    Sounds quite likely. I suspect though if UEFA had any sense they'd let them off. Obviously funny if they didn't but you'd think common sense would prevail. Then again this is football!

    Article 27.03 of the regulations say:

    "The UEFA administration may grant an exception to a specific structural criterion
    for the stadium category in question in cases of particular hardship and upon
    reasoned request, for instance owing to the current national legislation or if the
    fulfilment of all the required criteria would force the club to play its home
    matches on the territory of another association. An exception can be granted for
    one or more matches in the competition or for the whole duration of the
    competition. Such decisions are final."

    http://www.uefa.org/MultimediaFiles.../Regulations/02/23/69/59/2236959_DOWNLOAD.pdf

    So it looks as though they could apply for an exemption from the regs., which don't actually say that the games must be played in the same stadium. Bugger! :( :D

    I think we can safely rule out WHL, Leyton Orient and Millwall...... Wembley?

    A band 4 row 3 seat. Obviously the lower tier will be closer over the running track.

    Still, that upper tier is quite a distance.

    Not sure if this has been posted before, but worth a look anyway.

    I am glad we get our own proper stadium, but the process that led to West Ham getting the Olympic Stadium virtually rent free, and with most of their match day expenses covered by the tax payers money, has been a disgrace... Hopefully, it will be an investigation in the aftermath of this, by the EU commission (provided no Brexit) or other legal instances.

    Didn't Bayern move out of the Olympic Stadium for similar reasons? Except they are a proper football team!

    To what distance is the lower tier going to cover the running track? That seems a long way away but with most large stadia it could seem far away from an upper tier? Dont get me wrong, Im fully sure this will be an absolute shambles to watch football in but without seeing it fully set up and a game going on its tough to say for sure. Far too much spin and propaganda from the dildo brothers about it at the moment.

    There have probably already been some but are there any accurate comparisons between this ground and other grounds around the country?

    I thought this was common knowledge already and posted a year ago, I didn't know how much they paid but the fact that they bought such a sweet deal so cheaply is a surprise.

    I've always thought Karen Brady getting a peerage was a bit suspect, but this is surely?

    they just keep getting away with it.

    Nearly every peerage is gotten this way.

    If so then it will cost them more than12k to bribe the uefa officials.

    Add to that Brady would have loved showing Chelsea around her ill gotten gains.... remember she is actually a gooner.

    I've seen all those pictures.

    It's ridiculous how much of their 'history' isn't their own history, it's the history of 3 of their players winning the World Cup with England.

    Any club with history might mention it in passing or possibly celebrate it in one bar or box.

    To go on about it the whole time just underlines that the club don't have any history of their own.
