This is nothing more than to take White Hart Lane out of the lexicon.As someone who used to live a 2 minute walk from the station it feels a bit...icky. The football club is a major part of the local community but the community is more than just Spurs.
Hotspur, not Hotspurs.I'm not really invested in the question, but this is pure cynicism. Only for commercial reasons, you can't have the stadium be "New sponsored stadium name, home of Tottenham Hotspurs", and the closest train station be "Old stadium name".
Yeah, that was always my preferred route - quite a walk but preferable to queuing for ages at WHL.Does anyone really care what a train station is called?
I haven't commuted into or out of WHL station since about the 2009 season anyway. I go to SS then walk as I come in from London Victoria.
Also, White Hart Lane is the name of the road that the station is on. It was never just the name of our football ground.I'd much rather have White Hart Lane. The stadium will be branded and named after some faceless Corporation whereas White Hart Lane was always part of the local community and culture. Seems like an attempt to remove it from the history books which is rather sad.
