    Knowing our luck it’s a burst water main that will delay the opening by another couple of months until it’s replaced!

    Suggests that maybe there is something in the idea that we needed to try and do it in one season, because the FA / PL would never have let us spend half a season in the new stadium if that was always the plan? This way, we get in sooner rather than spending 2 years away...

    All speculation of course, but maybe Levy was perfectly happy for rumours of sabotage to abound...

    Once the pitch goes in, and it looks like that might start tomorrow, then I would take that as an indication we are weeks away.

    Sprinklers are on at the moment at the southern end of the pitch according to the live webcam.

    I’m not sure about that magnolia for the ceiling.

    Would suggest there was no rush to lay the pitch until the cabling error was almost fixed I’d have thought?

    As long as no other work is gonna happen on the pitch area, there is no harm in laying the pitch, so it can settle and bed down properly.

    Dan was on the fighting rooster, the latest, and basically confirmed he was just speculating.

    The hybrid stabilised turf, reinforced by polypropylene strands, is similar to the pitch we had at White Hart Lane.

    The turf is being bought to the UK in 23 refrigerated lorries over the course of the next three days. Each strip of turf is cut at 2.4m wide x 12m long, with each roll weighing approximately 1.5 tonnes.


    Anyone know much about 'hybrid' turf? Assume you can hardly tell it's part plastic?

    It's nearly all grass. There are just some plastic stands intermingled to give it strength and stability. I'm not sure but I'd imagine this is mostly in earthy part of the turf with the roots and just above the surface so that actual top surface is all grass.

    Edit. I can't remember the system being used at NWHL, but the following describes the GrassMaster system.

    From when we installed it originally at WHL, its effectively reinforced with plastic blades of grass.

    Its natural turf, but woven into it is plastic grass that adds a great deal to how hard wearing it is.

    I think to the naked eye, as well as to play on, you would never know.

    Remember that patch of turf that was always bare down in the corner? Couldnt be helped, by Christmas is was knackared. Never happened again once we installed this stuff.

    Imagine if you could watch the game, have a few beers and shout and sing as a steward - it'd be the perfect job. :p

    Unfortunately candidates are required to be of very mature nature.... I stopped reading after that.
