Could someone point me to something official from the club stating that ST holders member packs are soon to be sent out please? I can’t find this info anywhere other than in allygold’s q&a and the indie article, and I’ve been emails nothing.

There was someone on Twitter a few hours ago who posted a photo of their pack.


You can also see the bloke’s foot in the photo, in case you’re into that sort of thing.

You should have had an email from the club

Had an email yesterday saying the pack had left the warehouse and received the pack today

FAVS (force air vacuum system) helps the roots breathe by sucking or blowing air through the pitch.
I guess it can finely adjust the moisture content too, but I don't think drainage is going to be a big problem, as there is a big void at the bottom of the trays - even if there was a flash flood, it would all drop through quickly enough.
It all sounds a bit gimmicky to me, but if there is air above and below the pitch, that alone has to help the grass roots breathe, and future planning for a more erratic climate seems good thinking.
Liverpool installed something similar and their pitch has looked OK. (Although they relaid the pitch this summer).

It gets filtered then goes to the micro Brewery!:whistle:

Not sure we can read too much into the TV picks - matches against Liverpool / Chelsea / Man U etc are almost always live on TV. If the stadium can open before the 13th Jan I think it will.

From weretheshelfside on Skyscrapercity re the direction of Cockerell in response to an email to D Cullen:

Cockerel orientation confirmed by Spurs and my 'left flank facing the playing surface' theory is now up in row Z


The PR manager just emailed me the response below. No real surprise (as FIFA game showed this, and I'm certain they wouldn't have unless sanctioned by the club).

"Your below email has been passed onto me and thank you for enquiring on this subject as it is extremely important to us that we are recognising our heritage throughout our new stadium in the correct way, and as such appreciate any input from our supporters.
Indeed, the original Cockerel that sat on top of the East Stand at White Hart Lane traditionally faced North – therefore, we have ensured that our new scaled-up replica of the original, that will sit on top of the South Stand, also faces North as you have seen in the FIFA game.
Interestingly, when the original Cockerel on the East Stand was replaced during the late 80s/early 90s, it was initially positioned facing the other way towards central London but was soon reverted back to the direction in which it originally faced.
Should you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to ask.
