    As anyone got an update on the West Stand work being done? I was at Oakwell about a month ago and the 2 end panels had been removed. Heard nothing since.

    I had a look today and they are still putting in new Galvanized framework for the cladding. I don't know why it is taking so long. Hopefully the whole West Stand will then be painted to match the rest of the ground. Grove St,the exterior wall and the Queens road car park,are all looking "tired".

    I have flagged both these issues up with maintenance. The boards and the admiral signs.

    I bet you a quid that the east stand will look just the same inside as it has for the last umpteen years.
    BUT... what were they trying to build in the centre of the concourse at the end of last season? Several rows of breeze blocks in a sort of "wall" shape. I felt slightly excited studying it.

    I think a little bit of money would go a long way to sprucing up the concourses. Big lick of paint in the East Stand would be welcome. More artworks of players all over the walls would be good (real legends though,not Cywka and Noble-Lazarus...)

    And a proper redecorating of the West Stand would be great

    All stands could do with this to be fair. Not done a thing to the ground since 1999.

    The amount of money we've got from transfers etc over the last year or so, dropping £50k on a big paint job is doable

    (Completely made up that figure)
