Surely this cannot seriously be considered. It’s a football stadium always has been and always should be. I get the FA have got to increase revenue streams so NFL has a place as does Rugby League.

A one off £500m cash investment in grassroots sounds brilliant, but given the FAs record I wouldn’t trust them with a fiver. In 10, 20, 30 years time I doubt we’d be looking back saying what a great decision that was. More likely we’d be building another national football stadium somewhere.

If Fulham use it they might fill the bottom tier, y’never know.

It did strike me as more than bizarre when I read about it.

Stupid is another word that fits well.

I'd take the cash and build a proper stadium, and nowhere near fooking London.

It's a shite stadium, it's chavvy - the laughable arc is like a belcher chain, set on a sov ring, and can you believe the roof doesn't even shut although it looks like it should!

I'd prefer we'd tour the country though, the Nu Wembley crowd is utterly cack (we'd never have won that match against turkey there).

Having said that the incompetents at the FA will probably get ripped off, and squander the loot anyway.

If the FA can secure the same deal as West Ham, then sell it.

I saw that, on eBay. Might bid myself

Read a decent article on it this morning actually. Says the FA royally fucked up by not buying the land surrounding the stadium, which has now been developed for millions by others.

It cost £750m and granted £150m of that was a freebie from the government it’s still being sold at a loss. The FA, like FIFA, UEFA are a bunch of dipshits. As said, it’ll be squandered on insignificant shite, growth of women’s football and a few defamation/abuse/race/severance cases.

Maybe the semi finals will be back at Villa Park and OT again

Yeah, they messed it up big time. Londonistan, as someone used to call it, might be the capital, but it's not the hub of the wheel. When the England team was on tour, they seemed to be much more popular. I don't suppose the owners would have thought about trying to get various England games here like certain previous ones did.

Can't see them playing England games ar a sradium with a 25,000 capacity. Surprised they are playing at Bellend Road with their capacity. 

2005 Labour got 355 seats from 35.2 % of the vote on a 62.4% turnout. 2015 Tories got 331 seats from 36.9% of the vote on a 661% turnout. Left wing fannies moan the second one is sooooo unfair and we need electoral reform. But didn't utter a peep,about the first one.

As he is spending money on redeveloping Craven Cottage the need won't arise. Fulham must wish they had a chairman like ours.Laugh

It hasn't always been a football stadium as that wasn't what is was designed for originally. The idea was to use it for the Empire Exhibition and then demolish. It cost £750,000, £43 million in today's money. So Governments were as capable of wasting money then as they are now. It would have been cheaper to demolish the London Stadium after the Olympics than what has happened.
Ironically, it was a Scotsman who came up with tne idea of saving it and turning it into the stadium it became.

Did you read the article? Semi-finals, and everything else plated there, would continue tondo so except any England matches for the months of the NFL season, which would only affect England friendlies.

Can we just emphasise this point as much as possible.

Ta.
