Spurs legend hits out at Supporter’s Trust

The Carabao Cup third round draw took place last night, and Tottenham were awarded a home draw for their tie against Watford, the only problem being that they have no home ground.

The new stadium is still under construction, and Wembley is already busy on the desired date, so Spurs would be forced to either reverse the fixture, or play at a neutral ground.

They chose the latter, applying to use MK Dons’ Stadium MK as their temporary home for the evening.

The Tottenham Hotspur Supporters Trust have hit out at this decision, angered by the notion of using a ground outside the M25, which fans made clear was a big priority.

The THST also want to stand firm with AFC Wimbledon, as there is still bad blood between them and MK Dons over the split and move over 15 years ago.

Tottenham legend Graham Roberts disagreed with the Trust’s decision to boycott the game.

What are your thoughts on the matter?

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. I agree entirely with Graham Roberts on this. I am a paid member of the THST and do not agree at all with the position of the THST Board on this. They do not speak for me. Why be a moaner when you can actually support the team, but then moaning is all some so called supporters like to do. The club is trying like hell to improve everything around us and all the THST Board can do is get involved in ‘politics’ and withdraw support. I am 74 years old and I do not give a hoot about the inter-relationships of MK Dons and AFC Wimbledon. They are not my clubs. Tottenham Hotspur is and when I can take up my ST place at the new stadium I will feel very proud of the club indeed for what it has achieved.

  2. Totally agree with Mike Glyndwr and Graham Roberts. The job of a Supporters Trust is to support the club. If they’re not going to do that then they should immediately resign. Real supporters will get behind the team regardless of venue.
