Attendance restrictions on events at Wembley led to numerous empty seats at Tottenham's Premier League win over Cardiff on Saturday.

Reading the quotes from Poch that is madness if he (and therefore presumably the players as well) were unaware the top tier was closed.

Surely somebody at the club would make them aware what to expect??!!

The lower and middle tier makes up 50, 835 seats

Only 43k bothered going and they are/were bloody lucky that many turned up considering the piss poor communication and ticket pricing by the club

It's such a shame that we all support such a great club but those who are the custodians treat us like shit time and time again

It was a case of after the Lord Mayor's show yesterday, and the feast of quality football re Barcelona.
Always promised to be a pretty poor game against Colin Wankers Cardiff in the rain, and it certainly turned out that way.
I cannot remember seeing such a poor second half of football yesterday - only a 0-0 against Stoke in the AVB era just before Christmas runs it close for such mediocre entertainment.
I go whatever, but I certainly was not buoyed with enthusiasm walking up there yesterday. I think most are just fed up with Wembley now, and want to go home!.

It says something that even though I'm an ST holder I was pleased to be invited to Milton Keynes Ikea by Mrs Johnson rather than watch Cardiff and the shenanigans of the subhumans that pass for their fans.

I used my city and Cardiff money to buy Barcelona and PSV tickets.
City is a Monday, so I'll struggle to go to see us battered, and Cardiff are just piss poor and boring so I couldn't be arsed.
Even though we lost 2-4 I think I made the right choice for Barcelona over Cardiff.

It seems I will probably get all my ST money back come May.

Wembley is just a trek for me.
