No fans are allowed in the ground at the moment. Wouldn't this be the best time to start building work? Or was the designs just to excite fans with false promises? Its been a long time for us to wait...

good call, just knock the f*cker down sooner rather than later, or cover it in red and blue stripes, can't stand looking at a large lid of corrugated iron where other clubs have cantilever stands. Or keep a few aircraft in there or some dairy cows, that's what the main stand's fit for, a hangar or a cattle shed.

I'd imagine there are numerous Animal Rights authorities who would vigorously refute this.

 


Here's to you the famous red and blue.....

Little Fulham are doing just that in the middle of London and yet we are still stalled.

Can we actually get on with it while there are no crowds.

Parish has been telling us the same story for months now.
I appreciate the difficult logistics and red tape of such a project but that doesn't seemed to have stopped a host of other clubs. We might have specific hurdles to overcome but every day we delay will cost us money when fans return.

The football looks zhit, don't want it to smell like zhit as well.

 


So I manage a Workshop which provides a safe learning environment for blokes struggling with PTSD and other mental health issues. Being a Palace fan isn't listed yet.

Fulham have been trying to redevelop Craven Cottage since the late 90's, and specifically the Riverside Stand since 2007.

The local authorities have had a long term desire to open up a continuous footpath along the Thames for the public and their design has had to incorporate plans that compliment that to push it through planning.

They had to buy part of the Thames from the port of London, and in recent memory have had to relocated at Loftus Road.

Building or upgrading a stadium in London seems to be a nightmare with significant political support.

Also, little Fulham have had far wealthier owners than us over the last 20 years who have continuously mismanaged them.

It's been covered elsewhere, but the new stand can't start until the club finds the land nearby to provide as much or more new housing as that being lost when the houses in Wooderson Close are demolished.

If anyone has a suitably large plot of undeveloped land in the urban area, I'm sure the club would be keen to hear from you.

Just knock the b****r down - it is a horrible eyesore.
Then re-build when the rights/permissions are received.

It is the absolute perfect time, but probably never going to happen within another ten years, Fulham like I mentioned before will be well ahead of us as a club, sad and incredibly frustrating.

We want to wait for our millennium celebrations. And we're not adopting the 1861 date either.

 


I used to put the manager's name in front of Red and Blue but got fed up with changing it. If someone cool becomes our manager then maybe..

Red and Blue Army!

knock down the main stand, erect a 1000ft pointed glass tower in its place and change our name to Crystal Phallus.
