Kan ha noe med sammenhengen mellom rulleblad og goodwill å gjøre.  ;D

Front of East Stand closed off with barriers this morning, seemingly to stop cars parking in front. Exterior work starting? #LUFC

Rebuilt from the ground up

By Jon Howe

What does Leeds United's repurchase of Elland Road mean for the city and community?



“Leeds United have finally turned the corner”. It’s a sentiment common among Leeds fans in recent years. Whatever corner we thought we had turned, though, it certainly wasn’t the right one - so we turned another, then another, and well, you get the picture.

Leeds United: a yellow white and blue Pacman, attempting to navigate the sharp-angled corridors of English football while being sent wildly off course by various trapdoors, hooded anti-heroes and acts of profound self-implosion. It’d be amusing to watch, if your nerves hadn’t just been napalmed into submission having lived through every painful second of it.

Sometimes in life, however, an event happens that knocks you on the head like a Tony Yeboah thunderbastard from 35 yards, and you awake with a different perception of what’s important, and a refreshing clarity on what a more promising future now holds.



For Leeds United fans, this particular event happened on Wednesday 28 June 2017. Pop it on your calendar. On this day Leeds United repurchased its home ground, Elland Road, from an anonymous offshore company in the British Virgin Islands, thus taking the first bold step in realigning the football club with the heart and soul of its fanbase, and in many ways re-attaching itself to its own history.

The rest of the football world have often looked at Leeds United’s follies in recent years with deep mirth at its continuing plight - the tribal nature of this jungle means we don’t expect any sympathy (Many fans of other clubs haven’t even realised that while presided over by an award-winning cast of arch-villains and slapstick stooges - Leeds United have not even owned their own ground. Why would they?) so when the news rapidly spread on 28 June, I expect not one football fan around the country exclaimed a hearty “good for you”. But maybe a few quietly thought to themselves: “I hope that never happens to my club”.

Of course football is eating itself whole through media saturation, ownership structures based in far off continents and enough financial complexities to make Mike Ashley wince, but at its core is a fairly simple concept; you pick your team and go to watch them regularly at their home ground, with generations of family. It applies to every league in the world.

On the outside looking in, maybe not much has changed at Elland Road. Leeds United have always played there, and that they would continue to do so was never in doubt. But to most Leeds United fans there was always something missing; a devil on the shoulder reminding us that our house wasn’t our home, it was someone else’s. Maybe it’d slip your mind, because for year after year, owning it again was never a realistic proposition, reminded only by each new owner boldly claiming (without any foundation) that reclaiming it was one of their targets.

It’s been rare for any Leeds United fan over the last 13 years to truly believe and declare that “yes, this is a football club going places” - it’s impossible to do that while the ground’s ownership resided with someone else; while the club wrestled with the debilitating weight of an annual £1.7million rent agreement, and the chasm between Leeds United and rude financial health remained so vast.

That new owner Andrea Radrizzani has so swiftly sought to address this, is sufficient reason for Leeds fans and the city of Leeds itself to arrest themselves for big things to come. The ‘Elland Road’ question had become the acid test of any Leeds United ownership regime, and while a procession of them were stigmatised by their failure in this respect, Radrizzani made his intentions very clear, very early on, and somehow you just knew from that point it was actually going to happen.

Leeds United has watched the Leeds Rhinos become the most visible sporting institution in the city, and has managed to exist in its own bubble for some time now; physically based in LS11, but in reality it could have been anywhere. Out of touch with and shunned by the key business leaders who have thrived in their blissful isolation, and given a cold, uncooperative shoulder by a local Government who can’t be seen to be wastefully championing such repeatedly incoherent folly, it has taken a clear vision, a measured professional approach and an estimated £20million outlay to bring Leeds United truly back into its own community.

Radrizzani has firm plans to bring the club’s training base and academy back from the wilds of an outpost nearer the centre of York than the centre of Leeds, and to build a headquarters based on the currently council-owned land around Elland Road. This will most likely spread around varying areas of the neighbourhood, with satellite centres dotted about to demonstrate that Leeds United is more than just a fortnightly traffic nuisance to the nearby community, but a living breathing entity that was once etched into every fibre of the city and will be again.

It takes money of course, and money talks. But you still need to be an organisation that people want to talk to and work with. You still need to be something people want to be associated with and be proud of, and it’s amazing what you can do when everyone just gets along and shares a vision - You can build a spirit of achievement and pride. You can build a community. You can build a football club.

During 'living the dream' the east stand used to be lit up with cracking external lighting every night.
 
Coming home on the train from London it was a great sight and always something looming on the horizon in Leeds - it kept it in your mind.
 
You could make it out from Baildon Moor in Bradford -.
 
Not as good as the diamonds but on every night

Does that flame still burn, does that fire still glow

WHITES READY TO UNVEIL NEW LOOK ELLAND ROAD

WHITES READY TO UNVEIL NEW LOOK ELLAND ROAD
After a summer of building and design work, the club stands ready to unveil an exciting new look to Elland Road ahead of the upcoming 2017/18 season.

Following Chairman Andrea Radrizzani’s purchase of the stadium and in line with his vision to take Leeds United forward, improvements are being made across Elland Road with the club working closely with Leeds based agency, The Works.

The inside of the West Stand, dressing rooms and hospitality suites in the East Stand are all undergoing changes and new creative has been designed to dress the front of the East Stand, South Stand and the North-East corner of the ground. The new creative concepts feature legends from the club’s prestigious past as well as current day heroes.

Managing Director Angus Kinnear said: “Whilst we’re building for sustainable success with our key focus remaining on sensible financial management, we knew we wanted to give back to the fans as well.  We felt it was important that our home should honour our heritage, celebrate our first team squad and make loyal and passionate fans proud on matchdays.”

The new branding around Elland Road will be revealed at our home game with Preston North End on Saturday 12th August.

The club has worked closely with the council throughout in delivery of the project, and some of the developments are still subject to planning permission.
