Tottenham Hotspur’s troubled redevelopment of the stadium rumbles on, with no obvious end on sight for what has become a costly fiasco.
Six months behind schedule with every game at Wembley haemorrhaging unprecedented levels of cash, even the most obtusely sympathetic fans have lost interest in the video updates.
Neil Ashton says that the first game Premier League game of March (against Arsenal) has been ruled out by the police.
“Levy saw the Gunners clash on March 2 as an ideal grand opening. But overstretched police chiefs and security staff vetoed that idea.
Cops are keen for the first official game to go off without a hitch — and do not want the added scrutiny of a North London derby.
There are also fears visiting supporters could take “souvenirs” and leave “calling cards” at the £850million stadium.”
The Harry Hotspur blog understands from a source close to the club that a test event at The New Destination is planned for the second half of January, on a date after our game against Manchester United on the 13th.
Security surrounding the developments inside the club have never been so high, and I am told that the senior figures are fuming that the running narrative to the build has been less than positive.
I’d suggest these senior figures try being competent now and again. If workers are taking drugs, boozing and jumping off stands in your watch, what on earth did you expect?
The real update required by supporters is detailed breakdown a final number, revealing just how much the club is in the red to.
