There is only one thing weirder than posting on internet forums... lurking on internet forums!

Sadly there seems to be a minority of stewards both in the stands and concorse area who think it is OK to act like a cunt and behave like a thug.
"Party atmospheres" are very hard thing to steward, we've all seen party atmospheres turn into mass brawls with untold damage, even amongst 'friends' that shit just happens. The best way to steward it is to stop it ever getting to that level, as soon as the first signs appear, you say that beer was going air-born, go in and make a few examples. If done fast and well it won't stop the party but it will keep it under control.Noticed this in the Marketplace pre-game. It was loud and a good atmosphere, lots of singing. Stewards held back people coming in which you can understand cos it was rammed. But then another group of stewards turned up, physically bigger and quite clearly there to remove some individuals. Really not sure what they did to deserve to be removed, a bit of beer was being splashed around on the Allez allez chorus, but was an over reaction to remove those few supporters they did. Could have turned a bit nasty.
Quite honestly, the way this lot of stewards waded in and confronted people was over the top and it was quite sad to see, when clearly it was a party atmosphere and people were enjoying themselves.
HSBC was actually close to being a done deal, but the HSBC board rejected it because of the image of the PL vs image of *Rubgy *insert posh sport name*.Having loans at HSBC, Goldman Sachs and Bank of America.
In a simple world Levy should just ‘swap’ (one of) the loans with a naming rights deal for one of those banks
Indeed, the same "upper management bloke" that worked for AIA and got us the AIA deal went to work for HSBC and that was Levy his main contact to get a deal done for HSBC too, but the board ruled out a football sponsorship because they're already invested in cycling and rugbyHSBC was actually close to being a done deal, but the HSBC board rejected it because of the image of the PL vs image of *Rubgy *insert posh sport name*.
Sounds about right
Doesn’t really matter now.Caught up with a good mate today that works in Events Management who had a knees up with a bloke who's an Woolwich fan + worked on the stadium as an architect at some level. Basically he said that withnthe goings on there with rival fans it really isn't a surprise we had delays. When I asked if he meant sabotage he just winked and smiled at me.
I've known this guy for what must be about 10 years now and he's sound. Wouldn't make it up so unless some goon Architect is stirring the pot randomly so long after everything got resolved I'd say that it's a strong possibility the biggest mistake we made was hiring lower level workers that directly have/ had an agenda against Spurs. Make of it what you will lads & ladies.
