From Page 4 for Carolina ;)


TBF that’s pretty impressive But it’s not Wembley
Where we have to play them the day after an NFL game . Or does Wembley have one as well ?



Apologies Carolina. I thought for some reason this fiasco had been avoided.
I notice that the nfl are there for the 3 Sundays before our game :o

Grid iron football, is a disaster for a football pitch . How are they going to remove all the markings within 18 hours ?

The pitch will be just as bad for both teams. It makes no sense playing this game on a monday night.

It's OK, Spurs can pay for a new pitch, just like they did for Rochdale when they played them in the cup.

Spurs tried to get the FA Cup game away to Rochdale switched to another ground because of the state of the pitch last season. Now they don't seem to have any problems with how it'll be at Wembley after being used for American 'football' for 3 successive weekends.

There's apparently an exposé in Construction News about workers on the stadium drinking and taking cocaine on the job. On the phone at the moment, so can't search for it.

When are these liars going to be fined for their incompetence ?

Stadium will not be ready to open until 2019 at the earliest.

I saw the other day that their new club shop is up and running. Glad they got their priorities right.

Saw a lad at work today who has a few mates down in London who’ve worked on the stadium. Reckons a number of Arsenal, Chelsea and West Ham fans have deliberately done poor work and not conformed to safety standards which is one of the reasons for the delay.

City are refunding all non refubdable travel tickets, Spurs gave fuck all. City also putting on free coach travel from the Etihad to Wembley.

Can't see it, and not sure why they would. There'll probably have a minute's silence but even that is difficult as nobody has been officially named.

BBC saying the chairman was on board, but saying nothing else for time being, head of fire and rescue asking for privacy having just left a multi agency emergency meeting.

Spurs have been great, went out of their way to tell us the rearranged time and location, could have kept it secret and got the points!

Fair point Hutch's , didn't consider that, now we can watch Harry Hotspur claim Sergio's goals.
