This is about the strangest argument I've ever seen on here. Bibcat there's no need to be so antagonistic, you've already had a warning recently. If you keep insulting people directly you'll end up with a ban, though I'm not going to increase your warning bar on this occasion. Not really sure why or what you two are bothering arguing over this for. Move on please

No!.. I simply put a point across and your calling me antigonstic.. What am I supposed to do when called a pratt and instead of apology its elaborated on..
It seems you have one rule for some and different for others it's not the first time is it?

So if I had told you you had limited intelligence you'd be totally OK with that would you?

I do my best to be even handed, not pretending I get it right every time. You come on the site and attack people needlessly and create more work for admins who volunteer, and for myself who runs this site at a loss so that people have a place to discuss Spurs.

Call me stupid but can anyone throw any light on this....

The turf pitch will be on three trays which will move in and out of the stadium on some form of rollers. The rolling mechanism will have to,be on the ground yes? On the sides of the outer sections I can see this but what about the rollers for the middle section and inside of outer sections, there's an artificial pitch underneath. They never covered that in 'basic science' at school.Anyone know about this?

I presume the sections stay in place on their moveable trays, the wheels (as such) could either be fixed permanently, or the trays are lowered into their position and the wheels removed. Either way think of a mechanic working in a pit on the underneath of a car using hydrolics. I've only applied common sense, not looked it up.

If we get all sci-fi, perhaps it's a bit like blofelds lair and the pitch rises up from a special growing basement area deep under the new stadium, where Levster grows copious amounts of weed during the close season to help finance the build. Perhaps that's why you see nothing going on with the stadium. it's all being done under ground and will rise up like a phoenix from the flames to a fanfare of trumpets and the world will realise that the sleeping giant has woken. Be afraid............be very afraid!!

I cannot help looking,over and over,at the design and pictures of what the new stadium will look like. All the various private boxes, the different hospitality rooms such as the H and Tunnel club. The cheese and wine provisions etc etc .All look fantastic but let's be honest they are not for the majority of fans. Unfortunately ,unlike most of you, living in South Wales I cannot get to the ground as much as I would like.What does a trip up bring me enjoyment though, despite an entertaining victory that is? Well I never minded a drive up on my own,most friends don't support Spurs ,do what I like, park at Stamford Brook, love the crowded underground with lots of fans,better than a quiet carriage with a few pretending to read a book(now it's using a mobile).
The walk to the ground from Seven Sisters,very pleasant 40 minutes although better going than returning as so many seem to run now to get to the underground before others. Something to eat from one of the burger vans,especially one just across the road,lovely 12" hotdog with a warmed roll. Have a chat to one of the stewards outside, cracking.get to seat about 40minutes before kick off ,enjoy watching others come in, back out got to have a pie that's mandatory. Watch a really good game,hopefully a win. Rain, so what ,will not kill you. People leaving early, what's the matter with them?

What will change with the new stadium and how will it affect the ordinary fan? It won't be the Tunnel or H club, the cheese and wine. Possibly the planned food court will be good.Certainly the super fast beer being served up, hope there will be cider as well .Hope the hot dog vans are still there!

Wonder if the wife will want to come as she has done the last few times....does not want to drive home the same day, wants a hotel in Chiswick, does not want to walk from Seven Sisters wants the bus, does not like police horses.She'll go for the food court not a hot dog or pie. She will love the escalators, well she does have a point there.

Hope the revenue gained from the 'posh' aspects of the stadium is for the benefit of the team .

Being from Dublin my experience is a similar one except I jump off Stanstedt express in Tottenham Hale get the train back one stop to Northampton Park stroll up Park Lane after fish n chips in the chippie near station n a quick visit to the Spurs shop that's there less frenetic than one one High Road. After match causally retrace my steps back to Stanstedt

The enjoyment is the whole day not just the game. It's about the match day experience.

Been trawling the internet about how the pitch moves.....Populous have worked with 6 other specialist technological companies on this. The way it works is incredible. There are no rollers that need to be resting on the artificial pitch. In the base of each of the three trays into which the pitch is laid, are 3 million air jets. Compressed air will be forced downwards from these jets. The created pressure will lift the trays .This is how a hovercraft works . In the sides of each of the trays and under the stand will be thousands of 'micro' magnets. The attraction of these will then draw the trays underneath the stand. As magnets also repel, the reverse proceedure will be employed to move the pitch sections back into position over the NFL pitch.

what a load of hassle to to play a game of footie :grinny: the way things are going players will soon need a degree in Neuclear physics, to work out the trajectory od the ball, and how many times it will rotate from leaving the boot to arriving at next player or goal, and will these number of rotations decrease the velocity, taking into account the speed of the earth at the equater, iit is faster than the speed of 60 degrees north and 60 degrees south,

so that would mean that trainers whould have to be able to spit the atom, :grinny: my my my how the game has changed. :cheers:

I have read this twice, and can't see the bit about the 6 pints of beer prior to entering the ground. An over site I suppose

Has anyone got any insight to the planned schedule. That's to say, when is the old south stand being demolished, when are the starting on the new south stand, when does the roof go on, when are they starting to build the houses and offices etc ?

Love watching the live cam at the new stadium when the guys go for their breaks. It's like watching the ghosts move around in pacman. Brilliant!

They shouldn't be taking breaks, and if Mr levy finds out, heads will role

Other than the remainder of the old south stand going it looks the same as it did about 3 weeks ago. I think they will struggle to get it ready for August next year

Most of the outside work I would imagine is getting the mechanics installed for the retractable pitch.
I am puzzled though as the front of the steel stand looks awfully high.Iknow there's a logical reason for it looking like that but I simply cannot fathom it out.
