There’s an interesting piece in The Times which thanks to a paywall many of you may not have been privy to. Of course, I would say its interesting because it coincides with numerous things I’ve been telling you – for free!

“Arsenal handed an important lesson to Tottenham Hotspur last week: that a spanking new stadium is soulless without the atmosphere created by its supporters and a competitive team. Half of the Emirates Stadium was empty for the second drubbing by Manchester City in five days.”

It’s official. The magic and sparkle of Arsenal’s brave new world has fizzled away. Empty seats are liberally scattered on a regular basis, not just after spankings. The Emptycrates may only be 12 years old but she’s already acting like the troubled teenager.

Tomorrow, THFC announce ticket prices for the New Destination™.

Last season prices ranged approximately from £750 to £1,895 per season. This of course does not include the numerous luxury packages that will be availed of by the well heeled.

The ever irrelevant Supporters Trust asked Ian Murphy (Head Of Ticketing) if he could let them know how bad the cost of regular seats might get. The Murphster’s response was colder than a well digger’s bottom. The THST minutes recalled:

IM didn’t feel there was a tipping point and that pricing was not the determining factor. That was the opposition, competition and match time more than pricing.

Ticketing for the new gaff is an immensely complex business. I shan’t even attempt to explain even some of not here. Suffice to say Robert De Niro’s line in Angel Heart about there’s enough religion in the world to make men hate each other, but not enough to make them love, chimes. There will be just enough people out-priced come Monday to sour the deal. Given the volume of season ticket holders that THFC will have to manage, there will also be heartache and pain in respect of games outside of Haringey with limited allocations.

There is no quicker way to bring a business under scrutiny than to be perceived as charging too much. Football clubs have long felt insulated against having treat their customers well, because they are primarily fans.

If you think a shirtmaker is charging too much, you can always walk across the shopping arcade floor and find another shirt you like at a better price in another store. Being held as an emotional hostage by a football team prevents one from exercising such free will.

Which is why historically the public washrooms at football grounds have been modelled on an Afghani abattoir, and you need a payday loan just to buy two teas and a pie containing just 4% mechanically reclaimed meat.

🎼They’re a Premier League brand and they do what they want🎼

There will now follow a lengthy period of toing and froing between those fans that think austerity is good for the soul, and those that want Spurs to spend like all the successful clubs do.

    Wot a coinkidink, last time I was on here I was, in response to someone, going to quote De Niro from Angel Heart: ”How terrible when wisdom brings no profit to the wise, Johnny”.

      Winesap? Oh he’s dead. Nasty accident. Don’t worry. No-one will mourn one less lawyer in the world – there’s death everywhere these days Johnny. But what gives human life its worth… anyway? Because someone loves it, hates it? The flesh is weak, Johnny. Only the soul is immortal. And yours belongs to ME.

      There are 40k ST holders and about 51K seats to choose from, so the format dictates loyalty points and lenght of ST giving priority to the old school.

          I’d like to say we’re as slow to blood new signings as we are getting players back from injury but then Sanchez (ours) went straight in and has stayed there. Can only surmise from that that El Jeffe knows something that we don’t?

          • Freund or Foe March 11, 2018 at 1:29 pm

            Possibly that up to now he hasn’t felt he is worthy of a starting place, having spent every day with him in training? You have to remember that he’d be replacing someone like Eriksen, Son or Dele. Being good against Rochdale is hardly a good gauge. I hope to see more of him too, but to call Poch stupid for not playing him is….er…stupid.

            • paul March 11, 2018 at 1:31 pm

              ‘replacing someone like Eriksen, Son or Dele’

              The three messiahs?

          • Ronwol1960-61 March 11, 2018 at 1:30 pm

            Its all to do with the system. I think its everything to Poch. Sissoko was played a ton. The quality didnt matter as much as the system. Lovren was a system man. Look at him now. Making a Plan B happen is thinking outside the box. Im not sure Poch can

    • Horndog 🇺🇸 March 11, 2018 at 1:24 pm

      I would love to see him play but Poch doesn’t listen to me.

      • Ronwol1960-61 March 11, 2018 at 1:26 pm

        You see what West Ham fans did yesterday,they stormed the Bastille. It up to each and every one of us to put Lucas Moura fancy masks on and take the fight to the coast

        • Horndog 🇺🇸 March 11, 2018 at 1:28 pm

          I am in. Put me in the Trojan horse.

              Sorry dont do audio would be terribly epxosed. The words are just too difficulkt to sya

    • Andrew March 11, 2018 at 1:25 pm

      Lucas is a very good player, I would have brought him on instead of lamela against juve. Maybe poch will pick him today.

      • Ronwol1960-61 March 11, 2018 at 1:28 pm

        Lamela was the system man. Lucas the plan B creative man. Ive have little hope about him being allowed to play his game anyway. I think Pochs idea is to play the system to the death

        • Andrew March 11, 2018 at 1:31 pm

          Yes, why have a very quick player with good ball control on the pitch. He has to learn about sideways and backwards passing first.

