    Filling in the corners - coming soon.

    Folks,

    Have info that the corners of ER will be filled in and will be in place for the start of next season!

    Reliably informed demolition of the current empty space between all 4 stands will start in a number of weeks!!!

    I heard on the bus by a non-reliable source that it is going to be 3 tiers and be very like Milans Ground.

    That it? I heard it would be 5 tiers. I also heard it would have a capacity of over 100k. Source is that I know Liam Miller's mate's son's pal's da's sister's pet dog and he says......


    In all honesty though, i doubt it. I thought the East was coming but filling in the corners as well would be taking it a step too far at the moment IMO.

    I thought the option to fill in corners is only there if Scotland get a Euor championships?

    Or maybe we could fill in the 2 corners between East/North and West/North and join them to the FF?

    We should build a massive circular stand that slowly rotates to the tune of over 14 90's pop classics till you end up where you started but in the past.

    Perfect. Maybe the whole ground could roll around Leith like some sort of green gyroscopic thunderdome.

    Will I get to keep my current space in the empty space between the FF and the East?

    Or should I take my screwdriver along and unscrew it myself?

    And why do some folk here not get the joke?

    I heard this is going to happen. Dont want to say too much in case I get one of the contractors in trouble but I also hear the pitch is to rotate in the opposite direction. Should be a goer as soon as Rod perfects his zero gravity field generator. He wants Hibs to play their home games in zero-gravity to give us that competitive home advantage.

    Ahhhh,.... zero-gravity. Does that mean that such players as Tony Higgins, Amadou Konte etc... those that could jump downwards... were ahead of their time?

    This sounds like it's a pre-tender situation.

    I can confirm this is definitely happening.

    Although I'm informed by my mole on the inside that we will be digging a wee hole in the corner so the planning permission doesn't run out.

    We'll need to sell the whole squad just to fund it and then we won't have enough fans to fill it because we'll have sold all our best players. On the plus side we can rent it out for the odd cup tie or concert to recoup some doe.

    I've also got it on good authority that there will be no singing or standing sections.

    Indeed, a visionary that Mr.Petrie (tugs forelock).

    That is why we got Montrose in the cup, RP wanted another look at Andy McNeil so arranged it to be so. You heard it here first

    Now, tongue firmly out of cheek and in all seriousness...if the price of steel and construction/material/labour costs were significantly low then it would make sense to extend the East Stand into the corners and connect with the North and Sounth stands. Instant long term saving and bums on seats!

    Assuming the club factored those extensions into the planning application in anticipation of the worst recession in generations the it might be a good idea. Unlikely, but you never know with the tache.

    If we fill in the corners it might stop fans leaving the East stand early .
