Stadium Plan Update

Tottenham Hotspur

comment on the article

Taken from the Club's website:

"We are aware that coverage of comments made by AEG yesterday have been interpreted by the media in various ways concerning the Club's position in respect of the Northumberland Development Project and the Olympic Stadium site.

We should like to make two things absolutely clear at this stage: firstly, we have registered an interest in the Olympic Stadium site in order to keep our options open going forward given the early stages we are in with the Northumberland Development Project scheme. This is a very preliminary stage and a Pre Qualification Questionnaire was completed jointly with AEG in order to meet the deadline for registration; Secondly, we continue to progress the application for the Northumberland Development Project with Haringey Council and will continue to do so with a view to achieving full consent.

We have not changed our position and shall not do so without due consideration and consultation."

Apologies if this is has already been done.

"Can you imagine trying to get a pre-match sing-song going a-la Bricklayers in some corporate type trendy wine bar? Would never work!"

I've got money on our new stadium in Tottenham being named after AEG. All one big cunning ploy by Levy.

Just cant see Tottenham filling 50000 plus at all their games so to move to an 80000 seater wouldnt be great for atmosphere.

Proper football stadiums and running tracks do not mix. How many times a year would the running track be used? Certainly less than 10. If the Olympic people insist on a running track the stadium will be a dinosaur. What about all those holes in the pitch made by the hammer and the javelin too. Wouldn't worry West Ham, but not good for Spurs passing game.

so basically Tottenham have said that they would much rather prefer to stay at White Hart Lane, and in response the Olympic committee (or whoever has rights to the stadium) have said that the running track has to stay, knowing full well this will not go down well with Tottenham. This is a ploy to not lose face in my eyes. I really do hope you stay in North London though, I don't fancy us being replaced by West Ham as the club who will eclipse you in every possible way...

agree with myscarface - running tracks, music events won't mix well in a fotball stadium at all. Remember how Wembley was continaully rined by car events and american football.

messi - doh don't think anyone has to worry about west ham. wherever we go/stay at least we'll have atmosphere!

I know that Spurs' plan for the Naming Rights Stadium on the WHL site is such that they can keep playing on that site throughout on one pitch or another, but I still can't quite work out how that works, and there'll be a lot of disruption from the building works, I'd imagine...

...could Spurs be simply looking to rent the stadium for a couple of years between completely demolishing the current WHL and completion of the Naming Rights Stadium on the same site? Then when that's done, the site goes to AEG.

Unlikely, but not outside the realms of plausibility.
