Sparks, Wembley by far, but it's an unfair comparison :cheers:Sparks said:Dave, which is better this or wembley?
A couple of comments to counter your observations.edennewstairs said:without wanting to sound like a spoilt little kid or repeat myself too much i'm really dissapointed with two aspects of this stadium:
1) the dip of the roof, which hides the upper tiers, giving the impression that the stadium is smaller than it actually is and cutting off spectators on the upper tiers from one another.
2) the shallowness of the lower tier - if it was steeper it'd make the stadium look a lot bigger.
basically the estadio da luz is much better. it's almost identical but it holds 5,000 more fans and doesn't suffer from the same design faults as the emirates. compare:
having said that, yes, the emirates still is a class act.
do we know why the Emirates had height restrictions placed on it? it seems a little arbitrary to me, I mean, its not like we're under some flight path, and you only have to look a couple of hundred yards slightly west and you have the hideous tower block that is the Metropolitan UniversityIts AlL gUUd said:You can tell that the Emirates had height restrictions.
