    Yes, that's the rumour doing the rounds. Sounds likely too. I hope so. It would be great to be the first team to win at the new White Hat Lane stadium.

    Official announcement was announced as "Week beginning Monday 31st December" So yeah any day now but personally i'll only trust it if it's coming from Spurs themselves.

    Probably prefer to be a club like us making the first trip as guinea pigs because we are nice friendly fans but local enough to bring a good amount rather than Chelsea or Arsenal for example who could cause issues.

    They've had people going to the ground already so surely must almost be ready...

    We should refuse to play there and insist on going to Milton Keynes instead.

    They still have to play 2 test events there with capacity over 60% and have their safety book produced. Only then will they get their safety certificate - personally will be surprised if they know who their first game will be against yet, let alone have a press release lined up announcing it.

    If I had to bet, I don’t think they’ll be in until next season as it just makes far more logistical sense now.

    My bad it is week commencing 7th Jan that Spurs said they will be getting "a status report from our contractors" https://www.tottenhamhotspur.com/news/2018/december/stadium-update-december-2018/

    You're probably right that is too late for our game and might well drag out a lot further.
    The test events don't have to be games though.. just get people in the stadium. Training session for example.

    Rumours doing the rounds that we may be playing this game on the Moon.

    Can't get the safety certificate apparently.. plus the pitch is too bumpy.

    Mars a possibility.

    The trouble with playing on Mars is that it lacks atmosphere.

    Mars? At least the drive to Slough is not too bad compared to travelling to Bruce Grove.

    I think he's right, just because Spurs are the tail being allowed to wag the dog in this case, but what's the disadvantage to Cardiff if their relegation rivals have to go to the new stadium instead?

    There are some Watford fans still trying to get out the car parks there from the Cup game.....

    About time Spurs sorted themselves out. When are they announcing where the Watford game will be held. Brighton away tickets already up for sale!
  19. Things are improving though - the Chinese have just installed floodlights on the dark side up there.

    Spuds said they'd announce it this week. It'll almost certainly be Wembley.

    The Wembley novelty might wear off come May, with three appearances in just 4 months!!

    They're just an embarrassment now - people (me!) have plans to make.

    I was fumbling towards exactly this point.

    But then started humming the Floyd tune & got distracted.
  24. At Wembley, just announced.

    I heard they didn't want Watford as the first opposition in their spanking new ground. They didn't want to start off with a defeat against a tin pot side getting the double over them.

    I never watch cooking shows.

    However, I walked in on the wife watching Floyd last week & it was tremendous stuff.

    Got outside most of a bottle of Rioja within 10 mins.

    A bit gutted as was hoping to get to this fixture. There again i haven't seen us play at the new Wembley so it will be a first.

    At this rate we still might the first visitors to Spurs new stadium though.. next season!

    Don't worry, no-one has seen us play at the new Wembley.

    Meaning i will be there to see our first ever performance and victory at the new national stadium.

    Added to witnessing victories at the old stadium and the Millennium it has a nice ring to it.

    Can't beat the traditional type.

    Old school porn is the Ed Moses of porn, cheffery merely the David Hemery.
