    as prices rose so did the average age of the fans, added to that a change from your men to more families and the fact you are not free to move around the stadium so singers could group together this would be my guess for a lower energy crowd.

    I went to Nou Camp in a semi against Milan that they won (were down in the first leg) and other than a few songs that they all sang that had no relation to the game being played it was crap. Other than a few games a year most of S American games (incuding the ones I went to) were shocking, one man and their dog. The fallacy of Brazilian fans, they only turn up for big games, MLS has a higher average attendance.

    The atmosphere will settle down. There are lots of new fans who have recently got a season ticket. Almost all are up for a sing song, and want a fantastic atmosphere. It is harder in a big stadium to get chants going.

    One thing: the club put the Shelf and Paxon songs up in the bars. And they have been sung at every game. There has to be a way to get songs into fans consciousness, and then in time, each area of the stadium will have loud fukers who start songs. But at the moment we are limited to the classic COS, Oh when the Spurs, Yids and Dele songs. It's not a bad lot of songs, but there are more songs, and we should sticky any good new ones on here. Was sad that Eriksen didn't hear his song in the new stadium, while Alli had his sung multiple times a game.

    Re first bolded part : not sure what you mean by this?

    Re Eriksen- his song was definitely sung when he scored against Everton, and I'm sure it has been before then although maybe not so whole-heartedly.

    In addition to the ones you mention there have regularly been Super Tottenham from the Lane; We are the Tottenham; Tottenham Boys; the Rsol songs (unfortunately); Glory Glory, occasionally;
    Toby/Jan song; and I'm sure one or two others.
    Maybe it's just pockets singing so it's not resonating. I think it needs the South Stand to get anything going around the whole ground.

    In some of the bars I think I saw "We're paxon...we're paxton Tottenham" (or shelf side) on the walls. I didn't hear Eriksen's song sadly, good that it was sung. I think that's it, outside the south stand most fans only know the main songs.

    Not really had to consider this before, but given the recent news on us being given the away dressing room for the CL final, the home and away ends look very similar - how would it work if new WHL was used for a European Cup final - Which team would be given the single tier, if tickets are distributed on a 50/50 (25/25;)) basis?

    If you reach under your seat you should find the club has provided (for emergencies only) a dose of manning the fudge up.

    It's right next to the bandage labelled #snitchesgetstiches

    Premier League clubs 'fail to cash in on stadium rights'

    Premier League football clubs are missing out on millions of pounds in stadium naming rights, a report says.

    Financial advisors Duff & Phelps say "clubs are not utilising naming rights revenue to their full potential".

    Only 30% of top flight teams have a stadium sponsor, compared with more than 80% in American football's NFL.

    The six 2018-19 season teams with a stadium sponsor were Bournemouth, Arsenal, Brighton, Huddersfield Town, Leicester City and Emirates Marketing Project.

    Of these, the report says that only Bournemouth and Huddersfield have stadium deals that are independent of their shirt sponsor and owner.

    Newcastle United have also previously had a naming rights deal, which lasted just one year.

    'Courageous'
    The potential value of Premier League stadium sponsorship deals increased by 5% from £135.5m in 2018 to £142.0m in 2019, according to the report.

    It estimates the most valuable stadium asset to be Manchester United's Old Trafford ground, worth a potential £26.75m a season to the club.

    The current so-called Big Six clubs dominate in terms of value, which is based on things like shirt sponsor and technical partner values, social media followers, TV rights, transfer spending and team performance.

    • Manchester United - £26.75m
    • Emirates Marketing Project - £21.90m
    • Tottenham Hotspur - £17.50m
    • Liverpool - £16.90m
    • Chelsea - £16.75m
    • Arsenal - £16.65m
    • West Ham - £5.55m
    • Newcastle United - £3.90m
    • Everton - £3.30m
    • Leicester City - £3.20m

    The report also suggests that Liverpool have added significant value to the value of Anfield ground in the past year, thanks to their Champions League and Premier League exploits.

    "Multimillion-pound Premier League shirt sponsorships have been signed, multimillion-pound sleeve sponsorships are being signed, and it is only a matter of time until multimillion-pound stadium sponsorship follows," says Michael Weaver, managing director at Duff & Phelps.

    "Brands just have to be courageous enough to take the first step which will bring the market alive."

    'Ticket prices'
    But long-term Liverpool fan Joe Blott said any benefits that might come from a rights deal must also be used to benefit fans and not just boost club coffers.

    "The Premier League is already awash with sponsorship," he says.

    "I understand that clubs might have to look at other sponsor options, but if they did go down that route they should look at the whole club family - not just using money to buy players, but also to drive down ticket prices. "

    He added: "I, and many others fans I think, would always continue to refer to grounds as Anfield, Goodison, Old Trafford, even if deals were done."

    Dallas deal
    In the US, 26 of the 32 teams in the NFL are capitalising on the branding potential of their sporting arenas.

    The finance industry is the largest industry sponsor, sponsoring a quarter of named stadiums.

    The NFL's most valuable contract is between the Dallas Cowboys and AT&T, which is worth £14.3m per season. The average stadium naming rights agreement is £6m per season.

    Meanwhile, European football's most mature naming rights market is in Germany, where 80% of stadiums are sponsored.

    By way of contrast, only 17%, or three teams, from Italy's top flight have a stadium naming sponsor.

    From what I saw the other day that £17.5m would basically service the loan facility on the stadium build (estimated at around £20m a year)
