Maldron HQ is gonna be a ritual from now on =] Atmosphere there was incredible, great buzz. The match was surreal, felt amazing to be there. Managed to get a photo into the Times this morning with my mate Alex so I was delighted too, also I was apparently well visable after Baker's goal . Media Whore haha
You can only imagine what the hotel management made of it all - bar and lobby jammed with hundreds of chanting beer monsters.
I'd say the no-doubt astronomical takings eased the pain though.
What's the half time facilities like inside the stadium lads?
Also what did that off side goal look like from inside? anyone have a good angle, i thought he was very tight with the left centre back, but the camera angles were shoite!
I hate the way ya can't judge them things on RTE's cameras =/
Half time facilities are grand, plenty of toilets, food is okay (could do with a few sweets, bars etc) but i'm sure it'll be even better by summer
If RTE froze the picture it would have helped. I thought he looked onside.
Are they doing anything with two empty spaces behind each goal or are they just leaving it like that?
temp stand going on other side soon.
I dont see the SDCC needing to put in anymore stands not until rovers dominate the champions league anyway
It's not a temporary stand. It will be a permanent structure. The foundation is ready and the construction will start on Monday week. It's an 18 week build so should be ready by the end of July.
How many will it hold?
Opposite the existing stand and backing onto the school I assume?
the plans in SDCC offices has a temp stand near idential to whats at pats perm foundation but the seating is temp.
could have changed been a while since i was there.
Yes, opposite the existing stand. Capacity of just over 3000.
They have. Its a permanent structure.
god bless the SDCC so and little timmy
Tier the bastard I say. Lets get a 30,000 all seater bowl going. Start digging down like barce did.
"If you build it, they will come"
