    What is unfair is Wembley ticket prices were exhorbitant, with part of the rationale being we need to pay off the build costs. My ticket for the play off was over £100. If the FA knew all along they were going to cash in in the short term then why not reflect this in pricing. FA appesr to have taken as much from the fans of a sport they are meant to govern and then sold up to make a quick buck. Doesn't appear visionary.

    Of course England will still play there too.
    Yes and probably end up paying a premium rent for the use.

    It's the National stadium and is not something that should be sold. Shame on the FA for even considering the bid.

    Quite like the idea of this.

    Best decision made in football for a long time !
    I was thinking the same thing the other day while watching the semi. A day out at Wembley should be for the finalists but hey ho, money talks in football yet again.

    That is a spot on quote hubs... just another step to forgetting/losing our identity

    Absolute Disgrace by the F.A. place steeped in history, Wembley is England & England is Wembley, also why should the F.A. benefit form all the public money invested into Wembley. I Believe around £100M was put in from the public purse,that should be taken back if they sell. it seems the F.A. are just being greedy, they say they'll invest half the money into grass roots football, well we all know that wont happen, the F.A have really lost sight of what they're about, other than making money

    I hope the FA are going to pay back any public money or grants that they received and not take out dividends and bonuses
