Farewell White Hart Lane... mostly

It was very much a case of 'scenes' at White Hart Lane this weekend, as the final game at the old stadium saw Tottenham Hostpur beat Manchester United in a convincing 2-1 victory that sealed their second-place finish.

Spurs will leave the ground after 188 years and spend next season playing home matches at Wembley while a new home is built for them on the same spot, meaning the wrecking balls are already on their way – always a bittersweet moment for fans of any club.

Except, maybe, the one who left this note - posted this note spotted by Twitter user Runch65 - after spending a decade sat in this less-than-perfect seat.

Stuck behind one of White Hart Lane's inconveniently-placed structure beams, his amusingly bad view is typical of England's older stadiums and is exactly the sort of thing the club's new 61,000 seater will sort out.

Seemed he wasn't the only one, either:

Spurs's new stadium will in theory be open for business in time for the 2018/19, and will somewhat cheekily be 1,000 seats bigger than Arsenal's Emirates Stadium.

Fans on the front row will also be only between five and eight metres from the pitch which is unusual for new stadiums – at Manchester City they're 12m away and (again) at the Emirates it's 13m.

The question on most Spurs fans' lips is whether or not they'll enter their new home as champions after giving Chelsea a good run for their money this year.
