    I heard someone say today that the median age of fans at the stadium is now 47, compared to 17 in 1970.

    I think that ageing process explains the gradual decline in atmosphere

    And the increased amount of 'old man yells at cloud' crankiness.

    Looks like we’ll finally have new trains by end of 2019.

    Can’t believe they’ve not even touched the old part of the platform to even give it a lick of paint! Work shy C’s!

    Does this mean we can put Geoff Marshall in the Famous Spurs Fans thread now?

    Isn't this basically every game they run out of beer or food in one area, how have they not managed to get this sorted out by now.

    What happened to them renaming it? Video mentions a consultation - I heard they wanted a few million for it and then the convo died.

    FWIW some friends of mine went to the NFL game and said the stadium was absolutely incredibly amazingly [etc etc] awesome.

    I noticed on video there was a huge light-show before the game, images projected onto the pitch with our state of the art lighting display.

    I thought this sort of thing was going to be done before the footy [soccer] but to my knowledge it hasn't happened yet.




    I agree with those that cannot believe we run out of beer. It is a licence to print money, yet we literally cannot organise a p155-up in a brewery. All that bragging about our innovative beer delivery system which can dispense a billion pints per second... yet there are huge queues and they run out!

    They should have one queue for each beer and just keep pouring incessantly - rather than asking each punter what they want, just keep pouring and each person grabs a pint or 3 when they get to the front of the queue and taps their card. So easy to organise, so easy!

    Don't worry about complex orders of non-beer, those people can go elsewhere down in the dungeons.

    This was the first NFL event - not surprising we ran out of beer as the games last longer and you can drink in the seats during play so a different beast to our game.

    Read a comment from somewhere saying it was the most beer/alcohol sold at a sports event in Europe, ever - so not sure you be too harsh on them.


    Personally hope we don't see light shows or any of that sort of razzmatazz at our matches, not inkeeping with the game here - good to see we have the means to do so for other events though

    I'm heading to New White Hart Lane today for the first time. Excited! Some NFL-following mates decided to go and I'm tagging along. Can't stand the game but I don't care.

    Hopefully I'll be able to make it down for an actual Spurs game later this season.

    Yep! Panthers vs Buccaneers, apparently.

    Turns out that one of the guys is ill so we've got a spare ticket. Face value £85(!), will happily take £30. If anyone's interested, PM me.

    Saw a bit of the NFL show and they were so complimentary of our stadium. The NFL commissioner loved it and was already talking about getting a lot more games played here, and they were even discussing play off games there too! Imagine the Super Bowl being played at our home:D

    Levy really is a genius....

    fudging hell, hark at ‘little lord Fauntleroy’ here! Proper man of the people.
    Might be better off not mixing with the common folk, and just getting a Fortum & Masons hamper delivered to a corporate box at Old Trafford.
