Tranmere usually have loads of tickets available. Cheap, too. Someone should do something or all the kids will be Tranmere fans soon.

That's why those temporary walls are there though, to hide away the work going on behind, so you won't see any of the changes until they connect the completed work to the entrance to the tunnel area.

I mean it's a bit of a leap to go from seeing so little on some videos to 'next season'  ;D
Still convinced that the internals are going to be completed by the end of Jan?

Does it matter if it's not completed by the end of January?

No one is debating that, it's just strange the club havent said anything either way. All statements have said internals would be finished by Jan but everything else suggests otherwise.

Have you seen anything behind the temporary walls which is all you can see on the tunnel cam?

"Everything else" being you seeing something on the tunnel cam. There is nothing else.

You can tell that it's not going to be ready by the end of April. We'll see who's right in a few weeks I guess!

I've not said it will be done by any date, I've said the club has said by end Jan and that seeing some tunnel cam video of the temporary corridors give zero indication otherwise.

For all you know behind those corridors the work is 99% complete and they will commence connecting new to old shortly - that's the whole point of the temporary corridors, to hide away the work until complete.


Not particularly interested in a game of I told you so though, but thanks for the offer.

Do you work in construction? The end of April is miles off. You can't tell anything from what's publicly available.

For me the tunnel cam videos indicate that the internals won't be ready. I won't bore you with the details but it looks like that will be the case from the things I can see in that video.

I'm used to internal fit-outs and what I saw on the tunnel cam is a mix of  permanent partitions and temporary hoardings hiding the main fitout areas that can come down over a weekend and an open ceiling grid that looks unfinished but again, putting in the tiles and closing up is a couple of days work at the end of the job. There is absolutely no way of telling how complete things are behind the scenes.

They could be a week away from completion or six months. Unless you've been behind the scenes or seen the contractors site report and programme it's just pointless speculation.

One other thing that often happens at this stage is that the client sees things almost finished and asks for changes. I can imagine Klopp will be making a few tweaks to the changing rooms and people will be re arranging office layouts etc. Partitions, first fix and major services will all have been complete for some time now I would expect and it will be second fix and fine finishes going in with furniture and fittings as the last elements.

Out of curiosity. Where are the temporary changing rooms situated? Just been looking at the planning application to see if I can spot them on it. No joy though.

Pretty sure there just in the carpark were the coach goes in from the tunnel videos the club have released this season

I traced the route from that video the Plymouth fan posted and it looks like they're somewhere around the carpark at the bottom centre right. The route goes through the conference room then along the corridor to the left of the away changing rooms then left where it says 'Players, officials & team staff before turning right down the tunnel to the pitch. When I have time I'll do a better check of using the post match footage (counting ceiling tiles etc) and do a mark up.

In light of the previous comments about completion it suggests that the tunnel cam view is showing a tiny proportion of the back of house facilities - primarily corridor areas with ceiling tiles waiting to go in.

That plan can't be the latest as there are a few details out of place.

*edit - that looks like the planning drawing for ground level. There were definitely changes from that as the retail store is now being built next to the Albert.  I;m not sure if there's an updated scheme in the public domain.

I don't think we were given an updated version once it was announced the retail store would be outside of the stand itself. So no clarification on what that retail space is now going to be used for.

I thought it was still a store and they're just adding another store which will be open on non match days and have a cafe etc for the tourists.
