    Looks like a HELL of a lot of work that still needs doing on that for it to be ready for next season dunnit ? I don't recall the Amex being in that state with less than a year to go. They're nowhere near starting the roofs even. Plus they've got this retractable pitch to snort.

    I've been having a browse on their forums and many people are saying "no problem, we've still got 10 months", as if next August is the deadline. The reality is they're going to need to stage a couple of ramp-up events to get the safety certificate, so realistically, if its not ready by next June / July at a push, then they're going to have another year at Wembley.

    Which would be a shame.

      God I LOVE pictures of stadiums. Preferably as they're being built, or once they're derelict. There's something oddly compelling about them. Keep them coming.

      Me too. For a short while, this was a rare occasion where it was a combination of both.

      Boggles the mind that 5 months ago Premier League football was being played at one of the most iconic stadia in the country, and now not a trace of it is left.

      Saw some pretty sad pictures of Upton Park as that was on its way down. Assume that's completely gone now?

      One of my favourite ever threads http://www.northstandchat.com/showth...mer-Arch-Chase! showed the first part of the arch delivery was in October 2010 so I think they seem to be doing ok

      Would it have to a whole year though? Could the contract at Wembley not be extended to, say, Christmas?

      About 500 more than the Emirates.

      No. You can't switch home venues during the season, those are PL rules.
      At best they could apply to have the first few home games of next season played away from home, as West Ham and Liverpool did recently. That could buy them an extra month or so. Still looks tight to me though.

      I travel past on the train every now and then, and seems to be going up at a pace now. Looks very impressive - almost like a bowl looking up at it.

      They probbaly also have deadlines for NFL games as well.
