    Haven’t we already paid £300M for the new stadium over the last few years?

    Match Threads Brighton & Hove Albion vs Tottenham Hotspur - Match Thread

    What a crap perfromance. Wrong team. Happy to play squad players, but don't pick Wanyama and Sissoko in CM. Kane clearly not fit and playing for himself. Pathetic, no urgency, no collective pressing. Really disappointed.

    Not really. In context I was tongue in cheek saying that I was more concerned about something that is nothing to worry about than the retractable pitch being shit.

    New Stadium Details And Discussions

    I am more concerned that the weight of the pitch trays (especially when sodden), combined with the weight of the tracks and the underlying concrete base to the american football pitch, will be too much for the foundations and it will all fall in on the underground car park and facilities room...

    We need to take it to them big time - 100% aggressive pressing and smash them into next week.

    Race for the Top 4 - 2017/18

    In the past I think Abramovich has 'lent' Chelsea £500M, which funded a very successful decade (when £100k per week was top drawer and top players cost £30-40M). I imagine it is a lot harder for Abramovich to move personal funds around in the current era, and that the amounts would need to be...

    Good point. But think it's just 5th and 6th and not 7th.

    Race for the Top 4 - 2017/18

    If they attract a top manager, give him £150M-£200M to spend, and have no Europe next year (Arsenal look like they could finish above Chelsea now) then they could easily repeat what they did in Conte's first season. Losing Hazard would be a big blow though, and their squad is much weaker due to...

    Player Watch Player Watch: Hugo Lloris

    Hugo has been one of our most important players under Poch, our captain, and (definitely at the start) our primary world class player. However, as we have dominated games more, and he has had less to do, he has started to make an increasing number of mistakes. This season he has made 5 mistakes...

    Not so much anything Verts did, more that their CF is the worst footballer I have ever seen in the top flight!
