Up grading the lights should save money in the long run as they will be cheaper to run. Regular maintenance is required as fixing things that break can be more expensive.

Not sure giving a certain manager a huge budget and ignoring maintenance is such a good idea either.

TBF I would have them playing in a shite hole if the quality of player was much higher than the last two managers have procured.

No reason we can’t have a beautiful stadium and a decent, competitive team.

Not a good strategy to let your fixed assets seriously deteriorate.

I'd have the inside edges of the the stands covered in something to hide the construction materials. It could be huge, paid-for advertising. Or huge memorabilia for the club to proudly display.

 

The Wheatfield once had images of the fans. I thought it worked quite well.

I would love to see the insides of the stands painted maroon. I think it would look incredible and really freshen the place up.

Last time Boro were promoted to the Premier League they had to get the floodlights upgraded.  Something to do with 4K TV and the flicker rate, the TV contract specified that clubs had to have a particular specification of light.

 

I don't know what the situation is in Scotland, but could it be something similar?

Very good decision to switch to LED lighting now. The current floodlights are discharge lamps and in time are being made obsolete, they are also very expensive to replace. LED technology is moving incredibly fast and in addition to the power saving will have a long lifespan and cut down on maintenance costs.

Thanks for that.  I understood the basic science (A-Level in Physics, nearly 40 years ago), but this gives more detail.

 

I was speculating whether the Scottish Premiership might now have such a requirement, or whether it's just a coincidence that Hearts have been promoted and are upgrading their floodlights. Does anyone know?

Mibbe the LED bulbs will come with wee remote controls that can change the colour.

Filling in the corners would be great but would cost a lot of money. 

 

Im not clever enough to post a picture of the juventus stadium, but it looks to me that they have similar trusses and have supported them from behind the stand and also from the front with a couple of reinforced steel supports. 

 

Personally I would love for this to happen and place safestanding in the corners creating the old shed atmosphere again. 

 

Hopefully I win the euromillions and can make this happen. 🇱🇻♥️🇱🇻

And consequently better for the environment - appreciate that will get abuse - but you likely all just voted for a party that had such matters at the core of their manifesto...so you  all relevant people will back anything that helps the planet...

I'm being a bit pedantic here, but it makes less difference to the environment the more we move away from fossil fuels and towards renewables to generate electricity.  Using less electricity will of course save money, so I'm still all for it.

Genuinely surprised that solar panels on the appropriate facing stand roofs are not more commonplace at the clubs. The  angles of some stand roofs would generate a lot of energy IMO.

My local club Middlesbrough tried to build a wind turbine back in 2013, in an attempt to become the first club to power their ground through wind.

 

The turbine was never built, and the wrangle ended up in the High Court.

Having been to Turin  the Juventus stadium is nothing like Tynecastle.

You only get a remote if you’re in VIP seating. 
Boring lighting fact. You can’t make maroon with LED.

Great stadium.  Great team.  Great womens team.  Maroon trees.  Electronic scoreboard.

 

The power of positive thinking.  All of the above is more than possible.

In the old manual scoreboard if Hibs were drawing 0 - 0 at home at half-time, the guy in the box would put up the 0 and then display brief and tantalising glimpses of the numerals 5 or 6 before finally adding the second 0.

I did the half-time scoreboard for a while many moons ago.

A mate who was also doing it , once put up a score , for a laugh, that the lochenders were getting beat 5 or 6 - 0.

The crowd was roaring ! When the guy who was in charge saw what he had done, he went mental !

When it was removed , some of the crowd were non too pleased, to say the least !

Surely an angled extension to the roof to prevent the first 8 rows being pelted with raindrops would be welcome.

Final pun? Thankfully this work being done saved us from

allowing the SFA to hold the Scottish Cup final, which would’ve meant thousands of vermin drinking in the pubs in Gorgie and lowering the tone in general.  

Not to mention additional vaccination shots for everyone in the general area

Remember all the old posters too of Hearts Heroes there. Think there was still one kicking about in the Wheatfield a couple of seasons ago, but all gone now.

No chance. Not anytime soon. Since the new main stand opened, we've only got close to selling out for Category A games, and even that was probably due to giving the opposition the full Roseburn. 

 

The day we need more seats, is the day we give those clubs the bare minimum and still have to shut out Hearts fans queuing for tickets. Aside from those Category A games, you can queue up at the Ticket Office an hour before kick off and get tickets no problem.
