The stadium was well past its sell by date. If there was any serious trouble structural failures could easily resulted in a loss of life. Did it have an active safety certification? Double decker and other stands clearly a fire risk.

Similar to the Heysel disaster. Steel girders were s rusty the roof panel looked time expired and there were many pinch points and places where crushing was a risk.

The roof was paid for by the Supporters Club, and the floodlights were first used in a friendly against Hibernian 10th October 1960.

The double decker was dsimantled in the 80s under DOug Sharpes stewardship....I think we all know the old lady was past her best and the move to a new stadium was needed..... dont try and credit HJ with this one though....

Anyway I thought HJ put a roof on, not took it off.

Thank you friends.
I seem to recall going to that Hibs game but it rather sepia coloured memories I have now.

Good lads

The club negotiated the move to the liberty late the Swansea.com stadium. This required a good "networking" skills to deal with the developers and council.

The former chairman was most responsible of all the owners for the glorious period 2007-2015 of almost continued success and great attractive football. The owners, unable to fund expanding the club, sold to people who brought no debt, were decent business men with experience of stadium development. While not 'sugar daddies' their money has kept Swansea a successful going concern despite relegation partly using home grown player sales from the academy set up by the sellers. .

The ex chairman did great things for the club and the city.

The chap is writing a book about Liverpool's promotion season 61/62.

He's very complimentary of us and relates our fans in droves at the back of the Kop in 64.

Many older LFC fan have a soft spot for us mainly because of Tosh.

I do recall the 2-2 draw there, Twice we got in to the kop and twice as we did we scored and were let’s say made,to feel unwelcome, However, in those days we probably deserved it,

The top of the double decker was removed following the Bradford disaster in 1985. The double decker was totally a wooden structure with the only exits being inside the stand.

It was back in those days fans were walked around the pitch if they found themselves in the wiring end so to speak, happened to us twice. Happy days. Unfortunately one of our lot didn’t come home.
