What happens when anyone says that your "church" looks quite ugly?

Fascinating project anyway!

Although it should've been built in Birmingham ... it is truely the Holy Grail of Football.

everyone around the world wants to play at wembley. you had players signing for English teams Just for the prospect to play a cup final at the Temple.

Americans have never really got the jist that there might be something outside of thier country that is worth recognising ... but if there was something we would like you to take notice of, it would be wembley.

wake up, look at the facts. the old Wembley was the best stadium in the world, even with the Stade De France, and thier only making it better, ... so i think you know where my arguments going.

Today was the day when the arch started to rise

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/e...on/3756065.stm


The first stage of inching the huge arch that will be the centrepiece of the new Wembley Stadium into place began on Friday.
The 2,000-tonne structure is being slowly lifted off the ground, but it will not be in its final position for another five or six weeks.

Designers say that when the 440ft tall arch is in place it will be able to be seen across London.

The raising of the arch was delayed in March after tests showed weak spots.

'Quality assurance checks'

Computer tests found welding faults and problems with the concrete foundations.

Multiplex Construction UK, the contractor for the Wembley Stadium project, said the defects were discovered during "quality assurance checks".

The stadium remains on target to open in 2006.

The 2006 FA Cup Final is set to be the first match played there when it opens.

As ever you can keep track of the wembley development by visiting either of the below webcams.

Nou camp best then new wembley? Why? It may be fantastic stadium, i'm not saying it isn't.
My point is that only a newly built, massive stadium, with the most modern features and, could ever compete with this new Wembley.

I think alot of people don't realise Wembley is called the home of Football, Temple etc is because England is the home of football, and Wembley is England's national stadium

The Cowboys will not be moving to Fair Park anytime soon. The bill was rejected. Thankfully.

In any case the project looked mediocre. 75,000 seats and the dimensions of the stadium were not much bigger then Ashburton Grove (Arsenal)

The reason people get excited about Wembley is because of the love that the English have for football and for Wembley in particular. It's HUGE! Far, far bigger than anything esle on earth. If it had the same 'seating density' as Stade de France it would seat 170,000! And Stade de France is currently the stadium by which all others are judged.

I actually calculated that if the new Wembley retained the 173,00sq.m accomodation area, but then took the accomodation area seats from the Stade de France (70,000sq.m - 80,000), the new Wembley could seat some....................197,714!!!!!!!!!!

i remember reading an article somwhere that in the future they could increase the seadting density of the lower tier of wembley to give it a 110,000 capacity... if the demand was there, highly unlikely it will happen though

Dr. Dubai - this will be the biggest footie stadium in the world! Its accomodation area is 173,000sq.m, now compare that to the Stade de France which is 70,000sq.m - this thing is a giant of epic proportions its nearly 2.5x the size of the Stade de France but with only 10,000 more seats. I don't really know how I can really say much more than that


Scar - well have you never had to wait for ages for a urinal The new Wembley sorts that problem. 1 toilet to evey 45 fans
