Re: Sunday Supplement

This £214m net spend has been mentioned in quite a few articles this week and again in this apology. What is the actual figure tho? It keeps getting called out as a joke on here yet the press keep reporting it. If you do a quick calculation using the info here: https://www.soccerbase.com/teams/team...

Re: Olympic Stadium Discussion and Questions

... so chose front row seats of east upper, thought they’d be decent with no heads in the way for the little ones which there wasn’t. Unfortunately the two sets of rails at front of upper and back. Of lower meant these seats should be restricted view for 6 & 8 yr olds! They couldn’t see a thing fro...

Re: Olympic Stadium Discussion and Questions

PL rules say Away supporters must have some lower tier provision. Unless you are Newcastle.

Re: Olympic Stadium Discussion and Questions

The Brighton game is the first one with the 60,000 allocation. The general view was that the extra 3000 seats were scattered around the stadium and that the covered seats at the back of the ends behind the goals were the 6000 seats that would eventually take it up to 66,000. But I see they are now s...

Re: Olympic Stadium Discussion and Questions

Pretty sure it was as it always is in Athletics mode. Corners taken out, front rows taken away from the straights and the stands behind the goal pushed back as far as they can go. I think before they moved the West Stand seats back, but this time they've left the bridges in place and just lopped of...

Re: Olympic Stadium Discussion and Questions

Is it impossible to build a stadium where the roof covers everyone without posts to hold it up? Nothing to do with posts. If the rain falls vertically then you should be OK, but if there is any wind it will blow it in. Same at Wembley and many other stadiums. http://www.squawka.com/en/wp-content/up...

Re: Olympic Stadium Discussion and Questions

Only a personal opinion but it's how it reads to me I don't think it matters how it reads to you, me or anyone else here. It's a mess. Take capacity - it says a minimum of 53,500. I think we started with 54,000 and then got it up to 57,000. Brady is saying we should have 60,000 and she wants more t...

Re: David Moyes: should he stay or should he go? [POLL]

I wasn't happy with his appointment at the time, but let's look at some of the stuff he has had to deal with and what he has done: * Got Arnie playing and scoring the goals that kept us up. * Had to play a back 5 because of our lack of defensive midfield cover. * Big improvement in defence at the st...

Re: Taxi for Karren ? Is one due ?

The 2.5 million a year lease either states what capacity it is allowed for or it doesn't. I don't see how the landlord can expect you to pay more if its not in the contract and i can't see how you shouldn't pay more if it is. They aren't at odds over this , they are lying about what the dispute is ...

Re: Olympic Stadium Discussion and Questions

If each row has a depth of 3 ft and the front row is 20 metres from the pitch (for example). What if they keep the back row where it is and made each row have a depth of 5 feet, wouldn't that make the first row a lot closer to the pitch, have the same capacity and not obscure the view from the top ...

Re: Olympic Stadium Discussion and Questions

I may have imagined it, but I'm pretty sure I read on here that someone who either got the figures from a document or may have used Google Maps overlays said the nearest seat to the pitch (or centre spot) in the upper tier at the OS is further away than the furthest seat (West Upper top corner) at ...
