Just our luck isn’t it?
The one time we have a chance to go there, and we’re not going to be allowed in. It’s not even like it’s something we had to ‘earn’, this was basically handed to us by our new boss’ good friend and we’re not allowed to take advantage of seeing it in the flesh.
The Blues announced yesterday that the Blues will be taking on Tottenham Hotspur in a pre-season friendly on 29th August, the first of our pre-season games to be announced so far. The game will take place at Spurs’ relatively new (opened in April 2019, I’ll let you define ‘new’) stadium, but with one condition, fans won’t be allowed in to watch.
Will fans be in grounds by the end of the year?
Which left plenty of fans to make the same observation on social media when the news came through.
First game at the new Spurs stadium for us and its behind closed doors. Cheers. pic.twitter.com/Gd8OnkqaYB

of course it is when fans can’t attend, any other time it’s kiddy harriers or forest green rovers

What about you? Are you annoyed that you don’t get to visit the new ground? Would you have gone if fans were allowed in?
