For years and years I never knew what that meant when it was in Malky's cartoons.

I vaguely remember him randomly appearing in Malky's work, now you mention it ...

We sure it's not Momo Sylla down there?

 

If we build a training facility we can use our current plastic pitch as a all weather training pitch, along with a grass one. 

Perhaps with the Almighty one gone we could try and get in with Halo?

It's a good thing having the hospitality box, hopefully this is for wider use by all......

Also think it's high time the club and sponsors thought about providing a lift (perhaps built on to the FB at the Moffat end) to give disabled fans the chance to see the games from higher up (and dryer) vantage point. Has the KFCSA tabled this with the club already? I was in the disabled area at Parkhead with my dad at the Commonwealth Games Opening Ceremony rehearsal and their area (top of the lower tier) is quite superb, easy access to catering, toilets and a lift, much credit to Celtic for investing in this.....

It won't be an 18 thousand stadium no more

It's been less than 18,000 since we "lost" those seats.

I was just assuming this was bought and paid for by QTS as well...but I've been categorically assured its not. Not that I was bothered either way, if Alan McLeish wanted to pay for it every week then who are we to refuse the sponsorship money?

This is being built by our club under our own steam and its also one of the things they've been talking to the Trust about...ideas of how to decorate and market it...apparently there is room for around 180 and if it goes down well there could be an option to extend. Just shows you, assume nothing, question everything. Maybe we should be approaching the likes of Alan M and seeing if he'd like it to be called the QTS Hospitality Suite (for a healthy fee)...or would it be better calling it after a club legend?

Talking to Trust chairman Jim T today and it looks like we will be getting the tea bars etc. tarted up before the start of the season and the club will be looking for us to coral some help for that. Jim reckons it would be a good touch to 'theme' them the way some other club's do, again honouring some past heroes. Sound like a plan?

Monty's T-bar. Given his history in the 'catering' business.

Big eff off posters of Big D, Gary Holt, Eddie Morrison. A double sized, widescreen one for Willie Watters. And, of course, our lord & saviour Dylan Kerr.

Themed food. The Gary T*ll*n hot dog. It's sh*te too etc etc.

I look forward to buying my pie from the Gary McSwegan Pie Stand next season.

How about the Freddie Dindeloos as well?

Pasca's pizza slice .........

 

re the "box" ....just hope the club sees a good degree of revenue and overall profit from the cost of building this ......will be interesting to see how the catering contract for it is done and how it differs from the arrangement with the hotel for the park suite.

Hows the box coming along?

It UPVC like the cheesy one at the main stand at Tynecastle thats just been demolished ?

Or is it an Eco Box made of a driftwood and reclaimed railway sleepers?

So is this hospitality box going to replace the current comfy seats area? or is it in addition. If it seats 180 then technically we won't be reducing the capacity too much.

Personally i'd be trying to make the match day experience better for the average fan first, the tea bars thing is a nice touch.

Does anyone know how the construction of the new box is coming along ?

Was in last Tuesday. Basically still looked like the photo. Don't know if the whole shebang is being done in the oner, but the 1st 3 blocks of that back section will be boxes. The press might need to re-employ Gillon Carruthers to see round the edge of the boxes nearest the press area.

How was this looking on Saturday, any further development other than chairs being removed?

Nothing more than the photo above. There have also been a significant number of seats removed from the Killie side of the directors box

Kiltie said at the KFCSA AGM that there were issues with the structural engineers but that they would be overcome.

Can only batter on with something if someone is prepared, or able, to do the work.

was unaware that there was an issue. Suppose with old stand like the West there could be a number of issues, especially with it being wooden

I think the directors box seats are being updated to the same style as the dugouts. Should be comfy, only need some directors to fill them now!

We are looking at putting a hospitality box in. It's out for tender just now. 

Also talk of a new training pitch next to the hotel and a new shop, but that one seems more like talk than anything solid. 

2 out of 3 aint bad, just the training pitch remaining

Taking longer than Hearts new stand... and that’s saying something

I'm sure I read somewhere that there was structural issues that needed to be sorted. Was supposed to be opened in October.
