views on Wembley


BLUENUT

Recommended Posts

From Kidderminster site, who played there at the weekend, apparently sections of the roof couldn't handle the rain and alot of fans were relocated because they got soaked!

Sounds like the FA all over really icon_rolleyes.gif

Worth remembering that these comments are from a Conference side

Funny that, I heard a Kidderminster fan calling in earlier today. According to him:

Chelsea and Manchester fans are in for a treat next week. The new Wembley is amazing

From your first link

There was still massive queues for the bog

Chances are that within a few months they'll be as smelly as flooded as the ones in the old Wembley.

Had a mate go to Kiddy v Stevenage at the weekend, his report of Wembley was not to encouraging!

The new Wembley - soulless, over stewarded, rubbish escalators, leaky roof - akin to plastic venues like Arsenal with their corporate logos replacing real supporters (see Three point lanes - 'to dare is to to do' all round the ground). Give me Dortmund, Porto or Madrid anytime.

The game will eat itself. Seeing that soulless bowl, meal deals and escalators at Wembley convinced me of that at the weekend.

in 20 years people won't remember what supporting a football club is all about, they will pick what team they support at the start of the season and go with it, then pick another one next year!

If you didn't have any affiliation to either club, would you want to go at the weekend? I as a Chelsea fan wouldn't, if they wasn't playing, but there are thousands that would/will because it's the place to be!

WHo would pay 1500k for a tickect to a football match? I know a few that would/have, why are they doing it,

A, value for money.

B, Because they love their club, (and are prone to blackmail?)

C, Because they have more money than sense,(to put into perspective - my season ticket renewal was ?790 yearerday!)

For the FA to charge ?95 face value is a pisstake in itself, thats already over ?1 per minute!!!

Football is already eating itself, it isn't what it used to be! No standing, no foul language, no drinking or smoking, Monday night kick off's, Sunday morning games, Saturday morning/evening games.

The FA sold it's soul and WILL pay when the true 'average' fan realises what a c*nt he's being taken for!!

I think the seeds of doom were sown when the money men, directors, chairmen etc begain looking at the American model - superbowl and all that bollox - where the game itself is just part of an event, a spectacle that's for the benefit of the TV companies as much as anything else. I don't know anything about American football, so those of you that do, don't start on me - I don't WANT to know anything about American football, or baseball or basketball either come to that. So add the Sky factor and tbere you have it - the truth is that the clubs, the FA and the Premier League don't need the fans like they used to. In days gone by, gate money was the lifeblood of the game, those who turned up could well and truly claim to have a stake in what went on, as they could claim to be paying the players wages. As for the price of tickets nowadays, well they've got to keep the f*cking riffraff out, haven't they.

Ah f**k it.

Ah F*** it.

Modern football and the future of it summed up in one paragraph!!

One thing that poeple have not yet taken into consideration and in my opinion will affect footballs "over all" audience is the fact that from July 1st the local boozer, indeed all boozers, will be no smoking. How many people who now attend the local pub with mates to watch sky sports cause they dont have it at home and cant afford to go to the games. will now not go because of the smoking ban. there is a stong possibility that footbal will lose some of it's "casual t.v. fans" and it may force the breweries and land lords to reconsider installing sky sports.

just a thought.
