Tottenham’s new stadium is reportedly costing upto £1bn after estimates had suggested £400m!
Arsenal’s Emirates Stadium was up and running in 2006 at a cost of £390m. Well that inflation for you!!

For those who are builders on here...firstly, apologies for the below
How the fuck do quotes run so far over.....Wembley was over by three times the original amount and as menmtioned, Spurs is heading the same way.....is this because the building companies simply under estimate to get the job or are there all kinds of backhanders going on there ?
