News reports that Tottenham Hotspur have complained to Haringey Council about the state of the streets around their new ground. However, despite being the 11th richest club in the world and being located in one of the poorest neighbourhoods in the country, Spurs apparently have no intention of contributing to any clear-up...

Tottemham recorded a recent annual turnover of £306million, with profits of £58million.

Haringey Council, meanwhile, have suffered from £280million of cuts to services over the past ten years.

Presumably they feel the council rates they pay contribute to the cleaning.

I used to live on White Hart Lane, and that area certainly used to be a disgusting mess, and I think the original 'Live of Grime' TV show was set around that area. The council tax also used to be one of the highest in the country too, so I'm convinced it's entirely down to the levels of council funding.

To be fair though, I thought the area had dramatically improved the last time I went (last year), and that was possibly partly down to the redevelopment of Spurs' ground.

At least March until they move in so why not just make a statement saying they are staying at Wembley for the rest of the season rather than dash the hopes of fans yet again.

From Spurs, Wednesday:

We have now received a post-Christmas/New Year update from the contractors involved in the critical safety systems at our new stadium.

The past month has seen remedial works take place, software issues resolved and corrected safety equipment installations increase. Testing has also continued.

We are now liaising with the contractors and building control at Haringey Council to determine a schedule of commissioning, building test dates and building control sign-offs, along with formal test event dates.

Given the time required to deliver these and the test events, we can confirm that our Premier League matches against Watford (30 January), Newcastle United (2 February) and Leicester City (10 February) will take place at Wembley Stadium.

The 51,000 capacity cap will apply for these fixtures.

The Arsenal game will now be played at Wembley. Further details here -

I really think that they should give up on moving this season, and make a fresh start in August.

Agreed. I think Levy over reached himself. He should have aimed for next season rather than have all this faffing about.

Part of Levy's desire to get into the new WHL ASAP must be to do with matchday revenue. Crowds at Wembely seem to be on the decline. Whilst it's only a minute sample, I know a few Spurs fans and even though they are STH's they have stopped going to "home" games whilst they play at Wembley.

Didn't Brent Council recently reduce the capacity allowed at Wembley for Tottenham's league games to around 53k?

Tottenham made a good offer to season ticket holders where they were refunded for each Wembley match, but then allowed to pay for the tickets on a game by game basis.
As a result of this, I expect they have far more ticket holders than you would generally see missing games
Still, they gain with the goodwill by treating loyal fans fairly
It does mean they still have a lot to gain by moving to the new WHL ASAP

It looks like Tottenham will play their first game at New White Hart lane on either April 3 against Crystal Palace or April 7 against Brighton, this depends on whether Brighton reach the FA Cup SF which are played that weekend. There will be 2 test events before any Tottenham games, an U18 game and a legends kickabout.

As they are test events, it would be silly not to have anybody turn up... they are being restricted to 30k and 45k capacity.

Priority for both events will be given to Season Ticket Holders and Executive members, followed by One Hotspur + and then One Hotspur members. In the unlikely event that any tickets remain after these groups have been allocated, a General Sale of tickets will take place.

As you rightly say “In the unlikely event that any tickets remain....”

I think I will have to wait until the League Cup next season and hope Spurs get a home tie.....

Europa League may be a better bet!

Had a look to see what the ticket agencies were charging for some of this season's remaining matches. Cheapest was £190 for the Everton game....plus a £57 handling charge. Crazy
