So it’s 845 and I’m off to Wembley , Ooops I mean the Real home of Tottenham , WHL Mk2 .
Me and Callum got lucky to get,onnthe first opening at 11-13.00 , and Callum got even luckier in that his top of the table clash game got cancelled .
So I’ll be posting pics later and I’ll see if Can do vids too .
“We’re going home, we’re going home , Tottenhams going home “ .......sometime in the next decade

Had a brilliant day, pint of Guinness in the brickies, sat in my seat, great view, row 50 Block 322 close to Finchbee above. Stadium is vast, iconic, and at WHL. It is impressive in every way and will be a brilliant new home in time. Saw Robbo, Chiv, Mabbs and Falcao. I’m buzzin, if you’re able get a ticket and visit. It’s worth it.

Hopefully a skilled IT man from this parish will post a few pics and maybe a vid....

One thing I couldn’t understand was , the area to take a corner from is about 2 ft as was the distance by the Bye line , you won’t want to make a challenge by it , cause the advertising boards are 2 ft away ...

Rich is that on the west stand side cos from photos there seems to be a much larger gap between playing surface and boards on the east side, the shelf will never have been so far away from the pitch!

The pitch is really close to the advertising boards, and also about 3 feet higher - like old Trafford. So West Ham and the Scum it ain’t- you’re right on top of the players. The atmosphere should be brilliant, a few random Yid army’s sounded good today.

I think it's comfortably the best stadium in the top six in the country, in terms of aesthetic and features, and I'm struggling to think of anything even remotely comparable in the UK. Wembley honestly is closest in terms of fan setup, but the viewing experience looks better at NWHL.

I honestly don't know what stadiums compare to it worldwide. Really is something.

Reckon with safe standing there's a good chance of getting a Champions League Final one day.

I wrote to donna to congratulate them on the stadium and yesterday, got a nice reply back...
Who is Donna , it would be great if the prices for food and beer aren’t more than a £5 , and a burger and chips £5+£2 , but if it’s 6.50 and £10 , they’ll screw it up .
It’s better to sell 10,000 at £5 , than 2000 at £7

Guinness is a fiver, but I prefer it in a glass in the Brickies, won’t happen on match day though. The spicy sausage rolls are good but should be at £3.50 along with the pies

That a the key... people will on the whole skip the boozers if they can have a decent pint and grub at the stadium. When they're lagging they'll spunk money on merch too...!

My overall feelings are still with the local places before,whether that means a sneeky one if we get inside in time or if most people I meet are there early I change my habits?My sentiment is with food&drink places I have used for years and hopefully they will respond to THFC`s offering with better prices outside the ground.No way should a wetherspoons huge chain be increasing prices on match days just to milk a captive catchment,why in your most profitable hours do they charge so much more,other than they can,have to say WHL inside was the same,motorway service pricing and quality,cos they could.

In surveys I pretty much got everything I answered about,when you have been going +40years and you answer never to what food&drink do you buy in the ground,something was wrong before.The fact everyone was in different concourses,so you hang out with mates in the pub until the last minute,(wasnt like that in the 70s&80s when you could move around the ground).Pricing and quality,choice was dire before,those little trolley vending machines in the old east stand were a fucking embarrasment to retailing.So I am glad the club is taking a different/right direction,makes total sense,I have thought for years they were missing a huge trick by being so poor,and I pretty much say that about all football club stadiums,including wembley especially.Plenty of space,counter footage to get served but the choice,prices and queues at times.
It is about time,lets hope these early prices and choices arent merely an opening period promotion.The club look to have got this spot on which is fantastic to see.

Couple of things, the club have at least tried to make a difference and offer a good variety of both food and drinks to suit all tastes. The pricing is also reasonable and competitive in some areas. What it lacks and will always likely lack, is the character of a cafe for a full English breakfast, or a pub for a pre match beer and sing song. The South stand is great, we saw two levels, it is however cavernous, a bit like Wembley but with much more 'warmth' of a home stadium. I also like supporting the local businesses and there is more variety and better tasting food right outside. However decent the catering offer at the stadium, it is still mass produced, re-heated in most cases, and left with the breads/pastries going hard under warming lights. in short stadium food. I'll have a Guinness and or an Amstel, maybe a sausage roll, but that's after a trip to the Brickies and a kebab or a full English.
