Spurs star admits that he misses White Hart Lane

On the 3rd of April 2019, our new behemoth of North London opened with a bang.

Daniel Levy’s labour of love and our brand new state of the art stadium burst into life with fireworks off and on the pitch.

We were home and our time flirting with Wembley was logged as a footnote in our history, and the familiar ringing melody’s of White Hart Lane forever etched into the fabric of our DNA.

But now, we shift our focus to next season with hope that our reinforced team can hit the ground running and create a cauldron of noise within the new 62,062 capacity seater stadium.

For one Spurs star, our very own, Harry Winks this also rings true after speaking with passion and love for our old and new stadium with talkSPORT host, Jim White (talkSPORT): “Do I miss White Hart Lane? Yeah, it was an iconic place.

“It was where I scored my first ever goal, I watched games there all through the years when I was young, it was an incredible place.

“You could always feel the crowd on top of you, especially when you were playing well.

“At some stadiums you can hear the crowd but you can’t quite feel it on top of you, whereas at White Hart Lane you could always feel it.

“It’s similar at the new stadium. When you’re on the pitch it feels like the fans are there with you.

“What they’ve tried to do is make the pitch and stadium as similar as they possibly could on a bigger dimension and a larger scale.

“It still feels like home when you go there. It’s only been eight games, but it sort of feels like we’re still at White Hart Lane.

“It feels like our home already.”

Winks, I’ll see you on the field, you maestro.
