    LOL. There it is again. Anything that raises the atmosphere at the stadium get labelled small time. The atmosphere at games in the PL has steadily declined in recent years. Everyone lauds the great atmosphere at PL games, but this is a myth. It's getting quiteter, and less and less of a spectable.

    You get them mainly draped over sections
    I’ve never been at a Game where we have actively waved flags

    Guess it doesn’t where you sit. What end is your seat in?

    Flags don't raise an atmosphere though - they look impressive (to some) watching on tv

    Seems you and i are using different terminology to one another, going by your response to Bedford. Waived flags on poles, no - spurs/england flags draped over the hoardings/seats yes

    Regeneration scheme by haringey council and lendlease, opposed by tottenham. Be nice if spurs web got it right for a change.

    They just regurgitate news which is fine. But adding a comment which is the opposite of the article they are linking is bad form. Either laziness or agenda driven.

    They consistently Tweet inaccurate and misleading headlines to generate clicks and are very slow to correct it when pointed out. I have also seen them steal content and refuse to credit the original author when asked.

    Useful of you are planning a holiday that doesnt clash with our home games - we'll therefore definitely be away on the 2nd and 9th October so therefore almost certainly at home the week before (25th Sept) and weekend after (16 October) - remember that there are no international breaks between the start of the season and the world cup in November :D

    It doesn't guarantee we'll be away on those dates, could be played on the Friday, Saturday or Monday.

    We'll defo be away - it takes more than 24 hours to convert the stadium to/from an NFL setting and TV companies wont be dictated to around kick offs. We will have asked PL for permission to play away on these two weekends and seemingly this has been granted.

    There's no converting the stadium. The only thing is bringing the pitch back in and that takes about 30 mins.

    I’m pretty sure that it takes a few days for the joins to bind back together. I think an NFL game could follow a few hours after a football match but not the other way round.

    There's no binding back according to anything I've read, 30 mins conversion either way.

    Anyway, this would be going from football on a Friday/Saturday, no prob playing NFL then on a Sunday.
    They've even talked previously about doing a double header on the same day.

    I think that was just marketing speak during the stadium build. They might look to do events closer together in the future but I cannot see it next season. The logistics go a lot further than switching pitches and the operation for an NFL game is a lot bigger than it is for PL football and has a bigger impact on the local community.
