Tottenham Hotspur fans in the Transfer Tavern have been handed some worrying news as they prepare for next season.
Spurs are expected to move back to White Hart Lane for the beginning of this season, yet reports are starting to suggest that it could be unlikely to happen and that they may have to remain at Wembley Stadium.
And that’s because The Daily Mail are reporting that the North London outfit’s new super-stadium could not be ready for occupancy in time for the start of the campaign.
As such, the FA have reportedly given them an extended deadline on whether they want to remain at Wembley for the 2018/19 season, where Mauricio Pochettino’s men enjoyed reasonable success this time round in losing just two of their 19 Premier League games at the national stadium.
Nonetheless, this update is unlikely to delight our resident Spurs fans, with it looking increasingly likely that their team will be playing at Wembley again next time round.
Landlord’s Verdict: The news will be damaging to Tottenham if their new stadium is not ready in time for the beginning of the season.
Spurs are expected to be able to play their first three league games away from home, yet if White Hart Lane is not ready by then, they will not be able to use it.
It would be a financial disaster for the club, having already sold thousands of season tickets, whilst the NFL have reportedly scheduled a fixture to take place there in October.
The locals in the Tavern will hope it does not have an effect on Pochettino’s plans to bring in players for the upcoming campaign, yet the news has come at a horrible time for the club.
Tottenham fans… what do you make of the news? Let us know!
