Does anybody know if this will be at Wembley or at the new stadium ? After all it is less than a month away

The game vs United is definitely at Wembley, at least thats what my ticket says. Surely we cant be opening the new stadium with a home game against Watford on a Wednesday night

We're expecting official word tomorrow.

The sun reporting it's expected to be March although club are hoping sooner.

March is my educated guess also.

This is so ridiculous. It was August, then September, then October, etc etc.

At what point do we just say next season?

Is it even a good idea to start playing in the new stadium past the middle of a season? The boys will be as unfamiliar to it as the opposition. I think we should just hold our hands up and admit we f***ed it and start fresh next August.

Although I suspect Levy will have financial reasons to get us in ASAP but from footballing terms we should just stick it out in Wembley.

Our away form is pretty good this season so hoping a change of home venue won't faze us much. Plus the crowd should be buoyed by it.

It is ridiculous but in fairness to the club they haven't once said a date since the first time it got pushed, all the dates have been leaks or press bs. Even now March is just based on an estimate of how long it'll take to sort out the test events and whatnot. I'm still hoping it's sooner.

Some reports are blaming the stadium delays and added costs on spurs zilch transfer activity ?

I read somewhere it costs spurs £350.000 per game at wembley , so i think levy should get us in the new stadium asap simply for financial reasons.

It's a lot more than 350k. We paid 15M last season and would be a premium this season I'd imagine as we didn't arrange so many games up front.

Weíve lost profits on food and drink also. However, surely our average gate receipts from attendances at Wembley are much higher than 36,000 at the Lane.

Probably griff ! i lose track of it all to be honest.

Tom reckons £15 mill for a season at wembley ! that for a start is something we didnt have at whl.

Remember there are attendance restrictions in place at wembley now ! think i read it was down to locals complaining.

I try not to put down stuff i read as gospel these days because you read contrary articles elsewhere, but the most importance thing is to get back to our own stadium asap.

I think we should look at how the gooners operated soon after their new stadium was operational.

As i remember it took then a few years to recover financially especially when it came to incoming transfers.
Cant see why we should be any different really.

One thing is for certain though ! you can see why levy went for the OS option ?

Its a joke that karren brady moans at extra charges the spams get from the OS.

£2.5 mill per year............FFS.

Why are we incurring costs and not the construction company or whoever is at fault? Surely Levy is fining them for the delay?

I seem to recall when Wembley was delayed the company resonsible was charged something like £1m for every day it was delayed. At that rate well have the stadium paid for before playing a game there :lmao:

It's just such mess and it seems it would only happen to us. How do we get ourselves into these situations :huh:

Delays are more common than projects of this size being delivered on time. Definitely doesn't just happen to us.

I'd imagine we'll be seeking some compensation from whoever is deemed ultimately responsible for the wiring f*** up but that won't happen til after we've got them to deliver the stadium.

Be interesting how it plays out.

It isn't about what would be a fitting game, it's about money. We will play the first game at the new stadium ASAP. If you think sticking it out at Wembley is a good idea, I can only presume you don't actually attend games at Wembley, because it's horrible, and I mean really horrible !!

Think you are in a minority. Sure transport might be better for you but the atmosphere was poor when the fans were still going, now at least half our games are very poorly attended compared to capacity. Be interesting to see how the Chelsea game is tomorrow and United on Sunday.

One chap on the planet spurs Instagram said the new stadium won't be as good as Wembley but I'm not sure what he was smoking tbh.

I guess we can assume that the Newcastle game on 2nd Feb will take place at Wembley. Does anybody know when ticketing details will be published ?

I havenít said itís ideal to stick it out at Wembley but the situation is such a joke. Only been to one game this season and it was the loss to wolves. The atmosphere was terrible and I agree we should move in to the new stadium as soon as we can it just seems there are delays after delays and the uncertainty of it all must affect people at the club. At what point does it not make sense to move into the new stadium? With 5 home games left? 2? 1? I am very much hoping we move in ASAP too.
