    I do wonder if, had it opened on time, we'd have had them sewn up already

    ...and that's before the myriad theories about Google, Amazon etc etc

    Arsenal beat you to it, we have been average to ****e since the move, and apart from the FA Cup wins, we haven’t really progressed or caught up financially with United or Pool, and we don’t have a sugar daddy like Chelski or £ity

    You've had a massive income boost, though possibly not as much as it could've been, but the money has been misused.
    The emergence of two clubs that basically don't care about money has done some damage, of course.
    Failing to suitably replace David Dein had the biggest impact though, in my opinion.

    We've found ourselves in a somewhat similar situation, but due to a different cause.
    Levy took on too much and took his eye off the ball on the squad and transfer side of things, effectively removing a similar Dean figure.
    Our team has become unbalanced and almost unworkable as a result.

    for me it was a tragedy that we sidled up with Silent Stan as the white knight takeover rather than go with the Usmanov & Dein combination.

    Dein and Usmanov are Arsenal fans, and we would have had a billionaire who would have invested money in Arsenal (not pumped in like Abramovich) instead of the billionaire sports team collector that Kronke is.

    the extra income from the stadium is useful and would have got us closer to United, but in reality it’s meagre compared to the “financial doping” that City and Chelsea have done.
    hence we are no nearer these teams than before, and Spurs are the same.
    We are all impacted financially at the moment and Chelsea have just spent £50m plus already

    Chelsea have spent about £80m, so far. Werner (£50m) and Ziyech (£33m).

    **** knows how. £48m for a player who absolutely flopped over here and hasn't hit double figures in the league for Atletico.

    HG Tax applies in other leagues too. Why else do you think PSG wanted to tie Kurzawa down to a four-year contract this week?

    More stadium use, potentially. Seems a bit pointless at the moment, but I guess they can only plan vaguely right now.

    Bet that won’t be cheap, do that and the stadium tour and I bet you’re saying goodbye to near on £100

    Just had a look and it's £39 or £35.10 for members. Important 10p, that.
    Edit: Prices are a little higher for some tours, though. Evenings and weekends cost a fiver more.

    I bet Levy took it out of his wages.

    Levy had no trouble with looking down, after all he has stared into the abyss many times

    Or, as the players called them, Jacques Santini's training sessions

    I think it's fairly normal for new pitches, but ours probably needs extra attention anyway.

    Pretty much, as anyone commuting from Croydon to London Bridge will see the New Den pitch being relaid as soon as the season finishes
