New stadium: Cement and that missing Raker


Well while there is very little transfer activity we'll improve your DIY skills next time you're putting up a new stadium in the back garden for the misses.

I don't remember using one of these to level out the concrete when I was helping do my Dad's drive, a plank of wood did the trick. Mind you, it would take a while if you did the new Spurs stadium using a plank of wood.

Our new found friends the Rakers have been getting in the news lately, one mysteriously disappeared under the cover of darkness you might say. Take a look at the two shots below, now you see it, yellow, now you don't, blue. 

This was perhaps a faulty batch of concrete is the general assessment from the many onlookers to this build. Apparently a small sample of each batch of concrete is subjected to tests. A dollop (it's a technical term for anyone who has watched the 1992 film My Cousin Vinnie) is placed in a cube and for starters tested for surface hardness, a crush test to see how much pressure it can take and water ingress, in other words how much water gets into the concrete, which any defect would maximise.

It has been a brilliant piece of PR from the club to have cameras and a live feed of the build. People are tuning in from all over the world to watch.
