You mean like the "Cooperage Lane Covered Enclosure Fund" the board ran at Brockville :lol: :lol:

I'd be up for this idea and would contribute. Would do exactly what it says on the tin and gives the Club and fans a common cause.
SAFE TERRACING FOR TFS EAST STAND.

Here here. You know what would happen with that mind you. We would win the league and be denied entry as we had terracing.
I wonder what has happened to all of the BairnsTrust shares...

Would a terraced stand be enough to entice fans back? Do we have any money to build anything?

The other farce which I forgot about which is as a result of the split format is that normally one team ends up with one less home game a season thus less revenue.

I wonder if Celtic have ever had this happen to them. I somehow doubt it and wouldn't be surprised if they have had benefited from an extra home fixture in seasons past.

If it was a bit cheaper to get in, say £10 - £15 (and kids still free) it might entice me to 2 or 3 more home games a season.

...having said that I'd prefer it, by my kids like to sit.

Will the additional Cup Final/Run money be used for this potentially, or better spent on players? I guess by the time any stand is built the Rangers and Hibs of the world could well be out of this league, pity as with them and Hearts this season it really could have been well used.

New 600k Car Park!

I'd love to know how they come up with a figure of £600k.

Seems totally outrageous.

Looks like its the Council, something to do with parking for the Helix site.According to the article in the FH.Monoblocked car parking space with spaces for buses.

Seeing as they're charging at the Helix, will P&D machines be installed too?

Visited a couple of weeks ago, and parking at tha Helix car park and at the Stadium was free. The only charge was for the parking at the Kelpies at a flat rate of £2.

Looking at that Curry Club news article picture with Will Vaulks in it, can we at least get navy tarpaulins all the same colour to cover the seats this season - looks terrible all these different coloured sheets on whats otherwise a cracking looking and new stadium...

That'll be right! This BOD won't spend a bean! Not even half a bean! No East Terrace, no players and absolutely no tarpaulin!!!

Absolutely quality trolling mate - imagine if someone actually did complain about the tarp. Brilliant!

I have a South Stand Parking Permit and am a Senior Citizen but they half wit yellow jackets would not let me park today instead insisted on me driving round to the far side of the North Stand and park there and walk back round to the South Stand. You can't even get round the back as it is so overgrown. Falkirk BOD sort this for the East Fife game or their will be hell to pay.

The club posted on website that it was 1st come 1st served with car parking today as the permits dont count for anything for friendly matches in pre-season. Have you considered that the spaces were all taken

I am not bloody stupid but when I walked round their were three empty spaces and I was there 10 minutes before kick off. Thats what was so bloody annoying!!!!!. Thats discounting the 10 empty disabled spaces that have been created since last season.
