AFC Bournemouth left back Charlie Daniels believes the current Dean Court pitch is better than Tottenham Hotspur’s temporary home of Wembley.

Tottenham have moved into Wembley this season whilst their new stadium on the site of the old White Hart Lane is developed.

But whilst Wembley will now see 19 Premier League games, domestic cup matches and European competition played this season with Tottenham as the home side, Wembley will continue to host other games as well.

Over the past month Wembley has hosted an England international as well as American Football.

Due to the amount of games played the Wembley pitch is currently a far cry from the historical surface Wembley has boasted in the past.

Daniels told the Evening Standard

‘…I think it could be better, I think everyone knows that…

‘…You expect it to be the best you`ve ever played on and it wasn`t great, (but) we`ve played on a lot worse pitches.

“I`m sure they`ll get it right, they`ve had a lot of games on it and the NFL games so there`s no wonder it`s like that.

“It`s not quite Dean Court, that`s very good.”

Your Say…

Wembley Should Only Be Used For Special Games

think Wembley should only be used for International games and the Cup Final, plus the other finals that have been played there. Would do away with FA Cup semi-finals and play them on neutral grounds like in the past.
