I don't want to be pedantic but I will be, I'm tired of saying it but Newham is not in the EAST END!!!!
Why can't people get this??

Its East London to me!
Indeed it is but if someone doesn't know the difference they can't argue any point about North or East London, if you can call Newham the East End then you can call it North London.
To be honest I wasn't moaning from a Spurs/football point really I just get pissed off by the ignorance of London.

Video raised some good points .

A move to Stratford means the end of Tottenham Hotspur for many of us .

Whatever club was playing in Stratford , it wouldn't be Tottenham Hotspur anymore , it would be a new entity .

Doesn't take many people thinking along those lines and the new stadium won't even be getting the 36k we get today .

Does that part of London need a new club when they've already got Leyton Orient and West Ham ?


I sincerely hope Levy sees sense and pulls out from making the biggest mistake in the clubs history .

Rubbish that we won't be Tottenham Hotspur. It's 6 miles up the road, 6. That's spitting distance and to say we're not the same club after moving that distance is petty.

So are Everton not Everton because they don't actually play there? are Millwall not Millwall because they don't play there?

More or less all the postcodes there begin with E, so Newham is part of East London. Its not North London.

I was waiting for the Levy Out bit. Amazed they managed to contain themselves for 4 minutes before planting that one.

We're looking as whiny as scousers.
