It has become clear over recent times that the board of Tottenham Hotspur are seriously considering
a potential move to the Olympic Stadium Site in Stratford as an alternative to the redevelopment of
White Hart Lane and remaining in Tottenham/Haringey.
It seems there are many reasons for this and that, at least in public, a final decision has yet to
be made. However, the concept of such a move has upset many, but the collective voice of those
supporters has yet to have been expressed.
I understand the club may feel it needs a 'Plan B' alternative, however, as the costs appear to
rise, despite receiving planning permission for the 'Northumberland Development Project' it seems
the cheaper option of a move becomes ever more real, particularly in view of our tie-up with AEG,
who, i quote, 'do not back losers'.
I am one who would prefer to remain at White Hart Lane in Tottenham, as it stands today, rather than
move to Stratford chasing the revenue from a larger stadium. Such a move would, for me, destroy
Tottenham and all it has stood for the day we leave our home.
We need a larger stadium, but we need it in our home and I for one would rather wait to acheive
that, as we have done until now, rather than leave for East London.
I urge anyone who feels the same way to sign this petition, so that we might go to Daniel Levy and
the Spurs board with one united voice should the decision ever be taken to leave/
I will leave you with one thought, if you aren't sure how you feel:
Imagine sitting down on a Saturday to watch the greatest London Derby, before you find out there is
only one North London club and they play in Red. The advert pops up for the 'East London Derby' a
'grudge match' between Spurs and West Ham. Would football ever really be the same again?
