It was a year ago today the first ‘proper’ game took place at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium as we beat Man City 1-0 in the Champions League.
A report in The Times has claimed that Spurs still have a outstanding loan of £637m to pay back, to cover the costs of building our new home.
That’s the equivalent of three Harry Kanes and two Son Heung-mins.
But thankfully we have the time to defer drastic fundraising action in the transfer market as it is understood we have 23 years to pay off the debt.
That is £30m a year, which is easier to stomach until you realise that £30m is going to be cut from the player recruitment fund for every season.
The best stadium in Europe, which it undoubtedly is in my totally non-biased opinion, was supposed to be Daniel Levy’s legacy but that legacy is looking like a quarter-century of debt paying and shorting us on transfers.
