  1. My latest video - shot with my pro camera! Hope you enjoy https://youtu.be/OUrQxfYwWjI
  2. Have a new video of the stadium coming soon
  3. Why not, let's play Newcastle there next Friday - their pitch isn't much better than our's LOL
  4. Pretty **** apparently - a friend of mine went and had seats at half way but on the side. He said he needed binoculars to see anything !
  5. He probably needs to stay onside with FFA - trying to worm his way into the establishment
  6. Pretty crazy that these deals were not nutted out just prior to or upon construction commencing. It's like a dad telling his kid he's gonna build him a brand new racing car, kid gets excited for it, then at the last minute goes "hey by the way I'm taking extra pocket money from you so I can get my money back. They (Venues Live) are trying to hold the Eels & Wanderers to ransom but this could backfire badly for them and NSW government. Hopefully sanity prevails and a much fairer outcome can be reached. Ultimately the government stands to lose much more than either the Eels or the Wanderers
  7. Was in a for a quick fire visit to Parramatta last Saturday (15th) and took these pics. Some may be similar to Meurants Lane's post above! Actually the first pic (furthest away) is from my brothers balcony from his unit Cnr Church and Harold Street. Enjoy! Now back on the Coast https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:View_to_stadium_from_Harold_Street_01.jpg https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:View_to_stadium_north_end_from_Leagues_Club_Carpark.jpg https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:View_to_stadium_north_end_from_Leagues_Club_Carpark_02.jpg https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:View_to_stadium_from_OConnell_Street_East_stand_looking_SW.jpg https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:View_to_stadium_from_OConnell_Street_South_East_cnr_Exit_steps.jpg https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:View_to_stadium_from_OConnell_Street_South_East_cnr_Exit_steps_closeup.jpg https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:View_to_stadium_South-West_corner_Upper_tier_construction.jpg https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:View_to_stadium_South-West_corner_Upper_tier_construction_02.jpg https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:View_to_stadium_from_OConnell_St_School_side_SE_corner.jpg https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:View_to_stadium_from_OConnell_St_School_side_East_stand_looking_north.jpg https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:View_to_stadium_from_OConnell_St_School_side_East_stand_looking_south.jpg https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:View_to_stadium_from_OConnell_St_School_side_NE_Entrance_construction.jpg https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:View_to_stadium_from_OConnell_St_School_side_NE_Entrance_construction_closeup.jpg https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:View_to_stadium_from_Victoria_Rd_School_NE_corner.jpg It's looking awesome ! I need to share this story in case someone else cops it like I did. I didn't realise that the South/West corner construction entrance had moved closer to the road. So I'd entered and was taking pics of the SW corner (last tiers to be constructed) when I turned and saw this Construction Security guy (who by the way on the whole have been great with me) who yelled at me to get out. I apologised saying I didn't realise the construction entrance had moved and that I was just getting a few more pics. He was a right wanker (I was not in the way of any vehicle or workers) and again yelled 'get out now' as I was telling him to calm down (and that I'd traveled a long way to get these pics). I gave it back saying I'd leave when I'm ready !! which I did eventually !! The guy was on a power trip - so beware if you're down the south end taking pics
  8. No the playing field is not 7 metres below ground. I spoke with some of the contractors on the 'Fan Day / WSS open day' about this point just prior to Parra Stadium being knocked down. It was clear from early construction that they were right as the earthworks were built up (most be around 7 metres) and structures built on top of the concrete laid at the top of the sides of the stadium. Hence field level is not 'below ground' as such, everything else is built up around it.
  9. Anymore pics or video updates ? Doesn't look like I'll be down in Sydney anytime soon!
  10. I'm not sure that this is the correct thread for this, but I wanted to grant our fantastic supporters the honour of sharing a video I've been preparing since late last year. It's my latest video thats a visual history of our old stadium, even before that as Cumberland Oval to what is about to become the new home for Wanderers and Eels. And yes, I'm a supporter of both clubs! So here it is (just under 10 mins) - i've used some video and pics plus used my own videos and pics for this production. By all means, let me know what you think! Click here to view
  11. Don't necessarily hate it, but it's certainly not a Football stadium
  12. We should be able to do what they did just prior to ANZ (then Stadium Australia) opening. A big fan day where you get to walk around and through the stadium. I did that at ANZ: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Stadium_Australia_Walked_stadium_first_certificateJPG.jpg
