I want to put a positive spin on the stadium away from the loo complaints etc.

One of the biggest accolade and compliments that I believe we had was coming out of the mouth of our nemesis, Adrian Durham from Talk sport.

He admitted on radio this past week that he went to the new stadium recently, with a view to knit pick and find faults, with a view of coming on to his radio show "Drive" to ask "what the fuss was about, the stadium wasnt all that"!

He however confessed that it blew his mind and that he was gob smacked and in awe of it, and he had nothing but admiration for a job well done

Yea he was in the away end for the Brighton game.

He couldn’t say anything bad, sounded as giddy as we all do about it

Are you going to give up your ST then if you can’t relocate ?

Well tbh i originally bought a season ticket just to jump the waiting list queue for one....i was 43,000 on the list when offered. But we are saving for our first house and so 2200 is alot to spend even thought i could afford it and just save less. Essentially i am being a tight b******.
I think next season i will just get a couple of memberships and pinch tickets here and there. I have a couple of people i know who have season tickets and they will give me first offering if they cant make it.
But i am still not 100% certain, i love nwhl and was always a dream to have a season ticket year after year.

Choosing not to spend £2200 on 19 games of football is not "being a tight b******“ dude!

Tottenham insist there is no cause for alarm, and that issues they are experiencing are similar to those when other large buildings are opened.

A club spokesperson said: “It is normal to be granted a game by game safety certificate at a new event based venue and it was always the case that we would work in this way when we first opened.

“This gives the local authority time to work with the Club to review safety procedures and crowd flows.
I'm sure I read similar last year. They are pretty accommodating unless you present a venue that is half finished. Then they get the hump.

There are 900~ professional clubs in Europe. If he visited the grounds for every single one plus 10 non-club affiliated stadiums in each country that's still only 1200 and around 1100 left to go.
Well he counts NWHL as a new ground and I dare say he visited OWHL.
Likewise the Emirates and their previous ground, dial square or wherever.
But he must also have taken in a lot of non-league stadiums.

I accounted for that first part in the generous 10 stadium per country supplementary allowance. Probably the second part top.

His number is 1.5 football grounds per week for 40 years.

Are you counting rebuilt stadiums as well? Think we can assume that this guy has been watching football a long time.
