Aside from the arguements between spud and toon numpties recently I'm glad you lot didnt get it, but not for footballing reasons.

As an athlete one of the things I like about the olympics coming here in 2012 is that athletics will be left with its own national stadium and not before time. We are one of the few countries not to have one and its very detremental on any youngster coming through.

So I hope you lot get your new stadium, but I'm glad it wont be the athletics one.

I'm pleased we havent got it as apparently it will be reduced to 25k cpacity after the olympics.

Which would kinda defeat the point of moving.

Also, further for me to travel. I live just outside enfield which is pretty close to WHL.

I'm glad we don't have it either! I want to stay at White Hart Lane. It's such a sacred place for a Spurs fan

im glad because stadia with running tracks make the action that much further away from the spectators, and as a result the atmosphere is less

Have to agree with that post and a few of the others. Football must not be allowed to dominate all others - athletics in this country does need a home, a Wembley if you like...and Spurs need an upgrade too, but not at the expense of selling a name infused with history, as Highbury, to a corporation.

because the woolwich wanderers might not give a monkeys about things like where you come from but when you're from N17 you shouldn't have to go to the east end to watch your team

Is it not possible to extend white heart lane like we did with sjp?

Im delighted that our nations youngsters will be able to practice running round in circles and chucking spears.

On a serious note, I am quite pleased we didn't move there. Rather see WHL and the surrounding infra structure developed.

I think it is meant to be quite difficult due to the built up area and poor infrastructure.

The are on match days is packed as it is, and takes ages to get your train.

Add another 10k or more fans and it would be gridlocked.

Also the cost is ridculous it cost us 44million to add the extra 15000 seats to SJP and apparently the new ground we wanted to build with 55 000 seats would have been no more than that yikes

Typical 'kiss baller' attitude, at least the youngsters who 'run around in circles and throw spears' actually win something now and again, not only England BUT also the Uk.
When was the last time the over paid and underskilled footballers managed anything like that? was it 1966? Sure certain teams, Man U,Chelsea have won various 'European' cups but not THE European or World cup.
If you want to be derogatory about today's youngsters make it about the oiks who will never participate in any sport other than kicking a bladder full of wind about the local park whilst wearing 'Their' team (whom most have never been to see play anyway) shirts.

Ignoring whether or not it is right for football, I cannot see why they are reducing the capacity right down to 25,000 for athletics.
The Crystal Palace track holds 20+ and is always completely full for the London Grand Prix - I would have thought 30-35 would have been a better idea!

Yeh man, don't knock Athletics or any other Olympic sport for that matter. You're basically bashing some of the hardest working and fittest people in the population of the whole UK. These are some very underpublicized people.

Yeh, but CP is a hole. Much like the complaint about the old Wembley, even if it did have good tradition.

Having lived up at Bruce Grove for a year or so I'm at a loss as to how on earth you could extend WHL. I'd also be jumpy about whether the transport system up around Tottenham could handle another 10-15,000 fans every weekend - it's a nightmare as it is.

I never have any problems on the tude, I arrive about 40 minutes early for a swift half and catch the bus from seven sisters. never a problem.

Would be great if they got a tube station outside the ground though.

Are the overland trains jammed?
