There was an enormous development on Thursday morning at the construction site of Tottenham Hotspur’s stadium. There are now 1,600 people working on the enormous site in Tottenham, with work taking place round the clock in order to get the ground ready for the 2018/19 season.

Also, the added pressure of hosting the first NFL game, the Seattle Seahawks vs the Oakland Raiders on October 14, means that the pace of the work has to increase day by day.

According to Football.london, the final piece of the compression ring has been lifted into place and that has seen the outer ring of the new stadium fully complete. It is fantastic news for the club and the fans, as work will finally start taking place to lift the stadium’s roof on to the compression ring.

Spurs chairman Daniel Levy has claimed that the raising of the roof this month would be a vital indicator that the stadium project is coinciding with the time scale of its inauguration before the start of the new season.

There is no doubt that the Spurs players have settled down well into their temporary home at Wembley. The game against Newport County in the FA Cup ended perfectly as Mauricio Pochettino celebrated his 200th game in charge of the club with a broad smile.

Pochettino has often spoken of the new ground’s ability to send us into Europe’s elite. So that comes as an added pressure for the workers to finish their job before the given date. Despite us settling in at Wembley, our fans are very optimistic regarding the construction of the new stadium.

The last time out, our club released a video of the world’s first retractable pitch at our new stadium. The retractable pitch is indeed one of its kind and one of the biggest reasons why our club were successful in convincing the NFL that American Football and British Football could be played in the same venue without much fuss.

It is truly a great effort by Mr.Levy and his team to ensure the work is being completed on time, with the fans across the world being kept up to date regarding the progress. I just hope the work gets completed according to the schedule so that our new season starts in the brand new £850m stadium.

“It feels like our second home” – Tottenham star unsure about staying at Wembley for the rest of the season

Christian Eriksen Tottenham

Christian Eriksen has claimed that Wembley is like a second home for Tottenham, and isn’t sure if we will stay at the stadium for the rest of the season.

Tottenham’s new ground won’t be ready this year and Daniel Levy confirmed we would be sticking to Wembley till 2019.

The club also moved to strike a deal to keep playing at Wembley till our home is completed, and Eriksen was quoted by the Sun saying:

“I don’t know if we are going to stay at Wembley for the rest of the season.

“We are happy at Wembley for more than a year now and it feels like our second home.”

The Dane added that the players couldn’t wait to play at the new ground but wanted the stadium to be perfect before the team move in.

The former Ajax star added that the professionals would be working hard to get the stadium done and the players have to concentrate on their job too.

Tottenham are fourth in the Premier League and are five points behind Manchester City, who lead the table.

Our next game is going to be a real battle as we face undefeated Chelsea. The Blues are just a point ahead of us in the Premier League, and a win will put us back in the race for the title.

Tottenham’s new stadium is inching closer to completion and we are receiving clips and pictures from various sources.

We saw Lord Alan Sugar tweet about the ground being one of the best in the world recently, and another Twitter user, AdamJ_COYS shared a number of clips of the stadium’s interior.

One of the most striking videos saw the Spurs fan capture the NFL home team and Tottenham dressing rooms.

The NFL changing rooms even have the league’s logo emblazoned on a number of areas, and we caught a glimpse of some other workers taking a snap too.

Of course, it wouldn’t be a Tottenham stadium video unless we saw what the pitch looked like and the user even captured some of the seating areas which look close to completion.

The Spurs shop is one of the biggest attractions in the new ground and a video of the same was posted as well.

Tottenham’s stadium is set to be one of the best in the world but we will have to wait a little longer before any of the matches are played in the ground.

Tottenham new stadium

Tottenham will play their remaining home games of 2018 in Wembley but consturction of our new stadium seems to be chugging along. A new video showcases the exterior of the stadium, and it does seem close to completion.

There is some work to be done in the outer section of the ground, but the roof panels seem to be installed in all the right places.

The stadium was expected to be ready by September to host Liverpool, however, the club have faced delays and Daniel Levy recently claimed that we would be staying at Wembley till the end of the year.

Further, the club have negotiated a deal to play at Wembley till the new stadium is ready, and the club is expected to provide an update on the new ground in December.

The new home looks amazing, and it will be interesting to see which club we do face once the ground is ready.

White Hart Lane was a brilliant ground to play in, especially due to the vociferous backing of the Spurs faithful.
