    looks like they are installing the type of pitch we played on against Young Boys. Great if true. Isnt the only other one in the country at Liverpool's training complex?

    Hahaha yeah, if you look closely here you can see the old scouse trick of distracting the driver and the rear hub caps being lifted! :razz:

    The Spurs Odyssey report of the youth team today mentions that was the last one to be played at Spurs LOdge and they move to Bulls Cross next month:-

    This was the last Academy game at the Lodge as the move to Bulls Cross takes place next month.

    No diving board either, are we cutting off Bale's lessons?

    Once they get into Bulls Cross I'm sure not one fuck will be given by the players! :D

    Apparently it's all been a waste of time and QPR are about to outdo us.

    Well, that claim to fame was never gonna last very long, anyway...I am sure they have sown a keen interest in our training complex.

    How long before it is open for business?

    Previous info in the thread suggested May/June, but guess it depends on the builders as to when its finally complete.

    However suspect that parts will be in use fairly shortly (even if the final parts - likely to be semi cosmetic - are not finished) as Spurs have taken the decision to say that the last trainng seesion at Spurs Lodge has happened, yet players will still need training facilities to keep fit for those involved in international matches, injury treatment rooms and even preparation for youth tournaments (eg there is an under 19 tournament at end of May to prepare for). IMO forget a grand opening, parts will be in use pretty much now, and the last pieces done maybe in a month or so.

    However QPR say they are about to start the design work - so given it took Spurs 3 years to go from design through the plannning process and then build it (with £45m or so), guess we will not know if its as good as ours for some time. May not be quite right to say 'about to outdo us' ! :)

    Sorry, you've misread: we were dicsussing Fulham's proposed new training complex which they claim will be state-or-the-art, adn when that (Fulahm's new trianing complex) would be open for business, and not our one (which, as I understand, should pretty much be operational this Summer).

    ...strictly speaking the word 'it' refers to the last noun, which was the Spurs training ground :) but I realised the issue and posted a second answer too. !
