It does not surprise me. Having been inside; you can see that no renovation has taken place in decades.

Although River Plate’s stadium is far better, it is probably in a similar state, needing investment.

This is mental. Only a matter of time before a calamity happens

It may look shocking but structures are supposed to move and are designed to absorb and bend - known as plasticity, if it's rigid it's more likely to be brittle and will snap, the engineer in me wonders what the tolerances are or what tests and simulations they have done to find that out.

Finding out they haven't tested it would be far more mental.

Spot on,it’s more likely a surge by a crowd will kill someone than it collapsing

I knew that they were supposed to be flexible, but the shocking part is the massive crack is it not?

I went there for a few games in 2003, absolutely crazy atmosphere but it looked dangerous inside even then- and I doubt much has been done to it in the meantime!

It’s elasticity, not plasticity

Well isn't this just typical of today's world.  They failed my motor on the MOT test just for a fairly insignificant tad of rot.

Once again, a case of one rule for an internationally known Argentinian Primera Division football club and another for the rest of us......

It's all fun and games until someone gets hurt.

Not a quote from any leading architect or health and safety guru, but a quote from my mother, who would make the observation about a dozen times a day during the school holidays when I'd be busy building ramps so I could do jumps on my Grifter, or climbing trees.

At about the same time I went over the handlebars of my Chipper (long forgotten smaller version of a chopper) doing roughly the same thing. I’d be working for NASA now if it were not for head butting a pavement in Cadbury Heath
