So much grey, but hopefully they'll use the club colours to eventually tart it up and make it more personal.

Rendering over the block work on the concourses would make a big difference to the feel of the place.

The cladding is actually silver, not grey and look better in the flesh than it does on most of the photos.

Agree the breezeblock lower section does not look great.

However if you look at the internal pics you will see some of the large murals of past players that have been placed around the concourses.

They actually break up the greyness and also give fans something to read and look at pre match.

More murals are being added this year

The North stand now has all the main cladding on it..

Just needs the trim applying to tidy things up and seal up the gaps.

With the "easy" stuff done, they are starting to work on the awkward bits linking to the South stand.

Well the stadium cladding work is now as good as done. Just a few touches left to finish the whole thing off.

West stand is now completely clad now that the remaining gap has been sealed in

The East stand. This is the away end, I like how they have put the big red sign above the turnstiles. Almost like a fans equivalent of THIS IS ANFIELD.

Bit of work to do at the corner of the East and South stands

The vibrancy and colour of the stadium will increase further if the giant LED video wall due to be fitted to the corner of the South and East stands gets given planning permission.
