    If any of our rivals built a new stadium which was illuminated like a 1980s nightclub, we would be taking the tinkle.

    Well it felt like it was the 70s was it the 80s? I just remember going out to nightclubs and thinking people were tacos. Was so happy to go back to listening to bands in pubs but still do the odd nightclub.

    What is funny is that hearing the young teenagers at work talking, the other day one was moaning that the music they played at a wedding she attended was all that really old disco crap from like 40 years ago. She had a point really.

    Late 7Os (78) and from memory gave disco a brief re-invigoration (mainly with people who were old enough to know better from memory) just as the rest of us were New Waving (see what I did there? o_O :oops:) it good bye.

    Encouraging. He's apparently relaying a message from a friend who is involved with the assessing and readiness of the stadium safety systems.

    Sounds a bit odd, so we'll get clearance then play games with specialist fire marshals in place. I don't know much about these things but sounds unlikely to me.

    Specialist Marshals mentioned as temporary measure during Test Events - somewhat unsurprising, given that things have got to be checked/verified/assured before licensing for proper games/events.

    A few blokes with buckets of sand, it'll be fine. Open her up Danny.

    This is Danny’s way of getting around having anything red in the stadium. So there won’t be any of these on site...

    Ottawa, actually.
    What worries me about this whole thing is precisely that - the atrocious build management.

    What other bits of the stadium might be sub-par, but which we wouldn't know about? I suppose the f*cked-up wiring systems were easily noticed once the testing started, but now I'm vaguely questioning everything from the 'trees' supporting the single-tier end (was the stress testing done all right?) to the cladding (was it put in place properly? Will it fall off?).

    I don't know, I'm certainly no builder. And as I've said before, I couldn't care less when it opens, as long as it's completely safe when it does. But I hope to GHod that there's nothing else that was f*cked up during the build - because that might come back to bite us months, years or decades down the line.

    Anyone better versed in construction with a more optimistic view? I'd be grateful for one. :)

    Those thing you mentioned would be done before the build even started. It won't even get to the planning docs without documentation on the structure. Nothing to worry about.

    I am (or was once upon a time) and have zero doubts. The wiring blueprints for a build this size is the stuff of nightmares and if you saw them I think you'd understand how things could go wrong in this area by using a sub-contractor just not quite up to scratch. Considering the ambitious timeline for this project something like this was always a risk. Anything structural will have been modelled/tested up the wazoo. A few months delay is annoying (and expensive) but it's not the end of the world.
    I like to marvel at the majesty of the place and know that we are the envy of every club in England.
