    Here we go. No signings in but no first team players have left.

    Looking forward to going to the new White Hart Lane.

    Is the stadium ready? I passed a couple of days ago and there were a fair few cranes up still

    Is that what it's officially called? I think the all-team pre-season guide I read dubbed it "The Tottenham Stadium", although I'd be surprised if they didn't attach a sponsor name to it to help pay the mortgage.

    Not sure but I'm not going in for any sponsorship name nonsense. Its the new White Hart Lane for me and I think my first visit is for the derby (ticket TBC!).

    Apart from the extra cost of hiring Wembley until Christmas, Spurs could also be in for a fine from the Premier League. The rules are that all sides are obligated to play home games for a season at one venue. They're already starting the season with the maximum number of away games allowed (4), but playing at least two home games at Wembley before moving to the new stadium puts them in the do-do.

    I didn't know that. I did read it's not going to be ready when they thought so the Liverpool match is going to be at Wembley.

    Oh, I see Spurs had already arranged to play their first home match against Fulham at Wembley this coming Saturday thus infringing the Premier League rules as I understand them. I thought they'd asked to play their first four games away from home while the new ground was made ready (West Ham and Liverpool did similar in recent years).

    The issue of Spurs (or any other PL club) playing home matches at more than one ground came up a few years ago and the PL were very clear in saying it wasn't on.

    Tottenham told Premier League home matches must all be at one ground

    like they'll get in any trouble.

    They sent private investigators to go through bins, the premises holding up the redevelopment had a mysterious fire. PL rules??? Ha, they shit em.

    The atmosphere creating sub woofers to compensate for lack of atmosphere were placed inside the wrong walls and need to be replaced.
