    New Stadium Details And Discussions

    The point is that while the pictures may be real, what he says about them is not. So when he posts a picture of a cardboard box on the floor and says “there’s no way we will pass a fire test in the next few months”, all we can glean from that is: somewhere, in a room that may or may not be in...

    Really nice picture. I may just be confirming my own expectations, but his caption seems a bit suspicious to me... The more this guy posts, the more I am convinced that he isn't in the stadium at all. He's just getting pictures from someone else as posting them as if they were there.

    New Stadium Details And Discussions

    As far as I am aware, our being allowed to play games at Wembley and NWHL in the same season is at the disgression of the Premier League. We’ve already fucked around enough with changing fixture dates and venues. I very much doubt it would be looked upon kindly if we voluntarily decided to...

    And none of those things depend on having the first game against Man U. You have absolutely idea what the actual financial value is of having the first game against Man U. Is it £1m, £10m, £100m? Do you even have a vague estimate. If not, all your points are irrelevant. You give the bernabeu...

    All this is meaningless unless you can quantify the additional marketing value of having the first game be against Man U rather than Burnley. (I would imagine that it is negative value - I’m sure having an actual stadium up and running, functioning is a lot better publicity than having the first...

    I’m stunned by the number of people that think it is plausible that Levy/Tottenham would keep a finished stadium closed for over a month while waiting for a televised game for the first match. Even ignoring financial consideration (and financial considerations alone are more than enough) and...

    Player Watch Player Watch: Harry Winks

    Though I don't like to say it, the player whose style Winks reminds me of most is probably Jack Wilshere.

    I believe that the human eye is much better than most cameras at seeing things where there is a large contrast between the bright and dim areas (see this link, for example...

    I would imagine that for 2 tier stands, each individual tier is less steep than a single tier, but that the total gradient from the back of the top tier to the front of the bottom tier is significantly steeper (because the tiers overlap or have a vertical section). So the pitch needs to be...

    This head and heart line has disingenuous bullshit written all over it. (I’m not saying he didn’t say it, just that if he did it’s BS). Why on earth would his heart say March? We’re not going to move into the stadium with just a couple of games left, so it doesn’t matter whether it’s March or...

    Arsenal

    My favourite bit is when he says the doll sings “in my own voice”. Then it starts singing in a weird high pitched squeak, like a gang of chipmunks. And Mhikitarian just starts singing over it himself, as though maybe no one will notice.

    What our opponents' fans are saying about us 17/18

    It’s weird, because the typical football fan delusion is to think that your team is special and the whole rest of the world is blind to it. Liverpool fans are doubly deluded in that they think their team is special and that the whole world agrees with them. They probably think Madrid is full...

    What our opponents' fans are saying about us 17/18

    Is “mix it” a euphemism for lose? Remember when Liverpool mixed it 4-1 with us earlier this season. I can’t wait until Liverpool get over their insane obsession with us. It’s like we have inadvertently contradicted a cult or society of conspiracy theorists and they won’t let it go. I feel like...
