WHU are playing at home and their ST prices are much lower than ours

Also they probably give away or sell loads of match day tickets at very cheap prices

If you dont go to West Ham anymore you have given up on them due to the move and not liking the new stadium and location

Nobody has given up on Tottenham yet or stopped supporting the club. We are just completely and utterly pissed off by the clubs handling of the whole situation and will not go to that ground anymore.

If it is a final or semi it was always going to be at Wembley which makes it a completely different event,proposition and circumstance
what do you mean by the clubs handling? you make sound like it's only the fans that have been effected which is complete crap

I did say they charge less probably why they have lower quality players. I don't quite get why Wembley is hard to get to though, it is served by three tube lines , London Overground and National Rail .
When they start closing the High Rd in Tottenham 2 hours before and up to one hour after a game we will see which is easier to get too and away from NWHL or Wembley with the same size crowd. .
Getting to and from Wembley is about number 287 on the list of why that place is so Shite to have to go week in week out

i mean the club have taken the piss out of us
how?

I think they would rather us all being sat at the new lane. Wembley is the only option, and they aren't forcing you to go and are offering you a refund of the full amount. if they said they where only going to refund the difference per match compared to last season then I can understand it.

it's not their fault there has been a delay, it's Mace and their contractors or even the possiblitlty of wanker chav, spam or goon workers fucking things up on purpose. it's costing the club an absolute fortune every single game in refunds, and renting Wembley

If it is true about the fire marshals I can only assume they have taken a sensible view of the situation in that the likelyhood of there being a fire is very low, pretty negligible in fact, I've been going for over fifty years and I've never heard fire alarm. If there was a fire it would likely only effect one area and I don't doubt that the fire marshals could raise the alarm effectively to get people out.
A sensible and pragmatic approach, let's hope it is the case.

Yes, "fan fury" is Talksport managing to find one Spurs fan to moan.
Also the phrase they used was 'even though its NOWHERE NEAR COMPLETION'.
Utter shit stirring bollocks.
I love that we annoy the fuck out of Sky and Talksport by keeping one of their favorite cash rich clubs out of the top 4.
Eat shit TS :poop:

For all those complaining about the pricing at Wembley for the Southampton game I doubt very much if the game had been played at NWHL that tickets would have been lower probably even costlier. The cheapest ST at NWHL is £795 , and that is only for a tiny section which works out at £41 per game, even when they break the games into Cat A,B & C I can't see seats being available for less than £40 even for a Cat C game based on what ST's are being charged . Of course what made things worse at Wembley was that upper tier was only available to ST's and not on sale to others.

Plus the fact that it's just less attractive at Wembley. People will pay £40 for a ticket at NWHL which they wouldn't at Wembley. But yeah, I do think members are in for a rude shock as to how much pricier it's going to get for them.

It's not putting peoples safety at risk. You say what if the radios failed, what if the new fire system fails or what if all the fire marshals suddenly become unconscious etc theres what ifs for every scenario
Presumably there isn't much to catch fire? Looks like glass and concrete. Or has it been constructed from balsa wood?

One thing at Wembley that is better is the food outlets available in the LDO need a Pret in the High Rd.

In the good old days, there was nothing to burn - just concrete and steel.
Only the very old wooden stands could go up.
But this new ground is posh and will have office furnishing and tons of wiring.
Restaurants and kitchens and cheese rooms and plant rooms. It is combustible.

Not to come over all Danny Rose on this, but the worst thing that could happen to my mind is a plane being flown into the thing. 20,000 dead instantly, 40,000 injured most suffering from smoke inhalation too.
The stadium will be pitch black and full of thick diesel smoke. All the minimum wage marshals will have legged it - they did not sign up for this.
What happens next determines whether another 20,000 die. Your call.

True, the more likely disaster by far is a plant room catching fire in the night, and undetected it takes out a stand.

I guess it comes down to whether insurance companies will take on the risk and at what price.

What's disturbing is that you've actually spent your time visualising this scenario.
Are u ok?

It would appear that the daily fail has failed to do its research, In a roundabout way it is blaming Spurs for building so close to the local residents, I haven't looked at the plans for some time, however I was under the impression that all that housing in front of the West Stand was due for re-development. There was to be an avenue like Wembley Way.

Fixed:


Test match 30th Dec late kick-off due to Palace v Chelski at 12. Test match 9th Jan 3pm 1st PL game #Manutd Few more boxes to tick before the above is announced. Nothing ventured nothing gained #todareistodo #COYS
It's a nice thought, but don't the builders knock off for Christmas on the 21st December?
It the stadium is good to go by the 30th then it was good to go the week before - 22/23rd Dec.

And what if the first test reveals a whole list of things that need correcting before a safety certificate can be issued? Probably more related to making the areas still being worked on safer or making exit routes larger, creating more space on the plinth etc etc. There wont be anyone around to do the work as they don't start up again until the 7th Jan I believe.

The 2nd and full house test event being on a midweek seems bold. Surely that should be a weekend game?
And issues raised in this game would only have 3 days to be resolved before Utd on the 13th Jan.

Wembley/Utd have to be notified in a week time if this fixture is the goal, and before we know what other issues the test events reveal.
If you were the premier league then given the club's recent dodgy record on meeting deadlines, would you trust the club to meet this one? I'd tell Levy to f off until he can produce the certificates.

By my guestimate it will March for the 1st game at the earliest - the arse payback game and that will be a pretty risky fixture for an opening game.

But you never know - one day the optimists on this thread are going to be right.

The stadium does look tremendously out of place at the moment, to be fair.
