Just renewed my OH+ membership. Hoping that I’ll get the chance to see as many games as I’ve seen at Wembley over the last couple of years.
 
Par for the course.Levy will hold as many high brow functions as he can at the new place.It ups it status and helps pay it off
I just hope if and when Justin bieber plays there we get first dibs on tickets ...
 
I'll say one thing after the Champions League final - that Wanda Metropolitano its an absolute lump of shit compared to our new stadium. Its like some soulless concrete shell - and the facilities were scarce to say the least.

Roll on August....
The biggest difference between the two IMO wasn't the actual stadium (although ours is several notches up) but it's what is outside. It gets said so many times but it's still hard to really quantify but our "soul" remains. This 'soul' is everything except the bricks, mortar, concrete and steel and glass. It's the walk up to the stadium from whatever station your personal route takes, be that through a series of alleyways and short cuts weaving your way through the houses, parks and cemeteries, or boldly down The High Road. These pathways all have well over a hundred years of history, both good and bad that all make up us today.

I'd go so far as to say the new stadium has supercharged our soul, it's more of a thing now when The High Road is now closed off as you approach on match day. Look at the scenes from the CL viewing, seething with Spurs fans on the streets and in the pubs hours before KO!!! The irony is that it's now this is what is being moaned about, the queue to the station, the queue for the bar but it these things that are of legend that make up the I was there moments that form the soul of the club.

The Atleti stadium is 20kms(?) from their old place it's in the middle of a waste land, it's a typical new stadium without any soul or history.

It's just a standard road, no real pubs and then this big wasteland with a stadium. Our stadium being on the same site is so important.
