Spurs are a team from Tottenham and should play in Tottenham, otherwise they would just become a brand with no real identity (like Manchester United). The new ground will be built and, importantly, will benefit Tottenham. Hopefully the area our club is from will get the sort of regeneration so far reserved for the Arsenal and West Ham heartlands. Archway are a disgrace and obviously have no concern for the place in which they are based. They will make money and I suppose that is all they are concerned with.
Why is Manchester United any more of a "brand with no identity" than us? If you're talking about location, they've been in Manchester since they were founded and at Old Trafford for over 100 years. If you're talking about commercial activities, etc. - don't you think we're trying to build exactly the same kind of "brand"?

They have never been in Manchester, they are in Greater Manchester. Their council is Trafford whereas City's is Manchester Council. In no time in their over 100 years have they ever been in Manchester.

So.....

anyone has dealings with "Archway Sheet Metal Works Ltd and the Josif Family"?

time to boycott the company, show them the power of the people.

not enough brains to keep their names out of the press.

Archway are totally chasing a lost cause. Regeneration is too big an issue to be held to ransom by Archway. As Levy says spurs have relocated 70 businesses and no problems.. just this one greedy family.. They will lose their appeal, and pay costs of spurs and them. Levy will pay the minimum he can now.. they should have learned years ago.. don't try to play business hard ball with Daniel Levy !! . Wembley seems the place for us to go for a year.. Cant see a share at OS ...

Would be interested in hearing davidmatzdorf's take on this.

Is this something that would normally take an age to resolve?

Any idea on what grounds they might be appealing on. in this sort of circumstance?

Can anyone advise with this now going to court would the be Judge simply stating how much compensation is to be paid to Archway, or does the Judge have the power to nix the whole project altogether?

If its the former, the cost of a happy-meal would be considered 'too-much' for those wankers.

Wembley would be the preferred option, if we can.

So remember everybody that's Archway Sheet Metal works of 1-3 Paxton Road N17.....cant wait for next home game!
Yea and they probably use the abuse from our fans and etc to show that the new stadium isn't good as it will increase the amount of antisocial behaviour as well as seeking some potentially bullshit charges depending on what happens
