yea, when huddlestone first came on the first thing he done was shoot when every1 shouted "shoot!". So everyone just presumed that he shoot everytime the crowd shouted.Didnt think the stadium was all that. Looks nice, but they ran out of piza, hot dogs before half time!!Quite similar to the emeriates stadium
The food doesn't come cheap! "Shooooooot!" Huddlestone. Atmosphere wasn't too bad for 1st game!
I know it's off-topic, but does anybody know will the game between England and Croatia be played on this stadium?
Only us, the english, could play nearly £1 billion pound for a stadium and it not look that impressive.Im sure the prawn sandwich facilities are where most of the money went because it must of went somewhere.Why also is there this 90,000 seat thing coming from when its only really 60,000. Bit annoying

The stadium is staggeringly beautiful...you just cant get the scale from photos. Food and drink was always going to be rubbish and expensive so I'm surprised at the surprise. Biggest dissapointment for me was the fact that - according to the security - the fantastic Matthews Bar open air balcony is going to only be open for rugby matches and footie fans will lose out. Whats that all about?
Inside the stadium the seating area and views are fantastic, but apart from the arch there's nothing to inspire at all - it feels more like an airport than a football stadium with all the greyness and the glass.The game itself was excellent, Pazzini and Chiellini were head and shoulders above the rest but to be honest Wembley feels like the place you would go to watch a concert, not a football match.
I would like to defend the new stadium from the criticism it has received by people on this forum. I am annoyed by the lack of enthusiasm shown by some people,pompey_chimes im looking in your direction!! It is a beautiful stadium and the atmosphere will be amazing once the stadium is filled for the cup final. at 800 million it was never going to live up to all expectations,but what you are failing to recognize is that the stadium has bee built to suit the fans needs. Yes there are some teething problems and todays announcement that there are problems with escalators n stewards does not surprise me one bit. And the refreshments prices are OTT, but Im sure in time everything will be sorted out,and this will become a stadium to really be proud of. Imagine if England go on an amazing unbeaten streak there, i bet you would all love it then!!

The stadium itself is absoultely stunning, I was seated in the top tier for saturdays game and the view from this height was nothing short of breath taking. The most surpising thing for me was the sheer steepness of the stands - the person in front of me did not obstruct my view of any part of the ground in any way, something that is not experienced at other stadia.The negative experience i had was having to wait half an hour for a cup of average tea. We began queuing after Bentleys goal on the half hour mark and only just made it back to our seats for the start of the second period.Overall I asked myself is it worth the 700 million or so spent on it, quite simply in my opinion nothing is worth that amount of money, and at the end of the day it must be remembered that for however impressive it is, it is just a football stadium. However that does not in any way mean I was dissapointed with Wembley. It is an amazing piece of architecture and a centrepiece for English football that we can be proud of for many years to come.
pinnacleoffruit, the stadium can hold 90,000 but the F.A only let 60,000 tickets to be sold as it was also a tester. Why do you think there was so many empty seats. Im my opinion the new wembly is a work of art.
