Its the reddest red card since Reddy McRederson got given a straight red playing for the reds in the red derby.

Nope, 4 points behind will be utterly fantastic

It's redder than Wayne Rooney's face after the short walk from his car to the training ground.

Could do with these cunts upping their performance levels for Monday, last few times they’ve played City they’ve been outclassed and resorted to kicking which is a common theme with these ever since Chelsea away from their famous “put the pressure on Leicester”, 3rd in a 2 horse race season.

Indeed

Shame they're doing so well in the league.

Once they've got the bulk of the stadium paid off, they should be a real threat I reckon, so long may the fuck up continue.

That said it looks like they're in a short term financial pickle.

I'm pretty sure Levy is more financially astute than me but that is a lot of debt to burden a club with. They've already made insufficient signings and i could see that continuing. It'd be interesting if that led to a lack of CL football and had a Leeds effect.

Looking at the NFL game atm, the pitch is looking in a terrible state already.

Not ideal for tomorrow.

Strange comments. Real Madrid calling?

Quote:
"Many things happened that make myself not in my best mood," said Pochettino.

"The season so far, it's strange because my feeling is the worst I've had in the five years that I've been here," he added. "But it's the best start ever for the club in the Premier League. It's strange, no?

"It's so difficult to explain because many things happen, I am disappointed we are still waiting for the new stadium when the expectation was to be there at the beginning of the season.

"I know I always have a good relationship with the media but my feeling is not the best feeling, I had a better feeling in previous seasons."

Reading between the lines, sounds like he's pissed off about the stadium, and not being able to buy players.

Ouch. I can see Kane leaving in the summer for about 200m or Delle Alli but what if they get injured and CL football is missed. And Potch goes. Either way i can't see big transfers there for a good while yet.

I'm guessing this is down to the stadium deadline being missed. I wouldn't be surprised to see legal action against whoever fucked that one up.

It is getting a bit farcical now. They've not just missed the deadline, they are nowhere near it, and still no announcement of a 'move in' date... which suggests a lack of confidence in when that day may actually be.

I wonder what the rent on Wembley is per match?

They should be made to play at Wembley all season, they've quite blatantly lied about the whole stadium stuff. And didn't Scuadmore once say you can't play like 10 games at one venue then 9 at another?

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.

In better news for them they just signed Alli to a five year deal at 90k a week. That'll secure plenty of time to strip thay asset.

That seems a pretty low wage by footballs standard in this current market

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.

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.

I believe they haven't sold all the exec boxes and corporate take up leading them to discount which after being made public makes them discount the initial sales. Project is circa around GBP1b so expect the debt to increase further.

Most contractors insure themselves for delays, and contract pricing will allow for delay payments to Spuds but i doubt it would be anywhere near tens of millions.

Tottenham stadium: Spurs granted extension to stay at Wembley

Spurs were due to move into their new White Hart Lane stadium in September but the project has suffered a number of construction delays.

The club initially agreed to continue playing at Wembley until the end of the year.

They can now play there indefinitely but with a reduced capacity of 51,000.

A planning application to Brent Council is required to increase the capacity to 62,000 with "additional limited exceptions" at 90,000.

The council had granted special dispensation to allow Tottenham to play the entire 2017-18 season at Wembley at full capacity.

The club had hoped to be in their new 62,062-seater stadium by the start of the current campaign. During the summer, this was changed to the 15 September meeting with Liverpool.

Just over a month before that game, Tottenham said that because of "issues with the critical safety systems" their move had been delayed. On 26 October, they confirmed all remaining games in 2018 would be played at Wembley, with chairman Daniel Levy saying it was still not possible to "confirm an exact opening date and fixture".

Tottenham warned over Champions League stadium advert
Now that deadline has been extended indefinitely, with the stadium not expected to open until January 2019 at the earliest. The club say they will provide a further update on the stadium's progress in December.

Tottenham's next match at Wembley is against Chelsea in the Premier League on Saturday, November 24. That will be the final game, pending any further appeal to Brent Council, that Spurs will be allowed to use the stadium at its full capacity.
