I am not interested in whether Spurs have 1, 2 or even 10,000 more seats than us.

what they have got right though is the design of that new stadium of theirs. they have apparently got a 17,500 stand behind one of the goals - great idea, and what we should definitely have done. we meanwhile have a load of corporate boxes in the middle of the North Bank :roll:

apparently they also have pints of lager for just £4 and that they can pour faster.
puts us to shame to be honest, and I hope that feature can now also be introduced at the Emirates.
live bands and decent food as well to encourage you to actually get to the ground earlier.
again can't fault them, lets face it where is the encouragement at Arsenal to get to the ground more than 10 minutes before kick off ?

BUT until they win something again then its :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: FOREVER IN OUR SHADOW :barscarf:



What they absolutely deserve credit for is that they built a proper footie stadium in that their stands are close to the pitch instead of the proverbial mile away like ours are :roll: For atmosphere basis closer to the pitch is a no brainer

I remember Arsenal club officials lying at council meetings claiming new regulations meant that fans had to be further away from the playing field in new stadium builds. :rubchin:

I notice that the corners on the new swamp toilet lid are built up much higher, when it was also claimed by Arsenal that they needed to get more air to the pitch. Probably Wenger's silly idea. :banghead:

Does anyone know if the toilet lids have got the larger seats for fans fitted in their khazi? Or are they standard size?
Maybe time for Arsenal to increase capacity by putting standard sized seats in the lower tiers / ends. :barscarf:

I predict traffic chaos on the North Circular / GC Road, Victoria Line & WHL / Bruce Grove stations, evening games.
There is no way a backward swamp can cope with all the extra vermin! :twisted:

Stratford WHU is already a nightmare, local transport infrastructure can't cope for evening games with commuters going back East & Essex. :shock:

Let's face it any venue in London catering for 40k+ is a traffic nightmare.

Apparently Islington council aren't keen on us changing seat size and tbh we are just going to have to wear it that Levy is a better businessman and more pro his own club than any of the clowns we have had since the inception of the bowl. I saw a tweet/twat from the back of their new stand and the view is utter shite so that's something they've got wrong at least although they will still charge a bomb for it.

They have waited over a decade longer than us for a new swamp and ironically it would appear that we are both now skint where we should be comfortably ahead of them. Unfortunately TOF pissed it all away before we got shot of the silly old cu.nt. More air to the pitch :roll:

I wonder if the boys have left a positive impression on His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Rashid Al Maktoum. :rubchin: :rubchin:

Are you hoping enough to make a multi million pound take over bid ?
Sad isn't it?, just how desperate we've become because of the utter w@nker that owns the club.

Oh and now Spurs have a bigger stadium as well, we can all make jokes about it looking like a toilet bowl but that is just being defensive because we are looking small time now, it's not going to change though with wiggy around.

We're a joke, but at least there is no danger of me wasting my money on the club though, every cloud and all that...

:roll:
Wind your neck in mate. How the fuck are we looking "small time" compared to the perennial centennial bottlers up the road? Because they tacked an extra 1000 seats on a stadium they will never fill after the first season aura wears off?

Ffs their big "ramp up event" attracted a grand total of 30,000 vermin. :oops: :lol:

Their "elite" level managerial genius :coffeespit: coach has won NOTHING in a 10 year career. Even Wenger in the last decade when he was gone to shit as a manager won THREE FA Cups - all while the media were hailing a trophyless Poxychinos as a genius. :oops: :lol:

Even Moron-hio nailed it when he took the piss out of this modern definition of "elite coaches" that have won nothing (Poxychinos) or only a couple of minor backwater trophies years ago (Stupid Teeth). If you have won no major trophies you are as "elite" as Fat Fuck Allardyce.

That new toilet will hurt them financially and when citeh come calling for Fat Tongue with a wedge of wonga he'll go and Poxychinos will go to Spain and the vermin will drift back out to mid table mediocrity where they belong, their brief spell of "success" a footnote in the history of football.

Yeah our owner is a cùnt but ffs let's not lose the plot entirely.
A fucking men. Seriously people talk up the *word censored* from n17 as a way to put down the arsenal on occasions. Yeah things aren't great for us at the moment but for fuck sake let's not go all itcybaba...yes one of them from n17

I'm not talking them up, they are a joke of a club but then so are we now, thanks to wiggy w@nker and his portfolio of average sports club investments.

Having a smaller stadium than them is embarrassing though, then again why do we need one when we have so little ambition?, it's not as if it is to bear witness to title challenging classics or later stage CL football anyway, hopefully Spuds goes the same way, doesn't fix our problems though, anyone know a good hitman?.

Another issue back then with the stadium was Islington Council height restrictions for the new ground. But since then we have more business & residential skyscrapers being built all over the borough, from City Road to Finsbury Park. :banghead:

Seems that Islington Council c/w TFL fleeced Arsenal, getting a new recycling plant worth £70Million for free, & £120Million for social housing & local transport improvements.

Meanwhile the Swamp Dwellers fail to contribute to local transport links & housing, even demanding a Victoria line tube extension for free, despite having a tax dodging owner worth £4billion. Obviously there must have been some bungs bouncing about when Boris the Bullshiter was London mayor. :rubchin:

The incompetence of those running Arsenal FC since the early '60's is staggering. Paying through the nose for a new stadium whilst other clubs get theirs without contributing bollox all to the local community.

At least the Toilet Lids have wasted any advantage by failing to negotiate a fixed price with a construction company. Who the fuck has heard of MACE anyway? Stadium cost was supposed to be under £400million but it's gone way over £900M according to many media reports! :D They even had to borrow more & supposedly they are £700M in debt.

They can't even find a sponsor for the Toilet Lid! :barscarf:
