It needs improving, facilities wise it's poor compared to what the other big clubs can offer.  Having to knock down a shopping mall and few other things for it.

All these new class stadiums being built/ upgraded is a bit grim IMO. Losing the individuality and uniqueness of the historic stadiums they're replacing

Presume food/beer is ridiculously expensive at the New White Heart Ground?

No there is a Microbrewery from Beavertown for £5 pint.  Really good value for London.  And £5 for pint p*ss at SJP

I don't like it either, but it's common place all over the world. Esp if there is land available to get it done.

Absolutely no need whatsoever to drink in SJP when there's f*** knows how many pubs within a stone's throw.
Had a few dances off her when I've been in Blue velvet with friends. She's one of the ones who will push her fanny in your face, usually I like that but hers smells f***ing rotten. Only had dances off her because she agreed to take less money for the dances when me and my mate said we were skint.

I was a pure creep when I was a kid tbf. Used to spunk in deoderant can lids too

And I bet people said the same thing years ago when their club got a new stadium or were upgrading the old one too. These new stadiums will in some years become "unique" as well, until they need upgrading and old farts will start complaining again that their club is losing its soul.

Depends, it might end up being "The Sports Direct Arena"

Would you sell the naming rights to your stadium if it gave you a 20-30m player a season? Or funded a training ground in 1 year? Paid for renovation of SJP?

Yes, people would still call it SJP

We've been down this road before.  I might be tempted if our owner wasn't Mike Ashley.  Ashley being owner means the stadium would be named after one of his brands and the club itself wont see a penny.

Yes, money talks.  Though you'd never get that amount for an existing stadium.

imagine what Rafa would do with the stadium development and training facilities if he stayed and we had a better and an ambitious owner.

Yeah. It's a shame, but that's the nature of the game at the elite level now, and ultimately it's a reasonable price to pay to remain competitive. You don't lose the heritage all of a sudden and those who matter would still call it SJP. Obviously, the scenario you've described isn't what was happening when the stadium was renamed the Sports Direct Arena.

I think we lose our right to whinge about what a commercial non-entity we've become (in comparison to the teams we were close to prior to Ashley's arrival) if we're vehement against massive commercial opportunities like stadium name rights. Not that that opportunity exists, of course.
