  1. June 2005 - latest stadium photos !!!
  2. Just read it will be called the "White Horse Bridge".
  3. NEW WEMBLEY PHOTOS!!! Also, from stadionwelt.de :cool:
  4. I hear you Arwebb, I did mean to say in that post that Bobby Moore should have been there, Why does that man always get overlooked. There is already a Bobby Moore Bridge at the end of Olympic Way, next to Wembley Park tube station
  5. White Horse. I agree with Mallaka, naming it after one person would be very hard. But I think White Horse Bridge works best
  6. Also, go here and click on Virtual Tour
  7. LOL, good luck Mallaka, I think you'll need it. "The sheer scale of the new Wembley is dizzying: towering up towards the sky, the stands loom majestically around the central space. It's so vast that it could absorb the old structure something like three times over. I haven't seen a venue this impressive since Ridley Scott's spectacular CGI version of the Roman Coliseum in his film Gladiator. Twice the size of Paris's Stade de France and three times the size of the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff, new Wembley is conceived on a gigantic scale."

  8. Olympic bid rivals London and Paris are also going head to head for the right to host the 2007 Champions League final. The Football Association are bidding to stage the final at the new Wembley stadium at the end of its first full season in operation, but the Stade de France is also being put up by the French federation as a possible venue.

  9. Twickenham is being extended to 82,000 capacity stadium. It will certainly be the RFU's first choice stadium, otherwise they wouldn't be spending more money upgrading it. I'm not sure how wealthy English rugby is, but it's certainly not in the same league as football in terms of finances, and the RFU wouldn't be throwing this money at the stadium unless they believe it will host high profile international events in the future.
  10. As Blackadder famously said: I only didn't laugh out loud because I was afraid if I did, my head would've fallen off. :help:
  11. This thread hasn't seen any updates in a while and a lot has happened.... A new article about the new Wembley "When Football's Coming Home became the anthem for Euro 96, it was precisely 10 years ahead of its time. We didn't know it then, but we do now. Home, in 1996, was Wembley. A crumbling old pile that was unworthy of the events it staged. In 2006, home will again be Wembley, a new arrival which already makes the old ground look like a bicycle shed." "To stand here is to be convinced that Wembley will be regarded by historians as the first English cathedral of the 21st century." "Bel
  12. I heard on the news today that several homes in the area near the arch have lost their TV reception! :oops: Can't find an article about it anywhere though.
  13. THE giant steel arch, commissioned as the centre-piece for the new Wembley Stadium, is nearing its 439 foot summit. The immense construction, which will dominate the London skyline, is expected to be finished later this month. When completed, it will illuminate the night sky for 13 miles around, changing colour with every goal scored, and become the new symbol for the £757 million, 90,000-seater national stadium. ------------------------------------------------------ The 1,750 tonne structure is now fully raised and is illuminated to celebrate England's progress in Euro 2004 The glowing
