    Well it certainly wasn't spent on paint or paying the electricity bill to turn the TVs on.

    Have you noticed the west stand roof? Complete new one I think.

    It's the same roof, they've just removed the two end walls and replaced them with bright red cladding

    Failed to develop the stadium for years. Dropping to bits compared to Huddersfield.

    I didn't think it could get any worse than last season but I was proven wrong today. You literally cannot hear a word that is being said.

    There is no doubt stuff needs replacing, refurbishing or upgrading but I would far rather we spent what money we have on the squad. You can't have it every which way.

    Out of interest, what do you want in terms of matchday experience? I'm intrigued, as my matchday experience is fine.

    Er, yeah, but we aren't spending it on the squad.
    No idea, but the TV gantry looks absolutely awful.

    Whoever erected (hehe) that 'new' gantry should be charged with impersonating a builder. It is ghastly

    To answer the O/P, this is what I was told last week when I was at the club

    New executive mezzanine floor in East Stand, new bookies area in East, new signage around the club, (with more to come - including a new BFC crest for Ponty end), all pitches re-seeded, gantry made safer, west stand gables done. Paintwork done.

    That's all I can remember.

    Why do I suspect that the vast vast majority of that money has been spent on the executive area.
