Re: Burnley looking to redevelop the Cricket Field stand

The stand opposite the main stand at the Sixfields in Northampton is double sided and serves as a grandstand for the adjacent Athletics Track. Surely it couldn’t be beyond the wit of an architect to design something similar at the Turf? Maybe the Pavilion could remain more or less in its original fo...

Paul Smith. Came in under Heath, but stagnated under Waddle. I don’t think that Ternent’s Managerial style brought the best out of him.
He was so talented. Such a great left foot. I’d have loved for Dyche to work on him. He could’ve made him a top player.
