Brentfords New Stadium 11:29 - Feb 3 with 1170 views enfieldargh

Was chatting to a fellow fan yesterday and he was telling me that Brentford have a few issues with their new build.

The Stadium original capacity has had to be reduced to 17k as the original 20K+ plan the site was not big enough to fit.

He was also saying that the current site allows for a pitch that is smaller than regulations and that the capacity may be reduced to c.12k.

The original architect apparently made a total balls up even after all approved?

Anyone know any more on this? .........went on qpr forum and have found this statement ....got to be a load of sh*t surely

About as much credibility as their club.

What time were these taken?
Don’t like the look of the big shadow in the corner.

I wonder how near the finished article the south stand roof is? Looks a bit weird.

It looks like an unfinished roof to me ... I think we can probably reserve judgment until its finished, its not like many of us are ever going to see it from this angle unless we are frequent flyers. I believe its going to have a load of solar panels on the west end of it and the rest I assume will be plastered in advertising for the benefit of the frequent flyers

You've answered your own question.

Amazing!

It’s very odd that two posters have now come on here, on the same day, questioning the pitch size and if it fits.

Next you’ll be getting posters questioning why isn’t the north stand built yet? The other three are up. Does it fit? Incredible.

Can't we just bolt some seats to the Sega offices and call that the North Stand? Gives plenty of room to move the pitch north across the rail tracks (ref can just call a drinks break when trains are scheduled to run through). You don't want to think outside the box Brentford :nono:

It’s. Brilliant to finally see the actual shape of the main structure.

Just for GP2000000000...........it’s quite/very unique :thumbs:

Looking at the North East corner it seems like the temporary access road is no more, are they now bringing in new material via the pitch access tunnel. They must be cracking on with getting the bridge up and running at the pointy bit on the East end?

I actually cant wait to see the corners of East and West join up with the North stand. Going to have a very unique feeling.

I've posted on many occasions that the layout means each stand has an almost unique approach to each stand's turnstiles, with no two stands having the same appearance and no two stands having the same surroundings (although there's no escaping railway lines). This means that each can develop its own character with the fans inside.

Blimey , if we end up with that capacity let's hope we don't draw Barnet in the cup again. We will have to hire Wembley to accommodate all of them. In all seriousness though, surely it would have been double/triple checked before starting such a bit project

Actually, "almost unique" is valid, meaning that it is rare or distinctive while not being singular. "Almost pregnant", on the other hand...

I can't imagine thats the case, but if it is the architect better have some very good PI insurance.

Sperm narrowly missing target? Just wide? On target but takes a deflection? Direct hit but ruled off-side?
