Tottenham are increasingly optimistic that they will play in their new stadium before the end of the season — and that Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Arsenal was their final domestic fixture at Wembley this year.

They kept saying this
on the BT Sport commentary
on the NLD.
Is there any actual evidence
or is it pure speculation?

We only ever play 1 home pre season game yet people keep saying itll be good to get it in at the new stadium?

What would have been ideal would have been to have, say, a 10 point lead over 4th then move in with leeway to adjust
But we fucked that good and fucking proper.

I would imagine it gets down to money, it will cost significantly less to play at our stadium rather than at Wembley.

Agreed, mate.

I reckon we need 78pts to finish top 4 this season. 9 games left, two of which are against City and Liverpool. If we don't get anything from those (although I fancy that we might frustrate one of them!) then that leaves us needing 5 wins and 2 draws from the remaining fixtures.

Very very little margin for error - and simply cannot afford to mess this up given the massive need to attract a handful of top quality signings this summer.

A handful of signings is very optimistic! Apart from that, totally agree.

We'll go another summer without signing anyone unless we sell 2 to 3 including big players like Eriksen.
If no one of any value goes, no one comes.
