Earlier this evening, Tottenham Hotspur announced that their new 62,062 seater stadium will not see any action this year, which has led to some of the fanbase taking to Twitter to vent their frustration.
The new stadium was supposed to open on 15 September when Liverpool were due to travel to N17 but safety concerns led to a delay.
Instead, Tottenham will continue playing games at Wembley until the end of this year at the very earliest.
Another update on the stadium’s development is expected in early December.
Spurs chairman Daniel Levy admitted in a statement on the official Spurs website that he was immensely disappointed with the delay, but admitted that the decision was completely out of his control.
This led to some fans and those who had purchased season tickets prior to the start of the season to express their unhappiness.
Just stop arsing about and announce that we’re going to be at Wembley all season, FFS.

With such a low wage structure, record tv income, profits in transfers going back multiple seasons, high premier league finishes resulting in big money, champions league runs and we are still over 300m in debt! Meanwhile chairman is the highest paid and look at our owner #LevyOut

Now give us half our money back

The cost of buying tickets for Wembley is far higher than last seasons level, so not only have u taken money for a service you can’t fulfil but we are paying more. A good will gesture would be half price Wembley tickets but there is no good will from Levy.

You would save yourselves a lot of grief if you just be honest and tell us we're going to be at Wembley until the end of the season.
You can't bullshit a bullshitter.#COYS

I knew it would be the Burnley game as touted. Just play the season at Wembley and be done with it! ?

I’m not buying the notion that this has all been unforeseen. It feels like you’ve stung ST holders for our money and now you’re giving it back piecemeal. Just get it over with and announce we’ll be at Wembley for the rest of the season.

Dear Spurs it’s kind of you to give me my money back but when I paid for it I paid in 1 lump sum. I didn’t pay for it in stages 7 days before each game. My 2 tickets cost me £2600+. If Im not going till 2019 it would be nice to have my in 1 lump sum too.
