SHEFFIELD - Hillsborough, 1989

Hello.

First of all, apologies if I am posting in the wrong place. I'm new here but hoping that someone can help me out.

I am looking for blueprints/plans of Hillsborough circa 1989. I have got a fairly good plan view but I am missing any elevated views. Can anyone help me out?

Many thanks,
Jamie

If they do take charge, then I hope they spend some money on the stadium. Or build a new one on the Don Valley site.

Quote:
A number of groups have been linked with a takeover, but now a Qatari consortium are understood to be front-runners to gain control at the Championship club.

Football agent Jonathan Hope, who has been fronting the Qatari consortium, has revealed talks are at an advanced stage and hopes a takeover deal will be secured soon.

"The club wanted an investor in terms of a buy-out and I have found a solution," Hope told Sky Sports. "My team have been working endlessly to occupy the requirements set out by Milan Mandaric and find an investor.

"We believe we have now met this and we have agreed a suitable deal which will see the Qatari investors take control of the club and investing substantial amounts in every department to get Sheffield Wednesday back up to the Premier League where they belong and should be.

"I haven't been part of the negotiations, but hopefully the deal will be announced over the next few days and the fans should get excited as this is a very lucrative deal for the club.

"This is a great opportunity for Sheffield Wednesday and we were more than happy to facilitate such a huge deal. I wish them all the best in the future and know there long term plans are in the hands of the right people."

People may or may not want to watch this, but ESPN's 30 for 30 recently aired a Hillsborough episode. It is graphic, and may not be for everyone.

Full doc


Or if you want to watch in smaller 15m video chunks, episode 1 (then follow links)

New owner confirmed, quickly followed by rumours that he wants to redevelop the ground. Hopefully a rumour that turns out to be true, 'cause the stadium deserves some upgrading, especially a new Leppings Lane End. Previous plans:

Looking at those plans it's no wonder England failed in their 2018 bid. What a jumbled mess.

Bit of a stretch, that, seeing as there wasn't even a guarantee Sheffield would be a host city.

Wednesday deserve a redeveloped stadium, considering they are on of the best supported clubs in the Football League. Not too sure about those renderings though..
