    While I'm sure there's still a lot to be done that doesn't mean it won't be ready for Newcastle. We're talking about the difference between being ready and being finished. I doubt it will be finished until next season. Even then the project around the ground will take a few more years. Great...

    I thought the contract ended and we pay by game now

    So it may be later that week or the following week. What it does mean is that it could well be ready at that point which I think JJetset was alluding too by saying the stadium will be ready in Jan. The timing of it just makes it impossible to announce the Utd game.

    Maybe, it would certainly make sense. I'm not sure Levy would mention 7th Jan if he wasn't confident. He's basically confirming we'll announce the opening on the 7th Jan without officially doing so (to protect himself). Also Poch said that Levy had some good news for him recently. I would not...

    Who knows whether the story is true. Although given that membership packs and ST packs dont get sent at one time it's not implausible. I honestly believe the club are sure it will pass the final tests by Jan 7th. They're just not officially announcing it until then given the delays last time...

    The way I see it. The familiarity event is 6k I think. The 2nd will be larger and then the 3rd larger still before the 4th being the opening game. So basically they're testing piece by piece and making adjustments at each step. It's like Rob building a server for this place, opening to a small...

    That could also be possible because would give about 2 and half weeks notice (well it's just under 3 really) It would also explain why they didn't announce Watford yet. Maybe if we end up with a home tie in the FA Cup we would have that as the opener, then we can play midweek against Watford...

    Why would we need to give more notice than 3 and half weeks? (just under 4 really) It's only Newcastle they're travelling from. The Utd game was pushed back for that very reason because that's only a weeks notice. Personally I think it will pass on the 7th and be ready for Utd, but the short...

    Nou Camp is very dated now. The plans they have for the Nou Camp Nou as part of the Espai Barça project are impressive though.

    Agreed. I think more likely that they've been drawn up in anticipation so they're ready to send out if the tests have passed. I doubt they'll have been sent out yet.

    I dont know why you're comparing Nou Camp to a brand new stadium opening. We're talking about a new stadium with new layout and 60k fans new to it, not just the away fans. It's not like we're suggesting the new ground will never be ready for midweek games, we're simply talking about the first...

    By the way it's not only our fans we have to think about either. It's also the away fans who need to be prepared for a stadium they haven't even been following. They're also sitting in the opposite end of the ground now too so need to know where to go. There's a reason the familiarisation event...

    Seriously? You do know most people work during the week? You do know that national trains only run so late in the evening? Most people will be completely new to the gangways etc around the ground, there's going to be a hell of a lot more people visiting the ground than before. People will need...

    I disagree, I can't see the first game being midweek with no real certainty over how the travel network will operate. Why are people not mentioning Watford do you think? They've always mentioned Man Utd or Newcastle as the first game.

    No chance the first game is midweek, it will open at the weekend. In fact I would say it's better if it opens against Newcastle, followed by Leicester and then maybe a big CL fixture as the 3rd game. It would give us the chance to ensure that everything is set up and perfect for a massive...
