Football is finally coming home for Tottenham fans. After almost two full seasons at Wembley Stadium, the Lilywhites will be returning to N17. The first game at the new stadium has been confirmed by the club for April 3rd against Crystal Palace, and Tottenham fans are already fearing the worst for the clash.

Whilst Tottenham fans may be quietly panicking that they’re set to be embarrassed in front of the watching world when their stadium is finally opened for business, the news that they’re set to leave Wembley is fantastic. With every home game at the national stadium the unrest around their homelessness grew, and as they return the fans cannot wait to get their identity back.
In the Lilywhites’ final season at the old White Hart Lane, they went throughout the entire Premier League campaign unbeaten at home. That is the kind of record that they want to be able to boast at the new place too, and with a tough run-in between now and the end of the season there really is no reason why moving back home can’t be the momentum boost they needed in the race for the top four. However, the fans lack of confidence could be taken as a worrying sign from the tweets below.

Can’t wait for this. Zaha to score first and Palace win 2-0 is the only Tottenham way to do it

Despite the positive news that the fans have been waiting ages for, the Lilywhites have still managed to put a negative spin on things and don’t look confident of grabbing a win in their grand opening.
