    Alan Brazil saying this morning that he heard from someone that there's not a hope it'll be ready to go by next season. He was told there's no way it'll be completed and pass safety in time for the season.

    Alan Brazil said on talk sport this morning that he has it on very good authority that the stadium will be nowhere near finished by the starts of next season. I'm sure he said he has heard it will only be 60% complete.

    And all the people working on the build saying they are ahead of schedule are just liers and cheats.

    Brazil would have been talking to the old players like Maxy Miller & Ozzie
    don't think he would have spoken to the works managers
    yes still lots to do, but not sure what effect a good/bad winter will have on the works ?
    remember it will have to be finished long before season starts to get safety cert's and run tests with supporters getting in/out
    maybe fall back position is to open with a 35-40K capacity ?
    for me the problem will be getting the astro and rolling pitch installed
    seats should be lifted in by crane as fitted on rows, roof will be lifted on,
    fitting out should be easy enough as its a new build

    Brazil is a drunkard. It was probably a unicorn that told him.

    If Levy fucks the cheese room for the first game I'll never forgive him

    The stumbling block is if we finish 4th and have to play CL qualifiers - you can't move those

    Have to agree that the mail is by and large an awful paper only sometimes compensated by the sports section.

    The photos are the ones from the club website yesterday so you can see them there comment free. Having said that I skimmed through the first few and they were largely complimentary, including a sensible Liverpool fan applauding what we are doing.......always said I liked those bin dippers!

    just out of interest, are we allowed to move part way through the season? Say January?

    I'm a pessimist so don't think we've got a cat in hells chance of getting it ready, what with the pitch, sign-offs and I have a feeling the roof might be a bit more than 'drop it on'. Saying that, they're not new developments, they knew these always had to happen and would factor it in. They would also factor in a degree of bad weather over winter impacting the schedule. What they can't account for is a problem in the supply chain - those are the things that will kick the schedule out which are beyond our control.

    When will we have to take our option out for an additional season at Wembley? Think this will be the first sign things are behind schedule (if they are).

    TBF, it's a massive project so to think it can all be complete within 18months is pushing it...

    If the roof goes up in January/early February, we are on time. If not, maybe not. A genuine ITK suggests that we are within range of on time, meaning that everything will be completed before the season, but maybe closer than originally planned.

    And you can bet that Levy will request the first home fixture to be pushed back a far as possible to allow extra time. I suspect the first match will actually be after the international break, similar to what Liverpool did last year.

    From what I can remember about the Premier League's rules, no. They say you can't have 2 "home" venues in a season. It's to stop clubs having say a 35k stadium for most games but changing tons 70k for the top teams to get more income.

    No. You have to play all 19 home league games at the same stadium.

    If we are late by a day - we are late by a year.
