    I'm not - for two reasons:
    (1) If it's a Spurs fan that has done this, it will reflect badly on the club
    (2) if there is a criminal investigation and it ends up with the prosecution of someone, it could delay work on the stadium (bearing in mind that it's likely they would have lost the court hearing).

    I doubt they'll ever prove who did it.
    You should be more worried that their insurance agrees to reinstate the property and spend a year or more doing so.

    Until that's confirmed, I'll worry more about potential delays to our (already very protracted) stadium build.

    I very much doubt that any insurance company would agree to pay to rebuild on a site that has a CPO on it, even if the CPO is being challenged.

    Yikes....the sad thing is that whilst Archway have every right to fight for their property, the more they pushed this, the more chance there was that some idiot would try and take matters into their own hands to try and help to get them out.

    Obviously it's all speculation at the moment and we have no idea whether it was arson or an accident but you can't help but feel suspicious, especially knowing how utterly stupid some people can be.

    Of course the other side of the coin is. Knowing they would probably lose the CPO. Archway decided to maximise their payout with an insurance job, plus the money from the CPO Very easy to blame somebody else.

    anyone could have done this with Archway stoking the flames or it could have been a timely accident. If Archway have to move elsewhere to continue running their business then I suspect the insurance company will pay out what the building is worth and then own the property and sell to us. I think that's the best scenario.

    Could just as easily be an insurance scam as arson by an outsider

    If they get an Insurance payout, the land is no longer theirs, therefore I don't think they would get get CPO payout.
