rant about wembley

dont care if this has been done before cos im ignorant. :D i would also apologise about the length, but ive been wanting to say this for ages.

the last couple of days we've seen a couple of threads about the cost of this new wembley. this will prob come out of taxpayers money, many of whom will never even think of going.

plus the whole problem wembley had before it shut down was that there were too many games there. this had a detrimental effect on the england team imo.

arsenal were playing there in the champs league. there had been cup finals, semi finals, replayed finals in some cases. when foreigners came to play us, they wernt scared of playing there, as they'd been there 5 or 6 times, which isnt right. and apparently the fa cup semis will be going back there when its open because otherwise it wont break even. :no:

we've seen in the world cup and we're about to see in portugal that GREAT STADIUMS DO NOT NEED TO COST HEAVEN AND EARTH. plus i think england going round the country has been really good for all parties, could you really imagine england playing at derby or ipswich 5 years ago? well its happened, and people get to support their country without crippling themselves financially (im exaggerating but you know what im trying to say).

so the point im trying to make in an extremely wordy way is...would you really be bothered if the government turned round and scrapped the whole thing?
