    to answer the question at the end – spurs do. there will be penalties of course for the contractors involved but ultimately it will cost spurs more than it does anyone else.

    how can they get it so wrong? i have no idea. i think the project is going to be finished in what would have been a realistic time frame had it been that way since the beginning. but they tried to get it done way too quickly and that is now causing major problems for all involved. if the contractors said they can do it, then it is their fault but also incredibly stupid of levy and co to actually believe it was doable.

    I’ll try and explain better Paxo, using a made-up scenario… 🙂

    Tender requirements say 8 months to do the electric work, which may or may not be realistic, and has a clause of say 1% per week for a max of 10% for L/D, (every tender I’ve ever worked on that’s had an L/D clause has had a max L/D limit). The bidders look at this, know this is an unrealistic tender, so they all factor in losing 10% because of the L/D, doesn’t matter to them one way or the other then, once it’s reached the max 10% the rest is pointless.

    Looking like Levy was being very optimistic with the time-frame of this build, be it arrogance or bad advice (not too sure how much experience Levy has had in these types of projects!)

    I’m hoping Spurs can take something off City tonight, but I just can’t see it. Maybe the pitch and the state it is in will be a leveller? I actually think that Spurs best hope is that City go to Wembley with the same policy they had when they came to Anfield a few weeks ago. That day neither Klopp nor Pep were prepared to risk losing and were both happy to settle for a point – though admittedly we did come awful close to not even getting that. So if City are going there not to lose there is a chance Spurs may get a point, but City really are that good I can’t see it happening, and of course Spurs will have to cope with KDB, which we didn’t thankfully

    pictures and videos that have come out over the last week or so just look incredible. looks very close to completion but obviously we dont know whats going on behind the scenes. i would assume the test events are being lined up and the wembley extension has been taken out in case of any issues.

    Just seen some of the night shots inside the new Stadium whilst the delays have been a tad embarrassing it looks like it will be well worth the wait. Stunning!

    My boss (or one of them) who lives in Dubai (from London) keeps teasing me about his brother, who is a big whizz in software or something, having a corporate box… “let me know the next time your in London, mate, I’ll give him a call..”

    Of course, that was last summer…. 🙂

    Apparently, the Cheese Room was never actually a real thing… (go on, there’s a joke about mistaking mousetrap infested trophy room in there somewhere for one of you wags!!)

    Anyway, cancelling my tickets, not going if I can’t get my half-time lump of Brie…
