Good day to all. I hope you are all bearing up to the lockdown? We all miss the football, but as I have said before, the absence of football hopefully will benefit our injured players (that they will get back to fitness by the time we restart). Don Scully has just written a piece on his assessment of the new stadium. Even though it is an exceptional money-making tool, will it benefit the club, and if so, in what way? How long until we start to see the rewards on the field? Be safe, Glenn.
Extracts from Don Scully’s article.
Has the Tottenham stadium lived up to expectations?
That depends on who you ask. Tottenham has one of the best stadiums in the world. Its new state of the art stadium is an architectural masterpiece.
Once we moved into the new stadium, the prices went up, at the same time their waiting list increased (both in season tickets and the Premium area). But as long as there is a waiting list Daniel Levy will not worry about any dissatisfaction about overpricing. Nevertheless, what niggles fans is that even though we have a great stadium, we have a mediocre team to go with it; nearly the bride’s maid, never the bride. Many see Daniel Levy’s penny pinching, where the team is concerned, is because he is focusing on other areas; such as American football, concerts, boxing etc.
Even though the stadium is much bigger than the old one, some complain that the atmosphere hasn’t been comparable to WHL. Some have pointed the finger at the number of tourists that it attracts. Some have even argued that that isn’t surprising (atmosphere) as the fans haven’t got anything really to shout about (on the field). Maybe that will change, but one thing is for sure; the old stadium is no longer, it is a dead parrot, now we must move on and make the new stadium our home.
