    Thought they only had veto over their first season? If so, the decision for the next season would be cook all to do with them. Allow?

    "There remain local issues about land purchase for other property developments required to fund the project."

    So it is not just Archway, it seems.....

    The only reason I'd love to have a season there is to set the attendance record against Arsenal then keep it forever.

    Other than that rather go to Wembley

    Not sure why Wembley is even being mentioned as Brent Council will never let us play 19 home games there?
    There is a restriction on the number of events allowed at Wembley as well.
    I hope Levy is preparing the way to get the tax payer funded OS for us at a fee of £2m for the season.

    I thought that the restriction was for 'full' stadium events. Supposedly you can get round it by restricting attendance to 40/50 thousand.

    Probably refering to Love Lane and Tottenham Way. Which would be between Harringay and the local residents/businesses not Spurs. Also the redevelopment of the Highroad will need some CPO's. Spurs own everything needed to build the stadium and enabling works. But the whole of Tottenham is being redeveloped.

    .. and yet it said ".... to fund the project".

    That was posted back in October, and nothing has been mentioned since,
    so maybe they are not significant planning issues.
    Or maybe all our efforts are currently focussed on the potential NFL modifications,
    and we'll tackle the other issues later.

    We are also building other stuff away from the stadium. We built a block of flats and a school I believe. As said we have lots of property around Tottenham.

    I never said we ran the school or will fund it. Read the article.

    Their fans are obsessive and will sell that stadium out every week for a few years just because it's a new stadium.

    Is this the right place?

    Wembley is being talked about as a 15-20m venue.

    It actually says if the win the Champions League.... It's a bit like a deal I used to strike on Football Manager where I would offer £50m when a centre back scores 50 international goals

    sorry, misread. Even so, hilarious.


    Olympic Stadium and West Ham tenancy deal - pg 46: Taxpayer to pay for heating,lighting, power, pitch in good condition, goals, goal nets.

    Yeah it's even more hilarious, inserting a clause that's never likely to trigger a payment but look like a better deal...

    There are also clauses for if they win Wimbledon or the Grand National.
