Hi there. It's been a very long time since I have been to WHL. What was Tottenham Hale station like after the game against palace?

As I come in from Somerset these days, I decided to park in Hornsey where I used to live for a while, and then got my bike out the back of the car and cycled about 15 mins down to the ground, dropped off my bike in the rack at the school across from the stadium.

Then took me 10 mins back to Wood Green, stop to have a chicken shish with all the trimmings at one of the great Turkish restaurants there, and back to my car.

Aiming to take my son tomorrow after a ticket became available. Will therefore be driving to the game (rather than getting the train and staying for the Neck Oil after!!!!) from Stevenage - any tips on parking? Am thinking about driving to Cheshunt and then getting the train down to either WHL or Northumberland PK. Does anyone know if street parking is an option near the station - Delamare Road was mentioned as a possibility?

Alternatively, I saw someone mention Ikea at Edmonton earlier in the thread - is it viable to park there and then walk or are there match day restrictions?

For anyone else who might be thinking of doing the same, Ikea worked well for us today - fairly easy access in and out, with a 25 minute slow walk each way. It was of course an early kick off on a Saturday so buyer beware but it worked well for us today.

What I really found annoying today was that I got to Northumberland station at 2:45 when the train to Bishop Stortford was there. The train to Cambridge however wasn't due until 3:15. That's far too long a gap if you're going beyond Bishop Stortford. It's pointless getting that train to Stortford when you just have to wait there for the 3:15 Cambridge train to get there anyway. Anglia really need to sort that out and get trains running a lot sooner Cambridge bound.

They had a new system of queue and control at Northumberland park yesterday which worked better, It's very likely there were fewer people than on Tuesday but it was a step in the right direction.

For the game yesterday, I left the house at noon, got to the stadium in ten minutes. I love living so close to the stadium, but then again I live in Tottenham. :ROFLMAO:

A few fans I know park near to Bush Hill Park Station, then take the train down. Sounds like a decent option.

Driving tomorrow, earmarked Ikea as the possible parking spot due to previous recommendations in this thread.

Is there are time limit on the parking and are there barriers closing the carpark at night

So the Sainsbury's next to the stadium has a car park underneath, and I believe they have a valet system of sorts which is run by the club. Just as an FYI, do not use them. The valets are essentially kids who have never driven such an expensive and powerful car before. Some of the driving I witnessed whilst they attempted to move cars and find parking spaces was simply appalling. The number of times the shits kept hitting these cars onto the kerb was unbelieveable. The club should really look into who they are hiring for these roles, looks extremely amateurish.

Am I the only one that thinks that when TFL or rail companies need a days work that needs station closures for one day they choose the day that spurs are at home of all the times and dates available .
It has happened so many times that seven sisters and white hart lane stations are closed on spurs match days that I am feeling paranoid and even our first friendly at home is affected with WHL station closed for Sundays friendly. Weird or unlucky or planned make your own mind up.

Engineering works are basically every weekend so bound to affect football unfortunately. We view it as adversely affecting large numbers of people but, relative to weekday commuter numbers, we're insignificant.

Not gonna happen I'm afraid. They weren't that interested in an extension to begin with because it makes the Victoria Line much more burdensome to operate if you add a brance, risking issues and delays across the whole line. The silver lining is that they're definitely not interested now because eventually Crossrail 2 will come to Tottenham, providing a huge capacity boost, and making a Viccy extension near-redundant only a few years after it'd have been built.
