When will we have to confirm the location of the Man U game.
Isn't it normally about a month's notice?
So 13th of December, and we'd have to be absolutely confident that the 2 main test events would go perfectly. Seems risky to me.

If we could hold the first test before the 13th and it went well then there would be a good chance. But we know the next mini test is not until the 16th Dec.

A post from an Ar**nal fan regarding our stadium 🤬

“The whole stadium is a joke. I don’t think they can play there this season as the Fa won’t let them now. They had to get in different contractors as they done everything on the cheap. They can’t finish the retail section as they don’t have enough cash which will or curse affect the revenue they bring. It’s only going to get worse for them. If there was ever a club that needs a trophy it’s them. Just not sure they are mentally strong enough”

Fuck me I hate them.
They've pretty much nailed a perfect 'wall-to-wall bullshit' post. It's a full 10/10 for mis-informed, wishful thinking, jealousy.
Have we done everything on the cheap?
What the fuck is our retail section, the shop? Thats open! The bars? They look great!
Don't have enough cash? Yeah after we splashed out in the summer...?!

Just a bit too risky I think. If we said NWHL and then had to change it with not much notice we would get hammered by the FA and would look a laughing stock.

Am no ITK but was speaking to someone who owns company that is a subcontractor at stadium. He told me that the project manager he has spoken to has said the 3 home games at beginning of February are the target. All are relatively easy games and the plan is to go into stadium and quickly establish it as a fortress. I have absolutely no doubt about guy I spoke to, but the PM could be full of shit. Just passing info on.

Nope that’s good exciting info so I’m believing it and there’s nothing you can do about

I think the tv schedule for Feb is around 12th Dec too so I would hope for an announcement before then.

Does that really matter as long as they tell sky which ground to go to before the match.
No it matters because we might have more chance of Sky or BT picking a game to be televised if it's the first at the new stadium.

Ah, I see what you mean, well I guess if Newcastle is announced as a televised match we can assume the club have told sky/BT to be ready.

A couple of the cams have changed to shots of the East stand, would imagine they are about to start cracking on with the veil on that side now.

On the OS Interact they don't seem to show the East stand, have you got a link please?

Surely a replay would be played midweek anyway so doubtful they would open for that
I bet they're glad it was an away draw against a beatable opponent. I fancy it will be Tranmere though.
