I'm absolutely gutted about this decision. B of the Bang was a bold and brilliant work of modern art and made the entire stadium complex instantly recognisable. The people who have decided to destroy this grand statement are the type of people who tear down historic buildings on the grounds that they don't fit in with modern tastes. Don't suppose anyone enquired as to whether or not our owners would be willing to fund the necessary repairs?

Get rid of it and put up a large BLUE football with a map of the world painted on to show the football world is BLUE
