Honestly can't see anyway that they survived. Terrible stuff. I feel numb, despite knowing little about the owner.
Sir Bobby Robson: “What is a club in any case? Not the buildings or the directors or the people who are paid to represent it. It’s not the television contracts, get-out clauses, marketing departments or executive boxes. It’s the noise, the passion, the feeling of belonging, the pride in your city. It’s a small boy clambering up stadium steps for the very first time, gripping his father’s hand, gawping at that hallowed stretch of turf beneath him and, without being able to do a thing about it, falling in love.”

No one's surviving this. Pics on SSN showing it well ablaze. Can only hope those on board were killed on impact.

It's not that long after the game ended, wonder if there are any casualties who were still in the car park. :(

Aye, you've gotta hope that it's somehow avoided those on the ground.

That is horrific. BT Sport start the day with Hoddle collapsing and end having to be evacuated thanks to a helicopter crash.

Not looking good though :(

Will be a minor miracle if there hasn't been any ground casualties :(

Yeah, was the first thing that occurred to me, wasn’t it the staff car park?
Obviously, I'm speaking of a hypothetical world in which there is a greater club than Tottenham.

That looks like a TV van. Hope no-one was in there. :(

Exploded in the air? I thought the explosion was due to the crash landing.

Unfortunately can't see whoever is in the helicopter survive this. Hope the would-be casualties are kept to a minimum.

Nah man, that’s the helicopter on its side. Do they have doors on both sides? Imagine surviving that impact and then not being able to escape.

Feel quite sick having joked about hoping that would happen to Ashley.

You should never feel sick about wishing this on Ashley lets be honest all of our Christmas's  would have come at once if the fat c*** was a victim of something like this
and now Tudor's gone down for Newcastle

Exploded in the air? Helicopters don’t just explode in the air. If that’s what happened, then we’re talking pre-meditated.
