Hello Steve, Is there any news regarding a new replacement jumbo screen for next season.
Well done for a bloody wonderful season.

Hello Steve, Is there any news regarding a new replacement jumbo screen for next season.
Well done for a bloody wonderful season.

It's on the list of possible things to do this summer. The budget probably won't stretch to everything on the list but it would certainly be nice to get rid of the current one because it's knackered.

Do you know when the current one was installed Steve? I certainly remember being very impressed with it when we first got it years ago although over the years there's been more than one time I've wished I could flick over to the cricket or the Six Nations rather than watch the pitch

Does next years budget stretch to the clubs infrastructure or is it exhausted trying to stay in the prem another season?

Simon Jordan installed it very early in his tenure so around 2000/01. Remember we also had the fireworks and ticker tape as the teams came out?

We we're discussing this at the Liverpool game. I've been working on Palace TV since 2000 and it was there then, recon it was around 98/99.

The budget will be worked out to allow for a decent transfer kitty for Tony, an increase in the player wage bill, improvements to infrastructure, improvements to the training ground and a sum to be held back for stadium development.

It's still better than Fulham's one. I could barely see it!

Wrong. It was installed by Jordan in 2000.

The exploding dustbins? Marvellous stuff. Baffling but marvellous.

Sounds like a plan:p

Not sure if it's possible Steve, but if a new screen is fitted, could you look into making it as visible as possible from the Arthur? Since the new TV gantry has gone up, we cannot see it from where I sit (row 31).

Able to tell us any other specific things on that list?

Make sure you save enough money for a bathtub and a shed from Wickes so we can get some proper half time entertainment going Steve.

If we can't find the money in the budget,can't we find a friendly sponsor to fund the screen??

:lux::lux::lux:

And you will be hard pressed to find a Palace fan in disagreement!

Our fans get excited about rotten corrugated metal sheeting being upgraded so imagine the questions when plans start to be announced about the ground!! :afro::afro:

Could be an idea to dot smaller screens (50")along the back of the TV gantry so it would replicate what is on the big screen, enabling the back of the Arthur to view.

Fulham's screen size was to do with the load bearing. That's why they went with two. Low res screens though.

Wrong. It was installed by Jordan in 2000.

All I remember was that we were sponsored by Churchill at the time, and we had to endure that awful dog advert they had, oh no no no, oh no no no
arrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrgh!

Got to love the friendliness of message boards. Think the word 'recon' suggested I wasn't 100% sure.

Yes, "on my shed son" which replaced the cross bar challenge
I assume who ever came up with that is now Global Marketing Director for HSBC or some other multinational

Yeah but their picture was sharp - better than ours.

Hi Steve. Please can any new screen have a clock that doesn't stop at 45 and 90 minutes but continues to run so as to show the 'added on' time?

I dont think that clubs are allowed to show the running down of added time.

Sure Ive seen clocks at other grounds that 'count up' after the 90. Would that be a possibility?

If we can't have a clock that counts over the 45-90 min mark if we do get a new screen can you just display a normal clock so we can just see it tick the seconds away?

Football League and Premier League clubs are not allowed to show added time down to the second because of this ambiguity with "the minimum amount of time added" we see the board go up as 4 minutes, obviously if there is another stoppage or if the ref is already thinking that it might be closer to 5 minutes or indeed he adds time on for time-wasting plus many other reasons the powers that be decided they did not want the fans in the ground to know too much in case it led to problems.

Stephen is right, when we first got the current clock graphic it counted past normal time but shortly into that season the referees via the FA requested that we stop the clock at 45 or 90 minutes.

SP tweeted earlier in the week the screen is being replaced. Is it going to be in the same position?

We're waiting for proposals and quotes from contractors.
