    Armrests? How the hell would you fit them in between this board of directors?



    It's interesting that when the board sat in the Gorgie stand they had an empty row in front of them and security to protect them from the angry masses. I wonder what the plan is for the new stand seeing as there is a walkway directly in front of their new 'Directors Box'.
    Does look a wee bit "ticht" for those high heid yins altogether there is it not?

    'the amount of work that's been done in less than six months is phenomenal'


    Which makes you wonder what else they've been doing for the WHOLE YEAR they've been there ??


    Another stunning and hilarious piece of 'Jamboganda' straight from the school of 'All-is' !!
    The amount of work done in 6 months is phenomenal. to have 150 men working full time on that size of project and still not at completion is truly phenomenal.thankfully for budgie she'll have inserted penalty clauses with the principal designer/contractor.

    I note the Cooncil is, as usual, bending over backwards to accommodate Hearts. I wonder if someone wanted to open a new shop or factory whether Cooncil workers would make themselves available on Saturday or Sunday to help them do so. Aye, right!

    So, has there been an official postponement yet?
    Any announcement?

    Sensible PR by the council.

    They are telling Hearts that the council won't be "to blame" if the match is postponed.

    In reality, the SPFL won't allow this to run into Sunday morning.

    From Allisbarry, Budgies mouthpiece.

    Other areas of the structure must also be completed but the Council are keen to do everything to help Hearts.

    The Glasgow club enjoy a cordial relationship with their Gorgie counterparts and the Evening News believes they would not be unduly difficult to deal with over a possible postponement.

    It will increase Tynecastleís capacity to more than 20,000 people.

    Dearie me !!!

    Any Council should bend over baxkwards to help local businesses.

    Now Barry.

    Even if Hearts are allowed to play at Tynecastle this weekend, it's not going to be 'finished' is it? Not even Budge is claiming that.

    Funny how The Herald today is saying Thistle are concerned about the possibility of a last minute postponement and want a decision quickly. Reasonably points out that a postponement would mean Thistle possibly having to play 9 times in December, and a last minute postponement would disrupt training schedules and the ability to get practice by arranging a bounce match.

    Not to mention supporters clubs need to book buses, etc...

    Why is nobody in the media questioning any of this? The reason this is all so much of a late last minute panic is down to incompetent management of the whole project and trying to do it on the cheap without employing a proper project manager or proper main contractor.

    It's like one of those grand designs where some pompous battleaxe decides that because she has run a succcessfull business selling snow to the eskimos that she can run a complicated construction project without bothering to pay for an architect, a QS and a project manager and we all sit around laughing as Kevin McCloud* climbs through the shell of the building, half buried in snow and long abandoned since the owner fell out with the contractor, ran out of money and forgot to order the windows...

    * In this story, Hibs.net is Kevin McCloud, Ann Budge is, ummm, Ann Budge and the windows are actually seats

    That Evening News article. Wow. Barry ****ing Anderson, just look at him. Says it all.

  20. #7579
    I would expect a statement today. Usually they are published around 11am or 5pm.

    With all the talk in the media and fans forums surely the yams will confirm today if the game is on or off.

    For travelling fans / local fans and everyone working on the day you would think they will announce the outcome.

    If they donít - then they are an even bigger shambles of a club than one can imagine.

    If they postpone the game last minute then they should face severe consequences for not being able to find a venue to host a game as planned atthe start of the season. If they blame it on health and safety and get away with it - itís another sign of Scottish Football being run by muppets.

    It seems they will host on Sunday but I can imagine many teething problems (turnstiles for example as we found with new system when implemented). They are desperate to get people inside to try make some money back (plus they donít have a plan B).

    Overall they remain such an amateur club and even spending £14 million canít fund class. Canít wait till they realise they wonít get over 20,000 and still have a funding gap to sort in the near future which will affect the already dire playing squad.

    Seeing as it's basically a copy of their Wheatfield stand with a very basic office block tacked on the back of it, they probably thought it would be easy.

    They have council inspectors on standby for Saturday according to the news. Ridiculous on fabscand Thistle. They should have final inspection today. To give everybody sufficient notice.

    They should be made to play the game using the 3 stands only, honouring the tickets for these stands, including the away fans, and refund ticket holders for the new stand.

    It would cost them money but, tough, it's a situation of their own making.

    I've said before on this thread that for a living I buy and sell properties. I have a property on sale just now in Edinburgh that has had 2 offers fall through on. The reason is purely and simply City of Edinburgh Council.

    every lawyer, surveyor, architect and property professional knows the council planning and building standards are in meltdown. Short staffed and far too much work.

    i know a guy who's building warrant has been shipped out to Argyll & Bute council. So if they need to have a meeting with their Building Standards Officer they need to go through there.

    i have been waiting 14 months for a building warrant. Was told to start work before it was in place. Now I have been waiting 6 months for warrant sign off and now I'm told 2-3 months for a site visit.

    How on earth the council have the resources to be on site several days this week and advise hearts is disgusting.

    I actually think that makes it look worse, if possible! As others have said, the stand will be functional and was much needed, the main reason we're all getting so much amusement out of it is down to their incessant need to try make it seem more than it is with the statements every two minutes and all the bluster that came with its announcement.

    Actually, that's not such a bad idea. Huge embarrassment for them and some unexpected rental income for us. The game would go ahead and everyone would be happy. Their fans would also have the opportunity to closely compare our high quality football stadium before moving back to their place and they'd actually be able to accommodate a crowd of over 20,000 for the last time until they rent Murrayfield again. Win-Win if you ask me.

    The fish eye perspective makes the 'office block' look like it's part of the stadium and you could imagine that it was some kind of steel and glass bowl-shaped, purpose built affair rather than just a bunch of temporary stands with an ugly, boxy office block stuck on one side.

    I have a good friend in the same game. Let's just say his experiences are similar to yours. He says they are actually costing him and his businesses money. Being cynical I asked for examples, sadly it's true.

    How can they do it for Hearts? I guess the answer lies somewhere in the mindset that says it's okay to let them accrue tens of thousands of business tax debts and do nothing to diligently pursue it.

    You know why they need all that corporate entertainment space in the school view lounge.
