Tottenham Hotspur MP David Lammy has given the fans a fantastic view inside the new stadium after he toured the construction site this week.

Set to cost an eye-watering £850m, the new stadium’s construction is going on well and is expected to be ready before the proposed date.

Lammy, who is the Labour MP for Tottenham, is also a Spurs fan and was left in awe when he visited the new Spurs ground. Not only did he appreciate the construction of the new stadium, but also took a sly dig at North London rival Arsenal’s Emirates stadium.

He tweeted: “New stadium looking immense SpursOfficial. White Hart Lane is going to be so much better than the Emirates. I want a seat in the new South Stand please – our new 17,500 seat single-tier home stand. Atmosphere will be absolutely incredible.”

“Much more than just a new stadium, White Hart Lane is going to be a landmark for London and a wonderful symbol of Tottenham going from strength to strength. I am so excited for the first game both as a fan and for what this means for Tottenham.”

The Spurs new stadium was originally set to have a capacity of 61,559 but following the club’s request to raise the capacity to 62,062, the Haringey Council approved it earlier this month.

More than 2,000 labourers are now working on the site day and night to ensure the new stadium is ready for the start of the season. The people working on the construction site are trying their best to keep the construction on schedule.

Then, there is an added pressure on the workers to make the stadium ready before the due date with the stadium slated to host its first NFL game – as part of a ten-year agreement – when the Seattle Seahawks play the Oakland Raiders in Tottenham on October 14.

Although we relocated to Wembley for this season, the fans are highly excited about the prospect of seeing their white army play in the new stadium.

Credit to Spurs for keeping us constantly glued to the process, with videos and images, throughout this season. It is a commendable effort that has indeed kept our fanbase thrilled.

Let’s hope the project goes on schedule and finishes ahead of the start of the 2018/19 season.

Ryan Mason Tottenham

Ryan Mason

Former Tottenham star Ryan Mason’s football career came to a premature end after he picked up a skull fracture while playing for Hull City.

The former Spurs was facing Chelsea and hung his boots in 2018 but is adored by many fans.

Now 27, the midfielder shared a video of him scoring a goal for us four years ago and what a strike it was from the Englishman.

This was Mason’s first goal for Spurs and it came in a League Cup fixture against Nottingham Forest.

The midfielder might not have been the most gifted player ever but he always gave 100% on the pitch and his move to Hull City, unfortunately, did not work out.

Mason played for numerous clubs in the English system, serving stints at Millwall, Yeovil Town and Doncaster Rovers.

The former Spurs star also had one cap for the England national side in 2015 and a number of fans tweeted their love for the player after his post.

“Most entertaining”, “The ending…” – Some Spurs fans love latest advert featuring accommodation partner

Vorm Eriksen Tottenham

Tottenham posted a video of their tie-up with Hotels.com, our official accommodation partner, and it was an interesting video, to say the least.

Spurs players Christian Eriksen, Michel Vorm, Ben Davies and Juan Foyth participated in some “hotel-related” drills in the two-minute long ad.

It was fun to see Eriksen and co carrying luggage around an obstacle course while the Dane also dropped drinks glasses from his tray.

There were a few laughs too as Vorm wasn’t able to fold the quilt in the right manner and some of the fans saw the funny side of the video.

Tottenham haven’t started the season well and were lucky to get all three points against Brighton in our previous game. However, it was nice to see the players having a great time in the fun advert.

The video certainly was done pretty well and the ending is something to behold too.

Jack Grealish

Jack Grealish

Jack Grealish has signed a new five-year deal with Aston Villa that includes a huge release clause, according to the Sun.

The report adds that Tottenham offered £25million for the midfielder in the summer. But to sign him now, we would have to double the amount.

Grealish was one of the stars for the Villans last season but they missed out on promotion to the Premier League.

Villa aren’t doing well in the Championship as they lie 13th with 13 points from nine games. Grealish is yet to score for his boyhood club in the ongoing term.

With his selling price doubled, as per the report, some Tottenham fans weren’t sure about the club making a move for the player while a few blamed Daniel Levy for botching the transfer.
