Not sure how true it all is but bugger getting back through the tunnel from Brighton, Ipswich wins hands down for me.
Personally I still think the obvious choices are either to share with West Ham or Share with Arsenal, They shared ours during the war after all. Mind you it's probably them that oblect come to think of it.

This probably belongs in the "unpopular opinions" thread in Spurs Chat but we should have gone down the route of sharing a Stadium with the gooners years ago. We'd have a new Stadium by now at half the cost. If it's good enough for Inter/Milan and Roma/Lazio then it should be good enough for us and Arsenal.

You then have to ask yourself why those clubs are now looking to have their own separate grounds.

If they're doing requests, Willesden Sports Centre is only round the corner from me. It's a plastic pitch but I could pop into the steam room after.
It's a poor surface though,mk the best option for a temporary ground.Wembley would be a disaster the goons suffered there when they played in the CL.
Mk , probably got the best train service back to London out of all the options.

How many WHL regulars actually live in London though?

The goons suffered at Wembley because it was a lot wider than Highbury and their defence was caught out as they struggled to close teams down.

Of the 3, Ipswich is by far the best for me as I live in Norwich. The others would be a total nightmare - in fact, Brighton would result in me having to give up my season ticket for the time we were there.
I have just moved to Cromer from Watford, So Ipswich would be perfect for me as well..

I do think that the problem with Wembley Stadium is that it is such a famous stadium all over the world and leads to the other teams raising their game as well

Bullshit.

A season away from WHL will be awful for the local businesses, the local council will hopefully add their weight to out cause.

What's our groundsman going to do? They'll probably give him a years holiday, lucky bastard.
