      Well.....

      Just though I'd get this off the ground, yes it's a little way off but all the 2017/18 PL discussion in here.

      Tottenham go into this season 2nd placed finishers (runners up to the Chavs) and looking to consolidate our position amongst the top 4 and title contenders, while moving out of our home ground and occupying Wembley Stadium for a season while WHL is transformed into the best modern stadium in at least Europe if not the world. 61+ thousand fans will be able to watch Spurs in a state of the art football stadium with the biggest single tier stand (17.5k) in English football, the White Heart Wall.

      This season sees Tottenham play in the Champions League in sussessive campaigns for the first time and us looking to improve on last seasons showing of not progressing past the group stages.

      Wembley Stadium our home ground for 2017/18 has historically not seen the best performances from Spurs in recent times. Tottenham played their CL games through 2016/17 at Wembley failing to register a single win. In fact we have failed to win at Wembley since our cup win in 2008...!!!

      What should we expect in 2017/18... Who knows as the variables are huge.

      What I would like to see is Poch continuing to impose his style of play on our team while adding another element for when we come against stubborn bus parking teams. I want to see the players brimming with passion and pride while playing for Spurs and striving to be the first names on the team sheet to open our new ground in the 2018/19 season.

      I'd like to see what the latest offerings from the academy are and how Poch is going to keep moving this squad on a positive tragectory.

      COYS.

      In only 9 days time we will know who we are playing and when for the 2017/18 season at Wembley. I guess following this date, the club will make us aware of the ticketing options, bundles, packages and pricing for the season at Wembley?

      Hurry up, I'm missing watching the best team in the world entertain us.

      Good move for them. He'll probably be fucked off come season end though as that's the Watford way.

      In regards to our Wembley record, as abysmal as it is we did still manage to beat CSKA Moscow there in the last CL group game.

      I really hate this Wembley hoodoo nonsense, you look at the run we've had and there's only the semi defeat to Portsmouth which really pisses me off.

      2 of the 3 Chav losses, they were pretty much overwhelming favourites, so no great surprise in the 5-1 and 2-0 losses, only the last one were we seen as realistically having a good chance and with a bit more luck, we could've turned them over.

      We've lost to Utd on penalties, no shame in that.

      We've lost to the eventual cl semi finalists, even in that game, if my memory serves me correct, we were pretty decent.

      An underwhelming draw against Leverkusen, when we were in the middle of a fairly lacklustre patch in the league, as well as missing Toby and Harry.

      Finally a draw against Gent, where Deli was sent off and despite not being at our best, we pretty much battered 'em.

      I expect us to have well and truly put this supposed hoodoo to bed, within the first 5/6 weeks of the season.

      You can get 16/1 on them being relegated. Think i'll stick a lady on that.

      Southampton have sacked manager Claude Puel after one season in charge.

      The 55-year-old Frenchman, who was appointed in June 2016, led Saints to eighth in the Premier League last season despite losing 16 games.

      They also reached the League Cup final, their first major final since 2003.

      A Southampton statement read: "The search for a new management team is under way. We are confident that we will find the right fit in line with the long-term vision of the club."

      Fuck that, I want COMFY SEATING! Cold wet arses can lead to severe medical issues in old folks like me, I will;l sue Levy if I get arse related problems due to those cold, hard, wet plastic seats - not made wet by me, I still have a bit of bladder control as long as I have a wee before the match, at half time and on my way out of the ground, not during the match I hate those cunts that are up and down like fucking yo-yos, going off for a piss every 5 minutes, if you can't go 45 minutes without needing 20 visits to the bogs then you should not be allowed to buy a ticket.

      You can stand safely, I want to sit in a nice comfy armchair with enough legroom and some separation from the lardy fat cunts who always get the seats either side of me, those obese cunts should not be allowed to buy tickets either. I also want a button to press to electrocute the fuck out of those cunts who moan all through the match then leave 10 minutes before the end, or sit there on their fucking phones not even bothering to watch the game.

      Unless their opinion has changed wildly in two years, I'd be surprised if they were neutral now. They are all about making the game inclusive, and felt all seating stadia made the game more accessible to women and children.

      That said. I'm all for it. Get it through ASAP so the White Wall can be converted to safe standing before we've finished it.

      Crystal Palace have named former Ajax and Inter Milan manager Frank de Boer as their new boss on a three-year contract.

      The 47-year-old Dutchman succeeds Sam Allardyce, who left after helping Palace avoid relegation last season.

      That's could be a good move for them. Keep most of their betters players and spend wisely in the summer and they could resemble an half decent team/competitive mid table team.

      There was something like 17 points that's 6 games difference between 7th place Everton and 8th place Southampton this season who finished with about 48 points. It's two different leagues now.

      I would imagine that considering to sell 18000 Season tickets, has resulted in going to 40,000 on the bronze list, that selling Wembley next year and the new Stadium in future years isn't going to be easy for West Brom on a Tuesday night.

      They will need to come up with some creative ticket pricing packages.

      I think it'll be ok in the new place as season ticket holders and corporate seats will take up a large chunk of the place but Wembley is another beast all together, coupled with the fact some fan's aren't happy with a year at Wembley it could be tough to fill that place against a West Brom on a Wednesday night.

      Was hoping the Chelsea game wouldn't get changed to the Sunday... I knew it would get pick for tv but was hoping to remain a Saturday. I'll still be there even if I got rearrange stuff now.
