I wonder what the rent on Wembley is per match?
The stadium does look pretty finished - to a point where it looks like it could host matches. Exterior cladding is ongoing, but that's largely cosmetic. The seats are in.

The speculation around the safety systems not being up to the job and consequently having to be ripped out and reinstalled from scratch does seem to tally with the lack of visibility even Spurs have on their own completion date. There must be a hell of a lot of re-work, if not re-design.

Just sounds like a monumental fuck up. And a punishingly expensive one.

Regardless, they may have some prettier seats and glass from 2019 onwards but they've been a nothing club my whole life and will continue to be for the rest of it.
I have some sympathy with the view that all games should be played in one stadium, but I don't think they blatantly lied about much myself. The tone of the press releases is a mixture of acute embarrassment, incredulity and cluelessness. And this from what many think to be one of the more clued up chairmen in sport.
Oh I don't know.
