It was being reported yesterday evening that Tottenham Hotspur could be targeting the home Premier League clash against Burnley as our first proper outing to our new stadium after a summer of discontent.
A date of December 15 would tie in with manager Mauricio Pochettino’s earlier comments that he expected, and had been led to believe, we would now certainly be in the new White Hart Lane prior to the New Year but there are a number of questions that remain open to answer should the club be willing.
Why was the original date missed by such a margin?
Why was it called a safety certificate issue with talk of wiring when we didn’t even have the pitch down for a few more weeks?
And those are the two off the top of my head, but it’s enough to give an impression.
With the anger amongst many in the fanbase for how they feel they have been treated and led up the garden path, Spurs could do far worse than make this date happen and Daniel Levy fronts up, apologises for mistakes that weren’t in his control and admits that mistakes were made under our control to ensure a line is drawn so everyone can enjoy what we want to be a successful second half to the season.
