    I dont like it. I think its awful. That said, at least it is a statement and not just a generic bowl.

    As much as I love our development, Id be lying if I said I loved the looks. So far as generic bowls go its a good looking one, but thats not the same as "good looking". I love what it is more, the thought that has gone into its development and the approach to it. The Kop, the bar, the retractable pitch, the skywalk, the all-day attraction - all that is what appeals to me. From the top it literally looks like a toilet seat. I suppose at least that cant be said of the Vikings development.

    It reminds me of the Jawa sand crawler from Star wars.

    I knew it reminded me of something!

    At one point it also made me think of this:

    Its a stealth boat in the (I think) American navy. Looks like something a bond villain would have, so I wouldnt be surprised if Levy got one.

    That's either a very strange optical illusion of the worst Photoshop in history

    Just like the wall/lake photo

    Hah! Thanks for posting this. I remember seeing something like this at the south coast of Sweden as a kid, but didn't figure out at the time what the hell it was.

    I think we could have done something with the screens and not just jumbo trons lumped in the corner

    A wraparound screen above the stands like this would’ve been cool and might’ve helped persuade bands to have concerts at our gaff, rather than the other stadia in London...
