Sorry state of affairs
Fat chance of any of that at the Olympic Stadium. You're lucky if the lights and ceiling fans work, as often they don't. For the first league game of the season, the Crown players had to change in semi-darkness and were sweating buckets, yet their opponents had no such problem. Blue plastic chairs make do rather than the heated seating at Arsenal, there are no hot water showers and the toilets often don't flush. There's a tatty table in the corner for the physio to work his magic on player's muscles before the game starts. Faces often appear at the windows at the back of the room and holes in the wall mean anyone can listen to the team talk and tactics. All in all it's a sorry state of affairs that the best, and only stadium in the country, has such stone-age changing facilities.
