    If we run from Wembley now, what does that say to the players when we have to go there for semis and finals?

    It is vital the Park Lane fans are grouped together at Wembley. The CL atmosphere was ok but where I was today in block 119 was jumping.

    We out-sung the chavs both in and outside the stadium. They really are a s*** club with s*** fans.

    I hate Wembley - awful to get out of, horrible atmosphere, fans too far away from the pitch - but for the love of God, we can't keep blaming a stadium for our defeats. We played brilliantly today.

    The wembley-jinx or whatever is bull, and we just have to get over it. That being said, I hope we get to have our groundsmen do the pitch. The turf is shit, which was extremely clear today. For the first 30 minutes almost every pass went short or was intercepted due to the slow pitch. Which is fine if you try to play negative football (national squad, Im looking at you), but crap if you want to pass the ball.

    If we play our games at Wembley we'll finish midtable. Look at our record there.

    Wembley is a neutral stadium and it will not change this status just because we have more fans in there. We played very well today and arguably deserved to win but that was a cup semi final on a neutral ground. I think the fact that we have been so brilliant at WHL this season is making the move to Wembley seem even more of a disaster waiting to happen then any of us realised. I've said before it will be the effect on the away team's mentality which will be the problem and there is little we can do about that, especially the lesser teams who dread a trip to WHL but will see the trip to Wembley as something a bit different, lets go there and have a go type of attitude.

    Despite annoyance at losing today I'm weirdly less worried about playing there next season.
    We just outplayed and dominated a team who will most likely win the league. If we play like we did today we'll comfortably beat 3/4 of the PL teams.
    Against the top 6 teams we'll need to cut out the silly defensive errors as the pressure will be higher. Actually think we'll be more than ok there next season.

    Be nice if fixtures are kind and can get a few wins under belt before play a top 6 team though. Hate the word Spursy but would be quite spursy to win the league not even playing in Tottenham.

    We lost 4-2! We did not play brilliantly! Can u imagine Chelsea fans losing 4-2 and saying wow we played so well today. We made mistake after mistake. The fans need a winning mentality as well as the players

    You can play well and still lose.

    We did not play well for the conditions today. We were unlucky a bit - but we will need to change tactics a bit when we move from WHL. We have left ourselves vulnerable to the long-ball counter-attack on the larger pitch.

    The new stadium will have pitch dimensions similar, if not exact, to Wembley. So, we need to play there next season. Figure out the right tactics. And win.

    Yep - we'd monster most PL sides playing like we did for the first 70-odd minutes today.
    I was up in block 513 (right above the screen) and literally didn't hear their fans until it was 4-2. Pathetic.

    Depends on whether we can bring our groundsmen with us, after all they've got bugger all else to do if we don't. I thought during the CL matches, and Danny Murphy said the same in commentary, that the Wembley turf is much slower and softer than WHL. Watch the match and count how many passes were under hit.

    Is that true though ? I thought Levy had asked for an extension in time to the end of the month before committing.....

    Yeah, typical Tottenham eh!? Only going and bloody winning the league

    Not sure you've quite understood the term. Winning the league (no matter where) is surely about the least Spursy thing that could possibly happen!

    I remember the days before they were financed up the ying yang, and were an actual football club, Chelsea fans would critically appreciate how they played whatever the result. It's what football fans do! They could afford to have Hazard, Costa and Fabregas as subs yesterday.

    They had the option of starting Willian and Bats. Get some f...ing perspective! We're clawing our way back, and we're doing it the right way. Sure we made mistakes, but we're getting closer these days with far more limited resources. Get behind your team!

    Also, think we should go with Wembley next season. Get used to playing there for home games, get that silly monkey off our backs, and get acclimatized for the big games we have to play there. It may be an advantage for the team going forward.

    Here's our record this season against quality opposition away from White Hart Lane in road or neutral venue fixtures:

    Everton-Draw

    West Brom-Draw

    Liverpool (Carling Cup)-Loss

    Arsenal-Draw

    Monaco-Loss

    Chelsea-Loss

    Manchester United-Loss

    Manchester City-Draw

    Liverpool-Loss

    Gent-Loss

    Leverkusen-Draw

    Chelsea (FA Cup)-Loss

    This is much more than a Wembley issue (though I could've added two more losses to Leverkusen and Monaco at Wembley to the above list). We simply struggle against good teams outside of White Hart Lane. Whether that's a tactical issue, a squad depth issue, or something else, it's been a major hinderance keeping this team from achieving trophies the last two seasons when they've been one of the best first XI's in all of Europe.
