There's a lot being said after the Grenfell fire, but after the fire at Bradford City we still have an old stand which contains much wood. Smoking is prohibited within the ground, but still there is a potential for a fire.
Are there any grounds down south with old wooden stands?

I read recently that Forest Green are about to build a new
ground totally out of wood. They are also probably the worlds
only vegan team.

i would hate to move, I love the turf , younger fans with less history on there, would just adapt, soon the new place would become quite a natural setting for them. Must be sad for a great many fans elsewhere when the end comes, west ham, man city, arsenal, etc. Brunshaw road is perfect , we can handle the crowds, no need to move unless some cynical overseas betting corporation takes the reigns and demands we build a poxy characterless stadium and rebrand totally. I will probably stop going on then. I will happily take some changes, but i have my limits. What hull and cardiff were facing in recent times made me sick .hope the day never dawns for us.

....might be acceptable to have a pie shaped venue though, so it appeared like a huge meat pie from a distance.

I played at Calder Vale a few times. Glad we moved from there. Talk about mud. It was a bog.

Are you referring to the Belvedere and Caldervale Rugby Club off Colne road?

The old Burnley Rugby Union club ground was somewhere near the new Burnley college,just down from Burnley central rail station close to the viaduct.

Only Anfield Stamford Bridge and St James' Park - did we really once play at Calder Vale? although that's when they were a rugby club and they moved to the Turf in 1882

Burnley football club played a few matches at the old Burnley Football rugby club-which was near where the new Burnley college is now-when first formed.moving to Turf Moor in 1883.

Probably best ask Alf, i think he cut the ribbon.

What about the renaming of grounds?
Any thoughts of a new name for the Turf?

it's only when it's a government project things go Pete Tong and the original estimate is only a fraction of final costs.

It went seriously Pete Tong for Multiplex, constructors of the new Wembley. They lost around £200 million on the deal, which led to them losing all interest in bidding for any of the London Olympics building projects.

Looks like we, sorry they, are moving.

FFS, sure the lad on the tannoy said the attendance yesterday was 6,004 with 1,500 away fans, and I saw many Hibs fans in town later, obviously they had come by train, the new ground will be further away from the station, not a good move imo.

FFS, more details of the proposed plans for a new ground up here, including a crematorium, holy smoke, I wonder if this is a green method of under soil heating.
