On the one hand I’m surprised this has become a thing, on the other given social media I’m not at all surprised but Tottenham Hotspur’s decision to launch an NFL themed Spurs shirt to promote the fact we plan to host American Football games at the new White Hart Lane hasn’t gone over well with many in the fanbase.

It’s a decent enough design I think and if you’re into that kind of thing, crack on I guess, it’s certainly not as daft as the half and half scarves and other things we see these days in the game, and personally I’m off the belief if you like it buy it, and if you object to the £95 price tag, then put simply don’t buy it.
I won’t be.
I can however more than understand that after the announcement we were contributing £250k to Richard Scudamore’s pension pot as well as other claims that we won’t be in the new stadium until March, well the timing could certainly have been better when it comes to those fans who are a little bit more vociferous in their criticism and frustrations at things off the pitch.
95 quid? NINETY-FIVE?!

Enic & Levy rinsing fans since 2000. I suppose it’s their way of trying to recoup their £250k donation to Scudamore.

This is a new low.

Is there no depths that this club won't stoop to, to make money selling what used to be our great name? This club lied to ST holders and is now refunding their money drip by drip for a stadium we won't be able to use for a very long time. Do you have no shame?

Who actually thought this was a good idea?
