Difficult to get excited about stadium updates for a number of reasons.

  1. Most normal human beings aren’t excited by architectural updates. Unless they are actual architects, of course.
  2. Chris Cowlin looks like a cross between a 1980s estate agent and serial killer.

Sources close to Tottenham Hotspur Football Club are suggesting to the Harry Hotspur blog that March is the next pit stop on the abysmal, abusive and exploitative stadium journey*

*Levyologist wording, NOT mine

It’s my understanding that the appropriate folks from the London Fire Brigade will be ushered in again next month and backroom staff for the club will once again be clutching rosary beads and dismembered pieces of rabbit.

Anyone still defending ENIC at this point wants their head testing.

ENIC are STILL trying to correct the endless foul-ups that they so personally oversaw during this build.

This GIGANTIC waste of money should have been opened and fully functioning back in September last year.

Had we stayed at The Lane and spent a modest amount in the last 2 transfer windows, we could have probably have won the league this season.

But winning is for losers.

    Couldn’t agree more. What sort of idiot would sanction a billion pound spend on a stadium in an era where matchday revenues are almost an irrelevance? How long is it going to take the additional bums on seats to pay off the debt? I can’t believe Levy gets such an easy time in the press – can no one else see the emperors new clothes?

    Harry Hotspur
    Christian Eriksen is gone next summer.
    Cheerio.

    Are we buying Messi?

    • Harry Hotspur February 6, 2019 at 6:46 am

      Close, it’s getting messier

    • Tappaspur February 6, 2019 at 7:58 am

      We never sold messi. He’s only gone out to Holland on loan. He’ll be back. πŸ™‚

        Southgate. I know you know all about murcus’s ability. On your German trips go check out Marcus too and tell him. “You can still make the euros son. Knuckle down.

    • Spurswizard February 6, 2019 at 8:18 am

      Poch is going too. That’s why he didn’t want to spend in January

  • East Stand February 5, 2019 at 10:27 pm

    We will not play a competitive game there until next season. This has been blatantly obvious since around September.

    All of this was planned…

    • Paddio February 5, 2019 at 10:31 pm

      Irony is it wasn’t planned just out done by calamity

  • Billy the yid February 5, 2019 at 9:41 pm

    Could be worse. Don’t forget our esteemed leader wanted to fuck off to Stratford…. He’d have spent big then, on a new yacht for a certain old person….

  • Tappaspur February 5, 2019 at 8:29 pm

    Imagine if the fans at Wembley on Sunday never spent a single penny there in protest. No tills ringing. Levy would be shook. No sales πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

    “Had we stayed at The Lane and spent a modest amount in the last 2 transfer windows, we could have probably have won the league this season.”

    Actually all we had to do was

    1. Bin Trippier

    2. Replace him with someone as good as Rose and right footed

    • Harry Hotspur February 5, 2019 at 7:41 pm

      If we put Trippier in a bin, we’ll get sued by the council for fly tipping commercial waste.

      • onedavemackay February 5, 2019 at 8:02 pm

        What’s commercial about him?

        • Harry Hotspur February 6, 2019 at 6:49 am

          Bleedin typo. Misspelled ‘comical’

  • onedavemackay February 5, 2019 at 7:23 pm

    Nobody will be talking about stadium delays in a years time but many will be talking about Spurs having the best football stadium in Europe.

    Though I’ve heard there is no cheese shop as THFC didn’t want to offend any fans of a Vegan persuasion

    • Tappaspur February 5, 2019 at 7:26 pm

      And the trophies. πŸ™‚

    • Harry Hotspur February 5, 2019 at 7:40 pm

      So if I spend a billion quid on a new garage, it’ll turn my Volvo into a Rolls Royce, yeah?

      #triffic

      • onedavemackay February 5, 2019 at 8:01 pm

        You told me you replaced the Volvo with a pony and trap !?!

        • Harry Hotspur February 6, 2019 at 6:51 am

          ‘Cohen dead, Volve for sale’

      • Tappaspur February 5, 2019 at 8:03 pm

        So we’re volvos now? Hardly. Top of the range merc maybe. we aint no volvos

    Christian Eriksen is gone next summer.

    Cheerio.

    • Only Me February 5, 2019 at 6:59 pm

      Fact or theory? I.e good source ITK or theory based on him not being a complete mug and believing levy will actually support the team next season? I mean 3rd,2nd,3rd and what looks like 3rd again on a worse transfer policy than those getting relegated. Most chairman would be “wow… one or two top purchases and we are champs…” levy goes “fuck me, champs league money at championship investment! “

      • Harry Hotspur February 5, 2019 at 7:15 pm

        Fact, allegedly.

        He’s the catalyst for a big spend up, ala Bale.

        • Accy February 5, 2019 at 7:18 pm

          Read the same elsewhere. There was no warchest. Eriksen’s sale IS the warchest.

          • Lilywhite without the II February 5, 2019 at 7:20 pm

            Assume Grealish is still available 😩

          • Is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? February 5, 2019 at 7:23 pm

            That means Levy’s going to try and buy half a team again on the cheap with 1 stars fee. Ohhhhhhh…now I can see what all the Levybotomees were talking about when they said knocking down the Lane to allow the big bowl will mean the team can sign big stars…..

            Wait??….ENIC are doing exactly the same as before??

            Yes. Of course.

            • Is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? February 5, 2019 at 7:29 pm

              At least the Raiders or some such will eventually have the best stadium in Europe.

              • Tappaspur February 5, 2019 at 7:36 pm

                Ker ching. Its not only residential properties that sub let to help pay the mortgage. It’s how it goes now mate. The atmosphere and football will be good there. Thats all that matters on match days. Gonna be some big noise. πŸ™‚

          • Harry Hotspur February 5, 2019 at 7:40 pm

            Yup.

          • East Stand February 6, 2019 at 8:40 am

            Sounds just about how Levy likes to roll. Uncle Joe’s wallet still stapled shut after 17 years, while Baldy rakes in 9m a year for winning nothing.

            Thank fuck for the micro brewery eh?!

        • paul February 5, 2019 at 8:17 pm

          Tin tin mentally checked out of chez THFC about 5 or 6 games ago. He’s gone.

          • Paddio February 5, 2019 at 10:12 pm

            Since World Cup if you look at his twitter page profile and banner pictures

          • Harry Hotspur February 6, 2019 at 6:47 am

            Utterly depressing, virtually everything he has done for the last month has been a token gesture

      Is next summer this one, or the one after?, me thinks it depends when and where your summer is. I’m in Canada. But my next summer in Argentina is just ending. Erikssen is in London and their next summer won’t be until 2022

      • Lilywhite without the II February 5, 2019 at 7:16 pm

        There is never a summer in Blighty so I can only assume he means the summer of 69, and I have no idea where Brian Adam resides now?

      I don’t care If he don’t care. See ya mate. Levy. rinse that “special relationship w a n k e r! Go a bit easier with barca.

  • Tappaspur February 5, 2019 at 6:29 pm

    People who are turned on by amazing architecture and engineering are “excited by it. The only thing Tottenham about the stadium is the pitch. No Tottenham logs in the bowl apart from digital ones. Its an entertainment arena. They all will be one day.
