Me no like chicken badge!!!
It`s the anatomy of a cockerel. It`s me trying to say look, I live and breathe Spurs. I am Spurs until my final moment in this world. To use the old, worn out cliche` "cut me open and I will bleed cockerel blood". It doesn`t mean I support ENIC but it does mean I`ll support THFC long after they`ve gone.

We, or rather ENIC, are not building anything yet. Remember, they are an investment company. They're all about making money. If the cost of building the stadium outweighs the profit of any future sale of the club they won't build. Simple as that. I have reason to believe that current construction costs would indeed negate any future sale. Which is why any small delay or hold up is actually a Godsend for them, giving them more time to either a) Scratt around trying find alternative partners OR b) actively pursue a potential buyer for the club BEFORE construction begins. One way or another I am not convinced they are moving heaven and earth to get this thing completed. In other words, the long turn success of the club and the interests of the fans are not among their main priorities
As I 'm sure you know a club with a nice bright shiny stadium with a bigger capacity in an area which is being massively regenerated puts the price of the club up massively, so to have the build cost largely defrayed by a stadium naming deal means the net cost of building the stadium is way less than the increase in the value of the club.

So if an investment company such as ENIC can find a stadium naming rights deal which covers much of the cost of building then your argument goes out of the window - no ?


And if ENIC/Spurs do a deal with Archway agreeing a £ deal to buy the site and agree a date to take posession later this year, the it removes a potential reason for delay. Does that undermine your argument too ? Oh wait a moment !

SI, he's a troll. There's no point in arguing with him as his only goal is to wind people up. His only posts since he has joined have been either slagging off Levy or saying we are not building the stadium. He doesn't support Spurs.

Having followed Cornelius's posts for the past year or so, I find him to be one of the most passionate outspoken fans on here. To suggest he does not support Spurs is both patronising and very childish.

What if we suggested he was patronising and very childish?