          • Ronwol1960-61 March 11, 2018 at 1:37 pm

            100%

            Did you watch the defenders 10 minutes from the end of the Juve game hesitantly passing back and forth to each other? They looked like robots. Im not sure if Poch is drilling in them certain things but I find a definate lack of creativity in the players at times.
            Im not sure but the more I see pochs managing it seems like this is what he wants.
            Sissoko plays to the tune of Poch ,never mind the quality

            • Andrew March 11, 2018 at 1:41 pm

              Juve defenders were knackered, Lucas running at them would have been interes.

              • Ronwol1960-61 March 11, 2018 at 1:43 pm

                He could also hit a pass… He is one of the few players we have that can actually beat a man…and that creates space

              • Ronwol1960-61 March 11, 2018 at 1:45 pm

                Pochas all about the pressure game.Make the field small and apply pressure and it works a lot of the sime thats why we are where we are. But the only game changer we have is Kane and the odd time Son. They also need supply. I think it was dumb to leave him on the bench.

    • Harry Hotspur March 11, 2018 at 1:30 pm

      Are you suggesting that Poch DIDN’T want him? Cos he watches them train 8 hours a day, 9 days a week?!

      • Andrew March 11, 2018 at 1:38 pm

        I’m sure poch wanted him, he is very good and I think he is a game changer, I want to see more of him.

      • Ronwol1960-61 March 11, 2018 at 1:39 pm

        It was a good deal. 25 mill. But what Poch does with him is the point. Moura has some football in him and it was good enough to put him on the bench vs Juventus but not play him even though we lacked any creativity after the goals. Its because he is relying on the system 100%

  • 61SpursNut🌰 March 11, 2018 at 1:20 pm

    Arse will not win today.
    I’ll bet your house on it.

    More, more, or even more than anyone expected.

    We got 86,000 or so for the Palace game at cold Wembley. We have been frustrating at times but playing some exciting footie too.
    Levy may be dumb but he isnt stupid

    • Caspurs♿️ March 11, 2018 at 1:09 pm

  • Caspurs♿️ March 11, 2018 at 1:08 pm

    More importantly, if the GA fans don’t have access to the cheese room, will we be allowed to bring our own cheese?

    • paul March 11, 2018 at 1:09 pm

      This will definitely be Verboten

      • paul March 11, 2018 at 1:11 pm

        Gastro sniffer dogs to be posted to all entrances, any confiscated food to be sold to the local food bank

    • Andrew March 11, 2018 at 1:11 pm

      No, you can’t bring your own cheese ,but cheaper , smaller portions will be available to purchase at the food kiosks.

      • paul March 11, 2018 at 1:11 pm

        Dairylea triangles and the like?

        • Andrew March 11, 2018 at 1:13 pm

            • Andrew March 11, 2018 at 1:18 pm

              Yes, crumbs will also be available for purchase

  • Nick March 11, 2018 at 1:06 pm

    Trying to make sense of it the other day,Am i right in thinking that some “season ticket” holders from Wembley won’t be entitled to buy the same at the new destination?

  • Mattspurs March 11, 2018 at 1:05 pm

    The irony of Arsenal was that about 20,000 fans had paid for tickets and couldn’t be bothered to go

    • paul March 11, 2018 at 1:06 pm

  • Caspurs♿️ March 11, 2018 at 1:03 pm

    From what I’ve heard, the price banding will be the same for the east stand as it is for the west stand, so there’s one price hike.

  • Andrew March 11, 2018 at 1:02 pm

    We have an average attendance of over 60000 at Wembley and have got over 80,000 in some games.
    There is a huge demand so levy knows if the vocal fans can’t afford it ,someone else can. Supply and demand.
    Hope he keeps the prices low for fans who genuinely can’t afford to buy expensive tickets.

    • Sexy Beast March 11, 2018 at 1:05 pm

      68,000 average attendence, 75,000 perhaps more aveage tickects sold

      • Andrew March 11, 2018 at 1:09 pm

        Thanks for the info. With such demand levy will probably take the piss. It’s true that the normal fan is being priced out. Hope I’m wrong

      • Sexy Beast March 11, 2018 at 1:09 pm

        Man City about 20 seats left……

  • Andrew March 11, 2018 at 12:55 pm

    We know the prices will be high. Just hope our finest players are still at the club and we are challenging and actually win trophies. Otherwise we will be a little missed off.

    • Matt March 11, 2018 at 12:57 pm

      Don’t worry, Sissokos going nowhere

      • Andrew March 11, 2018 at 1:03 pm

      never was

  • paul March 11, 2018 at 12:41 pm

    I’m not so sure they’ll seriously take the piss on prices.
    Levy has shown some canny awareness of getting the atmos right, firstly with his plan to rearrange the tax payers stadium when that was a possible destination and latterly with the acoustic/atmos friendly build of the new place. He knows matchday rev isn’t the be all and he doesn’t want the place with empty seats so i’m guessing they’ll only marginally take the piss.

    • Harry Hotspur March 11, 2018 at 12:45 pm

      He’s going to take the piss industrially and leave you desiccated.

      I saw him play in his debut at Highbury in 1979, two days before my 18th birthday. We lost 1-0 and he was magnificent, as I recall.

      • Caspurs♿️ March 11, 2018 at 12:59 pm
