    Will they use the land released by the old ground to build lucrative housing like they did at Arsenal?

    Looks like about five blocks of apartments fill the void left.

    1 season with possibly a second if the project over runs.

    The new stadium is going to be immense. It will be by far the best of the new grounds.

    Shame for Spurs fans and football, another grand old ground gone just so the club's owners can bring in more corporate 'clients' and daytrippers.

    He (Willo) is actually a Spurs fan and believe his nephew is at their academy

    They're only there for one season. It's then likely that Chelsea will play at Wembley (or potentially Twickenham) for 2-3 years whilst Stamford Bridge is rebuilt.

    Yup, over the years a new ground, or new stand, has caused issues for many a club.

    Really think many under appreciate the job Wenger did steering Arsenal through the Emirates move.

    Think they might hold the record for the highest English domestic club attendance, whilst
    Playing at Wembley.

    True. They say they are doing it to generate extra off-the-field revenue. Odd that as the experts on here say football clubs don't need extra revenue. They just seem to rejoice in the low number of STs sold.
