had run very similar to a Bowlers run ups after a day of cricket so I don't think its just a problem we have.
As mentioned here:The European Champions of Yorkshire have apparently bought Spurs 'reserve' pitch for £300k which was being grown at their training base for future use at their new stadium.
Not sure if this is a loan or permanent transfer btw.......
