Tottenham’s new stadium has been a bit of a joke on social media as rival fans and some of our own have lambasted the design of our new home.
There was so much hype regarding the stadium but a number of people on social media ended up calling it a toilet seat, something that some of our fans have not taken to lightly.
While Spurs have shared a number of updates about the stadium and how amazing the experience inside the stadium will be, there is still some work to be done before we can claim that the stadium is complete.
Our first game in the new stadium would be against Liverpool and the fans would be excited about taking on the Reds. However, before that clash, our fans came took Twitter to defend the stadium and take on some rival fans too.
While arsenal fans joke about an aerial shot that nobody will ever see. Let’s talk about how close spurs stadium is to the pitch. Who’s laughing now and absolutely nothing you can do about it for another 100 years 😂😂 pic.twitter.com/qv9udImHEZ

Tottenham face competition from PSG for this 24-year-old Premier League defender
The Ivorian hasn’t seen much playing time for United this season with only four starts to his name. His last game for the club was the 3-2 win over Newcastle United which came over a month ago.
The defender could be a quality addition to the side but Mauricio Pochettino has to work with Bailly to get the best out of him.
It has been a sapping time for the 24-year-old at United and the report adds that Spurs were tipped to sign the player having not signed anyone in the summer window.
The report adds that the United chiefs are set to meet to discuss the Ivorian’s situation. It will be interesting to see if United are willing to let go of the player, especially to a Premier League rival.
Tottenham are five points behind Manchester City after 12 games and face Chelsea one we return to Premier League action in a week’s time.
Pochettino has done a great job with the same set of players from last season, but we need to add some fresh faces to develop the team.

Our next game is against Chelsea after the break is over, but it seems Pochettino wanted to keep an eye out for future talents from the Catalan side.

A report from Sky Sports adds that the gaffer and his coaching staff, Toni Jimenez and Jesus Perez, would be travelling to Barcelona for a conference to represent the Catalan Football Federation.
The Argentine was quoted (h/t Sky Sports) saying:
“The Catalan Federation asked us to go there and talk with the Catalan coaches, and I think it is a great opportunity to share, and explain how the Premier League is and Tottenham.”
Spanish reports (h/t Sky Sports) claim Pochettino could have been at the game to scout some Barcelona players.
Sky Sports adds that Spurs were interested in Barca B star Riqui Puig, who did play in the match Pochettino saw.
The manager knows the Spanish league well from his time at Espanyol, and given the history between Barcelona and his former employers, it will be interesting to see if we do snap someone up from the Catalan giants.
Spurs didn’t sign any players in the summer window and our winter activity could decide if we go on to win a trophy or not this season.
“It is definitely possible” – Harry Kane believes he can break this record for England
The former Manchester United striker played his last England game in our 3-0 win over the United States. Rooney ended his international career with 53 goals from 120 games.
Kane, for his part, has 19 goals for the Three Lions and was asked if he could break Rooney’s scoring record (h/t BT Sport).
“It is definitely possible.
“It is still a fair bit away, I don’t like to set my targets that far ahead in the future because a lot can happen.
“We will see over the years how many goals I have got. Hopefully I will still be fit and healthy and getting selected by the manager.
“It is achievable but not something I’m thinking about too much right now.”
The clash against Croatia would be a repeat of the World Cup semi which England lost. A win over the Croatians would send England into the semi-finals of the UEFA Nations League but the away side will come with a lot of confidence.
Croatia defeated Spain in their last game, and Gareth Southgate has to be wary of the threat from the away side.
Kane will be one of the key players in this clash, and hopefully, he will score a few goals at Wembley.
