A National Scandle

On Talk Sport today they were asking for people to text in with one word to describe the Wembley pitch.

If I had text in I would have said "scandalous".

It seems to me that somehow the whole rebuilding of Wembley project lost sight of its fundamental purpose.

To build a world class stage on which to perform acts of magic that make history.

Would you build one of the world's largest theatres and put in a make shift stage?

Would you build a huge and beautiful art gallery and put beautiful paintings in rubbish frames?

So why build a great stadium in a place most of the potential audience cannot easily reach, and with a pitch that undermines the skill and talent of those who play on it. Not to mention the danger it presents to those players.

It's a national scandal.
