Wow. After all the club's effort to hike prices for our season tickets for the 'Stadium experience' and all that jazz, I wonder what compensation is coming our way for the 'inferior' wembley experience. I'd say a free cup game but that screws over the 1882ers. Money off next season? Who knows.


That's if this is all true.

Didn't think we could play at 2 venues in a season, so it's either WHL or Wembley surely?

I'll be really p*ssed off it's Wembley.

widely believed that we are getting special treatment as agreed by other clubs. (because they will all want the same treatment when they eventually do their stadiums too so nobody would be against this).

Personally I don’t believe it till it’s confirmed. Far more likely to be us asking for permission to use Wembley should anything bad happen during test events.

If we’d suddenly fallen massively behind schedule I’m sure we’d have heard before now.

Can’t see the FA allowing it, a run if away games makes more sense to me.

This makes no sense to me, we have to be ready for the CL and NFL games which commence mid September I think? Would be very embarrassing for the club if those deadlines were not met. Sounds like those on site need to get their arses in gear.

I do believe we have asked to play 1 at Wembley or 4 away games. The thing is surely they could allow a postponement of the 4th game if needed. If an English team was to win the CL due to that world club comp fixtures have to be postponed

Says in the T&Cs that they can’t guarentee where the fixtures will be held

It is all explained on the Spurs website- Fulham at Wembley, testing days for new stadium and then Liverpool first home game at the new WHL.

We're getting 1/19th back into our e-ticket account as credit to use however we feel fit.

Although I believe it can't be withdrawn as actual money.

It would be so like us to win the league next season, and then for all the pundits and opposition fans to put an asterisk over it because we played at two venues. "Yeah, but what have you won in one venue continuously over a whole season?"

Was really annoyed at first. After calming down, it's not so bad.

However the club made it clear this is Poch's and his team's decision. So if you back them, you have to back the decision I guess.

A 100% refund for the game is far more than any of us expected. The money can be used against cup games or renewal next season.

Not brilliant, but you have to be support management/team with whatever the believe is best.
