I had a quick whizz up to the City of Manchester Stadium and the ‘B of the Bang’ has been sunk into the ground, but there is obviously lots of more bits to weld on before it reaches its final height. (Click on pic for a larger version)
I was expecting to find the structure all silver and shiny but it isn’t. It has a uniform rust colour and will get even rustier over the years which is a bit of a let down. When did you ever see a matt-rust coloured explosion?
The weather won’t help in that respect. Like many other parts of the country, we had torrential rain last night and thunder and lightning so bad that Man U cancelled a match which is pretty much unheard of in my experience. Fingers-crossed for the weekend, eh?
