the TV gantry should have be made as part of a new roof truss and taken away the need for central supporting pillars, much bigger investment than the bolt on we have but as there seems to be no plans for additional upgrade in the foreseeable future would have been worth it.
seems we are adding LED lighting aswell, noticed the ones in the Arthur at the Man city game and now in the Whitehorse also.

I've sat in the Arthur years ago for the odd game and had forgotten how bad it is. I wish I hadn't seen the pictures of restricted views, my god, that is a fkin disgrace.

The new floodlights are LED. Don't seem as bright as the old ones. I wonder if the TV gantry will switch to the main stand as part of any new development?

I remember writing to Uncle Ron years back asking for the TV cameras to be moved to the old stand roof...it's always better to have the Sun from behind the camera.

I had not realised how bad that gantry makes the view. That is really bad.

No chance. The TV companies like the gantry on the side that faces the dugouts usually, so don't see that happening

Whitehorse and Arthur at the forgotten stands. At least Holmesdale and Main Stand have the bars.

Try walking through the councourse in the Whitehorse at half time, it is a nightmare! As for the staff wow, I got in to queue for a drink 5 minutes before half time and was still queuing 5 minutes into the 2nd half!!

When the Main Stand is re-done one of the first thing to be moved is the static cameras and media facilities. It is terrible watching lens flared footage on Match of the Day every week from Selhurst on a slightly overcast day.

The problem will be that the club will want our shiny new mega-stand constantly being shown as free advertising for the other facilities etc.

Really, I thought it was quite the opposite?

From memory the following clubs have TV cameras facing the dugouts.

Palace, Everton, Spurs, Bournemouth, Watford, Southampton, Burnley and Leicester (8)

The ones that don't are.

Liverpool, Chelsea, Man United, Sunderland, Arsenal, Swansea, Hull, Man City, West Ham, West Brom, Stoke, Middlesborough (12)

I notice that the front article on the official website is the latest 'View from the Stands'. Ironic.

Arthur is on target for a 2050 revamp.

I think that final picture has been taken by someone standing on the chair. Either that or the TV gantry is wonky down that end. I've had the misfortune to be on the last row a few times and you can just see the opposite touch line.

Saying that I think it's an utter disgrace fans have to pay full price for those seats.

For starters - stick the gantry on the roof, do what needs to be done if roof needs strengthening in anyway to support - or stick some remote operated cameras on top of the roof. Refurb the entire concourse and toilets (no excuse for not doing this bit).

I'll bore on again, that away fans pay less. Still overpriced but less than Palace fans (or tourists). Back of Liverpool and the lower tier at QPR rank up there mind.

It would make sense as that would allow more flexibility when we eventually and hopefully knock down the Arthur.

An example would be the Doug Ellis at Villa. Two tier with corporate boxes in the middle with the TV and presumably press facilities above the fans in the top tier.

What it really needs is the Directors/Board members be invited to sit in those seats on a match day, before they truly realise just what a scandal it is expecting paying customers to put up with THAT.
How on earth could approval for that gantry to be erected there be agreed, did they not consider the the restricted view it would cause? I just wonder if those pictures has been seen by Steve Parish, and what his response would be.
