Club United proposal 20:40 - Jun 8 with 574 viewswessex_exile

Some of you may have seen on the OMB that a group of us are pulling together a proposal for Club United, which I wanted to flag up here in readiness, as it's gaining some traction with the club.

The original excellent proposal was from Coluphil, who thought spelling out "1937" in the North Stand in honour of our formation would help give the stadium some personal identity. Lofty came up with the idea that we could do so by swapping seats with the S3 white block in the South Stand to keep costs down (i.e. less new seats needed). So I threw together some suggestions for S3, ran a poll, and the idea of creating a stylised version of the Col U eagle was the preferred option.

SmithyD then did some inspiring Photoshop work to show what it would look like in the ground, and it is this (below) that we have put forward to the club. The club have indicated they like the idea, and are currently looking into the financials (e.g. new seats, labour to do the swap etc.) so the Club United proposal can be properly costed.



So this is just a heads-up that it will hopefully be appearing on Club United in due course, and if you like the idea we'd all appreciate it so much if you'd pledge your funds to support it.

Up the U's!

I like the Eagle very much.

Not so keen on the 1937.

Thanks for the feedback Durham. It’ll be a package proposal if it gets that far, so hopefully you can still support it.

This is something I would be happy to vote for.

I think someone mentioned on the OMB they would be prepared to help with the labour. It is something I would be interested in. Could this help keep the cost down, or with health and safety as it is, would the job of moving seats have to be done by professionals.

Another idea would be directly behind the goal the seats are red ,so perhaps the new forward line might know what to shoot at, so perhaps have a large target red, white and blue !

But seriously excellent idea for the eagle in the South Stand, but no proposal in Club United in my dirt box . Might even join the posse to change seats if volunteers required.

Poll: End of season placement.

But not the Millwall fans who were at Luton in 1985…although they did remove seats very quickly.

Indeed some have, and I'd be happy to drive over myself to help out. However, I suspect in this modern world of 'elf and safety, that an army of willing supporters with spanners* would probably be an absolute no-no for fear someone doesn't tighten their nuts enough (ooh err missus), a seat collapses and a supporter gets injured - never mind the current social-distancing implications.



* for clarity, I don't mean U's Faithful bringing along their Ipswich Town supporting friends.

Best solution would be if there is a Us fan connected with a company that could do what is required...and do it at mate's rates.

Love the 1937, but the eagle looks tacky. Nothing against the design, it just won't work under the limitations of the seating.

Sadly I can't see the north stand getting a new configuration. RC likes to stick his adverts there, and if it does then he'll just cover it with his adverts.

I like the idea of the eagle but have same concerns in that design will not look good due to stand size.

The eagle would have more chance in the East stand but I doubt RC would agree to that

Just for info, the proposal has now been submitted for review. I'm expecting the club to feedback on actual labour and material costs, but hopefully it will go live in due course. If I get more news, I'll keep you posted.

Cheeky Monkey - I only just qualify for Concessions!

Do we have anyone on the site who was at the first game in 1937, realistically would have to be about 90 years of age.

You make an interesting point Durham. A bit like the few surviving veterans of the two World Wars, I wonder if there is anyone still alive who was at our first match? Mathematically it’s obviously possible, however unlikely. I wonder if there’s a way to find out?

Whilst I suspect it is highly unlikely anybody is still supporting the U's who attended the first game in 1937 it would be great to find out.
Am sure the Gazette would do a piece wessex.
