Mauricio Pochettino says his gut feeling is that it will be ‘tough’ for Tottenham Hotspur to play in their new stadium this season.
Following Pochettino’s comments, some Spurs fans have shared their views on social media surrounding the uncertainty of the 62,062 seater stadium.
Tottenham have already confirmed that the North London derby against Arsenal on March 2nd will be held at Wembley Stadium, while there is still uncertainty surrounding the club’s home fixtures for the remainder of the current campaign.
Issues with critical safety systems forced the North London side to postpone their original opening date of September 15th 2018 when the visit of Liverpool had to be moved to the national stadium, where they have played ever since apart from one Carabao Cup tie at Stadium MK.
Before the stadium can officially open its doors for competitive football, they must first secure a safety certificate by holding two test events at the ground.
Here is how some Spurs fans reacted to Pochettino’s comments (Independent).

The year is 2359 – Brexit negotiations are still ongoing, Raheem Sterling is still being nominated for PFA Young Player of the Year and Spurs have still yet to move into their new stadium…

Laying the foundations for disappointment. Poch will obviously know a lot about the stadium and the chances of it opening this season. Probably time for us to accept it will be next season ? https://t.co/0U85zZCLeg

Very true, we all want to be home at NWHL, but no Poch, sorry but we HATE Wembley, less and less of us there each week. It's an awful atmosphere for those of us still going. So many 'tourists' in that awful soulless bowl.
