    I said they should be docked points but now they are quite close to Liverpool and City I think I'll change my tune. In fact, give 'em 10 points! They'll still bottle the title the spineless feckers

    The Guardian has been unable to solve the mystery, despite an in-depth investigation that has taken it to the heart of London’s cheese society. The sharp aroma of this, with its fruity, sweaty nuance, will endure for some time.

    I thought the whole cheese room thing was a joke.

    Turns out the whole cheese room thing was a joke.

    According to Glaston the NFL pitch is the main pitch, so technically it's an NFL stadium hosting soccer games.

    Also, don't get him started on percentages.

    Levy was clearly thinking ahead when he decided to add a cheese factory to the new stadium. It's such an incredibly simple yet effective idea it, surprises me that no chairman before him came up with it.

    Cheese is (or at least should be) a staple part of everyone's diet. Just picture all the cheesy goodness that you can create from a single block of the stuff - pizza, mac n cheese, toasted cheese, baked potato n cheese, cheese n cheese etc. The list is practically endless.

    Let's have it right, Daniel Levy is a revolutionary.

    This is a real shame for them. I'd say they only needed a gouda centre back to challenge properly for the title.

    I believe it was just a silly corporate joke. There is a famous book about dealing with and coping with change called 'Who moved my cheese?' For those who care you can find the wiki entry...

    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Who_Moved_My_Cheese?

    Iirc its about two mice and how they both react differently when they get home and find their cheese gone. I remember one company gifting all their employees a copy when they had changed all their contracts en masse to much worse ones. Classy.

    The opening game should be in August.....what is the fecking problem with that :confused::confused::confused:

    Should the opening game be a CL home quarter-final then that would be totally risky and ridiculous.

    Why would it be risky?

    Water not coming properly in the restroom, because no one tried putting all restrooms to use in full capacity before :D :D

    I am just kidding of course, but one of the things a new place sometimes has a problem is running everything at full capacity has never been done during the dry runs. It is an issue that typically is never thought of in any major construction like shopping malls and stuff.

    Wouldn't consider it game risky though.

    At this point I'd honestly just save the opening for the summer/next season now.

    The whole thing is getting me depressed, and I didn't even care about it to begin with. This has felt like a journey that will never end.

    It's too late now, f*** it, f*** everything. They should just give up. Don't open it at all. Close the whole club down. Declare everything "bottled". Give it away to charity.

    Ugh.

    And I don't even care about Spurs at all...

    They'll see sense and delay the opening for the start of next season imo.

    Just make Spurs play behind closed doors in the new stadium until they get their house in order. Will move real quick then.

    They’ve already lost their cheese, it would be unfair to inflict any further trauma.

    If people are annoyed by the stadium situation they should complain about the FA and not Spurs. Every team would do what Spurs are doing and try to get permission to play when the stadium is ready, and it's up to the FA to say yes or no.

    In addition, I don't believe this is actually having a negative effect on any other club except Spurs so I fail to see why people are getting so worked up over this.

    Its really nice but it looks REALLY out of place.
    A bit weird having it on a main road.
    Could be wrong but i swear most stadiums arent on busy main high roads.

    The FA might be to blame for the majority of the world's ills but it hardly seems fair to blame them for Levy's Tower of Babybel.
