Cobbold Stand - full effect... 15:11 - Jul 22 with 2512 viewshoppy

Apologies if someone has already posted the stand in full, I'd only seen sections up til now... but it looks pretty impressive, really...

(if you click on the images, I've uploaded them at a pretty good resolution to open and view them individually)

Makes a huge difference! I wonder if they could do anything to cover or tidy up the brick work above it?

What are the two images between Golden Days and the UEFA Cup?

These look great but highlight just how much the rest of that stand needs a lick of paint

Looks really good, such a simple thing and yet neglected for too long (like much else at ITFC).


Good to see what a decent graphic designer can do too.

I actually like the brickwork and the 'antique' looking exposed struts as well. Bet there are not many grounds around the country that have got such an interesting looking old stand. That Muriel has utterly transformed the back view of that stand for me, really, really great work.

Now if Portman Road could be quickly pedestrianised in the next two weeks with some tasteful herringbone into a smooth concourse without the ankle-breaking curbstones, and the statue of God installed, that would do until the major stand rebuild in the summer of 2023 in advance of the Premiership season...

The only thing I know is that I might be wrong about everything else.

There was a man with a big number 12 on his back that was just stood there, staring at this one, looking confused...

Naaa it’s part of the character. The windows were the worst thing about the ground.

There is only so much they can do to improve the appearance of an old stand but they have done an impressive job while paying tribute to the history and a number of Town favourites.

A good start for the new regime.

yes it's changed from looking like an eastern block building from the 1960's to something resembling alright.

Yeah valid point! I did wonder if a couple of large badges in the spaces might stop it from looking a bit empty? I think the work that has been done kind of exaggerates it more.

The one bit I wasn't overly keen on was the bit either side of where the awnings are above what was the centre spot... where it's just a repeating Suffolk punch pattern. I would've preferred just a continuity of a few more players montaged together - without the need for any wording on them...

Apologies. I believe people call it 'The Premier League' these days. I thought I'd swallow my distaste and call it something other than it's correct name, which as we all know, is the 'Football League 1st Division', and of course I burgered it up.

The only thing I know is that I might be wrong about everything else.

Could they do the same thing in yellow and green without any words or pictures? Asking for a Giant Ullaa.

Looks great. Lets hope the two 'our Town our Team' sections get replaced with our back to back promotion campaigns.
