The new Tottenham stadium

Whilst Spurs fans may feel as though their new ground took an eternity to build, we’re sure they’ll agree that the finished result was well-worth the wait.

In total, the new stadium is thought to have , which is a little more than the £789 million required to build Wembley.

It’s also double the original budget for the project, with the Spurs hierarchy having spent heavily in the pursuit of their dream stadium.

Cutting-edge tech is at the heart of this new ‘stadium of the future’ but there’s a few things about Pochettino side’s new dwellings that you may well not know.

Here are 4 quirky features of Tottenham’s new ground:

  1. A Cheese Room

Let’s start with the most surreal feature, which exists in the form of an exclusive cheese room for members and high-end clientele.

Known simply as the ‘H Club’ members can sign up for a hefty subscription fee of £15,000, although they’ll be required to purchase two tickets for a total expenditure of £30,000.

This will enable them to select their own specially sourced half-time cheeses, including some of the most unique and luxurious products from across the globe.

  • A Microbrewery

New White Heart Lane (NWHT) will also include another football stadium first, in the thrilling form of a microbrewery with a state-of-the-art beer delivery system.

A football hipster’s dream, this brewery uses equipment that can pour up to 10,000 pints per minute, which is ideal when catering for the half-time and post-game rush.

Whilst we’d expect to see other stadiums adopt this type of technology in the future, for now Spurs’ new ground remain the first and only location to take the plunge!

  • USB Ports in Seats

Spurs’ new stadium also offers exceptional 4G coverage throughout, meaning that spectators can connect online before, during, or after the game. This is particularly helpful if you like mobile or in-play betting; no longer will you be interrupted by poor signals when you’re trying to place those , which is good news!

Incredibly, designers have also included individual USB ports in premium seats, enabling supporters to charge their handsets and prevent their phones from running out of battery over the course of 90 minutes.

  • An In-house Bakery

We close with one of our personal favourites, and one that really highlights the attention to detail that defined Spurs’ new stadium plans.

We’re speaking, of course, about the stadium’s very own in-house bakery, which is capable of producing artisan breads and pastries for every food outlet in the stadium. So, whether you’re in a VIP box or a general admission area, you’ll be able to enjoy delicious pastries and treats during the half-time break.

For those of us used to soggy pies, all we can really say to this is wow because having access to such leading outlets adds a unique dimension to the typical stadium experience.

Tottenham’s new ground is a blazing a trail for all others to follow in the future, Daniel Levy and co have set the bar and to explore the new ground in more detail, .

Ditching a corporate job to follow a dream isn’t easy, but when football comes calling, who can say no? Been following the beautiful game since 1998.

AS Roma reject move from Tottenham for Edin Dzeko

Tottenham’s move to sign Edin Dzeko has been rejected by AS Roma, according to Corriere dello Sport (h/t Calciomercato).

The two-time Premier League winner left Manchester City for Roma close to three years ago. Dzeko has been one of the top performers for the Serie A giants and has eight goals and two assists for them this season.

The 33-year-old was decent during his time at Manchester, and the report claims that Tottenham see him as the perfect back-up for Harry Kane.

The Englishman has been in great touch under Jose Mourinho, but we don’t have senior cover for the striker.

Troy Parrott could get some minutes if Kane needs a break while Son Heung-min and Lucas Moura cal also lead the line.

Roma have no intention of selling Dzeko

The Bosnian has scored 95 goals for Roma and they have said that the striker is not for sale (h/t Calciomercato).

Tottenham could do with another striker coming in with us allowing two senior forwards to leave in the previous summer.

Mourinho could do with more players coming in the January window, and it will be interesting to see what his plans are.

Spurs have been better under him than Mauricio Pochettino, however, we are far from the final product.

Jose Mourinho hopeful of keeping Tory Parrott at Tottenham

Troy Parrott is one of the brightest talents at Tottenham. The 17-year-old Irish striker made his Premier League debut in the 5-0 win over Burnley and had featured in the Carabao Cup defeat at Colchester too.

The forward has already played for the Irish senior side, and there are great things expected from him.

However, the youngster has only 18 months left on his contract and has attracted the interest from several European clubs (h/t Sun).

Jose Mourinho is keen to keep hold of the 17-year-old and is hopeful of convincing him to stay at Tottenham, according to the Evening Standard (h/t Sun).

Mourinho has some tough decisions to take as Spurs boss. Jan Vertonghen, Christian Eriksen and Toby Alderweireld are all free agents in the summer.

Spurs need to keep hold of Parrott

The youngster is a great talent and it will interesting to see how many games he plays this season.

The report claims that Parrott could feature against Bayern Munich in the Champions League tomorrow.

Spurs can’t mix the team up much later in the season as we are out of the Carabao Cup. However, Parrott could play in the FA Cup too.

Mourinho has changed things around since replacing Mauricio Pochettino and dealing with Parrott is one of his biggest challenges at the moment.

Tottenham keeping tabs on Galatasaray striker Vedat Muriqi

Tottenham are one of several clubs interested in 25-year-old forward Vedat Muriqi, according to Sporx (h/t Sun).

The lanky forward scored against England for Kosovo in a Euro 2020 qualifier and has been prolific for Galatasaray too.

Muriqi has scored nine goals and provided two assists from 13 Turkish league games this season.

The centre-forward has six goals and two assists for Kosovo over the past season and is great in the air.

The report claims that we are interested in signing a back-up for Harry Kane but there are others keen on the 25-year-old.

Leicester City are interested in the Kosovo striker but so are Lazio, Frankfurt and Monaco (h/t Sun).

Spurs could do with cover for Kane given that we allowed Fernando Llorente and Vincent Janssen to leave in the previous summer window.

We didn’t sign any replacements and that could be a problem if Kane picks up an injury.

The Englishman was in great touch in the 5-0 win over Burnley and scored a brace too.

Tottenham returning to winning ways

Spurs bounced back from their defeat to Manchester United with an easy win over the Clarets.

Son Heung-min, Lucas Moura and Moussa Sissoko all scored with Kane too. We need to keep picking up the wins as Chelsea lie six points ahead of us in fourth place.

Tottenham’s defensive issues

We could do with another centre-back coming in as two of our stars are free agents in the summer.
