    Freund takes Eurosport on a tour.

    Link

    I should have watched it first, more of an interview than a tour, I think the guy from Eurosport is Tor-Kristian Karlsen

    From that tour...
    I can't get over how impressive it looks, the only place that I've seen that compares is the Ciudad Esportiva de Joan Gamper

    To be fair, Bolton's budget is probably a fair bit lower than ours was.

    The KSS really was interesting (in a boring kinda way :)).
    What I found most interesting was the bit about the recreation/social facilities, and how much consultation they took to make sure it was a used space - i.e. the players actually spent time there - and not a wasted space. Made me wonder just how much the players are socialising together, especially there, and whether that has hadany impact upon the togetherness of the squad, which looks great ATM.

    I remember one of the players saying it was such a fantastic facility they didn't want to leave when they finished training! That has to be a huge benefit to the club in general.

    They could be going here every day :-

    IMO part of the consultation process was to find what type of things players liked doing - and the design an area which was large enough to do all those things (plus a bit more probably) in a way which could be re-used so that if all the table tennis loving players moved, the space could be re-used for something else.

    Its designed to be the ultimate luxury pad for relaxing players - partly to encourage thenm to socialise but also a number of players are not London born and so Spurs would rather provide them with a nice place to spend time than want them to go off with too much time on their hands and too little to do.

    Was going to say there used to some palattes lying around, wasn't there?

    That wee pathway in the bushes sneaking off to the right looks a likely location for a Crack Ho's boudoir for sky-clad assignations - and located in just the right place to attract discerning clientele :)

    I went to the training ground a couple of weeks ago. Very impressive facility, although to be fair, I cannit compare to others as I have not been inside another training facility. I was given a tour by the facilities manager. I have been sworn to secrecy that I should not share any details! Access is not grreat but then the Lodge was down a country lane next to a civic amenity site. Although that's irrelevant anyway haha

    Can't see where the complaints are coming from. It's behind trees. As for increased traffic, welcome to the world.

    It's hardly going to increase traffic that much, it's right by Capel Manor Gardens and one of the largest Jewish cemeteries in London so there is already a relatively high volume traffic on Whitewebbs.
    Environmental impact is also nonsense as you can spit from the training ground and hit the illuminated and always busy M25.
    Last and by no means least, the nimby from Rosemary Avenue (where the quote comes from) is about 3.5 miles from the training ground, you have to drive past a country park to get to the training ground

    Could this be used for Prem B games? It will save using WHL to frequently.

    A 500 seater stadium would have been too small even for some of the Next Gen matches where crowds of 5,000+ were recorded on the continent and here.

    I'd suggest a ground capacity (and therefore stadium seating capacity) of 2,500 - 5.000) rather than 500, allowing larger crowd matches to be held the at the new WHL.

    A 500 seater stadium is welcome at the new Stadium but will need to be enhanced by stands round the other sides of the pitch of at least a similar capacity plus standing room for a number of matches - and a minibus service on match days from the local station would also make sense given there is no local transport to the training ground . Plus of course a gantry to film Spurs TV coverage of Spurs youth matches and transmission of the matches !

    If the suggested under 23 matches are to be held at the training ground......a lot of work needs to be carried out urgently to bring things up to a decent standard
