i wrote about this in the match thread for the game, on football focus they did a piece on it- they also mentioned that the groundsman at wemblet had been banned by the FA from talking to anyone about the state of the pitch.
i'd also actually be worried about it causing us an injury, what a pisser if we were to have someone injured because they are playing on nothing better than a farmers field

looked shocking today. it was cutting up all over the place, players falling over, the ball bobbling about everywhere and I imagine it will be even worse tomorrow after being played on today.

You'd think with all the money they're stealing from the fans they'd at least be able to afford a decent groundsman.
and they don't even seem to care about vegetarians either....bloody fascists:police:

they said on footy focus...get this....the pitch is apparently going to be re-laid again, of course with typical foresight it is going to be replaced AFTER all the important matches have gone ahead.

so it will be in perfect condition for when take that play there later this summer...clever or what?

i was going to ask how long before the crowds are down for the wembley semi-finals and they then start re-thinking about villa park etc, but because of the massive cost of wembley like the england internationals they have committed themselves to a long term deal so they can bring in more cash- even if it means playing on an inferior surface and making it hard for teams and fans alike

was watching a programme about wembley and its construction- did everyone realise that the design we have is a big compromise purely to do with getting as many seats and corporate areas in as possible, while other countries go for stadia that are considered works of art and are places fans can go to enjoy games wembley was one big compromise determined by money

there were many ideas mooted about how to keep the pitch in great condition from changing the roof desing, to having a retractable pitch- all shot down in flames as they just added to the expense.

in a sports orientated ground you would have thought the pitch and its maintainence would have been a primary concern- it IS a sports ground- primarily football after all.
