Re: Pitch

The control room isnt an issue at all. It is definatley the pitch.FACT.

From what i understand the control room that was above the changing room is being scrapped and a new purpose built structure will be built above the water tank.For the time being the old control box is located at the back of the coppice end.

Am I missing something here? If the old control box is behind the Coppice End at ground level, then surely, it's not operational, as by its very nature, a control box should have a clear view of all parts of the ground? So we couldn't have played the Burnley game, anyway. The more important question is how the "new, purpose-built structure" is going to be built in just over two weeks?

Would it not have to have been built in the next few days if the pitch had been fit ?

Have they got planning permission for a new structure ?

Re: Pitch

All these questions could be posed at the season ticket collecting event next week - I think every single person who goes should, one by one, make a point of asking O'Neil (if indeed he's there) - maybe we could have a set list of questions for everyone to ask and them compare his answers, I'm willing to bet none of them would be the same

Re: Pitch

Right as I have it the old contol box (which is at this moment in time sat at the back of the coppice end) will be located on top of a new portacabin in the middle of the coppice terrace for the time being, the new cabin will become the first aid room, the wiring for the cameras, turnstiles,telephone, computers etc is being run along with all the other services that are required as we speak.

Re: Pitch

What's the betting that the two portacabins will still be there, being used for exactly the same thing in three years' time?

Re: Pitch

The control box is currently located on the floor and we have been instructed to run all cables to it and make everything operational.The cameras will give a general overview of the ground but not every inch.

Re: Pitch

I'm having a difficult time imagining a portacabin in the middle of the Coppice terrace with a control box on top of it.

There will need to be access to them for the people who will be working inside them, so does that mean the Coppice Terrace is effectively split in two for the away fans? Doesn't the location of these cabins in the terrace reduce our capacity further below the necessary 5,000?

It's not on the terrace, it's behind it

Re: Pitch

That makes sense

So the control room will not have visual access to the ground, only via cameras. I presume the police are happy with this.

No the control room will be on top of the new portacabin so in effect it will be above the level of the back wall of the copice end thus giving its inhabitants a view of the pitch.

Re: Pitch

Anyone seen Ceefax today? we are playing a Blackburn 1X next Sat 31st July kick off 1930, or is this a mistake? It seems funny it's only four days after we should have played Burnley. Maybe the pitch has made a sudden recovery, or is it the Police Box that will be up. Or maybe it's a mistake on the date, no doubt the two will tell us next week.

Re: Pitch

Rovers 1st team will still be in Australia next week and there is nothing on their reserves fixture list.

Follow the links from
Blackburn Rovers | Match | Fixtures & Results | Fixtures, Results & Reports for details.

Strangely, for a Saturday match, the BBC have the kick-off as 19:30:
BBC SPORT | Football | My Club | A | Accrington | Fixtures
