New stands making it cold

Post by SandyLaneClaret » Mon Dec 16, 2019 8:14 am

I think the new corner stands, while needed, make it increasingly cold in the Longside upper due to the wind having nowhere to escape to. Don't think I've ever been as cold at a home game as I was on Saturday. That is all.

Wasn't it just, erm, a very cold day?
I'm not fluid dynamics expert, but I'd say that, if wind has nowhere to escape from an enclosed area, it will build a positive pressure.
This will, in turn, prevent more wind (which is essentially high pressure equalising low pressure) from entering into the space.

I think it was just very cold. :D

Scarborough at home, early 90's, Associate members Cup ... 0-0 after 90 minutes and match abandoned before extra-time started as the pitch froze as the game progressed. Definitely the coldest, and I was 29 then !!

Coventry at home around 2003 is the benchmark we use for coldness

I actually think it’s warmer with the new corner stands and I sit in an exposed area. It’s been far far colder than that at Turf Moor.

If it really had nowhere to escape it would just blow the roof off.

I reckon it is less windy in the Bob Lord stand now that the corners have been filled in. Having said that, it was still a cold one on Saturday.

It wasn't the cold that got me on Saturday it was the constant breeze which you never used to get, at least where I sit.

If they changed the big screen to an old fashioned CRT set it would generate so much heat we could all take our coats off, especially if they put one on top of the other stand as well.

'...In 1969, a new, bigger stand was built at a cost of £180,000 (£2.91 million as of 2019) at the Cricket Field End that incorporated changing rooms and a players' tunnel, which had previously been a part of the Brunshaw Road stand.[14] Under-seat heating was installed in the Cricket Field End, but after the first time it was used, chairman Bob Lord deemed it uneconomical and expensive, and it was never again switched on...'

50 years on - maybe try switching on the heating again...Bob wouldn't mind! ;)

Hartlepool on a miserable Tuesday night in the early 90s was the coldest. Fingers froze, Bovril froze, even time froze...

Think the players froze (figuratively as well as actually). Thrilling 0-0 draw.

Them were the days......

I think that wins the prize.

Took me four and a half hours to get home to Manchester thru the snow. Got stuck twice on A56 and had to wait for sow ploughs. Bloody BMws, that was my last one

That was a cold, cold night. I remember being stuck on Harry Potts Way after the game, running on fumes and staring at a traffic light with massive icicles hanging off it. I was supposed to be going to a birthday party at Marl Pitts in Rossendale - but it took me 4 hours to get home.

I remember going to Norwich away over the Christmas period about 12-14 years ago. I was on the 2nd row and had snow actually piled on my knee, think it took us 8 hours to get down

Out of interest, what precautions did you take against the cold, since the weather forecast was to be v cold?
(I wasn't cold, but I had a thick Aran sweater on, my fleece under my duffel, thick hikers socks and boots, and gloves. Yes, I know, I'm soft, but at least I was warm).
I see some people at matches who are either really tough or just unprepared. Even the Geordies kept their tops on!

Top pitch particularly. Wind up and 21 players in one half of the pitch all the game. You must have been the one not in that half.

Surely by the time you got to about 12 up, you could just have gone upfield and joined them? :)
It would have been pretty low risk.

Portsmouth away when Beresford got sent off
Close thread :)
Remember standing on the open end at Fratton for that one (wasn't it New Years Day ?) and being about as cold as I've ever been anywhere, never mind just at a football match. After we went behind I seem to remember some of our players started deliberately sliding around like Torville and Dean presumably to influence the referee into considering an abandonment. Didn't work sadly.

Hartlepool (1985/86) remains the worst for me but Oxford (1983/84) and Portsmouth (1994/95) are very worthy of mention.
