Potential nightmare scenario for new Spurs stadium

Tottenham Hotspur Stadium

Tottenham Hotspur are finally set to move into their new stadium early next month, much to the relief of all involved with the club.

Spurs were originally supposed to move into the new stadium on September 15 against Liverpool, but delay after delay pushed this date back further and further.

It seemed as if the new stadium would never arrive, and fans may be made to wait until next season, but it appears the day is finally on the horizon.

However, club’s famously seem to take a good while to get used to a new stadium, which would be a nightmare for Tottenham.

Not only this, but the pitch itself will be in for a battering during its early days, as Spurs could play up to six home games in April alone.

Spurs will play Crystal Palace, Brighton, Man City, Huddersfield, West Ham, Everton, and a home leg against either Ajax or Juventus if Spurs progress in the Champions League.

Let’s hope that Spurs can adapt to the new ground, as well as the ground itself coping with the busy schedule.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. This is ridiculous. If there is any doubt at all about the new ground being beneficial to Spurs at this awkward stage of the season it shouldn’t happen. The last thing the Spurs players need is a troublesome “settling in” period added to all their other problems. One point could be the difference between qualifying for next year’s Champions League and not — on top of giving Man City another advantage they don’t need in Spurs’ home leg in the quarter-final of the current CL.

  2. So much has been lain at the feet of this protracted new stadium delivery, that for me it clearly overshadows the actual obvious and glaring reasons that have hampered Tottenham in the efforts to sustain an effective league and title challenge, and one that may yet prove more costly come seasons end if form continues to belie present position. Tottenham’s failure to sign a single player in two consecutive transfer windows, seems now not merely speculatively foolish, but an abject and utterly stupid philosophy that was and has been heavily criticised by media and pundits alike since last summer. As a long time Spurs fan I have long been critical of Levy’s single minded and precarious procrastinations as well as his somewhat opposingly thrifty minded approach to buying talent against selling it; but in terms of present strategies and ambition this really does take the proverbial biscuit. Given now that Spurs season just got a whole heap harder now that news have emerged of our latest champions league quarter final opponents, and when you look at the premiership run in for the top six in which Tottenham arguably have one of if not the toughest left you are in all probability wondering what if anything is left. Personally as a realist I think there is little actual hope of Spurs progression to the CL semi’s and a very real danger of being top four displaced short of a minor miracle. Unfortunately miracles have been a little scarce of late whilst disasters seem to occur with frequent regularity. If Tottenham do crash and burn then for me the blame lies clearly at Levy’s feet, either way I’m still left feeling we could and should be doing better than we presently are but isn’t that just Tottenham all over?
