    We won't do anything as classy as West Ham obviously but what are you expecting or what would you like to see as we say goodbye to our Historic Stadium?

    Which Legends would you like to see?

    Who to perform?

    Etc....

    Would be great to see Gazza there if he's still alive.

    Performance wise I wonder if Adele would write a proper send off tune. Or Chas and Dave.

    I don't pay attention to West Ham really, what did they do for "The Fortress"

    I think Chas and Dave would have to give some accompaniment, and although not my cup of tea Adele would be easily convinced and would give a good send off if schedules matched up.

    A band to play McNamaras band and Can't smile with you should also feature...

    Bill Nichs relatives, surviving legends of our 60/61 team through to Bale and King then Harry - a host of our iconic players in between.

    Someone who "tweets" should get on this...

    I imagine all the usual suspects from matchdays will be there, it would be nice to see another day like King Ledley's day though, that was immense, and i expect Rafa could get the time off this time too (y)

    Deep down, i sort of hope that ol' Chirpy - proper Chirpy, the real Chirpy - has gone through rehab and would make an appearance, but i sadly doubt that'll happen.

    We are more likely to see Chas and Dave make an appearance. I think Adele is far more likely to perform when opening the new stadium. Corporates, innit.

    I hope they have more variety of ex players than the usual suspects already on the club pay roll that get trotted out currently at WHL at HT.

    Chas and Dave doing a medley of their Spurs songs in the centre circle. Levy doing a jig alongside them.

    I hope they get someone on with an Olympic medal. You can't have enough of those lot.

    If Adele was to turn up the prices for the tickets on StubHub would jump up a bit. Stick to Chas and Dave.

    Mostly I just want it to be proper Tottenham. Celebrity fans are all well and good but if they don't fit in with a Matchday crowd then bollocks to them. Michael McIntyre worked, give him a few minutes, let Mickey Hazard bawl a bit, get the 61 lads out, the lads from Ledders testimonial, let Maradona back in with Ossie and Ricky and then unveil the re-signing of Bale. Gertcha.

    They could recreate some of the iconic moments - phoenix from the flames style.
    I'm sure ardiles, and hoddle would be up for laugh and score again that classic league cup flying volley against Utd.
    Or something like it.

    I said my goodbye to WHL version.1 when I was there in September.

    A 50 year spread from 1966 to 2016 in attendances, hundred of visits to the old place. Mostly great and good visits, one or two dour and downright depressing ones. That was my time

    I live in Ireland now and won't be back anytime soon as far as I know, but then again ............

    That would be fairytale stuff. In reality though, i hope in some ways there isn't too much riding on that final game at WHL as it could be distracting for the players and fans and has the potential for a real party pooper type scenario from Mourinho.

    Maybe we could recreate the Blackburn game from a few years ago and lose 4-0, ending the game by throwing our season tickets onto the pitch?

    I'm welling up here with the nostalgia of it all... :cry:

    I'd rather the opposite. If we had a game that was just as important as saying goodbye, a title decider. Winning that would exorcise all other nightmares we have lived with and would be THE fitting goodbye.

    Or securing 4th spot, whatever.

    I remember that well. Always made me laugh the fact that some ST holders threw what had become a useless booklet of paper with zero value onto the pitch.......and then almost certainly renewed again shortly afterwards :D.
